Bears RB Matt Forté gained a season-best 8.4 yards per carry last week against the Eagles, and he should have another productive game against the Lions in Week 13. Forté has gained at least 124 yards from scrimmage in each of his last four games vs. Detroit, which has allowed at least 109 yards rushing in each of its past four games this season. Only two teams have allowed more rushing touchdowns than the Lions (13).

Forté has 14 carries or more in each of the past four games after having 12 carries or less in five of the first seven games of the season, so the Bears have been featuring him more of late. He should start in all formats.

TE Greg Olsen could be worth considering for a start in deep leagues. He's going to pose matchup problems for Detroit, and QB Jay Cutler has been looking for him in the red zone — Olsen, who has five TDs total, has scored three TDs in his last four games. He has made only 11 catches in that span, but his TD potential makes him an intriguing option.
