Matt Forte is Green?

Can anyone who made the Kubiak or readers please explain to me how a running back coming up on 28 that has missed 6 games in the last two years is a "Green" risk?

Or how Frank Gore is green? Sometimes this makes no sense to me.

I can't necessarily explain Forte, but with Gore, it's probably because his stats aren't projected to be super anyway. Keep in mind though, you can manually adjust the risk factors in the spreadsheet if you want it more applicable to your point of view. I've done that with some of the statistics for a few players I don't think KUBIAK quite nailed.
