Projected Win Total

The Bears’ over/under currently sits at 9.5, after they went 12-4 last season. Chicago’s talent essentially looks the same as last season, but the rest of the NFC North will be much tougher than last season. The drop in projected win total is in response to this.


Strength of Schedule

SOS is measured by calculating the fantasy points allowed by each team’s opponents to determine who has the easiest and most difficult fantasy schedules (rank #1 has the easiest schedule).

QB: 11th
RB: 9th
WR: 11th
TE: 16th


Passing Game

QB: Mitchell Trubisky, Chase Daniel
WR: Allen Robinson, Cordarrelle Patterson
WR: Anthony Miller, Riley Ridley
WR: Taylor Gabriel, Emanuel Hall
TE: Trey Burton, Adam Shaheen

The Bears passing attack, led by Mitchell Trubisky, isn’t very dangerous. However, Matt Nagy will get the most out of his players. Trubisky is going as QB18, with not much upside due to their commitment to the run. Allen Robinson finished as the Bears’ top receiver last season, at WR40. Taylor Gabriel was just behind, at WR41. They are currently going as WR31 and 84, respectively. Second-year receiver Anthony Miller showed flashes of potential last season, which has him at an ADP of WR55. Trey Burton finished as TE8 last season, but is going as TE13 late in drafts.


Running Game

RB: David Montgomery, Tarik Cohen, Mike Davis
2018 OL Run Rank: 28th

Despite having a bottom-five offensive line, the Bears committed to the run, rushing for the sixth-most times last season. There are 261 carries up for grabs, and rookie David Montgomery comes in and is expected to fill the lead back role. Currently going as RB24, Montgomery should get a large share of the early down work. Change-of-pace back Tarik Cohen will also do plenty of damage in space for Chicago. Cohen is going as RB26, after finishing as RB11 last season. He attempted just 99 rushes last season, and while his role won’t change much, the rushing attempts will likely increase a little.
