Matt Forte suffers no setbacks after Monday night win: Fantasy implications

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte felt nothing more than "normal soreness" after Monday's win over the Dallas Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte felt nothing more than "normal soreness" after Monday night's win over the Dallas Cowboys, coach Lovie Smith said Wednesday. Forte got the start after missing Week 3 because of an ankle injury. He finished with 52 yards on 13 carries against Dallas. The Bears face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will be looking for more than 52 yards in Week 5 but they will be happy to have Forte back in their lineups. The Bears backfield didn't produce a lot against Dallas and Forte's healthy probably contributed. He should again get more carries this week than Michael Bush, who has been bothered by a shoulder injury. Forte is a fringe No. 1/2 fantasy option at RB, while Bush is a flex play.
