Fantasy football projections, Week 15: Bears vs. Browns featuring Jay Cutler, Matt Forte and Josh Gordon

We break down the Week 15 matchup between the Chicago Bears and the Cleveland Browns.

The Week 15 matchup between the Chicago Bears and the Cleveland Browns will feature the triumphant return of a starting quarterback. We've got all the fantasy projections for you courtesy of numberFire.

Chicago Bears

Earlier this week, head coach Marc Trestman announced that Jay Cutler will start against the Browns. That might come as a bit of a shock to Josh McCown owners. McCown went 3-2 in the five games he started and is coming off a game that saw him throw for 348 yards and four touchdown passes. Cutler will be hard pressed to repeat that kind of performance against a Browns defense that boasts the likes of Joe Haden in its secondary unit.

If Cutler is having trouble this week, he'll look to running back Matt Forte to keep the pressure off of him. Forte finished with an outstanding 175 total yards and a touchdown last week, and he was easily the biggest beneficiary of McCown's solid play. Forte will no doubt be starting for his fantasy owners this week.

Cleveland Browns

Quarterback Jason Campbell was all-in against the New England Patriots last week. Had he been playing any other team, the Browns might have walked away with a win. In fantasy terms, Campbell's owners probably did. He threw for a career-high 391 yards against the Pats. Though he probably won't flirt with 400 yards against the Bears, he should do well as Chicago just isn't what they used to be defensively.

Of course if Campbell continues to play at a high level this week, it will benefit his best receiver Josh Gordon. Gordon has done well this year no matter who is throwing the ball. He has five touchdowns in the last four games and managed a league record 774 yards receiving during that span. He's a no- doubt starter in fantasy leagues and is one of the hottest players in the fantasy postseason this year.
