The Bears announced on Wednesday that Jay Cutler will not be starting Sunday against the Lions. Instead, Jimmy Clausen will get the nod.

Fantasy Impact: With Jimmy Clausen starting over Jay Cutler, two things could happen. One, Clausen plays better in Marc Trestman's offense and Alshon Jeffery keeps up his Pro Bowl performace. Two, Clausen looks worse than Cutler and Jeffery will have less fantasy value. This is a critical championship week in most fantasy leagues. Continue to play Jeffery as a WR1 as he will likely be a security blanket for Clausen.

With Brandon Marshall out for the season, Alshon Jeffery is now Jay Cutler's number one target. Jeffery was targeted a team high, nine times. He had four receptions for 78 yards and one touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Alshon Jeffery proved last night that even with a poor performance by the Bears offense, he will still be a WR1 every week. Jeffery has over 1,000 yards receiving and nine touchdowns. Look for him to hit the double-digit mark in touchdowns before the season is over. If you are lucky enough to still be in the playoffs and Jeffery is on your roster, start him like usual.

Alshon Jeffery was limited in practice all week with a nagging hamstring injury. However, it does not look like that hamstring is bothering the young receiver too much. Jeffery finished Thursday's game with six receptions for 95 yards and one touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: With Brandon Marshall likely done for the season, Alshon Jeffery will likely see even more targets over the last three weeks. Jeffery was already a must-start WR1, but now his value is even higher going forward. Over the last four weeks, Jeffery has 29 receptions, 323 yards, and five touchdowns. Jeffery is a must start with another Pro Bowl type season in the works.

Fantasy Impact: This is good news for the Bears as Alshon Jeffery has been their most productive WR as of late. Jeffery has 228 yards and four touchdowns over the last three games. Feel free to play Jeffery this week against a suspect Cowboys defense.

Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has been listed as questionable on Chicago's injury report due to a hamstring issue. Jeffery was limited in practice Monday and Wednesday, but did miss practice all together on Tuesday. (Source: Jeff Dickerson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jeffery has been the Bears best receiver in recent weeks, so this would be a big blow to a struggling offense if he can not play. With it being the early Thursday game, fantasy owners have plenty of time to find replacements if Jeffery sits. Josh Morgan would make a marginal speculative play if Jeffery is a no go. Check back on his status tomorrow night.

Alshon Jeffery was limited in practice on Monday with a hamstring injury. Jeffery has been dealing with this nagging hamstring injury most of the season.

Fantasy Impact: With the Bears playing again on Thursday, limiting Jeffery in practice was probably a strategical move to keep him fresh. Jeffery has been dealing with this hamstring injury since Week 3. He has not shown any signs of slowing down and has looked better as the season has progressed. With Brandon Marshall struggling as of late, Jeffery has proven to be the better fantasy option. Continue to play Jeffery as a WR1 in Week 14 against the Cowboys.

By Rob Schwarz, Jr., Bears Correspondent, Fri, Nov 28th 11:40am EST

Alshon Jeffery is establishing himself as the Bears number one receiver. He scored another two touchdowns on Thursday while hauling in nine receptions for 71 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Alshon Jeffery is still a WR1 in a Bears offense that has under-performed this season. Jeffery caught nine passes on thirteen targets. He finished with two touchdowns and 71 yards. Alshon Jeffery should be in your lineup every week.

By Rob Schwarz, Jr., Bears Correspondent, Mon, Nov 24th 11:54am EST

Alshon Jeffery scored the only passing/receiving touchdown for the Bears on Sunday. Jeffery finished with two catches for 22 yards and one touchdown against the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact: The Bears did not look fluid on Sunday in their win against Tampa Bay. Jeffery saved his fantasy owners a little with a short touchdown catch in the 3rd quarter. The Bears face a tough Detroit defense on Thanksgiving. Look for Jeffery to have more than three targets on Thursday. Jeffery still remains an every week starter.

Fantasy Impact: Wednesday was a day of rest for Alshon Jeffery more than it was anything else. His status for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay was never in much danger. Look to start Jeffery as a WR1 against one of the worst secondaries in the NFL.

By Rob Schwarz, Jr., Bears Correspondent, Thu, Nov 20th 10:20am EST

Alshon Jeffery did not practice on Wednesday. Jeffery has not been on the injury list since the third week of the season. Jeffery played a major role in the win last week against the Vikings as he hauled in 11 receptions for 135 yards and one touchdown. With the shortened week of rest following the Tampa Bay game on Sunday, it is no surprise the Bears may try to manage practice reps accordingly. (Source: NBCSports)

Fantasy Impact: Alshon Jeffery had an elite performance against the Vikings with 11 catches, 135 yards, and one touchdown. It sounds like the Bears may be giving Jeffery some rest and looking forward to the game against their division rivals on Thanksgiving. Keep an eye on if Jeffery practices Thursday or Friday. If Jeffery plays on Sunday he should be in your starting lineup. He will be a WR1 against a Tampa secondary who currently ranks 30th in the NFL.

Fantasy Impact: Alshon Jeffery rewarded those that have faithfully started him every week with a touchdown and a basket full of receptions on Sunday. Alshon was able to use his height to snag almost everything thrown his way against a smaller Minnesota secondary. The 6 foot 3 inch wideout's stellar performance should rekindle the fantasy football faith and elevate Jeffrey back into "must start" status.

Alshon Jeffery had 6 catches for 63 yards in the Week 10 drubbing at the hands of the Green Bay Packers. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Alshon is still collecting the receptions despite the offensive meltdown in Chicago. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, however, the yardage has diminished and he only has three touchdowns this season. With the current turmoil on this Chicago Bear team Alshon seems to be a Flex or low end WR2 for your fantasy football squad. However, if fellow wideout Brandon Marshall misses any time with his recent injury, bump Jeffery up on your weekly fantasy wide receiver rankings.

Alshon Jeffery had five receptions for 59 yards Sunday versus the Patriots including a 10 yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter. (Source: ChicagoBears.com)

Fantasy Impact: Alshon's fourth quarter touchdown saved his fantasy performance. Albeit was during garbage time of a shellacking at the hands of the Patriots. Even with a Chicago Bear team on the edge of a meltdown, Jeffery still seems to put up low end WR2 numbers. However, you will need to look elsewhere next week as the Bears have a much needed BYE in week 9.

Jeffery caught passes for 5 and 4 yards on back-to-back plays to start the opening drive of the afternoon. He was held without a grab the rest of the way. (Source: CBSSports.com - Igor Mello)

Fantasy Impact: Alshon Jeffery put up an abysmal 2 catches for 9 yards versus the Dolphins on Sunday. However, Jeffery's stat line is more indicative of how the Chicago Bears played as a team rather than his individual performance. Consider Alshon Jeffery a low end WR2 with upside at New England next week.

After a big first half from Brandon Marshall, fellow Bears starting wideout Alshon Jeffery made a major impact in the second half Sunday’s game at Atlanta. (Source: NBCSports.com)

Fantasy Impact: The Bears twin towers both had over a 100 yards receiving against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday with Alshon Jeffery catching 5 passes for 136 yards. The most impressive catch of the day was Alshon hauling in a 74 yard bomb that could have been a touchdown if not for a slight stumble after the catch. Jeffery also had a touchdown negated in the fourth quarter because he stepped out of bounds. The Bears offense has plenty of weapons. Look for Alshon Jeffery to remain a solid piece of Chicago's offensive arsenal next week versus Miami. Jeffery is a dependable WR1 starter for fantasy teams in all formats.

The Bears could not hold off the Panthers on Sunday. The game started with a horrific punt return, but the Bears seemed to dominate the first half. Alshon Jefferey was a part of that with two receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown. In the second half, Jeffery was one of a few players not to sputter as he posted another four receptions for 41 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Alshon Jeffery continues to prove why he is a WR1 in the NFL. Jeffery made the most of his opportunities as he hauled in six of his seven targets, including a fantastic one-handed catch. Jeffery recorded a touchdown, and he was three yards shy of his second 100-yard game of the season. Alshon Jeffery is a must start option every week.

Alshon Jeffery and the Bears could not hold off the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. The Bears started the game allowing a horrific punt return, but seemed to dominate the first half. Alshon Jeffery was a part of that with two receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown. In the second half Jeffery was one of the only Bears players not to sputter. He added four receptions for another 41 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Alshon Jeffery continues his case as a WR1; even when the Bears lose. He posted six receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown. Jeffery made every opportunity count as he hauled in six of his seven targets; one of those catches was one handed! Continue to play Jeffery every week going forward.

By Rob Schwarz, Jr., Bears Correspondent, Mon, Sep 29th 11:18pm EDT

Alshon Jeffery was targeted seven times, but could only haul in four receptions for 39 yards. Jeffery also had 12 yards rushing. One of his catches was a touchdown, but he also had a drop in the end zone.

Fantasy Impact: Jeffery owners have two things to be happy about. He had another seven targets and he had another touchdown catch. The bad news is that one of those targets was a high pass in the end zone that bounced off Jeffery's hands. No matter the case, Jeffery remains a WR1 with this Bears offense. Continue to play him every week.

By Rob Schwarz, Jr., Bears Correspondent, Tue, Sep 23rd 5:34pm EDT

Alshon Jeffery shined in the Monday night game against the Jets. He had some important catches and also drew a long pass interference call that lead to a Bears' touchdown. Jeffery finished with 8 receptions for 105 receiving yards. He also added 13 yards rushing on two attempts.

Fantasy Impact: Alshon Jeffery was the most productive wideout for the Bears last night. With Marshall aggravating his ankle injury, Jeffery had to step up. Although Jeffery did not have a touchdown reception, he rewarded PPR leagues with 8 catches. He tallied 105 receiving yards and even added 13 yards rushing. It looks as though his hamstring injury is behind him. Jeffery should continue to be implanted into your lineups every week as a WR1. His fantasy value will increase even more if Marshall cannot play against the Packers in Week 4.

By Rob Schwarz, Jr., Bears Correspondent, Sat, Sep 20th 1:15pm EDT

Alshon Jeffery was limited in practice on both Thursday and Friday. He is expected to start on Monday night against the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Jeffery has had another week to heal. He will be closer to 100% this week than he was in Week 2. Expect Jeffery to start and put up good numbers against a weak Jets' secondary. Plan on using Jeffery as a low-end WR1 in Week 3.

By Rob Schwarz, Jr., Bears Correspondent, Mon, Sep 15th 10:29am EDT

Despite a hamstring injury, Alshon Jeffery played in last nights win against the 49ers. Jeffery was not able to run his routes at top speed, but he did haul in three receptions for 47 yards. He was also the target on a couple passes that resulted in either defensive holding or illegal contact downfield. Two of those penalties kept drives alive.

Fantasy Impact: If anyone played Jeffery this week, he at least did not net a goose egg. Jeffery struggled to reach that second gear and separate downfield. However, he was still targeted six times and made three receptions for 47 yards. If not for two of his targets resulting in defensive penalties, the Bears might not have won that game. The hope is that his hamstring will heal some more this week, and you can start him as a low end WR1 in the Monday night game against the Jets.

Still nursing a hamstring injury suffered in Week 1, Alshon Jeffery is not likely to play against the Niners Sunday night. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With the late Sunday night game and the uncertainty with Jeffery, it is best to play it safe and sit Alshon tonight. Since Brandon Marshall is also a game time decision tonight, Santonio Holmes makes for a good pickup to replace either of the Bears WRs. Jarrett Boykin, Dwayne Bowe, Anquan Boldin or Jordan Matthews also make for good plug and play options, since they all play in late games.

The Bears received some good news today. Wideout, Alshon Jeffery was a limited participant in practice today. He missed the first two days of practice while nursing a hamstring injury. Jeffery is officially listed as questionable for Sunday nights game against the 49ers, but he is not sure if he will be ready to play. "We'll see. A game and practice is different," he said. (Source: NBC Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Jeffery is a top tier WR1 when healthy. I personally believe both Jeffery and Marshall will play on Sunday, but they might not be as effective. With Jeffery listed as questionable, it seems like he will be a game time decision this week. To make matters worse, he plays the night game. If you have a viable option to sub in for Jeffery this week, use him. If you do not have depth on your bench, look at free agents like Donnie Avery, Malcolm Floyd, Brian Quick, or even Santonio Holmes as a one week fill-in.

Alshon Jeffery missed practice on Wednesday with a hamstring injury. The Bears said they were being cautious, but they have yet to give the severity of Jeffery's injury. If he cannot suit up on Sunday, the Bears will be missing one half of arguably the best WR tandem in the NFL. (Source: Bleacher Report)

Fantasy Impact: Keep a keen eye on injury updates regarding Alshon Jeffery tomorrow and Friday. It scares me that the Bears have yet to report anything specific; seeing he did not return to the game last week. If Jeffery is healthy he will be a must start. If not, look to your waiver wire for guys like Malcolm Floyd or Markus Wheaton for help. If you want to stick with a Bears receiver look for Santonio Holmes to be the next best WR target possibly available in free agency.

Alshon Jeffery and the Bears' offense looked great early against the Bills. Jeffery came on strong and tallied 4 receptions for 62 yards in the first half. He had another catch in the third quarter to give him a total of 5 receptions for 71 yards. Unfortunately, Jeffery exited the game early in the third quarter with a hamstring injury. He was listed as probable to return, but never saw the field again.

Fantasy Impact: Jeffery was targeted early and often. He caught 5 of 6 targets for 71 yards. The Bears' offense put up over 300 yards in their passing game. Cutler spread the ball around well, and Jeffery was obviously a major target. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Jeffery went out in the third quarter with a hamstring injury. Right now everyone is saying they kept him out of the game for precautionary reasons. Only time will tell. Keep a close eye on Jeffery's status this week. If he is ruled healthy for the San Fransisco game then he is a low-end WR1 against a 49ers defense who intercepted Tony Romo three times.

By Dale Redman, Bears Correspondent, Sat, Aug 23rd 12:36am EDT

Pulling in 4 catches for 45 yards on 8 targets, Jefferey had a pretty good game against arguably the top defense in the NFL. Jeffery also looked to have pulled in a 40+ yard catch early in the first quarter, but had it broken up at the last second by CB Byron Maxwell.

Fantasy Impact: As Chicago's starters only played in the first half, Alshon put up decent numbers against a tough secondary. Also, it was encouraging to see Jeffery with the edge in targets over Brandon Marshall in this game (8 to 7). Currently Alshon is the 9th WR off the board and 25th player overall. Expect the third year WR to easily secure himself as a WR1 in fantasy with top 12 receiving numbers.

Fantasy Football Maniax | Dec 20th
Jeffery needs QB Jay Cutler to play better, otherwise his fantasy value is going to be tied to how many garbage numbers he can put up in the 4th quarter. Jeffery is still a low WR1 to high WR2 though, he has too much talent to be ranked lower.
