Bears | Chicago looking for WRs

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 14:33:31 -0800

The Chicago Bears are unlikely to use the seventh overall pick of the NFL Draft on a wide receiver, but the upcoming class of receivers gives them many options to complement WR Alshon Jeffery. They could look to University of Miami WR Phillip Dorsett, who ran a 4.33-second 40-yard dash in the second round. The Bears also hosted free-agent WR Brian Hartline (Dolphins) for a visit this week. After trading WR Brandon Marshall, the current roster features WRs Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani, Josh Morgan and Marquess Wilson. Jeffery may be moved to the No. 1 receiver role, but he averaged just four catches in the last three games with Marshall injured in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery should still be fine in Chicago, but Jay Cutler's status with the team may also be in question, further muddling the picture. Jeffery should be a safe top-end WR2, at worst. Counting on him as a top WR1 may be too much, though, since he could struggle to be consistent if the Bears don't give him receiving help around him.

Bears | Decision on Jay Cutler looming

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 16:39:32 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's contract is a concern, with the $10 million he's due for 2016 becoming fully guaranteed in one week.

Fantasy Tip: Fox has not received high praise from new head coach John Fox and seems to already be in the doghouse. The possibility of a trade still remains and could come to fruition within a week if the Bears feel that Cutler isn't worth the money. Stay tuned.

Bears | Brandon Marshall being shopped

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 08:20:41 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall is being shopped by the team with the idea of trading him, according to a league source. Another league source said his belief is that the team is taking calls on Marshall. The team could move Marshall for a mid-round pick.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall was slowed by injuries in 2014, but there is no reason to think he can't rebound in 2015 and be a low-end WR1 or a WR2, depending on where he lands.

Bears | John Fox non-committal on Jay Cutler

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:43:05 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler did not receive a vote of confidence from head coach John Fox. Fox said the team is still evaluating the position. Fox said he wants to get to know Cutler as part of that evaluation. "We're not up against a deadline," Fox said. "My experience has always been that you need to gather the information and in turn, you usually make better decisions. We're in that process, and we'll keep you posted."

Fantasy Tip: There is still a chance that Cutler could be traded before the beginning of next season. He should be considered a QB2 wherever he ends up, and a solid FantasyScore play when the matchup and price is favorable.

Bears | HC non-committal on Brandon Marshall

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:27:49 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall's standing with the team for the upcoming season may be in question, but new head coach John Fox was non-committal about Marshall when asked Wednesday, Feb. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall may be losing a step or two as he's on the wrong side of 30. However, injuries likely were a big reason for his disappointing 2014 season. he can easily bounce back and be a solid midrange WR1 in 2015, no matter where he's playing.
