In the third preseason game against Seattle, Matt Forte only had 3 carries and was only on the field for two drives. The RB didn't have a target but did rush for 17 yards on his limited carries.
Fantasy Impact: Nothing to worry about. As with most top RBs, the Bears thought it it was better to rest Forte than expose him to any unnecessary pounding. Also with the No.2 job in Chicago unsettled, the Bears decided to give rookie Ka'Deem Carey more carries with the first team offense. Forte is an elite RB and worth at least a top 4 pick in standard leagues and top 3 in PPR.

On the ground, Forte couldn't find any room taking 4 carries for -2 yards. On the plus side, the RB did bring in 3 catches on 3 targets for 22 yards.
Fantasy Impact: Forte showed off why he is a consensus top 5 overall pick in 2014. Even on a night where he didn't produce on the ground, the Tulane product added some nice yards in the air. After finishing #3 in total yards in 2013, expect Forte to do more of the same this year and be a great choice at his current #4 ADP.

With the way officials are calling […]

The first three players off the board in almost all fantasy football drafts this year will will be, in no particular order, Adrian Peterson, LeSean McCoy, and Jamaal Charles. But you have the fourth pick. Who do you take? You could go quarterback. Peyton Manning vs. Aaron Rodgers is a reasonable debate to have. You could go wide receiver where you’d face the question: Calvin Johnson or Demar...

There is a lot of hype for the upcoming season surrounding the Chicago Bears. After a disappointing 8-8 campaign last year, the Bears showed hope and promise under their rookie head coach Marc Trestman and the brightest spot had to be how running back Matt Forte flourished in this offense. Forte is a very versatile and dynamic player. I wouldn’t say he’s “great” at any aspe...
