Matt Barkley Somehow Not the Worst Quarterback in His Own Game Sunday, Off Fantasy Radars

Quarterback Matt Barkley's time to shine was very short-lived as any goodwill garnered in Week 12 was erased off the planet Sunday against the 49ers. For starters, the entire first quarter involved zero completed passes by either team. By the time it was over, Barkley had completed 11-of-18 passes for 192 yards and no touchdowns,... Read More

Cameron Meredith and Eddie Royal Look Like Men Without Roles, Great Matchup Only Reason to Consider Using Either

Somehow the recent losses of tight end Zach Miller and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery did nothing to improve the fantasy stock of fellow Bears' receivers Cameron Meredith and Eddie Royal. After the two combined to catch only 3-of-10 targets for 13 yards Week 12 and watched players behind them on the depth chart outproduce them,... Read More

Marquess Wilson Has Great Matchup to Establish Fantasy Value, Still Too Early to Count On

Wide receiver Marquess Wilson made a huge splash in Week 12 and will look to make that into a trend when the Bears face the 49ers this weekend. He caught 8-of-11 targets for 125 yards and a touchdown last week against the Titans in only his second game of the season after missing the entire... Read More

Daniel Brown and Deonte Thompson Flash Possible Fantasy Potential, Too Soon to Know for Sure

With quarterback Matt Barkley under center, the Bears' passing game took a turn for the strange in Week 12 as tight end Daniel Brown and wide receiver Deonte Thompson each scored their first career touchdowns. Brown finished the day catching 3-of-4 targets for 24 yards while Thompson hauled in 5-of-9 targets for 44 yards. But... Read More

Expect Big Things From Jordan Howard and Jeremy Langford Sunday Against the NFL's Worst Run Defense

This is going to be a big day for Bears' running backs as the team welcomes the NFL's worst run defense in the 49ers to Chicago for Week 13. Rookie Jordan Howard will be the main beneficiary as he should have little problems picking up his fifth game of the season with at least 100... Read More

Connor Barth Facing Another Sunday With Low Scoring Potential, Avoid Using Week 13

Kicker Connor Barth is looking at another low scoring week this Sunday as the Bears face off against the 49ers in Week 13. After being limited to only three fantasy points in Week 12--all from extra point kicks--he faces a very similar situation this weekend against the 49ers. Though the 49ers are allowing the fifth-most... Read More

Matt Barkley Has Great Streaming Matchup Sunday, But Still Too Risky For Most Fantasy Players

Quarterback Matt Barkley was able to find some success Week 12 in his first start of the season against the Titans despite very low expectations. While his chances for continuing fantasy success remains low, there's no denying his Week 13 matchup against the 49ers is too soft to ignore for anyone looking for a streaming... Read More

Quarterback Jay Cutler will miss the remainder of the season the Bears announced today as he has been placed on the injured reserve. The shoulder injury that kept him out of Week 12 will require season-ending surgery as it turned out he suffered a torn labrum. Head coach John Fox declined to answer questions about... Read More

Connor Barth Doesn't Find Much Work Sunday, Team Attempts Zero Field Goals

Kicker Connor Barth, as predicted, spent most of Sunday on the bench as the Bears' offense failed to get much of anything going until garbage time. He finished the day going 3-for-3 in extra point kicks, with two coming in the fourth quarter as the team struggled all day long to move the ball. Considering... Read More

Jordan Howard Has Decent Day Against Tough Titans' Defense, Finds Pass-Catching Redemption

Running back Jordan Howard wasn't able to cross the 100-rushing-yard barrier or score a touchdown Sunday in the Bears' 27-21 loss to the Titans. But he did two things more important: find pass-catch redemption by hauling in 3-of-5 targets for 43 yards and keep backup Jeremy Langford out of the offense. All told, Howard finished... Read More

Matt Barkley Not As Awful As Advertised, Still Should Be Off Nearly All Fantasy Radars

Quarterback Matt Barkley, the man pressed into service following Jay Cutler and Brian Hoyer's injuries, took advantage of garbage time Sunday to not be as awful as advertising. With the Bears losing 24-7 coming into the fourth quarter, Barkley was able to find the two Bears' receivers no one was owning in Marquess Wilson and... Read More

Connor Barth Faces Another Day of Light Work, Look Elsewhere Week 12 for Footwork

Kicker Connor Barth has seen his fantasy star diminish quite a bit recently following the Bears' recent quarterback changes. With the team down to their third-string quarterback and missing their top two receivers, the Titans will have little trouble swallowing this offensive whole into a black hole of sadness. Over the past four weeks, Barth... Read More

Cameron Meredith and Eddie Royal Set to Suffer Sunday, New Quarterback Deflates Their Fantasy Value

Sorry to break the hearts of anyone who hasn't heard, but quarterback Jay Cutler's latest injury has emptied out the Bears' quarterback cupboard.

Jordan Howard Looking at Heavy Workload, Needs Pass-Catching Redemption to Keep Jeremy Langford Away

Rookie running back Jordan Howard was overexposed as a pass-catcher last week against the Giants, but he'll have a chance at redemption Week 12 when the Titans come to town.

Jay Cutler on the Shelf With a Shoulder Injury, Matt Barkley Set to Start Week 12

Looks like the Bears got their wish to get rid of quarterback Jay Cutler. He suffered a shoulder injury in the team's Week 11 loss that could keep him out for the rest of the season. If Cutler's season is indeed done, he ends it completing 59.1% of his passes for 1,059 yards, four touchdowns,... Read More

Jordan Howard Still Rushing Well, But Overexposure as a Pass-Catcher Could Cut Into Future Touches

Rookie running back Jordan Howard was solid again as the Bears' lead rusher Sunday, but his overexposure as a pass-catcher is just one of many takeaways from the team's 22-16 loss to the Giants. He wasn't able to reach the 100-rushing-yard plateau again but did pick up 77 yards on 17 touches, even if backup... Read More

Connor Barth Misses His First Kick in Over a Month, Offense Gives Him Little to Work With

In a season where kickers missing are becoming a highlight norm, Bears' kicker Connor Barth had been able to keep his leg out of those clips for over a month.

Cameron Meredith Underwhelming in First Post-Alshon Game, Eddie Royal and Marquess Wilson Also Disappoint

Wide receiver Cameron Meredith continues to look like an afterthought in the Jay Cutler offense as the Bears' left New York losers Sunday, falling to the Giants 22-16. Meredith caught all four of his targets for 49 yards, leading the team's wide receivers in catches and yards. But that was fairly easy to do as... Read More

Jay Cutler Continues to be Anything But Smoking, Another Injured Receiver Further Diminishes His Value

The answer to the question no one is asking--can quarterback Jay Cutler's season get any worse?--strangely continues to be "yes" as Sunday's 22-16 loss to the Giants proved. While he was definitely better than he was last week, completing 17-of-30 passes for 252 yards, one touchdown and one interception, he has seemingly set this as... Read More

Jeremy Langford Rushes for TD, Could See More Time as Passing Back

Backup running back Jeremy Langford saw his most game-time action since Week 3 in the Bears' 22-16 loss to the Giants Sunday.

Jeremy Langford Isn't Fantasy Relevant Yet, But He's Upgraded to Handcuff Status

Running back Jeremy Langford has not been having the season anyone was hoping he would have in 2016.

Connor Barth Faces Off Against Former Bears' Franchise Foot, Great Matchup Makes Him a Top-10 Kicker

Kicker Connor Barth comes foot-to-foot Sunday with the man whose job he unceremoniously took this season in the Giants' Robbie Gould.
