The Bears will look to continue a two game winning streak as they head into a Week 7 match-up with the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams won’t make it easy on them though, as they have proven to be a tough match up defensively this year. Will Nick Foles look to utilize either of these receivers to help lead Chicago to victory and do they belong in your starting lineups? We break down the fantasy analysis below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bears WRs Anthony Miller, Darnell Mooney

The Rams secondary has played well so far this season, as they have allowed only eight passing touchdowns in six games. They are allowing an average of 209.5 air yards per game. Anthony Miller’s role in the offense seems to be slowly fading since he opened up in Week 1 with six targets. His most recent performance was unimpressive, as he managed only eight yards on three receptions. His volume and production are not high enough to trust him in your starting lineups this week.

Darnell Mooney has played a fairly consistent role for the Bears offense this season, but that role has been a minor one. Aside from seeing nine targets in Week 4, Mooney has not seen more than five targets in a single game. He is averaging 10.9 yards per reception and three receptions per game. Given these averages, Mooney’s fantasy relevance is extremely touchdown dependent. This makes him an unreliable option and he belongs on the bench in Week 7.
