Chicago Bears Top Options
The Chicago Bears have some intriguing options for your fantasy football teams in 2020. There is one player that you should be targeting early and a few others that have upside. That upside however depends on what quarterback will start for the Bears. If it’s Mitch Trubisky, I would say only that one player will have any impact on your fantasy team this year. If it’s Nick Foles, then the rest of the team should see an uptick in their numbers with his ability to spread the ball around a little bit more.
That one player I was speaking about earlier is clearly wide receiver Allen Robinson. He is super talented and will continue to be the man in Chicago on the offensive side of the ball. He should be the one Bears offensive player to target early in your fantasy drafts. Especially in points per reception leagues because of his 98 receptions last year. With more consistency at the quarterback and offensive line positions, Robinson could even top those numbers next year. For that reason alone, I have Allen Robinson as my tenth overall wide receiver in the NFL.
Break Out Player
The Chicago Bears break out player will be running back David Montgomery. Only if head coach Matt Nagy decides to use him in the correct way and not shy away from the run game. However, his hands are top notch for the running back position. And he needs to be thrown to at least five to ten times a game where he can use his two best qualities in his hands and his ability to break tackles in the open field. If used correctly, Montgomery will be running back 15 for the upcoming season.
Former second round pick Anthony Miller has shown that he belongs in this league. Having said that, he also has not shown the ability to stay healthy for an entire season. The Bears offense will be a whole lot better if he does in fact stay on the field every single game. With his big game potential, I would have Anthony Miller as my wide receiver 30 going into the 2020 season.
When it comes to Fantasy Football drafts, everyone has different rules that they go by. I for one like to stay clear from drafting Bear players on my fantasy team. Mainly because I like to keep fantasy and my favorite team separated. For instance, when Allen Robinson scores a touchdown instead of Montgomery, I don’t get mad because I have Montgomery. That should make me happy regardless of who scored and that’s why I do it that way. The Chicago Bears and their players have a lot to prove this year which normally makes for better fantasy production.
