2012 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-inLast updated on Aug-26-2012 by Jeb Gorham
Forte was held out of the pre-seasn game against Denver and Bush started. He did not perform well. Watch how he progresses through pre-season before grabbing him as a back-up RB in your draft. My guess is that he will turn things around quickly.
Michael Bush makes the move from Oakland to Chicago this season. What a great move by Chicago. With Forte now signed, he becomes the definite number one back, but Bush is a solid back-up whose speed and power will likely get short yardage and goal line looks. Something tells me that Bush will receive an active dose in the rushing attack allowing Forte more rest. I cannot yet put my finger on Bush's fantasy value or give you some numbers, but conisder him to be a decent flex play given the match-up and maybe a conistent play if he receives a greater role. Either way, I see a combination of Forte and Bush as a positive for the Chicago offense.
The Chicago offensive coaches are touting two 1,000 yard running backs this season. This is huge for Bush and solidifies him on my radar. I think Bush will vulture the goal line touches and scores. He is on one of my fantasy rosters and might make two.

|9.01||FansFantasyFootball.com - Forte holding out and could be dealt (unlikely) but the longer the holdout the better this pick.|
2012 Experts Mock Draft (July)
July 16 - 27
|8.10||FansFantasyFootball.com - Seems like the one play away backups are going here, so I will join in the fun. Forte was a GL nightmare last year so I expect Bush to be used in that role in the very least.|
2012 Experts Mock Draft (August)
Aug 14 - 24
|9.09||FFToolbox.com (Matt) - I could use another back but the position is bone dry by the ninth round. Michael Bush is only a backup, but common sense tells me he'll vulture touchdowns away from Matt Forte who's never had a knack for scoring.|
