Matt Forte
RBMatchup Alerts
#19 at GB Probable: Knee

Matt Forte returned to action from his MCL injury. He was named the starter, but split carries almost 50/50 with Jeremy Langford. Forte was given 15 carries and rushed for 44 yards. He also grabbed a catch for nine yards.

Fantasy Impact: Forte looked like a guy who has not played for a few weeks. He was hesitant and sluggish at times. Jeremy Langford was the more explosive back on Thursday. Forte will likely see a similar workload in Week 13 as well. He will be a borderline RB1 against the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact: The situation no one wanted - a running back committee. Langford has more fantasy points than any RB over the last fortnight, and his play should help the Bears manage Forte's workload. But frankly, this has become a mess for fantasy players.

Forte could be back and he kills the Packers but he also could be limited so tough to buy fully into

Forte is questionable to play, if you have Thanksgiving dinner plans and cannot change your lineup, I would avoid him. I think even if he plays, Langford will see more work than what Forte was accustomed to before the injury.

As long as Forte is ready to go, you play him.

So many significant and/or season ending injuries in the NFL this past week.  By the time Thursday comes around there has already been a lot written about these situations, specifically how to value the backups.  The aspect that you probably haven't seen covered as much at Razzball is how to value the players lost for the season in keeper or dynasty leagues.  So that's what I'll be ...
