Bears | Chicago to use committee backfield

Fri, 20 May 2016 11:23:24 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford will battle with RBs Jordan Howard, Ka'Deem Carey and Jacquizz Rodgers for touches in a crowded backfield during offseason workouts. Head coach John Fox is intent on running with a committee approach after the departure of RB Matt Forte. Langford has a leg up after scoring seven touchdowns in his rookie season. However, he had only 3.6 yards per carry and 1.13 yards after contact, which ranked second to last out of 47 players with 100 carries, according to ESPN Stats and Information. Langford must also work on improving his hands after struggling with drops in 2015. Howard's bruising style appeals to the team as a complement to Langford's speed. Carey is the only back that wasn't acquired by the current coaching staff, and he's being pushed to become more versatile and to play better on third downs. Rodgers it the veteran and could be trusted more than any other rusher on third downs early in the year.

Fantasy Tip: This makes things a little frustrating for fantasy owners, and it could be a fluid situation in terms of touches, at least early in the year. Langford has the leg up and should be the first back of this group drafted in fantasy leagues. He has more appeal in PPR formats as an RB3. Howard is a wildcard that could vulture touchdowns from Langford and is an RB5 flyer in standard-scoring leagues. Carey and Rodgers would likely need an injury to see significant touches and are mainly handcuffs.

Bears | Leonard Floyd eating often

Mon, 16 May 2016 13:09:49 -0700

Chicago Bears rookie LB Leonard Floyd has an alarm set on his phone to remind him to eat every couple of hours, as mandated by the Bears. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio isn't concerned as much with Floyd's weight as he is about the speed with which Floyd plays. "We wanted speed," Fangio said. "Our team speed up front last year was below average. To add somebody with some speed as part of his toolbox is something we were intrigued by."

Bears | Leonard Floyd's weight not an issue

Sun, 15 May 2016 17:50:35 -0700

Chicago Bears LB Leonard Floyd's weight is not an issue and the team does not plan to have him bulk up, according to defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. "The weight thing's not a big thing with me," Fangio said. "He's going to weigh somewhere between 230 and 235. That's just what he's going to weigh. We knew that before we drafted him. So it's not an issue."

Bears | Jay Cutler to have same offense

Sat, 14 May 2016 17:14:20 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will work with an offense that has the same shell and language as last season, according to offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, and Loggains said his strong relationship with Cutler will help offset the departure of Adam Gase.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler can be a quality fantasy starter against the right matchups, but his lack of consistency from one week to the next makes him better suited to be a fantasy backup.

Bears | Kevin White compared to former Colt

Sat, 14 May 2016 10:42:19 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White was compared to free-agent WR Andre Johnson (Colts) by Bears wide receivers coach Curtis Johnson. Johnson coached Johnson at the University of Miami. "He's very similar to him. They're both big and physical and fast," Johnson said. "That doesn't all go together sometimes. White has hand similar to [former Indianapolis Colts] WR Reggie Wayne. So he was one of those guys where when you looked at the draft and watched television, you say this guy is going to be a bona fide player."

Fantasy Tip: White has yet to play a professional snap in football, so he has a lot of proving to do yet. The Bears could certainly use a healthy White to take some pressure off of Alshon Jeffery. The potential is promising, but he shouldn't be selected as more than a speculative WR4.

Bears | Coach thinks Jeremy Langford can improve

Fri, 13 May 2016 17:05:17 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford could improve his work in the passing game, but the team likes where he is at this point, according to offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains. "We like where Jeremy's at," Loggains said. "He needs to continue to develop. There are things he can do a better job of in the passing game."

Fantasy Tip: Langford will be the starting running back for the Bears in 2016 and should be involved in the passing game as well. Langford played well when he received playing time in 2015 and should be a weekly starting option for owners.

Bears | Jordan Howard will have role in 2016

Fri, 13 May 2016 17:01:36 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard will be used as a change-of-pace back in 2016 since he has a different style of running than RB Kendall Langford, according to offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains. "He's a change-of-pace back. Their skill sets are different. We'll use the skill set the way it needs to be. We won't ask them to both do the same thing, but we'll find out what Howard does well and we'll play to that," Loggains said.

Fantasy Tip: Howard likely will not receive most of the carries during his rookie season but should see a handful of touches each game. He could be a handcuff to Langford in deeper leagues and should have some value in keeper leagues.

Bears | Jordan Howard terms

Thu, 12 May 2016 07:40:11 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard's rookie deal is worth $2,588,024 with a signing bonus of $248,024.

Fantasy Tip: Howard could emerge as the short-yardage back and be used in goal line situations. He could be worth an RB5 flyer or a handcuff to Jeremy Langford in fantasy.
