Fantasy football: Michael Bush, Matt Forte each strong plays vs. Jags

The Jaguars have allowed at least 120 yards rushing in each of the first four weeks of the season.

US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The fewest rushing yards allowed by the Jacksonville Jaguars so far during the 2012 season has been 123 yards. In that game, they allowed Vikings running back Adrian Peterson to rush for 84 yards and two touchdowns on just 17 carries in his first game since returning from an ACL tear in the 2011 season.

In the following week the Jaguars gave up a combined 184 yards rushing and three touchdowns to the combo of Arian Foster and Ben Tate. Simply put, they haven't been able to stop anyone and despite injury concerns still lingering with Matt Forte, he is still a good play in fantasy for Week 5.

The Bears haven't been able to have a breakout game yet through four weeks, but haven't had any less than 90 yards rushing either. Against a poor Jaguars run defense, the Bears might finally be able to have a break out game, making both Matt Forte and Michael Bush strong plays.
