Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte (ankle) practiced on Friday and is expected to play in Week 13. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte practiced on Friday and remains on track to play in Week 13. Forte left last weekend's win over the Minnesota Vikings with a right ankle injury, giving way to Michael Bush. Forte sprained the same ankle against Green Bay earlier this season but missed just one game.

Forte, who had 42 yards on 14 carries against Minnesota, said earlier in the week that he expected to play on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: Forte being available has all the making of a platoon system on Sunday against Seattle. Bush was effective in Week 12, scoring two touchdowns for the Bears.

It's not clear how much either player will be used but both players should be considered No. 2/3 running backs or flex plays for Week 13.
