Matt Forte rushed seven times for 41 yards while adding five catches for 41 yards Sunday in the Jets’ Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

Forte did a nice job to move the chains on a weaving, 21-yard catch-and-run in the first quarter. He had more success on the ground Sunday than he did a week earlier, especially in the second half when he rushed for 37 yards on five carries. Forte out-touched Bilal Powell by a thin 12-11 margin, though Forte was more involved in the passing game with five targets. He’s now caught 13 passes for 100 yards over his last two contests. The timeshare with Powell curbs his upside, though Forte’s usage in the passing game will keep him in the RB3/flex discussion next week against the Falcons.

Bilal Powell spanned 43 yards on nine carries while adding two catches for 40 yards Sunday in the Jets’ Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

Powell came bursting out of the gates with a 31-yard catch-and-run on New York’s first play from scrimmage. He saw more carries than backfield mate Matt Forte (9-7) but Forte was more involved in the passing game with five catches for 41 yards. Notably, Powell got the first crack at goal-line work following a Jay Cutler interception, but he was stuffed for no gain. Powell didn’t get another chance from that distance as Josh McCown kept it himself for a one-yard touchdown on the following play. With Forte eating into his workload, Powell will merely be a flex option against the Falcons in Week 8.

Elijah McGuire totaled seven yards on three carries Sunday in the Jets’ Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

The sixth-round rookie was merely a third wheel Sunday, operating behind both Matt Forte and Bilal Powell, who returned after sitting out Week 6 with a calf strain. McGuire may be worth a hold in deeper formats but he’s not going to be of much use to fantasy owners now that Forte and Powell are back at full strength.
Oct 22 - 6:13 PM

Austin Seferian-Jenkins pulled in three-of-five targets for 21 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets’ Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

All of his catches came in the second half. He couldn’t have been more wide-open on his 10-yard touchdown, which came on a play where Josh McCown did a nice job to elude pressure by scrambling outside the pocket. The touchdown was Seferian-Jenkins’ third in as many games, though the five targets were his fewest in a game since Week 4 against the Jaguars. No one would ever confuse ASJ for Gronk or Travis Kelce, but he’s stablished a fairly safe floor at a paper-thin fantasy position. He’s graduated from streamer status and should be thought of as an every-week TE1 going forward.
Oct 22 - 6:12 PM

Jermaine Kearse secured one-of-four targets for 29 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets’ Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

Kearse came down with a 29-yard touchdown on New York’s opening drive but wasn’t heard from again after that. He’s now scored in two of his last three games and four times total for the season, which leads the team. Kearse will look to visit the end zone again versus the Falcons in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 6:10 PM

Robby Anderson nabbed three-of-five targets for 35 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets’ Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

It was an eventful game for Anderson, who chipped in with his second touchdown of the year on an 18-yard strike from Josh McCown late in the first quarter. He celebrated this occasion by jumping into the front row and taking a moment to enjoy the scenery. Anderson hurt the Jets later by throwing his helmet across the field in frustration, resulting in an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on New York’s final drive of the game. Anderson will be a last-gasp WR4 against the Falcons next week.
Oct 22 - 6:09 PM

Josh McCown completed 17-of-27 passes for 209 yards with three touchdowns and one interception while adding one yard and a rushing touchdown on three carries Sunday in the Jets’ Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

He got off to a blistering start Sunday, hitting Jermaine Kearse for a 29-yard touchdown in the first quarter before finding Robby Anderson for an 18-yard score later in the same period. McCown scored from a yard out on a QB keeper just before halftime before connecting with a wide-open Austin Seferian-Jenkins for a 10-yard touchdown late in the third quarter. However, McCown blew the game in the fourth quarter by throwing an interception deep in his own territory. That led to Cody Parkey’s game-winning field goal with 22 seconds remaining. It ended up being a productive fantasy game for McCown but the Jets obviously would have preferred the W. He faces the Falcons at home in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 6:08 PM

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder, toe) is active for Week 7 against the Dolphins.

Wilkerson was the only Jet listed as questionable for Sunday's game. OLB Freddie Bishop, RB Travaris Cadet, OLB Obum Gwacham, QB Christian Hackenberg, OL Jonotthan Harrison, CB Derrick Jones and TE Jordan Leggett round out the Jets' inactives for Week 7. All are healthy scratches except Leggett, who was ruled out with a knee injury on Friday.
Oct 22 - 11:40 AM

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder, toe) is expected to play Week 7 against the Dolphins.

Playing through multiple injuries for weeks, coach Todd Bowles hinted Wilkerson may not play earlier this week, but he will apparently give it a go. Wilkerson has yet to record a sack through six games.
Oct 22 - 9:47 AM

Jets coach Todd Bowles said DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder, toe) could sit out this week.

Wilkerson has been playing through multiple injuries. He hasn't practiced much since the start of the season and the Jets could rest him Sunday to get him healthy. Wilkerson's absence would be an upgrade to Miami's run game.
Oct 21 - 7:10 PM

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.
