Alshon Jeffery has been making waves at Chicago Bears training camp. We break down the fantasy implications.

Bears WR Alshon Jeffery continued his excellent camp on Saturday by reeling in three scores on fade routes in red-zone drills, Brad Biggs reports.

Analysis: After practice, coach Lovie Smith said, "he was one of the few guys we were pleased with as far as his effort and being able to make plays." Effort was the red flag that was associated with Jeffery resulting in his slide into the second round of the NFL draft. Many NFL Draft gurus had Jeffery projected as a top-10 pick entering the 2011 season, but the Gamecock packed on the pounds and cost himself a lot of money. It appears that his days of being lazy are behind him and the 6'3 wideout is building up steam to get the majority of snaps in two-wide sets. Jay Cutler is loaded with weapons now that he's reunited with Brandon Marshall -- Marshall led the league in targets in his last two years with Cutler as his quarterback in Denver. The Bears have the firepower to be one of the best offenses in fantasy football. Even though Jeffery is having a great August, we wouldn't invest a pick in the single-digit rounds for 12-team leagues.
