Fantasy Tip: If signed, Gresham would play behind TE Martellus Bennett and wouldn't have a lot of value unless Bennett suffers an injury.

Fantasy Tip: It seems like the ideal situation for the Bears at wide receiver would be to start Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White on the outside with Royal playing in the slot. Royal was a hit or miss player with the San Diego Chargers, but he could end up being an under-the-radar player in PPR leagues.

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White is slated to be in the Bears' starting lineup, according to Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com. White had spent time with the second team during organized team activities earlier this offseason.
Fantasy Tip: It shouldn't be a huge surprise if White ends up starting, especially since Chicago spent their seventh overall pick on him in the NFL Draft. While there may still be some kinks to work out at first, White could at least end up in WR4 territory at season's end.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery has been working out with former teammate and now New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall. The two remain close friends and have been working out at Fit Speed Athletic Performance in Chicago.
Fantasy Tip: Jeffery can certainly still learn from the veteran Marshall. Jeffery is the far more appealing fantasy option for 2015, but Marshall has value as a late-round pick, as he'll be the No. 1 option for the Jets.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler may need to win in 2015 to stay in Chicago, suggests Jeff Dickerson of ESPN. Cutler has over $47 million guaranteed remaining on his contract, but the Bears could move on if Cutler struggles again in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: Cutler has thrown double-digit interceptions in all but one of his six seasons in Chicago. The Bears' offensive line can share some of the blame for Cutler's struggles, but he has enough weapons in the offense to post better numbers than he has been. Cutler shouldn't be drafted as a QB1 in 12-team leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Royal is expected to have a solid role in the passing game this season, so the coaches may want to look for other players to fill the role. Royal could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues this season since he has played with Jay Cutler earlier in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Forte should continue to have a big role in the offense this season and will be valuable in all fantasy leagues. He should be selected in one of the first few rounds of drafts and likely will be an every-week starter.

Chicago Bears rookie RB Jeremy Langford offers the Bears speed they didn't have last season. Langford ran a 4.4 second 40-yard dash in the NFL Combine this offseason. Langford was taken in the fourth round and will compete with RBs Jacquizz Rodgers, Ka'Deem Carey, Daniel Thomas and Senorise Perry for backup duties to RB Matt Forte.

Fantasy Tip: With Brandon Marshall leaving in the offseason, Wilson has a chance to see some steady playing time in 2015, especially if rookie Kevin White isn't ready to start in Week 1. Wilson could make a nice early-season sleeper if he lines up across from Alshon Jeffrey for a few games, but White will be the receiver to own in the long run.

Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford's speed has stood out, according to general manager Ryan Pace. "Standout trait with him is really his speed," Pace said. "We feel like he's got a lot of upside. He's played multiple positions, so he's still getting better as a running back. This guy's speed stands out and we're excited to have him here."
Fantasy Tip: Langford will be one of several backs in the mix to see touches behind Matt Forte, and while Langford has a chance to win the primary backup role, he will still need something to happen to Forte before he will have much fantasy value.

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White has impressed offensive coordinator Adam Gase with his size and explosiveness. "Really, I see him as an outside receiver but what's dangerous about this guy, he can catch a quick slant or he can attack and go 99 yards," Gase said. "He has that kind of playmaking ability."
Fantasy Tip: White isn't a lock to open the season as the No. 2 receiver across from Alshon Jeffery, but the rookie should take over the job at some point. Draft him as a WR5, but his value should only increase over the course of the year.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler worked out with some of his offensive teammates at Vanderbilt University this week. WR Eddie Royal, WR Kevin White and TE Martellus Bennett were among the players in attendance.
Fantasy Tip: Cutler has had some down performances the last few seasons but should have several weapons to work with this season. Cutler probably is not a starting quarterback in fantasy at this point but could be a solid No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Among other things, new head coach John Fox is known for running the football, which bodes well for Forte, at least on paper. Forte could be past his prime at 30 years old, and Fox may want to use him more sparingly than he has been used in previous seasons. Whether he sees more carries, fewer carries or the same amount of carries, Forte should still be drafted as a top-10 fantasy running back, with more value in PPR leagues.
