Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
All signs are pointing to him returning to the lineup this week. Langford had made a play for a piece of the playing time, and the Bears are up against a Packers defense that just shut down Peterson. Depending on other options, it may be worth waiting another week but if he's playing, we think you really have to play him as the Bears will find a way to get him involved.
Rushing: 54 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 33 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
If there's one person in Chicago sad to see Marc Trestman gone, it's Forte. He caught 176 passes the last two years in Trestman's offense. Forte did manage only 3.9 yards per carry behind Chicago's porous offensive line, his lowest average since 2009. Forte dominates touches. He was on the field for 92 percent of Chicago's offensive snaps last season. Forte turns 30 this year and he's coming off his second straight season with more than 360 touches. While his age, workload and likely decline in receptions are concerns, Forte projects as a top fantasy back once again in 2015.

Rushing: 1175 Yards, 7 TD.
Receiving: 65 Receptions, 500 Yards, 2 TD.

Chicago Bears Team Talk
Omiyale, Adams cut.
I don't know if anyone reads this sub forum anymore. Last post was in December. 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.
Offensive Line Troubles
Cutler: "Uh, you know..."
I would be remiss if I didn't point out the fact that Jay's stall habit of saying "uh, you know..." approximately 68 times per post practice interview is a bit ...
Briggs wants trade?
Notes from camp
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 ...
