Johnny Knox: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Knox (back) was released by Chicago on Tuesday, Sirius Radio's Adam Caplan reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Knox was the top receiver for Chicago not long ago, but a vertebrae injury in 2011 potentially left some long-term damage on Knox's medical evaluation. It's not clear whether Knox is in the sort of shape necessary to help another team, but when healthy there's no doubt he's a major big-play threat and a viable kick returner. Knox caught 51 passes for 960 yards and five touchdowns in 2010.
Knox (back) will stay on the PUP list for the remainder of the season, the Bears' official Twitter page reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Johnny Knox.

2012

After a horrific back injury last season, Knox is yet to step on a practice field this offseason. The receiver remains confident he can return sooner rather than later, but his weak frame and lack of conditioning suggest otherwise. Knox is a strong candidate for the PUP list to start the year, and frankly it would be a surprise if he saw the field at all in 2012.

2011

Despite not living up to the fantasy preseason hype, Knox actually had a pretty good second year. The Bears' primary deep threat, Knox averaged 18.8 YPC and 9.6 YPT. He caught 17 passes of 20 yards or more and four of 40-plus. At 6-0, 185, Knox is slight by NFL standards, and he's not going to see much work from in close (13 targets). But this is a player who ran a 4.26 40 at the NFL Combine, plays in an offense with big-armed Jay Cutler at quarterback and offensive guru Mike Martz as his coordinator and is heading into his third year. He'll need to become a more complete receiver to take the next step, but there's some upside here.

2010

Like Devin Aromashodu, Devin Hester and Earl Bennett, Knox is in the mix for targets in the Mike Martz/Jay Cutler show. Knox is the fastest of the four wideouts, running a blazing 4.26 40 at the 2009 NFL combine. At 6-0, 180, heís not very stout, but he has good hands and runs good routes. Heís not much of a red-zone threat, and despite his home run speed, Knox ran mostly shorter routes last year. Still, given Cutlerís big arm and Martzís aggressive play calling, thereís plenty of upside here if the team turns Knox loose down the field. At press time, Martz named Knox one of his preliminary starters along with Hester, though a lot can change over the summer, and the Bears will likely run plenty of three and four receiver sets.

2009

Knox impressed coaches at this season's OTAs and will be given a chance to become an impact player in the Bears' wide receiver corps. He's still likely to enter the season as a depth guy, but nothing is set in stone. He's very unlikely to have much fantasy value.
