Week 14: at Cincinnati Bengals

All TE vs CIN

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Bears remain loath to ask rookie Mitchell Trubisky to throw much, and it's dinging his fantasy outlook to near-Tim Tebow levels. Trubisky has attempted just 24.1 passes per start, topping 30 in 4 games but falling below 17 in 3 others. We've seen his absolute ceiling - a 297-yard, 1-touchdown game against the Packers 4 weeks ago - yet no other performances have been fantasy-worthy. His receiving corps doesn't boast any intriguing names, partly due to an injury-riddled lack of talent and partly due to Trubisky's inability to throw deep (just 16 of 39 when throwing 15+ yards downfield). Dontrelle Inman is modestly appealing, with games of 88 and 64 yards on his recent resume, but he's still not a fantasy option. The Bengals' saving grace on defense has been this pass-snuffing unit, which has allowed the NFL's eighth-fewest yards and sixth-fewest touchdowns. There's nothing fishy about those numbers, either: they're giving up just 5.5 net yards per attempt, the league's fifth-best mark. Granted, their schedule has been relatively lax, and they've feasted against poor quarterbacks, while Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger have hung three big games on them. Thankfully, Bears rookie Mitchell Trubisky is far from a matchup-busting gunslinger, and he projects to very little success against this unit. That goes for the Bears' barely-there wideouts, too: Cincinnati has allowed only three players (Antonio Brown, Jack Doyle, and Geronimo Allison) to notch 65+ yards.
