Fantasy Impact: Fantasy managers may want to keep an eye on how RB (former WR) Cordarrelle Patterson is used in the offense moving forward. The recently named starting QB Nick Foles isn't a runner, and Patterson may benefit from the loss of Cohen and his vacated targets.

WR Darnell Mooney caught two of his five targets for 19 yards in Chicago's 30-26 victory over the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Mooney saw a season-high five targets in Sunday's Week 3 win, but he logged his lowest receiving yard total of the season. The 22-year-old wideout has now hauled in eight catches for 93 yards and one touchdown over the first three weeks. Mooney is worth adding in deep-league formats.

The Chicago Bears DST allowed 26 points on 371 total yards while recording two sacks and one interception in the team's Week 3 win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact: The Bears allowed a season-high 26 points in Sunday's Week 3 win. It was another solid performance from Chicago's defense. The Bears will look to keep things rolling in Sunday's Week 4 contest against the Colts.

Chicago Bears HC Matt Nagy announced that Nick Foles is now their starting QB. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In addition to being named the starting QB, Nagy went one step further in calling Foles the "QB going forward," and added, "this is not a week to week situation." Foles completed 16 of 29 pass attempts for 188 yards, 3 TDs, and an INT in the Bears' 30-26 win over the Falcons in Week 3, so this comes as no surprise. The Bears offense was horrendous before Foles entered the game, and his late-game heroics brought the Bears to 3-0 on the season. Foles should be considered a matchup dependent back-end QB1 and is an option for those streaming QB in 12-team formats.

Cordarrelle Patterson carried four times for 13 yards in Sunday's Chicago's 30-26 win over the Falcons in Week 3.

Fantasy Impact: Patterson was mainly used out of the backfield and logged four carries for 13 yards in Sunday's 30-26 win over the Falcons. RB Tarik Cohen tore his ACL and has been ruled out for the season. Patterson is the backup RB behind starter David Montgomery and worth adding in deep-league formats.

Cairo Santos made one of his two field goal attempts and all three of his extra point tries in the Bears’ 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Santos has now missed a field goal in back-to-back weeks. Chiacgo's offense should move the ball more effectively with Nick Foles at quarterback, but Santos' inaccuracies make him a kicker to avoid most weeks.

Mitch Trubisky completed 13 of 22 pass attempts for 128 yards, one TD, and one INT, adding one carry for 45 yards in the Bears’ 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: After failing to spark the Bears offense against a depleted Falcons defense, Trubisky was benched for Nick Foles and forced to watch from the sidelines as Foles led a fourth-quarter comeback. It's entirely possible Trubisky remains on the bench in favor of Foles for Week 4, but this is a situation to keep an eye on. Foles under center would be an upgrade to the Bears' pass-catchers.

Ted Ginn caught one of three targets for 29 yards in the Bears’ 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Ginn hauled in a long-gainer but was otherwise an afterthought in this offense. He won’t see enough weekly volume to be more than a deep-league desperation flyer.

Anthony Miller corralled two of five targets for 41 yards and a TD in the Bears’ 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Miller had a solid showing in this one, and just like in Game 1’s comeback, Miller was on the receiving end of the go-ahead touchdown here, as he hauled in a 28-yard score with under two minutes to play. Miller has a chance to be flex-worthy moving forward with the more competent Nick Foles under center.

Jimmy Graham brought in six of 10 targets for 60 yards and 2 TDs in the Bears’ 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Graham finished behind only Allen Robinson for team lead in targets, receptions, and receiving yards, grabbing two touchdowns in the process. The veteran still has red-zone upside, and his three scores through three weeks show that he may be in the TE1 conversation moving forward.

Allen Robinson caught 10 of 13 targets for 123 yards and a TD in the Bears’ 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: After two weeks of middling production, the Penn State product broke out in a big way, leading his team in targets, receptions, and receiving yards. His score came on a 37-yard catch-and-run late in the fourth quarter. He’ll look to keep the momentum going against Indy next week, where he might have Nick Foles under center for the whole game.

David Montgomery rushed 14 times for 45 yards, and caught two of three targets for nine yards in the Bears’ 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Monty wasn’t able to get much going in this one as Chicago played catchup most of the afternoon. Still, he out-touched Tarik Cohen 16-5 and looks to have secured a workhorse role for the Bears. He’ll be an RB2/flex moving forward.

Fantasy Impact: Jenkins sustained a ligament tear in his thumb Week 2 against the Giants and was placed on the injured reserve Thursday. He will be eligible to return Week 6. The Bears signed Daniel McCullers for defensive line depth.

Javon Wims caught both of his targets for 17 yards in the Bears’ 17-13 win over the Giants on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Wims now sports a 3/18/1 receiving line through two games and should remain on the waiver wire in most formats.

Fantasy Impact: Quinn signed with the Bears this offseason and will play opposite Khalil Mack. The Bears healthy defensive line should give Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley plenty of problems in this game.

Bears' rookie Cole Kmet was unable to get his first NFL reception during Chicago's win against the Detroit Lions. Kmet only saw one target in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Kmet had a high draft capital, but is well behind Jimmy Graham at the tight end position on the Bears. Graham had three receptions for 25 yards and a touchdown compared to Kmet's lone target.

Khalil Mack is officially playing against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. (Source: Chris Burke on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Mack will be active and makes the Bear's D/ST a better option against the Lions on Sunday. Mack was listed questionable and had limited practices leading up to Week 1.

Eddy Pineiro placed on IR

Bears kicker Eddy Pineiro has been placed on IR and will be able to return Week 4. (Source: Chicago Bears on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Pineiro had a solid 2019 campaign for the Bears, draining 82.1% of his attempts and not missing any high-pressure attempts. Because of new rules due to COVID-19, Pineiro will be able to return to game action Week 4 against the Colts. The Bears signed veteran kicker Cairo Santos and he should handle the kicking duties for the first few weeks.

Akiem Hicks was unable to practice on Friday or Saturday with a reported quad issue. He's listed as day-to-day. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Hicks' 2019 season was plagued with injuries, but he helped the Bears defense get off to a historically great start while healthy the first four weeks. The Bears "points against" after Hicks' Week 4 injury nearly doubled for the rest of the season. In addition, opposing offenses were able to focus on fellow superstar Khalil Mack, keeping him to just four sacks over the final 12 weeks. Hicks' presence is invaluable for the Bears and they'll hope for a healthier 2020 season.
