Lions vs. Bears fantasy preview: Who to start, who to sit and sleepers to watch on Thanksgiving
ALLEN PARK -- The Detroit Lions (0-9-1) and Chicago Bears (3-7) feature two of the most toothless offenses around heading into Thanksgiving. Swift ran 33 times for 130 yards, making him the first Lions running back to notch consecutive 100-yard games in 17 years. The third-year tight end is worth an unquestioned start, no matter if it’s Jared Goff or Tim Boyle starting on Thanksgiving. If Allen Robinson is active for Thanksgiving, start him too.

Bears WR Marquise Goodwin has another shot at making U.S. Olympic team in the long jump
Chicago Bears wide receiver Marquise Goodwin has another shot at qualifying for the U.S. Olympic team in the long jump after making it in 2012 and narrowly missing the cut in 2016. Goodwin placed 10th of 12 finalists in the 2012 games, failing to make the team the next time around. However, it’s worth noting that shortly after missing out on making the squad in 2016, Goodwin took home silver in the long jump at the 2015 Pan Am Games. He previously won two NCAA championships while at the University of Texas in the long jump, so the accolades are there. “Anytime you have an Olympic mentality, you are different,” Bears coach Matt Nagy said of the receiver per NFL.com.mlive.com
