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.
