Bears | Brian Hoyer concerned about chemistry?

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 19:38:56 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer has pointed out throughout the week that he has not had many reps with WR Alshon Jeffery this season.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the lack of reps, you can expect Hoyer to look Jeffery's way early and often against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3, assuming Jeffery can play through a knee injury. If Jeffery is on the field, he has WR2 upside in all formats.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery limited Friday

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 11:10:57 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee) got in a limited practice Friday, Sept. 23, and will likely be deemed questionable for Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery did not practice Thursday after being limited Wednesday, so this appears to be a legitimate questionable tag. While he is expected to play, owners will be in a bind if he can't as Chicago plays Sunday night. Eddie Royal is a logical replacement who is available in many leagues. Jeffery will also likely be catching passes from Brian Hoyer for the foreseeable future. Consider Jeffery a dice-roll WR2 this week.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery does not practice

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 12:24:45 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if Jeffery will be able to practice Friday, Sept. 23, before making any decisions on their starting lineup. His value probably will take a hit if he plays because Brian Hoyer is expected to start at quarterback. Jeffery is a risky option for owners at this point but could still be a starting candidate in some leagues.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery limited

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 11:44:59 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery's status for Week 3 will be known later in the week, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He may lose a little value if Jay Cutler is not able to play but should still be considered a starting option if he is active.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery just misses triple digits

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 21:39:20 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery finished with five receptions for a game-high 96 yards in the Week 2 game against the Chicago Bears Monday, Sept. 19. He was targeted seven times.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery is playing for a big payday this season, and that extra motivation is great news for his fantasy owners. Unfortunately, Jay Cutler left the game with a hand injury and his production went downhill shortly thereafter. Cutler isn't great, but if Jeffery is going to have great success he needs Cutler, not Brian Hoyer.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery goes over 100 yards

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 21:47:29 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery posted four receptions for a team-high 105 yards in Week 1 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery remains a WR1 in all fantasy formats, and he'll be even better if Kevin White, or even Eddie Royal, can give the team something for opposing defenses to worry about.

Bears | Kevin White impressing Alshon Jeffery

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 19:37:48 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery said WR Kevin White is making strides and making plays. "He missed the whole year last year, so this year he's progressing right where we need him to be," Jeffery said.

Fantasy Tip: White has the physical skills to develop into a star, and lining up across from Jeffery should give him plenty of chances to make plays. He is a high-upside WR4.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery iffy for preseason opener

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 10:14:58 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is uncertain for the preseason opener against the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: While he returned to practice in a limited fashion this week, Jeffery won't be thrust into game action if he isn't 100% ready. He remains a risky WR1 and ideal secondary option in fantasy.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery returns

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 08:51:01 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 8, but his workload is yet to be determined.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery's injury issues are one of the major things that have kept him out of the WR1 club in fantasy. He remains a high-end WR2, but he has the upside of a contract year.

Bears | Four Chicago pass catchers sitting out

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 11:52:53 -0700

Chicago Bears WRs Alshon Jeffery (hamstring), Kevin White (rest), Eddie Royal (concussion) and TE Zach Miller (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Aug. 5. Head coach John Fox said it was a scheduled day off for White, and Fox noted both Royal and Miller are improving.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to view Jeffery as a fringe No. 1 receiver worth grabbing any time into Round 2 of drafts, whereas White is an upside candidate to target into the middle rounds as your No. 3 or No. 4 wide receiver. Miller is a late-round option after a decent finish to 2015 (31 receptions, 404 yards and five touchdowns over the final eight games). At this point, Royal is a low-end option in deep leagues.
