  Bears | Martellus Bennett scores two TDs    Tue Sep 23, 02:22 AM

He leads the team with 20 catches for 161 yards and four touchdowns after the first three weeks of the season. He is one touchdown shy of his career highs, set in 2012 and 2013. 'I'm a lot better player than I was last year,' Bennett said. 'Last year I wasn't that good. I was all right, but this summer I took a whole lot of time to work on my game.'

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery likely for MNF    Sun Sep 21, 11:06 AM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is expected to play Monday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Jeffery was clearly not 100% last week and still had three catches. Against the Jets woeful secondary, he's worth plugging in despite the risk of a setback in warmups or surprise inactive.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall expected to go    Sun Sep 21, 11:05 AM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) is expected to play Monday, Sept. 22.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall questionable    Sat Sep 20, 02:04 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Keep a careful eye on this but know that given the Monday might game time you'll be high and dry if he goes inactive. Few fantasy owners are going to risk benching Marshall after his three score game-time decision game in Week 2 on Sunday night against San Francisco.

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery listed as questionable    Sat Sep 20, 02:03 PM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Assume the Jets are in some church lighting candles in the hope the football gods hear them and both Jeffery and Marshall are out. That said if he's playing, as he did after being hurt last week, he should be good for some WR2 numbers against a poor Jets secondary. Keep in mind though that if he is inactive you won't know until Monday so if you don't have another Monday night option, you'll be in trouble. So be prepared.

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery a limited participant    Fri Sep 19, 05:06 PM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was limited in practice for the second straight day Friday, Sept. 19.

Footballguys view: Check back in tomorrow, but if Jeffery was able to play last week with much less practice participation, he should be a go against the woeful Jets secondary Monday night.

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery limited Thursday    Thu Sep 18, 05:53 PM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Footballguys view: Jeffery didn't look the same last week as he surprisingly played in Week 2. The team is wise to take it easy on him at practice this week.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall doesn't practice     Thu Sep 18, 05:52 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Footballguys view: Marshall (like Alshon Jeffery) surprisingly played in Week 2. We'll see if he can practice tomorrow before calling it safe(r) to start him this week. He's easily a top-10 fantasy receiver if he plays in Week 3 against a terrible Jets secondary.

  Bears | Two waived    Tue Sep 16, 06:17 PM

The Chicago Bears placed RB Shaun Draughn and WR Chris X. Williams on no-recall waivers Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: The move to get rid of Draughn is a bit surprising. He looked better than rookie Kadeem Carey in the preseason, but now he's without a team. Carey is now clearly the handcuff for Matt Forte.

  Bears | David Fales added to practice squad    Mon Sep 15, 06:26 PM

The Chicago Bears signed free-agent QB David Fales (Bears) to their practice squad Monday, Sept. 15.

Footballguys view: Fales has a really weak arm, but his elite anticipation makes him a player to monitor in super deep dynasty leagues. We're excited about Fales working under renowned QB guru, Bears head coach Marc Trestman.

  Bears | Charles Tillman officially goes to IR    Mon Sep 15, 05:43 PM

Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman (triceps) was officially placed on Reserve/Injured Monday, Sept. 15. He is out for the season.

Footballguys view: This may be the end of Tillman's time with the Bears. He suffered a triceps tear last year too, and he's playing on a one-year contract. Without Tillman on the field, we'll see a greater opportunity for Kelvin Haydben.

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery limps through game    Sun Sep 14, 11:45 PM

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) played in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers, and he was held to three receptions and 47 yards with no scores.

Footballguys view: Jeffery's numbers weren't horrible if you waited for him. He didn't look 100%, but didn't seem to suffer any setbacks. With an extra day of rest against the Jets on Monday night, he should go and look better than he did tonight.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall scores three TDs    Sun Sep 14, 11:35 PM

Updating a previous report, not only did Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers, he scored three touchdowns.

Footballguys view: Marshall wasn't a downfield threat, but he ruled the end zone. He rewarded everyone who waited for him, but it was totally rational to bench him if you didn't have a night game hedge. Obviously Marshall is back to being an easy start on Monday at the Jets.

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery active    Sun Sep 14, 07:06 PM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is active for the Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Jeffery seemed even more questionable than Marshall, so he is the riskier play of the two. Still, it is probably better to play him than a low confidence option like Stevie Johnson, Trent Richardson, or even Carlos Hyde.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall active    Sun Sep 14, 06:44 PM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) will be active for the Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Apparently Alshon Jeffery will also play. There is still risk of limited effectiveness or re-injury, but if you waited for either Bears receiver, looks like you can plug them in.

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery likely to sit out    Sun Sep 14, 09:15 AM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is likely to miss the game Sunday, Sept. 14, on Sunday Night Football. A source said they're 75 percent sure that Jeffery won't play in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Jeffery has never looked likely to play this week. He should be on your bench. Sitting is best for his season-long status as hamstrings are easy to aggravate and make worse when players come back too early.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall may not play    Sun Sep 14, 09:14 AM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) could wind up missing the game Sunday, Sept. 14, on Sunday Night Football. A source said they're 75 percent sure that Marshall won't play in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Alshon Jeffery is almost certainly out. Marshall has a better chance of playing but the Bears activated two wide receivers from the practice squad last night, so this is a bad situation. If you have to play Marshall, have another 49ers, Colts, or Eagles receiver (or back if you can flex Marshall) ready just in case. Jay Cutler is not a QB1 this week.
