The Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers have both struggled from a fantasy perspective several times this season-- the Bears have been without their top offensive weapons for much of the season, and while Jay Cutler has had the offense in a rhythm, the numbers haven't always been there. If you're a Bears fan, you don't care about the numbers, but hey, this is a fantasy football article, so...

On the other side, the 49ers have been struggling all season long on offense, and their top running back, Carlos Hyde, is likely close to being shut down for the season with injury. That leaves Shaun Draughn to carry the load, and I'm not sure if he'll be a guy that can crank out the stats.

From SB Nation, we've got some Sit/ Start advice:

BEARS

Start ‘em: Against San Francisco, Jay Cutler stands a good shot at getting back on track. He's a fine starter. ... Matt Forte appears likely to take back the team's No. 1 running back job. ... Alshon Jeffery seems fully healthy, making him a clear must-start. ... This is Robbie Gould's best fantasy season in some time.

49ERS

Start ‘em?: The absence of Carlos Hyde has let Shaun Draughn rise; he has 23 fantasy points in three games. You'd like more upside than he has, but in a pinch, he's high-floor. ... Vance McDonald has had a pair of decent fantasy games in a row; it's a deep dive, but he has potential with Garrett Celek hurt. ... Phil Dawson has been good-not-great over the last month-plus.
