Matt Nagy wins Coach of the Year

Matt Nagy has been named the Associated Press 2018 coach of the year.

Fantasy Impact

His defensive coordinator Vic Fangio (now the Broncos head coach) won assistant of the year. Nagy led Chicago to 12 wins and a surprising division title in 2018 despite the limitations of quarterback Mitch Trubisky.

Chicago Bears D/ST intercepts two passes in loss to Eagles

The Chicago Bears D/ST intercepted two passes and recorded one sack in Sunday's 16-15 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

The Chicago Bears D/ST held down Nick Foles and the Eagles offense for much of the evening on Sunday, but the two second-half touchdowns they allowed were ultimately the difference as the Chicago offense struggled. The Bears will now hope to hold onto defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who has a number of head coaching interviews lined up.

Vic Fangio will interview with Broncos and Dolphins on Monday

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Bears DC Vic Fangio will interview for the Dolphins and Broncos head coaching positions on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Fangio has worked wonder with Chicago's defense this season, which has been one of the best units in all of football. Fangio has to wait until Monday since the Bears have a playoff game this weekend.

Chicago Bears generates four sacks in Bears win

The Bears defense sacked Kirk Cousins four times but failed to force a turnover in their 24-10 win in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

It wasn't the most productive fantasy day for the Bears D/ST but they still finished the season as a top unit. They will be a strong option in DFS contests next week playing at home against the Eagles.

Chicago Bears D/ST relatively quiet in Week 16 win

The Bears defense held the 49ers to just nine points in the 14-9 win in Week 16. However, they were only able to generate one sack and force one turnover.

Fantasy Impact

Not a big fantasy day for the Bears D/ST. They will close out the regular season in Minnesota against Kirk Cousins and the Vikings. Continue to start them if you're still in the fantasy playoffs.
