Charles looked fine in the preseason, he showed good lateral movement, better than most were expecting. KC has admitted to wanting to run the ball 500 times this year behind a strong O-line. I think Charles and Hillis are going to be one hell of a tandem this year.
Forte, I have my reservations about but not because Bush. It's important to remember Forte never got GL carries anyway and that's the only real time you'll be seeing Bush. My real problem is the change in the offensive mindset. Forte is undoubtedly going be asked to stay back and protect Cutler a bit more this year. He is not going to be the sole focal point of this offense like he was last year, which IMO, calls for a regression in stats. Will it be dramatic, I don't think so. Enough to merit his ADP be ever so slightly too high, yes.
