Chicago Bears news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 26 Sep 2016 18:56:58 -0700
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard might be in line to shoulder the load with RB Jeremy Langford (ankle) sidelined, and head coach John Fox said it would not be impossible. "I think there's guys in the league that do," Fox said. "Remember, Jordan is a rookie that we've seen for three real NFL football games. So we'll kind of evaluate as we move forward."
Fantasy Tip: Howard is the last man standing in the Chicago backfield, as Langford is down and Ka'Deem Carey did not travel to Dallas due to a hamstring injury. Howard will be a very popular choice off the waiver wire this week.

Fantasy Tip: Rookie Jordan Howard is the heir apparent while Langford is sidelined. While he is still unproven, Howard has shown signs of starter potential. He also plays a Detroit Lions defense that just surrendered over 100 rushing yards to Eddie Lacy. Howard is involved in the passing game, too, so he's not a bad option going forward in PPR and non-PPR leagues and particularly in daily contests next week.

Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford (ankle) left Week 3 with an injury initially feared to be an Achilles' tear, but team doctors have ruled it out after further examination. Instead, the team believes he only sprained his ankle.
Fantasy Tip: Langford showed increased physicality in the preseason, but head coach John Fox thought he left yards on the field in Week 1 and appears to have resorted to his favored committee approach since. If Langford is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, rookie Jordan Howard may have just received his chance to become the new lead back in Chicago. With that said, it is difficult to recommend him as anything more than a flex given the Bears' current state of affairs.

Fantasy Tip: Brian Hoyer tends to lean on his tight ends, and Miller has a ton of upside while Jay Cutler (thumb) is out. Miller is a midrange TE1 option with upside against the Detroit Lions next week.

Fantasy Tip: He didn't throw any picks, but he put the ball on the ground twice, losing one of them. The Bears will have a tough matchup against the Detroit Lions in Week 4, and Hoyer may be a bye-week filler.

Fantasy Tip: With Langford on the mend and Ka'Deem Carey inactive, rookie Jordan Howard will carry the load the rest of the game unless Langford has a miraculous recovery.

Fantasy Tip: With Carey on the mend it will be rookie Jordan Howard getting a golden opportunity behind Jeremy Langford, and perhaps ahead of Langford if he continues to struggle. It's a situation worth monitoring closely for fantasy owners.

Fantasy Tip: The good news for Hoyer is that Alshon Jeffery is healthy and available, but he is only a low-end QB2 at this point. Cutler should be reserved in all fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: It was touch and go with Jeffery this week, but he practiced Friday and is ready to go.

Chicago Bears DB Bryce Callahan (concussion), RB Ka'Deem Carey (hamstring), QB Jay Cutler (thumb), DB Kyle Fuller (knee), DT Eddie Goldman (ankle), OL Eric Kush and LB Danny Trevathan (thumb) are inactive for the Week 3 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery was listed as questionable on the injury report but was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, Sept. 23. He should be viewed as a risky WR2 option this week, especially with Brian Hoyer starting at quarterback in place of Jay Cutler.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the lack of reps, you can expect Hoyer to look Jeffery's way early and often against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3, assuming Jeffery can play through a knee injury. If Jeffery is on the field, he has WR2 upside in all formats.
