Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery practiced on a limited basis on Friday, returning to the field for the first time since breaking his right hand in Week 5. The Bears said this week that Jeffery was getting better and it now appears he could return in Week 11 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Jeffery was drafted to help Chicago's passing game, which has been focused almost entirely this season around Brandon Marshall. Jeffery had 14 catches for 184 yards and two touchdowns this season before getting hurt.
Fantasy Impact: This is good news for those who have Jeffery in keeper and dynasty formats but he's missed a lot of time and it's unclear how often Jay Cutler will look the rookie's way once he returns. The Bears do need another option in the passing game and Jeffery could still be that player.
Jeffery is only worth adding in deep leagues by owners who can afford to stash a player or two on the bench.
