Don't let the Chicago defense, which is ranked No. 1 overall, dictate every facet of your fantasy plan. If the Bears are vulnerable anywhere, it's against the running game, especially since safety Mike Brown went down with a season-ending injury in Week 6. The weakness was demonstrated recently by poor showings against Frank Gore (111 rushing yards), Ronnie Brown (157) and Tiki Barber (141). Those are the kinds of numbers the lowly Raiders allow, and they're ranked 27th in rush defense. But even when Chicago has been a leaky sieve against the run, it still has had a consistent goal-line defense; none of those three rushers reached the end zone. But Giants bruiser Brandon Jacobs did--twice--and Dillon is similarly physical. He doesn't rack up a lot of yards (he averages just 51.0 per game), but he's punishing near the goal line, where he has four one-yard plunges and seven TDs overall.
