Summary

Last year was disappointing for Lance Briggs as he missed half the season with injuries and the Bears run defense suffered greatly as a result. He'll turn 34 years old this season so his best days are clearly behind him, but he remains a reliable veteran who makes most of the plays he's supposed to. Briggs has never been much of a playmaker so his fantasy value comes primarily from tackles. Even if he's lost a step, he should continue to be a 3-down player as long as he stays healthy and that should make him a viable LB3 in most balanced scoring systems. (May 26)
