2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


Injuries really crushed Alshon in his fourth season in the NFL. After catching five of his 11 targets for 78 yards in Week 1, he missed the next four games with a hamstring injury. To be fair, Jeffery did enter the season with a calf issue which happened in mid-August, so he was an easy avoid on draft day if a Fantasy owner wanted to avoid injury risk. When Alshon returned to the lineup in Week 6, he strung together three elite games (28/414/2 on 42 targets). His success was short-lived as he left his game in Week 9 with a groin injury that cost him another game. Jeffery offered steady value in his next three games (7/90, 4/85, and 6/107/1) before suffering another hamstring injury in Week 14 that cost him the remainder of the season. In his two previous years, Jeffery had over 80 catches with over 1100 yards and 17 TDs (89/1421/7 and 85/1133/10). He did this with Brandon Marshall as the lead WR. He looked comfortable as the WR1 for the Bears in 2015 with a skill set to attract a high volume of looks. The Bears don't have many other strong receiving options so a healthy Alshon will rank in the top 10 in the league in targets. Cutler will look his way early and often. I expect 100+ catches for 1300+ yards and a chance at double digit TDs. A top Fantasy owner in the high-stakes market would love to get him as their WR2. In a way, he offers the same skill set as Calvin Johnson due to his combination of size and speed.
