    Matt Forte or Joseph Addai? They have both had some good weeks and some bad weeks neither have showed that much promise they are good backs don't get me wrong but for fantasy football it'a tough decision. Let me know what all you fantasy guys and girls think.

    Yeah lets break it down. I think Indy will expose KC, so likely Indy should have a 4th quarter lead which suggests Addai gets a fair number of carries. But fantasy rewards TD's over yard so unless Manning hits Addai in the first 3 quarters, Addai might just have yards.
    Forte should also get a decent number of carries against Carolina. The Martz offense is as always more pass than run oriented but with Cutler's concussion you have to think a bit more goes thru Forte.
    So on Tuesday I'd vote Forte, although don't lock anything in till Sunday, watch the injuries reports

    Both have pretty friendly match ups this week. KC a bit better against the run imo. Cutler is supposed to play.. and RB gets tons of check downs/screens in martz o. Addai would be the safe bet, but Forte has a lot more potential to grab big gains imo.

    I have Forte and it's hit and miss with him, I think he's due for a good week considering the past couple have been garbage. Even if Cutler plays, which it looks like he's going to, they probably will take it easy and not have him throw the ball 40-50 times like they have been. As long as Taylor doesn't take away too many carries/receptions I think Forte will have a pretty decent week, I'm banking on him anyway, especially if Knowshon is going to miss another week.

    Thanks for the insight guys. Ive decided to go with Addai. He seems to be more reliable over the weeks then forte. I guess i will see at the end of the week haha. Thanks again guys...:)

    Yeah wow forgot about this thread. Forte was huge. Too bad for Cutler's head but good for fantasy owners
