Fantasy football: With Matt Forte dinged up, Michael Bush could be strong start

Jonathan Daniel

With Matt Forte battling an ankle injury, Michael Bush could be a strong start in fantasy football in Week 13.

Fantasy football owners looking for surprise points this weekend might want to turn to Chicago Bears running back Michael Bush -- who could see increased playing time with Matt Forte battling injury.

Bush had 21 carries in Chicago's Week 12 win over the Minnesota Vikings, totaling just 20 yards. Bush, however, treated fantasy owners (and the Bears) to two touchdowns in the 28-10 victory.

Chicago will take on the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13 -- the same Seahawks who rank No. 3 in the NFL against the pass. Pete Carroll's defense surrenders just 200.7 yards per game passing. Seattle's run defense is ranked No. 12 n the league, as the Seahawks surrender 108.6 yards per game on the ground.

Forte is nursing an ankle injury that could limit the talented running back even if he does play in Week 13. Forte injured his ankle during the third quarter of Chicago's win over the Vikings.
