2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Despite a significant drop in running game numbers across the board, Forteís No.4 overall running back finish was buoyed by a ridiculous 102 catches for 808 yards and 4 touchdowns - receiving numbers that would make any slot receiver in the league blush with pride. In PPR leagues he was a god, and was pretty darn excellent in standard and touchdown heavy leagues as well. But while there were several factors in his favor going into last season, there may be just as many factors against him going into 2015.

The biggest hit to Forteís numbers will be the change in offensive system. With Trestman at the helm, Chicago targeted their running backs fifth-most in the league. Denver, guided by Adam Gase came in at 23rd. Before Trestmanís arrival in Chicago, Forte was still a dual threat, but had never surpassed the 64 catches he had as a rookie. Look for his reception total to fall somewhere in the 55-65 range. Was it an aberration or age-related decline that lead to Forteís disappointing 3.9 yards-per-carry average? While more of a vision and balance guided runner, Forte should age well as he enters his eighth NFL season. He enters the final year of his contract, and baring pre-season extension, could very well be playing his final season for the Bears. One thing is for certain, the Bears will continue to rely on Forte to anchor their run game, and as a true three-down workhorse, has plenty of payoff as an RB1, even if he winds up in the 6-10 overall range.

Forte: "Catching 100 balls is not my goal"
Bears' planning on running the ball more
By: John Canario | Fri Jul 31, 6:00 pm

Chicgao Bears
Matt Forte set an NFL record with 102 catches from the running back position last season. The Chicago Bears' tailback doesn't plan on duplicating that performance in 2015. "Catching 100 balls is not my goal as a running back," Forte said Thursday, per the Chicago Tribune. Under new coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase, the Bears plan to run a more balanced attack than the previous administration. "If you're running the ball and you can run it effectively you get to control the clock and keep other offenses off the field," Forte said. "Which is what we want to do. If we can control the game, control the pace of the game, and grind out tough yards and score, then that's what we're going to do." (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: A more balanced offensive attack would be a hit to Forte's fantasy totals in PPR leagues. While his rushing totals should see a boost, his receiving yards and points for receptions will see a healthy reduction.
