What to expect against the spread (ATS)?

Tough schedule here and they will be listed as underdogs a lot - I like them to go 10-6 against the spread.

Things to watch for:

I’m telling you now, this is one of the toughest schedules out there this season. Aaron Rodgers twice, Minnesota defense twice, Tom Brady, Dream Team Rams, & Jimmy G. This defense that was ranked 9th in the league last year will have a tough time matching that production this year with the offenses that they are going to see.

Fantasy Outlook:

QB:

Mitch Trubisky - Not a QB1 or 2 for me this year. I know there’s a lot of hype around this guy but a just don’t see it. He’s not going to give you the production you need from a QB 1 or 2 based on the style of offense that the Bears run. As for the running backs doe…..

WR:

RB:

Jordan Howard - Top 15 - I like Jordan Howard as a top 15 guy this season. He finished 15th in total points for RBs last season and he didn’t play much in the season finale. This Bears offense is built around him and he is going to be the workhorse.


Tarik Cohen - Top 30 - He finished top 30 in scoring last year and I’m expecting a similar result this season.

TE:

Trey Burton - Top 20 - He will finally get the chance to be a starter and that will lead to the best year of his career. I still don’t think it will be enough to be your #1 TE though.

Up next:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
