Chicago Bears Fantasy Spin
Bears coach Matt Nagy said Mitchell Trubisky will start in Week 9 against the Eagles. Nagy continued that there's still enough time left in the season to get Trubisky "playing at the level he needs to play at." Chicago's No. 2 overall pick in '17, Trubisky's bottomed out in just his third year with the Bears, pacing for 2,730 yards, 12 touchdowns and 7.5 picks over 15 starts — a step back across the board following his impressive 3,223-yard campaign last season. Having said that, it makes sense for the organization to keep him under center (as much as it may hurt) the rest of the way since sliding 33-year-old veteran Chase Daniel in is a sunk cost for the 3-4 Bears. Trubisky's next test comes against the Eagles' swarming pass rush in Week 9.
Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Spin
Miles Sanders (shoulder) returned to Eagles practice Thursday. Most signs have pointed toward Sanders not missing any time, and this is the strongest one yet. Sanders is coming off his most productive game of the season, albeit on just six touches. Jordan Howard has had a recent monopoly on early downs. Sanders will remain a volatile FLEX play against the Bears.
The under is 7-3 in the Bears’ last 10 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
The under is 6-1 in the Eagles’ last seven games after accumulating more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.
NFL Week 9 Prediction
The under has cashed in nine of the Bears’ last 12 games overall, is 5-1 in their last six games coming off a loss and is 7-2 in their last nine conference games. Meanwhile, the under is 11-5 in the Eagles’ last 16 home games, is 4-1 in their last five games played in November and is 49-22 in their last 71 games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game.
