Darnell Mooney
22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Impressed by his 4.38 40-yard dash time, the Bears traded up to draft Mooney in the fifth round of this year's draft. Due to his slight 176-pound frame, he projects as a slot receiver, but the team has Anthony Miller, their second-best receiver, mainly occupying that spot, and Allen Robinson also lines up frequently in the slot. It's difficult enough for a rookie selected that late in the NFL Draft to make an immediate impact, and the fact that Chicago signed Ted Ginn to a free-agent deal makes it even more unlikely that Mooney makes a major impact as a rookie. Still, not many players can run like Mooney, and if the Bears somehow get quality quarterback play from the tandem of Nick Foles and Mitchell Trubisky, there's a chance that Mooney can emerge as the season progresses. However, that's not a very probable scenario. Read Past Outlooks

Impressive debut

Mooney caught all three of his targets for 38 yards in Chicago's 27-23 victory over the Lions Sunday.
With Chicago trailing by multiple scores throughout the second half, Mooney saw regular work in three-receiver sets, and he ended the day as the team's third leading receiver. Based on this solid performance, he's a player fantasy managers may consider adding to their benches with the hopes of streaming him in games in which the Bears are likely to throw the ball often.
