Late touchdown proves Alshon Jeffery's worth
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(12/16/14) A late touchdown made things look a little better, but Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery didn't exactly shine in his first game without the injured Brandon Marshall in Week 15 against the Saints.
Jeffery -- playing without Marshall alongside him for the first time in his career -- had just one reception for 18 yards through the first three quarters. In fact, prior to a late, ultimately meaningless drive, he had just two catches for 36 yards, before hauling in two for 42 yards and a touchdown with 30 seconds left in the game.
Jeffery was predictably Jay Cutler's top target, as the quarterback looked his way on nine of his 31 passes. However, Cutler struggled to actually find Jeffery, though he did manage to extend his scoring streak to five games.
Jeffery is a massive target, especially near the end zone, which has helped him remain relevant even amid Cutler's struggles. Though he didn't quite live up to expectations in Marshall's absence, Jeffery showed he can still be a reliable Fantasy option. With just one or two games left, there's no way you can consider sitting Jeffery at this point in the season.
Alshon Jeffery comes through in garbage time
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(12/16/14) Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery had two catches for 36 yards with less than two minutes left in Monday's home loss to New Orleans. With Chicago trailing 31-8, quarterback Jay Cutler hit Jeffery twice on the team's final drive.
First Jeffery got loose for a 35-yard gain, then he caught a 7-yard fade for a touchdown with 30 seconds to go. Jeffery finished with four catches for 78 yards. He drew a team-high nine targets and scored for the fifth straight week.
Jeffery plays the Lions on Sunday.
Bears WR Alshon Jeffery leads the way Week 14
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/4/14) Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery led the team in receiving Week 14.
Jeffery hauled in six passes for 95 yards and a score. With Brandon Marshall leaving the game early in the second quarter, Jeffery became the team's primary option in the passing game. While he was mostly limited early, Jeffery seemed to come alive in the fourth quarter. On the first play, Jeffery hauled in a 27 yard touchdown pass from Jay Cutler. He would accumulate 79 of his 95 yards in the final quarter of the contest. Jeffery also drew a 29 yard defensive pass interference call early in the game.
He'll look for more Week 15 against the Saints.

Report: Bears WR Alshon Jeffery expected to play Thursday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(12/4/14) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, who is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury, is expected to play Thursday against the Cowboys, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Jeffery, who was limited in practice Wednesday, has 67 catches for 854 yards, including nine catches for 71 yards and two touchdowns against the Lions in Week 13.
|The combination of staying healthy and exploiting single coverage helped make Alshon Jeffery a hot name in Fantasy circles heading into 2014. Jeffery actually led the Bears in receiving yards with 1,421 and scored seven times to boot. He even added 105 yards rushing last season. It's a lot to live up to as he heads into his third year. One red flag worth considering: Jeffery's averages were better in six games with Josh McCown (39 balls for 648 yards/16.6 per catch and four scores) than they were in 10 games with Jay Cutler (50 passes for 773 yards/15.5 per catch and three touchdowns). Cutler will be the Bears' starting quarterback for the foreseeable future. Also, Jeffery averaged 16.0 yards per catch last season, an average that will be tough to maintain. Maybe ease expectations a bit and consider Jeffery a very solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver worth a late third-round pick in PPR leagues and a fourth-round choice in standard formats.
