Jay Cutler and Matt Forte had be a little worried, until …
Is Bears RB Matt Forte a good start against the Lions? NFL.com fantasy editor Michael Fabiano admits that he has some sort of Pavlovian response when his players face the Lions. But that might have made sense in the past. Add in new coordinator Mike Martz and Forte looks like an excellent start.

Texans RB Arian Foster will be benched for the entire season!
At least that is the snap judgement in this edition of Overreaction Theater.
The Bears offense is like the sun. Use precaution, and you could get a nice warming glow. Move haphazardly, and you will end up burned.

Keeper deadlines are approaching so we kick around some basic keeper strategies. Write this down and remember it: keep the good players, dump the bad ones. So what does that mean for Matt Forte?

If Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is on the board in the second half of the first round in fantasy drafts, there’s no reason not to take him.
