2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Nov-18-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (11/18): Jeffery has been one of the top receivers in the league when healthy. However, he's been plagued by injury all season. He's dealt with hamstring, calf and groin injuries. In the three games he started and finished healthy, he caught 28 passes for 414 yards and two touchdowns. Unfortunately he's only appeared in five games and was limited for two of them. Still, he did total eight receptions for 101 yards in those games as well.
UPDATE (10/1): A hamstring injury has derailed the opening weeks of the season for Alshon Jeffery. Even upon his return, Fantasy owners should be mindful of a possible re-injury, but also the Bears' offensive struggles. Despite playing only one game, Jeffery is still the position leader with 78 receiving yards. Jeffery and this offense have to be downgraded, especially if Jimmy Clausen continues to start in the short-term.
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 1,300 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.
