Cutler threw for 300 yards and 2 TD with 2 INT in a losing effort against the Falcons last week in his fourth straight game with multiple TDs. He's a bona fide gunslinger and always a good starting option against the Bengals' 28th-ranked pass defense.
Forte's been a first-round bust. He's been over 100 yards once and into the end zone once. His 60 total yards against the Falcons (15 rushes for 23 yards and 5 receptions for 37 receiving yards) are a microcosm of his season. Cincy is tough against the run (11th in the league) and we could see more of the same from him.
Cutler has formed a promising connection with Knox, who caught his third TD of the year against the Falcons. The quarterback is using him like he did rookie Eddie Royal last year and he's a decent No. 3 option going forward.
Olsen got into the end zone again last week, catching 5 balls for 57 yards. He doesn't have the reception and yardage numbers that the elite TEs do, but he's a good option as he figures to be a primo target in the Red Zone.
Average game after average game (8 TD, 7 INT), Palmer's been Mr. Reliable this year. Against Houston, Palmer went 23-for-35 for 259 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT. Expect more of the same against the Bears.
Third in the league in rushing, Benson had a rough day against Houston, gaining 44 yards on 16 carries. On the bright side: He found the end zone again, his fourth rushing TD of the year. He's a good No. 1 option, even against the Bears sixth-ranked run D.
He's baa-aack ... ranking 10th in the league with 29 catches, Ochocinco broke the century mark last week for the first time against the Texans. He had 103 yards and continues to look like the Ochocinco of old (despite Palmer not looking like the Palmer of old). He's a legit No. 2 fantasy option against the 14th-ranked Bears pass defense.
The second-year WR out of Florida had 6 catches for 57 yards against the Texans. He's on pace for 64 catches, which isn't bad. He's still a low-level fantasy option. There are a number of guys like Caldwell on the waiver wire.
