Chicago Bears defensive lineman Khalil Mack (ankle) should return in Week 10 after missing the past two games. Mack's presence on the court puts a hurting on the fantasy chances of the Detroit Lions, especially when Matthew Stafford was sacked 10 times in Week 9. Expect the Bears to get after Stafford early and to restrict the Lions run game. Mack is a great play in IDP leagues, and the Bears defense gets an upgrade in season-long leagues.
Chicago Bears pass rusher Khalil Mack (ankle) was a full participant in practice on Friday. The fact that Mack has not had any setbacks this week is a good sign that he will be able to suit up on Sunday. Mack has missed the last two games, but the Bears have managed to go 2-0 without him. This news is bad for Matthew Stafford, who was sacked 10 times last week against the Minnesota Vikings. The Lions offensive line struggled indoors against the Vikings pass rush, so Mack should be able to have success playing against them in Soldier Field. Consider Mack a must-start in your IDP leagues if he is confirmed as active Sunday morning.
The Chicago Bears defense will line up against a Lions offense in Week 10 that is allowing the 10th most fantasy points to opposing defenses this season. The Bears are coming off an evisceration of the Bills in Week 9, causing four turnovers and holding them to nine points. The Lions are a vastly better offense but are coming off allowing 10 sacks to the Vikings in Week 9. The Bears have prided themselves all season on their ability to create turnovers and are expected to get back All-Pro Khalil Mack back into the mix. Chicago will be a top-5 defensive play in fantasy in Week 10.
