2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
At long last, the Bears decided to revitalize their wide receiver depth chart in the offseason and Jeffery was part of the equation, with Chicago grabbing him in the second round of this year’s draft. Maturity issues, poor quarterback play and too much time at the buffet caused Jeffery’s draft stock to fall but he figures to have a chance to open the season in the Bears starting lineup provided he puts in the time during the preseason. At 6’3” and 216 pounds, he is a big receiver who will likely be used on short and intermediate routes but he also has enough speed to be an occasional deep threat. Unfortunately, while Jeffery clearly has more upside than Devin Hester and Earl Bennett, he will likely split the scraps that Brandon Marshall leaves behind with those two players during his rookie season. If the Bears were a high flying offense, Jeffery might be worth taking a flier on but that clearly won’t be the case with new offensive coordinator Mike Tice running the show. Consider Jeffery waiver wire material in 2012 and a solid prospect in dynasty formats.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Alshon Jeffrey "day-to-day" with calf strain     -- Tue Aug 25 9:30 am --

Bears WR status unclear for Saturday preseason game
Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has been dealing with a strained calf muscle for two weeks. On Monday, head coach John Fox was unable to provide a meaningful update on the fourth-year pass-catcher's injury status, adding that Jeffery is still listed as "day to day," according to reporters. (Fox Sports)

FF Today's Take: The Bears receiving corps is in rough shape. With both Jeffery and Kevin White out of the lineup, the Bears have experimented with their remaining depth at the wide receiver position, and former seventh-round selection Marquess Wilson is getting an extended look. But even Wilson missed practice on Monday with a hamstring injury. Right now, journeyman WR Eddie Royal is the only trustworthy receiver who's healthy, and could make an interesting early-season play in DFS and season-long leagues.
Injury Alshon Jeffery out of walking boot     -- Mon Aug 17 3:40 pm --

Suffered calf injury last week, likely to miss second preseason game

FF Today's Take: Jeffery's status for Week 1 doesn't appear to be in doubt and the Bears are likely just taking it slow with their top wideout. With Brandon Marshall now in New York, Chicago will rely heavily on Jeffery all over the field, making him a very good bet to finish among the top 10 fantasy receivers in all scoring formats.
Injury Bears' rookie wideout out with stress fracture     -- Sat Aug 15 1:00 pm --

Kevin White to miss at least six games
As it turns out, Chicago Bears rookie Kevin White won’t be ready for the regular season as the team had previously hoped. In fact, White may not see the field in 2015 whatsoever. White has a stress fracture in his left shin and that a setback in White’s recuperation from that injury will now force the receiver into surgery. Whether White will rehabilitate from that surgery fast enough to play late in 2015 remains to be seen. (Chicago Tribune)

FF Today's Take: That thud you hear is the sound of White's fantasy value in redraft leagues. White will be placed on the PUP list once the season begins, meaning he will miss at least the first six games of the season. Alshon Jeffery (calf), Eddie Royal and TE Martellus Bennett will be the top three receiving options for Jay Cutler. WR Marquess Wilson will also be in the mix for targets.
Injury Jeffery misses pre-season opener with calf injury     -- Thu Aug 13 11:00 pm --

Bears' WR wearing a walking boot and using crutches
Receiver Alshon Jeffery did not play in Thursday night's exhibition opener because he strained a calf muscle at practice in Bourbonnais earlier in the week. Coach John Fox said Jeffery is day to day, but he did not know when Jeffery will return to practice. Jeffery is wearing a walking boot and using crutches. (Chicago Tribune)

FF Today's Take: Not sure why a walking boot is needed for a calf muscle injury, but then again I'm not a doctor. John Fox likes to give as little information as possible when it comes to injuries and that could be the case here. Let's hope its just a strain and not something more serious. Eddie Royal and Marquess Wilson got the start in Jeffery's absence.
