Allen Robinson - WRPosted 7/19/18 10:19am ET
Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (knee) is 'full steam ahead' as the Bears commence training camp, according to head coach Matt Nagy.
Huddle Up: Don't expect the Bears to push Robinson too hard in his comeback from a torn ACL so as to avoid any setbacks or aggravations. Robinson begins a promising second start in what is still a young NFL career. As Chicago's No. 1 wide receiver in what will be a potentially improved offense, Robinson has low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 intrigue.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 7/16/18 9:19am ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard has rushed the ball 528 times over the last two seasons, which is the fifth-most rushes in the NFL during that span.
Huddle Up: Howard has rushed for at least 1,100 yards in each of his first two seasons and will continue to receive plenty of touches. He can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Mitchell Trubisky - QBPosted 7/12/18 4:45pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky has had 'the training wheels taken off,' according to OG Kyle Long, who added that Trubisky is 'going to be able to do some things creatively and get to showcase his skills' as a result.
Huddle Up: Part of that reasoning should also have to do with the Bears adding a new head coach who is also an offensive guru, Matt Nagy, and that can certainly open things up for Trubisky and the offense as a whole. The talented young quarterback figures to make a leap in his second year and may even vault up to QB1 value by the end of the campaign.
Anthony Miller - WRPosted 7/12/18 7:20pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller's ability to run routes that 'set the angle for the quarterback' made him stand out during the draft process, according to head coach Matt Nagy. 'Any time you can see a route that relates to what you do as an offense, you kind of tag that,' Nagy said.
Huddle Up: Miller is in the mix to open the year as the starting slot receiver. He could be worth a flier as a WR5 in redraft leagues, and he's a must-own rookie in dynasty formats.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 7/10/18 10:51am ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is expected to be the team's feature back per comments made by head coach Matt Nagy this spring, but Nagy also made it clear he plans to 'keep the door spinning' in the rotation, according to Dan Wiederer of The Chicago Tribune.
Huddle Up: Given the expected improvement in the Bears' passing game, Howard's rushing attempts will almost certainly decline from the 276 he had in 2017. This report is just further evidence Tarik Cohen is primed for a substantial role. With that said, Howard is the only 'big back' Chicago has and has proven to be a very good runner, so he's going to get the work at the goal line in what should be a much better offense this season. He may come with more volatility than usual, but he's still a solid RB2 option.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 7/8/18 7:39pm ET
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton could be second in the pecking order behind WR Allen Robinson for targets this year, in the opinion of Bryan Perez of CSNChicago.com.
Huddle Up: Burton unproven as a starter, but he has the potential for a big 2018 season. Draft him as a high-end TE2 with upside.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 7/7/18 1:31pm ET
The Chicago Bears expect WR Allen Robinson (knee) to be a full participant once training camp begins.
Huddle Up: Robinson is coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament, so owners will need to keep an eye on his status during the first few days of camp. He should be the main target in the passing game for the Bears and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver.
Mitchell Trubisky - QBPosted 7/5/18 5:21pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky has more command of the team going into his second year, according to RB Jordan Howard. 'He asserted himself a lot last year, but I definitely feel like a lot more people are listening to him,' Howard said. 'He has a lot greater command of the locker room and stuff because he's the quarterback for sure now.'
Huddle Up: Trubisky started 12 games last season as a rookie and that experience seems to have made him a lot more comfortable than not had he sat most of the campaign as some rookie quarterbacks tend to do. With new head coach Matt Nagy, who is highly regarded as an offensive play-caller, Trubisky could make the leap to QB1 in fantasy circles as soon as the coming year. He's a solid sleeper, at least.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 7/3/18 1:31am ET
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton sees himself as someone who can be a leader in his first year with the organization. 'I take a ton of pride in it,' Burton said. 'I'm not much of a vocal guy. I'm more of a one-on-one intimate type of communicator. I was a quarterback in high school. I had a great quarterbacks coach who taught me how to be a leader and how all the eyes are on you. Ever since then, I kind of ran with it.'
Huddle Up: Burton is slotted to play a wide receiver/tight end hybrid role in new head coach Matt Nagy's offense, which is quite significant considering that's the role Nagy deployed star tight end Travis Kelce in when he was Kansas City's offensive coordinator. As a result, Burton deserves serious consideration as someone who has the potential to be a monstrous sleeper at his position.
Mitchell Trubisky - QBPosted 7/2/18 10:33am ET
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky said the team plans to spread the field and use all of their offensive weapons under head coach Matt Nagy.
Huddle Up: Trubisky is coming off a decent rookie season but should be able to improve on his numbers this season with all of the changes the team made this offseason. He has a chance to be a No. 2 quarterback in deeper fantasy leagues.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 6/27/18 1:33pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen said he lined up at multiple positions during offseason workouts in head coach Matt Nagy's offensive scheme.
Huddle Up: It appears like Cohen will have a solid role on offense under Nagy. He posted 723 total yards in his rookie season and has a chance to improve on his stats. He can be a flex option in fantasy leagues and will be valuable in point-per-reception leagues.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 6/7/18 9:13am ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen's versatility gives the Bears a dynamic playmaker on offense. He will be used as a running back, wide receiver and even a pass-blocker. Head coach Matt Nagy said Cohen still has a lot to learn, but he has a lot to learn because Chicago plans on using him in a variety of ways. In addition to his running back duties, Cohen said he has lined up on the outside and in the slot as a receiver and has practiced on special teams. 'I feel like this is the offense for me.'
Huddle Up: Cohen's ceiling is stinted by Jordan Howard, but the small, shifty back can do a little bit of everything. He even threw a touchdown last year as a rookie. He possesses much more allure in PPR leagues where he should be considered a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3.
Kevin White - WRPosted 6/7/18 7:01pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Kevin White has been practicing with 'a lot of passion' during OTAs, according to QB Mitchell Trubisky, and Trubisky said the two have been communicating on an off the field.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners have been waiting on White to break out since his rookie year, but he hasn't been able to stay healthy, let alone produce. Feel free to make him a late-round lottery ticket, but you shouldn't have any expectations.
Kevin White - WRPosted 6/2/18 4:35am ET
Chicago Bears WR Kevin White is not a lock for the 53-man roster, even though he was a top-10 draft pick in 2015. Injuries have limited his effectiveness.
Huddle Up: Even if he makes the roster, there are many other options available with better health records than White, so for now consider him a wideout with little fantasy value.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 5/31/18 5:40pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard said that head coach Matt Nagy already deemed him 'the main guy,' but while he's proven he can be a traditional bell-cow running back, Nagy also mentioned that 'in this offense, it's more game specific as to whether or not you need that.'
Huddle Up: Howard's draft stock is tricky to project, as he is coming off a pair of real solid seasons but with his criticisms in the passing game in terms of dropping passes, that means backfield teammate Tarik Cohen should receive plenty of work as well. In other words, while Howard is a tempting RB2 option, he may have his weeks with very little production in the boxscore.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 5/30/18 11:36am ET
Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (knee) practiced Wednesday, May 30, for the first time since signing with Bears. Robinson is still working his way towards a full recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 1 last year.
Huddle Up: Robinson is an underrated fantasy asset in his first season with Chicago, as long as he's healthy. His injury history makes him more draftable as a low-end WR1 or high-end WR2 representing Mitchell Trubisky's No. 1 target.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 5/25/18 10:21am ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is working on some issues to help him become a better receiver out of the backfield, according to new running backs coach Charles London, who mentioned hand placement, focus and concentration and hand-eye coordination as some of the areas he is hoping to see improvement.
Huddle Up: The ability to contribute much as a receiver has been Howard's one fatal flaw when it comes to taking the next step and becoming a potential elite fantasy starter. With all the skill-position talent they now have on the roster, the Bears should be able to open things up for the running game, which should make the third-year back's job as easy as it has ever been. Even if he loses a few more snaps to Tarik Cohen, Howard is primed to enjoy the best fantasy season of his career in 2018.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 5/25/18 9:22pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen could 'no doubt' serve as the third-down back if he can prove to be a capable blocker, according to running backs coach Charles London.
Huddle Up: Cohen was able to deliver several explosive plays last year when given playing time, and if he can secure a steady role, he could be a flex option in PPR formats. Keep tabs on the situation throughout the summer.
Kevin White - WRPosted 5/24/18 7:47pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Kevin White said he isn't worried about his fifth-year option being declined and believes 'anything' is possible for him this season.
Huddle Up: White has been a monumental bust up to this point, and he's been unable to stay healthy enough to even take the field. He'll be no more than a Hail Mary pick in the final rounds of drafts.
Anthony Miller - WRPosted 5/23/18 8:18am ET
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller is earmarked to be the slot receiver in the offense.
Huddle Up: Miller is coming off a foot injury, and they'll be cautious with him in camp. He has a chance to be a buzzworthy WR5 flyer.
Adam Shaheen - TEPosted 5/17/18 6:18pm ET
Chicago Bears TE Adam Shaheen's skill set fits the offense, according to head coach Matt Nagy.
Huddle Up: The Bears signed Trey Burton in the offseason, and he figures to be the top option at tight end. Shaheen has great physical tools, but he remains a project and is only worth stashing in dynasty formats at this point.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 5/16/18 12:26pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (knee) is ahead of the game and looking good as he continues to recover from a torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered in Week 1 last year. Head coach Matt Nagy said the Bears feel good about Robinson's prognosis and that he won't need to be rushed back.
Huddle Up: Robinson is ready for a rebound season with a new team and a fresh start. He will immediately step in and serve as Mitch Trubisky's No. 1 target on an otherwise lackluster receiving corps. If Trubisky can improve and be consistent, Robinson has top 15 fantasy WR potential.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 5/16/18 8:33pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen is a player that head coach Matt Nagy is excited to work with this upcoming season. 'You see how he is in the meeting rooms ? he listens to the play and when he comes out here how serious he is and he knows how to have fun. He's a player that for me, you get giddy about,' Nagy said.
Huddle Up: Cohen should have a solid role in the offense and will be involved in the running and passing game in 2018. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in point-per-reception leagues and a possible flex option in standard leagues.
Anthony Miller - WRPosted 5/13/18 8:21pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller said he isn't afraid of the 'physical element' of the game and is a willing blocker in the running game.
Huddle Up: Contributing in the running game will certainly help Miller's chances of playing early, and the rookie could serve as the No. 3 receiver this year. He will be a late-round flier, at best, in redraft leagues, but he's an attractive option in keeper formats.
Anthony Miller - WRPosted 5/11/18 2:45pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (foot) will not participate in team drills during the rookie minicamp this week because he is coming off a foot injury. He has recovered from the injury, but the team wants to be cautious.
Huddle Up: Miller could be limited during offseason workouts but should be fine for training camp. He probably will serve as the No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for the Bears as a rookie and has a chance to be a late-round pick in deeper leagues. He will be a solid selection in keeper leagues.
Kevin White - WRPosted 5/2/18 11:24am ET
Chicago Bears WR Kevin White's fifth-year option will not be picked up, according to a source. White is set to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason.
Huddle Up: The Bears have no choice but to decline picking up White's option. He has played in five games over his first two seasons and is much too big of a risk to retain. For fantasy purposes, he is a late-round flier as Chicago's No. 2 wide receiver.
Cameron Meredith - WRPosted 4/24/18 3:01pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Cameron Meredith (knee) is recovering well and might be able to participate in minicamp, according to head coach Sean Payton.
Huddle Up: Meredith has promising prospects in one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL, but he'll have to stay on the field. If he can maintain good health he has WR3 upside.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 4/19/18 7:49am ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen has focused on improving his skills as a receiver and route running this offseason. Head coach Matt Nagy said the team plans to move him around and do different things with him.
Huddle Up: Cohen will be an interesting RB3 option in PPR formats, but he presents some uncertainty along with upside. Jordan Howard figures to see a large workload running the ball, which means Cohen could slip in drafts.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 4/18/18 11:23am ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen is up to 190 pounds after bulking up this offseason.
Huddle Up: Cohen is petite as far as NFL running backs are concerned, but he is as speedy and shifty as they come. He quickly came on to the scene in his rookie season, particularly in the passing game and on special teams. With Jordan Howard hogging most of the carries in Chicago, Cohen is a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 candidate in PPR formats.
Kevin White - WRPosted 4/18/18 1:31pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Kevin White (shoulder) is participating in minicamp this week as he continues in his recovery from a broken shoulder blade last year. Head coach Matt Nagy said White has looked sharp and healthy so far.
Huddle Up: There is a lot of pressure on White this season to stay healthy after playing in just five games over his first two years. Because of that extensive injury history, he is no more than a late-round dart throw.
