Every week of the 2015 Chicago Bears season, Chicago Sun-Times Sports will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the 1985 Bears by speaking with players from the team including Jimbo Covert, Dan Hampton, Dennis McKinnon and Otis Wilson.
With fantasy football already having the nation’s attention, and daily fantasy sports now fully-immersed in the mainstream, Sun-Times Sports asked two former members of the 1985 Chicago Bears about their fantasy football habits.
“My fantasy as a player was that I got a chance to play in the National Football League,” Dennis McKinnon said. “That was my dream come true. That was my true fantasy.”
Jimbo Covert shared a similar view.
“I do watch the games,” Covert said. “I like to see the performance of the teams and that’s a lot of fun for me. On Sunday, I just kind of sit on the couch and scroll through the games.”
