Fantasy Outlook
For several years, Forte has been considered a solid upper tier RB1 with little risk for fantasy purposes. However, at 29 years of age and coming off a season in which he averaged just 3.9 yards per carry, there is some concern that he will see a decline in his production in 2015. The Bears seem to agree since they have yet to sign him to a contract extension as he enters the final year of his contract. Not helping Forte’s prognosis is the departure of head coach Marc Trestman, who funneled Forte the ball in the passing game as he set an NFL record for running backs with 102 receptions. It was his usage as a receiver that allowed him to finish as the 4th ranked fantasy running back with 1,846 total yards and 10 touchdowns. On the plus side, the Bears have little depth at running back, almost guaranteeing that Forte will approach his career average of 21.1 touches per game. And it is that heavy workload that should allow Forte to remain a mid-tier RB1 in 2015 barring injury, not a major concern for a player that has missed just four games during his seven year career.
