Bears | Matt Forte thinks he could get more receptions

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte said he believes he could be more involved in the passing game this season under head coach Marc Trestman. "I would expect (to be used more in 2013). Coach Trestman, I think he said he watched a lot of film on me and has seen me run different routes," Forte said. "So we'll get back to catching the ball out of the backfield like we did the prior years."

Fantasy Tip: Forte saw his reception total and receiving yards drop a bit last season but was a solid contributor in the passing game the first four years in the league. Forte probably would be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues if he is more involved in the passing game. Forte should be considered a solid No. 2 running back in all formats.
