Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery was named to the Pro Bowl Thursday, Jan. 9, replacing Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (knee).
Huddle Up: Certainly no surprise here following Megatron's knee issues down the stretch. Nonetheless, it's a well-deserved honor for Jeffery, who tied for eighth among all fantasy wideouts with 185 points in his second season.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery hit the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career after posting 12 receptions for 249 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 13 game against the Minnesota Vikings. It was Jeffery's second 200-yard game of the season.
Huddle Up: Earlier this season Jeffery set the franchise record for receiving yards in a game; he then broke his own record with his performance in Week 13. He's playing his way into 1B status alongside 1A Brandon Marshall, with the very real possibility those roles could be reversed in the not-too-distant future.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle) was limited in practice Monday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Jeffery could use a light day on a short week after setting the Bears' franchise record -- and it's a franchise that dates back to 1920 -- for receiving yards in a game with 218 on 10 grabs Sunday vs. the Saints. Jeffery is tied for 7th among fantasy WRs with 61 points.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery had 10 receptions for 218 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the New Orleans Saints. He set the franchise record with the yardage mark. The previous mark was 214 yards set by WR Harlon Hill in 1954.
Huddle Up: Jeffery is developing into a real threat opposite Brandon Marshall. With Jeffery playing well, defenses will no longer be able to focus entirely on Marshall--which in turn will open things up for Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, Martellus Bennett, and the rest of the Chicago offense.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery has impressed his coaching staff and made vast improvements entering this season. "I'll say this about Alshon: He's really invested," receivers coach Mike Groh said. "I have seen improvement in the very short time I have been able to work with him. He certainly has tremendous potential."
Huddle Up: The Bears need someone to emerge opposite Brandon Marshall, and all signs point towards Jeffery being that guy. If the coaching staff has his back, it means Jeffery will be given a longer leash if he struggles out of the gate. Either way, Chicago's WR2 job is his to take and run with this year.

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) tweaked his hamstring running a deep pass route this past week. He was limited in practice Tuesday, June 11, but the injury is not believed to be serious and the team is just being cautious.
Huddle Up: Not the best of news for Jeffery, who had a promising rookie season cut to 10 games due to a knee injury. The good news is that the calendar still says it's June, giving the wideout plenty of time to get right.

Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said he expects WR Alshon Jeffery to start for the team this coming season.
Huddle Up: Like Brandon Marshall, Jeffery has the body type to be a perfect fit for Trestman's West Coast system. Makes sense for the duo to be on the field together, as Jeffery can capitalize on the single-coverage he's bound to see with defenses focused on Marshall.
