Soldier Field | Monday, September 27 | 8:30 p.m. EST (ESPN)
Pick: Packers 34, Bears 17
275 pass yards, 3 pass TDRodgers has not gotten off to a blazing start this season and had only one total touchdown in two games against the Bears last season, but he will break out in prime time this week against a Bears' defense that is vulnerable to the pass.
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 40 rush yards, 1 rush TDJackson has a tough matchup this week against a Bears team that is leading the league in run defense through two weeks, so it is probably best to go in another direction in Week 3 if possible.
6 rec, 85 yards, 1 TDJennings has scored four touchdowns in seven games against the Bears in his career, including the game-winning touchdown in Week 1 a year ago. Start him with confidence this week.
5 rec, 80 yardsDriver has found the end zone in each of the first two weeks, but he has scored just twice in 18 career games against the Bears. Still, he remains a viable option given the Packers' ability to move the ball through the air.
3 rec, 45 yards, 1 TDJones was targeted seven times in Week 2 and found the end zone, which makes him a sneaky third receiver option this week against the Bears.
4 rec, 45 yards, 1 TDFinley showed what he was capable of in Week 2 by racking up over 100 yards on only four catches. He remains a top tight end option in all formats.
4 PATs, 2 FGsCrosby is a strong Week 3 option given his ability to hit long field goals and the potential for a shootout at Soldier Field.
2 sacks, 1 INTGreen Bay's defense is off to a good start, but they will be tested in Week 3 against an improved Bears offense. However, keep in mind Jay Cutler threw six interceptions in two games against Green Bay last season.
245 pass yards, 2 pass TD, 1 INTCutler has played very well early this season; and though he threw six interceptions in two games against the Packers last season, he should be able to take advantage of their inexperienced secondary in Week 3.
4 rec, 50 rec yards, 1 rec TD, 55 rush yardsThe Packers are very strong against the run, and Forte is averaging just 2.9 YPC this season. Still, he remains a viable fantasy option given his early-season production in the passing game.
2 rec, 10 rec yards, 20 rush yardsTaylor has just 18 total touches in two games, so go in a different direction this week.
5 rec, 60 yards, 1 TDKnox averaged over 80 yards per game against the Packers a year ago, so he's worth a start this week.
4 rec, 50 yardsHester has only caught seven total passes in seven games against the Packers in his career, so it's best to look elsewhere despite his strong Week 2 effort.
4 rec, 45 yardsAromashodu was held without a catch in Week 2 after a big Week 1 performance. Still, he could be a useful option this week because the Packers' reserve corners are inexperienced.
3 rec, 30 yardsThe Packers have shut down the opposing tight end in each of their first two games.
2 PATs, 1 FGGould's fantasy value has risen due to the early success of the Bears offense. He is a useful option most weeks, including this one.
3 sacks, 1 FumbleThe Bears are leading the league in run defense, but they have not been very good against the pass. Considering the strength of the Packers' passing attack, they are not a very strong option this week.
