Matt Forte with 'normal soreness' after game, fantasy status still uncertain

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Matt Forte would have been 'limited' if the Bears had held Wednesday practice. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte would have been a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, but the Bears did not hold one since they played the Cowboys on Monday night. Head coach Lovie Smith said that Forte didn't come away with anything other than the normal soreness of a game after getting 13 carries against Dallas, so it seems as though he didn't re-aggravate the injury even if he's still not completely healthy. Also on the 'would have been limited' list for Chicago was receiver Earl Bennett, who is dealing with a hand injury.

Fantasy Take: It would be hard to sit an active Forte, even if he is not 100%. He will be facing the Jaguars, a defense ranked third-to-last in the NFL in rushing defense, so it almost becomes a must-start even if Forte is only limited to 15 touches. Against this defense, he could easily rack up 75 yards and a touchdown.
