Zach Miller - TEPosted 10/30/17 6:03am ET
Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (knee) underwent emergency vascular surgery Sunday, Oct. 29, to repair artery damage in his left leg.
Huddle Up: His season is over. The hope and thoughts at this point are that he can walk again.
Zach Miller - TEPosted 10/30/17 11:16am ET
Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (knee) underwent successful vascular surgery on a torn popliteal artery Monday, Oct. 30. Miller will stay at the hospital to undergo further evaluation.
Huddle Up: It's encouraging news for Miller, but his season is likely over and his career could be too. Dion Sims and Adam Shaheen will try to fill in for Miller. Sims is the better pickup right now after catching three passes for 15 yards on five targets in Week 8.
Zach Miller - TEPosted 10/29/17 12:17pm ET
Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (leg) was carted off the field after suffering a serious leg injury during the team's Week 8 game.
Huddle Up: Miller could miss the rest of the season depending on the severity of the injury. Owners should know more about his condition in the next few days but may want to look to add a tight end on the waiver wire. Dion Sims and Adam Shaheen will receive more playing time but neither is a great fantasy option.
Mitchell Trubisky - QBPosted 10/29/17 2:15pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky went 14-for-32 for 164 yards and one interception against the New Orleans Saints in Week 8. He also rushed for 53 yards on three carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Tribusky still has not thrown for more than 165 yards in any game this season and has two touchdowns and two interceptions in his four starts. He has some value in keeper leagues but can be avoided in most standard leagues.
Kendall Wright - WRPosted 10/29/17 2:37pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright caught two passes for 23 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Wright was targeted eight times against the Saints but finished with only two catches. He should continue to be a starting receiver for the Bears but would only be a flex option in deeper leagues against certain opponents.
Tre McBride - WRPosted 10/29/17 2:34pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Tre McBride caught three passes for 92 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 8.
Huddle Up: McBride appeared to have a good chemistry with Mitchell Trubisky during the game and could be more involved in the passing game moving forward. He can be avoided in all leagues at this point but could be a waiver wire option if he continues to produce.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 10/29/17 2:33pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed for two yards and one touchdown on four carries against the New Orleans Saints in Week 8. He also caught one pass for six yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Cohen has seen a drop in his workload lately and has posted only six touches in the last two games. He should still be involved in the running and passing game but would only be a flex option in Week 10.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 10/29/17 2:26pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed for 102 yards on 23 carries against the New Orleans Saints in Week 8. He also caught three passes for 19 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Howard has rushed for at least 100 yards in two of his last three games and has received at least 21 carries in each of those three games. He can be a solid No. 2 running back when he faces the Green Bay Packers in Week 10.
Zach Miller - TEPosted 10/29/17 7:45pm ET
Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller (knee) was taken to the hospital after the Week 8 game against the New Orleans Saints after suffering a dislocated left knee.
Huddle Up: To make matters worse for fantasy owners, he appeared to have a touchdown on the play, but replay review found he did not maintain possession and the score was taking away. That was literally insult to injury. It appears Miller is likely done for the remainder of the season, as the Chicago pass attack loses yet another weapon.
Dontrelle Inman - WRPosted 10/27/17 12:51pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Dontrelle Inman (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.
Huddle Up: Inman could be active for the Week 8 game but he probably would see limited targets since he is still learning the offense. Inman should be avoided this week, but he could be a valuable option in a few weeks.
Tanner Gentry - WRPosted 10/22/17 2:49pm ET
Chicago Bears WR Tanner Gentry had one reception for eight yards in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Gentry isn't really a fantasy target, but he was the only wide receiver to get on the board. In fact, Chicago wide receivers have just three total receptions over the past two games. That tells you all you need to know about the appeal of the Chicago pass offense from a fantasy perspective.
Zach Miller - TEPosted 10/22/17 2:48pm ET
Chicago Bears TE Zach Miller hauled in two catches for 29 yards on three targets in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Miller failed to score for the first time in three games, but he was about the only pass catcher who did anything of note in Chicago on a day they used a heavy run attack with just seven pass attempts. Despite the poor results, Miller is still a low-end TE1 target heading into Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints.
Tarik Cohen - RBPosted 10/22/17 2:48pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen had just one touch in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers and it was good for a 70-yard reception.
Huddle Up: The Bears used a run-heavy attack against the Panthers, and that meant a steady diet of Jordan Howard, but they really need to find a way to get the ball into the exciting rookie's hands more. When he has touched the ball he has made plenty of big plays this season.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 10/22/17 2:47pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard rushed 21 times for 65 yards in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: Howard was the biggest beneficiary of the team's run-heavy attack in a game which didn't feature very many fantasy stars. He'll look to return to the end zone in Week 8 on the road against the Saints.
Mitchell Trubisky - QBPosted 10/22/17 2:47pm ET
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed four of his seven pass attempts for 107 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: The Bears used a run-heavy offense with very few passes, although Trubisky did hook up with fellow rookie Tarik Cohen for a 70-yard pass and catch for the biggest offensive highlight of the game. Trubisky is a fantasy risk heading into Week 8 even with what should be a favorable matchup against the New Orleans Saints.
Jordan Howard - RBPosted 10/21/17 8:47pm ET
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard has rushed a combined 55 times for 243 yards in the two games QB Mitchell Trubisky has started.
Huddle Up: After an uneven start to the year, Howard has resumed his role as a workhorse back. Having Trubisky at quarterback should ensure that the Bears continue to lean on Howard going forward. Consider him a volume-based RB2 against a solid Carolina Panthers defense in Week 7.
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.
