Matt Forte injury: Bears RB probable, should play for fantasy owners

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte is probable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte is listed as probable on the official injury report heading into Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. Forte sat out Wednesday's practice with a knee injury, but returned on Thursday and also practiced Friday.

He was officially a limited participant in practice those days, but he was there. Forte said he felt good after practice. The Bears are locked in a battle for the NFC North with the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers. Chicago's defense has been poor this season, especially the team's run defense, so the team will need all hands on deck on offense. Forte has played well of late, though he's only exceeded 100 yards in a single game this season, and that was four games ago.

Fantasy Impact: Owners afraid of Forte missing practice shouldn't worry. He's probable and should be all systems go on Sunday. A backup option is not necessary unless you hear something else early on Sunday. Forte has carried the ball 191 times for 851 yards and seven touchdowns. He hasn't been the most productive fantasy back this season, but he's too good to leave on the bench.
