2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Chicago Bears
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Bears just missed out winning the division last season, so they have a pretty good shot at a return to the playoffs. Chicago will need their defense to play better, though. If that happens, this team can make the playoffs and make a run. Their offense should be very good with three of the top offensive players in the game (Alshon Jeffery, Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte). The defense is the wild card, though, after a few down seasons compared to past years. They need to get better on that side of the ball to take another step forward this season.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
We don't think he'll have a huge season but receiver Marquess Wilson should produce some big games along the way as the No. 3 receiver for the Bears. He'll get a lot me playing time this season. He won't be consistent for fantasy teams but an option in the right matchup. Wilson can get around 700 yards and five touchdowns. He is a big-play threat with the ball in his hands.
FANTASY DUD
Tight end Martellus Bennett had a career season last year but might have a hard time matching those numbers. He has more to compete with for targets (three solid receivers), so he'll have some inconsistent weeks. Bennett scored just once touchdowns the last nine games of last season and had less than 50 yards seven of the last 10 games. His finish to the season is a pretty good indication of his role in the offense going forward.

Team Notes

Oct 27, 02:13 PM Chicago Bears LB Darryl Sharpton (hamstring) is considered week-to-week because of a hamstring injury in Week 8. Sharpton likely will not be able to play in Week 10 even though the team has a Week 9 bye.
Oct 27, 02:03 PM Chicago Bears OG Matt Slauson (pectoral) will miss the rest of the 2014 season after suffering a torn pectoral muscle in Week 8.
Oct 27, 01:43 PM Chicago Bears DE Lamarr Houston (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 8 and will miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Impact: This is a big loss for a defense that was already struggling.
Oct 26, 07:22 PM Chicago Bears DE Lamarr Houston (knee) will have an MRI on his right knee Monday, Oct. 27. He was injured celebrating a sack in the Week 8 game against the New England Patriots while his team trailed by 25 points in the fourth quarter.
