ESPN's Mike Sando:
Eddie Royal's resurgence over the past two seasons and his early grasp of the Bears' new offense has him in great position to play a prominent role right away. The staff seemed excited about him when I visited Bears camp earlier in the offseason. Royal has 10 red zone touchdowns over the past two seasons, tied for ninth in the league among wide receivers.
Royal could continue to be a headache for fantasy owners. He's production tends to be spotty and comes in bunches, which makes it difficult to know when to use him. There's also the possibility that he draws targets away from Alshon Jeffery, Kevin White, Martellus Bennett and/or Matt Forte.

Matt Forte - Week 17 vs. Minnesota
Matt Forte isn't having a career year in rushing, but he's having one of the best receiving seasons by a back in NFL history. In fact, he's just eight receptions short of the NFL single-season record for receptions by a running back (101). He's also just 13 rushing yards shy of 1,000 and could join an exclusive club. If he gets 1,000 rushing yards and 100 catches he'll be the second player in NFL history (LaDainian Tomlinson is the first) to reach those milestones in a single season.
In short, Forte is a baller. He'll have a good chance at reaching those milestones this week against the Minnesota Vikings. The last time he played Minnesota he finished with 175 total yards. The Vikings have been very favorable to backs this season.
Forte is a must-start option.
