Matt Forte remains a game-time decision for Bears, fantasy owners

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte (ankle) will be a game-time decision on Monday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte will be a game-time decision for Monday against the Dallas Cowboys, coach Lovie Smith said on Monday. Forte missed last week's win over the St. Louis Rams because of an ankle injury but Smith said during a radio appearance on WBBM-AM 780 that Forte has made a lot of progress. If Forte can't play, Michael Bush is expected to start.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will likely have already decided whether or not they plan to use Forte because there won't be many options to replace him with if he can't play. This is a bigger concern to fantasy owners playing Bush, who should still see most of the carries if Forte is active.
