Matt Forte doesn't expect to slow down soon
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bears running back Matt Forte enjoyed getting a lot of work last season -- 363 touches to be exact. He expects it to continue next year and has no problem with it.

Forte will enter his seventh season at the age of 28 in 2014.

"It wasn't like I was worn out at the end of the season or anything. I only averaged 18 or 19 (touches) a game but with the catches you get more touches that way," Forte told NFL.com. "I think age is just a number like everyone says. It doesn't really matter if someone is 29, 28, 30 years old. It just depends on how their body feels and at the same time if they take care of their body."

He found the end zone again on a 5-yard run and on a 1-yard run in the third quarter.

Matt Forte ready to bounce back
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Bears running back Matt Forte will be seeking a bounce-back performance in a must-win home game against the Packers in Week 17.

Forte was limited to a season-low 29 yards on nine carries in Week 16 against the Eagles. He is only 10 yards shy of surpassing his season-high of 1,238 rushing yards set in his rookie season in 2008. He has gone seven straight games without a rushing touchdown. His last rushing touchdown came in Week 9 at Green Bay, where he rushed for 125 on a season-high 24 carries in a 27-20 win.

Forte will be facing a Green Bay defense that has allowed 125.3 yards per game on the ground, which is the seventh most allowed in the league this season. Opposing running backs have scored 18.27 Fantasy points per game this season against the Packers. Consider Forte, who has a favorable matchup, a solid starting option in all formats for the final week of the regular season.
