Velus Jones Jr. catches pass in Week 14

Velus Jones Jr. hauled in his lone target for 11 yards in the Bears' 28-13 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact

Jones Jr. continues to see little involvement in the Chicago passing attack, receiving less than three targets for his seventh consecutive game for the Bears. The speedy pass-catcher will need a more prominent role in the passing game, with a difficult matchup against the Cleveland Browns in Week 15 ahead.

Velus Jones Jr. quiet in Week 6 loss

Velus Jones Jr. caught his lone target for five yards while also rushing twice for 15 yards in the Bears' 19-13 Week 6 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Jones Jr. has offered minimal output to begin the season, failing to record a catch in four of five games to begin the season for the Bears. The 26-year-old has yet to translate his game-changing speed into production for fantasy managers and will continue to be left out of lineups in all formats until further notice.

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.
