CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora is reporting that Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte 's injured ankle "does not appear to be severe enough to threaten him long-term." Forte is likely questionable for the Bears' Week 13 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Michael Bush is in line to see a significant increase in playing time should Forte be unable to play. Bush rushed for 60 yards and two TDs last week.
Bush is an adequate replacement for Matt Forte for our fantasy purposes. The Bears will also be without Devin Hester because of a concussion. Bush is a must-own player across all league formats. He may not be a bonafied RB2, but given Chicago's commitment to the run, Bush is a viable flex on most teams. There is a bunch of turnover going on at the running back position right now so trust the systems/offenses to produce rather than attempt to distinguish which back has more individual talent.
