We are heading into Week 11 of the 2021 NFL season, and following their bye week, the Chicago Bears face off against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. Looking at the Ravens from a fantasy football eye, they give up the following PPG (fantasy points per game) to these positions:

  • QB’s: 19.6 (12th most)
  • RB’s: 23.9 (14th most)
  • WR’s: 34.1 (24th most)
  • TE’s: 17.2 (3rd most)

Below are some recent performances from Chicago Bears players, as well as suggestions for how to use them in your fantasy football lineups this week. All point references are for PPR (points per reception) leagues.

What to expect from your Chicago Bears players in fantasy football in Week 11

Justin Fields:

  • Week 8 vs. SF: 19/27 (70.4%) for 127 passing yards. 1 TD / 1 INT. 10 rushes for 103 rushing yards and a rushing TD. 25.3 fantasy points. QB5 for the week.
  • Week 9 vs. PIT: 17/29 (58.6%) for 291 passing yards. 1 TD / 1 INT. 8 rushes for 45 yards. 18.14 fantasy points. QB10 for the week.
  • Combining Weeks 8 and 9: QB3 for fantasy football.

Justin Fields has really upped his game for fantasy football purposes the last two weeks against two decent defenses. The fact that he has been the third-best option for fantasy across these two weeks is a great sign after a slow fantasy start.

Individual signs of solid accuracy, rushing yards, and passing yards within these two games even further bumps in interest in Fields. My suggestion is to grab Fields for your fantasy football team and stash him. The Chicago Bears face Detroit in Week 12, so if he continues to go off in fantasy, Fields can be a great spot start against a defense giving up the fifth-most total yards per game. Both Patrick Mahomes (KC) and Kyler Murray (AZ) are on bye weeks next week too.

David Montgomery: 

  • Week 9 vs. PIT: 13 carries for 63 yards (4.8 yards per carry). 2 catches for 17 yards. 10 fantasy points.

David Montgomery came back from his knee injury and stepped right back into 15 touches (carries + catches), pushing rookie Khalil Herbert to the side. Before Montgomery’s injury, he was the RB11 for fantasy from weeks one through four. Expect Montgomery to have somewhere between 16-20 touches vs. Baltimore. David Montgomery is a weekly starter for your fantasy football teams.

Darnell Mooney: 

  • Week 8 vs. SF: 6 catches on 8 targets for 64 receiving yards. 12.4 fantasy points. WR30 for the week.
  • Week 9 vs. PIT. 3 catches on 6 targets for 41 receiving yards and a receiving TD. 1 carry for a 15 yard TD. 20.6 fantasy points. WR5 for the week.
  • Combining Weeks 8 and 9 Darnell Mooney was the WR9.

Darnell Mooney put up some solid fantasy points in his last two games. On the year, Mooney is also out-targeting WR teammate Allen Robinson 59-50 so far. The connection with Fields looks to be there and growing. For fantasy football, Darnell Mooney should not be one of your starting WR’s but if you play in a league with one or multiple FLEX (position where you can start an RB, WR or TE) spots then he can be considered to be plugged in there depending on your team makeup.

Cole Kmet: 

  • Ranging from 77-90% of the snaps the last three games.
  • 6 – 6 – 8 targets in his last three games.
  • Week 9 vs. PIT: 6 catches on 8 targets for 87 receiving yards. 14.7 fantasy points. TE5 for the week.

Cole Kmet looked great in his last game, which was evident as he finished as the fifth-best TE for fantasy on the week. Seeing eight looks from Fields was solid in general, but the fact that he is now extending the field a bit more is another good sign for the sophomore TE.

With the Ravens being a bottom three team against fantasy TE’s, Kmet is a viable streamer if you have Noah Fant (DEN)/Tyler Higbee (LAR) on bye, or have an average TE. This could be similar advice to Fields, which would be to pick him up and stash him for Detroit next week after we see if Kmet continues in the right direction. Zach Ertz (AZ) and Travis Kelce (KC) are also on bye next week.

Bears must build around these 8 players. dark. Next

Allen Robinson: 

Keeping this one simple – Allen Robinson cannot be trusted or played in fantasy football. Robinson has yet to score 11 fantasy points and is currently WR60 on the year for the position.
