Here are some of the Bears' fantasy football options this week:

QB Caleb Hanie, after a solid Week 12 fantasy performance, only threw for 133 yards and no TDs with three interceptions this past week. Hanie has no value but has also made the receivers irrelevant as fantasy options.

RB Matt Forté (MCL sprain) had an injection of platelet-rich plasma into his knee in the hopes of speeding his recovery. For fantasy owners, it's probably too late, as this procedure doesn't always work and Forté will not return until he's 100 percent. Don't count on him.

Look for the Bears to divide carries among Marion Barber and Kahlil Bell until Forté returns. Barber will start this week and be the primary ballcarrier. Look for Bell to be a change-of-pace back with a role in passing situations. Barber has fantasy value, but Bell does not right now. 

WR Johnny Knox managed to post serviceable numbers this past week (5-53-0 on eight targets) and despite all odds retains some fantasy value in larger leagues.

WR Earl Bennett (1-5-0 on four targets) is done as a fantasy receiver with a two game average of one catch for five yards, no TDs on four targets. Prior to that, he had a three-game run where he was the team's best WR with No. 2 fantasy numbers.
