NFC North Player Analysis
Doug Coutts,, Senior Staff Writer

Chicago Bears (vs Kansas City Chiefs)

QB Jay Cutler: The Chiefs are giving up plenty of points and yards, he will be closer to 100% and ready to have his way with the Kansas City secondary. ( 238 yds pass with 2 TDs and 1 Int; 12 yds rush )

QB Jimmy Clausen: ( 35 yds pass )

RB Matt Forte: The Bears workhorse will continue to be relied upon both on the ground and in the air. Another big week on tap this week as the Bears just find a way to get him the ball. ( 68 yds rush; 4 catches for 37 yds )

RB Jacquizz Rodgers: ( 9 yds rush; 1 catch for 6 yds )

RB Jeremy Langford: ( 3 yds rush )

RB Ka'Deem Carey: ( 7 yds rush; 1 catch for 1 yd )

WR Alshon Jeffery: He continues to battle injuries. Check the latest that you can to see if he is playing. Even if he does suit up, he will be looking at limited action. ( 1 yd rush; 4 catches for 56 yds and 1 TD )

WR Eddie Royal: The absence of Jeffery creates an opportunity for Royal to excel. A strong week last week bodes well for another above average fantasy performance against the Chiefs. ( 5 catches for 40 yds )

WR Marquess Wilson: If Jeffery is once again out of the lineup, then Wilson will be in line for a solid fantasy week. ( 2 catches for 27 yds )

WR Cameron Meredith: ( 1 catch for 5 yds )

WR Josh Bellamy: ( 1 catch for 2 yds )

TE Martellus Bennett: His monster season continues. Jeffery being out of the lineup creates even more targets for the big tight end. ( 5 catches for 49 yds )

TE Zach Miller: ( 1 catch for 4 yds )

PK Robbie Gould: The Bears will have little trouble putting the scoreboard operator to work this week, keeping their kicker plenty busy in the process. The extra point and three point tries will be plentiful this week. ( 2 XPs, 1 FG )

Def Chicago Bears: With six sacks in the last two games, this unit is started to get after the quarterback. An efficient offense is also a help, look for a handful of sacks and a couple turnovers this week in Kansas City. ( 2 sacks, 1 INT )

Detroit Lions (vs Arizona Cardinals)

QB Matthew Stafford: Coming off a short week after last week's disappointment in Seattle, the Lions passing game should once again struggle against a tough Cardinals squad. The thing is, on paper, the Cardinals haven't actually been all the great defending the pass. Though we no longer consider Stafford an automatic fantasy starter. ( 297 yds pass with 2 TDs and 1 Int; 5 yds rush )

RB Ameer Abdullah: There will be a little more room to roam against the Cardinals, but the struggles of the entire offense are a downer for fantasy production here. Not a huge week on tap, but the Lions will make the effort to move the ball on the ground. ( 48 yds rush; 4 catches for 33 yds )

RB Joique Bell: No joke. Joique isn't getting the touches. ( 36 yds rush; 2 catches for 19 yds )

RB Theo Riddick: ( 3 yds rush; 3 catches for 20 yds )

RB Zach Zenner: ( 3 yds rush; 1 catch for 1 yd )

WR Calvin Johnson: Playing at home he will look to redeem himself from last Monday's disappointing fumble. Expect a big bounce back week as the Lions need him now more than ever. ( 6 catches for 80 yds and 1 TD )

WR Golden Tate: The entire Lions passing game is in a trough right now, so Tate cannot be counted on to put up big fantasy numbers. ( 2 yds rush; 5 catches for 61 yds )

WR Corey Fuller: ( 1 catch for 7 yds )

WR Lance Moore: ( 1 catch for 13 yds )

TE Eric Ebron: He is on his way to having a big year, but last week's injury puts that on hold. Check the injury report as late as possible to see if he will be playing this week.

TE Brandon Pettigrew: If Ebron is out, then Pettigrew will see some action. ( 1 catch for 14 yds )

TE Tim Wright: ( 1 catch for 4 yds )

PK Matt Prater: Until the offense gets going again, Prater is worth avoiding. ( 2 XPs, 1 FG )

Def Detroit Lions: This unit really rose to the occasion last week, getting pressure on Wilson and keeping the Seahawks off the scoreboard for much of the night. They will have to carry the team once again, and playing at home expect an inspired effort that yields some sacks and a couple of turnovers. ( 3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble )

Green Bay Packers (vs Saint Louis Rams)

QB Aaron Rodgers: Back in the friendly confines of Lambeau Field, Rodgers will be back as one of the top fantasy quarterbacks this week. Though the Rams can get after it from time to time, it is not expected that they can slow down the Packers machine. ( 263 yds pass with 2 TDs; 18 yds rush )

QB Scott Tolzien: ( 16 yds pass; 2 yds rush )

RB Eddie Lacy: The Rams defense has been hit or miss this season and they can be a tough front to run on. It will have an impact on Lacy but we still start him as the matchup is still a good one. ( 53 yds rush; 2 catches for 15 yds )

RB James Starks: He is strictly a change of pace, Lacy is healthy and carrying the load. ( 20 yds rush; 1 catch for 6 yds )

RB Alonzo Harris: ( 5 yds rush; 1 catch for 1 yd )

RB John Kuhn: ( 2 yds rush; 1 catch for 4 yds )

WR Randall Cobb: Rodgers will get Cobb involved early and often making up for a disappointing game in San Francisco. The Rams will not be able to handle the Packers passing attack. ( 2 yds rush; 5 catches for 71 yds and 1 TD )

WR Davante Adams: ( 4 catches for 46 yds )

WR James Jones: He just may be human after all, but we expect he will get back into the endzone once again this week. He has performed remarkably for a guy that was on the street before the season began. ( 4 catches for 57 yds and 1 TD )

WR Ty Montgomery: Just minimal action as Jones and Cobb get the bulk of the work. ( 2 yds rush; 2 catches for 12 yds )

TE Richard Rodgers: He is getting more involved by the week, even finding the endzone against San Francisco last week. Expect Rodgers to keep him involved all over the field to keep the defense honest. ( 1 yd rush; 2 catches for 24 yds )

PK Mason Crosby: He has cooled after a hot start, as the three point chances have been few and far between. We do expect the Packers to score a lot of points this week so he has to be considered a starter. ( 3 XPs, 2 FGs )

Def Green Bay Packers: These guys have registered a baker's dozen in the sack column, and we expect them to get after the quarterback once again this week. A handful of sacks with a couple turnovers sprinkled in, these guys are a good option this week against the Rams. ( 5 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble )
