Fantasy Monsters of the Midway: Start/Sit Guide for Week 13

Fantasy Monsters of the Midway: Start/Sit Guide for Week 13

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ Gearing up for playoffs in your fantasy football league? There are a couple Bears players worth a lineup spot. The Chicago Bears left Ford Field on Thanksgiving victors over to Detroit Lions, who now sit at 0-10-1. It took a walkoff field goal to beat the winless division rivals, and the Bears largely avoided the running game for no reason they’re willing to share. Quarterback Andy Dalton, filling in for Justin Fields (ribs), had one of his best games of his post-Bengals career, topping 300 passing yards and hooking up with tight end Jimmy...

8 Bears sit out practice, but Justin Fields was back

Photo by Harry How/ We check in on Wednesday’s Bears and Cardinals injury report, and things are looking bleak for Chicago. Even with a few extra days to rest up following their Thanksgiving day win in Detroit, the Chicago Bears had eight players sit out practice today at Halas Hall. They face a tough Arizona Cardinals team this Sunday, so they’ll need all hands on deck to take on the NFC’s current number one seed. Here’s are the players the Bears listed as out on Wednesday.

Chicago Bears Sackwatch 2021: Week 12 vs Detroit Lions

Photo by Nic Antaya/ Only one sack allowed to break down this week! For only the second time this season the Chicago Bears only allowed a single sack in a game, but considering the other time was also against the Detroit Lions way back in week 4, I think that says more about Detroit than it does the Bears. But I did think Chicago’s overall pass protection was solid throughout the entire afternoon in Detroit. Back in week 4 the Bears started Justin Fields at quarterback, and he was responsible for that sack allowed, but Fields’ pocket awareness and internal clock has...
