Kevin White hauled in both of his targets for 64 yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

White had not caught a pass coming into this game, but he got a bit more run with Allen Robinson hobbled by a groin injury. That playing time almost led to a spectacular moment when White came down with the potential game-tying Hail Mary on the final play of the game, but he made the catch just short of the goal line and was pushed back by a group of defenders. Despite the big play and Robinson's injury, White is not a fantasy option.

Anthony Miller hauled in 2-of-7 targets for 35 yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

Miller earned an end-zone target in the first half, but he failed to haul it in. He came back with an important third-down conversion late in the third quarter and added a catch on the final drive, but that was it despite seven targets, although Mitchell Trubisky's play certainly did not help. Miller is just a bench stash at this point.

Taylor Gabriel hauled in 3-of-4 targets for 26 yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

With Mitchell Trubisky struggling early, Gabriel caught just one pass in the first half for seven yards. He did get a carry inside the 10-yard line in the third quarter and drew a long defensive pass interference on the next series, but this was a big letdown after back-to-back 100-yard games. He will look to get back on track next week against the Jets.

Jordan Howard rushed 12 times for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

He added nine yards on one catch. Howard continued to split carries with Tarik Cohen even when the game was close and struggled to find consistent success on the ground, but he helped out his fantasy backers with a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He appeared to have another score on the first drive of the second half, but the play was negated by an illegal formation penalty. He did surprise with a twisting catch on his only target, but Howard mostly took a backseat from that point on with the Bears trailing. He now has 14 or fewer touches in each of his last three games. Howard will be an RB3/FLEX option next week against the Jets.
Oct 21 - 5:42 PM

Allen Robinson hauled in 1-of-5 targets for four yards in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

Robinson did not have anything to show for his early opportunities in this one. He was unable to get loose on a deep target on the opening drive, and he dropped what would have been a third-down conversion on the second series. His only catch of the first half went for just four yards, and he was somehow worse in the second half. He was targeted just once in the third quarter – an errant end-zone target – and he was not heard from after that. It is possible he aggravated his groin injury in the second half, but the Bears never announced an injury. The Jets are a good matchup next week, but Robinson’s health and Mitchell Trubisky’s play are concerns moving forward.
Oct 21 - 5:32 PM

Tarik Cohen rushed six times for 14 yards and hauled in 8-of-12 targets for 69 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

Following a disappointing start to the season, Cohen has established himself as a big part of Chicago’s offense, and that continued in this one. Cohen finished the first half with just one fewer touch than Jordan Howard, although that total was boosted by two catches with less than 10 seconds left in the half, and dominated work after the break. He started strong in the second half, catching a six-yard touchdown on the opening drive, and he added six more catches to his total after halftime. He now has at least seven catches in each of his last three games. He will be a great PPR option and an RB3/FLEX in standard formats next week against the Jets.
Oct 21 - 5:32 PM

Trey Burton hauled in 9-of-11 targets for 126 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Patriots.

Burton was the only player Mitchell Trubisky could trust early in this game. He was the target on four of the quarterback’s eight first-half completions including a fourth-down conversion on a second-quarter touchdown drive. He kept it going after the break, catching five more passes for another 70 yards and a late touchdown. Although he has scored in four of the last five games, this was easily Burton’s best outing of the season, and he did it with Tarik Cohen the only other player making plays in the passing game. He will remain a back-end TE1 next week against the Jets.
Oct 21 - 5:31 PM

Mitchell Trubisky completed 26-of-50 attempts for 333 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Bears' Week 7 loss to the Patriots, adding 81 yards and a touchdown on six carries.

Trubisky was just 8-for-20 in the first half, but he also made important plays in big spots including a Hail Mary which fell just inches short on the final play. He converted two third downs early in the game on scrambles, and he did even better on the third drive, making the Patriots pay for a fumble on a spectacular "eight-yard" touchdown scramble in which he escaped several defenders in the backfield. He continued to hurt the Patriots with his legs early in the second half, scrambling for 39 yards down to the one-yard line on the opening touchdown drive. The scrambles eventually dried up, however, and Trubisky struggled to get anything going down the field. His risky throws caught up to him on an interception near the end of the third quarter, and he was picked again early in the fourth on an underthrown pass. He did find Trey Burton for a touchdown late and connected on the Hail Mary, but this was not a good showing. He will look to rebound next week against the Jets.
Oct 21 - 4:32 PM

Khalil Mack (ankle) is active for Week 7 against the Patriots.

This had been the expectation. Mack appeared to be bothered by the injury last week, but he can still be a disruptive force against a Patriots line without RT Marcus Cannon.
Oct 21 - 11:32 AM

Allen Robinson (groin) is active for Week 7 against the Patriots.

This was the expectation after Robinson got in a limited practice on Friday. He might not be 100 percent, but he is in a good spot in a game in which the Bears could be playing from behind. He remains a back-end WR2 despite the injury concern.
Oct 21 - 11:31 AM

Allen Robinson (groin) is expected to play against the Patriots in Week 7.

Robinson practiced Friday and was considered on track to play. He'll continue to start in 3-WR sets with Taylor Gabriel and slot wideout Anthony Miller. Robinson arguably has the toughest matchup (albeit a winnable one) among Chicago's wideouts as he'll likely draw shadow coverage from Stephen Gilmore. He remains a risky WR2 considering he tweaked his groin only four days ago.
Oct 21 - 2:01 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Khalil Mack (ankle) is expected to play Week 7 against the Patriots.

It is not a surprise considering Mack played through the same injury last week, but he was noticeably hobbled in that game. Even so, he should be able to find success against a Patriots line which will be without RT Marcus Cannon.
Oct 20 - 11:52 PM

Allen Robinson (groin) is questionable for Week 7 against the Patriots.

Robinson returned to practice on Friday, which puts him on track to suit up Sunday against New England. It's an attackable matchup for A-Rob, though he might not be at full strength. If that's the case and Robinson ends up being more of a decoy, it would open up work for Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller.
Oct 19 - 2:31 PM

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (ankle) is questionable for Week 7 against the Patriots.

Lead wideout Allen Robinson (groin) also drew the questionable tag, though both players resumed practicing on Friday. We're guessing Mack will play through his ankle injury, just as he did a week ago in Miami. Mack looked noticeably hobbled in that game and it wouldn't be a surprise if he had similar limitations against New England, which would come as great news for Tom Brady.
Oct 19 - 2:30 PM

Allen Robinson (groin) was downgraded to "DNP" on Thursday.

Robinson had been "limited" on Wednesday. The Chicago Tribune considers Robinson's status for Sunday's game against the Patriots "unknown." Robinson's absence would thrust Taylor Gabriel into a potential WR2 role while also creating more target opportunities for Trey Burton, Tarik Cohen and Anthony Miller.
