The Chicago Bears have plenty of talent but will need some new faces to step up in 2020. Here are three who have that type of potential.
The Chicago Bears will need more than just its All-Stars to step up this season. The team cannot only rely on Khalil Mack, Akiem Hicks, Eddie Jackson and Allen Robinson if it plans on making a playoff run or hopefully even better — a Super Bowl run. Instead, the team will need someone or multiple someones to step up or maybe even break out.
The team has plenty of fringe guys who contribute at times but to make this team even more special, we need some breakout players. Kyle Fuller had a breakout year in 2018 when he snagged a league-leading seven interceptions to go with a league-leading 21 pass deflections. This is the type of breakout year I am talking about. There are no questions as to why the team finished 12-4 that season.
Looking at the team, I think it is fairly obvious the Chicago Bears need more playmakers on offense. If the offense was even in the middle of the pack in 2019, the team would have made the playoffs once again. Unfortunately, the team took a step back from 20th in offensive DVOA in 2018 to 25th in 2019.
If one of these three offensive players breaks out in 2020, this team is going to compete for the NFC North crown. If two of these players break out in 2020, watch out NFL as the Chicago Bears are a serious playoff contender. If all three breaks out in 2020 than I hope you put early money on the Bears winning the Super Bowl.
