Chicago Bears Fantasy Spin

Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) is questionable for the team's Week 2 matchup against the Broncos. Burton would be at serious risk for reduced snaps even if he's ultimately able to suit up. Backup TE Adam Shaheen (47% snaps and two targets in Week 1) wasn't nearly involved enough last week to warrant streamer consideration if Burton is ultimately ruled out.

Denver Broncos Fantasy Spin

Emmanuel Sanders caught 5-of-7 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Raiders. Sanders was held to one catch for six yards in the first half. He salvaged his night with a 53-yard catch late in the game and scored on a back-shoulder fade on the final drive. Sanders looked to be the No. 2 option behind Courtland Sutton, who led Denver in receiving and targets. He’ll be a WR3 for Week 2 against Chicago.

NFL Betting Trends

Chicago

The Bears are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games and are 6-1 against the number in their last seven games versus a team with a losing record.

Denver

The Browns are just 8-20-1 against the number in their last 29 games overall and are 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 home games.

Prediction

To be honest, I’m not in love with either side of this matchup. Fangio will know the best method to scheme against Matt Nagy and I do believe Mitchell Trubisky is as bad as he showed last Thursday night in the team’s loss to the Packers. That said, if this game comes down to the wire, which it might, I’d rather have the better overall team, which is the Bears. Fangio knows Nagy’s offense well but the same argument can be made on the other side, too. And while Trubisky is a problem, I don’t see how Joe Flacco and Co. moves the ball on Chicago’s nasty defense.
