Hester, Lloyd, and Davis should all see equal time. The depth for WRs is pretty cloudy right now. Hester and Lloyd will most likely start. Davis will see time in the slot. Booker will also get rotated in the mix at times. Bradley and Bennett will get a few snaps at times as well.

Hester is probably the only receiver worth drafting(very late rounds). He should get about 4 return TDs. Last year he had 20 rec, 299 yards, and 2 tds in very limited time at WR. It was his first time playing at WR at the NFL level. He has gone through another training camp and will play a lot more snaps this year. He WILL improve his numbers, by how much? That is whats hard to predict. 55 rec, 850 yards, and 6 TDs is not very unrealistic.

Please stop predicting these outrageous numbers. 850 Yards would put Hester close to if not in the top 25 WRs in terms of yardage. Hester is not a clear #1 by any means and Chicago has serious QB issues. Yes he will improve on his 300 yards from last year but not that much.

Davis and Orton were clicking last week, but why would you want any of these guys on your fantasy team? I'm in a divisional league were I can only start players from the NFC North and I don't want anything to do with them outside of Hester and his return yards/TDs.

:-?

How many teams are in your league? 3? There's only so many WRs in the NFC North. I'd rather have a Bears starting wideout over a 3rd WR on Green Bay, Detroit or Minnesota, none of them having stellar pass games.

Problem right now is that the Bears have a ton of guys rotating in and out as starters (Davis, Hester, Lloyd, Earl Bennett), so what little value a consistent starter on the Bears would have is eliminated thanks to that.

Prediction: No Bear will have 800 yards receiving.

Someone may end up with more than 6 or 7 rec TDs though.

Don't forget the serious problems the Bears have on the offensive line. It looks like they'll have backups playing left tackle and left guard.
