  Bears | Byron Pringle to miss time    Sat Aug 6, 11:04 PM

Chicago Bears WR Byron Pringle (quadriceps) will miss 'a little bit' of time while dealing with a quadriceps injury, head coach Matt Eberflus said Saturday, Aug. 6.

Footballguys view: N'keal Harry also suffered an ankle injury on Satursday that the team is worried about, perhaps a severe injury awaiting further evaluation, so the Bears wide receiver group is getting thin. Dante Pettis, Tajae Sharpe, and Isaiah Coulter are among the receivers who can take advantage of the reps freed up by these injuries.

  Bears | Velus Jones sidelined    Sat Aug 6, 11:01 PM

Chicago Bears WR Velus Jones (undisclosed) missed his second straight practice Saturday, Aug. 6.

Footballguys view: Jones is competing for a big role in an undermanned passing game. He has some return game chops and can be used as a ballcarrier and on screens and plays designed to get the ball in his hands. He needs to get on the field to increase his chances of mattering for the Bears, and maybe in deep fantasy leagues.

  Bears | Khalil Herbert likely to see more work in 2022    Fri Aug 5, 01:29 PM

Chicago Bears RB Khalil Herbert has earned the trust of the team's coaching staff and is expected to see more work alongside David Montgomery this season than he did in 2021, in the opinion of 670 the Score's Chris Emma.

Footballguys view: Herbert was arguably as good as Montgomery last year as a runner, and he deserves more work, especially with Montgomery hitting free agency next year and Herbert entering only his second year in the league. Herbert has Montgomery injury upside, but he could have some standalone value if the Bears running game is effective.

  Bears | Mooney loves new offense    Sun Jul 17, 10:10 AM

Dan Pompei, of The Athletic, reports that the Bears plan to make #1 receiver Darnell Mooney a "moving target", sending him in motion or moving him from on ball to off ball or outside to the slot. Mooney said he "loves" the offense, and that it "makes sense". Pompei also writes that offensive coordinator Luke Getsy is asking Mooney "to explode off the ball on every play, pass or run, so defenders don't get a read on play intention."

Footballguys view: We could be collectively way too low on Mooney if he is up to the task of being a #1 receiver, Justin Fields is up to the task of being an NFL starting quarterback, and Getsy is up to the task of coordinating an NFL offense with probably the most underwhelming personnel in the league, at least at wide receiver. Mooney's quickness and speed are #1 receiver quality, and he has been relentlessly working out to get his undersized frame ready for #1 duties, bulking up to 183 from his combine weight of 176. Mooney put up 81-1055-4 in a dysfunctional offense last year, and his comment that the offense "makes sense" now hints at a lot of upside beyond those numbers, and not just because he could get more target with Allen Robinson gone to join the Rams.

  Bears | Darnell Mooney improving stamina    Fri Jul 15, 10:43 PM

Chicago Bears WR Darnell Mooney said he focused on conditioning this offseason after dealing with fatigue during games last season.

Footballguys view: Another day, and another positive story about Mooney. Fantasy GMs should have a certain level of excitement about what Mooney can do this season. Of course, those projections have to be weighed with the growth of QB Justin Fields. He notched over 1,000 yards receiving last year with four receiving touchdowns (on 140 targets), and this year we like him to post similar numbers. The no.1 receiver for the Bears should be considered a low-end WR2 or flex option for Fantasy GMs out there.

  Bears | Khalil Herbert locked into role    Thu Jul 14, 09:49 PM

Chicago Bears RB Khalil Herbert is the only running back outside of RB David Montgomery who is locked into a 'key role' in the Chicago running attack, according to Alyssa Barbieri of BearsWire.

Footballguys view: The Bears are going to aim to be run heavy, although game scripts may keep them from doing that well into the second halves of games. Herbert was at least Montgomery's equal running the ball last year, and a new regime could see him as deserving of more work than he got last year, especially with Montgomery hitting free agency next year and Herbert in only the second year of a four-year rookie deal.

  Bears | Equanimeous St. Brown    Thu Jul 14, 09:46 PM

Chicago Bears WR Equanimeous St. Brown 'appears to be in line' for the No. 4 receiver spot, according to Alyssa Barbieri of BearsWire.

Footballguys view: This is more an indictment of the Bears depth chart at wide receiver than a reason to be excited about St. Brown, who hung on the roster but failed to make an impact in Green Bay. Offensive coordinator Luke Getsy might feel like there was some untapped potential since he was in the building with St. Brown for three of the receiver's four years. The Bears remain a candidate to claim receiver(s) another team releases before the season.

New England Patriots WR N'Keal Harry was traded to the Chicago Bears in exchange for a 2024 seventh-round draft pick Tuesday, July 12.

Footballguys view: Harry wasn't going to make the roster in New England, and he has a chance to do that with the Bears. Right now, Harry is likely no.4 on the depth chart behind Darnell Mooney, Byron Pringle, and rookie Velus Jones. From a fantasy perspective, there's not much there for Harry.

  Bears | Velus Jones not concerned with age    Sun Jul 10, 07:04 PM

Chicago Bears WR Velus Jones is not concerned about his age as he enters the NFL at 25 years old. 'People talk about it, but it don't matter,' Jones said. 'I'm a baller at the end of the day. I know what I can do. Me being 25 years [old] is not going to stop me from running past people to score touchdowns and stuff like that. I'm going to be fast for a long time, strong for a long time and making plays for a long time. So, it's really irrelevant.'

Footballguys view: Jones' age is more about the quality of prospect he represents than any knock on his game. Since he's older than a typical prospect, some of his good play in college might have been because he was a more developed athlete and football player. That gap will disappear in the pros, and he might look a lot more ordinary than a third-round pick does in their rookie season. Regardless, he will get a lot of opportunity by default, and should be on your redraft waiver wire watch list, especially in leagues that score return yardage.

  Bears | Byron Pringle projected as starter    Sat Jul 2, 04:34 PM

Chicago Bears WR Byron Pringle was projected as the starter opposite Darnell Mooney, according to Alyssa Barbieri of Bears Wire.

Footballguys view: Pringle was successful at times as a role player in the Chiefs offense and that earned him a chance to start for Chicago after going undrafted out of Kansas State in 2018. He was arrested for reckless driving and driving with a suspended license in the offseason. It's not clear if he'll be suspended by the league for the incident, but if he is, it will be a short suspension. Pringle isn't worth drafting in typical leagues, but if defenses sell out to take away Darnell Mooney, Pringle could have some matchup play value in deep leagues.

  Bears | QB Fields Improved Mechanics/Quicker Release    Mon Jun 20, 03:23 PM

Jeremy Fowler, from ESPN.com, reports the Chicago Bears coaching staff has been encouraged by the improved mechanics and quicker release they've seen from second-year QB Justin Fields.

Footballguys view: According to the report, Fields is better when throwing on the run as well. Fields wasn't done any favors last season as a rookie working under former head coach Matt Nagy. Now, we'll get to see if he can build on the brief flashes he showed as a rookie in an offense that is much better suited for a player with his skill set.
