Here's a look at the Vikings' fantasy forecast for the Week 10 contest against the Bears in Chicago:

You'll have to keep your eyes out Sunday morning for the status of WR Percy Harvin, who is dealing with recurring migraines and a tender ankle. But given the way he performed last week, with a career-best nine receptions and 126 yards, you'd have to be compelled to play him, even against a good Bears defense.

QB Brett Favre gave his jaded owners a reason to play him again last week with his own career-high numbers in passing yards, and he has a history of tearing up the Bears. Sans Harvin, it's a tough assignment. But he has a re-emerging Bernard Berrian and Visanthe Shiancoe to throw to either way, and the run game will keep the defense honest enough to open up the passing opportunities.

The Vikings' defense is a good option. The sacks came back last week with more blitzing, and the Bears' offensive line has been a sieve. No reason to bench the defense this week.
