2019 Fantasy Outlook
Since Chicago has a number of solid receivers, including starting tight end Trey Burton, Shaheen will have precious few opportunities to contribute to the passing attack. In two years with the Bears to date, he's been targeted 20 times in 19 games, compiling an 85 percent catch rate and 8.8 yards per target. Those are exceptional numbers for any player, but his situation is such that he'll find it difficult to be a consistent option in the Bears offense. Read Past Outlooks

Emphasis on health in 2019
TEChicago Bears
June 24, 2019
Shaheen has focused on maintaining his health this offseason, Hub Arkush of the Daily Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
After missing three games as a rookie, Shaheen sat out 10 additional contests last year due to an ankle injury. While he's enjoying a healthy offseason, he'll try to maintain his standing as the Bears' second-string tight end. A strong preseason could help him earn playing time as a receiving option, especially if starter Trey Burton's recovery from sports hernia surgery lingers. For now, though, it's unlikely that Shaheen will be much of a fantasy factor to start the season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
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.
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.
