Dan Bailey, Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears
This will not be an easy season closer for the Vikings as the Bears defense has been a dominant force in 2018, especially when it’s at full health. Meanwhile the offense for Minnesota has been inconsistent, and Kirk Cousins has run hot and cold in his first season with the Vikes. Bailey has been steady but not flawless and after weeks of being irrelevant on the fantasy radar, he’s put together two solid weeks with multiple field goal games. As stingy as the Bears can be, they’ve given up at least eight fantasy points in four straight games, to opposing kickers in scoring setups where bonus points are awarded. That includes three games where the opposing kicker has converted three field goals plus whatever else they’re able to tack on in extra points. This game is expected to run close meaning the kickers will factor heavily in the game.
