Fantasy Football: Matt Forte is a low-upside option in Week 12

The Bears running back cannot be expected to have a big week against Minnesota.

Wesley Hitt

During his career, Matt Forte has never had much success against the Minnesota Vikings. The Bears running back has averaged just 71.6 rushing yards per game against Minnesota in seven games. He has also scored just one touchdown.

Furthermore, Fortre is coming off his worst two-game stretch of the season. In Week 10, he had 39 yards against Houston, which he followed up with 63 yards against San Francisco.

The Vikings rush defense isn't what it once was, but they still have their moments. In their last game against Detroit, the Lions had just 60 yards on the ground. Overall, Minnesota is allowing 111.6 rushing yards per game.

If Jay Cutler cannot play, the Vikings will likely focus more on stopping the Bears running game.

In his last game against Minnesota, Forte had 87 yards on the ground, and a similar performance can be expected in Week 12. Because of that, he has limited upside against Minnesota.
