RB Matt Forte has announced his retirement. The 32-year-old has been running on fumes the past couple of seasons, averaging just 3.7 yards per carry. He was a fantasy stud in his heyday, ripping off 8 straight top-12 PPR finishes from 2008 to 2015. Forte's departure leaves the Jets with 29-year-old Bilal Powell and sophomore Elijah McGuire. We'll see if and what they add to the backfield in free agency and the draft.
