Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford left some yards on the field in Week 1 versus the Houston Texans, according to head coach John Fox.
"Well, I think we blocked up some runs pretty well. That's not an easy defense to run against, but I think there were some yards there, yards after the carry, I mean, yards after contact," Fox said.
Fantasy Tip: Langford posted the NFL's worst yards-after-contact average last season, which was a primary reason why the Bears drafted Jordan Howard this spring. Langford showed improvement in that area in the preseason and will probably get a bit more leash as the featured back before Fox considers going back to his preferred committee approach. Nevertheless, that looming threat may be enough reason for owners to consider trading him away sooner than later. For now, he's a solid RB2.

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 23:46:57 -0700
Chicago Bears coach John Fox is not sure whether TE Martellus Bennett will be at mandatory minicamp when it opens shortly. Bennett is pushing for a raise from the $4.9 million base he's scheduled to earn in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Now things could get serious for Bennett. The team can fine him if he misses the June 16-18 camp, so this situation bears watching. Bennett will be a decent TE2 presence in most fantasy drafts, but if he intends to hold out for a new deal it could get dicey.
Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:43:05 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler did not receive a vote of confidence from head coach John Fox. Fox said the team is still evaluating the position. Fox said he wants to get to know Cutler as part of that evaluation. "We're not up against a deadline," Fox said. "My experience has always been that you need to gather the information and in turn, you usually make better decisions. We're in that process, and we'll keep you posted."
Fantasy Tip: There is still a chance that Cutler could be traded before the beginning of next season. He should be considered a QB2 wherever he ends up, and a solid FantasyScore play when the matchup and price is favorable.

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 11:17:58 -0800
The Chicago Bears have hired former Denver Broncos head coach John Fox as their new head coach, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: The hire of Fox should help Matt Forte since the team likely will look to run the ball under their new head coach. Jay Cutler's fantasy value likely will depend on who is hired as the offensive coordinator, so owners should monitor the assistant coaches the Bears hire over the next few weeks.

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 14:13:20 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Fox's departure could affect Peyton Manning's decision on whether he will retire or continue his playing career, so owners should watch for Manning's decision in the next weeks or months. If Manning does not return, it will hurt the fantasy value of most of the receivers on the team. Manning likely would still be a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues if he decides to return.

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said RB Ronnie Hillman was going back into the game to eventually score a touchdown, and a game of rock-paper-scissors was not going to dictate who went into the game. "That's just little stuff that people like to get on TV and have something to talk about," Fox said Tuesday. "Ronnie Hillman was going back in the game. That was just a little way to have fun, I guess. That wasn't official. Ronnie was running the ball. We decide that, not them."
Tue, 27 Aug 2013 15:13:59 -0700
Denver Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman was running with the first team in practice Tuesday, Aug. 27. Head coach John Fox said not to read into RB Montee Ball taking first-team reps Monday, Aug. 26, even though he also took some turns with the starters Tuesday. Ball's starter work Monday might have had something to do with Hillman's preseason fumbling issues. The Broncos had Hillman carrying a football between reps the last few days.
Fantasy Tip: Denver is trying to condition Hillman into an every-down mentality with their focus on him protecting the ball. This remains a messy fantasy backfield; none of these options opens the season as anything more than a flex play. Even Knowshon Moreno would be a decent speculation for your bench. All things equal, Ball presents the best makeup to take over eventually, but the path there could take a long time.
Mon, 26 Aug 2013 23:42:35 -0700
Denver Broncos coach John Fox told reporters he had not lost faith in RB Ronnie Hillman despite his tendency to cough up the ball. Hillman had two fumbles returned for touchdowns in preseason games. Still, RB Montee Ball took more snaps with the No. 1 squad Monday, Aug. 26, and Fox cautioned not to read anything. "It's just practice," Fox said. "I wouldn't read too much into anything. We're evaluating everybody regardless of who gets what reps at what numbers. He's a guy that we want to get touches and we'll go from there."
