Chicago Bears

NFC North

Cordarelle Patterson disappointed once again in Week 5 against the Oakland Raiders. He took his only carry five yards.

Fantasy Impact: Patterson’s acquisition in the offseason was received with high hopes in the fantasy community. Many thought he could play a Tyreek Hill like role in Matt Nagy’s offense. Instead, he has seen a total of just 10 rushing attempts, and five targets through five weeks of action. Patterson saw just two offensive snaps in Week 5, compared to 15 on special teams.

Javon Wims disappointed with a one target, zero reception outing against the Oakland Raiders in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact: Javon Wims saw 93 percent of the Week 5 snaps, but somehow managed to see just one target. Allen Robinson, Tarik Cohen, and Anthony Miller operated as the team's top three receivers leaving Wims to massively disappoint. There had been some hope for Wims after a heavy snap count Week 4 saw him haul in four of five targets for 56 receiving yards. Unfortunately, Chase Daniel was never likely to be the man to make that happen. Wims is still a name to monitor if Taylor Gabriel’s concussion issues linger, but he is better left for those in extremely deep leagues.

Danny Trevathan finished Sunday’s 24-21 loss to the Raiders with a team high 11 total tackles (11 solo).

Fantasy Impact: Trevathan is the team leader in total tackles (44) through the first five weeks of the season. Start him every game once Chicago is back from the Bye in Week 6.

Chicago Bears D/ST provided two fumble recoveries in the Bears’ 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The Bears D/ST didn't manage a single sack and salvaged a poor day with two fumble recoveries. The team has a Week 6 bye to regroup before a tough matchup against the Saints in Week 7.

Eddy Pineiro made all three of his extra point attempts in the Bears’ 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: The Bears’ offense struggled to get much going, aside from three third-quarter touchdowns. Pineiro didn’t have many opportunities in this game, though better days are ahead.

Trey Burton caught three of four targets for 16 yards in the Bears’ 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Burton continues to be a minimal part of the Bears’ passing attack, no matter who’s in at quarterback. He’s not a reliable streaming option.

Category: Game Recaps


Anthony Miller caught four of seven targets for 52 yards in the Bears’ 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It was Miller’s biggest game of the season thus far, highlighting how dismal his season has been. Miller’s seven-touchdown effort as a rookie seems like a distant memory now, and he’s not a startable option right now.

Allen Robinson secured seven of eight targets for 97 yards and two TDs in the Bears’ 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Robinson was quiet in the first half before scoring twice in the third quarter on catches of 4- and 16-yards. His targets, receptions, and receiving yards led the Bears once again, and his high usage should keep him on the WR2/3 map moving forward.

Category: Game Recaps


Tarik Cohen rushed four times for 10 yards, adding six receptions for 39 yards in the Bears’ 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Cohen occupied his usual role as a pass-catching specialist, totaling just 49 yards in the game. His usage and production have taken a major step back from last season, and his value is limited to deeper PPR leagues.

Chase Daniel completed 22 of 30 passes for 231 yards, two TDs, and two INTs in the Bears’ 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: He also rushed once for two yards. As he did last season, Daniel filled in adequately for the injured Mitchell Trubisky, playing an efficient game of football. After trailing 17-0 at halftime, the Bears stormed back in the third quarter behind two Daniel touchdowns to Allen Robinson.

David Montgomery rushed 11 times for 25 yards and a TD in the Bears’ 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: He added one reception for 11 yards. Montgomery once again comfortably led the backfield in touches, though his limited usage is still questionable. It was encouraging to see him find the end zone for the second time this season, and he'll head into the bye week with 297 total yards and two touchdowns on the year.

Bears wide receiver Taylor Gabriel (concussion) has been ruled out for the team's Week 5 matchup against the Oakland Raiders in London. (Source: Chicago Bears)

Fantasy Impact: Gabriel missed the team's Week 4 matchup against the Vikings and will miss a second straight game this week due to the concussion. Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller, Javon Wims, and Cordarrelle Patterson figure to see targets in his absence.

The initial MRI on Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky revealed he has a dislocated left shoulder, with a slight labrum tear, but he does not need surgery, according to Adam Schefter. The thought is that he will be able to return for the team "sooner rather than later." (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Despite the nebulous 'sooner than later' note, the Bears are still likely to be without Trubisky for a period, with him doubtful to play Week 5. Chase Daniel lead the team to a win over a tough Vikings' defense, and the transition doesn't seem to be much of a downgrade for the Bears' offensive players, if at all. Trubisky can be safely dropped in 1QB redraft leagues given the injury and his start to the season.

Akiem Hicks (knee) will not play Sunday against the Vikings. (Source: Chicago Bears PR)

Fantasy Impact: Hicks was not expected to play after suffering a moderate knee injury last Monday. Roy Robertson-Harris will likely see an uptick in snaps in Hicks's absence.

Fantasy Impact: Davis had a very small role in the Bears' Week 3 win, and will miss Sunday's contest for personal reasons.

Kyle Fuller finished Monday’s 31-15 victory over Washington with seven total tackles (six solo) and one interception.

Fantasy Impact: Fuller is looking like his 2018 self already posting two interceptions and 19 total tackles. He is a must-own in IDP leagues that require starting defensive backs.

Khalil Mack stacked up two sacks, two forced fumbles, and three total tackles during Monday’s 31-15 win over the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: The Mack attack was on point Monday and all fantasy owners of Khalil Mack should be thrilled with his performance even if it was against Washington. Keep starting Mack on a regular basis.

Hasean Clinton-Dix dominated the entire field Monday night with nine total tackles (seven solo), two interceptions, and one touchdown. The Bears beat the Redskins 31-15 on the road.

Fantasy Impact: Prior to this game Ha Ha only had eight total tackles to his name. His performance and the Bears defenders definitely benefited from playing a bad Washington team. Clinton-Dix has a decent chance to get another interception over the next two weeks as the Bears take on the Vikings in Week 4 and the Raiders in Week 5.

Chicago Bears starting right tackle Bobby Massie is a surprise inactive for the team's Week 3 matchup against the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football. (Source: Chicago Bears on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: NFL Network's Mike Garafolo is reporting that Massie is not feeling well, which could explain his surprise status on Monday. The Bears will have to make do without their starting right tackle, which could have an impact on their offensive playmakers if the Chicago offensive line struggles without him.

Eddie Jackson (shoulder/knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against Washington. (Source: Chicago Bears on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After practicing fully Friday, Jackson was listed as a limited practice participant Saturday, a status downgrade that corresponded with the addition of a knee issue on top of his previously listed shoulder injury. He recorded 10 tackles in the Week 2 win over the Broncos, but his questionable designation makes him a risky fantasy IDP option, given the Bears' late kickoff this week.
