Matt Forte delivers a dud for fantasy football owners in Week 16 loss to Eagles

Rich Schultz

Forte saved one of his worst performances of the season for last.

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte never had a chance to get going in the team's 54-11 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football.

Forte ran just nine times for 29 yards and caught four passes for 25 yards. With Chicago falling behind early, Forte wasn't a big focus of the game plan. He will likely be more involved against the Packers in Week 17.

Fantasy spin: Forte has been a fantasy football star in 2013, but he finished the season with one of his biggest duds of the year. Chicago's performance as a whole was dreadful, which was surprising considering the team had a chance to clinch the NFC North win a win.

Still, Marc Trestman's presence in Chicago has provided a big boost to the offense. Moving forward, Forte will likely continue to be a star fantasy football back for at least a handful more years.
