Alshon Jeffery injury: Fantasy value could return in 2 weeks

Jonathan Daniel

Alshon Jeffery could return to the Chicago Bears in two weeks from a broken hand. We break down the fantasy implications.

Alshon Jeffery could return to the Chicago Bears in two weeks from a broken hand, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. A source said that the wide receiver could play in Week 10 against the Houston Texans, and if not then Week 11 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Jeffery broke his hand during the Bears' Week 5 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars and has been relegated to the sideline since. He is expected to sit this week against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Head coach Lovie Smith said that Jeffery has done a good job remaining in shape, so conditioning shouldn't be an issue once he is able to get back on the field. The rookie is still the Bears' third leading receiver despite missing two games. He has 14 receptions for 184 yards and two touchdowns on the season.

Jeffery is still a risky starting fantasy option at this point, although his upside is pretty high. He could take on a larger role with Bears in the second half of the season, but for now you should have better options to play if you're in a standard format fantasy league.
