Week Six Answers: Chicago Bears 20 Atlanta Falcons 22

Q: Can QB Kyle Orton have another great passing game against a weak Falcons defense?

A: "Great" may have been too high a bar to set. Kyle Orton threw for 286 yards and a TD without tossing an INT. He missed "greatness" by a TD. But he has four consectuive good/great games. Look for continued performances like this to make his receving weapons "fantasy-viable."

Q: Is it home-cooking or poor defenses for RB Michael Turner?

A: A 2.2 YPC in 25 carries answers, "Poor defenses." As I have pointed out previously, Turner doesn't catch passes so this poor rushing effort has nowhere else to go for additional support. As an example, look at Dallas Cowboys' RB Marion Barber III. He had just 45 yards rushing (4 pts), but caught eleven passes for 128 yards and a TD (18-34 points depending on format).

Fantasy Player To Watch: WR Devan Hester. After disappointing for the first month, note the recent efforts He has 11 receptions, 153 yards and a TD in the past two games.
