Alshon Jeffery caught three passes for 80 yards in Chicago's Week 17 loss to the Packers.

Jeffery's final catch should have gone for a 68-yard touchdown, but he was incorrectly ruled down at the one-yard line. For reasons unknown, Chicago declined to challenge. Jeffery caps his breakout sophomore campaign with 89 catches for 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns. His yards led the team. Jeffery will have a hard time matching the yardage in 2014 with Brandon Marshall still in his prime, but is a bonafide WR1 with a ceiling that's through the roof in Dynasty leagues.

Alshon Jeffery had six catches for 76 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 loss to the Eagles.

Jeffery was held out of the end-zone this week after scoring four touchdowns in his last three games. He shared the team lead with nine targets, but was held to just two catches in the second half. The Bears take on the Packers to decide the NFC North in their regular season finale. Jeffery had five catches for 60 yards and a touchdown against the Packers back in Week 9.

Alshon Jeffery caught five passes for 72 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's Week 15 win at Cleveland.

Jay Cutler (ankle) was back in the mix and looked for his bro Brandon Marshall relentlessly (13 targets). Jeffery ended up with only five targets, but he made yet another "play of the week" kind of catch. With 11 minutes left in the game and the Bears down by seven, Cutler essentially threw a high Hail Mary into double coverage and Jeffery somehow came down with it for a 45-yard score -- his fourth touchdown in the last three weeks. Jeffery is going to run free all day against the Eagles in Week 16, so getting a few less targets at the expense of Marshall isn't a concern. The second-year man will be a borderline WR1.

Alshon Jeffery caught five passes for 84 yards and one touchdown in Week 14 against the Cowboys.

Jeffery drew a team-high nine targets and seems to be Josh McCown's go-to guy. The touchdown is a catch you'll have to see to believe. Just before halftime, Jeffery beat B.W. Webb to the back, right corner of the end zone and vice-gripped a ball with his steel-trap mitts as he was falling to the ground for a 25-yard score. Jeffery could have easily had another touchdown earlier in the game, but he kind of quit on his route while McCown led him too far. Jeffery is producing like a WR1 in an offense where there are a ton of balls to go around. We'll conservatively have him ranked as a WR2 next week against the Browns.

Alshon Jeffery went off for 12 catches, 249 yards, and two touchdowns in the Bears' Week 13 loss to the Vikings.

Jeffery was a monster over the middle in the first half. In the final two frames, the second-year breakout wide receiver went off. He torched Chris Cook for an 80-yard touchdown on a catch-and-run play, and then simply outjumped and out-physicaled Cook for his second score, the second from 46 yards away. The Bears' quarterback situation hasn't mattered for Jeffery. He's been producing like a borderline WR1 throughout the season. The Bears face the Cowboys next in a possible shootout.

Alshon Jeffery caught four passes for 42 yards in Chicago's Week 12 loss to the Rams.

Jeffery added one rush for four yards, and had a 27-yard run called back by a dubious holding penalty. Jeffery got out-targeted 12-8 by Brandon Marshall in getting held below 80 yards receiving for just the third time in eight games. Jeffery will be a borderline WR1 in a juicy Week 13 matchup with the Vikings.

Alshon Jeffery caught seven passes for 83 yards in Week 11 versus the Ravens.

Jeffery was targeted a game-high 11 times, one more than Brandon Marshall, and led the team in receiving. He continues to impress as a well-rounded receiver. Jeffery can rack up yards post-catch and is a legit vertical threat. His game wasn't affected much by the strong winds and sloppy weather. Jeffery continues to produce like a solid WR2 and will be a top-20 receiver next week against the Rams.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 08:13:00 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught nine passes for 114 yards in Week 10 against the Lions.

Jeffery was targeted a game-high 18 times, six more looks than Brandon Marshall saw from Jay Cutler and Josh McCown. Jeffery could have had a bigger day, but he was stripped of a 14-yard touchdown when officials deemed he bobbled the ball out of bounds. It was Jeffery's fourth 100-yard game of the season, with two of them coming against Detroit. He's a legitimate WR2. The Bears and Jeffery take on the Ravens next weekend.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 05:36:00 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught five passes for 60 yards and one touchdown in Week 9 against the Packers.

Jeffery was targeted nine times. The Chicago passing game didn't skip a beat with Josh McCown filling in for an injured Jay Cutler (groin). McCown had no issues completing short, quick passes, and he eventually found Jeffery for a six-yard score in the third quarter. It proved to be the game-winning touchdown. Jeffery beat Davon House and high-pointed a jump ball with his strong mitts on the play. At the season's midway point, Jeffery is on pace to catch 76 passes for 1,242 yards and six touchdowns. He's a legit WR2 in this offense.

Alshon Jeffery caught four passes for 105 yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Washington.

Jeffery continues to impress. He went up over the middle and took an illegal blow from head-hunting Brandon Merriweather, but held onto the ball and only missed a couple plays. Jeffery now has three 100-yard games in the last four weeks and is averaging 9.0 targets per day during that span. He's a WR2 candidate with Jay Cutler (groin), but will only be a WR3 if Josh McCown is forced into starts.

Alshon Jeffery caught just one pass for 27 yards in Chicago's Week 6 win over the Giants.

Coming off a 10/218/1 demolition of the Saints, Jeffery drew only five targets. He hurt his cause with a drop, and wasn't on the same page with Jay Cutler on two potential deep balls. Despite the limited looks, Jeffery was inches away from a much better night. Jeffery was bound to experience some hiccups as he draws more defensive attention, but he'll remain a high-end WR3 for Week 7 against the Redskins' sub-par secondary.

Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is officially probable for Thursday night's Week 6 game against the Giants.

Jeffery was limited in practice this week, but his status was never in doubt. He's locked in as a high-end WR3 against the Giants' 22nd ranked pass defense.

Alshon Jeffery (ankle) remained limited in Bears practice Tuesday.

There's been no indication Jeffery's "injury" is a concern. Averaging 7.3 catches for 125.3 yards over his past three games, Jeffery is locked in as a high-end WR3 against the Giants' terrible defense.

Brandon Marshall said Alshon Jeffery "could be the best to ever do it."

Marshall was heaping hyperbole on his teammate following Jeffery's 10/218/1 line against the Saints. But it's obvious the Bears found a gem by scooping up Jeffery in the second round of the 2012 draft. He would have been a surefire first-rounder if not for a disastrous final season at South Carolina that saw him fall victim to weight gain and poor quarterback play. Jeffery will come back to earth as defenses start taking him more seriously, but he's a surefire WR3 against the Giants Thursday night.
