Bears RB Matt Forte (back, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 17. Forte was dealing with a bad back late in Week 16. Jeremy Langford is shaping up as a Sneaky Start with Forte ailing. If Forte is inactive, Langford would turn into a great start. The Bears play early on Sunday.

Scouting Report

Week 17 vs. Detroit

Everyone is worried about Jeremy Langford taking points away from Matt Forte, but last week it was KaDeem Carey who stepped in and vultured two touchdowns from the Bears back. Overall, it wasn't a terrible outing for Forte as he finished with 77 yards.

This week he faces a Lions defense he had 89 yards and a touchdown against earlier in the season. Although in the first matchup, Forte had a much larger role for Chicago and wasn't splitting time with Langford. We'll look at Forte more of an RB2 option in a tough matchup this week.
