NFL | Four teams interested in Marc Mariani

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 21:39:30 -0800

Free-agent WR Marc Mariani (Bears) is a hot property, as sources indicate at least four teams are interested in in his services.

Fantasy Tip: Mariani isn't much of a receiver, but he is a special teams guy who can help out in the return game.

Bears | Joshua Bellamy, Marc Mariani produce

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 19:53:05 -0800

Chicago Bears WRs Josh Bellamy posted three receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Detroit Lions, while WR Marc Mariani had six receptions for 80 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Bellamy and Mariani were getting a chance to shine with Alshon Jeffery sidelined, but going into 2016 they aren't likely to have much value. Mariani is more of a special teams maven, while Bellamy will be a depth player only.

Bears | Trio of receivers do little for Chicago

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 18:36:04 -0800

Chicago Bears WRs Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani and Eddie Royal were the top wide receivers in Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) sidelined. It was Mariani leading the way with 32 yards on two grabs, with Royal posting five catches for 21 yards and Bellamy just two catches for 10 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The trio did nothing for FantasyScore owners, and killed the value of Jay Cutler in the process. If Jeffery is again sidelined in Week 17, avoid the Chicago passing offense options completely.

Bears | Eddie Royal questionable

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 15:44:10 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (knee) did not practice all week but is questionable for Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers. However, it's unusual for a player to suit up after missing an entire week of practice. With WR Marquess Wilson (foot) also out, WRs Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani and Cameron Meredith might be asked to contribute more.

Fantasy Tip: Don't count on Royal ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) to return this weekend. With Wilson out, Alshon Jeffery ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) is worth every penny against a weak Niners defense. Martellus Bennett ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) is also very attractive with Zach Miller questionable to play.

Bears | Chicago looking for WRs

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 14:33:31 -0800

The Chicago Bears are unlikely to use the seventh overall pick of the NFL Draft on a wide receiver, but the upcoming class of receivers gives them many options to complement WR Alshon Jeffery. They could look to University of Miami WR Phillip Dorsett, who ran a 4.33-second 40-yard dash in the second round. The Bears also hosted free-agent WR Brian Hartline (Dolphins) for a visit this week. After trading WR Brandon Marshall, the current roster features WRs Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani, Josh Morgan and Marquess Wilson. Jeffery may be moved to the No. 1 receiver role, but he averaged just four catches in the last three games with Marshall injured in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery should still be fine in Chicago, but Jay Cutler's status with the team may also be in question, further muddling the picture. Jeffery should be a safe top-end WR2, at worst. Counting on him as a top WR1 may be too much, though, since he could struggle to be consistent if the Bears don't give him receiving help around him.

Titans | Kick return competition in high gear

Sat, 16 Aug 2014 23:44:12 -0700
