Alshon Jeffery has enormous game for Bears, fantasy owners

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

The Bears wide receiver had the biggest game of his career Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery had an enormous game Sunday -- one of the biggest games for any wide receiver on the season, except that the Cleveland Browns' Josh Gordon had an even bigger game Sunday. Jeffery's performance came in the Bears' 23-20 overtime loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Jeffery caught 12 passes for 249 yards and two scores in the game. He had a strong first half, with 89 receiving yards before intermission, but really went off in the second half, with both of his scores coming in the third quarter, on 80- and 46-yard connections with quarterback Josh McCown. It was Jeffery's second 200-yard game of the season, fifth game of 100 or more yards, and first multi-touchdown game of Jeffery's career.

Fantasy impact: Jeffery has drawn himself almost even with Bears No. 1 wide receiver Brandon Marshall, and he's basically a No. 1 wide receiver for anyone right now. He is setting himself up to be a very early draft pick in next season's drafts.
