Bears RB Matt Forté is coming off one of his worst rushing days of the season (9-25-0), and his struggles could continue this week against Minnesota's 10th-ranked run defense. The Vikings are allowing 3.9 yards per carry and they held Forté to 69 yards rushing on 21 carries in Week 10. Chicago has also been turning to RB Chester Taylor in goal-line situations, which further diminishes Forté's value. Owners might want to consider other options at running back.

TE Greg Olsen's production has been next to nonexistent of late. He has only one catch in each of his past three games and none of the three grabs has resulted in a gain of more than nine yards. He's still a threat to score a TD every week, and QB Jay Cutler did target him six times against the Vikings in Week 10, so Olsen could be a larger part of the game plan this week. Olsen is worth considering for a start if an owner doesn't have a more reliable producer at tight end.
