Week 11: at Chicago Bears

All QB vs CHI

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Kirk Cousins has enjoyed a fine debut in Minnesota, sitting 13th league-wide in adjusted yardage per attempt. He's been a solid fantasy producer, too, averaging 289 yards a game and topping 300 four times. Still, this attack is a two-pronged one, heavily dependent upon top wideouts Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. The pair has accounted for 60% of the team's receiving yardage, and with Diggs sidelined in Week 9, Cousins struggled to produce. He was forced to go small-ball, generating just 164 yards on 22 attempts, as Thielen was unable to find any room down the field. Cousins is an underrated passer on the upper tier of names, but it's hard to ask much production with a whittled-down receiving corps. Laquon Treadwell brings little to the table, dropping too many passes and struggling to get downfield. Simply put, Diggs' Sunday availability will be of major importance to this whole unit. He has the speed and skill to succeed against the Bears' stout man cornerbacks, and Thielen could use more room to operate down the field. Chicago's pass defense has experienced peaks and valleys throughout the 2018 season. They've looked utterly dominant against the likes of Sam Bradford, Sam Darnold, and Nathan Peterman, but human against a pair of elite passers (Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady). Thrown weirdly into the mix is a career-best 380-yard, 3-touchdown showing by Brock Osweiler. In all, though, this is an imposing unit that makes things difficult for most passers. Khalil Mack is a leading Defensive Player of the Year candidate, with seven sacks over seven full games, and he's flanked by a handful of dynamic situational rushers. And cornerbacks Prince Amukamara and Kyle Fuller make for a typically-stout press-man coverage duo. Vic Fangio's defense has always prioritized shutting down top outside receivers, and they've been solid there more often than not, so Stefon Diggs has his work cut out if he suits up.
