QB: Andy Dalton

Bears coach Matt Nagy said Andy Dalton will start in Week 12 against the Lions.

Don't eat before kick-off. While it may seem like Detroit's defense turned the corner out of their Week 9 bye, matchups against Mason Rudolph and Baker Mayfield would make any unit look like an elite one. Dalton only completed 48% of his passes upon stepping in for Justin Fields (ribs) on Sunday but could produce as a thin streamer in a plus matchup. We suggest using this time on Thursday for something more fun, like talking to your relatives about politics.
