Here's a look at the Bears' top fantasy football options for Sunday's game against the Saints.
The Saints allowed 296 passing yards and three touchdowns to the Packers last week. QB Jay Cutler completed 22-of-32 passes for 312 yards and two touchdowns. He's a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in what could be shootout.
RB Marion Barber (calf) was limited in practice again and is expected to miss Week Two. Look for Matt Forté to carry the load, setting himself up for another monster week.
WR Roy Williams (groin) has yet to practice and if he doesn't, Johnny Knox will see more time on the field. Knox is a solid start, as the Saints gave up 20 receptions, for 243 yards and three touchdowns.
Despite all the negative talk regarding Roy Williams, in Week One he led the Bears' wide receivers with four receptions — for 55 yards. He is part of the offense but until he shows more as a No. 1 bench him.
