Best Case

Jeffery had a breakout season last year, posting some monster games and pushing his way into the top 10 from a fantasy prospective in just his second season. Another year under Marc Trestman and Jeffery could emerge as an NFL Elite receiver. With Brandon Marshall keeping defenses from double teaming Jeffery, and Jay Cutler with time to find the open man, Jeffery could see a lot more one-on-one coverage down the field. With his big play potential and great physical stats, Jeffery could easily finish the season as a top five fantasy receiver this year.

Worst Case

A big chunk of Jeffery’s stats came when Jay Cutler was on the sideline. While Cutler may be a better quarterback than Josh McCown, Cutler also likes to get the ball to Brandon Marshall. McCown is gone and if Cutler is under center, he’s going to look Marshall’s way early and often. Jeffery still has big play potential, so his floor is pretty high compared to most. That being said, with Cutler under center, Jeffery’s upside will definitely be limited. People expecting a top 10 performance might find a guy posting WR2 stats instead.

Outlook

It’s hard not to be excited when thinking about what Alshon Jeffery can do in his third NFL season, and second under offensive minded coach Marc Trestman. With Trestman calling the shots, the Bears went from a 3300 yard passing team in 2012 to a 4400 yard passing team last year. Jeffery was their big play threat and his third season has set the table for him to push himself into NFL elite status. While Jay Cutler does like to get Brandon Marshall the ball, Jeffery’s talent is undeniable, and he’s going to get plenty of opportunities to make an impact. Look for another solid performance from Jeffery this season, with a possible top 10 fantasy finish again this year.
