Week thirteen of the NFL season is here, and the Chicago Bears will be hosting the San Francisco 49ers. Let’s review the Chicago Bears fantasy matchup and who to start or sit this week.

Jordan Howard –  Jordan Howard had seven rushing attempts for six yards. Howard also had two catches for 13 yards. This weeks matchup is favorable for everybody on the field Sunday afternoon. The San Francisco 49ers are the 30th ranked rush defense in the NFL allowing 129 yards per game, and 10 touchdowns on the season.  Jordan Howard will take advantage of the young and injured 49ers defense. Start Howard and expect a big week from the bell cow running back.

Tarik Cohen – Tarik Cohen will be a key weapon this week in the passing game. Cohen only needs 10-12 touches to make an impact on any given Sunday and should see that volume against the 49ers. Start Cohen in the flex position with confidence as this game should be high scoring.

Mitchell Trubisky – In a losing effort Mitchell Trubisky threw for 147 yards and two interceptions. Trubisky had 33 passing attempts last week and seems like he will continue to see a bulk of the offense work through him. Trubisky has a nice matchup and should be considered a play for deeper leagues or a streaming option this week.

Cairo Santos – Cairo Santos missed his first field goal for the Chicago Bears on Sunday. It was a 54-yard attempt that looked short and wide right. Santos then proceeded to nail the 38-yard field goal after that. We know who Santos is, and can accredit that to rust. The Chicago Bears have a reliable kicker again and is worth a roster spot this week.

Dontrelle Inman – Dontrelle Inman was the only fantasy relevant Chicago Bear last week. Inman caught four passes for 64 yards. Inman continues to be Trubisky’s number one target, and the most reliable. Expect Inman to score his first touchdown as a Bear against the 49ers. Start Inman as a low WR2 option or for the flex position this week.
