|At long last, the Bears decided to revitalize their wide receiver depth chart in the offseason and Jeffery was part of the equation, with Chicago grabbing him in the second round of this year’s draft. Maturity issues, poor quarterback play and too much time at the buffet caused Jeffery’s draft stock to fall but he figures to have a chance to open the season in the Bears starting lineup provided he puts in the time during the preseason. At 6’3” and 216 pounds, he is a big receiver who will likely be used on short and intermediate routes but he also has enough speed to be an occasional deep threat. Unfortunately, while Jeffery clearly has more upside than Devin Hester and Earl Bennett, he will likely split the scraps that Brandon Marshall leaves behind with those two players during his rookie season. If the Bears were a high flying offense, Jeffery might be worth taking a flier on but that clearly won’t be the case with new offensive coordinator Mike Tice running the show. Consider Jeffery waiver wire material in 2012 and a solid prospect in dynasty formats.

Violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances

FF Today's Take: Jeffery will be available for action in Week 15. Jeffery has been a fantasy disappoint this season scoring in double digits just twice in nine games and only has one touchdown on the season. The Bears will feature Cameron Meredith and Eddie Royal moving forward. Meredith's value gets the biggest bump over the next month.
| Eddie Royal a gametime decision -- Sun Oct 9 9:15 am --|

FF Today's Take: Royal missed practice all week so he's a true gametime decision. If he can't go, Cameron Meredith would get the start and be a viable streaming option against the Colts weak secondary.
