Fantasy Sit/Start advice from SB Nation: Bears vs Lions

Come take a look at some fantasy advise from the experts at SB Nation!

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Editor's Note: A new $2,000,000 one-week fantasy football league is open on FanDuel for Week 6. First place wins $150,000 on Sunday. Join now!

The 2-3 Chicago Bears are on a two-game winning streak, and the Detroit Lions are sitting winless at 0-5.  While the books kicked off the week having the Lions favored by three points (the game is in Detroit), most are predicting a Chicago Bears victory.

From a fantasy football perspective, our friends at SBN have some advice for us:

BEARS

Start 'em: It feels weird, I know, but Jay Cutler is a QB1 this week. He's played well and draws a subpar defense. Use him. ... Matt Forte is still a monster; he's averaging 13.6 fantasy points a game. ... Robbie Gould has been one of the league's most productive kickers this year.

LIONS

Start 'em: Having Calvin Johnson in fantasy has been frustrating, but it's still Calvin Johnson. You're using him.

SUMMARY

Anyone have Jay Cutler as their starting quarterback today?

Start in every league: Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, Robbie Gould, Calvin Johnson
Start if you're desperate: Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett, Detroit defense
Bench: Eddie Royal, Marquess Wilson, Zach Miller, Khari Lee, Chicago defense, Matthew Stafford, Theo Riddick, Ameer Abdullah, Joique Bell, Golden Tate, Tim Wright, Matt Prater
