|6-3, 216||Born: 2-14-1990||College: South Carolina||Drafted: Round 2|
News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 26): In typical Jeffery fashion, the big wideout was clearly hobbled but also produced a reasonable fantasy stat line. He has a great matchup next week against the Lions, so we'll stick with Jeffery and hope that his ability to manage his injuries keeps his WR1 fantasy value intact.
Week 4: vs Detroit Lions

2016 Week 3 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 70 / 0 rec)
Alshon Jeffery was questionable on the injury report with a hamstring injury heading into Sunday night's game. So it should be no surprise that we was hobbling around a bit throughout the game. Jeffery has millions of reasons to be on the field every week of the season, seeing as he's playing on the franchise tag and every missed game is a missed opportunity for him to show NFL teams just how good he can play. Nonetheless, Jeffery caught five passes for 70 yards on seven targets. Dallas' defense put its top corner on Jeffery throughout the entire game, ultimately forcing Brian Hoyer to beat the Cowboys in other ways. The Bears, at this time, don't have another wide receiver that's good enough to warrant attention away from Jeffery, so it's going to be an uphill climb each and every week this season.
2016 Week 2 vs PHI (7 / 5 / 96 / 0 rec)
Alshon Jeffery was hands down Chicago's best offensive player in Monday's loss to the Eagles. Catching five passes on seven targets for 96 yards, Jeffery gave Bears management another reason to rip up the franchise tag and lock him up long term. Jeffery is one of the most difficult receivers to cover in the league. He's big; he's strong; and he can jump really high. In back-to-back weeks now, Jeffery has picked up big yards on what's become his signature catch, "the jump ball." Jeffery and Jay Cutler connected for a 49-yard gain against the Eagles, a play that put the Bears in position to punch it in the end zone. Jeffery is a really good wide receiver, one of the best in the league. But it will be hard for Jeffery to show off his talents playing for this team, next to a broken offensive line and a (possibly) broken quarterback.
2016 Week 1 vs HOU (6 / 4 / 105 / 0 rec)
Jeffery had a great game and was the best offensive player on the field for the Bears. His deep catch was the biggest play of the day and his layoff in the preseason did not seem to affect him. He was getting a great release, separating from defensive backs, and timing his leaps impeccably. He could have his best year yet if he can stay healthy. Jeffery did have a drop when the Bears needed a big play to get them going in the second half, but it was still a solid day for him.
Latest NewsBears | Alshon Jeffery active for SNF (Sun Sep 25, 07:25 PM) - Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee) is active for the Week 3 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Our View: Jeffery has some risk of his knee issue flaring up, but he has a gunner at quarterback in Brian Hoyer and a history of playing well through injuries.
link to story Bears | Alshon Jeffery expected to play Sunday (Sun Sep 25, 09:31 AM) - Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Dallas Cowboys, according to a source. Our View: Jeffery is the type of player that you have to start as long as he is active. Brian Hoyer hasn't played much at all with Jeffery, but it only takes a few bold downfield targets for Jeffery to put up a huge game. Jeffery has played well through injuries in the past.
link to story Bears | Brian Hoyer concerned about chemistry? (Sat Sep 24, 10:38 PM) - Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer has pointed out throughout the week that he has not had many reps with WR Alshon Jeffery this season. Our View: Jeffery is still the kind of receiver who can adjust on the fly to poor passes and otherwise have his talent reign on the field no matter the circumstances. Hoyer was able to feed DeAndre Hopkins enough to make him an elite fantasy wide receiver, so as long as Jeffery is active tonight, you have to play him.
link to story Bears | Alshon Jeffery limited Friday (Fri Sep 23, 02:10 PM) - Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee) got in a limited practice Friday, Sept. 23, and will likely be deemed questionable for Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys. Our View: It sounds like Jeffery is going to play. If he can't, Kevin White, Eddie Royal, Cole Beasley, Mohamed Sanu, and Michael Thomas are all viable injury hedges at wide receiver. Jeffery has played well through injuries in the past, so if he's active, you have to go with him, even with Brian Hoyer (who fed DeAndre Hopkins last year) at quarterback.
link to story Bears | Alshon Jeffery does not practice (Thu Sep 22, 03:24 PM) - Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 22. Our View: We're hoping Jeffery plays, but along with his knee, he has a quarterback issue. Brian Hoyer isn't exactly an exciting prospect—then again, this Dallas defense is pretty shaky. We have Jeffery as a solid WR2 based on the match-up and talent, but keep an eye on practices the next two days.
