Fantasy Fallout, Week 1: Bears/Colts

Bears 29 @ Colts 13
The Bears surprised the Colts with an effective running game and good defense…Rookie Matt Forte (26 touches, 141 yards, 1 TD) had a terrific debut and flashed breakaway speed that many didn’t think he had. Chicago will face better rush defenses than the Colts, but Forte still looks like the real deal…Unsurprisingly, the Bears’ tight ends, Desmond Clark (2-46) and Greg Olsen (2-36), led the team in receiving…Devin Hester’s debut as a full-time wideout (1-7) was disappointing…Peyton Manning (257 passing yards, 1 TD) finished with pretty good numbers, but he was inaccurate early, and that got the Colts in a hole…Marvin Harrison was solid (8-76) in his return, and after a slow start, Reggie Wayne had a big game (10-86-1)…Dallas Clark (1-8) left the game with an injury and did not return…Anthony Gonzalez was very involved, catching five passes for 48 yards…Joseph Addai (13 touches, 47 yards) was bottled up all game, and had to leave in the second half with a head injury.
