Week 15: vs Chicago Bears
All TE vs CHI
FBG says: Tough matchup. Matthew Stafford put up his second-highest yardage total of the season last week with 381 yards but threw two interceptions and just one touchdown as the Lions actually struggled to barely win over the Buccaneers. Stafford has been a top-five fantasy quarterback since Week 6, averaging 295 passing yards per game with 14 touchdowns over that span with just two games below 290 passing yards over that eight-game span. Stafford has also been absolutely locked in over the last two weeks as he has completed over 80% of his passes in back to back games. Golden Tate has hauled in 16 receptions over his last two games, tied for third-most among receivers over that span as he has been the apple of Stafford's eye recently. Marvin Jones has not seen as many looks as Tate recently, but he has still been putting up decent numbers himself with an average of 88 receiving yards per game over his last eight games and three 100+ yard games over that span. Eric Ebron has also been heating up as he now has at least four receptions in four straight games, including a PPR explosion last week as he hauled in 10-of-11 targets for 94 yards. This big of a game was truly an outlier for Ebron though, as he had just 32 receptions on the season going into last week.
The Bears have really been playing well against the pass for most of the season, giving up ninth fewest passing yards and the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game against opposing quarterbacks. Racking up 35 sacks is solid for any defense at this point in the season as Akiem Hicks continues to play at a high level, leading the team in sacks with seven. Despite only snagging six interceptions, this Bears secondary has been very effective on the season. They have allowed multiple passing touchdowns in just three of 13 games this season with the pair of Prince Amukamara and Kyle Fuller locking down opposing receivers. We saw this in action last week as both cornerbacks and the rest of the Bears secondary did a great job shutting down AJ Green and the Bengals offense. This should be a fun matchup to watch with the Bears defense and Lions passing offense both playing at high levels right now, but the edge has to go to the Bears here as these cornerbacks are tough to get open on.
