Bears | Chicago seeking Jay Cutler trade

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 15:25:47 -0800

The Chicago Bears are actively seeking a trade for QB Jay Cutler, according to ESPN's Jeff Darlington.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler has undeniably been a disappointment for the Bears after being given a big contract. Cutler has dealt with plenty of injuries over the course of his tenure in Chicago, but even when he's been on the field he has not played well. Wherever Cutler plays, he shouldn't be starting on fantasy squads.

Bears | Brian Hoyer could stay as mentor

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 11:51:01 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer is a logical choice to be re-signed if the Bears draft a rookie quarterback, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jeff Dickerson. Hoyer is open to mentoring younger players and also still has some fuel left in the tank after throwing over 1,400 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions in six games last year.

Fantasy Tip: Chicago does need to address their quarterback situation. Jay Cutler is not the answer and Hoyer is aging. For fantasy purposes, it's best to avoid drafting any Chicago quarterback, although Cutler and/or Hoyer are serviceable bye-week replacements and streaming options if necessary.

Bears | Logan Paulsen on his way out?

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 11:43:00 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent TE Logan Paulsen may not be re-signed, according to ESPN.com's Jeff Dickerson. Paulsen did play in all 16 games last season, but "the Bears probably want more production from that spot, or fewer penalties," in the words of Dickerson.

Bears | Ted Larsen may not return

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 11:37:52 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent OG Ted Larsen may need to play somewhere else in 2017 if he wants a starting gig, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jeff Dickerson. OGs Kyle Long, Josh Sitton and Cody Whitehair, among others, may keep Larsen from cracking into the starting offensive line.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery will cost pretty penny

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 11:31:45 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery could be given the franchise tag for a second straight year. That tag would cost the Bears $17.5 million. That being said, both sides prefer a long-term deal, according to ESPN.com's Jeff Dickerson.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery will be one of the most coveted free agents on the market this offseason. The Philadelphia Eagles have been one team mentioned as a possible suitor. His fantasy value is difficult to gauge since we don't yet know where he'll be playing. It's likely that he'll be a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2, though.

Bears | Zach Miller eyeing OTAs

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 08:29:03 -0800

Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (foot) said he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from Lisfranc surgery, and he said he'll be ready for organized team activities in April.

Fantasy Tip: Miller has having a breakout season before his campaign was cut short. He had a 47-486-4 line in 10 games. He's not a young guy, as he turns 33 in October, and he's best served as a TE2 in fantasy.

Bears | Jordan Howard in rare company

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 17:20:20 -0800

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard set franchise rookie records with 1,313 rushing yards and seven 100-yard games, and he joined Walter Payton as the only Bears players to rush for more than 1,300 yards in a season while averaging at least five yards per carry.

Fantasy Tip: Once Howard grabbed the starting gig, he didn't look back. He should enter the 2017 season as the lead back in Chicago and a RB1 in all fantasy formats.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery took care of body

Sat, 04 Feb 2017 20:03:00 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent WR Alshon Jeffery did "a good job taking care of his body" during the 2016 season, according to general manager Ryan Pace. "I saw how he worked and how he prepared and kind of where his focus has been and his mindset," Pace said.

Fantasy Tip: There is a chance Jeffery ends up back in Chicago, but no matter he plays in 2017, he is going to be a high-risk, high-reward option for fantasy owners. If you can grab him for a low-end WR2 price, he is well worth the gamble.

Bears | Bears moving on from Jay Cutler?

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 17:05:47 -0800

The Chicago Bears are "moving on" from QB Jay Cutler, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be much of a surprise, as Cutler was brutal this season while being limited to just five games due to injury. Plus, Chicago is said to be very interested in acquiring Jimmy Garoppolo from New England. Regardless, Cutler's best days are well behind him anyway, and even if he does end up starting elsewhere in 2017, he shouldn't be a draft day target in just about all fantasy formats.
