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.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery out of practice

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 07:42:49 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (undisclosed) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery left practice early yesterday due to muscle tightness, which sounds minor. Jeffery is on the cusp of being a WR1, but his health hasn't allowed him to reach that pinnacle. He's a high-end WR2 in fantasy with the upside of a contract year.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery doesn't finish practice

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 11:30:52 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (undisclosed) did not finish practice because of muscle tightness Wednesday, Aug. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery was limited to just nine games last year, so fantasy owners want to see him healthy leading into the season. View Jeffery as a fringe No. 1 receiver, and he has averaged six catches and 82 yards per game over the past three years with 21 touchdowns in 41 outings. Check back for updates, but there isn't any reason to push the panic button at this point.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery mum on contract talks

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 13:10:21 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery did not engage in discussing his failed big to secure a long-term contract Thursday, July 28. "Right now I'm in the process ... I'm focusing on football," Jeffery said. "I'm just focused on this year. Anything else will take care of itself."

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery is a fringe No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues and should be targeted beginning in the middle of Round 2 of drafts. He's the No. 1 target in the offense and has averaged six catches and 82 yards per game over the past three years with 21 touchdowns in 41 outings. The lack of a long-term deal could serve as motivation for a career year and a big pay day for Jeffery, too.

Bears | Chicago not sold on Alshon Jeffery?

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 10:53:07 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery and the Bears did not agree to a long-term deal before the deadline Friday, July 15. ESPNChicago.com's Jeff Dickerson said the disconnect between both sides is obvious, and he questioned if the Bears view Jeffery as a No. 1 wide receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Even though a deal was not done, Jeffery is still easily the Bears' best pass-catcher. When healthy, Jeffery is a WR1 and should be drafted as such in all fantasy formats.

Bears | No long-term deal for Alshon Jeffery

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 13:12:32 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery did not receive a long-term deal Friday, July 15, and will play under the one-year franchise tag.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery will be the team's No. 1 receiver in 2016 as long as he can stay healthy. He was limited to nine games in 2015 but was still able to record 807 yards and four touchdowns. Jeffery should be an early-round pick in most fantasy drafts this season.

Bears | No Alshon Jeffery deal in sight

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 06:36:11 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery would have to dramatically decrease his salary expectations for a long-term deal to be completed by the July 15 deadline for franchise-tagged players. The scenario is unlikely to happen.

Fantasy Tip: On the bright side, he'll be a contract-year player this fantasy season with his sights set on a WR1 contract. He'll have to prove he can stay healthy and be a WR1, but he's a safer WR2 in the fantasy spectrum.
