Bears WR Alshon Jeffery fully practices Friday

Chicago Bears rookie wide receiver Alshon Jeffery @TheJefferyShow practiced in full for the first time on Friday since breaking his hand on Oct. 7. "Alshon was playing great ball when he hurt his hand. Another big target. Another guy for Jason (Campbell) to throw to if it comes to that. Another guy with some size to block if we lean more toward the run," head coach Lovie Smith said. Jeffery has missed the last four games. He is currently questionable for Monday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Analysis:

Jeffery is not quite a viable fantasy option, but his return will help the Bears' supporting cast. It should free up Brandon Marshall @BMarshall from double teams. San Francisco might be less likely to stack the box if Matt Forte @MattForte22 is having a good day. One thing the 49ers will do is utilize a lot of man coverage so Jeffery and Marshall will have their chances to make plays downfield. A win here would give either team the inside track toward a opening round bye in the playoffs, while the loser would allow their division race to get that much closer.
