12/28/2014 6:49:00 PM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte set a new NFL record for catches by a running back in a single-season with 102 in 2014.
Insight: Forte caught eight passes for 23 yards to reach the record. He also had 17 carries for 51 yards to surpass the 1,000-yard mark on the ground. Forte gained over 1,800 yards from scrimmage this season and was a PPR monster.
 
12/21/2014 5:29:00 PM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte had a nice day on Sunday.
Insight: He totaled 55 rushing yards and 40 receiving yards, and chipped in a score as well. Forte is a reliable RB1.
 
12/16/2014 9:47:00 AM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte totaled 99 yards from scrimmage, but could get into the end zone.
Insight: Forte has been limited by the floundering Bears offense. He's still a valuable asset because of his receiving skill, but he's been a bit disappointing in this year's fantasy playoffs.
 
12/5/2014 9:41:00 AM
Description: For a second consecutive weekend, Bears running back Matt Forte couldn't get anything going on the ground.
Insight: He was given just 13 carries and totaled an ugly 26 yards. At least he got into the end zone in garbage time. He also caught eight balls for 74 yards which is why he's an elite fantasy running back who can post points whether his team is ahead or behind.
 
11/27/2014 3:53:00 PM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte was borderline non-existent on Thanksgiving Day.
Insight: He rushed only five times for six yards and caught six passes for 52 yards. Forte will look to rebound in Week 14 against Dallas.
 
11/23/2014 7:23:00 PM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte scored two touchdowns in Week 12's win over Tampa Bay.
Insight: He had 23 carries for 89 yards and three receptions for 23 yards. Both scores came on the ground, as he passed Gale Sayers for fourth all-time in rushing touchdowns for the Bears. Well done.
 
11/16/2014 5:29:00 PM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte did not scored but had 117 rushing yards on 26 carries versus the Vikings.
Insight: Forte gained 175 total yards on offense. Unfortunately, all the red zone looks went to Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Along with Jamaal Charles, Forte continues to be the best fantasy running back in 2014.
 
11/10/2014 10:31:00 AM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte had a rare poor outing Sunday against Green Bay.
Insight: The Bears couldn't do anything on offense and Forte (17 rushes for 54 yards) was caught up in the mess. Considering how well he has played this season he certainly has earned a "pass."
 
Hot10/26/2014 7:21:00 PM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte had another productive day on Sunday.
Insight: He had 114 rushing yards on 19 carries, along with 54 receiving yards on six catches. Forte also caught a touchdown, and is clearly an RB1 for the rest of the season.
 
Hot10/19/2014 6:52:00 PM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte scored two more touchdowns against the Dolphins on Sunday.
Insight: Forte had 18 touches for 109 yards. He had a rushing touchdown and receiving touchdown. Forte is up there with DeMarco Murray as the best fantasy running back of the first half.
 
Hot10/13/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte did everything Sunday against Atlanta.
Insight: Forte rushed 17 times for 80 yards and two touchdowns and caught a team-high 10 balls for 77 yards. Forte has 775 yards from scrimmage in six games (129.6 ypg).
 
10/5/2014 5:53:00 PM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte gained 166 yards of total offense and had one touchdown against the Panthers on Sunday.
Insight: Forte led the Bears in rushing and receiving. He had 17 carries for 61 yards and 12 receptions for 105 yards. His touchdown came through the air. He was likely considered a top-four running back along with LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles, and Adrian Peterson. Among those guys, Forte has been the most consistent this season.
 
9/28/2014 5:09:00 PM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte rushed 23 times for 122 yards and caught four passes for 34 yards in Sunday's loss to the Packers.
Insight: It was clear Chicago was trying to establish something on the ground as 19 of their first 33 plays were runs. Forte did fail to find the end zone again, so a quarter of the way through the year, Forte is still scoreless.
 
9/16/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte had a tough night against San Francisco's front seven, rushing for just 21 yards, on 12 carries.
Insight: Forte couldn't break loose receiving either, catching five balls for just 15 yards. We'll chalk this one up to a defensive game plan designed to stop the two healthiest threats - Forte and Martellus Bennett. Forte will face a tough Jets defense, ranked third in yards allowed, in Week 3, so be prepared for more of the same.
 
12/19/2013 8:19:00 PM
Description: Bears running back Matt Forte needs just 39 rushing yards over the final two games to set a career high.
Insight: Forte already has a career-high 66 catches and is 26 receiving yards away from setting a career high in that category as well. He also has nine total touchdowns, his most since 2010. It's been a fantastic season for Forte in his first year under offensive mastermind Marc Trestman.

Insight: Forte suffered a slightly hyperextended knee in Week 12, but he is expected to play Sunday against the Vikings.

Description: Chicago halfback Matt Forte was unable to practice on Wednesday. SOURCE: Jeff Dickerson, ESPN Chicago
Insight: Forte is still recovering from a knee injury he suffered in last week's loss to St. Louis. We'd be surprised if he doesn't play Sunday against the Vikings.
 
11/26/2013 5:44:00 PM

Insight: He'll be evaluated further on Wednesday, but he's expected to be ready to play in Week 13 against the Vikings, according to csnchicago.com.
