From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 27): At least Jeffery got a garbage time score for us. He still looks like he could be a fantasy stud again in the blink of an eye if the Bears just get it together over the bye. His value is too depressed to sell right now, and he could still help deliver a title with his massive weekly upside.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs ATL (7 / 5 / 136 / 0 rec, 2 / 0 / 0 rush)

Jeffery looked great in Sunday's win over the Falcons. The Bears' No. 2 receiver finished with 136 yards on five catches, marking the second time this season he's gone over 100 yards. The best part of his performance was the health he displayed out on the field, meaning he didn't appear to be hobbled by the hamstring injury he suffered Week 1 against Buffalo. Cutler hit Jeffery deep for a 74-yard reception that could have gone for six had the quarterback thrown the ball a few yards deeper. Jeffery blew past the Falcons cornerback, showing a burst of speed we haven't seen in quite a long time. Now the second best part is the fact that Brandon Marshall also went over 100 yards, which means that Cutler once again has two targets who can stretch the field after playing a dink-and-dunk style the previous two weeks. As long as Jeffery can stay healthy, expect big numbers from him each and every week.

2014 Week 7 vs MIA (7 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)

Jeffery only caught two passes for nine yards on seven targets against the Dolphins, and both catches came on the first two plays of the game. Jay Cutler threw two deep, jump-ball passes Jeffery's way, but the receiver couldn't come down with the ball against the Dolphins secondary. There really is no rhythm or reason to Jeffery's lack of production, and it's not something to be concerned about. The lack of production speaks more to the poor gameplan installed by head coach Marc Trestman. Jeffery will be back to putting up big numbers once the Bears' offense enters the game with a more in-tune plan of attack.

2014 Week 8 vs NE (8 / 5 / 59 / 1 rec)

Jeffery had a sub par game Sunday against the Patriots, even though he was able to find the end zone. The Bears' receiver caught five passes for 58 yards on eight targets. The Patriots secondary played a very physical style of football against Jeffery, making it difficult to get out of his break without taking some sort of contact. Jeffery didn't look ready for it, either. This has been somewhat of a common thing of late, too. Because Jeffery has struggled to get open, Jay Cutler has been forced to throw into traffic more often than not. It's one of the reasons Cutler has thrown eight interceptions this season any the Bears offense has sputtered at some point in each game this season. Jeffery now has the bye week to look at film and maybe work on some new moves that could help him create separation.
