Miami Herald - [Full Article]

Bears RB Matt Forte has shown no signs of slowing, even though he's third in the NFL in touches since 2008 with 1,892 (1,551 carries, 341 receptions). His burst is still there.

At a position notorious for grinding up players and spitting them out in short order, Forte is still a main cog in an offense that now features big-time options in the passing game. He's meticulous in preparation and works routinely with a physical therapist to keep his body tuned to avoid injuries.

"Playing this long, you know what the routine is," Forte said. "You know what to do and how to do it."

Fantasy Impact: 

Forte is a top RB this year in any format and is going as early as the middle of the first round. He's especially a top PPR RB hauling in 74 catches last season. We predict him for 72 more this season and he's our number-two PPR RB.
