Matt Forte gives fantasy owners 91 yards, touchdown

Jonathan Daniel

Forte rushed for 50 yards and got 41 more through the air. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Forte tallied 91 all-purpose yards Sunday, adding a third-quarter touchdown as the Bears downed the Bengals, 24-21.

Forte rushed 19 yards for 50 yards, adding four receptions for 41 yards. His touchdown with 3:22 left in the third quarter brought Chicago within 21-17.

Fantasy impact: Forte dominated the Bears' running game, as Michael Bush only got the carry six times. He was targeted six times with passes, meaning the ball went his way 25 times. That would be a high pace to maintain for an entire season, but it shows the Bears aren't hesitant to go to Forte.

The downside is that Forte's 19 carries went for only 50 yards, leaving him at 2.6 yards per carry. That rate will have to rise for Forte's value to stay high.
