News: Forte had 21 yards on 12 carries and 15 yards on five receptions on eight targets in Sunday's 28-20 win over the 49ers. Impact: Not only did the Bears play from behind for most of the night, but they only ran 52 offensive plays. Forte's poor performance in a tricky matchup isn't especially concerning, as he was the only Chicago running back to record a touch, after taking 17 of the 18 carries last week. He's playing nearly every snap, and will likely continue to do so in games that are close. On a less positive note, the Bears' next opponent, the Jets, seem to be far better at defending the run than they are at defending the pass. That's true both in terms of early-season results and personnel.(RotoWire, )

News: Forte had 17 carries for 82 rushing yards and eight catches on nine targets for 87 receiving yards Sunday against the Bills. Impact: Forte led the Bears in rushing and receiving yards Sunday, although he had to watch tight end Martellus Bennett and wide receiver Brandon Marshall grab the two touchdowns. Backup running back Ka'Deem Carey had only one carry for four yards, showing once again that Forte remains the clear workhorse back in Chicago.(RotoWire, )
