Fantasylive.com reports Matt Forte has been stripped of goal-line duties, here’s what the site had to say:
News: Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte is no longer the goal-line back, as offensive coordinator Mike Martz said Chester Taylor will now handle the duties.
Analysis: Forte has three rushing TDs and only one has been inside the 5-yard-line, but still, he sees a slight drop in fantasy appeal as a result.
My Thoughts: I think this is a great move, Forte has struggled all season at the goal-line, Chester Taylor is a solid change of pace back, who can sneak past defenders with his blazing speed. Great decision by Bears coaches, it will make this team much better in the red-zone. The red-zone is an important area for any teams, especially the Bears who have struggled there all season long. Look for Chester Taylor to improve their red-zone chances.
