Alshon Jeffery posts career-high fantasy day against the Vikings

The Bears wide receiver had one of the best fantasy lines of the season among all receivers in Week 13. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery caught 12 passes for 249 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a 23-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13. He was targeted 15 times in the game.

Fantasy impact: Jeffery's performance on Sunday puts him over the 1,000-yard receiving mark for the first time in his career. It also marked the second time this season he's surpassed 200 receiving yards in a game. Anybody that owns Jeffery this week has a good chance of gaining ground on their opponents in fantasy leagues, to say the least.

Perhaps the more important statistic from Sunday's game was that Jeffery has been targeted in the double digits in three of the last four games. It's clear that quarterback Josh McCown likes going to Jeffery and added looks always improve a receiver's fantasy value.

Jeffery has got to be a starter for fantasy owners in the playoffs with the amount of action that he's been seeing lately. Roll with him, you never know when it will payoff big.
