Bears RB Matt Forté has disappointed fantasy owners in the past, but he is worth a start in all formats against the Bills. Buffalo is ranked last in the league vs. the run, allowing an eye-popping 188.7 rushing yards per game. No team has rushed for less than 140 yards against the Bills this season. Offensive coordinator Mike Martz hasn't embraced the ground game this season, but he would be foolish not to in this game.

Another Bears player who has probably let some fantasy owners down — TE Greg Olsen — is also worth considering for a start in deep leagues against Buffalo. The Bills have allowed tight ends to score seven touchdowns in the five games they have played since Week Three, including two-TD days for Dustin Keller, Marcedes Lewis and Todd Heap. Owners have reason to be concerned about gambling on Olsen, who has made just three catches in the past three games, including two games without a catch, but it could be worth it if they don't have an option that's clearly better this week.
