Chicago Bears Fantasy Football Starts Week Four

CHICAGO, IL - SEPTEMBER 24: Quarterback Mike Glennon

Week four of the season is a short four-day turnaround, let’s review the top Chicago Bears fantasy matchups as they visit the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football.

Jordan Howard is still the premier back of the Chicago Bears. Howard proved it last week with his stellar performance against the Steelers. Howard got the job done on the ground, 138 rushing yards and two touchdowns. As well as receiving, five catches for 26 yards. He looked like the same running back that turned heads last season and will continue to do so against the Packers defense.

Tarik Cohen in the flex position has been a solid play all three weeks, and week four that will not change. His pass-catching ability and quickness make him a threat for big plays that the Bears offense is in dire need of. Cohen is a play in both PPR and standard fantasy leagues. He will get both targets catching, and split carries with Howard rushing.

Mike Glennon is a decent play this week if you are in need of a plug and play quarterback. He is ahead of Winston, Flacco, and Dalton in terms of fantasy points scored. Glennon’s matchup with the Packers defense makes him worth a shot if you drafted an under-performing quarterback. The Packers have given up 24 points, and 34 points the last two weeks on defense. As long as Dowell Loggains has the right gameplan the Bears and Glennon can take advantage of their weaknesses.

Zach Miller didn’t have a great game against the Steelers this past weekend. Miller caught one of his three targets for 17 yards. He was a non-factor, mainly because of the Bears lead and success running the ball. Miller is still a reliable target and can be a safety blanket for Glennon. Expect the Packers offense to put up points forcing the Bears to throw the ball.

Next: Will Bears get upset in Week Four?

Kendall Wright didn’t receive a single target against the Steelers despite playing in 35 of 65 offensive snaps. The Bears saw the running game working and stuck with it the entire game. Wright is still the best receiver on the roster and should be getting the bulk of the targets through the air.
