Week 7: vs New Orleans Saints

All WR vs NO

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Mitchell Trubisky will step back under center for the Bears, though it's questionable whether he'll even upgrade the offense from Week 5's clunker. Chase Daniel played like a true backup in London, struggling to create anything down the field and throwing costly interceptions in traffic. But Trubisky remains a similarly flawed passer, and his 2019 has been nothing short of dreadful. He's completed 65% of his throws, but they've been mostly check-downs, as evidenced by his league-low 5.5 yards per attempt. Averaging just 193 yards per full game, he hasn't shown a single spark of 2018's dynamism. For every impressive downfield connection with Allen Robinson, there's a bad misfire or easy interception to a defender he'd missed. It's hindered the supporting cast's production noticeably, with Robinson the only pass-catcher averaging more than 25 yards a game. At least Robinson looks healthy and explosive, posting 60+ yards in 4 of 5 games thus far. But in this low-impact attack, his ceiling is tied to Trubisky and tightly capped. That goes even more for the likes of Anthony Miller, Taylor Gabriel, and tight end Trey Burton, none of whom are more than novelty acts right now. The Saints' volatile pass defense remains as volatile as ever, swinging from the bottom tier of the league over the first 3 weeks (8.9 yards per attempt and 319 per game) to the top over the last 3 (just 6.6 and 197). Last week, they forced Jaguars rookie Gardner Minshew into the worst day (14 of 29 for 163 yards, with an interception) of his impressive debut. When top cornerback Marshon Lattimore is on his game, it's exceptionally hard for opponents to work the field anywhere near him. Over the past 3 weeks, he's been the driving force behind the Saints shutting down Amari Cooper, Mike Evans, and red-hot D.J. Chark. The trio combined for just 91 yards in this matchup, with Evans going completely catchless. Of course, there are still vulnerabilities here to attack. Eli Apple is a talented yet inconsistent cover man on the other side, and the safeties are generally stronger in run support than in downfield coverage. The Saints will also be without slot man P.J. Williams, who was handed a two-game suspension this week. Williams was a liability, but backup Patrick Robinson has historically been even worse. The general rule in fantasy is to avoid No. 1 receivers in Lattimore's coverage - he'll likely follow Allen Robinson around a fair bit Sunday - but approach all other receivers in typical fashion.
