Start: Matt Forte
Matt Forte is a beast. He continues to put up big numbers and isn't going to slow down anytime soon. Make sure to have him in this weekend against Oakland.

Start: Martellus Bennett
Martellus Bennett hasn't been great this season, but either have the Bears. He has a a great matchup coming up on Sunday against bad Raiders pass defense.

Eddie Royal was a solid off-season signing​ by the Bears, but he hasn't done much this season. Don't use him in fantasy this week.

Even though they got plenty of game film over the first three weeks, the Bears should start fresh and build for the future starting this Sunday against Oakland.

Trading Jared Allen Was A Smart Move By The Bears
The new Bears regime did the right thing by shipping off aging veteran Jared Allen. Who will the Bears use to fill his starting spot moving forward?

Linebackers
The Bears' pass rush has been bad this season, but their inside linebackers have fared well. The linebacker play needs to improve overall.

Cornerbacks
Kyle Fuller was exposed on Sunday and the Bears could do some shuffling at cornerback with their former first round pick struggling.

Safeties
The safeties haven't been bad for the Bears, but they haven't been great. Well, either has any of the Bears' defense for that matter.

Defensive line
The Bears' defensive line was perhaps the only respectable unit from Sunday's game. They will have their hands full against Marshawn Lynch in Seattle.

3. Kyle Fuller
Kye Fuller is a promising player who has a chance to be an elite corner real soon especially under the guidance of Vic Fangio.

4. Jared Allen
Jared Allen is now 33 and he is set to switch to outside linebacker. Will he be successful? that's anyone's guess. Regardless​ he is important to that defense.

The Bears Need To Get Back To Being The Monsters Of The Midway

5. Lance Briggs
Lance Briggs is the only outside backer on this top-five list and his ball skills and tackling ability give him the spot.
