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.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery deal unlikely

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 05:58:56 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is far apart in talks on a long-term deal, and there isn't much optimism a deal will get done. "I sense that both sides really don't feel strongly about this one," said NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. "That's because Jeffery's got a $14.6 million tag. The Bears wanted to come in a couple of million below that."

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery's health has been a question with nagging injuries. He had a 54-807-4 line in nine games last season and he's a threat when he's on the field. He's a safer WR2 in fantasy.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery makes progress on deal

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 09:38:56 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery has continued to talk about a long-term contract, and a new deal is possible for the receiver, who received the franchise tag.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery's health has been sketchy, but he's a big target in the red zone. The parts are changing around him, and the depth chart is pretty thin behind him. He's a high-end WR2 in fantasy with some health risk.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery plans to report

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 15:57:31 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery said he plans to report to training camp on time. Jeffery is participating in minicamp, but did not report for organized team activities earlier this month. He is awaiting a long-term contract agreement.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't look like a serious holdout is in the works from Jeffery. The main question should be his health, as he missed significant time last season with injuries. Assuming he's good to go for the start of the regular season, he's worth selecting as a low-end WR1.

He will be the main target in the passing game this season and should be one of the better fantasy receivers in 2016. Jeffery likely will be selected in the early rounds of drafts and will be a weekly starting candidate.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery not present

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 10:10:50 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery was absent at organized team activities Wednesday, June 1, and he continues to stay away from the team facility to train in South Florida. Jeffery already signed his franchise tag tender and is expected to rejoin the team for the veteran mandatory minicamp beginning June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery played in just nine games last year due to injury, but he still managed 54 catches for 807 yards and four touchdowns. Fantasy owners may be a bit down on him coming off his injury woes, but when healthy, he's a surefire WR1 with Jay Cutler throwing him passes.
