So you are looking like a contender in your league and you are getting ready for a playoff run, but somehow you got there in spite of Matt Forte. So you come here to the friendly Razzball confines to see what your next move should be. Well, take a look at Mr. Forte’s opponents for weeks 14, 15, and 16 and you aren’t going to be happy. And how has Forte done against highly ranked rush defenses? Yeah, I’m not sure he’s showed up either. Now take a look at Jamaal Charles’ matchups. Detroit and Cleveland at home weeks 14 and 15? Will LJ be back? Maybe. Will Kolby Smith be taking some carries? Maybe. But if you can do a multi-player deal giving Forte for Charles and another piece it might be worth it. A lot depends on where you are. If you are almost locked into your playoffs you can start maneuvering for playoff matchups. Hopefully this chart will give you a way to plan ahead. Some playoff schedules are just weeks 15/16, but I’ve seen longer playoff schedules so I added week 14. Make sure you check out your league settings.
Of course the higher the number the worse the defense(s).
