Jay Cutler said he doesn't see why Alshon Jeffery can't be a true No. 1 receiver.
"He makes big plays for us, he knows the offense, he's a big target, and I think more importantly that's the guy he wants to become," Cutler said. "He wants to become the No. 1 everyday out here." With Brandon Marshall out of town, that's just the role Jeffery will fill in 2015. He's expected to play the Demaryius Thomas spot in new OC Adam Gase's offense. A true dominator at the catch point, Jeffery is a fantasy WR1 as he enters the final year of his rookie contract. Jun 17 - 9:26 AM

New coach John Fox singled out Alshon Jeffery as someone his conditioning program will help.

Jeffery has battled some weight issues in his career and dealt with a nagging hamstring injury last year. He's still posted 174 catches, 2,554 yards and 17 touchdowns over the last two seasons, dominating at the catch point with body control. Now that Brandon Marshall is gone and Jeffery is the no-doubt No. 1 option, he better be in tip-top shape. He's going to play the Demaryius Thomas role in Adam Gase's offense.

Alshon Jeffery managed two catches for 34 yards on five targets in the Bears' Week 17 loss to the Vikings.

Jeffery was bottled up in this game by Xavier Rhodes, who has emerged as a legitimate shutdown NFL corner. It was still a highly successful age-24 season for Jeffery, who finished with an 85-1,133-10 receiving line while battling a hamstring injury on and off. He's a long-term WR1 in both Dynasty and re-draft leagues. Jeffery will enter a contract year in 2015. The Bears need to prioritize locking up Jeffery with a long-term deal.

Alshon Jeffery caught six passes for 72 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Lions.

Jeffery caught a severe case of the dropsies and ended up with an absurd five of them. On the last one, he was grasping his head in disbelief before the ball even hit the ground. Jeffery still had a nice fantasy day, getting targeted on lots of wide receiver screens and hauling in a 20-yard scoring pass from a cool and collected Jimmy Clausen in the third quarter. The Bears wrap the season against the Vikings next week.

Alshon Jeffery caught four passes for 78 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' Week 15 loss to the Saints.

He was targeted a team-high nine times on a night Jay Cutler completed only 15 passes. Two of Jeffery's grabs, 42 of his yards, and a garbage-time seven-yard touchdown came on the final drive in a 31-15 whooping. Jeffery was locked in Keenan Lewis' shadow coverage for much of the night, but was assigned CB Brandon Dixon on the touchdown. Jeffery will be a high-end WR1 against the Lions in Week 16, but he needs Cutler to play better.

Alshon Jeffery caught 6-of-9 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's Week 14 loss to the Bears.

Jeffery's 27-yard score came with the Bears trailing 35-7 in the fourth quarter, but was an impressive dismantling of Brandon Carr. Carr had no idea where the ball was as Jeffery eased behind him. Jeffery has been up and down along with the rest of the Bears' offense this season, but finds himself sitting on a 73/949/8 line through 13 games. With Brandon Marshall (ribs) looking shaky for Week 14, Jeffery will be a high-end WR1 against the Saints.

A source tells NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) will play in Thursday night's game against the Cowboys.

Despite being listed as questionable, Jeffery was never in real danger of missing this game. Emerging as a higher-upside option than Brandon Marshall, Jeffery has 23 catches and four touchdowns over the last three weeks. He has a pristine matchup against oft-burned Cowboys CB Brandon Carr Thursday night.

Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Wed, Dec 3, 2014 01:22:00 PM

Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was downgraded to "DNP" in Tuesday's practice after being limited on Monday.

Mid-week downgrades are always alarming, but coach Marc Trestman called the move "precautionary." Even if Jeffery earns a "questionable" tag on Wednesday's injury report, he should be full go against the Cowboys on Thursday evening.

Mon, Dec 1, 2014 02:57:00 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 9-of-13 targets for 71 yards and two touchdowns in Chicago's Week 13 loss to the Lions.

Jeffery was a rare bright spot for the non-competitive Bears, often running free over the middle of the field. Both of his scores came in the first quarter, but a dinking and dunking Bears team couldn't drive the ball for the game's final 45 minutes. Now up to 67/854/7 on the season, Jeffery is on pace for 89/1,139/9. The seven scores are already as many as Jeffery had in 2013.

He saved his day with a two-yard touchdown pass on the first drive of the third quarter, and he now has three touchdowns in his last four games. Jeffery will be a solid WR1 against the Lions Thanksgiving day.
