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.

Our View: Sims being out puts rookie Adam Shaheen in a big role today, although the Bears prefer to run and probably won't have to attempt many passes against the Packers today.
