1. Matt Forte

Forte probably should have made the Pro Bowl last year.  Despite finishing the season 3rd in total yards from scrimmage (1,846) and breaking the NFL record for receptions by a running back in a single season (102), he still found himself watching the Pro Bowl from his couch.  That having been said, I still think Matt Forte is the best player currently on the Chicago Bears roster.

With the Bears showing a strong commitment to the run in the season opener, I think Forte could post the best rushing numbers of his career this season.  Granted, the Packer’s defense might not be the best measuring stick for your offensive potency, but the Bears rushing attack looked downright effective against Green Bay.  Given that Matt is in a contract year and might not be back with the team next season, I fully expect the Bears to get their money’s worth out of him this year.
