Week 3 Monday Night Football Preview: Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears & Fantasy Football Implications
Chicago is a bit of a surprise thus far, Jay Cutler has taken to the Mike Martz offense and Matt Forte has done a nice job of impersonating Marshall Faulk.
At this point the No. 1 receiver is unclear. Coming into the season everyone was expecting Devin Aromashadu to make the "leap." Well, he made the "leap" to the bench and didn't record a single catch in week two. Johnny Knox has been consistently involved over the first couple weeks and we even saw good old Devin Hester make a nice one handed grab for a touchdown last week.
Still, if there is a go to guy in Chicago, it's Matt Forte, who has seen heavy involvement in the passing game over the first couple of weeks.
That being said, Green Bay is so good a complete annihilation is always a possibility. I mean, Jay Cutler has to revert back to the norm (4 interceptions in a half and sulking) at some point, right?
Green Bay is for real, after tonight we’ll know if Chicago is a legitimate contender (with dependable fantasy options) or if they are just a nice two week flash in the pan.
