Bears | Martellus Bennett still not at OTAs

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 13:07:03 -0700

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett is still absent from organized team activities. The Bears will be able to fine Bennett if he misses mandatory minicamp, which starts later this month. Bennett has made it clear that he wants a new contract.

Fantasy Tip: The OTAs are voluntary, so Bennett is safe for now. When it will really get interesting is when he could possibly start being fined in a couple weeks. He's one of the better tight ends when he's healthy and determined, amassing 90 catches for 916 yards and 6 touchdowns last year. Assuming he returns and plays, Bennett has top-five TE potential in 2015.

Bears | Matt Forte will attend training camp

Thu, 28 May 2015 06:05:46 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte will attend training camp despite his desire for a contract extension that Chicago has declined to offer. Forte is attending organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Forte probably has one last year of being a dominant fantasy player left in the tank at age 29. Chicago's regime change will alter his fantasy value to a degree, though, and the addition of RB Jacquizz Rodgers this offseason could further cut into his pass-catching duties. Forte is a weaker RB1 than he has been in recent years.

Bears | Matt Forte reports for workouts

Wed, 27 May 2015 18:35:27 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte was present for the start of organized team activities Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Forte is looking for a new contract but is not considering a holdout at this time. Forte should continue to see most of the work at running back in 2015 and could be selected in one of the first few rounds of drafts this upcoming season.

Bears | Martellus Bennett skipping OTAs

Wed, 27 May 2015 18:34:03 -0700

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett is not participating in organized team activities since he is looking for a new contract.

Fantasy Tip: Bennett does not need to take part in the practices, but the team likely wants him to attend since there is a new coaching staff. Bennett was one of the better tight ends in fantasy in 2014 and could be an option in the middle to late rounds of drafts this season.

Bears | Matt Forte in last year of contract

Wed, 20 May 2015 09:15:43 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte is entering the final year of his current contract, according to Spotrac.com. Forte turns 30 years old Dec. 10 and could struggle to find a full-time role in 2016 if he is unwilling to take a drastic pay cut from his current $7.05 million salary and $9.2 million cap hit. Forte's receiving skills will endear him to a team, but he may be required to share carries.

Fantasy Tip: Forte's hands will keep him in the conversation of starting fantasy running backs in 2016, regardless of where he lands. His 2015 outlook is sound. Expect 102 receptions to be way out of reason, given the change at offensive coordinator, Chicago's addition of RB Jacquizz Rodgers, and the sheer loftiness of last year's ridiculous figure. Forte, entering an age-30 season, is a borderline No. 1 fantasy back. Expect owners to overvalue him based on what he has accomplished rather than what is likely ahead.

Bears | Kyle Fuller a cornerstone for defense?

Tue, 12 May 2015 12:49:32 -0700

Chicago Bears CB Kyle Fuller is the next building block of the Chicago defense, in the eyes of head coach John Fox and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. "I think he has the right kind of tools to be a guy that can lean into that leader spot as he goes," Fox said.

Bears | Kevin White showing versatility

Sun, 10 May 2015 20:50:12 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White has spent time at all three receiver positions during rookie minicamp.

Fantasy Tip: Thanks to his elite speed and size, it would be easy to view White as simply an outside deep threat. However, it seems like the Bears are looking at moving White around the field. For now, the biggest takeaway is probably that White is set for a sizeable role in Chicago's offense. He is worth a look as a WR5, and he could develop into a weekly starting option by the end of the year.

Bears | Jared Allen to benefit at linebacker?

Sat, 09 May 2015 12:21:04 -0700

Bears | Chicago OC comfortable with Jay Cutler

Sat, 09 May 2015 10:40:39 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has some familiarity with offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Gase and Cutler met when Cutler was still an NFL prospect, and Cutler was still with the Denver Broncos when Gase came to Denver. "I feel comfortable with him. We have a good relationship so far and we're just going to keep working to get better," Gase said.

Fantasy Tip: There seems to be some camaraderie developing between Cutler and Gase, if it hasn't already. That can only be a good sign as Cutler and his teammates try to adjust to a new coaching staff. Perhaps that new staff and a familiar offensive coordinator can help Cutler improve on his notorious erratic play. Cutler did throw a career-high 28 touchdowns in 2014, but he's still a QB2 in fantasy football.
