Eddie Royal - WRPosted 12/4/16 6:14am ET
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (toe) is expected to play in Week 13's game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Royal, who was listed as questionable on the injury report, did not practice at all this week but has been able to play through this injury for several games. However, he has not been very productive recently, so he should be avoided in all fantasy formats despite the favorable matchup.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 12/4/16 1:44pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for 117 yards and three touchdowns on 32 carries against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Howard has rushed for at least 100 yards in three of his last five games and his 32 carries were his most in a game this season. He will continue to be a main part of the offense for Chicago and should be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues.
Eddie Royal - WRPosted 12/2/16 11:36am ET
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (toe) has been listed as questionable for Week 13 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Almost all of Royal's tenure in Chicago has been accompanied with a questionable tag, which is a shame for a player who has shown flashes of being one of the better slot receivers in the league on the rare occasion when he stays healthy. Marquess Wilson is the Chicago receiver to own at the moment, although Deonte Thompson and Cameron Meredith should also be involved.
Eddie Royal - WRPosted 12/1/16 6:57pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 1.
Huddle Up: Royal has been playing through the injury, but he hasn't been productive. Avoid Royal against the 49ers in Week 13 and check to see if Marquess Wilson is available.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 11/27/16 7:08am ET
Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) has been declared out for Week 12's game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Cutler did not practice at all this week and had been listed as doubtful on the injury report. Matt Barkley will start under center for Chicago but is not a viable fantasy option.
Matt Barkley - QBPosted 11/27/16 7:01am ET
Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley will start Week 12's game against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Barkley should not be viewed as a viable option in any format and his presence under center is likely to negatively impact the fantasy value of all Chicago offensive players not named Jordan Howard. In addition, it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to stream the Tennessee defense.
Daniel Brown - TEPosted 11/27/16 4:49pm ET
Chicago Bears TE Daniel Brown posted three receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Tennessee Titans. He was targeted four times.
Huddle Up: Brown saw more targets and playing time with Zach Miller done for the season. Despite the score he isn't worth using outside of deeper standard fantasy leagues. DFS players might want to remember him, however.
Eddie Royal - WRPosted 11/27/16 4:49pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal had just one reception for minus-6 yards in the Week 12 game against the Tennessee Titans. That was his only target.
Huddle Up: Royal was expected to team with Cameron Meredith to help fill the void left by the suspension to Alshon Jeffery, but it has been Marquess Wilson, Deonte Thompson and Josh Bellamy seeing a bump in targets instead. Avoid Royal in fantasy leagues until he shows more consistency.
Josh Bellamy - WRPosted 11/27/16 4:48pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Josh Bellamy posted four grabs for 41 yards on nine targets in the Week 12 loss against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Bellamy is one of a handful of receivers stepping up to fill the void left by Alshon Jeffery, who is suspended two more games. Bellamy still has a whole to go before he can be trusted in fantasy football, but he has seen more of the field in recent weeks due to injuries and/or suspensions.
Cameron Meredith - WRPosted 11/27/16 4:47pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Cameron Meredith posted just two catches for 19 yards on nine targets in the Week 12 loss against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Meredith has had some highlight reel games this season, but Sunday was certainly not one of them. With Alshon Jeffery suspended, many felt Meredith could step up and fill the void. So far it has been Marquess Wilson, Deonte Thompson and Joshua Bellamy doing the work instead.
Deonte Thompson - WRPosted 11/27/16 4:46pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Deonte Thompson posted five receptions for 44 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in the Week 12 loss against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Thompson hasn't been on the field much this season, but he is getting a chance with several injuries to the Chicago offense. Still, he has a ways to go before he has much in the way of fantasy relevance.
Marquess Wilson - WRPosted 11/27/16 4:46pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson hauled in eight receptions for 125 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against Tennessee Titans. He was targeted 11 times.
Huddle Up: Wilson showed nice rapport with Matt Barkley, perhaps a player he worked with more in practice in the past. With the Chicago offense in flux due to a number of injuries, Wilson could be a solid fantasy option down the stretch. The opportunity is certainly there for playing time with Alshon Jeffery out two more games due to suspension, too.
Matt Barkley - QBPosted 11/26/16 6:08pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley has impressed the coaching staff with his poise and intelligence, but offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said it has been a challenge to build a game plan Barkley will be comfortable with for Week 12 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: As if making his first start of the year wasn't tough enough, Barkley will take over an offense missing several of its top offensive weapons. Avoid him in all formats and consider streaming Tennessee's defense.
Eddie Royal - WRPosted 11/25/16 6:49pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Friday, Nov. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Even if Royal suits up, he is a reach for fantasy owners with Matt Barkley expected to start at quarterback.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 11/25/16 6:45pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 25, and is listed as doubtful for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Matt Barkley is expected to start in place of Cutler, but he can be ignored by fantasy owners.
Marquess Wilson - WRPosted 11/25/16 7:01pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (foot) was a full participant in practice Friday, Nov. 25, and is not listed on the Week 12 injury report.
Huddle Up: A rash of injuries to Chicago's offense should have Wilson in a prominent role in Week 12, but he is still nothing more than a shot-in-the-dark play against the Titans.
Eddie Royal - WRPosted 11/24/16 6:24pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (toe) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: Even if Royal suits up, he is a risky flex play in PPR formats with Matt Barkley likely starting at quarterback for the Bears.
Jeremy Langford - RBPosted 11/24/16 6:20pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jeremy Langford (illness) returned to practice and was a full participant Thursday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: Langford should suit up against Tennessee in Week 12, but he is nothing more than handcuff for fantasy owners with Jordan Howard headlining Chicago's backfield.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 11/24/16 6:15pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: Cutler isn't likely to play in Week 12. Backup Matt Barkley is expected to start but should be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Marquess Wilson - WRPosted 11/24/16 6:29pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (foot) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.
Huddle Up: Injuries and Alshon Jeffery's suspension have opened the door for Wilson to take on a bigger role. However, he remains a reach for fantasy owners in Week 12 with Jay Cutler likely sidelined.
Matt Barkley - QBPosted 11/23/16 11:51am ET
Chicago Bears QB Matt Barkley will be the starting quarterback in Week 12 if QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) is ruled out.
Huddle Up: Barkley has limited experience in the NFL and should not be used in any fantasy leagues. He likely will also hurt the fantasy value of the Bears receivers if he starts, but Jordan Howard should be an attractive starting option.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 11/23/16 11:46am ET
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23, but head coach John Fox has not ruled Cutler out for Week 12. Fox said Cutler's injury is not season-ending and that Cutler is considered day-to-day.
Huddle Up: Cutler probably will not be able to play this week, but owners can check on his status later in the week. Matt Barkley would start if Cutler is ruled out but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 11/22/16 9:00am ET
Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (shoulder) is believed to have a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He's receiving a second opinion.
Huddle Up: It's unlikely he'll see the field again this season, and honestly, the team may just hold him out because he's not the future for them. Matt Barkley is expected to take over, but he has very little around him and isn't a good fantasy pickup.
Kevin White - WRPosted 11/21/16 8:11pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Kevin White (leg) will not come back from the Reserve/Injured list this season, according to beat writer Brad Biggs. He will go into his third NFL season in 2017 with 191 total snaps under his belt, or the equivalent of about three games through two pro seasons.
Huddle Up: White has plenty of potential, but he has not even come close to realizing it due to injuries derailing his first two seasons before they have even really gotten started.
Eddie Royal - WRPosted 11/20/16 7:29am ET
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (toe) is expected to play in Week 11's game against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Royal was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report, even though he played through the same injury last week. He should see an increase in targets as a result of Alshon Jeffery's four-game suspension getting underway and makes a decent flex option in PPR formats.
Eddie Royal - WRPosted 11/20/16 8:53am ET
Confirming a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (toe) is active for Week 11's game against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Royal should see an increase in targets this afternoon due to the absence of Alshon Jeffery, as he serves the first week of his four-game suspension. Royal should be viewed as a viable flex option in PPR fantasy formats.
Jay Cutler - QBPosted 11/20/16 2:32pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler threw for 252 yards on 17-of-30 passing on Sunday, Nov. 20, in a 22-16 loss to the New York Giants. Cutler threw one touchdown, but the Bears did not score in the second half.
Huddle Up: Cutler has been up and down in terms of efficiency, and this was not one of his better games. Your best bet is to look for another starter should you need one.
Eddie Royal - WRPosted 11/18/16 12:49pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (toe) is listed as questionable for the team's Week 11 game Sunday, Nov. 20, against the New York Giants. He was able to get in a limited practice Friday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: The injury-prone Royal is seemingly always questionable, and considering he was able to make it through last week's contest without incident, it would appear he's more likely than not to suit up for Week 11. With Alshon Jeffery beginning his four-game suspension this weekend, Royal could become somewhat of a useful commodity again, as he and Cameron Meredith should each receive a notable bump in targets. He could be especially sneaky for PPR formats.
Eddie Royal - WRPosted 11/17/16 12:34pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (toe) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: Royal should receive more targets with Alshon Jeffery suspended, which will help him in point-per-reception leagues. Royal can be a flex option in PPR leagues but probably would not be a great option in some standard leagues.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 11/16/16 2:07pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (ankle, Achilles') was not listed on the injury report for Wednesday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: Howard will play in Week 11, but how effective will he be? The New York Giants have been quietly good against the run this year and they could be honed in on Howard with Alshon Jeffery out. That being said, Howard should still be started as an RB2.
