Los Angeles Chargers Fantasy Spin

Keenan Allen was held out of Thursday's practice with a hamstring injury. It's a new issue for Allen, who was not listed on Wednesday's report. The fact that he wasn't even "limited" is a very bad sign ahead of Sunday's road trip to Chicago. A "limited" day Friday would put Allen back on track to play, but fantasy players need to be making contingency plans. With Travis Benjamin recently joining Dontrelle Inman on injured reserve, the Bolts have extremely little receiver depth. Were Allen to sit, it would be a Hunter Henry/Austin Ekeler-type day in the Windy City.

Chicago Bears Fantasy Spin

David Montgomery rushed twice for six yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Saints, adding two receptions for 13 additional yards. Montgomery also lost the first fumble of his NFL career. The entire Bears offense appeared to be out of sorts for virtually the entire afternoon, failing to clear even 90 yards by halftime. Game script didn’t set up well for Montgomery in this spot, as the Bears trailed by multiple scores for most of the game. Still, seven total rush attempts as a team is fairly ridiculous. He’s better approached as an upside RB3 as long as Tarik Cohen remains so involved. Perhaps next week’s home matchup against the Chargers will be the get-right spot that Mitch Trubisky and this offense need.

NFL Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The under is 4-1 in the Chargers’ last five games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

Chicago

The under is 7-1 in the Bears’ last eight games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.

Prediction

The under has cashed in five of the last six meetings between these two teams, is 4-1 in their last five games coming off a loss and is 7-2 in their last nine games in October. The under is also 5-1 in the Bears’ last six home games, is 10-4 in their last 14 games versus an opponent with a losing record and has cashed in eight of their last 11 home games. Mitchell Trubisky is horrendous and until Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy admit their mistake and move forward without the young signal-caller, this Chicago offense will continue to be horse manure. Meanwhile, the Chargers are unlikely to move the ball against a pissed off Chicago defense that was just shredded by the Saints a week ago on this same field.
