How Much of an Impact Will Matt Forte's Receiving Skills Have for the Jets?

Since the Jets signed Matt Forte, I have thought the move was as much about adding a number three option to the passing game as it was about adding a number one back. The proof might be in the production of the man the Jets re-signed as the number two back behind Forte, Bilal Powell. Over a six game stretch near the end of the season, Powell came to life as a receiving option out of the backfield. He averaged over 5 catches and just shy of 50 yards per game.

What will be the net effect on the Jets' offense of replacing Chris Ivory with Matt Forte? During the 2016 offseason the Jets made the decision to let Chris Ivory go in free agency.  The Jets replaced Ivory with Matt Forte.  The net effect on the Jets' offense should be a likely increase in the passing game and a likely decrease in the running game.  But will the Jets' offense be better or worse overall?  Let's see if we can make a rough estimate. In order to quantify this, I am going to assume Forte catches his usual number of passes per year as established by his track record with the...
