Chicago Bears
vs
New Orleans Saints
Soldier Field | Sunday, Oct. 06 | 1 PM EST (FOX)

New Orleans Saints

    1. Drew Brees
    2. Drew
      Brees
      QB
    3. PASS YDS410
    4. PASS TD3
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Going up against a strong Miami defense, Brees threw for 413 yards, four TDs and zero interceptions. He should have a field day against the Bears.

    1. Darren Sproles
    2. Darren
      Sproles
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS18
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS88
    6. REC TD1

    Sproles was a beast as a receiver and not too shabby as a runner against the Dolphins. He should be able to replicate his success this week.

    1. Pierre Thomas
    2. Pierre
      Thomas
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS29
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS10
    6. REC TD0

    Thomas got just four carries last week and didn't do much with them. He could be on the outs in New Orleans.

    1. Marques Colston
    2. Marques
      Colston
      WR
    3. REC YDS97
    4. REC TD1

    Colston had seven catches for 96 yards last week and should be able to find success against a Bears team that has really struggled against the pass.

    1. Kenny Stills
    2. Kenny
      Stills
      WR
    3. REC YDS27
    4. REC TD0

    Stills had six targets last week, but he still isn't producing at a level that justifies rostering him.

    1. Jimmy Graham
    2. Jimmy
      Graham
      TE
    3. REC YDS113
    4. REC TD1

    Another 100-yard effort and another two TDs. He's in a world of his own.

    1. Garrett Hartley
    2. Garrett
      Hartley
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG1

    Hartley made one of his two field goal attempts last week. The Bears defense has done a good job in the red zone, which could mean big things for him this week.

    1. New Orleans Saints
    2. PTS ALLOWED27
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    I don't love this matchup for the Saints, but if you own them you're starting them.

Chicago Bears

    1. Jay Cutler
    2. Jay
      Cutler
      QB
    3. PASS YDS287
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT2
    6. RUSH YDS15
    7. RUSH TD0

    He showed some of his sloppy mechanics last week, though he did finish with 317 yards and two TDs. This isn't a great matchup for him.

    1. Matt Forte
    2. Matt
      Forte
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS94
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS56
    6. REC TD0

    Forte ran for 95 yards and a TD on just 14 carries and caught another four passes for 22 yards. He's a top-five running back.

    1. Brandon Marshall
    2. Brandon
      Marshall
      WR
    3. REC YDS99
    4. REC TD1

    Marshall got 14 targets last week, catching seven of them for 79 yards. He'll get back on his superstar track this week.

    1. Alshon Jeffery
    2. Alshon
      Jeffery
      WR
    3. REC YDS68
    4. REC TD1

    Jeffery busted out last week, catching five passes for 107 yards and a score. He looks like a reliable WR3 at worst for the rest of the season.

    1. Martellus Bennett
    2. Martellus
      Bennett
      TE
    3. REC YDS42
    4. REC TD0

    Bennett caught eight of his 12 targets for 90 yards last week. If the Bears fall behind by much, they'll air it out again, but ths matchup could be problematic for Bennett.

    1. Robbie Gould
    2. Robbie
      Gould
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG2

    Gould made all three of his field goal attempts last week and is a perfect 7-for-7 on the year. The way the Saints defense has been playing, he should get some more opportunites this weekend.

    1. Chicago Bears
    2. PTS ALLOWED24
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Bears forced three more turnovers last week, but they were absolutely dominated by the Lions. It won't be any easier this week.
