The Chicago Bears have the potential to explode this season offensively, and with averaging picks after the 5th round in mock drafts, they present a great opportunity for high-value picks to fill in spots on your fantasy roster.
Jay Cutler has a cannon for an arm, and with some refinement should be able to reduce the number of interceptions that frustrated his owners last season. His ability to launch the ball downfield to the Bears' talented group of young receivers gives him high upside potential this season.
Hester's speed has made headlines since he first entered the NFL with the Bears in 2006. He's developed in to a very capable route-runner, using his quickness to get open deep and make secondaries pay after the catch as well. At 5'11", he's not going to win too many jump balls, but with his speed he'll end up open often enough that it won't matter.
Word out of training camp is that his "burst is back," and if that's the case, he looks to hurt defenses for big gains this season. Mike Martz's aggressive offensive style should also open up the field and give him more room to run this year.
He's got the speed, he's got the moves, and he's the number 1 receiver on the Bears' depth chart. Anyone else remember a slim 6'0" tall receiver that put up big numbers in a Mike Martz offense? I do...
Mike Martz likes to spread things out and use talented players in creative ways, generating big plays and lots of points. Does this offense sound familiar to anyone? A quarterback who can get the ball deep, 2 receivers who are short but speedy, and a quick running back with a "burst." All the pieces are there for a huge season offensively from the Bears this year.
