Josh Bellamy caught 3-of-7 targets for 45 yards in the Bears' Week 14 loss to the Lions.

He finished second on the team in targets behind Cameron Meredith. On a weekly basis, the Bears' pass-catcher corps has become a crapshoot to try to forecast. They are also getting back Alshon Jeffery from suspension soon.

Josh Bellamy is active for Week 14 against the Lions.

Josh Bellamy (shoulder) is questionable for Week 14 against the Lions.

Bears WR Josh Bellamy (shoulder) remained "limited" on Thursday.

Bellamy could be starting Sunday's game against the Lions depending on Marquess Wilson's (groin) health. Bellamy has eight grabs on 15 targets over the Bears' past two games. He's an emergency WR5.

Josh Bellamy caught 4-of-6 targets for 93 yards in Week 13 against the 49ers.

He also had a 12-yard run. Bellamy saw the majority of his snaps after Marquess Wilson went down. He led Chicago in both yards and targets, but dropped a would-be touchdown. Bellamy could start Week 14 if Wilson misses time.

The Bears are starting Josh Bellamy and Marc Mariani at wide receiver in Week 17 against the Lions.

With Zach Miller (toe) inactive, they're starting Rob Housler at tight end. The Bears have been decimated at wideout this season, losing Marquess Wilson, Alshon Jeffery, and Kevin White to year-ending injuries, and Eddie Royal to an illness and a knee injury that hampered him throughout the year.
Sun, Jan 3, 2016 11:46:00 AM

Josh Bellamy caught 4-of-5 targets for 57 yards in Week 11 against the Broncos.

Bellamy started opposite Marquess Wilson with Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal sidelined. His five targets were behind Wilson, Martellus Bennett, and Zach Miller. Bellamy won't be a fantasy option even if he draws another start in Week 12.

Josh Bellamy will start opposite Marquess Wilson with Alson Jeffery sidelined.

Bellamy managed six catches in Week 5 with Jeffery and Eddie Royal out. He'll be the No. 3 pass-game option behind Wilson and Martellus Bennett, but isn't a fantasy option.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 11:55:00 AM

Josh Bellamy (groin) is questionable for Week 6 against the Lions.

Bellamy is a game-time decision after being limited in practice. He caught 6-of-8 targets for 31 yards last week. Bellamy could make another start if Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Eddie Royal (ankle) don’t return.
