Bears | Alshon Jeffery doesn't practice

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:41:33 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (non-injury related) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: This is probably just a day of rest for Jeffery ($7,100), but he's not a great play this week anyway with Jimmy Clausen throwing the ball and a tough matchup facing a top-tier Detroit Lions pass defense.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery active for Thursday

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 16:04:33 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is officially active for Thursday night's contest with the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys are one of six defenses to have given up single-digit receiving touchdowns to wide receivers this year, so Jeffery's hefty price of $7,100 on FantasyScore might be a little much.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery will play in Week 14

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 09:08:26 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) will be able to play in Week 14 even though he is listed as questionable for the game, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery was able to play last week so he probably will not be limited during the game. He is facing a Dallas Cowboys defense that has had some problems with wide receivers of the past month. Jeffery costs $7,100 on FantasyScore and could be a solid option if owners are willing to spend the money.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery questionable

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 10:24:02 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 3, and is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will play. Jeffery is a risky option to use on FantasyScore at $7,100, because he could be limited by the injury during the game but will be facing a Dallas Cowboys defense that has had problems with wide receivers over the last four weeks.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery sits

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 10:46:30 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: After getting some limited work in on Monday, Jeffery was not able to get on the practice field at all Tuesday. Check back for more on his health later today, but this could his status for Week 14 in doubt, especially on a short week. If he does play, he could be a good option against the Dallas defense this week.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery limited during practice

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 13:55:15 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was limited during practice Monday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery caught two touchdowns in Week 13 and has four touchdown catches in his last three games. He will be playing against a Dallas Cowboys pass defense that has allowed the second most fantasy points to wide receivers over the past two weeks. Jeffery has a chance to be a solid starting option on FantasyScore this week.

Bears | Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery probable

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 13:06:36 -0800

Chicago Bears WRs Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) are both listed as probable for Week 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Marshall was limited for the second straight day Friday, Nov. 21, while Jeffery practiced in full after being limited Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Both Marshall ($6,900) and Jeffery ($7,100) are solid options for your FantasyScore lineup this weekend against the Bucs. Tampa Bay allows the third-most fantasy points to wideouts per game at 26.54.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery limited in practice

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:09:24 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19, so the fact that he even practiced today is a good sign. His FantasyScore price of $7,100 is well worth it as he goes up against a porous Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery misses practice

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 13:34:37 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: There was no further information on the extent of Jeffery's injury, so it doesn't sound too serious. He does have a great matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, so monitor his status as the week progresses.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery finds end zone twice

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 13:49:42 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery managed 11 catches for 135 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery and Brandon Marshall combined for 18 grabs, 225 yards and three scores. It was just the second time this season both stud receivers found the end zone, and the eighth time in three seasons together that they accomplished the feat. Both are obvious must-starts in fantasy, but particularly in Week 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 16:07:38 -0700

Chicago Bears WRs Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (ankle) are both active for the Week 3 game against the New York Jets. Both were questionable for the game.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery likely for MNF

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 08:06:41 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is expected to play Monday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery ($7,200; 14.4% of your cap) was gimpy last week and is an expensive option this week. The New York Jets are likely to be without CB Dee Milliner (ankle, quadriceps), and Jeffery could have a good matchup depending on how the Jets plan to attack the Bears' offense.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery listed as questionable

Sat, 20 Sep 2014 11:03:19 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery a limited participant

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 14:06:37 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was limited in practice for the second straight day Friday, Sept. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery should be able to suit up unless he suffers a setback tomorrow. On Monday night, he has a good matchup against the New York Jets, making his $7,200 FantasyScore price attractive.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery limited Thursday

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 14:53:27 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery had three catches for 47 yards in Week 2 after being questionable, and his injury is considered more serious than fellow receiver Brandon Marshall. However, it's a good sign that Jeffery is already limited in the first practice of the week. Assuming he's healthy, Jeffery ($7,200 at FantasyScore) could be in line for a fine payout.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery limps through game

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 20:45:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) played in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers, and he was held to three receptions and 47 yards with no scores.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery was visibly limping on some of his routes and clearly was not 100 percent. For FantasyScore owners in future weeks, wait to see some improvement before risking a roster spot on him again.

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 06:15:21 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is likely to miss the game Sunday, Sept. 14, on Sunday Night Football. A source said they're 75 percent sure that Jeffery won't play in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery will cost you $5,700 (11.4% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week, but you should probably avoid him altogether because it will be difficult to swap him out Sunday night.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery questionable Sunday

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 13:07:00 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers after practicing in a limited fashion Friday, Sept. 12, and taking part in some of the full team drills. Head coach Marc Trestman said the team will continue to monitor Jeffery's status before Sunday, Sept. 14. Jeffery was a little guarded when asked if he thinks he'd play against the Niners.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery will cost you $5,700 at FantasyScore against San Fran. To be safe, you may want to avoid Jeffery, especially since he doesn't play until the afternoon on Sunday.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery misses practice again

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 13:50:52 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery's availability in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers is unknown at this point. We'll probably have a better idea on his status tomorrow, but because he's missed two practices already, that's not a good sign. Prepare to avoid him at FantasyScore to be safe.

Bears | No practice for Alshon Jeffery

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 16:37:33 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, due to his hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery is a bit of a question mark for potential owners in FantasyScore for Week 2. Wait until Friday to get a better idea on his status. He faces a somewhat decent matchup against San Francisco's banged up secondary.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery not practicing

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 12:21:09 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery is probably continuing to be cautious with the hamstring injury by sitting out of practice. With a FantasyScore price of $5,700 (11.4% of cap), Jeffery would be a nice addition to your team.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery was cautious with injury

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 11:05:23 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) took the cautious approach not to re-enter the team's Week 1 game against the Buffalo Bills Sunday, Sept. 7, after being injured in the third quarter, and he didn't return in the fourth quarter or for overtime. "I expected to go," Jeffery said, "but we were just being cautious." Jeffery was mobile enough to celebrate with WR Brandon Marshall after a touchdown late in the third quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery's injury doesn't sound very serious. It would probably take a setback this week to keep him from playing in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers. He'll face a better defense this week, but as is always the case, he'd make a fine addition to your weekly lineup at FantasyScore at $5,700 (11.4% of cap).

Bears | No limp for Alshon Jeffery

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 15:35:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) missed the fourth quarter and overtime of the Week 1 game against the Buffalo Bills due to a hamstring injury. Head coach Marc Trestman said Sunday, Sept. 7, that Jeffery was prepared to re-enter the game. "Alshon was prepared to go in there at specific times. I'll just leave it at that." Jeffery did not appear to be walking with a limp or any type of discomfort after the game.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners can't complain too vehemently, as at least Jeffery snagged five balls for 71 yards before departing for good.

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 10:20:35 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) left practice early Monday, July 28, because of a sore foot.

Fantasy Tip: The injury does not sound serious, but the team could be cautious with him and have him sit out a few days. Jeffery should be a starting wide receiver in all leagues if he is healthy.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery having great season

Thu, 24 Oct 2013 15:34:09 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is tied with Denver Broncos WR Eric Decker for the most receiving yards in the league in the last five weeks, with 561. Jeffery leads his team in yards over WR Brandon Marshall (540).

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery has been one of the nice suprises for fantasy owners this year, but his value may have already reached its peak now that Jay Cutler (groin) is out. Jeffery is unlikely to be as productive with Josh McCown running the offense.

Bears | Jay Cutler may have serious injury

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 10:19:37 -0700

The Chicago Bears are awaiting the MRI results on Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (groin) Monday, Oct. 21, and they are bracing themselves for bad news. Cutler could be out for most of the remaining 10 weeks of the season if it's a serious groin injury. QB Josh McCown would take over for Cutler if he has to miss any time. The Bears would likely re-sign QB Jordan Palmer to back up McCown.

Fantasy Tip: If you own Cutler, starting making plans to add another quarterback. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, as well as Martellus Bennett, will likely suffer if Cutler misses most of the rest of the year.

Bears | Brandon Marshall taken out of game

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 09:53:31 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall caught just four passes for 30 yards in the team's Week 5 loss to the New Orleans Saints, and QB Jay Cutler targeted him only five times. The Saints double covered Marshall for the majority of the game. "They weren't going to let him have a good day," Cutler said of New Orleans' defense. "They decided, 'Hey, it's not going to happen.' They were going to take him out of the ball game. He still made some plays for us. He might be frustrated, but we just have to keep getting better and better, and he understands that."

Marshall voiced some frustration over his role as a decoy, but head coach Marc Trestman said: "I want to get Brandon the ball. We want to get Brandon the ball. There were a couple of shots early. Jay looked back and he was open a couple of times, then protection got in his face and he was forced to move, which was disappointing. That starts with me. I've got to do a better job of getting him involved."

Fantasy Tip: Opposing defenses are starting to take Marshall out of the game with double teams, freeing up more looks for Alshon Jeffery and Matt Forte. Marshall won't be held down forever, but there will be more frustrating games like this in the future.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery breaks team record

Sun, 06 Oct 2013 15:23:50 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery had 10 receptions for 218 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the New Orleans Saints. He set the franchise record with the yardage mark. The previous mark was 214 yards set by WR Harlong Hill in 1954.

Fantasy Tip: No one saw this giant performance coming. Despite the huge stat line, Jeffery remains more of a WR3/4 or flex play in most fantasy formats going forward.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (hip) expects to have a full workload during training camp, which begins Friday, July 26. WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring), who missed organized team activities in June with a pulled hamstring, is also expected to be fully healthy. "No limitations," Marshall said, "but we're gonna be smart. I'm going on my eighth year, (have) had a few hip surgeries, nothing major. But at the same time, we start playing games in September. So that's what I'm preparing for. It's important to get out there with your teammates, build that chemistry, learn the offense, get reps. But at the same time, if I'm not healthy, all that doesn't matter. So I'm going to listen to my body, and go as it tells me."

Bears | Three locks at WR, open after that

Tue, 23 Jul 2013 08:18:40 -0700

Chicago Bears WRs Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Earl Bennett are locks for the 53-man roster, but after that it is wide open. WRs Joe Anderson and Eric Weems might lock up a fourth receiver job, and could be battling each other since they are each solid on special teams. WR Devin Aromashodu is in the mix for a job, and then there is seventh-round pick Marquess Wilson and WR Devin Hester, who is more known for his prowess as a return man. The team is likely to keep five receivers plus Hester.

Mentally he's been locked in since we got started," receivers coach Mike Groh said Friday, June 14. "He's made good improvement on the field with things (we) wanted to work on, and in terms of grasp of offense, he's where he should be."
