Bears | Markus Wheaton hopeful for Week 3

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 16:15:40 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (finger) said Wednesday, Sept. 20, that he is hopeful of making his team debut in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Wheaton has been inactive for the first two games due to a broken pinkie, but he is likely to push hard to return to face his former team. The Bears have a mish-mash group of receivers, so Wheaton has opportunity in the Windy City. But for now his fantasy value is rather negligible.

Bears | Jordan Howard limited in practice

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 15:32:34 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Howard had a disastrous Week 2, posting just seven yards on nine carries and he was unable to record a catch on his only target. The good news is that rookie Tarik Cohen ran for just 13 yards on seven rushes and he lost a fumble, although he did grab eight balls for 55 yards. Howard is dinged up, not doing a lot and he has Cohen to contend with. His fantasy star isn't as bright as it was in 2016. Suddenly he is a questionable fantasy play heading into Week 3 against the Steelers.

Bears | Tarik Cohen taking his time

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 20:33:29 -0700

Chicago Bears rookie RB Tarik Cohen is averaging 6.6 yards per carry on his 12 rushing attempts through two games but is spending an average of 4.17 seconds per run before crossing the line of scrimmage - nearly a full second more than any other player in league with at least 10 carries this season.

Fantasy Tip: Cohen is already one of the more elusive backs in the league, but most of the credit for his league-high time in the backfield is due to the fact he is being used primarily on tosses and sweeps. Nevertheless, it's still a very long time for any back - Le'Veon Bell led the league in 2016 at 3.09 seconds - and obviously unsustainable. The Bears' dearth of wideouts has forced them to rely heavily on Cohen in the passing game, and the rookie has quickly moved into RB2 consideration in PPR formats.

Bears | Kendall Wright catches seven passes

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 13:36:31 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright caught seven passes for 69 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Wright will serve as the No. 1 receiver for the Bears moving forward because of the injuries the team has at the position. He probably will be avoided most of the time but could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues against certain opponents.

Bears | Jordan Howard struggles in Week 2

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 13:33:33 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for seven yards on nine carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Howard received the most carries during the game but was not able to produce in the run game. He probably will continue to share snaps with Tarik Cohen moving forward and may only be a flex option next week.

Bears | Tarik Cohen finishes with 68 total yards

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 13:29:53 -0700

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen caught eight passes for 55 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2. He also rushed for 13 yards on seven carries.

Fantasy Tip: Cohen was not as productive as he was in Week 1 but was still a big part of the offense against the Bucs. He should receive a similar workload in Week 3 and could be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Bears | Mike Glennon surpasses 300-yard mark

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 13:17:06 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon went 31-for-45 for 301 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Glennon may not keep the starting job much longer but has posted decent numbers over the first two games. He will be facing the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3 and should be avoided in all leagues.
