With a week of rest behind them Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jerseys Stitched , the Chicago Bears will be returning to action on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. game winning streak, and while one may argue that the timing of their week off could hinder their momentum, their schedule for the next month have multiple easily winnable games.So far this year, Chicago’s defense has developed into one of the best units in the league. The offense, while not as dominant, has flashed signs of what it could become. As we enter the first game after their bye week, let’s take a look at a few storylines that bears fans should keep an eye on for the remainder of the year.Is Mitchell Trubisky for real?Mitchell Trubisky finally had his breakout game in Week 4 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With a 73.1 completion percentage, 354 passing yards, six touchdowns, no interceptions and 53 rushing yards on three attempts to boot, Trubisky looked the part of a franchise quarterback.After what was easily the best performance of his young career, the signal caller must prove that his outing against the Buccaneers was not just a flash in the pan. Prior to said game, Trubisky’s footwork was sloppy. His decision making was often limited to just one read. His confidence was lacking. That said, he is going to need more than one game to prove that he can carry the Bears to the playoffs.Chicago has more talent on their roster than they have had in years. While still early in the year, their defense has played the best it has since the days of Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman. A lot of their offensive success, though, has yet to be unleashed. If Trubisky can prove that he is the real deal, then the Bears could very realistically stay atop the NFC North. Can Jordan Howard turn things around?For his first two seasons, Jordan Howard was a true force to be reckoned with in the ground game. After consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, many expected the running back to carry on his momentum into 2018. So far, though, that has yet to be the case.Howard has 203 rushing yards on 64 carries through four games: an average of merely 3.2 yards per carry. His ability to evade tacklers has been subpar as of late. He has struggled running outside of the tackles, and his ability to hit the hole as a downhill runner hasn’t been as good as he has shown in past seasons. Granted, the Bears haven’t done a great job of making sure that he succeeds. As friend of Windy City Gridiron Johnathan Wood recently pointed out, Howard has seen 30 percent of his runs come against an eight-man front, nearly identical to his 31 percent against a six-man front. In addition to Chicago’s inability to give him favorable situations in which he can run the ball Youth Eric Kush Jerseys , their offensive line has not been able to consistently open up holes for him.Howard entered the 2018 season as arguably the best proven talent on the Bears’ offense. If he can return back to old form - and if his surroundings allow him to do so - then they could become a much more dangerous unit.Are the Bears a Super Bowl contender?At 3-1, the Bears have one of the best records in the NFL. Their only loss came at the hands of Aaron Rodgers in a game that saw both Khalil Mack and Roquan Smith see limited playing time. All things considered, there are few teams who have had a better start to the regular season than the Bears.But will they be able to keep that up?Chicago still has the bulk of their divisional schedule left to go. Although none of the teams in the NFC North have been stellar to start the year, none of them can be considered pushovers, especially this early in the season. They also have the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots left on their schedule, which will undoubtedly serve as tough matchups for them down the line.The Bears have done a very good job to kick off the 2018 season. They’ve been able to pick up wins against rather lackluster competition, and they have made big plays on both sides of the ball. If they can keep up this level of play throughout the year, then they could make some noise in an NFC conference that is full of surprises early on in the year. With week 10 of the Fantasy Football season looming large on the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about the future. The Playoffs are just a few weeks away in most leagues (generally weeks 14-16), so to get a jump on your less forward thinking opponents, you should start preparing in earnest, NOW (if you haven’t already). With that in mind, let’s take a look at steps you can take to shore up your roster for the post season.1. Start looking at schedules.Check out your players’ match ups in weeks 14-16. Obviously guys like Todd Gurley and Pat Mahomes are essentially match up proof starts, but the bulk of your team isn’t going to be made up of fantasy studs. So schedule matters. Let’s go through some of the players at each position who have positive match ups during the playoffs:QuarterbackPhilip Rivers (Cin/KC/Bal)Ben Roethlisberger (Oak/NE/NO)Joe Flacco/Lamar Jackson (KC/TB/LAC)Case Keenum (SF/Cle/Oak)Cam Newton (Cle/NO/Atl)Dak Prescott (Phi/Ind/TB)Drew Brees (TB/Car/Pit)Russell Wilson (Min/SF/KC)Derek Carr (Pit/Cin/Den)Running BackJoe Mixon (LAC/Oak/Cle)Chris Carson (Min/SF/KC)Melvin Gordon (Cin/KC/Bal)Kerryon Johnson (Ari/Buf/Min)Sony Michel (Mia/Pit/Buf)Phillip Lindsay (SF/Cle/Oak)David Johnson (Det/Atl/LAR)Christian McCaffrey (Cle/No/Atl)Dalvin Cook (Sea/Mia/Det)Wide ReceiversMichael Thomas (TB/Car/Pit)Amari Cooper (Phi/Ind/TB)Davante Adams (Atl/Chi/NYJ)DeAndre Hopkins (Ind/NYJ/Phi)Antonio Brown (Oak/NE/NO)Emmanuel Sanders (SF/Cle/Oak)Devin Funchess (Cle/NO/Atl)Keenan Allen (Cin/KC/Bal)John Brown (KC/TB/LAC)Tight EndsI’m not even going to bother, because outside of Ertz, Kelce and maybe Kittle, Tight Ends are just random at this point lol. Just slap whatever you got in there and hope for the best.DefenseWashington (NYG/Jax/Ten)Denver (SF/Cle/Oak)Buffalo (NYJ/Det/NE)Tennessee (Jax/NYG/Was)If your league still has kickers, then may god have mercy on your soul. I’m not going to touch them.2. Work the wire.Now, a lot of the players on that list aren’t going to be available, but there are some moves you can make to shore yourself up for the post season. If you’re streaming Qbs (or have a guy with a particularly tough playoff schedule), then take a look and see if Keenum, Dak or Flacco are available. They are all owned in 30% or less of leagues, so there’s a solid chance they are out there. If you’re the gambling type, a Lamar Jackson stash could pay big dividends if Flacco is benched late in the season.Running Backs are a little more tricky where the waiver wire is concerned. There is such positional scarcity, that pretty much any back with a chance of sniffing the ball more than 5 times a game is likely owned. But, there are options worth looking at. Gio Bernard is only owned in around 25% of leagues, and could have some production in the playoffs, as well as being a good handcuff for Mixon. Same goes for Mike Davis in Seattle Eric Kush Jerseys Stitched , who’s owned in about 35% of leagues. Denver’s Royce Freeman is owned in about 55% of leagues, but in the off-chance he’s out there, he’s certainly worth snagging as well. Also, I know Philly doesn’t have a particularly easy playoff schedule, but Josh Adams is worth a stash as he looks to be in for a heavier workload moving forward (plus Sproles re-aggravated his hammy injury yesterday, so once less mouth to feed).Receivers are a bit easier to deal with, but the pickings are still going to be somewhat slim on the waiver wire. Dez Bryant is probably worth a stash,having just singed with the Saints (could be in for some red zone work in that offense) (Dez just went down in practice, and may have ruptured his achilles, so never mind). Gallup and Hurns could also see an increase in production in Dallas, with defenses focusing on Cooper. They’re both owned in less than 10% of leagues. Keke Coutee is owned in about 20% of leagues, but could be in for some solid work with Houston’s playoff schedule, plus he has the second highest separation average in the NFL (the distance he gets from defenders), and operates as Watson’s primary safety valve out of the slot when healthy. Lastly, if Marquez Valdes-Scantling is still somehow available in your league, grab him NOW. Same goes for Courtland Sutton and DJ Moore, though to a somewhat lesser extent鈥?and the Williams brothers (Tyrell and Mike) in LA are worth a look as boom or bust options if available as well.3. Make a deal.If your trade deadline still hasn’t passed (many are set for this weekend or shortly there after), then there’s still time to try and make some deals. If you have a player or two on your squad that has a negative playoff schedule, then maybe try and swing a trade for some players on the list above. Obviously guys like Mixon, Gordon and CMC are going to be tough to get, but Carson, Kerryon, DJ and Dalvin Cook could likely be had at a decent price. Do you have AP or Aaron Jones? See if you can swap them for Carson or Kerryon. Do you have Marlon Mack or Nick Chubb? See if you can trade for Dalvin Cook or Sony Michel. Maybe throw in a spare WR2 to sweeten the deal. Don’t sell the farm, but if you can make a swap for a player on this list for a guy with a similar value, then do so.Also don’t be afraid to go after secondary options on the teams listed. Guys like Juju, Royce Freeman, Tre’Quan Smith, Courtland Sutton Youth Allen Robinson Jerseys , MVS etc. Again, don’t over spend, but do try and collect players with positive match ups in weeks 14-16 if you can.Of course, if your team has a losing record, then you need to be concentrating on winning now, rather than worrying about the future. In which case, see if you can swing some deals with better teams to give up your players with good playoff match ups, in exchange for upgrades that will help you actually get into the playoffs. After all, you can’t win if you don’t get in.4. Grab a cuff.Carrying a hand-cuff early in the season is a mistake. It limits your bench space, and hurts your ability to improve your team through the waiver wire. Now, is the time to start grabbing your cuffs. If you have Todd Gurley, snag Malcom Brown. Got Joe Mixon, sign Gio Bernard. Have Chris Carson, go get Mike Davis (if he’s available). David Johnson > Chase Edmonds. McCaffrey > CJ Anderson. Kareem Hunt > Spencer Ware etc. Concentrate on guys who have a sure fire backup who will take over the feature back role, and stay away from teams that will turn to a committee in the event of an injury. If you grab them now, then you wont have to battle it out on the waiver wire for them if the unfortunate were to happen.In short, get your team prepared for the playoffs now.If you wait until week 13, it’ll be too late.That will do it for this week’s WCG Fantasy Football Forum! I hope it was helpful, and as always, post any lineup or trade questions in the comments. This is your place to talk Fantasy Football. Jeff should be back next week, as I’m sure most of you will be pleased to hear, so things will get back to normal. Anyway, good luck this week, and Bear Down everyone!WhiskeyRanger is a freelance graphic artist/content creator, an avid Bears fan, and apparently speaks in the 3rd person now.
