RB Garrett Wolfe - Chicago Bears
|5-7, 170||Born: 8-17-1984||College: Northern Illinois||Drafted: Round 3, pick|
2010 Week 15 vs MIN (4 / 8 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Was used towards the end of the game to run the clock out. Looks as bad as Taylor when he is in there.
2009 Week 1 vs GB (3 / 15 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wolfe was a non-factor in Week 1, getting just a handful of carries. The important takeaways from this game are that Wolfe is the clear backup (Adrian N. Peterson had no touches) and that Matt Forte is the running game once again for the Bears. Wolfe's only fantasy value is as a handcuff to Forte and even then he may split time with the "other" Adrian Peterson if Forte should lose time to injury.
2009 Week 3 vs SEA (3 / 8 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wolfe had one series unto himself, rushing three times to open the fourth quarter. He did not do much with those chances, gaining nine yards on his first two attempts to setup up a third and short, but his next attempt was unable to convert for a first down. Wolfe saw no other work the rest of the game so his fantasy value is minimal at best.
2009 Week 4 vs DET (5 / 22 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Garrett Wolfe moved up the depth chart against Detroit in Week 4 after the early injury to Adrian N. Peterson. Wolfe closed out the game with the contest long decided, racking up most of his yardage during the point of the game that only a fantasy fanatic would love. Wolfe even found the end zone with Forte resting on the sideline in the fourth quarter. If Peterson's health remains a question, Wolfe becomes a strong handcuff to Matt Forte going forward.
2009 Week 6 vs ATL (3 / 15 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The speedster used his speed for a nice 1st down run in the 3rd quarter to help loosen up the stout front seven of the Falcons since they were keying on Forte up the middle so much. Wolfe ended up carrying the ball three times on the night gaining 15 yards. It remains to be seen if he is Forte's handcuff once Adrian Peterson returns from injury.
2009 Week 8 vs CLE (5 / 53 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wolfe rarely spelled Forte in the base offense, but got multiple carries in the game's final drive. He ripped off 51 yards on four carries in that drive against a worn down and disinterested Cleveland defense, including a 36 yarder to end the game.
2008 Week 3 vs TB (1 / 38 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Garrett Wolfe was involved in one of the most exciting plays of the game. He received a direct snap on a fake punt and earned 38 yards and a first down. That was his only action of the game.
2008 Week 5 vs DET (8 / 15 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Once the game was safely put away Wolfe began to see carries, and was not able to do much with the work he received. Barring an injury, Wolfe probably won't be a major part of the running game except in similar situations.
2008 Week 7 vs MIN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wolfe's first NFL touchdown came not on offense but on special teams. Wolfe picked up a blocked punt in the first quarter and returned it for 17 yards and the score. He did not have any carries or targets on offense.
2007 Week 4 vs DET (3 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The rookie from Northern Illinois carried three times in limited relief duty.
2007 Week 5 vs GB (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Wolfe had a two yard run that was nearly a catch, as the ball was thrown to him but it was a backwards pass.
2007 Week 13 vs NYG (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Though active for this game, Wolfe did not garner any carries or targets, as Adrian Peterson seemed to play all downs throughout the game not requiring a backup.
2007 Week 14 vs WAS (3 / 13 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 37 / 0 rec)
Wolfe had one carry for 11 yards in the third quarter. He got a few more carries in the fourth quarter as well. He caught four passes for 37 yards late in the game as the short and the speedy Wolfe was used quite a bit late in the game as the Bears were forced to pass the ball.
2007 Week 15 vs MIN (3 / 5 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec)
Wolfe entered the game periodically to spell Peterson, but he was given only three opportunities to carry the ball. He did not make much of an impact in the passing game, either, though he did show a little sizzle on one of his receptions.
