Pernell McPhee finishes with three tackles

Linebacker Pernell McPhee finished Thursday's game against the Green Bay Packers with three tackles, all solo, and a sack.

Fantasy Impact

Even though McPhee didn't have many tackle opportunities, he was able to contribute with a sack on Aaron Rodgers. McPhee is worth a roster spot in deep IDP leagues as he is on the field a ton for the Bears defense.

Bears leave OLB Darnell McPhee on PUP list

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Bears are keeping OLB Darnell McPhee on the PUP list to start the season.

Fantasy Impact

The Bears defense could be good, if they were ever healthy at the same time. When on the field, McPhee has been one of the better linebackers in the game, particularly when it comes to pass rushing. The PUP designation means that he cannot play in the first six games of the season. He was apparently close to returning, so he should be good to go once his six games is up. The Bears are going to struggle if they can't get pressure on Matt Ryan in Week 1.

Pernell McPhee undergoes knee surgery

According to Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson, Head Coach John Fox stated linebacker Pernell McPhee underwent arthroscopic right knee surgery, still no timetable for return. Fox also said it was more of a "clean up" procedure.

Fantasy Impact

McPhee has been sidelined since middle of 2016 season due to knee injuries. His future outlook does not look great as he can't seem to fight off these injuries. Take caution or look elsewhere if drafting in IDP leagues.

Pernell McPhee begins training camp on PUP list

Linebacker Pernell McPhee (knee) will begin trading camp in the PUP list.

Fantasy Impact

When McPhee played in 2016, he was limited most of the time. He is a solid contributor when healthy, but he has a hard time staying on the field. He is a risky option for IDP leagues due to health history.

Pernell McPhee played 19 snaps on Thursday

Coming off the PUP list, Pernell McPhee was given 19 snaps in his first game back. He did not make the stat sheet and looked rusty, but his knee looked to hold up.

Fantasy Impact

McPhee should be added to your watch list. He is not worth and add in IDP leagues until he starts seeing more opportunity. Once he is a full go, McPhee is worth an add in deep IDP leagues. Like Willie Young, he plays more of a defensive end role as a linebacker, which means less consistency.
