Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's thrown 29 touchdowns through 10 games this year, which is his highest total since 2016. If he continues this pace, he'll break his previous career-high of 45 touchdowns that he set in 2011. After crushing a matchup with the Colts who had allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points per play to their opponents, Rodgers will return home to play against a Bears team that's allowed just 1.21 PPR points per offensive play to their opponents, which is the lowest mark in the league. The Bears have allowed a touchdown on just 3.43 percent of pass attempts this year, which ranks second to only the Rams. All in all, the Bears pass defense has allowed just 0.393 fantasy points per actual pass attempt, which is also second to the Rams. It does help to know that Rodgers leads the league with 11 pass plays that have gone for 40-plus yards, as that can provide some instant relief in tough matchups. It is worth noting that Rodgers hasn't thrown for more than 286 yards against this Bears defense since back in 2016, and they play twice a year. Over their last three games, he's thrown just two touchdowns against them. Dating back to the start of last year, there've been just two quarterbacks who've averaged more than 7.72 yards per attempt against the Bears. You'd have to go all the way back to Week 7 of 2018 (span of 36 games) to find the last time they allowed more than two passing touchdowns in a game. Divisional games mean a lot and are often closely contested between these two teams. Rodgers is a low-end QB1 this week and one who might disappoint.Week 11 reminded us of who Tannehill has been since taking over as the starter for the Titans. Even in a brutal matchup, he goes out and produces fantasy numbers. He finished with 21.86 fantasy points against the Ravens, and that's despite his receivers dropping a few balls early on in that contest. To be fair, the Ravens did completely sell out to try and stop the run, but kudos to Tannehill for taking advantage of that. Despite getting punched in the mouth by Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense last week, the Colts have still allowed just the third-fewest fantasy points per game this year. It surely doesn't help that their opponents have run just 59.8 plays per game. If you look at fantasy points per actual pass attempt (no rushing), the Colts have allowed the second-fewest points per attempt to quarterbacks, behind only the Rams. Knowing the Titans pass the ball just 51.3 percent of the time, that's a real issue. So, when you see Tannehill's low numbers from their first meeting (27 attempts, 147 yards, one touchdown), you shouldn't be all that shocked. They're not unbeatable, though. There have now been three quarterbacks who've thrown for 300-plus yards against them, and three quarterbacks who've thrown for three touchdowns. This game will be in a dome, which certainly helps this time of the year. He's certainly not a must-play in this game, but he's also not someone you must avoid as a mid-tier QB2.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
This is a difficult matchup with Chicago, but at this point A-Rodg is matchup-proof. He had a big game against Indy in Week 11, and after losing that game in OT, he'll likely come into this one with something to prove. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Rodgers was not great against the Bears last year, he had 406 yards passing, 2 passing TDs, no picks, and 31 rushing yards. He is putting up better numbers this year, but the Bears are also the best fantasy QB D in the NFL. Rodgers is a low-upside QB1. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Tannehill's had a brutal stretch of matchups here recently and it continues yet again with the Colts defense that held him in check just a couple of weeks ago. Tannehill can be viewed as a mid-range QB2 this week.
