Boom or Bust Candidates: Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears

Week 9 boom: Jamaal Williams – MEH
Week 9 bust: Jared Goff – HIT

Boom: Amon-Ra St. Brown
It seems as if every receiver posts a phenomenal game against the Chicago Bears defense as of late. The lack of a pass rush has been extremely challenging for the Bears secondary, which will benefit Amon-Ra St. Brown the most. St. Brown’s hot start has cooled down due to injuries, but he should get back on track in a very favorable matchup.

Bust: Malcolm Rodriguez
The Lions’ rookie linebackers could be in for a tough day if he is constantly chasing Justin Fields. Fields set an NFL record last week for most rushing yards in a single game by a quarterback, causing extreme distress for the Miami Dolphin’ defense. Teams are likely to put on a spy on Fields going forward, a role which Rodriguez could take up. Fields’ outstanding athleticism may be too much for Rodriguez.
