Bears RB Matt Forte turns in strong performance Week 8
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Bears running back Matt Forte managed a strong performance Week 8 against the Patriots.

Forte gained 114 yards on 19 carries during the contest. He continued to provide value in the passing game, hauling in six receptions for 54 yards and a score. Forte's receiving score came on a 25 yard route where he sold the short pass, and blew past his defender for the score. His receiving ability made him a factor in the second half, when the Bears were getting blown out. 

Forte is on a bye Week 9.

Bears RB Matt Forte scores twice in losing effort
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Bears running back Matt Forte was the lone bright spot in his team's Week 7 defeat to Miami at Soldier Field.

Forte had an abysmal first half, rushing for only 11 yards on two carries. He bounced back with a 10-yard touchdown reception on the opening drive of the second half and a 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. He posted 109 yards of total offense, rushing for 49 yards and a score on 12 carries. He led the team with six catches for 60 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in a 27-14 defeat.

Forte and the Bears will look to get back in the win column Week 8 at New England.

Matt Forte back to being a monster
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Going up against what we now know are three of the league's toughest run defenses in the Bills, the 49ers and the Jets, Bears running back Matt Forte looked like a potential bust the first three weeks. Nobody's thinking that now.

With a combined 157 yards and two touchdowns Week 6 at Atlanta, Forte has a combined 150 yards in three straight games. Of course, a large percentage of them are on the receiving end, but that's part of his appeal. His 10 catches in Week 6 give him double-digit catches in back-to-back games and at least five in all six games this season.

He's a monster, particularly in points-per-reception leagues. In fact, the only player I think I'd prefer to him in that format is DeMarco Murray, and that's just because he's the best player period.

So don't think about selling high or anything. This is Matt Forte, this is what he does, and you're lucky to have him. You may have preferred Jamaal Charles or LeSean McCoy on Draft Day, but he's overtaken them with his consistency.

Matt Forte totals 157 yards, two touchdowns in Week 6 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bears running back Matt Forte delivered a huge performance in his team's 27-13 Week 6 win over the Falcons Sunday, rushing for 80 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries while adding 10 catches on 13 targets for 77 yards.

Forte broke a tie with his first score late in the first quarter, which came on a draw out of a shotgun formation, then extended the lead on a similar play in the fourth quarter. After going four weeks without a trip to the end zone, the lead back now has three scores in his last two weeks. He's also manged to rack up more than 150 total yards in each of his last three games, and he has 22 receptions in the last two weeks. Forte will look to keep rolling in Week 7 when the Dolphins come to town.
