Bears | Josh Bellamy targeted nine times

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 16:48:17 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Josh Bellamy posted four grabs for 41 yards on nine targets in the Week 12 loss against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Bellamy is one of a handful of receivers stepping up to fill the void left by Alshon Jeffery, who is suspended two more games. Bellamy still has a whole to go before he can be trusted in fantasy football, but he has seen more of the field in recent weeks due to injuries and/or suspensions.

Bears | Josh Bellamy a lock to make club?

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 22:35:59 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Josh Bellamy looks like he has secured a spot on the 53-man roster according to Hub Arkush. Already a capable special teams performer, Bellamy has shown a knack for getting deep in camp -- that includes a pair of long touchdown grabs against the New England Patriots in a joint practice.

Fantasy Tip: Bellamy's 19-224-2 line didn't open many eyes last season, but things are unsettled in Chicago's passing game after Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White (and maybe Zach Miller). Bellamy isn't worth drafting, but you might keep an eye on him, especially given the respective medical histories of the three players listed.

Bears | Marquess Wilson could start on PUP list

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 13:04:34 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (foot) is expected to begin the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. Wilson would not be eligible to return until Week 6 if he is placed on the PUP list to start the season. WRs Josh Bellamy and Cameron Meredith were the first two names mentioned by Biggs who could play more if Wilson is sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White will take most of the targets in Chicago's offense anyway, and TE Zach Miller should see a lot of action, too. No one behind Jeffery and White on the Bears' wide receiver depth chart is worth serious fantasy consideration.

Bears | Joshua Bellamy, Marc Mariani produce

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 19:53:05 -0800

Chicago Bears WRs Josh Bellamy posted three receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Detroit Lions, while WR Marc Mariani had six receptions for 80 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Bellamy and Mariani were getting a chance to shine with Alshon Jeffery sidelined, but going into 2016 they aren't likely to have much value. Mariani is more of a special teams maven, while Bellamy will be a depth player only.

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.

Bears | Eddie Royal questionable

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 15:44:10 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (knee) did not practice all week but is questionable for Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers. However, it's unusual for a player to suit up after missing an entire week of practice. With WR Marquess Wilson (foot) also out, WRs Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani and Cameron Meredith might be asked to contribute more.

Fantasy Tip: Don't count on Royal ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) to return this weekend. With Wilson out, Alshon Jeffery ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) is worth every penny against a weak Niners defense. Martellus Bennett ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) is also very attractive with Zach Miller questionable to play.

Bears | Chicago looking for WRs

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 14:33:31 -0800

The Chicago Bears are unlikely to use the seventh overall pick of the NFL Draft on a wide receiver, but the upcoming class of receivers gives them many options to complement WR Alshon Jeffery. They could look to University of Miami WR Phillip Dorsett, who ran a 4.33-second 40-yard dash in the second round. The Bears also hosted free-agent WR Brian Hartline (Dolphins) for a visit this week. After trading WR Brandon Marshall, the current roster features WRs Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani, Josh Morgan and Marquess Wilson. Jeffery may be moved to the No. 1 receiver role, but he averaged just four catches in the last three games with Marshall injured in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery should still be fine in Chicago, but Jay Cutler's status with the team may also be in question, further muddling the picture. Jeffery should be a safe top-end WR2, at worst. Counting on him as a top WR1 may be too much, though, since he could struggle to be consistent if the Bears don't give him receiving help around him.
