Devin Hester suffers concussion, fantasy value on hold

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Chicago Bears wide receiver Devin Hester suffered a concussion in Sunday's win over the Minnesota Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Devin Hester suffered a concussion on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings but his status for Week 13 will not be determined until later in the week. Hester started to display concussion symptoms in the first half and was taken back to the locker room for further testing. He did not return to the game. Coach Lovie Smith said afterward that he did not know how serious the injury was.

Hester did not have a catch on Sunday for the Bears, who were already playing without injured rookie Alshon Jeffery. The Bears face the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact: Hester has not been a great fantasy wide receiver, as most of Chicago's offense goes through Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall. Fantasy owners counting on Hester should monitor injury reports as the week goes along.

At best, Hester would be a low-end flex play in Week 13.
