Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the RB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
He no longer can be considered the top option at the position, but he is still a fantasy starter as the Bears have little else to rely on for offensive output. Brutal matchup and now there has been a change at quarterback.
The pairing of Forte and new head coach Marc Trestman's offense was a match made in fantasy heaven last season. Forte had his most productive season to date posting career highs in rushing and receiving yards as well as receptions. He also tied his season-best for touchdowns (12) amassed as a rookie back in 2008. There is no reason to believe there will be a drop off this season as Forte is the lead back with little to no competition for touches. Forte owner's may want to consider handcuffing Forte with rookie Ka'Deem Carey. A slow 40 time at the Combine caused Carey to drop in the draft but he has the skills to flourish in Trestman's offense.

But this isn't really fantasy relevant news, except I guess it cuts the Bears' false starts in half. At least. So that's nice.
Starting oline: Omiyale-Williams-Garza-Louis-Webb. Tice said Edwin Williams would have played C for the first team but he's not available until next Thursday.
Carimi is rolling with the 2nd team. That's pretty normal under Lovie--nobody is handed ...
