Volpe’s NFL Showdown Plays – 10/5/23: Bears at Commanders

? Sunday Night Showdown – 10/5/23 ?
Bears @ Commanders | 8:15 PM EST
Commanders -6 | Over/Under 44.5

The Bears have lost 12 consecutive games and have not covered in their last seven games. They will be without two of their best defensive players in their secondary in Eddie Jackson and Jaylon Johnson. The Bears have allowed the second most fantasy points to running backs and second most touchdowns to quarterbacks with 10 passing TDs. The Commanders match up well at home against a weak Bears Defense.


Notable News ⭐
  • The Commanders rank 1st against TEs, allowing 5.8 FPPG.
  • The Commanders play zone 75% of the time, where DJ Moore has 16 of his 19 receptions. Chicago should move him to be matched up with Forbes enough and Fields looks his way first.
  • The Bears play the fifth-most zone (84%) in the league because they don’t have much talent to cover. McLaurin has a 18.5% target rate vs. zone and Dotson has a 19.3% target rate vs. zone, but Dotson has only generated 0.25 fantasy points vs. zone.
