Matt Forte marked active by Bears, but fantasy value potentially limited

Wesley Hitt

Matt Forte will play Sunday when the Bears take on the Seahawks. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Forte is active for Sunday's game between the Chicago Bears and the Seattle Seahawks. Forte was limited in practice throughout the week after suffering an ankle injury during the Bears' win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12.

Whether Forte will be limited during Sunday's game remains to be seen. Michael Bush could be in line for significant role yet again after picking up 60 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries last week.

Fantasy Impact: Bush's emergence and the fact that the Bears are playing a stout defense this week makes Forte a potentially risky fantasy play. He is a potential Flex play if you're desperate, but no one would blame owners for sitting him. Forte hasn't averaged over 3.0 yards per carry since Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans.
