Chicago Bears

NFC North

Fantasy Impact: Foles is widely expected to spend the 2020 season as Chicago's quarterback but the team is insistent that this is an "open competition" between the two. It also remains to be seen whether or not we will even have all four preseason games this year. Chicago might actually be better off giving Foles all the reps in a shortened off-season. Foles being named the starter would be good news for Allen Robinson.

Fantasy Impact: Miller injured his shoulder Week 17 and had another surgery shortly after. It was reported that he is on track to be ready for training camp. Miller believes 2020 will be his best season. “I’ve matured a lot on the field and I’ve gained a lot of knowledge, especially this off-season,” Miller said. “I’ve been studying up a lot on other players and seeing what they do so I can enhance my game.” The 25-year-old hauled in 52 catches for 656 yards and two touchdowns across 16 games in 2019. He is slated to be the Bears’ WR2 behind Allen Robinson. Miller is currently 48th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings.

Less than a week after declining Mitch Trubisky's fifth-year tender, Bears GM Ryan Pace said that “We believe in Mitch — that doesn’t change." (Source: Chicago Sun-Times)

Fantasy Impact: Trubisky's days as a starting quarterback seemed to be behind him after the Bears recently traded for Nick Foles, but Pace's comments contradict that common thought. Pace has really tied his reputation to the former second-overall pick after he traded up for him in 2017 and lauded him as the future of the franchise. Since then Trubisky has struggled, posting a 48/29 TD/INT ratio and going 23-18 with a roster full of talent, while only seeing one playoff game in three seasons. There's a slight chance that Mitch can win the starting gig in camp this year, but Foles seems to have a lock on the job. Our consensus rankings have Foles ranked as our 31st overall quarterback and Trubisky as the 34th, meaning that we predict Foles to start as well. These quotes from Pace sound like encouraging coachspeak in hopes to light a fire under Trubisky in a contract year, but it would be shocking to see anyone besides Foles under center Week 1.

The Bears and free agent wide receiver and return specialist Ted Ginn have agreed to a one-year deal. (Source: Chicago Bears on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Drafted ninth overall in 2007, Ginn has had a steady career after failing to live up to his initial pre-draft hype. Although he's never cracked 60 catches or 800 yards in a single season, the speedy Ginn can still open up the field for his teammates, as seen last year when Saints' Michael Thomas caught 149 balls for 1,725 yards. Ginn himself doesn't have much fantasy value, but his presence in Chicago should keep defenses honest and open up additional opportunities for Allen Robinson, who saw 9.6 targets per game in 2019, good for third-highest in the league.

LeDarius Mack signs with Bears

Fantasy Impact: Mack will bring a lot of hype to the Chicago defense as he'll get the opportunity to play alongside his superstar older brother on the Bears' defensive line. As an undrafted free agent, he'll have to prove himself during camp but he brings a similar skillset to the table as his brother. Although a bit undersized at 5'11, Mack ran a 4.66 40-yard dash at his Pro Day and is a natural athlete. There have been a few brother duos in the NFL in recent seasons and the Mack's hope to be the next.

The Chicago Bears have selected wide receiver Darnell Mooney with the No. 173 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Mooney is an undersized wide receiver who has vertical speed but is probably destined for a role as a slot receiver in Chicago. He has big-play ability but will offer inconsistent production for fantasy owners, at least in his first year.

Per his agent, Former Bears TE Trey Burton has agreed to a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Burton will reunite with Colts Head Coach Frank Reich for whom he played for back in Philadelphia. Reich was the offensive coordinator in 2017-2018 when the Eagles won the Super Bowl and Burton was a part of the famous “Philly Special” scoring play. Burton joins TE Jack Doyle in Indianapolis, but probably doesn’t hold much fantasy value, even with his familiarity in Reich’s offensive scheme. After Eric Ebron left for Pittsburgh last month, Doyle was being considered a fringe top-15 TE, but that ranking might come down a notch and be more like top-20 with the addition of Burton. At this point, unless Doyle goes down with an injury, Burton doesn’t hold much fantasy value.

Bears TE J.P. Holtz has signed his exclusive rights free agent tender and will return to Chicago for the 2020 season. (Source: Kevin Fishbain on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Holtz has been a part of three organizations in his three years in the NFL, Cleveland, Washington, and most recently Chicago. In his career, he’s caught just seven passes for 91 yards. He played some fullback and contributed on special teams last year for the Bears. Chicago announced they released TE Trey Burton, so maybe they are pleased with what they’re getting from Holtz as a 3rd or 4th string TE that can play both on offense and special teams.

Fantasy Impact: The 26-year old undrafted defensive tackle out of Utah has played the past three seasons in Chicago, racking up 65 tackles and 7.5 sacks in 44 games played. He brings a high motor and strong intangibles to both the defensive and special teams units for the Bears.

Leonard Floyd to be cut by Bears

Tue, Mar 17th 12:22pm EDT
By Dave Kluge

Bears are releasing former first-round draft pick Leonard Floyd. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This news comes just moments after the Bears announced that they are signing Robert Quinn to a five-year deal to play opposite of Khalil Mack. Floyd has showed some promise throughout with career as an athletic pass-rusher, but his fifth-year option was a bit to much for the Bears' liking and they will let him walk. Floyd will almost certainly be signed to a new team within the coming days. After 7.0 sacks his rookie season in 12 games, he failed to crack more than 4.5 in a season and saw his sack total regress in each of his four seasons as a pro. Still, a change of scenery can help the former first-rounder get his career back on track. Best case scenario for Floyd would be to land somewhere where he'll have a limited role and good coaching.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Chase Daniel has reached a three-year, $13.05 million contract with the Detroit Lions. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Daniel has spent the last few seasons with the Bears and actually beat Detroit on Thanksgiving last year. He’ll function as a serviceable backup to Matthew Stafford moving forward.

Nick Kwiatkoski tweeted a photo of the new Las Vegas stadium and Ian Rapoport confirmed that he will be playing for the Raiders next season. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kwiatkoski has been a Chicago fan-favorite for years and it was assumed that they wouldn't have the assets to retain him this season. Vontaze Burfict only played four games last season before suffering a suspension through the end of the year and his future with the team is up in the air. He has vowed to come back and change the way he plays, but the Raiders' investment in Kwiatkoski shows that they may be ready to move on. If so, Kwiatkoski would become a run-stuffing starting middle linebacker and would have the ability to launch himself into fantasy relevance. Keep an eye on the Raiders' camp to see how this depth chart will shake out. Kwiatkoski's contract is 3 years/$21M with $13.5M guaranteed.

Bears general manager Ryan Pace told reporters that he believes David Montgomery can be the team's featured running back in 2020 while carrying a heavier load. (Source: Jeff Dickerson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Montgomery finished the 2019 season with over 1,000 total yards and seven touchdowns. He was limited overall by the team's offense, largely stemming from their trouble at QB. Still, Montgomery is a candidate to take the next step forward in 2020. He's currently a low-end RB2 in our early expert consensus rankings.

Chicago Bears D/ST finished with two interceptions and a fumble recovery in the Bears’ 21-19 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Chicago Bears D/ST ended the season with a strong showing against a backup squad of Vikings, though no sacks were recorded. It's been a highly disappointing campaign for last year's No. 1 D/ST, particularly from stud Khalil Mack.

Category: Game Recaps

Eddy Pineiro connected on all four of his field-goal attempts and his only extra-point attempt in the Bears’ 21-19 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Pineiro ended the year strong, drilling all five of his kicks in Sunday's narrow victory, including the game-winning 22-yarder. Pineiro struggled through much of the year, and his status for 2020 is uncertain at this time.

Category: Game Recaps

Riley Ridley caught three of four targets for 54 yards in the Bears’ 21-19 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Ridley saw some involvement in the passing game over the final weeks of the season, though he was rarely utilized over the course of the season. The rookie out of Georgia ends the year with a 6/69 receiving line.

Category: Game Recaps

Cordarrelle Patterson carried twice for 14 yards in the Bears’ 21-19 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Patterson saw little involvement Sunday, as has been the case all year. He should continue to occupy the role of low-usage, gadget player moving forward -- a role which gives him very little fantasy appeal.

Category: Game Recaps

Allen Robinson corralled nine of 12 targets for 71 yards in the Bears’ 21-19 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: A-Rob paced Chicago in receiving yards and targets once again, finishing the season strong despite failing to score. It was a successful season for Robinson by all accounts, as he produced a 98/1,147/7 receiving line -- his first thousand-yard campaign since 2015 and the most single-season receptions of his career.

Category: Game Recaps

Tarik Cohen carried four times for 21 yards, adding nine receptions for 44 yards in the Bears’ 21-19 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Cohen ends the season on a high note for PPR enthusiasts, grabbing nine balls in the upset victory. Despite mustering only 669 total yards, Cohen ends the year with a healthy 79 receptions.

Khalil Mack adds another sack

Mon, Dec 23rd 1:27pm EST
By Andrew Liang

Khalil Mack finished Sunday’s 26-3 loss to the Chiefs with four total tackles and one sack.

Fantasy Impact: Through 16 games this season Mack has 46 tackles and 8.5 sacks. Even though he seems to be heating up as of late, IDP owners will need a sack from him in Week 17 (Green Bay) to warrant a starting fantasy spot.
