Jets | Matt Forte an unlikely option for Jets

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 15:40:57 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte probably won't be pursued by the New York Jets in free agency despite the Jets having three impending free-agent running backs of their own.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't make sense for the Jets to attempt to sign Forte considering his age (30 years old) and how much action he's seen in his career already. The Jets may be more comfortable with retaining Bilal Powell and drafting and/or signing a lower caliber running back.

Patriots | Matt Forte of interest to Pats?

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 11:21:43 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte could be pursued by the New England Patriots this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots may lose both LeGarrette Blount and Steven Jackson in free agency this year. New England loves pass-catching running backs, but they've already got a couple in Dion Lewis and James White. Of course, Forte is at another level than Lewis and White, so the Patriots could still be interested. Forte will probably be a RB1 wherever he is, but there aren't many better places for his fantasy value than New England.

Jets | Matt Forte an option for New York?

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 11:10:02 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte wouldn't be ruled out as an option for the New York Jets to sign if he becomes available, in the opinion of ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, as Cimini also said, there would be a lot of variables for the Jets to pursue and sign Forte, the first likely being that Chris Ivory isn't re-signed. As it stands, the Jets do have three impending free-agent running backs in Ivory, Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley. Much needs to happen in order for Forte to land in New York, though.

Bears | No contract talks for Matt Forte

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 07:04:27 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte hasn't had any meaningful contract talks with the team as of a couple of weeks ago.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has shown signs of age at 30 years old, but he's still a valuable back in PPR leagues. If he can latch on with a team with at least a timeshare role, he'll be a low-end RB2 in fantasy at minimum.

Bears | Matt Forte totals 110 yards, TD

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 19:51:39 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte posted 17 rushes for 76 yards in the Week 17 game against the Detroit Lions, and he added three receptions for 34 yards a touchdown in what could have been his final season with the team.

Fantasy Tip: The Bears could still use Forte, pairing him with Jeremy Langford for an impressive one-two punch. However, Chicago would have to get Forte back at a nice price, and Forte might be able to get more money elsewhere. It will be an interesting situation to watch, as Langford could go from mid-round draft pick to early-round fantasy option if Forte does not return. Ka'Deem Carey's fantasy situation could improve dramatically if Forte goes elsewhere, too.

Bears | Matt Forte to face Detroit

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 09:13:23 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (back) is active for Week 17's game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Forte ($5,600, 11.2% of cap), who is set to become a free agent after the season, could be playing his final game in a Bears uniform. He should play a key component in the passing game this week and is worthy of consideration as a midrange flex option in FantasyScore.

Bears | Matt Forte questionable for Week 17

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 12:37:15 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (back) was limited in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as questionable for the Week 17 game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Forte ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has competition in the backfield, which has the potential to limit his upside for a big showing. He is active enough in the passing game to provide a nice fantasy floor, though. View Forte as a viable option at FantasyScore for Week 17, especially at his mid-range cap hit.

Bears | Matt Forte limited in practice

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:18:51 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (back) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Forte ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has been pretty productive when he's been on the field this year in point-per-reception leagues like FantasyScore. He has double-digit carries in all but one of his starts and should see a healthy workload against the Detroit Lions in what could easily be his last game in a Bears uniform. He's an under-the-radar daily play that could pay off.

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 10:58:22 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (back) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Forte ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) should be good to go against the Detroit Lions. He has some upside on FantasyScore with Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) out.
