The stunning news Monday was the firing of 49ers OC Jimmy Raye, which took place about 16 hours after he was given a vote of confidence by head coach Mike Singletary, a move that raises several questions.

Here is the thing that gets overlooked in a game like the Titans blowout of the Raiders. RB Darren McFadden actually had a good game. Seriously. Well, at least fantasy wise.
Is Bears RB Matt Forte a good start against the Lions? NFL.com fantasy editor Michael Fabiano admits that he has some sort of Pavlovian response when his players face the Lions. But that might have made sense in the past. Add in new coordinator Mike Martz and Forte looks like an excellent start.
Bears QB Jay Cutler is pulling a misdirection play.
The fantasy value of Greg Olsen took a tremendous hit once Mike Martz became the Bears offensive coordinator. Martz’s offenses use a tight end the same way that Tony Dungy uses blue language. So with Martz’s hiring, we lost a possible breakout fantasy tight end.
Or did we?
The Bears offense is like the sun. Use precaution, and you could get a nice warming glow. Move haphazardly, and you will end up burned.

There’s a school of thought that it’s truly do-or-die for coach Lovie Smith and the Chicago Bears in 2010. Brian Urlacher told ‘NFL Total Access” the team knows changes will happen if the wins don’t.
Most Bears fans — and fantasy enthusiasts, too — are hoping that Devin Hester could develop into a true No. 1 receiver.

Can the Bears finally produce a 1,000-yard receiver this season?

Don Coryell was always known as “Air Coryell,” and rightfully so.

Vincent Jackson is a physical, big (6-foot-5) game breaker of a receiver. Who would not want him?
Well the Chargers for one.
Keeper deadlines are approaching so we kick around some basic keeper strategies. Write this down and remember it: keep the good players, dump the bad ones. So what does that mean for Matt Forte?
Brett Favre and Jay Cutler might be the most talked-about quarterbacks in the NFC North (sorry, Aaron Rodgers), but how will they fare next season?
