Offensive Line Fantasy Value of the Chicago Bears

Jay Cutler would ask if there was any “Offensive Line Value of the Bears.”  In fact he didn’t try to deny that the O-Line was poor when asked last year. When he and Running Back Matt Forte got injured there almost was no “Offensive Line Fantasy Value.” The O-Line of the Bears has been a very much maligned group since 2009.  Since 2009, they have allowed the most sacks...
