Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford, RB Ka'Deem Carey, RB Jordan Howard and RB Jacquizz Rodgers will be part of a committee in the backfield, and head coach John Fox plans to limit their workloads and ride the hot hand. The team wants Langford to run with a wider base and gain more yards after contact. Carey needs to build on his toughness and become a more complete back. Both figure to be part of the committee approach. Howard adds a bruiser skill set in short-yardage and goal line situations.
Fantasy Tip: The reporter scribed that it "promises to be hell for fantasy football owners." Langford figures to be the leader of the pack, but he's not someone you can depend on week to week unless he takes off from the gate. He's a high-end RB3 in fantasy that could be maligned to good matchups for a flex play. Carey and Howard are RB5 projects that you can grab in hopes that they become said hot hand. Rodgers has a ways to go before he's an intriguing chip in fantasy with three backs possibly ahead of him.

Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford will battle with RBs Jordan Howard, Ka'Deem Carey and Jacquizz Rodgers for touches in a crowded backfield during offseason workouts. Head coach John Fox is intent on running with a committee approach after the departure of RB Matt Forte. Langford has a leg up after scoring seven touchdowns in his rookie season. However, he had only 3.6 yards per carry and 1.13 yards after contact, which ranked second to last out of 47 players with 100 carries, according to ESPN Stats and Information. Langford must also work on improving his hands after struggling with drops in 2015. Howard's bruising style appeals to the team as a complement to Langford's speed. Carey is the only back that wasn't acquired by the current coaching staff, and he's being pushed to become more versatile and to play better on third downs. Rodgers it the veteran and could be trusted more than any other rusher on third downs early in the year.
Fantasy Tip: This makes things a little frustrating for fantasy owners, and it could be a fluid situation in terms of touches, at least early in the year. Langford has the leg up and should be the first back of this group drafted in fantasy leagues. He has more appeal in PPR formats as an RB3. Howard is a wildcard that could vulture touchdowns from Langford and is an RB5 flyer in standard-scoring leagues. Carey and Rodgers would likely need an injury to see significant touches and are mainly handcuffs.

Chicago Bears RB Ka'Deem Carey is liked by head coach John Fox, and the team appears thrilled about the duo of Carey and RB Jeremy Langford at running back.
Fantasy Tip: Carey has a 79-317-2 (4.0 yard per rush) line for his career and is shaping up to be in the RB4 conversation if the team is this high on him. Langford is likely ahead of him, though.

Chicago Bears RB Ka'Deem Carey rushed seven times for 16 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he also had a touchdown reception on a one-yard grab.
Fantasy Tip: Carey was a prolific rusher at the University of Arizona, but with the likes of Matt Forte and Jeremy Langford on the roster, he hasn't had much of a chance to show what he can do. Perhaps down the stretch he is auditioning for a job, either in Chicago, or elsewhere. Perhaps the emergence of Langford and Carey could signal the end of Forte in Chicago. It will be an interesting offseason for the Bears.

Chicago Bears DT Bruce Gaston (illness), TE Zach Miller (ribs) and S Antrel Rolle (knee) are questionable for Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers. RB Ka'Deem Carey (concussion), OT Kyle Long (neck) and LB Pernell McPhee (knee) are probable. Gaston and Rolle didn't practice Friday, Dec. 4. McPhee and Miller were limited, while Carey and Long practiced in full.
Thu, 03 Dec 2015 16:29:33 -0800
Chicago Bears DT Bruce Gaston (illness) and S Antrel Rolle (knee) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 3. LB Pernell McPhee (knee) and TE Zachary Miller (ribs) were limited. RB Ka'Deem Carey (concussion) and OT Kyle Long (neck) participated fully.
Wed, 02 Dec 2015 16:47:31 -0800
Chicago Bears S Antrel Rolle (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 2. OT Kyle Long (neck) and LB Pernell McPhee (knee) were limited, while RB Ka'Deem Carey (concussion) and OG Matt Slauson (toe) practiced in full.
Thu, 26 Nov 2015 16:22:18 -0800
The Chicago Bears have declared FS Antrel Rolle, WR Eddie Royal, DB Jacoby Glenn, RB Ka'Deem Carey, TE Martellus Bennett, OT Nick Becton, DL Will Sutton inactive for Week 12.
Wed, 25 Nov 2015 11:48:58 -0800
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (knee) and RB Ka'Deem Carey (head) were ruled out for Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 26.
Fantasy Tip: Marquess Wilson ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) had four grabs for 102 yards last week and is a low-end flyer against the Green Bay Packers on FantasyScore.
Tue, 24 Nov 2015 13:46:19 -0800
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (knee) and RB Ka'Deem Carey (head) did not practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 24.
Fantasy Tip: Royal ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) hasn't played since Nov. 1 and seems unlikely to suit up on the short week. You can avoid him everywhere. Carey ($2,000) wouldn't even be a viable daily pick on Thanksgiving if he were to be active with Matt Forte expected to return from injury.
Mon, 23 Nov 2015 13:43:39 -0800
Chicago Bears TE Martellus Bennett (ribs), RB Ka'Deem Carey (head) and WR Eddie Royal (knee) did not practice Monday, Nov. 23. The Bears didn't actually practice Monday, so the designations are an estimation.
Fantasy Tip: With a short week on tap, all three players are risky on FantasyScore. We don't expect Royal or Carey to play at all. Bennett is trickier, and you'll have to keep a close eye on his progress leading up to Thursday. If he does play, he's not a bad FantasyScore selection against a Packers team allowing the seventh-most PPR fantasy points (15.9) to tight ends per game this year.
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 12:35:47 -0800
Chicago Bears RB Ka'Deem Carey (concussion) suffered a concussion during the team's Week 11 game and will not return to the game.
Mon, 09 Nov 2015 21:50:28 -0800
Chicago Bears RB Ka'Deem Carey ran seven times for 28 yards in the Week 9 game against the San Diego Chargers Monday, Nov. 9.
Fantasy Tip: Carey ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) saw his first meaningful work of the season with Matt Forte on the shelf. Look for Carey to serve as a fill-in behind Jeremy Langford in Week 10 if Matt Forte is unable to start.
Sun, 01 Nov 2015 08:42:19 -0800
The Chicago Bears have declared DL Bruce Gaston, DL Cameron Meredith, C Hroniss Grasu, OT Jermon Bushrod, RB Ka'Deem Carey, LB Shea McClellin, CB Terrance Mitchell inactive for Week 8.

Wed, 20 May 2015 18:19:02 -0700
Chicago Bears RB Ka'Deem Carey likely will need a strong preseason in order to make the final roster.
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 18:20:44 -0700
Chicago Bears RB Shaun Draughn is projected to not only make the 53-man roster, but he is slotted as the primary backup to starter RB Matt Forte. FB Tony Fiammetta and rookie RB Ka'Deem Carey project as the No. 3 and No. 4 running backs.
Fri, 15 Aug 2014 19:40:28 -0700
Chicago Bears RB Shaun Draughn was praised for his pass-catching ability by head coach Marc Trestman, who said that Draughn and rookie RB Ka'Deem Carey are competing for the primary backup job behind RB Matt Forte.
Fantasy Tip: Carey came into camp with more hype after starring at the University of Arizona, but it's Draughn who appears to have a leg up for the job right now. It would take just one injury to Forte to give both Carey and Draughn fantasy relevance.
Fri, 30 May 2014 16:53:18 -0700
Chicago Bears RB Ka'Deem Carey said he expects to receive a good amount of carries this season. "They expect me to go out there and play as my first time behind [RB Matt Forte], and go out there and do what I do best," Carey said.
Fantasy Tip: Carey will be behind Forte on the depth chart but should have a solid role on offense this upcoming season. Owners should consider Carey as a late-round flier or a handcuff to Forte during drafts.
Wed, 14 May 2014 12:39:41 -0700
