I just saw that Sean Lee is expected to be back for the Monday night game. He was dropped after his injury so I went ahead and picked up him. What kind of an impact should I expect for his first game back? It would be great to have him pick up where he left off for the fantasy playoffs.

He doesn't have a very good matchup but I think as long as he's playing he should be in starting lineups.

Shadowing Forte out of the backfield doesn't make for a good matchup? :thinking:

 

If Lee's good to go he's a top-10 LB this week with top-5 upside, IMO. :pc:

Since week 7 the Bears haven't been a great matchup...Alec Ogletree & Stephen Tulloch are the only LBs to have more than 6 solos in a game but a bunch more have had 4 or less. I mention solos because the game is in Chicago and in 6 home games opposing LBs have been awarded 12 total assists...that's an average of 2/game. So it's unlikely that there will be many assists to help pad his stat line this week. And to clarify, I didn't say it was a horrible matchup, just that it wasn't a great one. But it's still good enough to warrant starting him, and yes, he absolutely has top 5 upside, which is why you start him...just don't be surprised if he finishes with a 5-1-0 line. Lastly, I've projected him for 7-2-0, 1 FF & 1 PD

 

Here's how LBs have done since week 7:

Audie Cole 4-5-0, 1 PD

Chad Greenway 6-4-0

James Laurinaitis 6-1-0, 1 FR & 1 PD

Alec Ogletree 10-1-0, 1 PD

Daryl Smith 4-2-0

Stephen Tulloch 7-0-0

DeAndre Levy 5-1-0, 1 INT & 1 PD

AJ Hawk 4-4-0

Brad Jones 2-1-0

Perry Riley 4-3-0

London Fletcher 3-1-0

Aside from the GBP and WAS LBs stat lines (which make sense since they're not big play LBs to begin with), I'd say those numbers are pretty solid and indicate a pretty decent matchup, but... :shrug:

 

7/2 with a pass breakup and forced fumble sound like a solid projection for him.
