How I Acquired LeSean McCoy & Matt Forte

In my $300 buy in fantasy football league, I drafted last in a 12 man league. I went with a strategy that clearly backfired. I drafted A.J. Green and Brandon Marshall with back to back picks. Not only have the both of them dealt with injuries early on in the NFL season, but it really left me with a WEAK group of running backs. Luckily, Ahmad Bradshaw has been scoring touchdowns...

Is Matt Forte the Best PPR Running Back in Fantasy Football?

Six exciting weeks into the NFL season, there has already been quite a shuffle towards the labeling of the word “best” at several positions. Many of last year’s reigning leaders, Peyton Manning and his Week 4 bye aside, are off-pace from their 2013 outputs. This is paving the way for new challengers to fight for the honor of being labeled the NFL’s “best” in any category…...

Bears' offense taking Matt Forte places he’s never been

When Marc Trestman was hired as the Bears' coach, the most significant individual impact was expected to register on Jay Cutler. The improved play at the Bears quarterback position was evident in the play of both Cutler and Josh McCown. But arguably the single biggest impact of Trestman has been felt at running back, where Matt Forte has gone from a solid running back to arguably...

You'll Never Guess Who is Leading the NFL in Receptions So Far This Season (hint--he plays for the Chicago Bears)

Matt Forte is a beat. He is without a doubt on of the best running backs in the NFL today; something he proved once again on Sunday with a stellar performance against the Atlanta Falcons (157 all purpose yards and two touchdowns). That comes as no surprise to those that know and love the Bears running back (talking to you fantasy owners).What may surprise fans is that he actually...

Bears Put Together Complete Victory

This past Sunday the Chicago Bears shocked quite a few people, including myself, when they took down the Atlanta Falcons 27-13 on the road. The best part of this game was seeing both sides of the ball play well. This is a good sign for what the Bears are capable of doing the rest of the season. The offense, lead by the “good Jay Cutler,” racked up a total of 478 yards. Before...

Grading the Chicago Bears’ offense, defense & special teams vs. Atlanta

Call it what you will but the Chicago Bears week six win could end up being a season saver. For the first time all season, the Bears played a complete game for all four quarters and dominated each facet of their 27-13 win. The defense gave up 13 points, which happens to be the lowest it has been in the Trestman/Tucker era. On top of it all, the team was missing four starters on defense...

Chicago Bears: Young and Forte have shined this year

Through the first six games of the year, the Chicago Bears currently are third in the division behind the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers. The Bears are only one game behind the division lead which is not too bad considering that they have had two disappointing losses in which they gave up the lead.

Chicago Bears; recipe in beating Atlanta

The Chicago Bears maybe aren’t as good offensively as we thought they could be. In fact, statistically the Bears rank just about as good on defense as they do on offense. Not what you would expect with the set of receivers and Matt Forte in the backfield. As of today, the Bears rank 17th in total offense and defense.

Another week led to another letdown and it is time for someone to take the fall for the weekly disappointment that the 2014 Chicago Bears season has become.
