Allen Robinson - WRPosted 6/21/19 9:45am ET
Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson was the team's highest-graded offensive player in 2018 at 77.7, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: While playing in 13 games, Robinson led the Bears in targets (94) and produced a 55-754-4 receiving stat line in his first season in the Windy City. He looks to be QB Mitch Trubisky's top weapon and should be valued as a WR3 in drafts this summer.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 6/20/19 10:49am ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen is expecting to maintain his role as the team's change-of-pace back this season despite an overhaul with the rest of the Bears' backfield. 'I feel like I'm going to be doing the same things I was doing last year,' Cohen told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Thursday, June 20. 'My role is not going to change. I still have to be the receiving back, come in be the change of pace back, running the ball, be that speedy guy. I'm just prepared for anything however I get the ball.'
Huddle Up: Cohen totaled 1,169 yards and eight TDs on 170 touches last season which ranked 11th among backs in PPR scoring and 17th in standard. He has RB2 PPR value if your league mates are too high on rookie David Montgomery.
Daniel Brown - TEPosted 6/14/19 7:27am ET
New York Jets TE Daniel Brown, normally a blocking tight end, has impressed with his ability as a receiver. Brown has displayed more downfield speed than expected.
Huddle Up: Chris Herndon could be facing discipline after pleading guilty to a DUI in January, and Brown has an opening early in the season. Target him as a mid-to-low TE2 with upside.
David Montgomery - RBPosted 6/13/19 9:52am ET
Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery has impressed in minicamp with his pass-catching skills, 'He's making plays,' Bears head coach Matt Nagy said. 'We always knew he had great hands. You don't know how great of a route runner a college back is, but he's a really good route runner.'
Huddle Up: Montgomery already is the second-most coveted rookie RB in fantasy, ranking only behind the Raiders' Josh Jacobs, and he's a solid RB3 pick in all non-dynasty drafts.
David Montgomery - RBPosted 6/13/19 5:02pm ET
Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery signed his rookie contract Thursday, June 13, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Huddle Up: Montgomery currently projects behind Tarik Cohen and free-agent addition Mike Davis (Seahawks) on the Bears' depth chart. Montgomery could quickly rise to the top as the replacement for Jordan Howard (Eagles) on the ground. The rookie rushed for 1,216 yards and 13 touchdowns in his final year at Iowa State last season. He's a strong selection as a RB2.
David Montgomery - RBPosted 6/7/19 3:24pm ET
Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery should have the chance to earn a solid role in the offense during his rookie season, in the opinion of The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs.
Huddle Up: Tarik Cohen is expected to be the starting running back for the Bears this season, but fantasy players should monitor Montgomery's progress during the preseason. Montgomery will be a solid pick in keeper leagues and could also have value in standard leagues.
Riley Ridley - WRPosted 6/5/19 11:57pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Riley Ridley is unlikely to play much as a rookie, in the opinion of the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, who writes that Ridley's best-case scenario for 2019 is likely a 'small role in a rotation at wide receiver.'
Huddle Up: This isn't surprising, but it's still a good time to reiterate that Riley Ridley isn't his brother, and even though he's thought to be fairly polished the Bears have a lot of weapons in place and are a team looking to contend this season. That's not the formula for unexpected rookie production. Keep the younger Ridley restricted to dynasty formats.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 5/29/19 12:10pm ET
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) will not participate in the offseason workouts because he is recovering from sports hernia surgery he had a few months ago. The team hopes he will be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Burton is coming off a season where he posted 569 yards and six touchdowns. He should see a solid amount of targets in 2019 and could be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.
Riley Ridley - WRPosted 5/13/19 4:32pm ET
Chicago Bears fourth-round draft choice WR Riley Ridley signed a four-year contract with the Bears Monday, May 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Ridley likely will compete for playing time during training camp but will be behind Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller on the depth chart. He should be selected in keeper leagues but could be avoided in standard leagues.
David Montgomery - RBPosted 5/10/19 8:00pm ET
Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery could become a 'three-down back' for the offense, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Tarik Cohen is going to have a role in the passing game, but Montgomery has the size and the hands to be an every-down back. He's a first-round candidate in rookie drafts and has RB2 upside as a rookie.
David Montgomery - RBPosted 5/7/19 2:07am ET
Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery feels he can be an impact player catching balls out of the backfield. 'I'm very confident in myself as far as catching the ball,' Montgomery said. 'I think I catch the ball well. I played quarterback in high school, so I was catching the ball every play we ran out of the gun, so I got used to it over time.'
Huddle Up: Montgomery could see plenty of touches in the Chicago backfield in 2019, perhaps splitting time with Tarik Cohen. If he works on his hand and is as good as he is confident, he could be quite a solid fantasy option in PPR formats.
David Montgomery - RBPosted 4/26/19 7:02pm ET
Iowa State RB David Montgomery was selected by the Chicago Bears with the 73rd overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: With Jordan Howard out of the picture, Montgomery has a great chance to become Chicago's between-the-tackles back. He is worth considering in the first-round of rookie drafts, and flex production isn't out of the question.
Zach Miller - TEPosted 4/9/19 11:12am ET
Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (knee) has yet to make a decision on his football future, although he did say that decision would come soon. Miller suffered a devastating knee injury in 2017 for which he had emergency surgery.
Huddle Up: Miller has been productive in his career, but he's coming off a serious injury and will turn 34 years old this season. For now, Trey Burton remains in the TE1 conversation after a career year in his first stint with the Bears.
Anthony Miller - WRPosted 4/5/19 11:45pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) said Friday, April 5 that he painfully dislocated his left shoulder 'maybe five or six times' during his rookie season. He had surgery to repair a torn labrum in January, and he has been rehabbing at his alma mater at the University of Memphis. He doesn' expected to practice much in the offseason until he is fully healed.
Huddle Up: Miller is determined to take a big step forward in his second NFL season, and he could be quite the sleeper in the the middle to late rounds on draft day. His rehab is reportedly going well, and he should be able to surpass the 33 catches, 423 yards and seven touchdowns he posted in 2018.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 3/29/19 9:25am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard has been knocked for a perceived deficiency on runs out of the shotgun formation, but 2018's stats don't back that up. Last season, Howard rushed 138 times for 570 yards (4.13 yards per carry) out of the shotgun and ran 111 times for 364 yards (3.28 ypc) when the quarterback was under center.
Huddle Up: Howard will be fine running out of any formation, but of more concern to his fantasy value is the Eagles' recent tradition of rotating multiple backs. Put him down as a solid RB3 for now with definite RB2 potential.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 3/28/19 5:38pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, March 28, in exchange for a 2020 sixth round draft choice, according to a source. The draft choice has a chance to become a fifth-round draft choice based on undisclosed conditions.
Huddle Up: The Bears have Tarik Cohen and Mike Davis as their main running backs at this point, but they likely will look to add another running back in free agency or the 2019 Draft. Owners will need to monitor the situation, but Cohen and Davis should have fantasy value in 2019.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 3/28/19 5:27pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard was acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, March 28, in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round draft choice, according to a source. The draft choice has a chance to become a fifth-round draft choice based on undisclosed conditions.
Huddle Up: Howard should take over the starting running back job for the Eagles but likely will share playing time with the other running backs on the roster. He has posted solid numbers over the past few seasons and could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 3/26/19 1:44pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard still has a role with the Bears, but he could still be traded nonetheless, according to head coach Matt Nagy.
Huddle Up: Trade talk involving Howard has waned recently, but he's seemingly not as valuable to Chicago's offense as his counterpart Tarik Cohen. It's not that Howard has necessarily under performed. He's scored 25 total times and averaged over 1,312 yards in his first three seasons. He's a solid standard RB2 assuming he stays in Chicago.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 3/21/19 6:39pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is unlikely to have a role in the offense if he remains with the team in 2019, in the opinion of Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.
Huddle Up: Howard has always struggled to make an impact in the passing game, and after regressing as a between-the-tackles runner last year, the Bears don't have much incentive to feature him in the offense. Feel free to take a flier on him in the final rounds of drafts, but don't count on him to be a contributor for your fantasy squad.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 3/7/19 10:48am ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is the subject of ongoing trade discussions as of Thursday, March 7, per league sources, after multiple teams approached the Bears at the NFL Scouting Combine to inquire about a possible deal.
Huddle Up: Howard has been a top-10 fantasy back in all three of his seasons in Chicago, but last year he hit career season lows in rushing yards (935), touches (270) and scrimmage yards (1,080) while matching his 2017 total of nine TDs. He'll likely still be involved in a RB split if he's traded, but he'll be a RB2 consideration regardless given his nose for the end zone (25 TDs in three seasons).
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 2/27/19 4:54pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is reportedly on the trade block, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.
Huddle Up: After initially seeing more work in the passing game than he ever did his first two seasons, Howard became more of a glorified early-down and goal-line pounder as 2018 progressed. He did pick up the pace as the season came to an end, but he's still a one-dimensional running back playing for a coach in Matt Nagy who wants his runners to contribute in all areas. If he is traded this spring, he'll likely bring back a Day 3 pick.
Anthony Miller - WRPosted 2/27/19 10:36pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) might not be 100 percent until training camp after undergoing surgery in January to fix his injured left shoulder. General manager Ryan Pace said Miller 'could be limited' in organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp this spring.
Huddle Up: It sounds like there is no worry of Miller being ready for the season, but they might hold him out of OTAs and minicamp. Fantasy owners wouldn't mind that, as he would be preserved for training camp and the preseason. Miller managed seven TDs in 2018, and he might be a nice late-round pick in many drafts later this summer if he gets back to 100 percent.
Allen Robinson - WRPosted 2/3/19 6:04pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson saw eight or more targets in two of his first nine games in 2018 but was targeted eight or more times in three of the last four regular season games. He also saw 13 targets in the playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Robinson underwhelmed in his first year in Chicago, finishing with 55 catches for 754 yards and four scores. However, the solid finish gives fantasy owners reason to be optimistic, and he will still be the No. 1 option in the Chicago passing attack. Robinson could be an underrated WR3 in 2019.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 1/16/19 9:58pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard holds little value if the team decides to shop him around during the offseason, according to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, who points out Howard is in the final year of his rookie deal and that running back is one of the NFL's most replaceable positions. Biggs believes Howard's greatest value in 2019 would be as depth for the Bears.
Huddle Up: While Howard's nine TDs were nice, his deficiencies in the passing game made him a less-than-ideal fit in Matt Nagy's offense, and it seems his days in the Windy City are numbered despite logging 250 carries last year. With his yardage and yards per carry dropping every year, Howard's value entering next season remains in flux.
Anthony Miller - WRPosted 1/16/19 10:06pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) should not miss significant time during the offseason following his upcoming shoulder surgery, according to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, who believes Miller will be ready to go at or near the start of the team's offseason program.
Huddle Up: Biggs also mentioned he thought Miller could double his receptions and receiving yards in Year 2, which would put him in the neighborhood of 70 catches and 900 yards -- solid production assuming he continues to make things happen in the red zone. There's more upside with Miller than anyone else in the Bears receiving group, and he could emerge as a legit weekly starter if he continues to develop.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 1/7/19 10:48pm ET
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) said Monday, Jan. 7, that he missed the club's Wild Card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 6, after he 'started to feel something' in his groin following practice Friday, Jan. 4, despite initially having no limitations. By Saturday, Jan. 5, it had 'locked up,' which he said was his 'body's way of handling threats' to his health.
Huddle Up: Burton's presence was sorely missed against the Eagles, as Bears tight ends only managed to combine for five catches for 28 yards in his absence. The 27-year-old is coming off a solid debut campaign in Chicago in which he posted career highs across the board, recording 54 catches for 569 yards and six touchdowns. He's firmly in the TE1 picture going into drafts next year.
Trey Burton - TEPosted 1/6/19 11:18am ET
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) will be a game-time decision Sunday, Jan. 6, after being added to the injury report the previous day with a groin injury.
Huddle Up: Injuries that crop up late week seldom turn out well, and second-year TE Adam Shaheen suddenly could find himself with a larger role if Burton can't go against his former team.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 1/6/19 5:25pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed once for no gain and he had three grabs for 27 yards on five targets in the NFC Wild Card Game playoff loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Cohen ended the regular season with 444 rushing yards while adding 71 grabs, 725 yards and five touchdowns through the air, and he was also a force in the return game at times. He has also not missed a game over his first two NFL seasons. Cohen will be a popular choice in PPR fantasy leagues in 2019 for his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and grab huge chunks of yardage after doing so.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 1/6/19 5:22pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 10 times for just 35 yards in the NFC Wild Card Game playoff loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Howard ran for just 935 yards and 3.7 yards per carry, both career lows after eclipsing the 1,100-yard mark in each of his first two seasons. He tied a career high with nine rushing scores, however, and remains one of the most durable backs with 47 out of a possible 48 games played in his first three NFL seasons. He'll once again be a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in 2019.
Mitchell Trubisky - QBPosted 1/6/19 4:39pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 26-of-43 passes for 303 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the NFC Wild Card playoff game loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Trubisky finished the 2018 regular season with 3,223 passing yards, 24 touchdowns, 12 interceptions and a 95.4 QB Rating. He will enter the 2019 NFL season as a low-end QB1 fantasy target with plenty of upside, especially if Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller can take another step forward.
