Bears RB Jones worth taking late in fantasy drafts

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that RB Matt Forte continues to sit out of this week’s OTAs due to an injured hamstring. Kevin Jones is running with the first-team offense in Forte’s absence.

Jones, who was once a viable fantasy starter during his time with the Lions, is now one full season removed from reconstructive knee surgery.

While Forte’s ailment isn’t considered serious, he’s too valuable of a runner not to handcuff in larger leagues.

If you draft Forte in the first round and fail to add backfield depth behind him, it’s a good idea to take Jones in the late rounds.
