Summary

The wide receiver position in Chicago should see a boon this season in the form of Kevin White, the Bears first-round draft pick in 2015. White, a speedster who is both long and strong, is set to step into the No. 2 receiver role behind Alshon Jeffery, a long and strong pass-catcher in his own right. Jeffery's strength is not downfield speed; he more so is the guy who is going to dominate the middle of the field with his enormous range over the top of smaller cornerbacks and safeties. Jeffery, in his time in Chicago, has put up some great overall seasons, going over 1,000 yards receiving in two of his four seasons. If not for injury, Jeffery, without a doubt, would have gone above 1,000 yards receiving last season. In only nine games, Jeffery caught 54 passes for 807 yards and four scores. Jeffery's success in the NFL has come without the benefit of a guy opposite him who can stretch the field. While Brandon Marshall is a star, no question, he is not the guy who is going to charge downfield to create space over the middle. Jeffery, more so, played that role for Marshall, who made a habit of dominating the middle of the field. With White in tow, Jeffery should be able to put up monster numbers as a member of the franchise tag club. (July 14)

Bears | Chicago not sold on Alshon Jeffery? (Sat Jul 16, 01:53 PM) - Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery and the Bears did not agree to a long-term deal before the deadline Friday, July 15. ESPNChicago.com's Jeff Dickerson said the disconnect between both sides is obvious, and he questioned if the Bears view Jeffery as a No. 1 wide receiver.

Our View: Jeffery has a lot to play for in 2016...and that's great news for fantasy owners. With 2015 first-round pick Kevin White healthy and starting opposite Jeffery, that could open things up for the talented veteran. We wouldn't be surprised to see Jeffery catch 90 passes this year and finish as a top-10 fantasy WR. His current ADP is WR10 (2.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Bears | No long-term deal for Alshon Jeffery (Fri Jul 15, 04:12 PM) - Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery did not receive a long-term deal Friday, July 15, and will play under the one-year franchise tag.

Our View: Jeffery has already signed his franchise tender, so there's no threat of a holdout. He'll play this season with a one-year price tag of $14.5 million. Last year, Jeffery played in only nine games. With a full 16-game season (and the likely production that comes with that), we could see Jeffery get a payday similar to what Demaryius Thomas (Broncos) and Dez Bryant (Cowboys) got last year.
