Owners shouldn't count on a second-consecutive huge rushing day from him, but Bears RB Matt Forté is worth a start in fantasy leagues again this week.
The Bears will face Seattle's second-ranked run defense, which is allowing just 72.8 yards per game, and offensive coordinator Mike Martz could go back to throwing the ball more often with Jay Cutler back under center after sitting out last week with a concussion.
If Seattle counters by using its nickel and dime packages in an effort to limit Cutler's options through the air, Forté could have an easier time finding holes than he did in the first four weeks of the season, when he was held to 50 yards rushing or less in every game.
Forté is a frequent target in the passing game, though (20 targets, 18 catches for 231 yards) so all hope will not be lost if the ground game isn't clicking or being utilized as much as it was vs. the Panthers, who allowed Forté to break free for 166 yards on the ground and two rushing touchdowns.
