Chicago Bears week 8 fantasy football review

If there is one thing Week 8 proved to fantasy owners, it's that you really can't trust Jay Cutler.

However, the Falcons still haven’t really played anyone that’s any good and they almost lost at home to the Raiders. The Bears’ one loss was on Thursday Night and...
