Bears | No big offers for Matt Forte?

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 18:52:58 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte will be lucky to command more than $4 million per year, according to league sources.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has been one of the most versatile backs in the league throughout his career, but his status as a reliable RB1 could change depending on where he lands in free agency.

Bears | Matt Forte has been a workhorse

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 09:13:59 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte has played 594 more snaps than any other running back in the NFL since he entered the league in 2008.

Fantasy Tip: Forte just turned 30 and has ran the ball 2,035 times in his eight-year career. He still has productivity left in him, but his next destination he's likely to share more backfield work. Forte excels catching the ball out of the backfield, so he's still more attractive in point-per-reception leagues, depending on where he lands.

Bears | Jeremy Langford in line to start

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 07:54:05 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford figures to start in 2016 after the team informed RB Matt Forte Friday, Feb. 12, they have no intentions to re-sign him.

Fantasy Tip: Langford had 148 carries for 537 yards (3.6 yards per carry) and six touchdowns in 2015. He also had a 22-279-1 receiving line. Unless the team adds another running back, Langford pegs as an RB2 in his second season.

Bears | Matt Forte headed elsewhere

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 07:28:10 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte has been informed by the Bears that they will not attempt to re-sign him this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Even at 30 years old, Forte still has the ability to be a PPR RB1 in the right system. He averaged 4.1 yards per carry last season, which was up from the previous season. Unless Forte lands in a 50-50 committee, he's still worth consideration as a low-end RB1.

Bears | Ezekiel Elliott wants to play in Chicago

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 21:03:29 -0800

Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott said being drafted by the Chicago Bears would be his ideal scenario. "My running back coach my sophomore year is Stan Drayton and he's up at the Chicago Bears right now, so that would be a dream situation for me honestly," Elliott said. "I know if I went up there he'd push me to the limits that I need to be and I'd accomplish everything I want to in my NFL career."

Fantasy Tip: Elliott is arguably the most complete back in the draft, and in the right situation, he could be a flex option as a rookie.

Bears | Zach Miller seeking $5 million per year

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 11:45:05 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March of 2016, is asking for $5 million per year in his next contract, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Prior to playing 15 games last year, Miller had not appeared in a regular-season game since 2011. Despite his breakout second half, the Bears are likely to look at other options - including perhaps bringing back Martellus Bennett at roughly the same price - if Miller's asking price does not drop. If Miller remains in Chicago and Bennett does not, he has low-end TE1 potential. If both stick around, the 31-year-old journeyman would be a high-upside fantasy backup at best.

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 | No contract talks for Matt Forte

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 07:04:27 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte hasn't had any meaningful contract talks with the team as of a couple of weeks ago.

Fantasy Tip: Forte has shown signs of age at 30 years old, but he's still a valuable back in PPR leagues. If he can latch on with a team with at least a timeshare role, he'll be a low-end RB2 in fantasy at minimum.

Bears | Chicago GM confident in Jay Cutler

Mon, 04 Jan 2016 17:48:10 -0800

The Chicago Bears plan to build the offense around QB Jay Cutler, and general manager Ryan Pace said Monday, Jan. 4, that the team has "extreme confidence" in the veteran quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler wrapped up the 2015 season with 3,659 passing yards with 21 touchdowns, 11 interceptions, a 64.4 completion percentage and a career-high 92.3 quarterback rating. His completion percentage was the second-highest of his career, and that was playing nearly half of the season without his biggest target, Alshon Jeffery, part of the season without Martellus Bennett, and losing first-round pick Kevin White to an injury in the preseason.
