Bears-Lions Daily Fantasy NFL Picks, Betting Odds: Alshon Jeffrey Solid if he Pl has your Bears-Lions Daily Fantasy NFL picks along with the latest betting odds that had Detroit -3 with action relatively balanced on this game.

What to Consider With The Bears:  Chicago ranks last against the pass according to Football Outsiders DVOA and they’re nearly 20% worse than the next closest team. Chicago’s run defense continues to deteriorate.  None of this really matters against these Lions, however. 

The Detroit backfield is a disaster and starting quarterback Matthew Stafford has been equally as awful.  This is a winless team. 

What to Consider With The Lions:  They rank among the top 10 in points allowed to opposing quarterbacks

Who to Play: Jay Cutler ($5.2K) – He’s been a solid fantasy player this season.  He had two touchdowns and over 250 yards last week.  Now he faces a weak Lions defense.  He had well over 20 fantasy points against Detroit the last time he faced them. 

Matt Forte ($7.1K) – An excellent option among running backs.  If he is the cheapest you can find among this week’s top picks here at, Forte is the one to roster.  With 120 touches on the year, nobody else on this Chicago squad even comes close. 

Alshon Jeffrey ($6.4K) – A top choice if he’s ready to go.  Jeffrey is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.  Jeffrey became the 4th Bears player in franchise history with 1,000 receiving yards in consecutive seasons (1,421 in 2013 and 1,133 in 2014).

Jeffery is historically tough on the Lions' secondary, catching 33 balls for 440 yards and four touchdowns in five career meetings.

The odds are good Jeffrey will play Sunday.
