I can't help it, the promise of C.J. Spiller being a top 5 pick in 2013 is inside of me and I can't shake it loose. It might seem crazy to rank Spiller this high but do you remember how bad the Bears defense was last season?
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Bears should be better on D but were dreadful against run last year. Spiller lacks TD value but should see the ball a lot. Upside is key.
I've warmed up to Jennings considerably but DET pretty good against the run so I'm not expecting a mammoth outing.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Bears run defense was horrible last year, Spiller has a good chance to break some big runs in the opener.
The Lions 6th ranked fantasy running back defense will give Jennings problems. He is not likely to have a monster opener against that Front 4.
