Forte or Torain as 2nd RB - non-PPR

Deciding between Ryan Torain vs GB or Matt Forte vs. Car. Leaning towards Torain b/c don't like Chi's O-line and Forte hasn't been very productive so far. and b/c Cutler's out, worried Car will put more emphasis on stopping the run. Thoughts? thanks.

I'm in the same situation and after a lot of consideration, I'm going with Torain. I think GB will have trouble defending the run so Torain should have some room. But Car has a great run defense plus they defend passes to the RB real well too so it seems like Forte would have a tougher day than Torain.

GB's been pretty tough against the run this year, actually (partly because Chicago and Forte sucked against them).

And. Never. Trust. Shanahan.

I told you: ANTS

Actually, Torain got a reasonable amount of work, but I would seriously not have been surprised if Keiland Williams had ended up with half the carries.
