Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery makes a catch during a 2015 game."

Alshon Jeffery (Wide Receiver): Jeffery is the main target for Jay Cutler in the Bears new offensive scheme. John Fox will likely look to utilize the passing game as much as he can like he did in Denver, this will increase Jeffery's targets and production. Jeffery has been injured for the entire preseason so his availability this season might be spotty. The Bears are suffering at wide receiver but Jeffery should be Cutler's primary option.

Martellus Bennett (Tight End): Bennett is in a contract year and has been one of the best tight ends in fantasy football for the last couple of seasons. Bennett should be one of the more reliable and healthy options for the Bears this season. If John Fox can turbo charge the Bears offense Bennett could be in for a big year.

Jay Cutler (Quarterback): Cutler has been absolutely horrific these past few seasons but the Bears are on the cusp of turning their franchise around and the team of John Fox and Adam Gase should be able to get Cutler back on track. Gase has a history of fixing quarterbacks so Cutler could be on the verge of resurgence.

Matt Forte (Running Back): Forte is always a solid fantasy back. Forte will lose some targets in the passing game and will become a more classic style of running back. Forte still has 2nd to 3rd round value however this will lower his ADP significantly in PPR leagues.  

Eddie Royal (Wide Receiver): Royal has been transformative in camp. He has stepped in for the injured wide receivers and has lined up everywhere, as the starting wide receiver down to the third option in the offense. Royal should be targeted heavily as he has played the most with Cutler in training camp.
