Week 11: vs Detroit Lions

All QB vs DET

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Bears passing offense has been one of the worst in the league this season, ranking 31st in passing yards per game with just under a 60% completion rate and only nine passing touchdowns to show for. The Bears coaching staff knows they have a tough situation to deal with on offense with a rookie quarterback and lack of receiving weapons, so they have done a good job at limiting Mitchell Trubisky's pass attempts thus far. Last week, however, the Bears were playing catch-up for most of the game and actually had a decent matchup against the Packers secondary. This combination resulted in a season-high 35 pass attempts from Trubisky as he completed 60% of them for 297 yards and a touchdown. The newly acquired Dontrelle Inman made an immediate impact as he tied for the team lead in targets (eight) while leading the team in receptions with six for 88. Wide receivers typically do not have this level of chemistry and success in their first game with a new team, especially midseason. This success, however, goes to show how bleak the Bears receiving corps really were. Inman is by no means an elite talent though, and he remains in a run-heavy offense which will limit his fantasy upside this season. The Lions own the 10th ranked pass defense using DVOA despite allowing a below average 7.4 passing yards per attempt and 247 passing yards per game. They have done a great job preventing big games against them by opposing passers, as only three quarterbacks have passed for multiple touchdowns with only two exceeding 300 passing yards. Darius Slay is having a great season as their top cornerback, and he looked great last week against the Browns as he nabbed a big interception late in the game while allowing just 42 yards despite being targeted more than any other cornerback in that game (11 targets). Slay should be expected to take care of Inman this week, which will likely put an abrupt end to Inman's brief success with the Bears.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 4 vs GB (21 / 33 / 218 / 1 / 2 pass, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)

Glennon was sacked and fumbled on the first offensive play for the Bears and it didn't get much better from there. He made a few throws on the second drive of the game to move the Bears into Packers territory, only to botch a snap and lose the ball to Green Bay again. A baffling interception accounted for Glennon's third turnover of the first half and the Bears were down 21 before a scoring pass by Glennon to Kendall Wright in the two-minute drill going into the half. Glennon showed a glimmer of hope to open the second half with throws to Wright and Josh Bellamy, but reverted to form on the next drive with another poor interception. He did muster a garbage time touchdown drive, but it was too late for the Bears and his chances of starting again without an injury to Mitchell Trubisky.

2017 Week 2 vs TB (31 / 45 / 301 / 1 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Attention reader: If Mike Glennon is on your roster you're doing it wrong. Glennon tossed two interceptions and lost a fumble in Sunday's 29-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. One of the interceptions resulted in a pick-six and his other turnovers resulted in points for Tampa. Glennon regularly threw into bracket coverage/double coverage, struggled to adjust to the Tampa pass rush and didn't protect the football. Glennon doesn't have an immense amount of talent, obviously, and Bears management has done very little to surround him with talented players who might be able to make up for some of that lack of talent. What else is there to say?

2017 Week 1 vs ATL (26 / 40 / 213 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

It wasn't the prettiest of efforts, but Bears fans will take it. Glennon completed 26 of 40 passes for 213 yards and a touchdown and zero turnovers in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The most important factor of Glennon's performance is the zero turnovers. Not turning over the ball is what will keep him on the field and Mitchell Trubisky on the bench. It was evident Sunday that Glennon has no one who can stretch the field. Kevin White was drafted to be that guy for the Bears, but he's now out for the season with a shoulder injury. His stable of talent is unlikely to get better this season, either. Glennon has very little value from a fantasy perspective.
