Lions | Alshon Jeffery on Detroit wish list?

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 21:53:05 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery is tops on the wish list of the Detroit Lions if WR Calvin Johnson elects to retire. However, the Bears could use the franchise tag or sign Jeffery to an extension before he reaches free agency, so Jeffery to the Lions is considered a long shot.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery has struggled with injuries in his career, but he has 252 catches, 3,728 yards and 24 touchdowns in his first four NFL seasons. He is a fantasy stud regardless of where he plays his football in 2016 as long as he can stay healthy.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery likely to return

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 11:09:24 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is too valuable to not re-sign with the Bears this offseason, according to ESPNChicago.com's Jeff Dickerson. Dickerson said Chicago can't afford to let Jeffery leave, especially since they drafted and developed him. If Jeffery and the Bears can't agree on a deal, then Jeffery could receive the franchise tag.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery is coming off an injury-plagued 2015 season, but he was dynamite when he played, and he was extremely productive in the two previous seasons in which he was healthy. The injuries are a concern, but Jeffery is a fringe WR1 when healthy.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery's future in CHI up in air

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 19:50:58 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery, a restricted free agent, might have the franchise tag applied to him in the offseason. He was limited to nine games in 2015 due to injury, and the team may not be comfortable giving him a long-term deal. He still posted 54 receptions for 807 yards and four touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery is a talented receiver, and perhaps one of the best fantasy options in the league when he is healthy. There is a lot of uncertainty with his future, and it's also uncertain if Jay Cutler will be his quarterback or if Chicago will go another direction. Regardless of his QB, Jeffery is a top-tier fantasy receiver when healthy.

Bears | Long-term deal for Alshon Jeffery?

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 18:49:44 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is a serious candidate to receive a long-term contract offer from the team in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery has dealt with multiple injuries over his career, but he has been productive when he has played. Wherever he ends up in 2016, Jeffrey should be a solid WR2 with upside for fantasy purposes.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery may not return

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 11:36:04 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery may not return in 2016 as the team is unlikely to get involved in a bidding war for him, in the opinion of beat writer Jeff Dickerson.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery will be a WR2 consideration in fantasy next season, but he has to avoid the injury bug that has plagued him the last couple of years.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery to IR

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 08:12:43 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was placed on Injured Reserve Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: His season is over, and Eddie Royal could be viewed as their WR1 in Week 17. Royal ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) caught five passes for just 21 yards last week, but for the price on FantasyScore, he's a decent grab against the Detroit Lions.

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.

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 08:20:55 -0800

Confirming a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) will not play in Week 16's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) did not practice at all during the week, so the fact that he is inactive should not come as a surprise. Eddie Royal ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) could see additional targets this afternoon due to his absence.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) probably will miss the game, but owners should still check the inactive list to see if he has a chance to play. Owners should look for healthier options to use in their lineups this week.
