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 seasoning 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.
