Matt Forte Fantasy Update: Chicago Bears RB Has No Problems Running Against Minnesota Vikings

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte is having no issues running all over the Minnesota Vikings defense. Through the start of the third quarter, Forte has 87 yards on 13 carries, but no touchdowns. Marion Barber has the Bears' one rushing touchdown.

Forte has the NFL's only 200-yard rushing game this season. After Jay Cutler was nearly turned into ground beef in the Bears' first three games, Forte has been the focal point of the offense. His 205-yard game came against Carolina in week 4, and rushed for 116-yards the week after that. 

Through the first five weeks of the season, Forte had 440 yards on 82 carries with one touchdown. He also had 30 receptions for 345 yards and one touchdown prior to the Bears' game against the Vikings

Forte is ranked third on Fake Teams' week 6 running back rankings
