Chicago Bears

    1. Josh McCown
    2. Josh
      McCown
      QB
    3. PASS YDS241
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS23
    7. RUSH TD0

    Josh McCown played well in relief of Jay Cutler two weeks ago, throwing for 204 yards and a TD against the Redskins. He could be a QB2 this week.

    1. Matt Forte
    2. Matt
      Forte
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS72
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS35
    6. REC TD0

    The Packers have been tough on opposing running backs this year, but Forte's role in Chicago's offense should translate to a nice game on Monday.

    1. Brandon Marshall
    2. Brandon
      Marshall
      WR
    3. REC YDS63
    4. REC TD1

    Marshall has been quiet at times this year, but he should still be trusted as a starter every single week.

    1. Alshon Jeffery
    2. Alshon
      Jeffery
      WR
    3. REC YDS86
    4. REC TD0

    Jeffery is enjoying a breakout season in his second year in the league. Even with Josh McCown starting, feel free to play him as you normally would.

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

    The Packers have allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to tight ends. Start him as usual.

    1. Robbie Gould
    2. Robbie
      Gould
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG2

    Gould has been reliable as always this year, making 12 of his 13 field-goal attempts.

    1. Chicago Bears
    2. PTS ALLOWED45
    3. SACKS0
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    This Bears defense has been terrible all season, and now Lance Briggs is out for 4-6 weeks. You can drop them.

Green Bay Packers

    1. Aaron Rodgers
    2. Aaron
      Rodgers
      QB
    3. PASS YDS384
    4. PASS TD4
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Rodgers had a nearly flawless game last week, completing 24-of-29 passes for 298 yards and two TDs. The Bears have allowed 8.7 YPA and 11 passing touchdowns this season, so expect Rodgers to take advantage.

    1. Eddie Lacy
    2. Eddie
      Lacy
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS113
    4. RUSH TD2
    5. REC YDS15
    6. REC TD0

    Lacy has brought the second dimension this offense has been lacking for years. He should be started regardless of matchup.

    1. Jordy Nelson
    2. Jordy
      Nelson
      WR
    3. REC YDS137
    4. REC TD2

    Nelson had another monster game last week, catching seven passes for 123 yards and two TDs. He should be able to take advantage of the Bears' defense.

    1. Jarrett Boykin
    2. Jarrett
      Boykin
      WR
    3. REC YDS105
    4. REC TD1

    Boykin had five catches for 89 yards last week and should be started against a Chicago defense that has allowed 8.7 YPA and 11 passing touchdowns this season.

    1. James Jones
    2. James
      Jones
      WR
    3. REC YDS74
    4. REC TD1

    Jones has a good chance to return from a knee injury this week. With the Packers playing late in the week, you might want to look elsewhere.

    1. Andrew Quarless
    2. Andrew
      Quarless
      TE
    3. REC YDS46
    4. REC TD0

    Quarless caught just two passes for 13 yards last week. He's not worth a start this week, even though Chicago's defense has struggled all year.

    1. Mason Crosby
    2. Mason
      Crosby
      K
    3. PAT6
    4. FG1

    Crosby went 3-for-3 on field goals last week and is now 17-for-19 on the season.

    1. Green Bay Packers
    2. PTS ALLOWED20
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Packers held Christian Ponder to 145 yards, though the Minnesota run game was able to find success. You can stream them against an undermanned Chicago team this week.
