    New personnel should help Bears DST in Week 1

    The Bears revamped a terrible defensive line this offseason and brought in several defenders that should work wonders against the run. The new-look line will face a rush-centric test in Week 1 when the Bills come to town. The Bills were a solid matchup for Fantasy DSTs last season, giving up the 12th-most average points in Fantasy. However, it may be difficult finding turnovers and sacks against them in Week 1, as the offense will likely commit to running the ball with C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson. Luckily for the Bears, their rebuilt line now features the best two 4-3 defensive ends against the run last season in Lamarr Houston and Willie Young, per Pro Football Focus. If those guys can play at that same level in Week 1, it should force the Bills into third-and-long situations regularly, allowing Jared Allen to pin his ears back and get after E.J. Manuel, a guy with the second-highest sack percentage among starting quarterbacks when under pressure, per Football Focus. While the Bears DST aren't a lock for a big Fantasy week, they represent a quietly-nice option in Week 1. Both Fantasy experts rank them in the top 10 this week, but they're only owned in roughly three out of every four leagues.
