4. Kyle Fuller

Last Year: 5 

Kyle Fuller has consistently been a top-five player for the Chicago Bears, and 2020 should not change. It is fair to note that 2018 may be the pick of his powers, and we can only hope that he can get back to that style of play. At the same time, Fuller regressed last season and was still a well above average cornerback in the NFL.

Even if he repeats 2019, he will have this kind of value on the defense. If we see him find a 2020 season not as good as 2018, but better than 2019, he is going to be back in All-Pro consideration.

This season, the Bears are going to rely on Fuller more than ever. They are shuffling safety for the second straight year, but across from him is a question mark. Kevin Toliver and Jaylon Johnson are the likely candidates, but it does mean that teams will be avoiding Fuller.

However, if Fuller gets caught sleeping, he can give up big plays that the team cannot afford this season. The Bears need to trust to leave him on an island and shift coverages to their other corners. This is a bigger task because Prince Amukamara did not need that help. This along, with the depth at quarterback, has pushed Fuller up to number four this year.
