If you like to live dangerously, you might consider taking a look at these Chicago Bears players for your fantasy football team this week.

As if the Chicago Bears were already letting people down enough this year, boy, last week’s fantasy football output from Bears players was dreadful.

Not that they, or any other players, really care about our fantasy teams, but still…help us out a little, guys.

Thank goodness I benched Jordan Howard in the one league I own him in. 0.70 points would have been awfully hard to stomach. With Howard dealing with a shoulder injury and teams stacking the box because of how bad Mike Glennon is, we might have to get used to some rough games from the hard-charging Bears back.

Fortunately, I also happen to own Tarik Cohen in that league (PPR), and that’s starting to look like a viable play every single week now. But more on that later…

Aside from that, though, the cupboard looks pretty bare as far as Chicago Bears that will actually get you fantasy points. Unfortunately, bad quarterback play and injuries can do that to you.

To be frank, there really aren’t any Bears that could be considered locks to score big for you in fantasy this week. The Pittsburgh Steelers have a really solid defense that will apply serious pressure to Glennon and the Bears offense.

Then again, faced with the dynamic Steelers’ offense, the Bears might just have plenty of garbage time opportunities if things go badly.

Here are a few Chicago Bears that might do something for you this week in fantasy football. Play them at your own risk.
