Matt Forte carried the ball just five times for six yards and caught six passes on nine targets for 52 yards during Thursday's loss to the Lions.
The Bears completely abandoned the ground game right from the start, so Forte's fantasy owners were left hoping for a billion screen passes. They got nine which Forte hauled in six, but overall, this day was a huge bust. It helps that Forte is such a strong pass-catcher, but no running back is going to find success when they team opts to run the ball just seven times all game. Look for a major bounce-back next week against Dallas.
