Chicago Bears news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 18:10:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: White has all the physical tools he needs to succeed, but it could take him a while to learn some of the subtleties to playing the receiver position in the NFL. Still, he should eventually take over the No. 2 receiving job. Stash him as a WR5, and he could pay dividends as the season goes on.

Chicago Bears RB Ka'Deem Carey said he is excited about the competition at the running back position and is focused on learning offensive coordinator Adam Gase's playbook and becoming RB Matt Forte's primary backup.

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal said he has been working with QB Jay Cutler this offseason in order to build chemistry. Royal said they have been watching extra film and doing extra work on the field. Royal recorded 91 receptions, 980 yards and five touchdowns when they both played for the Denver Broncos in 2008.
Fantasy Tip: Royal had chemistry with Cutler earlier in his career and will try to resume that chemistry with the Bears. Royal probably will not start for the Bears but should have a solid role in the offense. Royal could be a late-round option in point-per-reception leagues and has the potential to have more value.

Chicago Bears LB Pernell McPhee will drop back in coverage and rush the passer this season. He dropped back in coverage just once with the Baltimore Ravens last year. "It's a big difference," McPhee said Thursday, June 18. "I'm usually a pass rusher, and they brought me in to do other things, make the defense real difficult so you don't know who's coming."

The Chicago Bears will be counting on a group effort from WRs Kevin White, Eddie Royal and Marquess Wilson to make up for Brandon Marshall's lost production. WR Alshon Jeffery is expected to fully takeover as the No. 1 receiver in Chicago.
Fantasy Tip: Jeffery will enter the 2015 season as a top-5 receiver, while White is almost sure to be over drafted in his rookie season. Royal already has some chemistry with Jay Cutler from his time in Denver, and he should be considered as a sleeper heading into drafts.

Fantasy Tip: White still isn't considered the No. 2 wide receiver opposite Alshon Jeffery, but he should be able to gain some ground during training camp. We don't know what exactly his medical issue is, but it doesn't sound too serious as Fox also said White is day-to-day. He should be taken as a speculative WR4-WR5.

Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett participated in minicamp practice Tuesday, June 16, after skipping the first three weeks of organized team activities. Bennett told reporters he expects to be at training camp on reporting day in late July.
Fantasy Tip: Bennett is a safe top-five tight end selection, even with the Bears implementing a new offense.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler said he's feeling great about the offense under new offensive coordinator Adam Gase. "I know the guys like it. I know the receivers like it," Cutler said. "TE Martellus Bennett is going to love it when he gets involved. We just have to keep heading in the direction we are going and keep studying. We are not where we want to be yet."
Fantasy Tip: No matter how much Cutler talks up the offense, he's still not worthy of QB1 consideration. He's proven to be one of the most unreliable quarterbacks both in real life and in fantasy football. He's a solid backup quarterback for your fantasy squad(s).

Fantasy Tip: Whatever the injury or ailment is, the fact that White is merely day-to-day is encouraging, and implies that White should not miss extended time. White is expected to start opposite Alshon Jeffery this season. While there may be some rookie hiccups along the way, he has WR3 upside in his first NFL season.
Mon, 15 Jun 2015 12:34:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bennett may be ready to get down to business, but that doesn't mean he's happy with his current contract now. As long as he plays and is healthy, he's still a top-five tight end candidate for the 2015 season.
