Matt Forte goes for 76 total yards
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:06 am ET) Bears running back Matt Forte was held to 33 rushing yards on 13 carries in the win over the Jets, but he played well in the passing game. Forte caught six of seven targets for 43 yards and is up to 19 receptions through three games.

Forte is averaging 3.2 yards per carry entering Week 4 against the Packers.

Matt Forte held to 36 yards
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/14) Bears running back Matt Forte couldn't get going Sunday night at San Francisco, totaling 36 yards on 17 touches from scrimmage. Forte ran eight times for 8 yards in the first half and finished with 12 carries for 21 yards.

He added five catches for 15 yards. On the plus side, Forte tied for the team lead with eight targets.

Forte visits the Jets on Monday Night Football in Week 3.

Matt Forte totals 169 yards vs. Bills in Week 1
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/7/14) Bears running back Matt Forte proved to be a dual threat Sunday, rushing for 82 yards on 17 attempts and racking up a team-high 87 receiving yards on eight catches in Chicago's 23-20 overtime loss to the Bills.

Forte did a nice job racking up his yardage in chunks, with nine of his plays going for at least nine yards in the game, but he didn't see any looks in the red zone as the offense focused on attacking through the air. Forte surpassed his 169-yard total just twice last season. He'll likely find a harder test ahead in Week 2 when he faces the 49ers.

Matt Forte should live up to billing in Week 1
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/2/14) Bears running back Matt Forte was ranked as a top five Fantasy running back going into the season, and he falls in the top five in both weekly running back rankings from CBSSports.com experts. After setting career highs in rushing yardage, rushing touchdowns, receptions and receiving yardage in 2013, will Forte get this season started off on the right foot in Week 1 against the Bills?

While Buffalo put together a strong defense last season, the team's particular strength was against the pass. Rushers were able to gain 4.4 yards per carry against the Bills, leaving them 23rd in the league in the category. While the Bills did a good job defending against pass-catching backs last season, they now have to play without linebackers Kiko Alonso (season-ending injury) and Nigel Bradham (suspended for Week 1) as well as safety Jairus Byrd (signed with New Orleans).

New defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's defense was just average defending passes against running backs in Detroit last season. Forte has been excellent against Schwartz, who was the head coach of the Lions from 2009 through 2013. He has rushed for 1,005 yards and averaged 4.74 yards per carry while catching 38 passes for 360 yards in 12 career games against the Lions. Ten of those contests came with Schwartz at the helm, and Forte should be able to continue giving the Bills defensive coordinator nightmares this Sunday.

Matt Forte not asked to do much in third exhibition game
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/14) Bears running back Matt Forte was not asked to do much during Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks. Forte was limited to two series with the first unit. He took his first handoff for a gain of 11 yards and finished the game with 17 yards on three carries.

The 28-year-old led the league in touches last year and doesn't need to prove anything during the preseason. He ranked third with 289 carries, and his 74 receptions also ranked third among running backs in 2013.
