John Fox: New conditioning program will aid Alshon Jeffery


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/25/2015) Bears coach John Fox is changing the team's offseason conditioning program, and he thinks the tweaks will help wideout Alshon Jeffery, reports ESPN.com. Jeffery is the Bears' No. 1 receiver now that Brandon Marshall has been traded to the Jets.

The 25-year-old dealt with nagging hamstring problems last year.

“I really liked Alshon coming out [of college],” Fox said at the NFL owners' meetings. “One of the things I’d say is we had a lot of soft-tissue injuries last year as a football team. We’ve kind of changed philosophically in the weight room. I think you’ll see we’re going to do things a lot different from offseason conditioning, the approach to how we handle that. I don’t think we had a soft-tissue injury a year ago in Denver other than one particular guy.”

Jeffery caught 85 passes for 1,133 yards and 10 touchdowns last year, his second straight 1,000-yard season.

“I think [the new conditioning approach] will help him,” Fox said. “There have been times in his career when he might have been a little bit overweight, but obviously a beast as far as size, and a guy we’re looking forward to getting to know better.”


Bears GM on Forte, Jeffery extensions: 'It's a slow process'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) Bears general manager Ryan Pace appeared noncommittal when asked to discuss potential contract extensions for players like Matt Forte and Alshon Jeffery during his combine press conference, according to ESPN. Pace, however, did admit that "it's a slow process."

"I just want to take it on a case by case basis. It's a slow process," Pace said. "I know you guys are going to ask questions from a million different angles but again it's just my job and John's [Fox] job and our staff's job to just be thorough and slow with this process. I know there is a time frame but I don't want to rush any decisions."

Forte, 29, is entering the final year of the four-year contract extension he signed in 2012. He is due to collect a $6.650 million base salary, along with a $1.050 million roster bonus, and $100,000 workout bonus. Jeffery, 25, is also entering the final year of a four-year, $4.54 million contract. He is due to make $960,157, and a $50,000 workout bonus in 2015.


Bears TE Bennett does heavy lifting; WR Jeffery held in check


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Bears tight end Martellus Bennett did most of the heavy lifting in the aerial attack, while wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was held in check in Sunday's season finale against Minnesota.

Bennett led the way with eight catches for 59 yards on 11 targets. He finishes the season with 90 catches for 916 yards and six scores. Jeffery caught only two of five passes thrown in his direction for 34 yards in a 13-9 defeat. He turned 145 targets into 85 catches for 1,133 yards and a career-best 10 touchdowns.


Backup quarterback won't ruin Alshon Jeffery


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2014) Though the Bears passing game didn't fare so well overall with the switch to Jimmy Clausen at quarterback Week 16 against Detroit, top wide receiver Alshon Jeffery made as much of an impact as usual, catching six passes for 72 yards and a touchdown. He's had between 70 and 80 receiving yards in three of his last four games, scoring at least one touchdown in six straight.

His 15 targets were actually the second-most he's had in a game this season, but that's not too surprising since it was his first game without Brandon Marshall on the opposite side of the field. Marshall is out for the season because of rib and lung injuries.

Clausen threw for only 181 yards against the Lions, but it was an especially difficult matchup. And with Jeffery no longer competing with Marshall for looks, he was able to make a major impact regardless.

Don't worry so much about his quarterback. Just keep running Jeffery out there Week 17 at Minnesota.


Production of Bears WR Jeffery cut short in fourth Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Bears premier receiver Alshon Jeffery did not catch a pass in the fourth quarter Sunday against Detroit. That proved critical in a loss.

Jeffery did snag six of his game-high 14 targets for 72 yards. Among them was a 20-yard score late in the third quarter. That, however, was his last catch.

The Bears play at Minnesota in Week 17.


Late touchdown proves Alshon Jeffery's worth


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) 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 | Senior Analyst
(12/16/2014) 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
(12/4/2014) 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.

Bears WR Alshon Jeffery totals two TDs in losing effort Week 13


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery recorded two receiving touchdowns during a 34-17 loss at Detroit on Thanksgiving. He totaled nine catches for 71 yards.

Jeffery, who was targeted a team-high 13 times, opened the scoring with a 10-yard touchdown catch early in the first quarter. He added a 6-yard touchdown catch late in the first quarter for the second multitouchdown game of his career.

Inconsistency a fact of life with Bears passing game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) The Bears' passing attack boasts more talent than just about any team in the league, but quarterback Jay Cutler's struggles have made life tough for wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall .

Marshall and Jeffery combined for just 54 yards on six receptions in Week 12 against the Buccaneers, and Marshall managed just 3 Fantasy points in the 21-13 win. Jeffery finished the game with just 22 yards, but at least came away with a 2-yard touchdown for his troubles, giving him two in his last two games.

Jeffery and Marshall combined for 225 yards in the team's previous game, a good example of just how much trouble they've had finding consistency. Both players are on pace to finish the season well short of the totals they compiled a year ago, but remain too talented to consider sitting on a game-by-game basis, even with how unreliable they have been. 


Bears WR Alshon Jeffery finds the end zone


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery found the end zone Week 12 against the Bucs.

Jeffery finished with just 22 yards on three catches. He did make the most of his limited work, hauling in a 2 yard touchdown pass from Jay Cutler in the third quarter. The Bears offense was limited in the passing, and none of the team's receivers turned in a strong game. 

Jeffery will look for more Week 13 against the Lions. 


Alshon Jeffery, Brandon Marshall ready to go for Bears


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) The Bears will have both Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall Week 12 against the Buccaneers.

Both players came into the contest listed as probable, and were always expected to play. The team will also have Ego Ferguson and Josh Morgan. Both players were also listed as probable.

Two top Bears receivers probable for Sunday battle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) Bears premier wideouts Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) should be ready to roll when their team hosts Tampa Bay on Sunday. Both have been deemed probable.

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

Bears WR Alshon Jeffery comes alive Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery turned in a strong game Week 11 against the Vikings.

Jeffery will take on the Buccaneers Week 12. 


Alshon Jeffery catches six passes in Bears' Week 10 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery caught six of his 12 targets for 63 yards with no touchdowns in his team's 55-14 loss to the Packers in Week 10.

Despite the Bears falling behind big in the first half, Jeffery wasn't able to rack up statistics after the game got out of hand. While his 12 targets were the most since Week 3, Jeffery has only managed one score in his last four games. Teammate Brandon Marshall suffered an ankle injury late in Sunday's loss, and Jeffery could be in for more looks if Marshall winds up missing time. The Bears will be looking to rebound in Week 11 against the Vikings.


Bears WR Alshon Jeffery scores late


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Bears wideout Alshon Jeffery managed a late score Week 8 against the Patriots. 

Jeffery wasn't much of a factor early, catching two passes for 14 yards before the fourth quarter. With Chicago down late, Jeffery made some plays during garbage time. With about five minutes left in the contest, he hauled in a 10 yard score from Jay Cutler. Jeffery would add a 22 yard reception on the team's final drive, but that was it. He finished with five catches for 59 yards. 

Jeffery is on a bye Week 9.


Alshon Jeffery a better bet than Brandon Marshall against Pats


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) The Bears love to air it out but didn't do such a good job of it Week 7 against Miami, with quarterback Jay Cutler throwing for just 190 yards and a touchdown. Unfortunately, the outlook isn't much better for Week 8 at New England.

The Patriots rank first against the pass, allowing 208.0 yards per game. Even worse for Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, they've given up the second-fewest Fantasy points per game to wide receivers.

Darrelle Revis is, of course, a big reason for that. The lockdown cornerback isn't quite as reliable as he used to be, but he's still capable of taking a top target out of the game, as he did with the Bills' Sammy Watkins a couple weeks ago. Against the Bears, that would probably be Marshall.

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard aren't deterred, ranking both Marshall and Jeffery among their top 12 wide receivers for this week (with Marshall higher), and in traditional Fantasy leagues, you could certainly make the argument that they're too good to risk sitting. But in one-week leagues like FanDuel where you have your choice of every player, they're risky, Marshall especially. It's not like he has been so reliable this year anyway.
