Summary

Running Back Rank: #10All Players: #13
Forte had a career season, setting highs in rushing yards, receptions, receiving yards and tied for a career high in touchdowns. He was a great fit in the Bears new offense and got tons of touches as a rusher and a receiver. He also got more goal-line work, which was another positive. Forte finished with 12 touchdowns. Forte had five 100-yard rushing games and more than 100 total yards 12 of 16 games. He was as consistent as any back in the game. Forte has 1,000-yard rushing seasons four of six. He has more than 1,000 total yards every season in the NFL. He is 28 years old but has more than 300 carries just once during his career, so he doesn't have a ton of wear and tear just yet. 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. He'll continue to get plenty of work in this offense.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Forte is an elite fantasy back. He should be considered in that top group and is a top-five pick come draft day. He has huge yardage potential and is a good bet for double-digit scores once again. We would expect a little bit of a dip in yardage this season but not a whole lot. Expect around 1,800 total yards and 13 or so touchdowns.

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte has struggled this season, posting just 136 rushing yards on 42 carries through three games, for a career-worst 3.2 yards per carry, and he has yet to visit the end zone on the ground or through the air. However, that could change in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers, a team which ranks 30th in the NFL against the rush, allowing 156.3 yards per game. In two games against the Packers last season, Forte had at least 110 rushing yards in each game, and he averaged 5.1 yards per carry while posting 235 rushing yards and three touchdowns while also hauling in a touchdown reception.
