Summary

Running Back Rank: #6All Players: #8
Forte had another big season, mainly because of his huge numbers in the passing game. Forte had more than 100 receptions, catching 102 balls for 808 yards. He finished with more than 1,800 total yards and 10 touchdowns. His rushing totals weren't off the charts, but he still finished with more than 1,000-rushing yards once again. Forte had 100 or more total yards nine games last season. He was the most consistent factor in the Bears' offense. Forte has 1,000-yard rushing seasons five of seven. He has more than 1,000 total yards every season in the NFL. He is 29 years old but has more than 300 carries just once during his career, so he doesn't have a ton of wear and tear despite being in the league several seasons. Forte has good size and runs hard. He isn't a huge big-play back but will make some big plays. He'll churn out some tough yards and make a lot of plays out of the backfield as a receiver. Forte is a solid overall NFL back. The Bears will have a new offense this year, so Forte could get a little less work, especially in the passing game. He likely will remain the focal point of the offense, though.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Forte remains an elite fantasy back. He is getting older and likely won't get the catches of last season, but he still has plenty of good total yardage potential. He can get around 1,600 total yards and 11 touchdowns. Expect his reception total to be more around 70 receptions. He is a solid first-round pick for fantasy teams.
