Alshon Jeffery caught 5-of-7 targets for 71 yards in Week 3 against Dallas
Playing through a knee injury, Jeffery didn’t have a huge role, finishing behind Kevin White (14) and Zach Miller (9) in targets. He didn’t get any red-zone looks, with Zach Miller getting both Chicago touchdowns. It’s the third straight game Jeffery has been held out of the end-zone. Jeffery could get a boost if Jay Cutler returns this week. Sep 25 - 11:49 PM

Alshon Jeffery (knee) is active for Week 3 against Dallas.

Jeffery was fully expected to play after returning to practice Friday. Even with Jay Cutler missing his second week, he's a low-end WR1. Chicago's inactives are LB Danny Trevathan, CB Kyle Fuller, RB Ka'Deem Carey, CB Bryce Callahan, DL Eddie Goldman, and OL Eric Kush.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Alshon Jeffery (knee) is expected to play Sunday night at Dallas.

Fantasy owners got a mild scare when Jeffery was held out of Thursday's practice, but he returned to a limited session Friday and should be loaded into fantasy lineups. Jeffery's outlook is barely hindered by the Bears' "loss" of Jay Cutler, who was playing poorly. Brian Hoyer can do just as well as Cutler did.

Alshon Jeffery (knee) returned to a limited practice on Friday and is questionable for Week 3 against the Cowboys.

Coach John Fox said Jeffery is dealing with "knee soreness." Jeffery sat out Thursday's practice after being limited on Wednesday. It's possible the Bears were just managing his reps. True to form, the perpetually frustrating Jeffery is playing in the Sunday night game this week. We'd expect him to suit up, though fantasy owners would be wise to have a contingency plan in place.

Alshon Jeffery (knee) was downgraded to "DNP" in Thursday's practice.

Jeffery was "limited" on Wednesday. "Just something that we're monitoring," coach John Fox said, apparently seeking a competitive advantage. "We'll see what tomorrow brings." It's unknown when Jeffery suffered his latest "injury." No player in the league gets listed with more random practice ailments. It's possibly just gamesmanship on the part of the Bears. For now, we'd still consider Jeffery likely to suit up against the Cowboys, but it can't be considered a given. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Chicago is playing in the Sunday night game.

Alshon Jeffery (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's not a big concern, but any time Jeffery gets listed with an injury it's notable. He missed so much time last season with nagging issues. The good news this time is that it's not a soft-tissue -- hamstring, calf, quad -- ailment that he seemed to battle all of 2015. Jeffery should be fine for Week 3 at the Cowboys, though his fantasy owners would surely appreciate more targets.

Alshon Jeffery caught 5-of-7 targets for 96 yards in the Bears' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

Jeffery led the Bears in targets, but once again the ball was spread around like it was in the season opener. With Kevin White and Eddie Royal back healthy after missing much of last season, Jeffery doesn't appear to have a dominant market share on the targets in Chicago. He still was easily the best offensive player on the field for the Bears, setting up their lone offensive touchdown with a 49-yard catch on a double-move past rookie CB Jalen Mills. He also drew a DPI penalty in the end zone two plays later. Jeffery remains a WR1, but it would be nice to see him back in the 10-12 targets range. He's seen just 13 through two games. Jeffery gets a decent matchup on the road against the Cowboys in Week 3.
Sep 19 - 11:49 PM

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski expects the Bears to scheme ways to get Alshon Jeffery lined up against Eagles seventh-round CB Jalen Mills in Week 2.

The Eagles are expected to be without No. 1 CB Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) on Monday night, leaving veteran Nolan Carroll (5'11/205) on one side and Mills (6'/191) on the other. Jeffery is one of the better deep threats in the league, and the Eagles surrendered long passes of 58 and 44 yards Week 1 against the Browns. Jeffery went 4-106 against the Texans and is an elite WR1 play.
Sep 14 - 10:02 AM

Alshon Jeffery caught 4-of-6 targets for 105 yards in the Bears' Week 1 loss to the Texans.

Jeffery opened the game on fire, making a great leaping grab down the sideline for 29 yards and drawing a defensive pass interference to set up the opening touchdown two plays later. He also added 54 yards on a throw-and-hope bomb from Jay Cutler to set up another touchdown late in the first half. Unfortunately, it was his last catch of the game as the Bears' offense went into hibernation after halftime. The overall quality of the offense is a concern, but Jeffery is a WR1 as long as he is healthy.
Sep 11 - 4:53 PM

Alshon Jeffery hauled in 2-of-6 targets for 18 yards Saturday against the Chiefs.

Jeffery had a rough afternoon, dropping at least two passes including what would have been a long gain in the first half. He redeemed himself somewhat with a great catch to start the second half, but it was a bad day for the entire offense. Despite his struggles Saturday, Jeffery should return back-end WR1 value as long as he is healthy.
Aug 27 - 3:43 PM

Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) returned to practice Monday.

Jeffery spent almost a week on the sidelines with a "mild hamstring" injury. It is great he was able to return so quickly, but it is a reminder of how susceptible he has been to soft-tissue injuries. Jeffery is still a borderline WR1 because of his weekly upside.
Aug 8 - 11:46 AM

Alshon Jeffery has missed the past two days of practice with a "mild hamstring" injury.

Typically, we would wait a few more days to make note of this injury. But since it's Jeffery, it's worth bringing up after he missed so much time last season with multiple soft-tissue injuries. Consider Jeffery day to day for the moment, but as we've seen in the past, these things can linger with him.
Aug 4 - 12:38 PM

Bears GM Ryan Pace said Alshon Jeffery "knows he has to stay healthy."

The Bears refused to pay Jeffery elite receiver money this offseason at least in part because of injury and conditioning concerns. He could put most of those questions to bed by producing a healthy and effective season. Still only 26, the smart money is on Jeffery landing a big-money deal next spring.
Jul 28 - 10:45 AM

ESPN Chicago's Jeff Dickerson questions whether the Bears view Alshon Jeffery as "a true No. 1 receiver."

"Chicago’s approach in negotiations suggests they view Jeffery more as a "1A" or elite No. 2 wideout," Dickerson continued. The Bears certainly were not willing to give Jeffery elite money this summer, but it was assumed his injury history was the main concern. Perhaps the Bears also question his ability, but his 5.6/82/.5 per-game average over the last three seasons would seem to fly in the face of those concerns. If Jeffery stays healthy this season, he is going to get paid No. 1 money by someone next spring. He is still only 26 years old.
Jul 16 - 11:33 AM

The Bears failed to reach a long-term deal with franchise-tagged WR Alshon Jeffery before Friday's deadline.

Jeffery wanted Dez Bryant money but that was never going to happen after his injury-plagued 2015 campaign. The 26-year-old still offers WR1 potential and could be in for a massive payday if he stays healthy in 2016. He'll play this year under the $14.599 million franchise tag.
