Chicago Bears DFS Spin
Mitchell Trubisky is the ninth highest scoring quarterback in fantasy football over the past three weeks. Trubisky has been a QB streaming revelation since taking back the Bears' starting job from Nick Foles, who was abysmal throughout his time as starter. He's ninth in passing yardage (776) and -- most importantly -- second in passing touchdowns (7) over that span. Only Aaron Rodgers has thrown more touchdowns over the past three weeks. Peppering Allen Robinson with targets, Trubisky has shown some semblance of a fantasy ceiling since Week 12. He'll be a streaming option once again in Week 15 against the Vikings.

Kyle Rudolph (foot) is out for Week 15 against the Bears. Irv Smith, who caught four of four targets for 65 yards and a score last week with Rudolph sidelined, becomes a top streaming option against Chicago. Tight ends have seen 24.83 percent of the targets against the Bears this season, the second highest rate in the league behind only the Bengals. The Panthers and Bills are the only teams that have allowed more tight end receptions than the Bears in 2020. Smith is a high-end TE2 this week.
