Chicago Bears Fantasy Football: Start 'Em and Sit 'Em vs the Rams

Could Devin Hester find some Dome Magic this week? - Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The 6-4 Chicago Bears travel to St. Louis to take on the 4-6 Rams this Sunday for a Noon central time kickoff. Here's some fantasy advice for the Bears, and if you have any fantasy related questions, stick 'em in the comment section and our knowledgeable members will chime in.

How will the artificial surface and controlled environment of the Edward Jones Dome play into the speed of the Chicago Bears offense and defense?

Start 'Em

Matt Forte RB - A good bounce back game for Matt Forte last week, I'd expect more of the same this week against the Rams. They have a middle of the road defense, and I would expect the Bears to find success moving the ball.

Brandon Marshall WR - Marshall was held without a TD last week, but in his previous five games he had six TDs. The Rams do have a couple solid corners, but both are 5'10". I can see a few jump ball situations for the Bears receivers.

Alshon Jeffery WR - In the last 4 weeks, Jeffery only has 1 TD, but he's amassed 25 catches and 362 yards in that time. He was also targeted 46 times in those four games. Start him again.

Chicago Bears Defense - Even with the numerous injuries to the Bears D, they still find a way to stay fantasy relevant. Rookie David Bass had a pick-6 last week, Jon Bostic had an interception, and they added had a forced fumble and a few sacks. Devin Hester has had some success in domes throughout his career, maybe this is the week he takes one all the way.

Robbie Gould K - Playing indoors will be a welcome change of pace after last week, when he still went 3-3 in that ridiculous weather.

Sit 'Em

Martellus Bennett TE - Martellus Bennett only had 2 receptions for 48 yards last week, but his potential still pegs him as a low-end TE1. My advice is check the match-up game with this position this week, because the Rams have allowed the 2nd fewest points to TEs in a standard Yahoo scoring league. If your other guy has a better match-up, play him.

Jay Cutler QB - Just in case you're weren't aware, Jay Cutler has already been ruled out against the Rams.

Josh McCown QB - I'm a big fan of Josh McCown, I just wouldn't trust him to start on my fantasy team. Then again, if you are in a bye week crunch, you could do worse than going with the hot McCown.

What are your thoughts for the Bears fantasy options this week?
