The Bears' secondary is still banged up so look for Stafford to take advantage of that. If Hoyer is able to keep it close, Stafford could have another incredibly strong week, but more likely, he will just be a solid QB1 in Week 4. 
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Stafford has played well this season, ranking third in fantasy points for quarterbacks, and now he faces a Chicago secondary that is allowing a 67 percent completion rate and is without Kyle Fuller. The Lions are also thin at running back and will need to pass the ball to scoreThe Steelers get Le'Veon Bell back this game, which should help them have a more balanced and successful offense, which was not the case last week in Philadelphia. Kansas City has a good defense, and it will be a struggle to put up big numbers, but I believe the Steelers' defense will allow some points to Kansas City and with Bell and Antonio Brown at full go, Roethlisberger will be able to move the ball and probably will need to score more than 20 points to win this game
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Bears are 14th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Stafford has been slinging the ball well early in the season. He is a QB1 in a game that should be high scoring.The Chiefs are 4th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Big Ben is a QB1 regardless of matchup.
FantasyPros Staff
FantasyPros
 Roethlisberger and the entire Steelers offense will look to bounce back in Week 4 against the Chiefs. He has produced 0.44 fantasy points per drop back this season, but has thrown the fifth most interceptions in the league.
