News and Analysis
Forte gained 78 yards on 16 carries, while adding 21 yards on two receptions, in Monday's 31-15 loss to the Saints.

Impact: Both Jay Cutler and the Chicago offensive line failed to show up, but Forte was still trying to barrel through tacklers in the fourth quarter of a blowout. While his effort was impressive, Forte was largely held back by the incompetence around him, which has increasingly become an issue over the past three weeks. A Week 16 matchup with the Lions isn't encouraging, as he managed just six yards on five carries when the division rivals met on Thanksgiving. Of course, his contributions as a receiver still make him a must-start in nearly any format, even if expectations for the Chicago running game are low.
