Bears | Alshon Jeffery unlikely to be tagged

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 05:38:02 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery is unlikely to receive the franchise tag and will hit the open market.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery's inability to stay healthy has kept him from reaching WR1 status in fantasy the last two years. However, he remains highly productive when he's on the field. He'll be a solid WR2 and could have bounce-back upside on another team.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery will cost pretty penny

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 11:31:45 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery could be given the franchise tag for a second straight year. That tag would cost the Bears $17.5 million. That being said, both sides prefer a long-term deal, according to ESPN.com's Jeff Dickerson.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery will be one of the most coveted free agents on the market this offseason. The Philadelphia Eagles have been one team mentioned as a possible suitor. His fantasy value is difficult to gauge since we don't yet know where he'll be playing. It's likely that he'll be a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2, though.

Eagles | Eagles targeting Alshon Jeffery

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 12:58:10 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery has drawn interest from the Philadelphia Eagles, according to "several league sources."

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery is about to become a free agent and it would make a lot of sense that he's linked to Philadelphia, who desperately need to add a big-time receiver for rising young quarterback Carson Wentz. The five-year veteran endured his most disappointing campaign since his rookie season, marred by a four-game PED-related suspension, but could be an outstanding buy-low candidate across all leagues if he were to end up an Eagle. Jeffery is still capable of at least providing WR2 value.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery took care of body

Sat, 04 Feb 2017 20:03:00 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery did "a good job taking care of his body" during the 2016 season, according to general manager Ryan Pace. "I saw how he worked and how he prepared and kind of where his focus has been and his mindset," Pace said.

Fantasy Tip: There is a chance Jeffery ends up back in Chicago, but no matter he plays in 2017, he is going to be a high-risk, high-reward option for fantasy owners. If you can grab him for a low-end WR2 price, he is well worth the gamble.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery invisible in finale

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 21:18:50 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery posted just one reception for 10 yards on three targets in the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Langford posted 52 grabs for 821 yards and just two touchdowns while also incurring a four-game suspension along the way in a contract year. His outlook is rather murky, as it's uncertain if he'll be back in Chicago or playing elsewhere. However, he still has WR1 ability in fantasy leagues in 2017 in the right situation.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery back from suspension

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 17:25:37 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery posted six receptions for 89 yards and a touchdown in the Week 15 game against the Green Bay Packers in his first game back from a four-game suspension.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery was third on the team in receiving yardage, but he was the only one between Deonte Thompson and Cameron Meredith to find the end zone. He remains a decent WR2 in most fantasy leagues heading into the final two regular season games.
