Chicago Bears news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 27 Jun 2016 13:43:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Langford was underwhelming last season in both the passing game and in yards per carry (3.6). He's still the Bears' starting running back, but draft him in low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 territory.

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (foot) is expected to begin the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. Wilson would not be eligible to return until Week 6 if he is placed on the PUP list to start the season. WRs Josh Bellamy and Cameron Meredith were the first two names mentioned by Biggs who could play more if Wilson is sidelined.
Fantasy Tip: Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White will take most of the targets in Chicago's offense anyway, and TE Zach Miller should see a lot of action, too. No one behind Jeffery and White on the Bears' wide receiver depth chart is worth serious fantasy consideration.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery's health has been sketchy, but he's a big target in the red zone. The parts are changing around him, and the depth chart is pretty thin behind him. He's a high-end WR2 in fantasy with some health risk.

Chicago Bears OG Cody Whitehair has been working with the first-team offense in place of OG Ted Larsen (undisclosed), and Whitehair has been one of the bright spots of the offense, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery likely will not hold out during training camp and will be the top target in the team's passing game in 2016. He is one of the better fantasy receivers available and will be an early-round pick in all leagues.

Fantasy Tip: The injury will likely cost Wilson part of the 2016 season, and Eddie Royal or Deonte Thompson should see larger roles. Neither possess enough luster to warrant a WR5 flyer unless something changes in camp. Wilson was a fringe WR5 flyer that can go undrafted for now.

Chicago Bears LB Pernell McPhee (knee) and OL Ted Larsen (undisclosed) were not present for minicamp Tuesday, June 14. McPhee is recovering from offseason knee surgery, while head coach John Fox did not disclose Larsen's ailment.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is only worth a deep flier currently in fantasy drafts as he will at least be the No. 3 wide receiver behind Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White this year.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery said he plans to report to training camp on time. Jeffery is participating in minicamp, but did not report for organized team activities earlier this month. He is awaiting a long-term contract agreement.
Fantasy Tip: It doesn't look like a serious holdout is in the works from Jeffery. The main question should be his health, as he missed significant time last season with injuries. Assuming he's good to go for the start of the regular season, he's worth selecting as a low-end WR1.

Fantasy Tip: Jeffery trained in Florida this offseason and did not participate in the organized team activities because of his contract situation. He will be the main target in the passing game this season and should be one of the better fantasy receivers in 2016. Jeffery likely will be selected in the early rounds of drafts and will be a weekly starting candidate.

Chicago Bears DT Eddie Goldman is expected to boost the "speed" portion of his game this year. He plans to play closer to 325 pounds in 2016 after weighing 340 pounds last season. Goldman is getting a serious look as more of a run-stuffer in practices this offseason. "325 is the ideal weight for me, at least from the perspective of the coaches," Goldman said. "The effect is moving faster. My foot quickness, and it helps with your stamina, too."
