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