Dontrelle Inman hauled in five of 10 targets for 94 yards on Sunday against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: After making himself into a fantasy-relevant wide receiver after coming over to the Bears, Inman largely disappeared until having a shockingly good game against a tough Vikings defense. Inman is an unrestricted free agent in 2018, and has shown that he has the tools to succeed in the right situation.

Kendall Wright caught five of his eight targets for just 29 yards on Sunday against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Wright was briefly relevant in fantasy leagues but for the most part fell outside of the WR3 discussion. An unrestricted free agent, Wright will hopefully find himself in a better spot next year, on a team that will better use his talents.

Tarik Cohen rushed three times for 13 yards and caught six passes for 14 yards on Sunday against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Cohen started off the season strong before seeing fewer and fewer touches as the season wore on. He has an explosive play-making ability, and should hopefully be more involved next year with a new head coach.

Jordan Howard rushed nine times for nine yards and caught one pass for five yards on Sunday against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: This was obviously a poor way to end his fantasy season, but Howard did fine work as a whole playing through injury against mostly stacked boxes. Expect the Bears offense to open up next season under a new head coach and with another year under Mitchell Trubisky's belt, which will probably mean good things for the young running back.

Mitchell Trubisky completed 20 of 36 pass attempts for 178 yards on Sunday against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Trubisky didn't turn the ball over, but that's about the only positive takeaway for him from the game. He ends his rookie campaign with nine total touchdowns and seven interceptions, largely playing to a conservative gameplan. But he showed a lot of poise and skill and could be a breakout candidate next season.

Fantasy Impact: Missing his third straight game with a chest injury, Shaheen will sit for the season finale Sunday against the Vikings. A fantasy irrelevant Dion Sims will handle the Bears' TE duties for Week 17.

Category: Injury Updates


Dion Sims caught his only target for nine yards against the Lions.

Fantasy Impact: Sims saw more game-action because of Adam Shaheen's injury but obviously wasn't at all involved in the offense. If Shaheen misses next week, too, then Sims will have to be at least in the discussion of a potential streaming option against a Cleveland defense that simply can't defend tight ends.

Akiem Hicks finished Saturday's game against the Detroit Lions with four tackles, three of which were solo, plus a sack.

Fantasy Impact: Hicks returned to his dominance on Saturday, contributing yet again another sack. Consider Hicks a DL1 option for IDP leagues.

Nick Kwiatkoski finished Saturday's game against the Detroit Lions with eight tackles, six of which were solo.

Fantasy Impact: Kwiatkoski turned in a good performance on Saturday. Consider him a LB4 for deep IDP leagues.

Eddie Jackson finished Saturday's game against the Detroit Lions with eight total tackles, seven of which were solo, plus a fumble recovery.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson has really thrived the last few weeks, the rookie is coming in to his own. Consider him a DB3 for IDP leagues.

Markus Wheaton finished Saturday's game against the Detroit Lions with two catches for 42 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Wheaton finally made an impact on the Bears offense, but too little too late as he's been a major disappointment all season. He is not worth owning in fantasy leagues.

Josh Bellamy finished Saturday's game against the Detroit Lions with five catches for 70 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Bellamy had a good performance on Saturday as the Bears were forced to pass the ball to catch up. He is not worth starting in fantasy leagues.

The Chicago Bears D/ST had three sacks and forced two turnovers in Sunday's surprising blowout victory over the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: The Bears D/ST has been a better real life defense than fantasy, but they surprising held the Bengals to just 234 yards of total offense and just seven points. The Bears D/ST have a tough match-up next week against Detroit, but could have sneaky streaming potential championship week with a matchup against the turnover prone Cleveland Browns. Just don't count on them as your number one option.

Daniel Brown had two receptions for nine yards against the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: Brown is used sparingly by the Bears, as he only played on 19 of 76 (25%) offensive plays for the Bears on Sunday. He can be left alone in fantasy.

Prince Amukamara finished Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals with six solo tackles and a defended pass.

Fantasy Impact: Amukamara has been reliable the last few weeks, posting a consistent number of tackles weekly. He should be considered a DB4 for deep IDP leagues.

Danny Trevathan finished Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals with 10 tackles, four of which were solo, plus a defended pass.

Fantasy Impact: Trevathan is the number one linebacker for the Chicago Bears, he should be owned and started in all IDP leagues.

Christian Jones finished Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers with 13 tackles, 10 of which were solo, plus a sack.

Fantasy Impact: Jones had an incredible game on Sunday and shows much promise to a productive future. Jones should be considered a LB3 for IDP leagues.

Kyle Fuller finished Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers with six tackles, five of which were solo, plus two defended passes, and a interception.

Fantasy Impact: Fuller has had a productive 2017 season and this game was one of his better ones. He should be considered a DB4 for deep IDP leagues.

Cairo Santos was successful on two extra point attempts in the Bears loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. He was not able to finish the game as he tweaked his groin, according to Head Coach John Fox.

Fantasy Impact: There are better options than Santos for fantasy kickers.

Cre'von LeBlanc finished Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles with seven total tackles, six of which were solo, plus two defended passes.
