Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs MIN (10 / 5 / 94 / 0 rec)
Inman held his own against Xavier Rhodes, even drawing two penalties from the elite corner. He was responsible for the only first down on offense of the first half for the Bears, and in the second half, he had three downfield receptions to start drives that ended in Minnesota territory. He has made a strong case to be a top three receiver for the Bears if they decide to bring him back in free agency after being reasonably productive despite being brought in mid-season.
2017 Week 14 vs CIN (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
After averaging five targets a game in his first four games as a Chicago Bear, Dontrelle Inman didn't see a single target in Sunday's 33-7 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Somewhat shocking, yes. Mitchell Trubisky attempted 32 passes on the day, and yet none of them went to Inman. While this is a bad thing for Inman fantasy owners, it might actually be a sign of what the Bears offense can look like with a somewhat respectable No. 1 option. Not that Inman is a No. 1; obviously he isn't. But his mere presence on the field, in four games of film leading up to Sunday against the Bengals, might have shifted the defense's approach to coverage to allow guys like Kendall Wright to catch 10 passes or Adam Shaheen to catch four passes. Looking for a silver lining here. Inman, more than likely, will be back to his usual targets next week. Don't fret.
2017 Week 13 vs SF (2 / 2 / 21 / 1 rec)
Dontrelle Inman might be one of the few pieces on the Chicago Bears' roster who might live to see a contributing role next season. Inman, since coming over in a trade from San Diego, is the 2017 version of Cameron Meredith, just not as good. Inman, who was a No. 4/5 receiver for San Diego, serves as the Bears' No. 1 receiver. Opportunities are there for Inman, and if the rookie quarterback could get him the ball a bit more, the offense might be able to look a touch more explosive. Inman broke free from coverage to score the lone offensive touchdown for the Bears in Sunday's 15-14 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He finished the game with two catches on two targets for 21 yards and the aforementioned touchdown. Inman possesses the size and speed required to be a top-end receiver in the NFL. He simply doesn't possess the quarterback required at this stage of the game or season. If you're looking to take a flyer on a young pass catcher who have some unrecognized star potential, Inman might be that guy for you. The Trubisky-to-Inman connection needs to happen 10 times a game, not two times.
2017 Week 12 vs PHI (9 / 4 / 64 / 0 rec)
Inman had two nice catches on third and long, one of which was good for a conversion on the team's only scoring drive of the day. He also had two catches on the final garbage time drive and was the most targeted receiver for the Bears in the loss.
2017 Week 11 vs DET (5 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)
Inman wasn't a mainstay in the pass offense, but he had the catch to set up the game-tying field goal attempt and had another nice catch downfield when he came back to the ball to aid Trubisky.
2017 Week 10 vs GB (8 / 6 / 88 / 0 rec)
Welcome to the Chicago Bears, Dontrelle Inman. The former Chargers wide receiver played a team-high 57 snaps, catching six balls on eight targets for 88 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Inman brings something new and different to this Bears' offense. Inman has that rare combination of size and speed. With more time on the field with Mitchell Trubisky, there's no reason to think Inman won't see between 7-10 targets a game, on par with many No. 1s in the league. He already looks like the best route runner on the squad; and there's no question that he gets more separation than any other pass catcher. Those two facts were entirely apparent against the Packers, especially in man coverage scenarios. It's hard not to drink the Inman Kool-Aid after seeing Kendall Wright, Josh Bellamy and Deonte Thompson (now gone) flop around out there all season. Inman goes for 7-114-1 next time out, you watch.
2017 Week 4 vs PHI (1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Inman was rarely looked at, with his only reception coming on a 7-yard crossing route to pick up a first down. With everyone healthy, he is no better than the seventh option in the passing game.
