The Chicago Bears' defense has been one of the biggest difference makers in fantasy football. Matthew Stafford and the struggling Lions offense helped keep it that way.
The Bears held Matthew Stafford and the Lions to seven points, sacking Stafford three times and recovering two fumbles from Detroit running backs. They also picked off Stafford at the end of the fourth quarter to add insult to injury.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy defenses can often sway a week, and the Bears' defense has been a difference-maker this season, regardless of the matchup.
While some of the bigger playmakers are getting a bit older, Chicago's pass rush is still among the best in the NFL, and the entire defense has a knack for making big plays. The Bears have five defensive touchdowns on the season. They are completely matchup-proof at this point.
