Shaheen missed much of last year because of a foot injury and concussion. He was limited to six games, catching five passes for 48 yards. Shaheen has 17 receptions in two NFL seasons. He is likely No. 2 or 3 on the depth chart this year for the Bears. Shaheen is a very big target with good strength and speed. Shaheen is a unique talent that is a handful to cover. He continues to make the transition from being a college basketball player and has a lot of work to do to be a consistent factor in the NFL. He continues to make strides every season.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Shaheen has not started his career as expected. He is not worth a draft pick just yet. Injuries are a concern as well as his sporadic playing time. He might see a slight uptick in production but not a ton. He could get around 25 receptions for 300 yards and a few scores.
Chicago Bears tight end Adam Shaheen will enter his third season carrying as much mystery tied to his potential as there was when he was drafted in the second round by the Bears in 2017. Two seasons in and the athletic tight end has only 17 receptions for 175 yards and four touchdowns in 19 career games. It was a tough sophomore campaign for the 6'6' product out of Ashland, as he battled countless injuries and caught multiple passes in only two games. When on the field Shaheen has shown an ability to present a mismatch in the red zone, an athletic talent with soft hands. But he also has struggled with his route running and once the ball is in his hands has shown a tendency to be an easy tackle in the open field. For a player Shaheen's size, this simply won't cut it. The Bears, under head coach Matt Nagy, have shown to display a creative offensive unit that puts player in different positions to succeed. But a lot will have to break right for Shaheen to even crack the regular rotation on offense. Expect Shaheen to head straight to waivers to begin the season and will need several, heavily-targeted performances to even become a blip on the fantasy radar.

Chicago Bears tight end Adam Shaheen caught one pass for seven yards in the Bears win over the Redskins in Week 3. Shaheen was featured early as the Bears flashed a lot of heavy formations on offense. But the athletic tight end seemed to disappear after making his only reception of the game.

Shaheen has little fantasy value but has the potential to catch a few short-yardage touchdowns in the red zone this season for the Bears,
Chicago Bears tight end Adam Shaheen caught three passes for 24 yards in the Bears comeback win over the Broncos in Week 2. The former second-round pick has the talent but has been a mercurial asset for the Bears in his career. But he made some nice receptions in this game, including one moment when he caught a pass, broke a tackle and picked up a big first down. Shaheen has struggled with injuries throughout his career so he will have to string a few more games together before he can even be considered for a roster spot in fantasy.
Chicago Bears tight end Adam Shaheen is still working his way up to full speed with three weeks until the regular season begins. The third-year tight end suffered a back injury early on in camp and has been slow to get back into the swing of things. Shaheen has excellent 50/50-ball talent and is a red zone threat but has struggled mightily staying healthy during his short career. The chances of Shaheen making an impact early on in the regular season are getting slimmer by the day.
Chicago Bears tight end Adam Shaheen is not expected to play in the team's second exhibition game against the Giants on Friday. Shaheen has been dealing with a back injury since the beginning of camp and has been slow to work his way back. Even if he is currently healthy, the Bears will not risk further injury to a player that has failed, thus far, to tap into his potential. The former second-round pick has struggled to stay on the field through the first two years of his career. Shaheen has talent but is not fantasy viable until he can prove to consistently be able to stay on the field.
