Bears declare Michael Bush is their goal-line RB

This is going to irk Matt Forte @MattForte22's fantasy owners, but here it is: Bears head coach Marc Trestman said Monday that "we've kind of isolated and declared Michael (Bush) our goal-line running back."

Fantasy Analysis:

Literally. Bush will be used on the goal line, much like he was on Sunday night when it took him not one, not two, but three tries to score from the 1-yard line. Overall, Bush ended the game with nine yards on eight carries and that score. Forte still scored on a run from the 5, so he's going to get the ball deep in opponent's territory, just not 99 yards deep. Forte remains a near-elite RB1. Bush is a handcuff only.
