Bears Offense Leaves Something to Be Desired

The 2019 NFL season is underway, and we’ve already had some surprising news. The Chicago Bears suffered a disappointing loss to the Packers last week and we can assume Chicago’s Super Bowl odds have dropped. You can take a look at the list of sites here to find out what their current odds look like. Again, the season has just started so take these odds with a grain of salt. Much can change over the next few months.

One area that needs to change is the Bears’ offense. After losing 10-3 in Week One, Head Coach Matt Nagy didn’t mince words: “Three points is ridiculous.”

After showing some growth in his sophomore season last year, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was awful, completing just 26-of-45 passes with one pick and no touchdowns. He was sacked five times.

Questions abound even more now about Trubisky’s ability to develop into a franchise quarterback. He managed to elevate his game to about average in 2018, but after some very questionable decision making in the season opener, there’s a sense of panic about this Bears team right out of the gate. At this stage, Trubisky is not even a recommended Fantasy backup QB. Maybe he’ll be a decent bye week play, but in standard formats, we’d ignore him.

Running back Mike Davis garnered only five carries for 19 yards, with six receptions. We’d add him to Fantasy teams for the time being until rookie David Montgomery begins to take over the job. There’s no doubt Davis has some skills (see video below), but ultimately he’s a journeyman at best, and he is unlikely to sustain value all year.

For his part, Montgomery carried the ball six times, but had just one reception (mind you, it was for a 27-yard gain). Expect him to see a much bigger workload in Week Two against Denver.

Don’t forget about Tarik Cohen, who has shown he can be dynamic force when given the ball. He had a solid day receiving, but did not attempt a single rush. What? The Bears need to work this dude into the running game for it to succeed.

All told, Chicago was held to 46 yards rushing on just 2.9 YPC. Yuck City.

Wide receiver Allen Robinson was the only Bear to put in a solid performance in Week One, racking up over 100 yards receiving, just the second time he’s done that with Chicago. The 13 targets he had tied him for third in the league for the week, another very promising sign.

As Chicago’s pass attack gets its act together, Robinson should be even more useful. For now, he’s a mid-range WR3 in Week Two.

RotoRob Tune of the Day

One-time psychedelic gods Pink Floyd released The Wall on November 30, 1979, leaving it just two months and change away from its 40th birthday. From this classic comes “One of My Turns,” which was the B-Side to the album’s first single “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2.”

Now it’s your turn. After peaking at 12-4 last year, how will the Bears do this season?

NFL Offseason Report: Quarterbacks

April 26, 2017 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off on NFL Offseason Report: Quarterbacks
Griffin has now made 12 starts in the last three years combined, and it’s telling in a league starving for good quarterback play that nobody has seen fit to roll the dice on RG3. That’ll change, of course, and he’ll probably end up in some 1A/1B situation with another fringe option… kinda like last year. Steer clear.

2014 RotoRob Football Awards

January 19, 2015 | by Josh Johnson | Comments (1)
Fantasy owners had to love the fact that his worst game came early (32 yards in Week Two) and was followed up by three straight games with an end zone visit. All MVPs need a “signature moment” — Gronk’s came in Week Eight against the Chicago Bears when he amassed 149 yards on nine catches en route to three touchdowns. Through Week 15, he may only have three 100-yard games but he also has scored 11 touchdowns, and we believe his consistency is the biggest reason he is deserving of this award. A five-catch, 68-yard day is a decent line for most tight ends — but that’s Gronk’s second-worst game of the season. All of 2014’s other Fantasy Stud of the Year candidates are not even definitively the best at their position and anyone trying to argue for a tight end other than Gronkowski in 2014 needs to be drug tested.

2014 RotoRob NFL Draft Kit: Tight End Rankings

July 28, 2014 | by Josh Johnson | Comments (2)
e must give him some credit for showing the football world that a tight end can be an impact player. If you roll back the clock back you will find he was the first real productive tight end. Ditka was force for the Chicago Bears as a rookie in 1961 when he scored 12 TDs and went over 1,000 yards receiving. His average yard per catch was staggering 19.2. “Iron Mike” was Rookie of the Year and he eventually went on to be the first tight end selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. While he never topped his rookie stats he was still a feared player throughout his career.
