The Bye week hopefully served the Chicago Bears well. Their ongoing injuries have been well-noted throughout the season, but from a skill position perspective, they should be as good to go this week as they ever will be.
Jay Cutler's hamstring had an extra week of rest and recovery, Alshon Jeffery's legs/ soft tissues should have been free from harm, and Eddie Royal's ankle shouldn't be much of an issue at this point.
On the other side of the ball, the Vikings starting running back Adrian Peterson is dealing with separate injuries to his hip and ankle, and while he is expected to play, his time may be limited. That's a good thing for Chicago's defense.
For some start/ sit advice, we turn to the mothership. Click HERE for their full advice column.
Start 'em: Even with some nagging ailments, Adrian Peterson needs to be in all fantasy lineups, though he's not been as good as normal the last couple weeks. ... Stefon Diggs has established himself as an absolute must-start. ... Blair Walsh has had at least seven fantasy points every game since Week 1, with 32 points the last two weeks. ... TheVikings' defense has been good-not-great, but still warrants starting consideration.
Sit 'em: With Jeffery back and healthy, Eddie Royal and Marquess Wilson are back to low-end fantasy options. ... The Bears' defense has as many negative fantasy days this season as positive.
