Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte doesn't sound happy about not getting chances to score around the goal line. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte doesn't sound happy about being pulled out of the game around the goal line. On one first quarter drive on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, Forte broke off a 15-yard run that got the ball down to the 1. Two plays later, Michael Bush carried it in for the touchdown. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Forte said that that had been happening his whole career and added that it was the coordinator's call. Forte had eight more touches than Bush in Sunday's win.

Fantasy Impact: Forte's fantasy owners share his frustrations. He remains one of the more valuable backs in fantasy football, especially in PPR leagues. His fantasy, value, however, has been reduced by a lack of touchdowns. Maybe this comment will help him get some chances from in close but expect Bush to still get most goal line opportunities.
