Matt Forte scores for fantasy owners before leaving with ankle injury

Norm Hall

Matt Forte made an early exit in Week 16. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Forte carried the ball 12 times for 88 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Cardinals. He also managed a single reception for seven yards during his playing time.

Forte injured his right ankle again and did not return to action. He was spotted wearing a walking boot afterwards.

Fantasy Impact: The last thing the Bears need is for Forte to deal with his ankle issue all over again. Kahlil Bell was completely ineffective as a runner in Forte's stead. Chicago will want him back as soon as possible to take on the Lions.

Be sure to check on Forte's status as the week goes. No word has been given yet about his injury.
