Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is active for today’s game against the Saints. He’s a risky fantasy play without much upside after missing practice all week.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) missed practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints. It sounds like he’ll be a game-time decision. We’ll find out Forte’s status by noon ET on Sunday, but he’ll be a risky fantasy option if active. If not, RBs Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire figure to form a committee. McGuire is off the injury report after hurting his ankle last week.

Jets HC Todd Bowles announced Friday that DE Muhammad Wilkerson will not travel with the team for Sunday's game against the Saints. He did not give a reason, but NJ.com reports that Wilkerson was late for a team meeting Friday. IDP owners obviously need to make other plans, but he was a low-level option anyway.

Jets QB Josh McCown needs surgery on his broken left hand and is done for the season, HC Todd Bowles announced Monday. It ends a surprisingly effective campaign for McCown. He completed a career-high 67.3% of his passes and tossed 18 TDs to 9 INTs. His football future is uncertain, though, as a 38-year-old set to hit free agency. The Jets are a good bet to take a QB in the 1st round of this spring's draft.

There's "minimal damage" to Jets RB Elijah McGuire's ankle, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. An x-ray came back negative, and the MRI results were "relatively clean." It sounds like McGuire has a shot to play against the Saints this weekend, but he won't be a fantasy option. The rookie totaled just 11 touches in 2 games prior to exiting Week 15 early.

Jets QB Josh McCown broke his left hand in Sunday's loss to the Broncos, HC Todd Bowles said afterward. The team doesn't yet know if McCown's season is over, Bowles added. The fact that it's his non-throwing hand helps, but we'd be surprised if the 38-year-old played through this for the 5-8 Jets. Next up on the depth chart is QB Bryce Petty, who went 2-of-9 for 14 yards in relief of McCown today. QB Christian Hackenberg is also still kicking around in New York.

Jets QB Josh McCown injured his left (non-throwing) hand in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Broncos. He's officially questionable to return, but we doubt he will. McCown took a beating all game, and the Jets are down big. QB Bryce Petty has replaced McCown.

Update: HC Todd Bowles said after the game that McCown broke his hand. That's sure to end the QB's season.

Jets RB Elijah McGuire injured his ankle in the 1st half of Sunday's game in Denver and is officially questionable to return. His absence means a few extra touches for RBs Matt Forte and Bilal Powell.

Jets WR Robby Anderson (hamstring) is not listed on the final injury report. He reportedly aggravated a hamstring injury on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. The hamstring issue “was never anything serious,” according to insider Manish Mehta. Anderson is fine to keep in fantasy lineups but faces a tough challenge against Denver’s talented CBs.

Jets WR Robby Anderson injured his hamstring in Thursday's practice, according to insider Manish Mehta. No word yet on the severity. We'll see whether Anderson is able to practice on Friday and then how the Jets list him on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Update: Anderson "should be OK," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Jets ILB Darron Lee is inactive for today's game against the Chiefs. HC Todd Bowles reportedly decided to bench the young LB after he made a choke sign at Panthers QB Cam Newton in last week's game. Expect Lee to return for Week 14, but make sure to get him out of this week's lineups.

Update: Connor Hughes of NJ.com reports that Lee got benched for arriving late to practice Saturday. DE Muhammad Wilkerson also sat out the 1st quarter as punishment for showing up late to a meeting.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is active for today’s game against the Chiefs. The banged-up soon-to-be 32-year-old is a shaky fantasy bet.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He got in a couple of limited practices this week after playing last weekend, but HC Todd Bowles suggested Friday that Forte is a game-time decision. We'll check on his status Sunday morning, but hopefully you're not counting on him.

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (foot) is active for today's game against the Panthers and fine to use as you normally would. He has been playing through questionable tags all season.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is active for today’s game against the Panthers. That turns this into a 3-man committee with Forte, Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire. It’s completely unclear how the touches will be divvied. It’s a situation to avoid if at all possible.

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. He put in limited practices all week and has commonly played through "questionable" tags for this issue. We'll confirm his status Sunday morning but expect him to play.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is listed as questionable this weekend’s game against the Panthers after returning to a limited practice on Friday. HC Todd Bowles labeled him a game-time decision. We’ll find out his status by noon ET on Sunday, but Forte can’t be trusted in Week 12 fantasy lineups. In fact, you should try to avoid this entire backfield vs. Carolina’s 4th-ranked RB defense — especially if Forte plays.

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder, toe) and CB Morris Claiborne (foot) are active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Wilkerson carries plenty of IDP upside after delivering numbers lately. Claiborne has played well in coverage this season but is a marginal fantasy option. The presence of both helps the Jets' team D.

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder, toe) and CB Morris Claiborne (foot) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. ESPN's Rich Cimini reports "the sense is that" both defenders will play. Wilkerson has turned it on lately and should be in IDP lineups if active. Claiborne's matchup is middling and will remain risky with that foot issue. He has been having a strong season in coverage, though, and helps the Jets' team D.

Jets RB Matt Forte (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Bucs. He's dealing with swelling in his knee and didn't practice all week. His absence leaves the backfield to Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire. With Forte out back in Week 4, Powell played 66% of the offensive snaps and handled 25 touches. McGuire posted a 27% snap rate and totaled 12 touches. Consider Powell a RB2 for Week 10 and McGuire a RB3 or flex.
