This backfield has remained a messy one throughout the season, but one that has had value in certain matchups. This isn't likely one of them. Forte has totaled 46 touches in his last three games, which is solid volume, while Powell has totaled 39 touches in those games. It's near a 50/50 timeshare, though Forte is the more valuable fantasy asset. Most will look at the Broncos last week and see what they allowed to Kenyan Drake, but they were missing three defensive starters in that game, and two of them were from the defensive line. We have to pay attention to the status of both Domata Peko and Derek Wolfe this week, but the Broncos have allowed under 3.5 yards per carry this season and just six rushing touchdowns.

Matt Forte rushes for 58 yards, catches touchdown in victory

Matt Forte was busy during Sunday's home win against the Kansas City Chiefs, rushing for a team-high 58 yards on 14 carries, with his longest run going for 14 yards. Forte also caught three passes for 33 yards and touchdown, with his longest catch of the game going for 21 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Forte has now played in two consecutive games since returning from injury and has looked good doing so. If you hung on to Forte in your season-long leagues, he would make for a good flex option heading into the fantasy playoffs in Week 14. Forte is also a sneaky-good DFS option going forward, as his price on most DFS websites is affordable and can fill up the stat sheet quickly.
