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.

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 fine with one-year deal

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 17:32:28 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery said he would still like to receive a long-term deal but would be fine with his one-year deal if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement before July 15.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery likely will not hold out during training camp and will be the top target in the team's passing game in 2016. He is one of the better fantasy receivers available and will be an early-round pick in all leagues.

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.

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 10:38:04 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery reported for the start of the mandatory minicamp Monday, June 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery trained in Florida this offseason and did not participate in the organized team activities because of his contract situation. 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.

Bears | Talks between Bears, Alshon Jeffery slow

Thu, 05 May 2016 15:13:50 -0700

Jeffery should be one of the better receivers in 2016 and could be an early-round option in most fantasy drafts.

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.

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 09:03:46 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery signed his franchise tender Tuesday, March 8. Jeffery can still sign a long-term deal by July 15.

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.

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.

Bears | No decision on Alshon Jeffery

Fri, 19 Feb 2016 06:21:14 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery has a chance to hit the open market because the team hasn't made a decision to franchise tag him.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery has battled injuries, which have kept him from being a consistent WR1. The 26-year-old is a high-end WR2 wherever he lands.

Lions | Alshon Jeffery on Detroit wish list?

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 21:53:05 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery is tops on the wish list of the Detroit Lions if WR Calvin Johnson elects to retire. However, the Bears could use the franchise tag or sign Jeffery to an extension before he reaches free agency, so Jeffery to the Lions is considered a long shot.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery has struggled with injuries in his career, but he has 252 catches, 3,728 yards and 24 touchdowns in his first four NFL seasons. He is a fantasy stud regardless of where he plays his football in 2016 as long as he can stay healthy.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery likely to return

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 11:09:24 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is too valuable to not re-sign with the Bears this offseason, according to ESPNChicago.com's Jeff Dickerson. Dickerson said Chicago can't afford to let Jeffery leave, especially since they drafted and developed him. If Jeffery and the Bears can't agree on a deal, then Jeffery could receive the franchise tag.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery is coming off an injury-plagued 2015 season, but he was dynamite when he played, and he was extremely productive in the two previous seasons in which he was healthy. The injuries are a concern, but Jeffery is a fringe WR1 when healthy.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery's future in CHI up in air

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 19:50:58 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery, a restricted free agent, might have the franchise tag applied to him in the offseason. He was limited to nine games in 2015 due to injury, and the team may not be comfortable giving him a long-term deal. He still posted 54 receptions for 807 yards and four touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery is a talented receiver, and perhaps one of the best fantasy options in the league when he is healthy. There is a lot of uncertainty with his future, and it's also uncertain if Jay Cutler will be his quarterback or if Chicago will go another direction. Regardless of his QB, Jeffery is a top-tier fantasy receiver when healthy.

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 18:49:44 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is a serious candidate to receive a long-term contract offer from the team in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery has dealt with multiple injuries over his career, but he has been productive when he has played. Wherever he ends up in 2016, Jeffrey should be a solid WR2 with upside for fantasy purposes.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery may not return

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 11:36:04 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery may not return in 2016 as the team is unlikely to get involved in a bidding war for him, in the opinion of beat writer Jeff Dickerson.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery will be a WR2 consideration in fantasy next season, but he has to avoid the injury bug that has plagued him the last couple of years.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery to IR

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 08:12:43 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was placed on Injured Reserve Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: His season is over, and Eddie Royal could be viewed as their WR1 in Week 17. Royal ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) caught five passes for just 21 yards last week, but for the price on FantasyScore, he's a decent grab against the Detroit Lions.

Bears | Trio of receivers do little for Chicago

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 18:36:04 -0800

Chicago Bears WRs Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani and Eddie Royal were the top wide receivers in Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) sidelined. It was Mariani leading the way with 32 yards on two grabs, with Royal posting five catches for 21 yards and Bellamy just two catches for 10 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The trio did nothing for FantasyScore owners, and killed the value of Jay Cutler in the process. If Jeffery is again sidelined in Week 17, avoid the Chicago passing offense options completely.

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 08:20:55 -0800

Confirming a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) will not play in Week 16's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) did not practice at all during the week, so the fact that he is inactive should not come as a surprise. Eddie Royal ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) could see additional targets this afternoon due to his absence.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and is listed as doubtful for the Week 16 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) probably will miss the game, but owners should still check the inactive list to see if he has a chance to play. Owners should look for healthier options to use in their lineups this week.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery sits again

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 12:35:10 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) has missed two practices in a row now and his status for this weekend's game is starting to look shaky. He has dealt with more than his fair share of injuries this year and even left last week's contest with hamstring tightness. Be prepared to look for another option if you were planning to start Jeffery this week.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery's status uncertain

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 14:43:03 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery's (hamstring) status for the final two games of the season is uncertain, according to head coach John Fox. Jeffery has already missed five games this year with various injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) usually sits out Wednesday practice, so there aren't any red flags just yet. Despite catching only one pass that went for a touchdown last week, Jeffery isn't a bad fantasy selection if he's active in Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a top-10 fantasy matchup for receivers.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery misses practice

Wed, 23 Dec 2015 11:37:56 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) typically rests Wednesdays, so don't be alarmed. Despite catching one of his five targets in Week 15, he managed to score a touchdown and has scored in back-to-back weeks. Jeffery should have a much more productive game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a top-10 matchup for receivers all year long.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery to be evaluated

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) will be evaluated Wednesday, Dec. 23, to see what his availability will be for Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach John Fox.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery has been battling injuries all year but has been productive when on the field. In Week 15, he had only one catch, but it went for a 10-yard score. The Bucs are a nice matchup for receivers, but you'll have to weigh the risks with Jeffery's injury on FantasyScore.

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 12:06:46 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the team's Week 15 game and is considered questionable to return.

Confirming a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf, illness) is active for Week 15's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) had been listed as questionable on the injury report but was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 18. He should be viewed as a WR1 in FantasyScore this week, with a favorable matchup against a shaky Minnesota secondary.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf, illness) isn't worried by his calf injury and said he feels fine for Week 15 against the Minnesota Vikings. "I'm good, boss," Jeffery said.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) may be passed up by a lot of folks since he's questionable, but if he plays, you should consider him. He's been one of the most productive receivers when on the field this year and is going up against a beat up and vulnerable Minnesota secondary.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery, Zach Miller questionable

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 11:14:12 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (calf, illness) and TE Zach Miller (ribs) are both listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Minnesota Vikings. Jeffery returned to practice Friday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good sign that Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) was able to practice Friday, but he may be a game-time decision Sunday morning. Check the inactives before putting him in your daily lineups. If he's playing, he's a solid FantasyScore pick, as he's been one of the most productive receivers this year when health. Miller ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) should be OK barring a setback. Be careful, though, as he's been heavily touchdown-reliant in recent weeks.

Bears | Chicago not concerned with Alshon Jeffery

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 15:05:58 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler isn't concerned that WR Alshon Jeffery (illness, calf) sat out of practice Thursday, Dec. 17. Head coach John Fox said it was the illness that kept Jeffery out Thursday. Jeffery has missed five games with hamstring and groin injuries this year. He's gone over 100 yards receiving four times this year and averages 99.6 yards per game, which ranks fourth in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) has been lights out when he's been on the field, so if he plays against the Minnesota Vikings and their banged up secondary this weekend, he should be a perfectly acceptable pick for your FantasyScore receiving corps.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (illness, calf) missed practice again Thursday, Dec. 17, with an illness after missing practice Wednesday, Dec. 16, with a calf ailment.

Fantasy Tip: Nagging injuries have been the story of Jeffery's ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) 2015 season, but when he's been on the field he's been very productive for his owners. Check back tomorrow on his status, but if he's expected to play, he's not a terrible daily pick against the Minnesota Vikings, who are hurting in the secondary right now.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) has dealt with more than his fair share of injuries this season, especially with his calf. The positive news is that he at least practiced, but he should be monitored over the next few days. It's hard to believe he won't play, though, unless he suffers a setback.

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 12:48:53 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is averaging 100.8 receiving yards per game in 2015, which would rank most in franchise history for a single season.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery has dealt with his fair share of injuries this season, but when he has been on the field he has produced. He has had more time to rest and recover for this week's contest against the San Francisco 49ers, who have not defended receivers well this year. Jeffery should be viewed as a WR1 in Week 13.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery active

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 16:17:38 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (groin, shoulder) is officially active for the Week 12 game against the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) should see his normal workload during the game despite his injuries. Jeffery will be facing a solid Packers offense but could still be a decent starting option in certain leagues.

Bears | Matt Forte, Alshon Jeffery questionable

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 12:21:27 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (knee) and WR Alshon Jeffery (groin, shoulder) are both listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Forte ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) has missed the last three games. It's fair to wonder how much work he'll concede to impressive rookie Jeremy Langford. For that reason alone it's worth passing on Forte in daily formats. Jeffery ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) is a risk/reward pick on FantasyScore. The Bears could be forced to pass early and often, but in a cold contest at less than 100% he could be limited.

Bears | Matt Forte, Alshon Jeffery expected to play

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 14:29:15 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte (knee) and WR Alshon Jeffery (groin) are both expected to suit up in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Nov. 26. Both players said they were feeling fine after practice Tuesday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Forte ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) has missed the last three games, and it's safe to say Jeremy Langford will cut into his workload at least somewhat because of how effective the rookie has been of late. That complicates Forte's daily value and limits return on investment at a lofty price. Jeffery ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) seems like a more worthwhile investment on FantasyScore in a game that should feature Chicago airing it out.

Bears | Three Bears limited Tuesday

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 12:28:59 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (groin), RB Matt Forte (knee) and TE Martellus Bennett (ribs) were limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: All three players are question marks heading into Week 12. Jeffery ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) has been battling injuries off and on all year; he may be the biggest question mark. All three need to be monitored before setting FantasyScore lineups this week. Marquess Wilson ($3,200, 6.4%), Jeremy Langford ($7,300, 14.6%) and Zach Miller ($2,800, 5.6%) would be the primary beneficiaries if Jeffery, Forte and Bennett were to sit.
