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. Ferguson is getting over an illness. Morgan has a shoulder injury. Demontre Hurst , who was listed as questionable, will attempt to play through a knee injury. 


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.

Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery back at practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2014) Bears receivers Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday, each putting in limited work, reports the Chicago Tribune. Both are on track to play Sunday against the Buccaneers.

Bears hold out Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery on Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2014) The Bears held receivers Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) out of Wednesday's practice as the team began preparations for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, reports ESPN.com. The duo combined for 18 catches, 225 yards and three touchdowns in last week's win over Minnesota.

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 led the team with 11 catches and 135 yards. He also managed to haul in the team's first touchdown of the game. In the second quarter, Jeffery hooked up with Jay Cutler on a 27 yard touchdown strike. Jeffery flashed more big play ability, pulling down a 34 yard catch later in the contest. 

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.


Bears WR Alshon Jeffery takes step back in loss to Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, who cracked 100 yards his last time out, took a step backward in a disappointing loss to Miami in Week 7.

Jeffery caught passes for 5 and 4 yards on back-to-back plays to start the opening drive of the afternoon. He was held without a grab the rest of the way. Jeffery as targeted seven times and finished with two catches for 9 yards in a 27-14 defeat. Jeffery 504 receiving yards this season. 

The Bears will face the Patriots in Foxboro Week 8.


Quiet game not a concern for Bears' receivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Dolphins cornerbacks don't stand particularly tall, so smart money was on the Bears' big wideouts going off for big games. So, why were Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall so silent in Week 7?

Quarterback Jay Cutler struggled with his accuracy Sunday, which helps explain the issues Marshall and Jeffery had. When throwing to tight ends or running backs, Cutler completed 76.5 percent of his passes, but he connected on just 8 of 17 to Marshall or Jeffery. The Dolphins got pressure on Cutler well, so the Bears' receivers were unable to get open downfield; they had just 57 combined yard son their eight receptions.

Marshall and Jefferey both had 100-plus yards last week, so this is probably just a bump in the road. Marshall was unhappy with the team's offensive execution after the game, so you can bet he will work hard to get on the same page with Cutler moving forward. Don't consider benching either player for Week 8 against the Patriots next Sunday. 


Bears could pass all over the Dolphins


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Wide receivers have terrorized the Dolphins over the last two games, and that trend is unlikely to change in Week 7 with Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and the Bears on the schedule.

The Dolphins' pass defense had mostly held up through the first three games of the season, as they allowed just 13.3 Fantasy points per game to wide receivers in that span. Unfortunately, the Raiders and Packers' receiving corps have racked up 62 Fantasy points against them over the last two games, and Jeffery and Marshall should be able to keep that up.

Marshall has not faced the Dolphins since his departure from the team in 2012, while Jeffery has never faced them in his career. Still both players are coming off 100-yard performances and should be viewed as must-start Fantasy options for this matchup. 


Alshon Jeffery totals 136 yards on five catches in Week 6


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery led his offense with 136 receiving yards on just five catches in his team's 27-13 win over the Falcons in Week 6.

After the Falcons evened the score at 13-13 in the third quarter, Jeffery did his biggest chunk of damage, gaining 74 yards on a bomb by Jay Cutler to put his team in position for the go-ahead touchdown. With the season high in receiving yardage, Jeffery is up to 31 receptions for 495 yards and two touchdowns. He'll try and deliver another big performance against the Dolphins in Week 7.


Bears WR Alshon Jeffery does his part in Week 5 effort


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) At least one half of the super receiving duo for the Bears racked up big numbers Sunday in Carolina. That was Alshon Jeffery.

Jeffery hauled in a one-handed 31-yarder early in the first quarter and remained on a roll. He snagged a quick-strike 25-yard touchdown pass four minutes into the second and made what could have been a huge play on a 20-yard reception just before the two-minute warning in the fourth that went for naught. He finished with six catches for 97 yards and the score.

He will hope his fine work results in a victory when the Bears play at Atlanta in Week 6.


Alshon Jeffery follows good first half with bad second Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery seemed destined for a big game Sunday against Green Bay, but was shut down as his team was shut out in the second half.

Jeffery caught an 8-yard touchdown pass from Jay Cutler to give his team a 17-14 lead with four minutes remaining in the second quarter. He finished the half with three receptions for 30 yards, but was held to just one catch for nine yards thereafter.

He will seek more consistency and better overall production next Sunday against the Panthers.


Alshon Jeffery posts sixth career 100-yard game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery looked healthier Week 3 than he did Week 2. With his hamstring obviously improving, Jeffery caught eight passes for a game-high 105 yards and ran twice for 13 yards in the 27-19 win over the Jets.

Jeffery drew a game-high 13 targets and made critical third-down conversions. It was the sixth 100-yard receiving game of his career, the first five coming last season. Jeffery plays the Packers in Week 4.

Alshon Jeffery guts it out


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
