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.

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.

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.

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.

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. (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.

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.
