Matt Forte Fantasy Projection: Forte Projected As No. 4 Back In Week 12

With Jay Cutler out indefinitely, the Bears' offense will take on a new look in Week 12 in beyond. With the unproven Caleb Hanie taking over for Cutler, the Bears figure to lean heavily on star RB Matt Forte, and in Week 12, numberFire.com projects Forte as the No. 4 overall running back for the week.

Though teams will certainly be looking to stop Chicago's running game, Forte should get a lot of touches regardless, and that's what fantasy owners are looking for. Forte has averaged only 60.5 yards rushing in the past two games, but with Cutler out he also figures to be used heavily in the red zone, which could sustain him from a fantasy prospective even if teams suppress his yardage totals by stacking the box.
