It looked like Chester Taylor was going to be a thorn in Matt Forte’s side when he was signed in free agency in the spring of 2010. While Taylor was active in the Bears’ offense, Forte was clearly the main option as the Bears struggled with a consistent running game from week to week. Since his breakout year as a starting tailback in 2006, Taylor has remained an accountable backup for the Vikings and Bears.
Look to Taylor as a veteran who holds waiver wire pickup value if something should happen to Forte but, like last year, this veteran isn’t worth owning to start the season.
Chester Taylor signed with the Bears on the first day of free agency. Taylor will help the Bears but he has no fantasy value unless Matt Forte gets hurt.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Chester Taylor only enjoyed one season as the Vikings true starting running back before Adrian Peterson came to town and spoiled the party. For Taylor, he proved to be a strong backup for Minnesota’s super star but his fantasy value was a hand cuff at best.
Still, Taylor continued to show last season, he could be a productive player in the running and passing game when his number was called.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: This offseason Taylor left the Vikings and choose the Bears as his new destination. Once again, Taylor will be a backup for a young running back as Matt Forte will see the main work in the offense. Since the Bears will be a pass heavy group this season Taylor may see less than 100 carries.
Where Taylor should still see a good amount of work is in his reception total as he will probably post over 50 this season. If Forte should continue to have health issues this season, Taylor would make for a nice flex play option if given a chance to start.

- Effective When Starting
