Fantasy football is a big reason the NFL has surpassed major league baseball as America's Pastime. Countless fantasy football fans all across the world are already starting to research for their fantasy drafts that are probably a couple months away. As an added bonus for Bears fans, they'll finally have some draftable Chicago Bears players to sprinkle on their teams this year. Offensive football should be back in Chicago.
Jay Cutler has some weapons and a new offensive system in place that will play to his strengths. A return to his Denver Pro Bowl form should be in the cards for Jay Sizzle. A legit number one receiver will be lining up in Soldier Field for the first time in about 10 years, not to mention a receiving corps that will no longer be the butt of jokes around the NFL. Number one WR, Brandon Marshall, will be a major contributor to the passing game.
Back in Cutler's Bronco offense he really enjoyed throwing to the tight end, and he threw quite a few balls to TE Greg Olsen back when Ron Turner allowed the position to matter too. Kellen Davis might be worth a late round #2 TE spot.
Matt Forte already said he won't miss the season, so he'll be a early pick among the backs, but Michel Bush may be a touchdown poacher. So depending on the early season carry split, Bush may be worth a roster spot.
And there's always the Bears defense and special teams, which could be a legit play every week.
