Chicago Bears news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 08:15:54 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cutler ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) likely will have limited mobility because of the injury, which makes him a risky option for fantasy owners. Owners may want to consider other options to use in their lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Forte ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) has been a big part of the Bears offense this season and likely would be productive with any team. Forte should be a weekly starting option in all leagues because of his ability to produce in the running and passing game.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 07:25:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Cutler ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) will be able to play. Cutler could have limited mobility if he is able to play and probably is not the best option for owners to use.

Chicago Bears CB Alan Ball (groin), DT Ego Ferguson (knee), P Patrick O'Donnell (knee), DT Jeremiah Ratliff (ankle) and DE Will Sutton (elbow) were limited during practice Friday, Oct. 2, and are listed as questionable for the Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Cutler ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) will be playing in the game. Cutler will be a risky option for owners because he could be limited by the injury if he is active. QB Jimmy Clausen ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should not be a starting option if he receives the start.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) is not expected to play in the game, but owners should check the inactive list to make sure. Eddie Royal ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and Marquess Wilson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should continue to see more playing time but neither is a great fantasy option.

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 09:44:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: At this point Jeffery ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) is on the verge of being a serious bust for his owners. The bright side is that the Chiefs have the worst pass defense against wide receivers if Jeffery is to return next week, and he'll likely be lightly owned on FantasyScore. Jay Cutler (hamstring) should be back by then, too.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 08:52:30 -0700
Fantasy Tip: TE Martellus Bennett ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) already has a good matchup against the Oakland Raiders and could have backup QB Jimmy Clausen throwing to him. With Jeffery out, expect Bennett to be an even bigger factor in the gameplan. He's a good start on FantasyScore.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 07:34:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cutler ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is still probably on the downside of questionable for the game, and Jimmy Clausen ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) figures to start. Neither are good options on FantasyScore this week.

Chicago Bears OT Jermon Bushrod (concussion, shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 1. CB Alan Ball (groin), DE Ego Ferguson (knee), P Pat O'Donnell (knee), DT Jeremiah Ratliff (ankle) and DE Will Sutton were limited.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015 15:31:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Bears are planning on Jeffery ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) returning in Week 4 after a two-week hiatus. Chicago's Week 4 opponent, the Oakland Raiders, have been dismal against the pass so far this year. While Jeffery may have some rust, he's still worth starting.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015 11:39:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cutler ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has a favorable matchup this week, but his lacking play and questionable health don't bode well for him on FantasyScore.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 21:06:54 -0700
Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett faces a very favorable matchup in Week 4 against the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders have been carved up by opposing tight ends in the first three weeks, giving up 305 receiving yards and a league-high five touchdowns, including 105 yards and a touchdown against Cleveland Browns journeyman TE Gary Barnidge in Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: With the Bears expected to use Jimmy Clausen in place of the injured Jay Cutler again, the passing radius will be much smaller for the quarterback and that benefits the tight end and running backs in the receiving game. Look for Bennett ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) to post a big stat line in Week 4 for FantasyScore players.
