It's not so much that Grossman is must start, but Culpepper should be Bench until further notice for you. Grossman is a Great guy to have since he'll get a couple TDs vs. the weaker Defenses of the NFC north all season. He may have the 1TD 3INT game soon, so unless it's a great matchup don't start him over a more consistent option like Bulger, McNabb, Peyton. He's certainly climbing the QB ladder.

i think you gotta start him; im in chicago but not a bears fan. though i watch them....its been 4 games now. I now his did fair great against the vikings; but as a QB he has looked very sharp, he's throwing nice deep ball and making his reads. The running games will likely start rolling then that offense will be more than a handful. Fantasy wise, becasue the bears look like they are sure to pass about 45% of the time i would start him, especially if my other QB was Cpepp

I have Rex and Plummer, and Im starting Rex every week until further notice. What is so scary is that the Bears offense looks great now, and I dont even think they're all the way in sync. They left a lot of points on the field last night.

What is most impressive is not the fact that Rex is putting up such gaudy numbers, but rathetr the way he is doing it. He is hitting guys in stride and putting the ball on the right side of the receiver. He is for real, despite his lack of defensive competition the first 3 weeks.

Grossman is not at the level Peyton, Carson, McNabb, etc....however, he is a lot better than many other QB's that were actually drafted this year. Now if you are in a redraft league you could sell but depending on when your playoffs fall, Rex gets Detroit and GB in weeks 16 and 17. If you are in a dynasty league....you might want to hang on to this one.

He's one of those guys who probably won't kill your team to start, but he won't shatter records either. :-/ A lot of middle of the road QB's on good teams are in the same vein.

I'd say he's not one of the top options unless the Bears are playing a poor pass defense. He's pretty much on the level that Plummer was at last year...10-12th best QB stats, maybe one or two huge games here and there, but generally mediocre stats each game like 200-250 yards passing, 1-2 TD's, and 0-1 INT's.

The best part is the low INT totals...if the Bears are winning all the time, they don't need to throw as much which will limit the amount of risks Rex will have to take. That's the advantage of having a QB from a good team. :-)

Just dealt Randy Moss for him in a dynasty league where I was extremely weak at QB. I like his FF playoff schedule more then anything. He gets St. Lous, Detroit, and TB.
