WR Josh Bellamy - Free Agent
|6-0, 206||Born: 5-8-1989||College: Louisville||Drafted: ---|
2019 Week 1 vs BUF (1 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Bellamy's one catch came in the first quarter and the journeyman receiver showed some decent speed after the catch. He will remain more of a special teams player.
2019 Week 2 vs CLE (2 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Bellamy didn't see much action, and only made one catch in the fourth quarter. With so many screens being thrown, it didn't seem like Bellamy was part of the gameplan.
2018 Week 4 vs TB (1 / 1 / 20 / 1 rec)
There is no fantasy relevance to Bellamy long term this season, but he did manage to make 1 big play this week. He had a 20-yard touchdown catch to put the Bears up 28-3 early in the second quarter. The Bears went play action despite not having much success running the ball and Bellamy found himself wide open down the left sideline. He slipped right into the void in Tampa's zone coverage. Trubisky evaded the pass rush and threw a high arcing ball right to Bellamy who walked into the end zone untouched. The Bears brought in an entirely new receiving core for Trubisky, but Bellamy does not figure to play a big role in that.
2017 Week 4 vs GB (6 / 3 / 36 / 0 rec)
Bellamy was involved when the game wasn't totally out of hand, but didn't pad his stats in garbage time. He dropped what could have been a long score to change the complexion of the game.
2017 Week 15 vs DET (7 / 5 / 70 / 0 rec)
Bellamy had two penalties, but also had four catches of 13 yards or longer. He appears to be the main downfield threat for the Bears pass offense at this point.
2016 Week 14 vs DET (7 / 3 / 45 / 0 rec)
Josh Bellamy is an average receiver at best. He drops more passes than he catches, it seems. OK, maybe not, but the balls he does drop always appear to be important. Two weeks ago against Tennessee, Bellamy dropped what would have been a game-winning touchdown in the end zone. Now, Sunday, Bellamy dropped a pass on fourth down that would have moved the Bears into range to try a game-tying field goal late in the fourth quarter. Bellamy finished the game with three catches on seven targets for 45 yards. Even though Bellamy is playing a lot of snaps, he simply cannot be counted on. The moment Alshon Jeffery is back from suspension, Bellamy should be the guy to see fewer snaps.
2016 Week 16 vs WAS (2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Josh Bellamy's bad hands have cost him targets over the past few weeks. Chicago's most prolific pass-dropper only has seen five targets in the past two games after a three-game stretch of seeing 22 targets. Obviously it doesn't help that Alshon Jeffery returned to the field. But it's very obvious that Bellamy's inability to hang onto the football at key moments of the game has put him in the dog house. Deonte Thompson has shown to be a more reliable third-or-fourth receiving option for Matt Barkley.
2016 Week 17 vs MIN (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 2 / 18 / 0 rush)
Bellamy had a nice gain on an early end around, but otherwise was in the background in this one.
2015 Week 9 vs SD (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Bellamy snagged a short catch in the second half for minimal yardage, trying to get back penalty yardage that Chicago had lost on the previous play. Aside from that catch, his name wasn't heard the rest of the way.
