2018 Fantasy Outlook
Efficiency was the name of Shaheen's rookie year – he caught 86 percent of his targets and turned 12 catches into three touchdowns. Not bad, especially when you consider all the offensive chaos around him. New coach Matt Nagy was complimentary of Shaheen all spring; then again, the Bears threw a huge contract at free agent Trey Burton, who Nagy compared to Travis Kelce. Shaheen's 2018 fantasy value will probably depend on how quickly Burton can get up to speed; and if Burton is healthy all year, Shaheen's interesting, theoretical upside might have to stay on fantasy waiver wires.

Helps lead team to win
TEChicago Bears
December 16, 2018
Shaheen caught two passes for 39 yards in the Bears' 24-17 victory over the Packers.
ANALYSIS
With Chicago playing this one conservatively, Shaheen was just one of two Bears to catch a pass longer than 20 yards, and he was also second on the team in receiving yards. With just four targets over his last three games, he'll be a touchdown-dependent fantasy option down the stretch.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Although the Bears drafted Shaheen with their second-round pick in the 2017 draft, he'll face a steep challenge as he looks to make the leap to the NFL from his collegiate experience at the Division II level. He's a physical marvel at 6-6, 278 pounds, and despite his size, he was drafted as a receiving tight end after recording 57 passes for 867 yards and 16 touchdowns last year. One of the reasons the team coveted him was an ability to dominate 50-50 balls while also being able to run over defenders. With Zach Miller currently slated to be the primary receiving tight end and Dion Sims also ahead of him on the depth chart, Shaheen should be provided time to grow into his role, which makes sense as he plays a position that many high-level college athletes struggle to master early in their careers. He'll be more valuable this year as a speculative pick in dynasty leagues than he'll be in redraft leagues.
