News: With Jared Allen out with pneumonia Sunday, Young will make his first start of the season against the Packers. Impact: Even in a part-time role this season, Young has been the team's top pass rusher, picking up 12 tackles and four sacks over his first three games. With a heavy load of snaps likely headed his way Sunday, Young may be a sneakily-effective IDP option against a suspect Packers offensive line.(RotoWire, )

News: Young amassed four tackles and a sack in Monday's win over the Jets. Impact: Young has managed to post that same stat line in each of his three games, with the exception of his two-sack performance in Week 2. The 12 tackles and four sacks amount to incredible production for a player who isn't even a starter for the Bears, and it's probably time that those in IDP leagues take notice. The Bears' willingness to use Young frequently on passing downs should continue to afford him opportunities to pick up sacks, especially as opposing offensive lines focus most of their attention on double-teaming stalwart Jared Allen on the other side of the field.(RotoWire, )
