Fantasy Football Impact Of The Chicago Bears In 2012
Welcome to BetDSI Sportsbook Fantasy Football Impact where we are going down the list of NFL teams in alphabetical order to check out the Fantasy Football impact each team will have in the upcoming season. Now we will have a look at the 2012 Chicago Bears.
The Chicago Bears made a huge off-season pick up when they acquired WR Brandon Marshall from the Dolphins in a trade for peanuts. Marshall made 81 receptions for 1214 yards and a 6 touchdowns last season and is expected to have a much better year being re-united with QB Jay Cutler.
Jay Cutler was having a good year before getting injured, in ten games he had a 58% completion rate, threw for 2,318 yards, and 13 scores without a clear receiving threat. His numbers could inflate majorly with the addition of Marshall, both had the best seasons of their careers together in Denver.
No Chicago Bears player was more effective before injury than runningback Matt Forte who seems to be forever in contract dispute with his team. Forte was just three yards short of the 1,000 mark in just 12 games, he hit the end zone three times rushing and had one TD reception. Should he work out his contract issues and stay healthy all season he is poised for a big year in 2012.
WR Roy Williams whom the Bears picked up after Dallas cut him loose had a lack luster season with 37 receptions for two touchdowns, he was suppose to be the man in Chicago, a team that hasn’t had a clear number one receiving option in years. He probably will not be brought back next season which prompted the Bears to draft WR Alshon Jeffery who had 23 touchdown receptions for South Carolina in college.
Breakdown: Matt Forte will probably be off the draft board in round one in most leagues. Being a little more fresh from not playing a whole season the previous year he could be a big pick up. Brandon Marshall should be a great receiving option in rounds 2 – 3 with Cutler coming off the board early as well.
