Chicago Bears news, rumors and injuries
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.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson's ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) daily value in Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers will largely depend on whether Alshon Jeffery returns to play. If Jeffery misses a second straight game, Wilson will be a prime value target by daily gamers.

Fantasy Tip: Royal ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) hasn't played since Nov. 1 and seems unlikely to suit up on the short week. You can avoid him everywhere. Carey ($2,000) wouldn't even be a viable daily pick on Thanksgiving if he were to be active with Matt Forte expected to return from injury.

Chicago Bears S Antrel Rolle (knee) did not practice Tuesday, Nov. 24. S Sherrod Martin (neck), LB Pernell McPhee (knee) and LB LaRoy Reynolds (knee) were limited, while DT Jarvis Jenkins (chest) practiced in full.

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.

Fantasy Tip: White has been on the Physically Unable to Perform list all season and has 21 days to practice before his season is a wash. White is a speculative pickup that could have a role once the fantasy playoffs roll around.

Fantasy Tip: After an extensive workout Sunday, the Bears are very optimistic that Forte will return to face the Green Bay Packers Thursday night. A Forte return will lower everyone's expectations for Jeremy Langford, and it could make both Forte and Langford frustrating daily options if they cannabilize each other's workload.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery missed Week 11 against the Denver Broncos, and his status is up in the air once again on a short week against the Green Bay Packers. If he sits out another contest, Wilson will once again be a popular sleeper pick on FantasyScore in a game in which the Bears will likely be throwing often.

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett (ribs), RB Ka'Deem Carey (head) and WR Eddie Royal (knee) did not practice Monday, Nov. 23. The Bears didn't actually practice Monday, so the designations are an estimation.
Fantasy Tip: With a short week on tap, all three players are risky on FantasyScore. We don't expect Royal or Carey to play at all. Bennett is trickier, and you'll have to keep a close eye on his progress leading up to Thursday. If he does play, he's not a bad FantasyScore selection against a Packers team allowing the seventh-most PPR fantasy points (15.9) to tight ends per game this year.

Chicago Bears S Sherrod Martin (neck) and S Antrel Rolle (knee) did not practice Monday, Nov. 23. DT Jarvis Jenkins (chest), LB Pernell McPhee (knee) and LB LaRoy Reynolds (knee) were limited. The Bears didn't actually practice Monday, so the designations are an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett finished with a disappointing two catches (six targets) for 26 yards in the game against Denver, a top defense in the NFL. If he isn't too badly injured, he could be a strong play on FantasyScore against the Green Bay Packers Thursday. The Packers allow 15.9 PPR fantasy points per game to tight ends, and Jay Cutler figures to be throwing a lot in that one.

Fantasy Tip: Forte would have some upside against the Green Bay Packers, but you must wonder how much he'll play before using RB1 financials on him in FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler failed to throw a touchdown for the first time this season but was without some of his weapons on offense. He will be facing the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving and may not be the best starting option for owners.
