Bears RB Matt Forte limited in practice again, questionable for Monday

Bears running back Matt Forte @MattForte22 was limited in practice for the fourth consecutive day on Saturday and is considered questionable to play Monday night against the Cowboys. Forte didn't play last week because of a sprained ankle.

Fantasy Analysis:

And that sprain might still be bothering him, but it looks like Forte will at least play Monday night. How effective will he be? How many carries will he get? That's up in the air, and it makes Forte a rather uncertain fantasy choice. If you are trying to figure out whether to start Forte over another RB who is also less than 100 percent (Mikel Leshoure, Willis McGahee, Fred Jackson, Reggie Bush), let me say that I would go with any of those other guys instead of Forte. Again, the fact that he plays in the final game of the week weighs heavily in that opinion. But I also expect Forte to lose a few more carries than normal to Michael Bush @michaelbush29, and the Cowboys' run defense did a good job of slowing down Doug Martin last week at home. If he plays, Forte is a high-end flex option in his first game back from the sprain.

I am struggling with my RB2 play this weekend... I started AP @ my RB1 and I am in a close matchup. I have Bradshaw, Andre Brown and Forte remaining... I am leaning towards gambling on one of the Giants RBs since Forte will likely be eased back in and split with Bush anyway. I just cannot determine which Giant to start. Any thoughts?

I have both Michael Bush and Matt Forte in a PPR league. If Forte is active, which one should I play? thanks
