Bears | Alshon Jeffery having great season

Thu, 24 Oct 2013 15:34:09 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is tied with Denver Broncos WR Eric Decker for the most receiving yards in the league in the last five weeks, with 561. Jeffery leads his team in yards over WR Brandon Marshall (540).

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery has been one of the nice suprises for fantasy owners this year, but his value may have already reached its peak now that Jay Cutler (groin) is out. Jeffery is unlikely to be as productive with Josh McCown running the offense.

Bears | Jay Cutler may have serious injury

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 10:19:37 -0700

The Chicago Bears are awaiting the MRI results on Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (groin) Monday, Oct. 21, and they are bracing themselves for bad news. Cutler could be out for most of the remaining 10 weeks of the season if it's a serious groin injury. QB Josh McCown would take over for Cutler if he has to miss any time. The Bears would likely re-sign QB Jordan Palmer to back up McCown.

Fantasy Tip: If you own Cutler, starting making plans to add another quarterback. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, as well as Martellus Bennett, will likely suffer if Cutler misses most of the rest of the year.

Bears | Brandon Marshall taken out of game

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 09:53:31 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall caught just four passes for 30 yards in the team's Week 5 loss to the New Orleans Saints, and QB Jay Cutler targeted him only five times. The Saints double covered Marshall for the majority of the game. "They weren't going to let him have a good day," Cutler said of New Orleans' defense. "They decided, 'Hey, it's not going to happen.' They were going to take him out of the ball game. He still made some plays for us. He might be frustrated, but we just have to keep getting better and better, and he understands that."

Marshall voiced some frustration over his role as a decoy, but head coach Marc Trestman said: "I want to get Brandon the ball. We want to get Brandon the ball. There were a couple of shots early. Jay looked back and he was open a couple of times, then protection got in his face and he was forced to move, which was disappointing. That starts with me. I've got to do a better job of getting him involved."

Fantasy Tip: Opposing defenses are starting to take Marshall out of the game with double teams, freeing up more looks for Alshon Jeffery and Matt Forte. Marshall won't be held down forever, but there will be more frustrating games like this in the future.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery breaks team record

Sun, 06 Oct 2013 15:23:50 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery had 10 receptions for 218 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the New Orleans Saints. He set the franchise record with the yardage mark. The previous mark was 214 yards set by WR Harlong Hill in 1954.

Fantasy Tip: No one saw this giant performance coming. Despite the huge stat line, Jeffery remains more of a WR3/4 or flex play in most fantasy formats going forward.

Bears | Brandon Marshall won't be limited

Wed, 24 Jul 2013 15:36:07 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (hip) expects to have a full workload during training camp, which begins Friday, July 26. WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring), who missed organized team activities in June with a pulled hamstring, is also expected to be fully healthy. "No limitations," Marshall said, "but we're gonna be smart. I'm going on my eighth year, (have) had a few hip surgeries, nothing major. But at the same time, we start playing games in September. So that's what I'm preparing for. It's important to get out there with your teammates, build that chemistry, learn the offense, get reps. But at the same time, if I'm not healthy, all that doesn't matter. So I'm going to listen to my body, and go as it tells me."

Bears | Three locks at WR, open after that

Tue, 23 Jul 2013 08:18:40 -0700

Chicago Bears WRs Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Earl Bennett are locks for the 53-man roster, but after that it is wide open. WRs Joe Anderson and Eric Weems might lock up a fourth receiver job, and could be battling each other since they are each solid on special teams. WR Devin Aromashodu is in the mix for a job, and then there is seventh-round pick Marquess Wilson and WR Devin Hester, who is more known for his prowess as a return man. The team is likely to keep five receivers plus Hester.

Mentally he's been locked in since we got started," receivers coach Mike Groh said Friday, June 14. "He's made good improvement on the field with things (we) wanted to work on, and in terms of grasp of offense, he's where he should be."

Bears | Brandon Marshall mentors Alshon Jeffery

Sun, 21 Apr 2013 20:48:07 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery accepted an invitation to train with WR Brandon Marshall in South Florida at Fit Speed Athletic Performance, a training facility co-founded by Marshall and his longtime trainer. "I just wanted to learn from someone different and do thing different," Jeffery said Sunday, April 21. "Plus, he's a Pro Bowl player. I want to see what it takes." When he arrived at Fit Speed, Jeffery weighed in at 225 pounds with a body fat percentage of 11 or 12 percent. When he checked out a few weeks ago, Jeffery weighed 219 pounds with eight percent body fat.

Fantasy Tip: The dedication and hard work is good news for Jeffery, as conditioning was one of the biggest knocks on him coming out of South Carolina. He has big-play ability, and could be a solid WR2/3 or flex fantasy option in 2013 if he continues to work hard.

Bears | Penalties affecting Alshon Jeffery?

Sat, 22 Dec 2012 05:47:51 -0800

The Chicago Bears coaching staff is concerned WR Alshon Jeffery's play could be affected by three offensive pass interference penalties in Week 15. The team does not want Jeffery to change the way he plays. "The thing I'm trying to make sure of is that it doesn't destroy him from a mental standpoint," said receivers coach Darryl Drake. "He's fragile right now but that's part of it ... Are you going to sit back and sulk or are you going to do something about it? You've still got to play the game physical so you can't give in on that. You have to turn it into something positive."
