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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jeffery should be healthy to go this Monday and is a borderline WR1 against that Jets secondary.
