The Bears started off their season pretty well by scoring two touchdowns, but were eventually thwarted by a swarming Texans defense that seriously limited their opportunities. Brock Osweiler also hit his stride by finding Will Fuller, who finished the game with more than 100 receiving yards and a touchdown. Here are five things that we can learn from the game between the Texans and Bears on Sunday. For more recaps, check out the articles posted here.

1. Will Fuller Should Be Picked up in All Leagues

The Texans wide receiver had more yards than DeAndre Hopkins in week 1 and more fantasy points. Sixteen points in a game as close as this one was is nothing to sneer at, and Fuller should now be taken seriously as a fantasy option. Hopkins was the next leading receiver with just 54 receiving yards, so Osweiler clearly has a good connection with the young wide receiver.

2. As Expected, the Bears Offense Was Really Bad

Earlier in the week, I suggested that the Texans would be one of the highest scoring defenses of week 1. The Bears offense had looked really bad in the preseason and their struggles continued against a Texans team that shut the Bears offense down after some early scoring. Jay Cutler threw a pick and was consistently under pressure, something that will continue to be a trend for the rest of the year.

3. Jeremy Langford Will be the Workhorse for the Bears

The Bears don't look interested in a time share situation at running back. Langford got 17 carries and all the goal line work for the game, a good sign for fantasy owners who want to see production out of Langford. Unfortunately, the Bears offense is so poor that it will likely be playing from behind most of the time, limiting Langford's opportunities for fantasy points. Next week, he will have a much better matchup against the Eagles and should be played in all fantasy leagues thanks to his workload.

4. Eddie Royal, Not Kevin White, is the Bears Second Receiver

Kevin White missed an entire year with an injury after he was drafted. This season, the Bears were expecting White to come back and do some big things with quarterback Jay Cutler. Instead, White managed to catch just three passes for 34 yards during the game. Eddie Royal was far better and caught four passes for 57 yards and a touchdown, scoring 11 fantasy points in the process. Right now, White is the third option for the Bears and he should be dropped in all fantasy leagues.

5. Lamar Miller Plays Extremely Well

The Texans running back had an excellent debut by rushing for more than 100 yards and tacking on an extra 11 yards through the air. His 11 fantasy points are a good sign of future things to come and fantasy owners can certainly expect bigger games in the future. If Miller had scored just one touchdown, he would have been a top five fantasy running back for the week.

That's great news for fantasy owners who were willing to risk a second or even first round pick on the Texans running back.
