Alshon Jeffrey has been ruled inactive by the Bears for Sunday's game against the Titans. We break down the fantasy implications.
Alshon Jeffery has been ruled inactive for Sunday's game between the Chicago Bears and the Tennessee Titans. Jeffery will miss his third straight game due to a hand injury suffered in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Jeffery was unable to practice throughout the week, and was listed as out on Friday's injury report. He is still considered week-to-week by the Bears, and is about a month into his initial 4-to-6 week prognosis.
Fantasy Impact: The Bears will continue to roll without Jeffery at wide receiver. As a result, expect Brandon Marshall to continue hogging targets from quarterback Jay Cutler, while Devin Hester and Earl Bennett contribute wherever they can.
The Bears' wide receivers have a good matchup this week against a Titans secondary that has given up 17 passing touchdowns on the season. Check back on Jeffery's status next week when the Bears play the Houston Texans.
