Vikings vs Bears : Welcome to Week 11 of the fantasy football season, where good matchups are hard to find and there are plenty of potential busts galore. With most of the league’s bottom-barrel teams on bye this week, there just aren’t as many streamers and sleepers to exploit at any position.
That means that there will be a lot more busts in our fantasy football rankings (looking at you, Vikings and Bears), and it could be a lower scoring fantasy week in general. But no matter what, avoiding busts is critical, so that will make for some tough start ’em, sit ’em decisions as fantasy owners try to sift through the minimal separation between top players in the fantasy rankings. The crunch might cause you to gamble on someone “new” like Brandon Marshall (Update: Marshall isn’t expected to be active for the Saints) or someone “old” like Jordan Howard, but should you?
Last week, our busts were fairly accurate. All of our quarterbacks — Matthew Stafford, Andy Dalton, and Tom Brady — didn’t do much in blowout losses. Alshon Jeffery and Marquise Goodwin struggled against tougher prime-time matchups at the receiver position. And even our defenses, the Rams, Patriots, and Panthers, all busted out entirely. We hit pretty well on those, so we’ll try to continue our success in Week 11.
Take a look at the Week 11 Sunday Night Football game between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears through the eyes of the enemy.
Finally, Week 11 of the 2018 NFL season has arrived and the Minnesota Vikings are set to take on one of their toughest tests of the year in the Chicago Bears in hostile territory at Soldier Field in Illinois.
The winner of this game will claim the top spot in the NFC North and have a clear advantage in winning the division with only six weeks left in the season, a situation that would be great for the Vikings.
While Vikings fans have been listening and reading a lot on the Minnesota side of things, sometimes it is great to get a look at the game through another set of eyes, and thankfully we were able to do that.
The Viking Age exchanged five questions with FanSided’s Chicago Bears site Bear Goggles On and had site expert Mike Burzawa share his thoughts on the Bears and how they will match up against the Vikings.
First, let’s take a look at the Chicago quarterback!
