Start looking for a brief Matt Forte replacement in fantasy football.
The Bears believe running back Matt Forte suffered a high ankle sprain Thursday night vs. Green Bay, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 14, 2012
This is quite a set of unfortunate circumstances for the Chicago Bears running back. So, just as we saw against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Michael Bush is the obvious No. 1 ball-carrier.
Therefore, those with Forte in fantasy certainly need to find a filler as the 2012 season progresses. That said, let's take a look at some running backs worth having as backups to call on when needed.
After all, depth does pay nice dividends in the short and long run.
Please note that the size and format varies between fantasy leagues. So, any player available in one league may not be available in another.
