I like forte here, bowe is in a run heavy offense, and did most his damage last year in a few game spam in the middle of the season. Forte along with your other keepers will give you a solid 2 rb and flex to start from, and there seems to be a lot of solid ppr wr's available in the middle of the draft and lots of guys with huge upside.

if there's no draft penalty for the keepers, id keep all 3 RBs. Especially since Forte can be a flex player. Then you can focus on WRs in the draft, or have the option to trade forte for a top tier WR later if you need.

i think Bowe's TD numbers will decrease this season. Last year's totals were a little bit of a fluke when you look at his catches and yardage numbers compared to TDs. I think he's a little over-rated going into this season based on the TDs.

Definitely forte, and this is coming from an avid forte hater. Bowe had a good year last year because of one thing, an easy schedule...he doesn't have that this year
