2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


This year, the Bears are going to lean on Jeffery as the number one option at WR. His 2014 season (85/1133 and 10 TDs) was a step down from his breakthrough 2013 year (89/1421 and seven TDs). Overall, he had almost the same number of targets (148 in 2013 and 145 in 2014). The decrease in production was due to fewer yards per catch (16.0 in 2013 and 13.3 in 2014). Last year, Jeffery finished with four 100-yard receiving games and five games with 12 targets or more. Over his last 10 starts, Alshon recorded more than 95 yards receiving just once. His was successful early on in the season when Marshall was used as decoy after suffering an ankle injury. Throughout Jeffery's short career, he's caught 58.1 percent of his targets. Jeffery has upside at the goal line plus he'll have value in the deep passing game when matched with one-on-one coverage. His opportunity has a chance to grow by 10 percent in 2015, which gives him an outside shot at 100 catches with over 1300 yards and double digit TDs. The development of Chicago's offensive line will be the key to his opportunity. Alshon is an excellent top-10 WR in Fantasy Football this year.

Latest Update

Sep-03-15 Bears WR Alshon Jeffery spotted catching passes prior to Thursday's game

Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was spotted on the field before Thursday night's preseason game catching some passes during warm ups. Jeffery hasn't practiced since August 12 due to what the Bears were calling a mild-calf strain. However, they have proven to be blatant liars this season. Our very own Jeremy Stoltz of believes this has become cause for concern and if he's not practicing early next week, his Week 1 availability may be in jeopardy.

Fantasy Analysis:

This whole thing has seemed suspect from the start. The Bears becoming known liars has not helped. Jeffery's injury has always been more serious than the team led on. Still, we don't know how serious it is. Jeffery is being drafted as the WR10. Hopefully he's back soon, because he's well worth his ADP if healthy.
