Chicago Bears - 2015 Projections

Chicago Bears

Overall Outlook
The Chicago Bears had a disastrous 2014. The club finished 5-11, dead last in the NFC North, along with turmoil surrounding the coach and QB. So, in 2015 the organization decided to make a change at Head Coach, replacing Marc Trestman with John Fox.  Fox will run a more disciplined team, but do they have the players in place to be a winner in 2015?  We aren't counting on it. We expect the Bears to struggle in 2015 and miss the playoffs again this year.

Offseason Moves
Key additions: RB Jacquizz Rodgers, WR Eddie Royal, TE Bear Pascoe, G Vlad Ducasse, C Will Montomgery, DE/DT Jarvis Jenkins, DE/OLB Pernell McPhee, DE/OLB Sam Acho, ILB Mason Foster, CB Alan Ball, S Antrel Rolle

Key losses: WR Brandon Marshall, C Roberto Garza, C Brian De La Puente, DE/DT Ray McDonald, DT Stephen Paea, OLB Lance Briggs, ILB D.J. Williams, CB Charles Tillman, S Chris Conte, S Danny McCray

Offensive Outlook
The Bears offense scored poorly in 2014, and things likely will not be any different in 2015. QB Jay Cutler is expected to be a low end QB2, but Forte, Jeffery and Bennett are expected to be top 5-10 at their respective positions... Unfortunately, Chicago has a difficult schedule this season, with matchups against defenses like Seattle, Arizona, St. Louis, Denver, Kansas City, Green Bay x2, Minnesota x2, and San Diego, we don't see a great year coming from the Bears fantasy studs.

Projections - 2015  
QB1 - Jay Cutler - Passing - 4000 yds / 24 tds Rushing - 200 yds / 1 td
RB1 - Matt Forte- Rushing - 1150 yds / 6 tds  Receiving - 65 recs / 525 yds / 3 tds
RB2 - Ka'Deem Carey - Rushing - 300 yds / 2 tds  Receiving - 15 recs / 150 yds / 0 tds
WR1 - Alshon Jeffery - Receiving - 90 recs / 1200 yds / 10 tds
WR2 - Kevin White - Receiving - 65 recs / 850 yds / 4 tds
WR3 - Eddie Royal - Receiving - 50 recs / 550 yds / 2 tds
TE1 - Martellus Bennett - Receiving - 65 recs / 700 yds / 5 tds

Defensive Outlook
The Bears Defense was brutally bad again in 2014, Giving up the 2nd most points and 3rd most yards allowed in the NFL. The team is changing from a 4-3 to 3-4 defense, and rebuilding the unit to fit the new scheme. IDP wise, the team looks to be on the field a lot, so you'll likely get good tackle numbers from the starters. This unit is not draftable as a DST in almost any format.

Projections - 2015
DE1 - Jay Ratliff - 50 total Ts / 6 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
DE2 - Ego Ferguson - 35 total Ts / 4 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 2 total TOs

ILB2 - Jon Bostic - 105 total Ts / 1  sack / 2 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
CB1 - Kyle Fuller - 70  total Ts / 0 sacks / 15 passes defensed / 5 total TOs
CB2 - Tim Jennings - 55 total Ts / 0 sacks / 10 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
