2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Chicago Bears
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Bears just missed out winning the division last season, so they have a pretty good shot at a return to the playoffs. Chicago will need their defense to play better, though. If that happens, this team can make the playoffs and make a run. Their offense should be very good with three of the top offensive players in the game (Alshon Jeffery, Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte). The defense is the wild card, though, after a few down seasons compared to past years. They need to get better on that side of the ball to take another step forward this season.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
We don't think he'll have a huge season but receiver Marquess Wilson should produce some big games along the way as the No. 3 receiver for the Bears. He'll get a lot me playing time this season. He won't be consistent for fantasy teams but an option in the right matchup. Wilson can get around 700 yards and five touchdowns. He is a big-play threat with the ball in his hands.
FANTASY DUD
Tight end Martellus Bennett had a career season last year but might have a hard time matching those numbers. He has more to compete with for targets (three solid receivers), so he'll have some inconsistent weeks. Bennett scored just once touchdowns the last nine games of last season and had less than 50 yards seven of the last 10 games. His finish to the season is a pretty good indication of his role in the offense going forward.

Team Notes

Sep 19, 08:22 AM Free-agent WR Lavelle Hawkins (Buccaneers) and FS Derrick Martin (Bears) worked out for the Chicago Bears recently.
Sep 18, 06:02 PM Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Impact: This is better than last week. He should play again this week.
Sep 18, 06:02 PM Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Impact: Marshall would see to have a decent shot to play again this week after following a similar path last week.
Sep 18, 05:52 PM Chicago Bears DE Jared Allen (back), C Roberto Garza (ankle), CB Sherrick McManis (quadriceps), DT Jeremiah Ratliff (concussion), DE Trevor Scott (foot) and OG Matt Slauson (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 18. S Chris Conte (shoulder) and LB Shea McClellin (quadriceps) were limited, while WR Josh Morgan (groin) practiced in full.
Sep 17, 03:43 AM With an injury to LB Mason Foster, rumors have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pursuing free agent LB Brian Urlacher (Bears). Urlacher resigned Tuesday, Sept. 16, from his Fox Sports 1 analysis job, fueling the speculation. Sources say a signing, if one happens at all, would not occur this week.
Sep 16, 06:33 PM Chicago Bears CB Isaiah Frey and WR Rashad Ross were signed from the practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 16.
Sep 16, 06:23 PM The Chicago Bears released TE Matthew Mulligan Tuesday, Sept. 16.
Sep 16, 06:23 PM The Chicago Bears placed RB Shaun Draughn and WR Chris X. Williams on no-recall waivers Tuesday, Sept. 16.
Sep 15, 06:32 PM The Chicago Bears signed free-agent QB David Fales (Bears) to their practice squad Monday, Sept. 15.
Sep 15, 06:32 PM The Chicago Bears re-signed free-agent FB Tony Fiammetta Monday, Sept. 15. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Sep 15, 05:52 PM Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman (triceps) was officially placed on Reserve/Injured Monday, Sept. 15. He is out for the season.
Sep 15, 03:32 PM Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman (triceps) will likely be placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured, according to a source.

Fantasy Impact: This is a huge loss for the defense. He is the top corner on the team.
Sep 14, 11:52 PM Updating a previous report, not only did Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers, he scored three touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: Marshall is a must start as long as he is active. This performance proved that theory well.
Sep 14, 11:52 PM Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) played in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers, and he was held to three receptions and 47 yards with no scores.

Fantasy Impact: He wasn't 100 percent but played and made some plays. He should get healthier going forward.
Sep 14, 11:32 PM Chicago Bears DT Jeremiah Ratliff (concussion) suffered a concussion in the second half of the Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers and will not return.
Sep 14, 10:52 PM Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman (triceps) left the Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers due to a right triceps injury and he will not return.
