Here are some of the Bears' fantasy football options this week:
QB Caleb Hanie continued his regression with 115 passing yards, no TDs and no interceptions last week. As we've said the past two weeks, his play gives the Bears' receivers no fantasy value.
QB Jay Cutler said there's an outside chance he can play on Christmas night in Week 16. While it wouldn't give much value to Cutler, it would give an immediate lift to the receivers, specifically Earl Bennett.
RB Matt Forté (knee) did not play, as expected, is out this week and probably is done for fantasy owners the rest of the way. However, don't waive him yet in the hopes that he can return.
RB Marion Barber had a great fantasy day but a horrible NFL day, costing the team a victory. However, he could lose a few touches to Kahlil Bell; he's still going to remain the primary workhorse back until Forté returns.
RB Kahlil Bell saw enough touches to tease with 14 utilizations for 64 yards, including 24 receiving yards. He's a long-shot fantasy play but the Seahawks are allowing 54.8 receiving yards and 0.3 TDs per game to opposing RBs the past four weeks.
