Going into last season, Bears rookie WR Alshon Jeffery was a trendy sleeper pick across fantasy drafts. In his NFL debut, he posted an impressive 3/80/1 line vs. the Colts. Unfortunately, Jeffery couldn’t build off his debut, as his Week 1 performance wound up being his most productive. With another year of Alshon+Jeffery+Denver+Broncos+v+Chicago+Bears+AhIxbSObGyIxseasoning under his belt, the second year South Carolina product has already made considerable progress.

Coming off his best game as a pro, Jeffery hauled in 5 receptions for 107 yards and a TD in last week’s loss to the Lions. While a chunk of that production came in garbage time, Jeffery has already shown signs of being a more consistent target in Marc Trestman’s first-year offense. Through four weeks, Jeffery has tallied a solid 18/211/1 line.

The Bottom Heist: Playing opposite Brandon Marshall would get just about anybody looks in the passing game. But at 6’3-215, Jeffery is a big target who will continue to get his opportunities from Jay Cutler.
