Bears use 7th overall pick on WR Kevin White-- Thu Apr 30 9:15 pm --
A loaded Bears receiving corps is joined by the speedy wideout
The Bears used the seventh overall selection on wide receiver Kevin White from West Virginia. At 6'3" and running a 4.35 40 yard dash time, he will be an instant impact player. His size and speed ratio makes him a nightmare for smaller corners.(2015 NFL Draft)
FF Today's Take:In fantasy terms, he projects as a high upside rookie. With the departure of Brandon Marshall, there will be plenty of balls to go around in this pass happy offense.
Brandon Marshall heading to the Jets-- Fri Mar 6 11:05 am --
FF Today's Take:This move marks a downturn for Marshall's fantasy value considering the quarterback situation in New York. Geno Smith has thrown just 25 touchdown passes in two seasons. In a ripple effect, Alshon Jeffery gets a rise in fantasy value and becomes the clear No.1 receiver in Chicago. This move likely means the Jets will walk on Percy Harvin.
Brandon Marshall's status in Chicago unclear-- Wed Feb 11 1:42 pm --
GM and Coach made no assurances
Brandon Marshall said he met with new general manager Ryan Pace and new coach John Fox on Jan. 21. He understood why they assured him nothing about his future with the team, given their priorities to finalize the coaching staff and familiarize themselves with the scouting staff.(Chicago Tribune)
FF Today's Take:It's likely Marshall will remain in Chicago but nothing is set in stone. Marshall (31) just signed a four-year deal in May but the Bears could save $7.7 million in cash and nearly $4 million in salary cap money if they release the veteran receiver before March 12th. Marshall battled injuries in 2014 including a sprained ankle and a collapsed lung and broken ribs against Dallas in early December.
