Matt Forte Fantasy Projection: Forte Projected As A Top Back In Week 11

Though Matt Forte is coming off of a relatively lackluster performance in Week 10, the Bears' star running back is an automatic start in Week 11 vs. the San Diego Chargers. Forte only ran for 64 yards in last week's victory over the Detroit Lions, but he augmented that middling rushing total with a crucial touchdown.

The Chargers rush defense is in the bottom half of the league this year, and numberFire.com projects Forte for 120 total yards on Sunday, which would be one of the top three performances in Week 11. If anything should give Forte owners any pause, it's that despite giving up over 120 yards per game on the ground this season, the Chargers have only allowed five rushing touchdowns all year. That alone, though, is not nearly enough to think about benching Forte.
