Alshon Jeffery disappoints in fantasy on Thursday night

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Bears passing game featured one wideout taking over in Week 6. It was not Alshon Jeffery. We break down the fantasy implications.

After breaking out for over 200 yards receiving last week, Alshon Jeffery took a backseat to Brandon Marshall in Week 6 against the Giants. Jeffery finished with a single catch for 27 yards on five targets.

The opportunities were there for Jeffery to pad his stats a bit. He let one deep ball fall straight through his hands on a throw Jay Cutler couldn't have put in a better position.

Fantasy impact: Owners who expected solid numbers week after week were probably unrealistic. With Marshall upset over his workload, Cutler switched his focus back to his No. 1 receiver.

Jeffery is still going to be an active part of the passing game going forward. He may just be more of a boom-or-bust option depending on how defenses play him and Marshall. Look for impressive games out of both receivers next week against a poor Redskins secondary.
