Matt Forte injury update: Fantasy value rising after Bears' back says he will play Sunday

Dilip Vishwanat

Can Forte run wild against the Seahawks as other backs have recently done? We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte (ankle) says he will play on Sunday against the Seahawks according to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times. Forte was injured in the Bears Week 12 win over the Vikings and left the game in favor of backup Michael Bush.

After missing four games in 2011, Forte has played in ten out of a possible eleven games this season, rushing for 683 yards with three touchdowns.

Fantasy Take: The Seahawks run defense has broken down in recent weeks as they tumble further down the rankings in that regard. However, Forte has not been as productive this season with just two 100-yard games, very little production in the passing game, and only the three scores.

There's also the possibility that Forte plays but is limited, making him a lower-end RB2 option unless he's a full go without limitation.
