Here are some of the Bears' fantasy football options this week:
QB Jay Cutler faces a Vikings defense that's allowing 294 yards and 1.2 TDs per game to opposing passers. His shaky offensive line makes him a bye-week or injury fill-in QB.
RB Matt Forté faces a Vikings "D" that's allowing 68 rushing yards and 0.8 rushing TDs per game to the position. However, you don't bench someone with a two-game average of 189.5 offensive yards and 0.5 TDs.
Despite returning to practice, WR Earl Bennett is not expected to see action until next week. Even then, he has missed too much time to make an immediate impact.
WR Johnny Knox has a horrible two-game average of three targets for 2.5 yards, 32.5 yards and no touchdowns in what continues to be a disappointing season for him. He's an injury or bye-week fill-in.
In odd weeks (Weeks One, Three and Five), TE Kellen Davis is averaging 3.3 targets for two receptions, 26.7 yards and 0.7 TDs. In even weeks, the averages drop to one target for 0-0-0. We're in Week Six — don't play him.
