Bears | Brian Hoyer to undergo surgery Sunday

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 07:25:27 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) is scheduled to undergo surgery Sunday, Oct. 23, on his broken left forearm. He will be sidelined for at least eight weeks and could be placed on injured reserve.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Barkley will serve as Chicago's starting quarterback for the foreseeable future, with Jay Cutler (thumb) out indefinitely, but he is not a viable fantasy option. It had been hoped that Hoyer could make a late-season return but the odds of that happening now appear slim.

Bears | Brian Hoyer likely to undergo surgery

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 07:13:25 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) is expected to undergo surgery to repair the broken radius bone in his left arm suffered during Week 7's game against the Green Bay Packers, according to a source. A late-season return has not been ruled out.

Fantasy Tip: QB Jay Cutler (thumb) remains out indefinitely, so Matt Barkley will be Chicago's primary signal-caller for the foreseeable future. However, Barkley is not a viable fantasy option and all Bears pass-catchers are likely to experience a dip in production for as long as he's in there.

Bears | Ka'Deem Carey tallies 57 total yards

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 21:59:55 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Ka'Deem Carey looked like the team's best option in the backfield for the second straight week, rushing 10 times for 48 yards while adding a nine-yard catch on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Carey was perhaps the lone bright spot for Chicago, showing some burst and explosion against one of the league's better run defenses. He out-touched starter Jordan Howard 11-7 and produced 35 more total yards. While neither player is worth using in Week 8 against the Minnesota Vikings, it is becoming clear the Bears are moving back toward a backfield committee again.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery bottled up again

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 21:50:51 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery tallied three catches for 33 scoreless yards on 11 targets in a Week 7 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Owners were probably hoping for something approaching his final line last week (seven catches for 93 yards) against a decimated Packers' secondary, but Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley combined for only 120 yards and 10 completions on 26 attempts. If there is one bright spot, it might be that Jeffery has amassed 24 targets over the last two weeks (seven fewer than his total through the first five games). Things aren't going to get any better with Matt Barkley as his quarterback and the Minnesota Vikings on deck next week, so consider him a low-upside WR2 for that matchup.

Bears | Cameron Meredith held to one catch

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 21:32:26 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Cameron Meredith hauled in only one of his two targets for 12 yards in a Week 7 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: While Brian Hoyer's first-half arm injury and subsequent exit didn't exactly help matters, Meredith appeared to be an afterthought all game long. After posting 20 catches on 27 targets over the previous two weeks, the second-year wideout is now in uncertain fantasy territory with Hoyer out indefinitely and Matt Barkley under center. It's too early for his owners to panic, but a Week 8 date with the Minnesota Vikings is daunting enough to make him bench-worthy.

Bears | Jordan Howard disappoints in Week 7 loss

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 21:10:21 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard was held to 22 yards on seven carries in a Week 7 setback versus the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: True to form, head coach John Fox didn't wait long to remind the fantasy world how much he loves running back committees, turning to Ka'Deem Carey on the third series, and Howard saw relatively little playing time after that. While Howard may still be the starter going forward, his run as the featured back is likely over. Carey once again showed more explosion and made his case for increased touches. As such, Howard is going to be hard to trust as anything more than a flex play going forward.

Bears | Brian Hoyer has broken left arm

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 19:27:33 -0700

Updating a previous story, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) was diagnosed with a broken left arm, according to head coach John Fox.

Fantasy Tip: With Jay Cutler (thumb) still out indefinitely, Matt Barkley is now in control of the Bears' offense. Hoyer can consider himself lucky in the sense he suffered the injury on his non-throwing arm, but he is still looking at an extended absence in all likelihood. Barkley has looked competent so far, but his presence is still a downgrade for all Chicago pass-catchers.

Bears | Brian Hoyer out of game

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 18:37:23 -0700

Updating previous items, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (forearm) will not return to the Thursday, Oct. 20, game against the Green Bay Packers due to a forearm injury.

Fantasy Tip: Not much is known about how long Hoyer will be out, although things did not look good when Hoyer left for the locker room. For now, QB Matt Barkley is in the game, and QB Jay Cutler may have just gotten a reprieve in the short term. Stay tuned to see what the Bears do for their next move.

Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) was shaken up in the second quarter of the Thursday, Oct. 20, game against the Green Bay Packers. QB Matt Barkley was seen warming up on the sidelines, but Hoyer was also seen walking the sidelines before heading to the locker room holding his left arm.

Fantasy Tip: This is a fluid situation, so stay tuned for further details on whether Hoyer comes back in or Barkley has to finish the game.
