Game Overview ::

By papy324 >>
  • This isn’t a great game environment for DFS but it does have high upside outcomes.
  • DJ Moore was criminally underused last week and should see some schemed targets.
  • Mike Evans looks like he can succeed with Baker Mayfield at QB.
  • Rachaad White saw elite usage for his price.

The Bears are fresh off a 38-20 loss at home to division rival GB who many were expecting to have a rebuilding year after Aaron Rodgers left town. Expectations for the Bears were sky-high after a strong preseason performance and the addition of new offensive weapons. Everyone might have confused Justin Fields’ fantasy football success with real-life football success, but yeah, what is the difference between those again? The Bears left many wanting more in their home opener, and a lot of questions are now being asked about the future of the organization. This is as close to a must win for a coaching staff as you can have in Week 2. 

Matt “Can I get a clue?” Eberflus returned because of Justin Fields “development” towards the end of the year. I say development sarcastically because I’m fairly certain that even the Bears coaching staff confused fantasy football glory with real life success. Did Justin Fields demonstrate he is incredibly talented as a runner? Absolutely. Did he show that he is an NFL talent as a passer? Never. Someone should give Eberflus a clue that yards count the same if you run or pass for them in the NFL. Rushing yards only count for more in our game. The Buccaneers defense was decidedly average in Week 1, with a mediocre showing against the run and pass. Eberflus is more of a “we do our thing” coach than an adaptable one anyway which makes him easier to predict (for us and opposing teams). The Bears had a pass run split of 37/29 (nine of those runs were by Fields), and in a game they lost by three scores. It looks like they still want to lean into the run and short passing game as much as possible. Expect the Bears to try and get the running game working, but expect them to be willing to go into a pass heavy “let Fields win or lose it” game plan if they fall behind.
