Jordan Howard - RBPosted 10/15/17 2:33pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for 167 yards on 36 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Howard has rushed for at least 100 yards in two of the last four games and has three touchdowns in that span. He will be facing a solid Carolina Panthers defense next week but can be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues.
Mitchell Trubisky - QBPosted 10/15/17 2:24pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky went 8-for-16 for 113 yards and one touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Trubisky has not thrown for more than 128 yards in either of his starts this season and has two touchdowns and one interception during that span. He can be owned in keeper leagues but should be avoided in all other leagues.
Zach Miller - TEPosted 10/15/17 2:48pm ET
Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller caught two passes for 25 yards and one touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Miller has caught a touchdown in each of the last two games but has not posted 50 yards in any games this season. He can be a No. 2 tight end in most leagues but is not a great starting option.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 10/15/17 2:39pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed for 32 yards on 14 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6. He also caught one pass for 14 yards and also threw a 21-yard touchdown pass during the game.
Huddle Up: Cohen appears to be the No. 2 running back for the Bears and will be involved in the running and passing game. He can be considered a flex option in deeper leagues against favorable matchups.
Markus Wheaton - WRPosted 10/12/17 3:31pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (groin) has a tear in his groin and could miss four to six weeks, according to league sources.
Huddle Up: No fantasy team should really be affected by this, as Wheaton is better off avoiding even when he's 100 percent healthy. Of course, that seemingly hasn't been the case in years, which might be one reason why he's racked up just one catch in three games this season. Even in the deepest leagues, there are better options to dig up.
Mitchell Trubisky - QBPosted 10/9/17 8:58pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 12 of 25 passes for 128 yards with one touchdown and one interception in his first career start Monday, Oct. 9, against the Minnesota Vikings. He also added 22 rushing yards on three carries.
Huddle Up: The numbers don't tell the full story, as Trubisky actually looked pretty good here and exhibited many of the tools that will have him being a hot fantasy commodity in the future. However, at this point in time, he's probably more of an option for two-quarterback formats, as the depth around him is just too thin for a rookie to sustain any consistent solid play. He should still be fun to watch, though, no matter what.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 10/9/17 9:00pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard registered 19 carries for 76 yards in the team's Week 5 game Monday, Oct. 9, opposite the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: The rush attempts and yards were each the second-most logged by Howard in a game this season, so while it may have been unspectacular, it also wasn't a bad effort from the former fifth-round draft pick either. It's also worth noting that Howard wasn't targeted in the passing game -- with Tarik Cohen garnering only one throw his way -- in Mitchell Trubisky's first career start, so owners may have to eat a decrease in his receiving numbers with the rookie under center.
Zach Miller - TEPosted 10/9/17 9:12pm ET
Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller hauled in three of his seven targets for 39 yards and his first touchdown of the season in the team's Week 5 game Monday, Oct. 9, against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: The good news from this, aside from Miller finding the end zone for the first time, is that he was the most-targeted option on the Bears in quarterback Mitchell Trubisky's debut. That bodes well for his prospects moving forward if the rookie is constantly looking his way, and there's a good chance that trend will continue given Chicago's woeful lack of depth at receiver.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 10/9/17 9:17pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen finished with just 13 rushing yards on six carries, while adding negative-one receiving yards on his only reception Monday, Oct. 9, versus the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Uh oh, this is a troubling development for the 22-year-old. With fellow rookie Mitchell Trubisky making his first career start under center, Cohen had a total of just one target after averaging seven targets per game when Mike Glennon was starting in the first four games. In addition, third-stringer Benny Cunningham got nearly as many snaps as Cohen did. Any way you look at it, Cohen's usefulness in basically any format is quickly running out.
Mitchell Trubisky - QBPosted 10/2/17 7:35am ET
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky will take over as the starting quarterback in Week 5 against the Minnesota Vikings, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Trubisky doesn't have a lot to throw to and is a much better dynasty asset than in single-year leagues. He's worth a speculative QB2 pickup, but expectations should be tempered.
Mike Glennon - QBPosted 9/30/17 8:23pm ET
Chicago Bears head coach John Fox said he would 'evaluate everything,' including QB Mike Glennon, ahead of the Week 5 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Glennon didn't do himself any favors with a disastrous Week 4 outing, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see Mitchell Trubisky have a chance to start. Even if he is given the reins to the offense, Trubisky wouldn't need to be owned outside of keeper leagues.
Mike Glennon - QBPosted 9/28/17 9:33pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon completed 21 of 33 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football. He also turned the ball over four times, throwing two interceptions and losing a pair of fumbles.
Huddle Up: With 11 days before their next game it seems like a prime opportunity for the Bears to make the switch from Glennon to Mitchell Trubisky. It wasn't all Glennon's fault -- his receivers left some plays on the field, and his second fumble was squarely on the center -- but his interceptions were terrible. If you've been carrying Glennon on your roster for some reason you shouldn't do it any longer.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 9/28/17 10:01pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen accounted for 48 total yards (24 rushing, 24 receiving) during the team's loss to the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: After topping 100 total yards in two of his first three NFL games, Cohen couldn't even reach half that number on TNF. It's the same risk that's come with playing the likes of Darren Sproles and Danny Woodhead over the years in that you're counting on someone to do a lot in limited opportunities. As such, Cohen is best deployed as an RB3 or flex option.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 9/28/17 9:49pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard carried the ball 18 times for 53 yards and a score in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers. He added two receptions for 10 yards.
Huddle Up: Howard found pay dirt in garbage time to salvage his stat line, but the 2.9 yards carry tell the story of how he was bottled up for most of the game (and for the third time in four weeks this season). A potentially tough matchup with the Vikings is on tap, but he remains a viable RB2 with hope that the 'mini-bye' will help the Bears clean up some of their issues on offense.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 9/28/17 10:22pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright tallied four receptions, 51 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Wright caught all four of his targeted passes and led the team in receiving yards while grabbing the lone touchdown strike from Mike Glennon. It was a bit of a bounce back after the goose egg he posted in Week 3, but Wright has minimal value outside of deep formats.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 9/25/17 11:19am ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard was not listed on the team's Week 4 injury report in advance of its game against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: A Monday injury report for Thursday games is a speculative one since teams don't practice the day after a game, but the reason this is notable is because Howard is known to have a shoulder injury and was seen favoring it Sunday. The most likely explanation is head coach John Fox's reputation for treating injury reports like state secrets and sometimes not being entirely honest with them. Despite Howard's Week 3 outburst, continue to treat him like a less-than-100-percent RB2 for now.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 9/24/17 7:05am ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) has been playing with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Howard is expected to play in Week 3 but likely will continue to share snaps with Tarik Cohen. He will be facing a solid Pittsburgh Steelers run defense this week and may not be more than a flex option.
Markus Wheaton - WRPosted 9/24/17 5:05pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (finger) was targeted twice in his season debut in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, his former team, but he had no catches.
Huddle Up: Wheaton was making his team debut and he has opportunity in Chicago with Cameron Meredith and Kevin White done for the season, leaving the wideout picture wide open. However, it might take time to get used to his new surroundings, so file his name away for fantasy consideration later.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 9/24/17 5:05pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright did not have any receptions or targets in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: It was an ugly performance for all Chicago wide receivers, and Wright has been unable to do anything despite a golden opportunity with Cameron Meredith and Kevin White done for the season with injuries. You can safely drop Wright from all fantasy rosters if you were depending on him previously.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 9/24/17 5:04pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen posted 12 rushes for 78 yards in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he added four receptions for 24 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Cohen total 16 touches to 28 for Jordan Howard, who had a monster game in the overtime win. The rookie still had a very productive afternoon for his fantasy owners, but they have to be a little concerned that Howard re-emerged and had such a giant stat line. Temper expectations for Cohen heading into Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night, although he is still a very nice PPR option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 9/24/17 5:04pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard posted 23 carries for 138 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, including the game-winner in overtime, and he added five grabs for a team-high 26 yards.
Huddle Up: Howard was banged up last week and he shared the wealth with rookie Tarik Cohen in Week 1. This is the Howard fantasy owners have wanted to see, and it came against a strong defense. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.
Mike Glennon - QBPosted 9/24/17 5:03pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon completed 15 of his 22 pass attempts for 101 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 3 overtime win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Glennon didn't do anything statistically, but his team picked up the win. He is still not cemented as the starting quarterback in Chicago and his fantasy value is rather minimal heading into Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 9/22/17 12:57pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Wright has become the team's No. 1 receiver and is coming off a solid Week 2 performance when he caught seven passes for 69 yards. He will be facing a good Pittsburgh Steelers defense this week and could be benched if owners have better options to use.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 9/22/17 1:07pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Howard was limited to seven rushing yards in Week 2 and will continue to share work with Tarik Cohen at running back. He will be facing a solid Pittsburgh Steelers defense and could be benched if owners have better options available.
Zach Miller - TEPosted 9/22/17 12:59pm ET
Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (non-injury) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Miller has been targeted 15 times in the first two games and should continue to be a solid option in the passing game for the Bears. Miller should be owned in most fantasy leagues but can be left on the bench this week.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 9/21/17 2:44pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.
Huddle Up: Wright is off to somewhat of a slow start even with both Cameron Meredith and Kevin White sidelined for the year. He did catch seven passes for 69 yards last week, though, so don't completely disregard him as a flex consideration.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 9/21/17 2:39pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.
Huddle Up: Howard has struggled through the first two games of his sophomore campaign. You can't really sit him, but expectations need to be tempered due to his struggles and the emergence of rookie Tarik Cohen.
Zach Miller - TEPosted 9/21/17 2:35pm ET
Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (non-injury related) missed practice Thursday, Sept. 21.
Huddle Up: This was probably simply a rest day for the Bears' tight end. He'll be on the field and is worth a look as a low-end TE1 to high-end TE2 after seeing 15 targets through the season's first couple outings.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 9/20/17 3:32pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday, Sept. 20.
Huddle Up: Howard had a disastrous Week 2, posting just seven yards on nine carries and he was unable to record a catch on his only target. The good news is that rookie Tarik Cohen ran for just 13 yards on seven rushes and he lost a fumble, although he did grab eight balls for 55 yards. Howard is dinged up, not doing a lot and he has Cohen to contend with. His fantasy star isn't as bright as it was in 2016. Suddenly he is a questionable fantasy play heading into Week 3 against the Steelers.
Markus Wheaton - WRPosted 9/20/17 4:15pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Markus Wheaton (finger) said Wednesday, Sept. 20, that he is hopeful of making his team debut in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Wheaton has been inactive for the first two games due to a broken pinkie, but he is likely to push hard to return to face his former team. The Bears have a mish-mash group of receivers, so Wheaton has opportunity in the Windy City. But for now his fantasy value is rather negligible.
