Week 15 of the NFL season is here, and the Chicago Bears will be visiting the Detroit Lions. Let’s review the Chicago Bears fantasy matchup and who to start or sit this week.

Kendall Wright- Kendall Wright’s best game of the year was last week with his 10 catches for 107 yards. Wright was slowly fading away in the Chicago Bears offense until this outburst. It may have to do with the matchup, and this week will be a similar position. Expect Darius Slay to cover Dontrelle Inman leaving Kendall Wright with the majority of the targets. Wright is definitely a flex option for this weeks fantasy playoffs.

Bears D/ST- The Chicago Bears defense scored double digits for the second week in a row. While that is an impressive feat, avoid the Bears D/ST against the Detroit Lions. Matthew Stafford is in a must-win situation to stay alive for the playoff hunt. Expect a high scoring game from the Lions passing attack, and look elsewhere for a defense this week.

Mitchell Trubisky- Mitchell Trubisky looked like the second overall pick last week posting 20 fantasy points against the Bengals. Trubisky completed 25 passes for  271 yards and one touchdown. Trubisky had one touchdown throwing as well as one rushing. Although Trubisky had a great performance, the Bears will continue to be a run dominant team. The matchup against the Detroit Lions bodes to be a tough week for Trubisky, leave him on the bench or waiver wire.

Tarik Cohen- Tarik Cohen was once again given a small workload but still scored 10 fantasy points nonetheless. Cohen continues to take advantage of his carries and receptions. This week should be no different. Cohen can score in the return game, rushing, or receiving. Start Cohen in the flex against the Lions this week.

Jordan Howard- Jordan Howard posted the best fantasy output of the week by a Chicago Bear. Howard’s 27 points came from his 147 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Howard ran for 125 yards in the first matchup against the Lions and will do the same this week. The Lions allow 116.3 yards per game rushing. Howard will see the workload to once again see 100 yards and a touchdown.
