Week 2: Matt Forte or Leon Washington?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 18th, 2010 | Comment »

Question: Start/Sit question? Forte or Leon Washington?

Should I sit Matt Forte against Pittsburgh for Leon Washington who is facing New England?

I’m worried about Jay Cutler’s impact on Matt Forte’s stats and obviously the Steeler’s defense. I think Leon Washington could be huge this season, plus the Pats “revamped” defense (which just lost Richard Seymour and Jerod Mayo) already gave up a big fantasy game to Buffalo’s Fred Jackson. Am I getting “too cute” here?

Answer:

Leon Washington is good and I like him too this year. But like you said, don’t get too cute. You probably got Matt Forte as your stud RB. Play him no matter what.

My concern with the Bears this year is that they’re getting away from what they should be. They’re a running team. Forte should be getting his carries. During the Sunday night game, it seemed like the Beers felt like since they got Cutler, they had to run the Broncos offense from last year. Denver ran that offense because they had strong WR’s. The Bears strength is their running game.
