Around the league, the Buccaneers are visiting the Bears, and both teams' lack of defense could create many opportunities for fantasy points. Tampa Bay's stud rookie wide receiver Mike Evans tore up the Redskins defense for 209 receiving yards and two touchdowns last week, and he could have a similar game this week in Chicago, making Josh McCown a great streaming option for Ben Roethlisberger or Cam Newton owners. 

Several major fantasy players suffered injuries last week, including the Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) and Julius Thomas (ankle), both of whom will be gametime decisions against the Dolphins. With those players slowed, should fantasy owners expect more out of Wes Welker or C.J. Anderson? Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald is also a gametime decisions after a knee injury that prevented him from practicing all week. Should owners start or bench him?
