The Chicago Bears are on the road in Miami in week 6 taking on the 3-2 Dolphins. Who should you start? Who should you sit? I am your Bears fantasy expert.
We have controversy surrounding the Chicago Bears backfield, and an injury in the receiving core. Read this before setting your fantasy lineup.
A complete offensive explosion for the Chicago Bears offense occurred in week four against the Bucs. Will this continue? Or did the bye week kill the momentum? One thing is for sure, the defense will be ready.
Allen Robinson: He has the best connection with Mitchell Trubisky and thats fantasy gold. Robinson only had two receptions against Tampa but one was a TD. The Dolphins gave up over 100 yards last week to AJ Green, I expect something similar from Robinson. Trubisky will lean on Robinson on the road in a tough game, and I believe he will find the end zone again. Definitely a WR2 or a flex starter.
Mitchell Trubisky: Coming off a bye expect to see even more new wrinkles in this exciting offensive game plan. Trubisky was magic week four, but he wont throw six TD’s this week. However, Mitchell will make plays with his feet, and he will take care of the football. He has a big day connecting with Robinson and rushes for a TD. Roll with him while he is hot, he is wearing the sleeve again! Definitely a QB1 starter.
Defense/Special Teams: No brainer. If you have them in your league… LUCKY YOU!
It is always easier who you think is going to have a big game, much harder to determine who is going to stink it up. Fantasy sit, don’t trust this guy to win you a game.
Trey Burton: This week he is the odd man out. Trubisky will rely on Robinson, and now has real faith in Taylor Gabriel. He will have a couple grabs like always but in the red zone look for targets to Robinson, Jordan Howard, and Tarik Cohen. There are a lot of good TE’s if he is your only guy he wont lose you the game, but he wont win you this weeks game either. Definitely a TE 2 or a PPR Flex option.
With Anthony Miller being injured, other Bears WR’s will continue to step up, also limiting Burton’s upside in week 6.
Play’em at your own Risk
Two players in one. I think we all saw this one coming for this week. This move could win or lose your game this week.
Jordan Howard/Tarik Cohen: The first three games it was clearly Howard’s job and Cohen was second fiddle. Week four changed the temperature in the room, Cohen had more carries, more yards, and was explosive. Cohen has the upside going into this week, but we have no idea what the usage will be for either until the game gets underway. My belief is that Cohen will see more playing time the next four weeks. But when the weather gets cold Howard will help carry this team to the playoffs. If you have better options I would sit both until we see how it plays out. That being said both of these guys are capable of having a BIG week. Howard is definitely a RB2 trending down. Cohen is definitely a Flex/PPR RB2 trending up.
Don’t trade low on Howard, and don’t overspend to get Cohen on your team right now. This could be a week by week fantasy trade off.
