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 tied a career-low with five carries in the team's Week 13 loss to the Detroit Lions, and he said the team can't afford to repeat the strategy going forward. 'It's of the utmost importance, especially if we're playing outside, with the weather and stuff,' Forte said. 'You can't just sit back there and throw 50 passes a game and expect to win.'

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte carried 23 times for a season-high 122 yards and no touchdowns in the Week 4 game against the Green Bay, and he added 49 yards on five receptions. Forte went over 10,000 career total yards from scrimmage in the loss.
Fantasy Impact: Forte had a huge game, looking more like the back from last season, which is great news for fantasy teams.

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte recently voiced his displeasure with the Bears' running game. Though Forte has struggled running the ball this year, he still leads all running backs in receptions (19) and is third among running backs in receiving yards (145).

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.

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte is frustrated his performance early this season. He currently has a 3.2 yards per carry average and has 54 rushing yards on 25 carries in the last two weeks. 'It is frustrating, especially during the game because it's not because we are not calling runs,' Forte said. 'We are calling runs.'
Fantasy Impact: Forte will get going. We aren't too worried about him.

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte said he believes the team could have the top offense in the NFL this upcoming season. 'If we keep working hard we're going to take this offense, hopefully, to the top of the league,' Forte said. 'There's no ceiling. There's no limit that you can put on it.'
