Here are some of the Bears' fantasy football options this week:
RB Matt Forté could post monster numbers this week. His last four games against the Lions, he has averaged 21 touches for 144 offensive yards and 0.75 TDs.
RB Marion Barber keeps adding to his totals with another TD making it three consecutive games and four in the last five. He's an every-week flex play in some leagues, but boom or bust without the TD.
WR Roy Williams has a three-game average of 3.3 catches for 51.7 yards and 0.3 TDs on five targets. He's establishing himself as the No. 1 WR and should be on a fantasy watch list in larger leagues.
WR Earl Bennett returned from a chest injury and had a team-high five catches for 95 yards and a TD on five targets. He's dependable as long as Jay Cutler's healthy, and is an injury fill-in this week.
WR Devin Hester (ankle) has yet to practice this week but the team says it expects to see him on the field. Hester has minimal value as is and if he's less than 100 percent, he isn't playable.
