Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Woods has struggled to live up to the offseason hype with this offense being as run-heavy as it is, but he's still been a consistent option for your starting lineup every single week. Woods should be viewed as a high-end WR3 in this matchup against the vaunted Bears pass defense. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was good to see Woods get 10 targets last week because he seemed to be settling into the 5-7 target range over the last month. He's not off the hook completely, but we're headed in the right direction. He'll need the targets against the Bears if he wants to post a solid fantasy line. The Bears have allowed an unbelievable 1.39 PPR points per target to receivers this year, which is the lowest mark in the league, while no other team has allowed less than 1.58 points per target to them. They've now played against nine wide receivers who've seen six or more targets, and they've yet to allow any of them to finish better than WR23, including Calvin Ridley, Mike Evans, Robby Anderson, and D.J. Moore. And while touchdowns have saved Woods from low yardage totals this year, the Bears have allowed just one touchdown to receivers through six games. Woods will also be playing against Kyle Fuller most of the game, who happens to be the Bears best cornerback. It's extremely tough to bench Woods in season-long leagues but dial back expectations into the low-end WR2 range. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bears are 3rd against fantasy wide receivers, I could see this game being like the 15-6 game these teams played in 2018. Woods is more of a WR2 in a game that figures to be low-scoring.
