Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte carried 23 times for a season-high 122 yards and no touchdowns in the Week 4 game against the Green Bay, and he added 49 yards on five receptions. Forte went over 10,000 career total yards from scrimmage in the loss.
Huddle Up: It was a fantasy-friendly matchup for Forte and he delivered, though the Bears failed to show up in other areas of the lopsided loss to Green Bay. No worries about Forte going forward, in case his first three games had you poised over the panic button.

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte said he believes the team could have the top offense in the NFL this upcoming season. 'If we keep working hard we're going to take this offense, hopefully, to the top of the league,' Forte said. 'There's no ceiling. There's no limit that you can put on it.'
Huddle Up: Forte isn't exactly out on a limb as the Bears finished second in the league in scoring (445 points) and eighth in total yards (6,109) last season, and that was with Jay Cutler missing almost a third (5 starts) of the season.

Huddle Up: Forte continues to be fantasy gold as he notched his second-highest yards-from- scrimmage total of the season. With the Bears now possessing a plethora of pass- catching options to keep defenses from focusing on Forte, the RB certainly is taking advantage.

Huddle Up: The expectation all along is that Forte will play this week against the Vikings, and a little practice time towards the end of the week would go a long way towards easing fantasy owners' concerns. Michael Bush would be the backup plan if Forte can't go this week.
