Bilal Powell (calf) wasn't listed on the Jets' final injury report for Week 7 against the Dolphins.

Robby Anderson (ankle) and Matt Forte (knee, toe) were also removed from the injury report. With New York employing a three-man backfield, Powell, Forte and Elijah McGuire will all be risky fantasy plays against Miami.
Oct 20 - 3:09 PM

Matt Forte (knee, toe) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Bilal Powell (calf) is expected to return, but the Jets have made it clear they want Forte leading their backfield. He'll be an RB4 against the Dolphins.
Oct 19 - 4:03 PM

Updating an earlier report, Robby Anderson (ankle) returned to a full practice on Thursday.

It puts Anderson on track to play Sunday against Miami. Anderson leads the Jets with 296 receiving yards but has caught just 18-of-41 targets from Josh McCown. He's the definition of boom or bust.
Oct 19 - 2:08 PM

Updating an earlier report, Bilal Powell (calf) returned to a full practice on Thursday.

He's been cleared to play Sunday against the Dolphins after sitting out one game with a strained calf. Powell should lead the Jets' backfield committee but faces workload concerns with Matt Forte and Elijah McGuire still occupying important roles. All three are risky fantasy bets.
Oct 19 - 2:07 PM

Robby Anderson (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

It is his second missed practice in a row. If he has any hope of suiting up this week, he probably needs to get in some work Friday. Jermaine Kearse, Jeremy Kerley, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins will pick up more snaps if Anderson cannot go.

Bilal Powell (calf) did not practice Thursday.

It is his second missed practice in a row, making it highly unlikely he returns this week. Matt Forte will once again handle the load against the Dolphins.
Oct 19 - 11:35 AM

Matt Forte (knee, toe) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Forte looked healthy in his return to action last week, out-touching rookie Elijah McGuire 17-10 in a loss to New England. With Bilal Powell (calf) still absent from practice, look for Forte and McGuire to split reps again Sunday versus Miami.
Oct 18 - 5:20 PM

Robby Anderson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Anderson went down late in the fourth quarter on a deep-ball chuck from Josh McCown. Prior to that, Anderson caught 4-of-12 targets for 76 yards against New England. If Anderson sits, it'll be Jermaine Kearse, Jeremy Kerley, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, and Matt Forte catching the balls against Miami.
Oct 18 - 3:48 PM

Bilal Powell (calf) did not practice Wednesday.

Powell stretched with the team but didn't do much of anything after that. It's a similar situation to last week for Powell, who ended up sitting Week 6. In his absence, Matt Forte totaled 81 yards on 17 touches, while Elijah McGuire filled change-up duties. It could be the same thing this week in Miami.
Oct 18 - 3:46 PM

Matt Forte played 44-of-76 offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

He played 58 percent of the Jets' snaps compared to only 33 percent for sixth-round rookie Elijah McGuire (25 snaps) and 11 percent for Travaris Cadet (eight snaps). McGuire saw 10 carries to Forte's nine, though Forte drew eight targets in the passing game while McGuire didn't see any. Obviously Forte wasn't limited at all in his return from turf toe, though his workload will obviously take a hit once Bilal Powell returns from a strained calf.
Oct 16 - 9:09 AM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins reeled in eight-of-11 targets for 46 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets’ Week 6 loss to the Patriots.

Seferian-Jenkins was a target hog once again, particularly in the first half when he saw seven of his 11 looks from Josh McCown. He put New York on the board first with a one-yard touchdown in the first quarter. That came on a play where he was able to create separation from Elandon Roberts. ASJ nearly had another touchdown in the fourth quarter but the play was changed to a touchback on review. The Jets have a right to be upset as Seferian-Jenkins lost possession briefly but recovered and should have been credited with the touchdown. That play would later be the difference in the game as New England won by a slim 24-17 margin. ASJ has scored in two straight games while seeing at least eight targets in each contest. He’ll be a back-end TE1 next week against Miami.
Oct 15 - 6:08 PM

Jermaine Kearse absorbed all four of his targets for 79 yards Sunday in the Jets’ Week 6 loss to the Patriots.

His 79 yards were a season-high. Over half of those came on a 44-yard completion from Josh McCown with 6:32 remaining in the fourth quarter. Kearse has had a handful of productive weeks but hasn’t been consistent enough to warrant much more than a bench spot in fantasy leagues. He gets a road matchup against Miami in Week 7.
Oct 15 - 6:06 PM

Robby Anderson collected four catches for 76 yards on 12 targets Sunday in the Jets’ Week 6 loss to the Patriots.

Anderson got busy in the second half with three catches for 53 yards after the break. Obviously it wasn’t a very efficient outing, but that comes with the territory with deep threats like Anderson. He drew an end-zone look on first-and-goal in the fourth quarter but was overthrown by Josh McCown. Anderson went down with an apparent injury on a desperation heave with 20 seconds left in the game. His health will have to be monitored ahead of next week's game against the Dolphins.
Oct 15 - 6:05 PM

Josh McCown completed 31-of-47 passes for 354 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions while rushing three times for 21 yards Sunday in the Jets’ Week 6 loss to the Patriots.

McCown got off to a booming start, staking the Jets to a 14-0 lead with a pair of first-half touchdown passes. He was especially hot on New York’s opening drive, going five-of-eight for 68 yards while adding another 16 yards on a quarterback keeper. His second touchdown of the day, a 31-yard strike to Jeremy Kerley, came on a play where McCown had to scramble to avoid a sack. McCown hurt the Jets with an interception late in the second quarter, which allowed New England to even the score before halftime. He was intercepted again on New York’s first drive of the second half on a pass that deflected off Eric Tomlinson and into the hands of Devin McCourty. McCown should have had a third touchdown pass to Austin Seferian-Jenkins in the fourth quarter but the play was ruled a touchback on review. He’s now the sixth quarterback to hang 300 yards on New England this year. McCown will face the Dolphins in Week 7.
Oct 15 - 6:04 PM

Elijah McGuire accrued 22 yards on 10 carries Sunday in the Jets’ Week 6 loss to the Patriots.

He got the "start" but ended up working in tandem with Matt Forte, who returned after missing the previous week with turf toe. McGuire got New York’s first goal-line chance of the afternoon but was stuffed at the one-yard line. Forte spelled him on the next play, but was also unsuccessful. McGuire lost most of the passing-down work to Forte, who reeled in a game-high eight catches for 59 yards including 4-for-40 in the first half. With Forte healthy again and Bilal Powell (calf) a candidate to return next week against the Dolphins, McGuire’s window of fantasy relevance may have just closed.
