Texans vs. Bears: Fantasy football projections featuring Arian Foster, Brandon Marshall, Matt Forte

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

We break down the pertinent fantasy projections for the Week 10 matchup between the Houston Texans and the Chicago Bears.

Sunday Night Football in Week 10 provides one of the most interesting matchups we've seen so far in 2012. The Texans and Bears are two of the most talented teams in the league this year. These two teams have one thing in common, they both suffered rather embarrassing losses to the Packers. Each sitting at 7-1, this week will be one of the toughest tests yet. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup this week, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.

Houston Texans

Arian Foster is easily the biggest fantasy stud on this roster, but will he be in Week 10? The Bears have only given up two rushing touchdowns all season long, including one huge burst from Chris Johnson last week when the game was already out of hand. Matt Schaub wouldn't be a bad option for your bench this time around if you can find another option, as Chicago gives up the fewest fantasy points to opposing passers. One to watch would be Owen Daniels. He's been on a scoring frenzy as of late, he continues to deal with injuries, now nursing "some type of hip pointer" as Gary Kubiak put it. Points may not be abundant in this matchup, but Foster, Daniels and Andre Johnson remain must-starts.

Chicago Bears

Brandon Marshall absolutely went off in Week 9. Three touchdowns will leave you with plenty of confidence on starting him every week. The Texans haven't allowed a rushing touchdown to an opposing running back all year, but fortunately Matt Forte doesn't need touchdowns to solidify his value each week. Michael Bush, though, doesn't look like much of an option. Aside from giving up a ridiculous six passing touchdowns to Aaron Rodgers, Houston's pass defense has kept quarterbacks away from huge scoring performances. Ryan Fitzpatrick failed to find the end zone last week. Jay Cutler is a tough start here, so you might want to look for a better matchup.
