Alshon Jeffery: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Jeffery (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jeffery was given a doubtful designation heading into the contest after failing to practice all week, so his lack of availability certainly isn't startling. It will mark his sixth absence of the season. With the Bears eliminated from playoff contention, there's little incentive for Jeffery to play at less than full health. In Jeffery's absence, Josh Bellamy is expected to start, but tight end Zach Miller and slot man Eddie Royal should be the primary beneficiaries in the passing game.

Jeffery (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jeffery sat out practice all week after injuring his hamstring late in last week's game, and it's almost certain that he will be unable to go in Week 16. Marc Mariani and Josh Bellamy are in line for added snaps opposite Eddie Royal (knee) as long as Jeffery is sidelined as expected.
Jeffery (hamstring) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

A frequent resident on the injury report this season, Jeffery is again dealing with a hamstring issue stemming from Sunday's defeat at Minnesota. Previously, he missed four early-season tilts due to an injury to the same region, but the severity of the current concern is unknown. If his practice participation in the coming days doesn't shed light on his Week 16 availability, Friday's injury report will hold some sway over head coach John Fox's eventual decision.
Jeffery caught one of five targets for a 10-yard TD in Sunday's 38-17 loss to the Vikings.

Jeffery (calf/illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings, ESPN Chicago's Jeff Dickerson reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After missing Thursday's practice entirely, Jeffery was available in a minimal capacity Friday, but with the worst of the illness behind him and his calf injury not a huge concern at this juncture, it looks like quarterback Jay Cutler will have his top receiver available. He looks like a strong option in both season-long and DFS formats for Week 15 on the heels of a six-catch, 107-yard, one-touchdown performance last week against Washington.
Jeffery (calf/illness) is expected to play Sunday at Minnesota, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jeffery was limited in practice to kick off the week with a calf concern, yet he missed Thursday's session entirely due to an illness. Present in a limited capacity again Friday, he'll seek out his fifth 100-yard effort of the season against a Vikings defense that has conceded 13.3 YPC and seven receiving touchdowns to wideouts over the past four games.
Jeffery (calf/illness) returned to practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, ESPN's Jeff Dickerson reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jeffery seemingly missed Thursday's practice because of the illness, as opposed to the calf issue that limited him at Wednesday's session. Owners will still want to check on his status before Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff, but it seems likely that Jeffery will be able to suit up, as he's effectively played through a slew of lower-body concerns this season.
Jeffery (calf) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice due to an illness, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After a calf concern limited his practice reps Wednesday, Jeffery experienced a decrease in work as a result of the illness. Although the absence could extend into Friday's practice as well, the calf will likely hold more sway over his Week 15 potential, which may be clarified by week's end.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

2014

Year 2 is when receivers typically break out, and Jeffery’s 2013 was a case in point. After a quiet rookie season – 24 catches in 10 games – and despite playing opposite target-hog Brandon Marshall, Jeffery emerged as one of the league’s elite downfield weapons, averaging 9.5 YPT (6th) and 16.0 YPC (7th), catching six passes for 40 or more yards and 19 passes of 20-plus. At 6-3, 216 and with 4.48 speed Jeffery is another of the league’s prototype size/speed specimens, and he employed his physique and large hands to dramatic effect at times, out-leaping smaller defenders and catching jump-balls in traffic. Jeffery also saw his share of red-zone and goal-line work, with 19 targets in the former and 11 in the latter. While he did much of his damage with since departed Josh McCown under center, he had 200-yard and 100-yard performances with Jay Cutler and finished the season with three straight games of 70-plus yards after Cutler returned from an ankle injury. Moreover, Bears coach and offensive guru Marc Trestman should ensure there’s plenty to go around even with Marshall taking his usual cut.

2013

Hand and knee injuries held Jeffery to just 10 games as a rookie, but the limited work he did was promising – he averaged a passable 7.6 YPT and 15.3 YPC on his 48 targets. At 6-3, 215, Jeffery has ideal size for red-zone work, good ball skills, reliable hands and above-average athletic ability. He's not especially fast, but he doesn't need a lot of separation to make plays over smaller defenders. Jeffery should get a chance to start this season – new head coach Marc Trestman said as much – and in any event see a significant uptick in targets. Keep in mind, however, Jay Cutler has locked in on target-hog Brandon Marshall going back to their days in Denver together, and third wideout Earl Bennett is also a Cutler favorite from Vanderbilt.

2012

At 6-3, 216, the 45th overall pick in this year’s draft could be involved in the Bears offense right away. Chicago GM Phil Emery raved about Jeffery’s size, hands and toughness, and he specifically cited his red-zone ability given his ball skills and ability to make plays in traffic. Jeffery’s not particularly fast, and the Bears envision him operating out of the slot. That means he’d have to beat out the more polished Earl Bennett, a Jay Cutler favorite dating back to their days at Vanderbilt. It could happen eventually, but our bet is on Bennett in the near term. That said, if Jeffery were to win the job, his red-zone skills give him added upside.
