Alshon Jeffery not practicing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery came out dressed for practice but then removed his helmet and pads and stood on the sideline watching, reports the Chicago Sun-Times. It was not immediately clear why Jeffery isn't practicing.

Alshon Jeffery headed to the Pro Bowl


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/9/2014) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is headed to the Pro Bowl after all.

Jeffery will replace Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who is dealing with a knee injury. After a breakout season, Jeffery was seen as a snub when the Pro Bowl rosters were initially announced. He caught 89 passes for 1421 yards and seven touchdowns. He'll joins teammates Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte at the game.


Alshon Jeffery just misses eighth touchdown


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery just missed his eighth touchdown of the season during Sunday’s regular season finale against the Packers in Week 17.

Jeffery hauled in a 67-yard catch in the third quarter and was brought down one-yard shy of the end zone. He caught three of the eight passes thrown in his direction for a team-high 80 yards in a 33-28 defeat.

Jeffery had a breakout season, as he finished the year with 89 catches for 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns -- all career highs for the 23-year-old.

Alshon Jeffery ready to get back in end zone


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will try to get back in the end zone during Sunday's regular season finale against the Packers in Week 17.

Jeffery was held out of the end zone for the first time since Week Week 12 during last week's loss to Philadelphia. He caught six of the nine passes thrown his way for 76 yards in Week 16. In a 27-20 Week 9 victory at Green Bay, Jeffery caught five passes for 60 yards and a touchdown. He has 86 catches for 1,341 yards and seven touchdowns this season.

The Packers have allowed six touchdowns to wide receivers over the past four games. Opposing wide receivers have scored 23.60 Fantasy points per game in standard league against Green Bay. Jeffery is in the midst of a breakout season and should be able to end things on a high note, so consider him a solid starting option for Week 17.

Alshon Jeffery can't find end zone


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery, who had scored four touchdowns in his previous three games, was held out of the end zone Week 16 at Philadelphia. Jeffery tied Brandon Marshall for the team lead with nine targets and caught six passes for 76 yards.

Up to 86 catches for 1,341 yards and seven touchdowns, Jeffery plays the Packers in Week 17. He had five grabs for 60 yards and a score Week 9 at Green Bay.


Count on Alshon Jeffery for another incredible touchdown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) The numbers don't do justice to Alshon Jeffery's second season. Sure the Bears receiver enters Week 16 as the No. 6 Fantasy wideout, but he's probably No. 1 when it comes to making ridiculous touchdown grabs.

In each of the last two weeks, a Bears quarterback lofted a pass into double coverage and the 6-3 Jeffery came down with it for a touchdown. There was the 25-yarder against Dallas, the 45-yarder at Cleveland. Jeffery has caught four touchdown passes the last three weeks, seven this season. He ranks seventh with 1,285 receiving yards.

Sunday night, Jeffery visits an Eagles team giving up the most Fantasy points (29.3 per game) to opposing wideouts. Receivers have caught a league-high 19 touchdowns vs. Philly, a trend likely to continue. Between Brandon Marshall and Jeffery, and possibly Earl Bennett, there are more than enough Fantasy points to go around.

Start Jeffery as a solid WR1.


Alshon Jeffery has Week 15 touchdown


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery caught five passes for 72 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Browns. He was targeted five times. 

Jeffery scored his touchdown on a 45-yard pass reception in the fourth quarter. Jay Cutler threw into double coverage, and Jeffery pulled off another stellar catch, pulling the ball down and tumbling into the end zone. 

The five targets were the fewest for Jeffery since Week 6. This was his seventh receiving touchdown of the year, and the yardage puts him at 1,265 for the season. 

The Bears play the Eagles in Week 15. 


Alshon Jeffery has nice Week 15 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) It's unclear as to which Bears receiver will get the Joe Haden treatment in Week 15, but even if it is Alshon Jeffery, there are enough reasons to keep the second-year wideout in your lineup for Sunday's game against the Browns. 

Jeffery has scored double-digit Fantasy points in four of his last six games (in standard formats), with four touchdowns in that span, as well as his second 200-yard game of the season. He already has 1,193 receiving yards this year. 

The Browns, meanwhile, have allowed 11 touchdowns to wide receivers over the last seven games. Julian Edelman, Cecil Shorts, and Antonio Brown all caught touchdowns with Haden covering them, and those 11 touchdowns have been spread out among 10 players -- which is a good sign for the Bears, who have both Jeffery and Brandon Marshall vying for targets. 

Jeffery is a stellar option in both PPR and standard formats, and can be started in most Fantasy leagues. 


Alshon Jeffery makes incredible touchdown catch


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery made an absurd 25-yard touchdown catch right before halftime Week 14. He finished with five catches for 84 yards and is up to 1,193 receiving yards this season.

Jeffery shared the team lead with nine targets, including an end-zone throw that was off the mark. He lost seven yards on a reverse.

With 17 catches for 333 yards and three touchdowns the past two weeks, Jeffery heads to Cleveland in Week 15 as one of the league's hottest receivers.


Alshon Jeffery not playing second fiddle to Brandon Marshall


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) No longer a complementary piece, Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery enters Week 14 vs. Dallas as arguably a better play than teammate Brandon Marshall. Two of CBSSports.com's three Fantasy experts rate Jeffery ahead of Marshall this week.

Jeffery is the No. 5 Fantasy wideout, one spot behind Marshall, after going off for 12 catches, 249 yards and two touchdowns against Minnesota. He's fourth in the NFL with 1,103 receiving yards, and eighth among receivers with 118 targets, six fewer than Marshall.

Jeffery is the eighth player in NFL history with a pair of 200-yard receiving games in one season. One note of caution: After his first 200-yard game, Jeffery came back with a clunker, catching a 27-yard pass and getting a 15-yard run vs. the Giants.

He'll do more against Dallas. The Cowboys give up the 14th-most Fantasy points to receivers (22.8 per game).

It doesn't matter whether Josh McCown or Jay Cutler starts at quarterback. Jeffery has thrived with both. Physically dominant at 6-3, 216 pounds, and with tremendous leaping ability, Jeffery will be too much for Dallas' secondary. He's a top-10 play Monday night.


Alshon Jeffery posts second 200-yard game in 2013


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery became the first receiver in franchise history to record more than one 200-yard receiving performance in a single season when he totaled a franchise-best 249 yards during a 23-20 overtime loss Week 13 at Minnesota. Jeffery beat his own franchise record, which he set in Week 5 against the Saints with 218 yards.

Jeffery was very active from the get-go Sunday. He had seven catches for 89 yards before halftime, which were the highest first-half totals of Jeffery's career. But he really came to life in the third quarter for Chicago.

On the Bears' second play of the third quarter, Jeffery had an 80-yard catch-and-run touchdown -- the longest score of his career. The Bears put Jeffery in the slot, Josh McCown dropped a perfectly placed pass over the defender, and Jeffery did the rest as he broke one tackle and sped away from the defense.

Jeffery wasn't done scoring in the third quarter. He came back later in the quarter to post a 46-yard touchdown, which is the second-longest touchdown of his career. It was probably even more impressive than the first touchdown. Jeffery made a beautiful two-handed catch over the defender at the 2-yard line and his momentum carried him into the end zone for his second score.

Sunday marked the first multi-touchdown game of Jeffery's career and he finished with a career-high 12 catches. The Bears are back in action Week 14 vs. Dallas.


Alshon Jeffery having career day at Minnesota


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is having a career performance Week 13 at Minnesota. Jeffery has posted 10 catches for 234 yards and two touchdowns through three quarters, which already has topped his previous franchise record of 218 receiving yards (Week 5 vs. New Orleans).

Jeffery had a monster third quarter, which featured touchdown catches of 46 and 80 yards.


Not time to give up on Alshon Jeffery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery wasn't much of a factor the first time he played the Vikings in Week 2, totaling one catch for 11 yards and rushing for 30 yards on two carries. Fantasy owners are hoping for a different and better story in the Week 13 rematch against the NFC North foe.

Jeffery's production has quieted down a bit since Josh McCown has taken over as the starting quarterback for the injured Jay Cutler. Jeffery is averaging 62.5 receiving yards in McCown's last two starts, and Jeffery doesn't have a touchdown in his last three games either.

Wide receivers are averaging 183.8 receiving yards and 24.2 Fantasy points per week against the Vikings. Wide receivers have totaled 12 touchdowns in 11 games, with Jordy Nelson being the only receiver to have multiple touchdowns against Minnesota.

Jeffery was at his best in October, when he totaled 350 yards and averaged 23.3 yards per catch in three games. His production in November hasn't been quite as good, but it's not like he isn't involved on offense. The Vikings present a favorable matchup, so Jeffery is still a viable Fantasy start Week 13.


Alshon Jeffery has 42 receiving yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery caught four passes for 42 yards in Sunday's 42-21 loss to the Rams. Jeffery was targeted eight times, and rushed once for four yards. 

Jeffery also had a 28-yard run in the second quarter called back for holding. 

The 42 yards were the fewest for Jeffery since Week 6 against the Giants, when he caught one pass for 27 yards. This was the first game since the Week 8 bye in which Jeffery failed to reach double digits in targets. 

The Bears face the Vikings next Sunday. Jeffery caught one pass for 11 yards in Week 2, when the teams first met. 


Alshon Jeffery seeing plenty of targets with new QB


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/21/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has seen an average of 13 targets over his last three games (all following a Week 8 bye). He's averaging over 10 Fantasy points in standard leagues over that span. There seems to be no significant dropoff with Josh McCown as his quarterback (replacing the injured Jay Cutler); as Jeffery's last four games can be held favorably against his season-long output. 

In Week 12, Jeffery faces the Rams, who have been middle-of-the-pack this season against wide receivers. And while there's no exact parallel to the Bears' receiving duo, the closest comparison (as far as the Rams' opponents) may be Jacksonville. In their Week 5 game against the Jags, the Rams allowed Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts to both score touchdowns, with Blackmon catching five passes for 136 yards and Shorts catching five for 74. 

Jeffery has established himself as a consistently solid Fantasy receiver, no matter what the format. He can be started in most leagues. 


Alshon Jeffery leads the pack Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery led the team in receiving Week 11 against the Ravens.

Jeffery was targeted a team-high 11 times by backup quarterback Josh McCown. He caught seven passes for 83 yards. Jeffery was also a threat in the running game. He received three rushing attempts for 17 yards. Jeffery's inexperience showed a few times during the game. He fumbled on an 8 yard reception, but was fortunate to come up with the ball. He also nearly fumbled on a second play, but it was ruled that Jeffery did not complete the catch before the ball came out. Jeffery was also targeted twice in the end zone, and managed to force a defensive holding call on one play, giving the Bears better field position.

Jeffery will try to continue his strong play Week 12 against the Rams.


Alshon Jeffery a solid play Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is a solid play Week 11 against the Ravens.

Baltimore has been susceptible in the pass game, allowing 16 passing touchdowns through nine games. The team has given up 23.44 Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers, one of the higher totals in the league. The Ravens have been one of the best teams against the run thus far, so the Bears may have to rely on the passing game in order to win.

Jeffery hasn't missed a beat when the team has turned to McCown this season. Against Washington, Jeffery picked up six of his seven targets once McCown entered the game. The following week against Green Bay, Jeffery had a solid nine targets. On the team's final drive against the Lions, Jeffery received three targets from McCown. Jeffery has emerged as a strong threat in the Bears' passing game, and shouldn't lose much even with McCown in the lineup. 


Alshon Jeffery has another 100-yard game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery turned in another impressive performance during Sunday’s loss to the Lions in Week 10.

Jeffery was heavily targeted as he finished with a team-high nine receptions for 114 yards (12.7 yards per catch) in a 21-19 defeat. He was targeted a team-high 18 times.

Jeffery cracked the century mark for the fourth time in the last six games. He has 631 receiving yards and three touchdowns over that span. He'll look to stay productive at home against the Ravens in Week 11.

Alshon Jeffery seeking fourth TD


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will be looking for his fourth touchdown of the season during Sunday's contest against the Lions in Week 10.

Jeffery has three 100-yard performances over the past five games. With Josh McCown under center, Jeffery caught five passes for 60 yards and a touchdown. He'll likely have Jay Cutler back as his quarterback, which is another positive sign for Fantasy owners.

Jeffery will face a Detroit defense that has allowed a wide receiver to score in each of the last five games. In fact, they have allowed five touchdowns to wide receivers over the past two games. Our Fantasy owners have him ranked in the Top 20 this week. Fantasy owners should continue to roll with Jeffery in most formats for Week 10.

Alshon Jeffery records third touchdown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery caught his third touchdown of the season in the win at Green Bay, using his length to snatch a 6-yard pass from Josh McCown. Jeffery finished with five catches for 60 yards as he was targeted nine times, second on the team.

Jeffery has 20 catches over his last four games heading into Week 10 vs. the Lions.


Alshon Jeffery going for fourth 100-yard effort in five games


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2013) Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery enters Week 9 at Green Bay leading his team in receiving yards (561) after posting three 100-yard games in his last four outings. He caught four passes for 105 yards in Week 7, all from backup Josh McCown in the second half at Washington.

McCown will start Monday night and might have to throw plenty to keep pace with Aaron Rodgers. It's another plus matchup for Jeffery, who always benefits from the attention Brandon Marshall demands.

The Packers rank in the middle of the pack in defending wideouts. They've yielded seven touchdowns to the position, though none in the past two weeks. With six teams on a bye, consider Jeffery a low-end WR2.


Alshon Jeffery goes over 100 yards again


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery only caught four passes on Sunday during the Week 7 loss at Washington. That said, he averaged 26.3 yards per reception and finished with a team-high 105 yards. 

Jeffery caught four balls for 105 yards and did not score. He saw seven targets come his way from quarterbacks Jay Cutler and Josh McCown. Jeffery added two carries in the game for 16 yards as he had an 11-yard run. Jeffery did not score in the contest. 

The 23-year-old receiver has topped 100 yards in three of his last four games and has two scores over that span. The Bears have a bye Week 8 and return Week 9 at Green Bay on Monday night. 


Alshon Jeffery should bounce back


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2013) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery went bust last week after two outstanding games for Jay Cutler in Weeks 4 and 5. Jeffery had 15 catches for 325 yards and two touchdowns in those two games, but came back last week against the Giants with just one catch for 27 yards.

Which Jeffery will show up Week 7 at Washington? Due to the Redskins' defensive struggles, we are going to expect big things once again from the Chicago wideout.

Washington is allowing the sixth-most Fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts. They have allowed wide receivers to make 69 receptions for 998 yards and six touchdowns this season after five games. Washington has already allowed five different receivers to rack up over 100 yards against them.

We still believe Brandon Marshall to be the more desirable Bears receiver for Sunday's game, but Jeffery will put up a solid performance. Consider him a No. 2 or 3 Fantasy option for the game against the Redskins.
