Michael Bush takes backseat to Matt Forte on Monday Night Football: Fantasy implications

Michael Bush had 10 carries compared to Matt Forte's 13 on Monday Night Football despite Forte apparently aggravating his ankle injury early in the game between the Bears and the Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

Michael Bush had 10 carries for 29 yards on Monday Night Football when the Chicago Bears took on the Dallas Cowboys. Matt Forte led the Bears' rushing attack with 13 carries for 52 yards, despite aggravating his ankle injury on his first carry. Bush added one reception for eight yards in the win.

Fantasy Impact: Forte briefly left the game on his first carry of the night, but came back to re-take the lion's share of touches out of the Bears' backfield. As Forte gets healthier, expect Bush's production to scale back a bit. Bush is still likely to leech goal-line touches, however, making him a potential Flex option especially with bye weeks upcoming. He is still worth hanging onto in standard formats.
