DRAFT: Matt Forte, RB, Bears Forte was last season's breakout rookie, totaling 1,238 rushing yards, 477 receiving yards and 12 total touchdowns. And this year, with Jay Cutler in the fold, Forte should face fewer eight-man fronts. Granted, there is some growing concern in football circles that the former Tulane star is more a numbers guy than a legitimate force on the football field. They point to the fact that Forte averaged less than four yards a carry last season and only broke 100 yards three times in 16 games. Most surprising of all, there are apparently people who value actual football ability over the ability to post meaningful fantasy stats. Weird!
DRAFT: Greg Olsen, TE, Bears In Olsen's rookie year he had 39 receptions. Last year in his sophomore season he grabbed 54 balls. In 2007 he totaled 391 receiving yards; in 2008: 574. Olsen's touchdowns also rose from two to five from his first to second season. So expect Olsen's fantasy stats to continue to improve especially now that the Bears will throw more with Jay Cutler in the fold. Just be sure to honor Olsen's 7th Floor Crew roots when you announce your pick: "(Who's your pick?) / G-Reg / (What's he do?) / Plays tight end / (Why'd you do it?) / I feel he's going to have a breakout season and help me win the league with career highs in all major statistical categories." (The rap kind of breaks down at the end there. So if you prefer, feel free to sub in something about busting a nut on a pair of breasts or sticking your dick in someone's ear.)
