Bears | Markus Wheaton blanked against old team

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 17:05:49 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (finger) was targeted twice in his season debut in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, his former team, but he had no catches.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton was making his team debut and he has opportunity in Chicago with Cameron Meredith and Kevin White done for the season, leaving the wideout picture wide open. However, it might take time to get used to his new surroundings, so file his name away for fantasy consideration later.

Bears | Markus Wheaton hopeful for Week 3

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 16:15:40 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (finger) said Wednesday, Sept. 20, that he is hopeful of making his team debut in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton has been inactive for the first two games due to a broken pinkie, but he is likely to push hard to return to face his former team. The Bears have a mish-mash group of receivers, so Wheaton has opportunity in the Windy City. But for now his fantasy value is rather negligible.

Bears | Markus Wheaton unlikely to play

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 06:19:33 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (finger) appears to be a longshot to play in Week 2's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton was a limited participant in the team's three practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Seasonal owners should look for safer options to use this afternoon, while he should be avoided altogether in daily fantasy formats.

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (finger) is not active for Week 1's game against the Atlanta Falcons.
