The Chicago Bears are unlikely to use the seventh overall pick of the NFL Draft on a wide receiver, but the upcoming class of receivers gives them many options to complement WR Alshon Jeffery. They could look to University of Miami WR Phillip Dorsett, who ran a 4.33-second 40-yard dash in the second round. The Bears also hosted free-agent WR Brian Hartline (Dolphins) for a visit this week. After trading WR Brandon Marshall, the current roster features WRs Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani, Josh Morgan and Marquess Wilson. Jeffery may be moved to the No. 1 receiver role, but he averaged just four catches in the last three games with Marshall injured in 2014.
Fantasy Tip: Jeffery should still be fine in Chicago, but Jay Cutler's status with the team may also be in question, further muddling the picture. Jeffery should be a safe top-end WR2, at worst. Counting on him as a top WR1 may be too much, though, since he could struggle to be consistent if the Bears don't give him receiving help around him.

Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen (concussion) and S Chris Conte (back) are out for Week 17. DE Jared Allen (ribs), CB Albert Louis-Jean (hamstring) and DT Jay Ratliff (knee) are questionable. DE David Bass (knee), DT Ego Ferguson (ankle), OG Kyle Long (hip) and WR Marquess Wilson (knee) are probable.

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 12:53:41 -0800
Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson will likely be used to replace WR Brandon Marshall (ribs, lung) on the outside, while WR Josh Morgan will likely move into the slot-receiving role.
Fantasy Tip: Both Wilson and Morgan will be cheap at FantasyScore. Wilson should be the more valuable player for fantasy purposes, but he's nothing more than a flier in very deep leagues and a desperation play at FantasyScore in Week 15 and beyond.
