2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
He may be a mercurial headache, but gosh did Martellus Bennett produce at an elite level in 2014. Finishing first among tight ends in receptions (90) second in targets (128), and third in yards (916), Bennett had by far the best season of his seven-year career. After sitting out OTAs in an attempt to broker a raise, Bennett and the Bears seemed poised to continue their relationship into 2015. Fantasy speaking, the addition of reliable slot receiver Royal, will mean a drop in receptions and yards for Bennett, but the touchdown opportunities should remain for the 6’6 mammoth. Bennett should remain a value fantasy asset in a muddled tight end position, but expect TE1 production closer to his number No.10 finish in 2013.

News From The Past 90 Days
TE Zach Miller wants big contract
Reportedly seeking $5 million per year
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Feb 2, 1:45 pm

Chicgao Bears
here have been some robust pay days for tight ends since the end of the season and while those deals are out of the realm of what Zach Miller could command, the veteran is still seeking a big contract. Miller, who had a breakout second half of the season for the Chicago Bears, is asking for $5 million per year in a new contract, sources with knowledge of the situation told the Tribune. Unless that target figure drops in negotiations, it’s difficult to imagine a deal getting done before he becomes an unrestricted free agent in March. (Chicago Tribune)

FFToday's Take: A veteran, Miller didn't sniff the regular season from 2012-2014 and now wants a sizeable pay increase after seven-week resurgence while Martellus Bennett was hurt. The Bears were rumored to be shopping Bennett last off-season so there is some merit for the club bringing Miller back, but it would likely be at a lower price than Miller and his agent are currently floating.


Injury TE Martellus Bennett lands on injured reserve
Rib injury

FFToday's Take: Bennett has been bothered by a rib injury since Week 11 and hasn't had more than 3 receptions since Week 9. Zach Miller moves back into fantasy relevancy with Robert Housler on the roster for insurance.


Injury Martellus Bennett, Royal, Carey out for Thursday
Bears TE battling rib injury

Bears rule TE Martellus Bennett, WR Eddie Royal and RB Ka'Deem Carey out for Thursday night's game at #Packers (Brad Biggs on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Bennett has been battling a rib issue and was limited in Tuesday's practice. His absence means Zach Miller will get the start and will be a TE2 consideration against a Packers defense giving up the 8th-most fantasy points to tight ends.


Injury Alshon Jeffery not expected to play
Missed practice Thursday and Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 22, 7:30 am

Bears WR Alshon Jeffery, who missed the final two practices of the week with groin and shoulder injuries, not expected to play vs. Broncos (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jeffery missed practice Thursday and Friday which is never a good sign for availability on Sunday. With Jeffery down, Marquess Wilson becomes the top Bears wideout. Expect Marc Mariani too see more snaps and Martellus Bennett to see more targets.


Injury Forte, Jeffery miss practice on Thursday
MCL, groin injuries
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 19, 5:50 pm

Chicgao Bears
One day after both were limited participants, RB Matt Forte and WR Alshon Jeffery did not participate Thursday. Forte has a sprained MCL in his knee and Jeffery a groin problem. One contributing factor to Thursday’s status was the fact the Bears practiced indoors and on artificial turf, which is traditionally tough on those injuries. Jeffery — who the team said also has a shoulder injury — played Sunday, though he caught only three passes. Forte has missed the past two games since hurting his knee at home against the Vikings. (Chicago Sun-Times)

FFToday's Take: Forte has already suggested that he has to consider the Bears will be playing on a short week next week, which is a strong hint that he will miss this week against the Broncos and try to go on Thanksgiving. As for Jeffery, Friday's practice report will be critical. If he is forced to miss time, Marquess Wilson and Martellus Bennett figure to be on the receiving end of a lot of targets in Week 11.
