  Bears | 12 players let go    Sat Aug 31, 09:24 PM

The Chicago Bears have released RB Armando Allen, OG Derek Dennis, LB J.T. Thomas, WR Terrence Toliver, OT Cory Brandon, DT Corvey Irvin, DT Christian Tupou, LS Brandon Hartson, CB Demontre Hurst, TE Fendi Onobun, RB Harvey Unga and DE Aston Whiteside.

Footballguys view: Allen and Unga lose out on a backup RB role with the Bears. Fantasy owners need to remember the name Michael Ford as he's now the RB3 in Chicago behind Matt Forte and Michael Bush. The rookie from LSU is a talented runner who loves to punish defenders.

  Bears | Michael Ford shines in preseason game    Fri Aug 16, 12:29 PM

Chicago Bears RB Michael Ford could provide some competition for WR Devin Hester as the team's return man after breaking three tackle on a 100-yard kickoff return. Ford could also make the team as the third running back with RB Armando Allen (hamstring) dealing with a hamstring issue.

Footballguys view: Ford is another LSU RB to monitor in deep dynasty leagues. We like Spencer Ware (Seahawks) as well and see both as natural runners with vision, balance, and burst. At LSU Ware and Ford were part of a RBBC and split time with Jeremy Hill (Fr.) and Kenny Hilliard (So.).
