Matt Forte looks like a top fantasy pick after third preseason game

Thearon W. Henderson

The Raiders became the latest preseason victims for Matt Forte on Friday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Forte's dominant preseason continued Friday in Oakland, as he rushed for 76 yards on six carries against a dismal Raiders defense. Forte also hauled in two receptions for 33 yards and touchdown.

Through three preseason games, Forte is averaging 9.93 yards per carry. His teammates, coaches and writers around the league have all noted how dominant he looks in 2013.

Fantasy impact: Owners are drafting Forte on average at No. 12 overall. That's exactly where he should be going. Marc Trestman's arrival in Chicago is pointing towards a huge year for Forte, and every owner should take note.

If you're in a PPR league, you should consider taking Forte in the first round. Michael Bush is still in the mix to steal touchdowns at the goal line, but that's never been Forte's game. As long as he stays healthy, he will put up impressive numbers in the Bears offense this season.
