The Green Bay Packers look to start locking up an NFC North title when they host the Chicago Bears in Week 14's Sunday Night Football action. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Packers as massive 11.5-point home favorites in this NFC North clash.

If you need some help with your fantasy lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Week 14 showdown.

David Montgomery Fantasy

Start David Montgomery, RB, Chicago Bears: David Montgomery has been extremely effective and posted RB21 PPR numbers since returning from injury in Week 9. He's the most reliable fantasy player on the Bears roster and could be in for a big night against Green Bay's rush defense, which ranks just 27th in Football Outsiders' run defense DVOA metric. The 11.5-point spread doesn't entail a great running game script, but Chicago rushes the ball at the fourth-highest clip in the NFL (49.4%). Plus, Montgomery is fresh off a 21-rush, 90-yard, 1-TD (RB3) performance in Week 13 and we're going to keep riding the hot hand.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling Fantasy

Start Marquez Valdes-Scantling, RB, Green Bay Packers: Fantasy managers will obviously start Davante Adams, Aaron Jones and Aaron Rodgers in Week 14, but Marquez Valdes-Scantling is another Packer to consider. He re-took his spot in the starting lineup Week 11, resulting in an enticing 19 targets over the past two weeks. The deep-threat in this offense with a 19.4-yard average depth of target (aDOT), Valdes-Scantling is a boom-or-bust player, but the Bears rank just 22nd in pass-defense DVOA. With Randall Cobb on the IR, the target share will be there for Valdes-Scantling.

Allen Robinson Fantasy

Sit Allen Robinson, WR, Chicago Bears: Allen Robinson will make his return to the Bears' starting lineup, but fantasy managers should keep him on the bench. In what's been a disappointing 2021 campaign, Robinson ranked as just WR53 in his first nine starts of the year. Green Bay's secondary is a borderline elite unit, ranking 10th in Football Outsiders' pass-defense DVOA metric and allowing just 219.2 passing yards per game.

AJ Dillon Fantasy

Sit AJ Dillon, RB, Green Bay Packers: Backup running back AJ Dillon was phenomenal filling in for the injured Aaron Jones in Weeks 10-12. While Dillon operated as RB4 in the span, Jones figures to be fully healthy and take over his starting role again in Week 14. Expect the workload to swing back heavily in Jones favor and leave Dillon on the fantasy bench. Chicago's defense also rates better against the run by allowing the 13th-fewest PPR points to opposing running backs. Prior to Jones' injury in Week 10, Dillon had never played more than 40% of the offensive snaps and saw double-digit opportunities in less than half (4 of 9) of those games.
