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.
