2. Is Stefon Diggs the real deal or is he getting a lot more hype after a couple of nice weeks in Fantasy? Besides Diggs, which of Teddy Bridgewater’s targets should the Bears secondary be looking out for?

While I really like Diggs, I’m not ready to call him the next Cris Carter. The young man run solid routes and is amazingly athletic. He’s also been Bridgewater’s top targeted wide receiver for the last three games. The rookie has already earned a spot starting opposite Mike Wallace, so for now there is no real reason to doubt that he is the real deal. But the Bears should also look out for tight end Kyle Rudolph, who appears to be a favorite target in the red zone.

3. Jay Cutler has had a decent season so far. What can he expect from Mike Zimmer’s defense? What’s been the key to the Vikings’ stingy #2 ranked scoring defense, which is only allowing 17 PPG this season?

He can expect pressure from all directions. The Vikings have had success pressuring quarterbacks by sending unique blitzes and confusing the offensive linemen. That makes things easy on the secondary, where safety Harrison Smith is the highest graded safety in the NFL and, although struggling with penalties, Xavier Rhodes continues to develop into the kind of cornerback that the team needs.
