185 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 2 INTJust as many were ready to read the eulogy on his career, Favre throws for a career-high 446 yards in a comeback win over Arizona. Favre has always been inconsistent, so it's tough to say just what he will do against a much better Bears defense.
3 rec, 30 rec yards, 70 rush yards, 2 rush TDThe Bears are allowing just 3.5 yards per rush this season. Then again, Peterson rushed for a combined 219 yard against the Jets and the Packers, so he can produce even against elite defenses. Keep Peterson in your starting lineup.
5 rec, 90 yardsEven on a bad ankle and without Randy Moss around to draw away coverage, Harvin recorded a season-high 126 yard receiving. On paper he still looks like a bad play this week, but he did last week too. Be sure to double check his playing status.
3 rec, 25 yardsBerrian recorded a season-high 89 yards on nine receptions last week. With Randy Moss gone, Berrian should continue to see more passes his way, but don't expect Brett Favre to throw for 446 yards every week.
3 rec, 40 yards, 1 TDShiancoe found the end zone for the first time since Week 1 on his way to 66 yards on four catches. The departure of Randy Moss should open up targets in the red zone for Shiancoe, at least until Sidney Rice is back to full strength.
3 PATs, 1 FGWith just eight field goal attempts, Longwell has been the least productive kicker to start every game for his team this season. There is no obvious reason for his lack fantasy impact, kicker just happens to be a very difficult position to project.
5 sacks, 2 INT, 2 FumblesThe Bears have looked pedestrian on offense despite a gauntlet of soft defensive matchups -- they played Carolina, Seattle, Washington and Buffalo in consecutive weeks. Minnesota should have a solid outing after allowing just 225 yards to Arizona.
150 pass yards, 1 pass TD, 2 INTCutler has been inconsistent to say the least, and a 188-yard passing performance against a lowly Bills secondary doesn't inspire confidence. The Vikings present a much tougher matchup, so play Cutler at your own risk.
3 rec, 25 rec yards, 1 rec TD, 45 rush yardsForte's 49-yard rushing performance against the league's worst rush defense was a major disappointment. Now that Chester Taylor has officially taken over as the team's goal-line back, Forte is only worth targeting in PPR leagues.
2 rec, 10 rec yards, 20 rush yards, 1 rush TDTaylor should continue to earn goal-line carries going forward. His fantasy impact is still small, however, except to leech touchdowns away from Matt Forte owners.
4 rec, 60 yardsKnox has been hurt by Jay Cutler's struggles, but he is still the clear No. 1 wideout in Chicago. His skillset makes him a boom-or-bust option most weeks, however, and he has found the end zone just once this season.
3 rec, 45 yardsBennett has been a consistent source of receptions lately, enough so that he is worth consideration in deep PPR leagues. With Devin Hester's role looking much diminished, Bennett could have some upside over the second half of the season.
2 rec, 15 yardsOlsen is still a highly inconsistent option to have to rely on. With one more slate of bye weeks to go, he is still worth consideration. Just be sure to demote him at week's end.
2 PATs, 2 FGsWith 12 field goals made this season, Gould ranks firmly in the middle of the pack among fantasy kickers. If the Bears continue to struggle offensively, Gould's prospects for the second half of the season would take a big hit.
2 sacks, 2 INTThe Bears' defense has had to carry a struggling offense in recent weeks. They are second in the league with 20 turnovers forced and are allowing just 3.5 yards per rush. Still, the Vikings have enough weapons offensively to make Chicago a risky play.
