Chicago Bears: 5 positives halfway through the season
By Joseph Herff
Kyle Fuller playing one of his best seasons
This season especially, Kyle Fuller has shown he is one of the top corners in all of the NFL. He was recognized in 2018 for his efforts by receiving All-Pro honors, but besides that, he has not been recognized.
Not only is Fuller outstanding in coverage, but this season, Fuller has shown how excellent he is as a hitter and tackler. Fuller isn’t afraid to lower his shoulder and layout players all over the field as we saw in the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This play changed the game completely as all the momentum shifted in the Bears’ favor and led to their huge win.
Compared to his 2018 season, in which he was All-Pro, Fuller is already outperforming that season. He has a lower completion percentage allowed (56.2% vs. 50.0%), similar passer rating allowed (63.7 vs. 64.2), and way fewer yards allowed (808 vs. 492 pace).
