The Athletic's Adam Jahns expects the Bears offense to feature more deep passes this season. "[HC Matt] Nagy’s offense has always been vertical," Jahns writes. "His practices in the offseason program and camp have featured plenty of shots down the field, including this year with [Andy] Dalton and [Justin] Fields in OTAs and minicamp. Nagy wants to be aggressive down the field. It’s in his playbook and in his nature as a coach and play-caller." QB Mitchell Trubisky struggled throwing deep over the past few seasons -- but it's a strength of Fields' game. More deep shots would be particularly good news for speedy WR Darnell Mooney.
Bears WR Darnell Mooney (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Saints. The rookie didn't practice all week, so it looks like he's in real danger of missing this one. Mooney has averaged 7 targets from QB Mitchell Trubisky over the last 6 games, so his absence would free up opportunity for Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller and Co.
Bears WR Darnell Mooney missed practice this week due to a personal matter. HC Matt Nagy only said Friday that he "thinks" Mooney will play vs. the Texans this weekend. The rookie shouldn't be in your Week 14 fantasy plans. His absence would free up a few extra targets for WRs Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller.
Bears WR Darnell Mooney (knee) is expected to play against the Lions today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The rookie didn't practice on Friday and is listed as questionable. We'd try to avoid using Mooney in Week 13 fantasy lineups at less than 100%.
Bears WR Darnell Mooney was added to the injury report on Friday with a knee. He didn't practice and is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Lions. Mooney was already a shaky fantasy play and is basically off the radar now that he's not at 100%. With WR Allen Robinson also dealing with a knee issue, WR Anthony Miller might be forced into a bigger role on Sunday.
Bears WR Allen Robinson has cleared the concussion protocol and is now expected to play Sunday against the Saints, according to multiple reports. That comes as a big surprise after the Bears listed him as doubtful Friday. Robinson obviously belongs in fantasy lineups in nearly all cases. His return knocks Chicago WRs Anthony Miller and Darnell Mooney back down the rankings, though it's still a decent spot for Mooney if you're looking for an option in low WR4 range.
Bears WR Allen Robinson (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Saints this weekend. That'd leave Darnell Mooney and Anthony Miller as Chicago's top 2 WRs. We've removed Robinson from the Week 8 WR Rankings and bumped up Mooney and Miller
Bears WR Allen Robinson has entered the league concussion protocol. There was no report of a concussion coming out of Monday night's game, so symptoms must have arisen since then. That doesn't bode well for his chances of making it back in time to face the Saints this Sunday. If Robinson's out, we'd likely see target boosts for WRs Darnell Mooney and Anthony Miller. It's tough to get excited about anyone in that offense as a fantasy option right now, though.
Bears WR Darnell Mooney (shoulder) is active for tonight's game against the Bucs. He's run more routes and out-targeted WR Anthony Miller over the past 3 weeks. Still, Mooney is really only in play for DFS showdown contests.
Bears WR Darnell Mooney (shoulder) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Buccaneers. It's an odd designation, because the Bears listed him as a full practice participant each day this week. We'll assume Mooney will play but will confirm his status when the inactives come out Thursday evening.
