Orton wins Chicago Starting Quarterback Job

According the Chicago Sun-Times, Kyle Orton will be the Bears' Opening Day quarterback.

Which only tells you which Chicago QB you should not be drafting. Orton looked better than Grossman so far, but his yards per pass is awful and he doesn't bring much upside to the table.

Still, he's the guy right now and it should merely remind us that at the end of the day, Chicago will struggle to give us any fantasy value through the air. Hester and Greg Olson might break out, but I would suggest staying away. Even Matt Forte is shaky when he's going to face stacked run D's all season.

More later, but thought you might like the breaking news...
