  Bears | Rome Odunze wants to break rookie record    Fri Jun 14, 11:56 AM

Chicago Bears WR Rome Odunze said he would like to break Los Angeles Rams WR Puka Nacua's rookie record of 1,486 yards in a season, according to The Chicago Sun-Times' Jason Lieser.

Footballguys view: We like for receivers to have lofty goals and opinions of their abilities, but Odunze will have trouble doing that with D.J. Moore and Keenan Allen also running routes in the Chicago offense. Odunze is the cheapest of the three in fantasy drafts by 15-20 picks, so he might be the best investment in redraft leagues, banking on the same rookie-rookie chemistry that got Tank Dell out of the gate hot in Houston last year.

  Bears | D'Andre Swift listed as lead back    Sun Jun 2, 09:50 AM

Chicago Bears RB D'Andre Swift is listed as the No. 1 running back on the team's depth chart and is likely to see a great deal of playing time in third-down and red zone situations, as well as on first and second downs, according to head coach Matt Eberflus.

Footballguys view: We love the top three backs on the Bears' roster. Swift is talented, and he can be reliable on all three downs. However, Roschon Johnson can make plays as a runner and receiver too. Oh yeah, Khalil Herbert has the ability to start for other teams but is second or third in the pecking order with the Bears. We see Swift as an RB2/flex play for Fantasy GMs this year in what will be a split backfield...even though Swift will be the lead back.

  Bears | Caleb Williams shines at OTAs    Sat Jun 1, 12:20 PM

Chicago Bears QB Caleb Williams shined during organized team activities on Friday, May 31. Williams completed 13-of-15 passes and 'threw darts all over the field' and a touchdown pass to DJ Moore.

Footballguys view: This showing is on the heels of the rookie struggling during the previous open OTAs practice. It's good to see Williams bounce back after a rough start. His skill is off the charts, and if the Bears can develop him properly Williams could be a superstar.

  Bears | Caleb Williams struggles at OTAs    Sat May 25, 12:10 PM

Chicago Bears QB Caleb Williams had a rough showing at the team's first open session of organized team activities on Thursday, May 23. Williams completed just three passes during 7-on-7 drills and had multiple near interceptions.

Footballguys view: Williams is a rookie, and he's going to have some rough days - especially early on. This is not a great report when most articles about rookie first-round quarterbacks have much more glowing reviews. However, it's incredibly early so this type of report should not be a surprise.

  Bears | Rome Odunze sits out Thursday    Fri May 24, 05:21 PM

Chicago Bears WR Rome Odunze (hamstring) did not participate in the voluntary workout Thursday, May 23, because of a hamstring injury he suffered during the rookie minicamp.

Footballguys view: The Bears are going to be safe with their first-round receiver. It's not the end of the world that he's missing practice, but it still would be better if he was out there catching passes from Caleb Williams. We'll see if Odunze can get on the field for mandatory minicamp (at the latest) in a couple of weeks.

  Bears | Swift gets coaching staff excited    Wed May 15, 03:43 PM

Kevin Fishbain, from the Athletic, reports Chicago Bears running backs coach Chad Morton said he's "excited" about using D'Andre Swift as a pass catcher out of the backfield.

Footballguys view: We'll see how much Bears' OC Shane Waldron plans to throw Swift the ball. With rookie QB Caleb Williams under center, short passes can work as long handoffs as the team sets up their young passer for success. Swift will compete with Khalil Herbert for pass-catching duties in the backfield. He'll also compete with Herbert and Roschon Johnson for carries in 2024. Let's see how this shakes out in training camp.

  Bears | Rome Odunze misses practice    Sun May 12, 07:37 AM

Chicago Bears WR Rome Odunze (hamstring) was absent from practice due to hamstring tightness Saturday, May 11.

Footballguys view: Hamstring tightness is not a big deal, and the team is wisely being cautious with their first-round pick. Their other first-round pick, QB Caleb Williams, should be building a strong chemistry with Odunze later this summer.

Chicago Bears WR Rome Odunze (hamstring) is sitting out at rookie minicamp on Saturday, May 11, due to hamstring tightness.

Footballguys view: You never want to see hamstring and your wide receiver's name in the same sentence, but if Odunze can make it through OTA's and camp without any further incidents, we won't worry about this.

  Bears | Caleb Williams officially starter    Fri May 10, 12:39 PM

Chicago Bears QB Caleb Williams was officially named the starter by head coach Matt Eberflus on Friday, May 10.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Williams is a generational talent, and it's on the Bears' staff to get the most out of him. There are plenty of weapons around him, and if Williams finished 2024 as a QB1 for Fantasy GMs we wouldn't be surprised. Right now, most are drafting him as a QB2 with upside.

Nonetheless, peforming due dilegence makes sense.
