If you had any of the Bears players on your fantasy team last week I know you were not a happy camper. They stunk up the joint in Green Bay. But I expect to see much different results this Sunday when the Rams visit Soldier Field.
Let's begin with Jay Cutler. Even though he had a poor game last week, I expect him to bounce back this week against the Rams. The Rams are giving up over 270 yards a game through the air so far this season. I can see Cutler getting 275 with a couple scores.
This is definitely the week to have Michael Bush on your fantasy team. The Rams are giving up 130/yds a game on the ground and with Matt Forte out this week with his ankle, Bush will see a lot of action this week. He could get over 100 yards and a score.
I'm not real big on any of the Bears wideouts this week. The only one that would normally get fantasy attention from week to week is Brandon Marshall, but this week he'll have Cortland Finnigan across the line from him and Finnigan has a reputation of getting under the skins of even the best receivers. With Finnigan having a pick in each game so far this season, it should be a tough matchup for Marshall.
I Like the Bears defense this week to get a couple takeaways. St. Louis has had problems holding onto the ball this year and the Bears D is known for getting after that pigskin.
As far as the Rams go, Sam Bradford has only 1 interception so far. He did pass for over 300 yards against the Redskins, but a lot of his yardage last week came from Danny Amendola in the slot. With the Bears playing a lot of their Tampa 2 defense, that could happen again. Still I wouldn't start Bradford this week against the Bears defense.
Stephen Jackson: Depending who you believe, Jackson was either benched or kept out due to injury in the 2nd quarter last week. His status is still questionable, so keep an eye on that. If he doesn't go, Daryl Richardson should get the start. I don't like either back as a start however as the Bears are giving up less than 85/yds a game on the ground this year.
The only Ram I like for your fantasy team this week would be their kicker, Greg Zuerlein. he's 6 for 6 on FGs for the season and I can see the Rams getting to the Red Zone, but stall.
That's it for now good luck on Sunday.
