When the No. 7 seed Chicago Bears take on the No. 2 seed New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon, the Saints’ defense will try to make someone else other than Allen Robinson beat them. Can either Anthony Miller or Darnell Mooney step up? Let’s break it down below.
Fantasy Football analysis: Bears WRs Allen Robinson ($6600), Anthony Miller ($3300), Darnell Mooney ($3900)
The last time these two teams played each other in Week 8, Robinson had a solid game on the perimeter. The veteran wide receiver posted six receptions (seven targets) for 87 yards and a touchdown. Robinson also scored 20.7 fantasy points in the team’s 26-23 overtime loss.
Meanwhile, Mooney also had a touchdown in the game, which was a part of his five receptions for 69 yards. The rookie wideout scored 17.9 fantasy points, which was the second-best performance this season.
Lastly, Miller had eight receptions for 73 yards, which equaled out to 15.3 fantasy points. But since that performance, he’s only scored in double-digits one more time (10.9 in Week 13). Between the three wide receivers, the best two options for Sunday would be Robinson, who is Trubisky’s go-to. And Mooney, who can provide a big play through the air with his speed.
