Season Projections
A lot of pundits are comparing the move of Forte from the Bears to the Jets as similar to Frank Gore's move from the Bay Area to Indianapolis in 2015. For those not paying attention, that is not a particularly flattering comparison; Gore struggled mightily to gain traction in the Colts backfield, further proving the adage that running backs whose age are on the wrong side of 30 cannot succeed on a new team. But Forte, in many ways, is not Frank Gore. Forte is a durable, multi-skilled back who has made a career of avoiding big hits and injuries. Forte seems to slot in nicely with the Jets offense, providing a versatility that previous thumpers in the NY backfield (looking at you Chris Ivory) never had. Chan Gailey's offense has always been kind to the receiving running back, and even with the brick-handed Ivory around last year, Jets' running backs still received 125 targets. Forte should gobble up the majority of these in 2016, and provide solid RB2 numbers all year, with an explosively high RB1 ceiling in PPR leagues. Don't overspend, but don't overlook either.

Rushing: 826 Yards, 6 TD.
Receiving: 47 Receptions, 411 Yards, 4 TD.
