Matt Forte Fantasy Projection: Despite Struggles, Forte Still A Top Fantasy RB

November was a rough month for Chicago Bears' RB Matt Forte. He opened the month with a monster performance vs. the Philadelphia Eagles, but in his next three games he rushed for 64, 57 and 59 yards and only scored one touchdown. With starting quarterback Jay Cutler out for the foreseeable future, defenses are likely to load the box against Forte in an attempt to force Caleb Hanie to make plays to move the Bears offense.

That said, numberFire.com likes Forte's chances to have a bounce back game of sorts vs. the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. They have him projected for 97 total yards, which would be his highest since Week 9, when he had 150 total yards vs. the Eagles. Despite his recent middling output, Forte remains a very solid fantasy play.
