Matt Forte is active for Sunday's game between the Chicago Bears and the Jacksonville Jaguars. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Forte is active for Sunday's game between the Chicago Bears and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Forte missed Week 3 with an ankle injury, but was able to play last week and will play this week after being limited in practice through Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: With another week removed from the original injury, Forte should be a better fantasy option this week after a ho-hum performance against the Dallas Cowboys. He also goes up against what has been one of the worst run defenses in the league. The Jags are giving up 150.3 yards rushing per game, which is only better than the New York Jets and the New Orleans Saints through four weeks this season. Forte is a safe fantasy start this week.
