Bears RB Matt Forte fine for Week 5

At this time last week, we had no idea if Bears running back Matt Forte @MattForte22 would play in his upcoming game. He did end up being active Monday and gave us a scare after limping off the field following his first carry. But Forte returned after getting his sprained ankle retaped and was able to handle the pigskin 14 times for 49 yards. More importantly, he didn't suffer any further setbacks with his ankle, and it showed this week. Forte practiced fully a couple of days this week and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jagaurs.

Fantasy Analysis:

This is a game that, if the same Bears team that played Monday shows up this weekend, Chicago should dominate from start to finish. That will mean a bunch of clock-killing carries for Forte. Jacksonville has allowed the third-most fantasy points to RBs, and Forte is a very strong RB2 this week. He'd be in the RB1 range if Michael Bush wasn't around to take over at the goal line.
