Summary

Forte exceeded every expectation possible last season, including his own. No matter what the situation, Forte continued to push on, and proved that he's still one of the most under-rated backs in the league. A repeat of last season seems unlikely, yet the table seems set for Forte to go it again. The threat that Michael Bush would steal goal line carries is now gone, and rookie Ka'Deem Carey certainly won't steal a ton of carries. The offense is a year older and a year more experienced under Marc Trestman. Everyone seems poised to take a step forward, including Forte. With no real competition behind him, if Forte stays healthy, he's going to have a great chance for a top five finish. (June 5)
