D. Clark had 5 catches for 40 yards but left the game with a knee injury. Greg Olsen didn't put up a stat yesterday after a lot of fantasy sites were picking him to have a great day.

If Clark is out for any amount of time, I assume it will help Olsen's value.

Anyone have any idea why Olsen wasn't used yesterday?

One word...Forte. Why risk passes when you're running so well?

I have Orton too, and started him with confidence. Of course posting a nada has not been unique with me a TE's. I'm a curse to them. FYI, I'm starting Boss this week, so bench him immediately.

I haven't seen anything in the local Chicago papers on why Olsen didn't get more looks. Nobody mentioned injury or any other problem. TEs are a crap shoot unless you have Gonzalez, Gates or, maybe, Witten. Boss has been getting looks [and TDs] from Ely so he isn't a bad play.
Go Bears!

From what I have seen this year if you want an rb from the bears go Forte, and if you want a wr or te for the bears go with Forte. :-b
