Velus Jones Jr. officially active for Week 2

Velus Jones Jr. is officially active for the Bears in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact

Jones was a healthy scratch in Week 1 and didn't play in the team's loss to the Packers, but he will be active for Week 2 and should get some time on the field. He hasn't shown any real flashes of stardom in his short career so far, so he's not worth rostering in any league formats for the time being.

Velus Jones Jr. officially inactive for Week 1

Bears WR Velus Jones Jr. is officially inactive for the team’s Week 1 matchup with Green Bay.

Fantasy Impact

Jones is a healthy scratch and will have to wait at least one more week to make his 2023 season debut. Fantasy managers can leave Jones off their radar.

Velus Jones Jr. tallied one reception in preseason win

Velus Jones Jr. caught his lone target for six yards in a win over the Titans Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Jones tallied 107 yards and one touchdown on seven receptions in 12 games last season. The 26-year-old is likely the odd man out when it comes to seeing consistent targets in 2023. With the Bears offseason additions, fantasy managers can leave Jones off of their radars.

Velus Jones Jr. leads team in receiving yards in Week 16

Velus Jones Jr. hauled in two of four targets for 52 receiving yards in the Bears' 35-13 Week 16 loss to the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Jones Jr. had a mostly forgettable day for an inept Bears passing offense, doing most of his damage on a third quarter 44-yard reception. The rookie wideout has been used sporadically all season in the Bears passing attack and will be difficult to trust in a Week 17 matchup against the Detroit Lions.

Velus Jones Jr. officially inactive versus Miami

Velus Jones Jr. is a healthy scratch and will not suit up against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

The recent addition of Chase Claypool has apparently forced Jones Jr. into healthy scratch territory immediately. It is a troubling development that the 25-year-old rookie cannot find himself on the field in one of the NFL's weakest skill corps. He can be safely dropped in all but the deepest of fantasy dynasty leagues.
