  Bears | Chicago signing Mario Alford    Tue Sep 12, 02:21 PM

Free-agent WR Mario Alford (Browns) will be signed to the Chicago Bears' practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 12.

Footballguys view: A seventh-round pick (2015, Bengals) out of West Virginia, Alford has bounced around the league during his short time in the pros. At 5'8" 180 pounds, Alford is a speedy receiver who can also contribute on special teams. The Bears are thin at wide receiver, but Alford is only on the practice squad at this point.

  Browns | Mario Alford added to Browns roster    Sat Dec 17, 12:03 PM

Cleveland Browns practice squad WR Mario Alford was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: A seventh-round pick by the Bengals in 2015, Alford was known as a lightning-fast receiver in college at West Virginia. He can take the top off the defense in a hurry, and in dynasty leagues we will be monitoring Alford's progress as a pro. Some in the scouting community compared his skill set to that of Travis Benjamin (Chargers) last year.

  Bengals | Camp important for Mario Alford    Fri Jul 29, 04:26 PM

  Bengals | Depth at receiver for Bengals    Sun Jul 10, 02:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WRs Mario Alford, Jake Kumerow and Brandon Tate were named by director of player personnel Duke Tobin as receivers who can contribute behind WRs A.J. Green, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd.

Footballguys view: Let's not get too crazy here. Tate is a speedy returner, but that's about it as he's not impressive as a receiver. Alford is a smaller (5'8" 180 pounds) receiver/returner who the Bengals picked up out of West Virginia in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL draft. Kumerow was a training camp stud last year as an undrafted rookie out of Wisconsin-Whitewater. The 6'5" 205 pound WR made a good impression and spent his rookie season learning on the Bengals practice squad. In deep dynasty, he's a player we like and the best one worth watching here for fantasy owners.
