NFL fans aren't used to watching a high-flying Chicago Bears' offensive attack, but last season they were the second-highest scoring offense in the league in 2013. Now in their second season with head coach Marc Trestman, the offense should improve, which means some valuable fantasy players for the upcoming season.
Jay Cutler had his most efficient season as a pro when he was healthy last season, and he will finally be running the same offense for the second year in a row in Chicago. His health is a concern, but he could take big strides this season, making him a solid borderline No. 1 or very good backup in most leagues.
Matt Forte is one of the biggest dual threats in all the NFL. His fantasy value is through the roof because he gets consistent rush attempts, as well as catches out of the offense. Last season, he showed he could score more touchdowns, so this could be a big fantasy year for the veteran.
Already within striking distance of the Bears' all-time receiving yards mark after two seasons, Brandon Marshall is a top five receiver option in fantasy football. Even though the emergence of young Alshon Jeffery may take away some of his touches, he's still Cutler's favorite target and that equates to big fantasy numbers.
Alshon Jeffery burst onto the scene last season and rewarded the few fantasy owners who trusted in him at the beginning of the season. The second part of the NFL's best receiving duo, Jeffery should put up numbers similar to Marshall and will be a big fantasy asset in 2014.
It's been a long time since the Bears had a solid pass catching tight end, but Martellus Bennett gives them just that. His gigantic 6-foot-6 frame makes him an ideal red zone target, and he will score plenty of touchdowns to make him a solid fantasy starter in most deep leagues.
