Why NFL Fantasy Guide?

WE ARE SORRY: Due to the overwhelming time it takes to keep up with Fantasy Stats, I am no longer creating up to date draft lists and such on this blog.

However, I would like to remind you that the articles are for the most part still good advice to keep to heart when playing Fantasy Football.

Often in the preseason, there are questions about players. Injuries, position battles and anything that might effect the Fantasy Football Player Rankings. Here I will address some of them.

Chicago Bears Fantasy Players

Quarterback - Jake Cutler - (Position Rank - 7)
(Passing) 3,800 Yards, 22 TD, 19 IT, 16 Sacks
(Rushing) 200 Yards, 2 TD, 3 Fumbles
2008 turned Cutler into a star. Then he screwed that up and demanded a trade and ended up in Chicago. No knock on the Bears here, but they do not have a top receiver on their roster. Still, as good as Forte seems to be, he will draw a lot of defenses in, opening up some free space for speedy receiver, Devin Hester.

Running Back - Matt Forte - (Position Rank - 3)
(Rushing) 1,250 Yards, 9 TD, 1 Fumbles
(Receiving) 60 Catches, 450 Yards, 4 TD
It wasn't Forte's running that surprised me last year, but it was how well he did in the passing game. When you have a running back who will catch 60+ passes and run for over a thousand, you have a reason to be happy. The addition of Cutler could open up a little room for Forte if the young quarterback can find a solid connection with Hester.

Wide Receiver - Devin Hester - (Position Rank - 53)
(Receiving) 65 Catches, 800 Yards, 5 TD, 2 Fumble
One of the best return men in football, Hester was converted into a receiver. Last year he spent so much effort on his receiving game that his return game suffered. With Cutlers strong arm, Hester has the speed to take advantage of it.

Wide Receiver - Earl Bennett - (Position Rank - 68)
(Receiving) 40 Catches, 550 Yards, 3 TD, 0 Fumbles
Bennett has yet to catch a pass in a regular season game. I am ranking him this high strictly on the belief that Hester and Forte along with the tight ends will draw enough attention that Bennett will find himself open.

Tight End - Greg Olsen - (Position Rank - 9)
(Receiving) 65 Catches, 650 Yards, 6 TD, 1 Fumbles
If Desmond Clark was not around, Olsen would be a top 5 tight end.

Tight End - Desmond Clark - (Position Rank - 23)
(Receiving) 40 Catches, 350 Yards, 2 TD, 0 Fumbles
Clark is a part of the best Tight End tandem in the NFL. Unfortunately, he is the lesser part of that tandem.
