With Jeffrey having missed so much time last season, it is tough to remember that he is still young enough that we probably haven't seen the best of him. If he can add to his 1,400 yard, 89 reception season from a few years back, Jeffrey would be in the same category as DeAndre Hopkins, which would be tremendous value out of your third round pick.

Alshon Jeffery did not have his best game on Saturday, he finished with only two catches on six targets for 18 yards. He dropped a few passes that hit him in the hands, ones he probably should have caught.

Fantasy Impact: The Bears are going to lean heavily on Jeffrey this year, so hopefully he got the struggles out of the way. As long as he stays healthy, consider Jeffery a WR2 with WR1 upside due to amount of target as he will receive.

Jeffery, along with Dez Bryant, were the two biggest disappointments of last season's wide receiver crop, but when Jeffery was actually healthy, he was great. He played in six games in which he saw nine or more targets, and in the other three games, he saw six or less. In the nine-plus-target games, he averaged 7.33 receptions for 111 yards and .33 touchdowns. Most No. 1 receivers of his caliber see an average of nine or more targets, so this isn't just cherry picking his good games. But can Jeffery stay healthy? If I knew that, I'd probably know enough to be swimming in my Scrooge McDuck vault, but I do know that players who are considered injury-prone, usually lose that label at some point, and I'm not going to shy away from a top player due to past injuries

Alshon Jeffery has only played all 16 games in 2 of his 4 seasons in the NFL, so he now carries an injury risk tag. He is still the number 1 receiver in Chicago and Jay Cutler's go to receiver. He is susceptible to soft-tissue injuries, which may provide a lot of headaches for fantasy owners this season.

There are not a lot of WR's who see 30% plus of their teams market share in targets. Alshon does.

Fragility the only thing standing in his way of the elite tier.

It’s not easy, coverin’ Green (AP)Wide receivers have crashed the Fantasy Football draft party with a vengeance in recent seasons — they now run the room for the first few rounds. Ten of the Top 18 picks in current Yahoo ADP are wide receivers, and with that in mind, we need to spend extra time considering them — and extra time examining where we do and don’t agree. T...

If he can play a full season, he's got Round 1 upside as he'll likely see a huge target load - has 100 catch, 1,500 yards, 12 TDs upside as he pushes towards '17 free agency

Jeffery had 54 receptions for 807 yards and four touchdowns in just nine games, the big problem with him has been health. If he plays 16 games, he is a WR1 candidate, but I doubt his ability to play a full season.
