Bears | Chicago negotiating with Alshon Jeffery

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 11:26:18 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery continues to negotiate a long-term deal with the team, according to general manager Ryan Pace.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery remains away from the team during voluntary workouts as he rehabs from his injuries last year. He should be good to go for training camp later this year, and Jeffery remains one of the more explosive wideouts when he's healthy. View him as a WR1 worth taking in the early rounds.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery not working out

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:54:59 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not show up for offseason workouts, according to a source. He is training in South Florida, according to a source, with the Bears' permission. Jeffery has already signed his franchise tag and is training in order to fix the soft tissue problems in his hamstring that plagued him in 2015. He is expected to report for mandatory minicamp from June 14 to June 16, if not sooner, according to the source.

Fantasy Tip: Being at full health is the primary concern for Jeffery and the Bears this offseason. He's one of the best wide receivers in the NFL when he's fully healthy, and he should still be viewed as a WR1 heading into 2016 fantasy drafts.

Bears | Possible numbers for Alshon Jeffery deal

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 17:09:21 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is expected to seek a deal upwards of five years and $55 million, which is the deal Kansas City Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin signed when he joined the Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery is easily the best offensive weapon the Bears have with Matt Forte now out of town. He had trouble staying on the field last season, but he's worth the money when he is healthy. Draft him as a WR1 again this year.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery makes a difference

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 13:32:01 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery and the Bears averaged 6.0 yards per play in 2015 when Jeffery was on the field. They averaged 4.8 yards per play when he was not on the field.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery has big-play ability and has proven to be one of the best wide receivers in the NFL when he's healthy, as stated previously. There is an injury risk with Jeffery, but he's still worth drafting as a top-12 fantasy wide receiver.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery deal not expected soon

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 12:57:05 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is not expected to receive a long-term deal anytime soon as there is still distance to cover in negotiations. Jeffery received the franchise tag Monday, Feb. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Tagging Jeffery gave the Bears a few more months to negotiate a long-term deal for Jeffery. In the meantime, he remains one of the best wide receivers on the real gridiron and on the fake gridiron. He missed several games last season, but he was still one of the top wide receivers in fantasy points per game.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery tagged

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 12:13:43 -0800

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery has received the non-exclusive franchise tag, according to a source, after a long-term deal could not be settled despite multiple discussions with Jeffery's agent during the NFL Scouting Combine. Other teams can sign Jeffery to an offer sheet, but the Bears can match it or let him go and receive draft picks in return.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery is more than likely returning to Chicago for at least one more season. As stated earlier, He's a No. 1 fantasy wide receiver when he's fully healthy.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery talks ongoing

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 12:03:26 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery is still involved in ongoing talks with the Bears regarding a long-term deal. Both a long-term deal and the franchise tag are still in play.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery should stay with Chicago one way or another. He's the biggest name in the free-agent wide receiver group this offseason, but the Bears won't let their best returning offensive player hit the free-agent market. Good health avoided Jeffery for the better part of last season, but he's a WR1 when healthy.

Fri, 26 Feb 2016 11:22:08 -0800

Bears | Alshon Jeffery expected back in Chicago

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 09:38:11 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery is expected to remain in Chicago for the 2016 season, and general manager Ryan Pace said Wednesday, Feb. 24, the franchise tag is still an option. "We're actively and aggressively negotiating right now," Pace said. "We understand the deadline is Tuesday for the franchise tag. That's an option. We have until Tuesday to make that decision. But right now that's ongoing. But, no, that option (the franchise tag) is still on the table."

Fantasy Tip: It was just three seasons ago when Jeffery was a late-round flyer or waiver pickup who delighted fantasy owners. He averaged 87 receptions for 1,277 yards and 8.5 touchdowns in 2013-14 before injuries dogged him for much of 2015. TE Martellus Bennett and RB Matt Forte are likely gone, which means Jeffery could receive as many targets as he can handle. If you missed out on the stud receivers, landing him as a low-end WR1 would be an excellent consolation.
