Darnell Mooney Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Adam Jahns of The Athletic believes WR Velus Jones “should have an immediate role on offense.” Frankly, it would be a major disappointment if he didn’t. The Bears feature a bunch of WR3/4 types behind Darnell Mooney, while Jones exits college as a 25-year-old. So yes, the opportunity outlook is nice. And Jones boasts rare, 4.31 speed. But his pedigree is uninspiring, with just 58-627-4 across 4 seasons before a 2021 breakout (62-807-7). He's not someone we're chasing in rookie drafts.

Beat writer Adam Jahns considers WR to be the Bears’ “top priority” in free agency. It’s hard to argue that one. Darnell Mooney took a step forward this past year, locking him into a starting spot going forward. Allen Robinson will play elsewhere next year, though. And the team currently lacks quality WR talent. Michael Gallup, Mike Williams and D.J. Chark supply a few intriguing options, but we'll see who makes it to the open market. Bank on Chicago adding a WR or 2 in the draft — just note that they’re without a 1st rounder following last year’s trade up for Justin Fields. As of now, the Bears won’t be on the clock until the 7th pick of Round 2.

The Bears fired HC Matt Nagy. This move has been anticipated for weeks now. Nagy went 12-4 in his first season at the helm but totaled only 22 wins over the past 3 seasons. He also didn't seem to maximize QB Justin Fields' skill set this year. Chicago's next HC hire will be key for Fields' development.

Update: Chicago also fired GM Ryan Pace.

Bears WR Allen Robinson has been activated from the COVID list. He figures to siphon a few targets from WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet this weekend, but A-Rob isn't a fantasy option vs. the Giants.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Friday that QB Nick Foles will start Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. QB Andy Dalton (left hand, groin) is out for Week 16, while QB Justin Fields (ankle) was unable to practice on Thursday or Friday. Nagy said that Fields might be active on Sunday, but it'd be as Foles' backup. Foles made 7 starts for the Bears last season, averaging 238 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT on a 66% completion rate and 5.9 yards per attempt.

Bears WR Allen Robinson has been placed on the COVID list. He'll likely miss Monday night's game vs. the Vikings. Robinson, of course, has been a major disappointment this season and shouldn't have been in your Week 15 fantasy plans. His absence is a slight upgrade for WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals. WR Marquise Goodwin (foot) has been ruled out, leaving Damiere Byrd, Jakeem Grant and Isaiah Coulter behind Darnell Mooney. Mooney has racked up 24 targets over the past 2 weeks and is a strong volume bet again on Sunday.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He hasn't hit the practice field since Chicago came out of the Week 10 bye. WR Darnell Mooney will continue to dominate targets if Robinson misses Sunday's game vs. the Cardinals.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is inactive for today's game vs. the Lions. Darnell Mooney, Marquise Goodwin and Damiere Byrd will operate as Chicago's top 3 WRs.

The Bears list WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) as doubtful for Thursday's game vs. the Lions. He didn't practice all week and won't play tomorrow. That leaves Darnell Mooney as Chicago's #1 WR and a nice fantasy starter. Marquise Goodwin will be the #2 WR and is in play for DFS tournaments.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) remained sidelined on Tuesday. He's looking unlikely to play vs. the Lions on Thanksgiving, leaving Darnell Mooney and Marquise Goodwin as Chicago's top 2 WRs.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Ravens. Marquise Goodwin and Damiere Byrd figure to serve as Chicago’s #2 and #3 WRs but aren’t fantasy options. WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet should pick up extra targets with Robinson out.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ravens after missing practice all week. He obviously needs to be on fantasy benches. Robinson's absence will make a thin Chicago pass-catching corps even thinner. WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet should pick up extra targets.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney (groin) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Steelers. Mooney popped up on the injury report Friday, participating on a limited basis the final 2 days. We'll see about his status Monday evening. Mooney won't be worth waiting for in most fantasy football lineups.

Bears HC Matt Nagy tested positive for COVID. We'll see if he can get cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers. OC Bill Lazor has been calling plays for Chicago the past few weeks, so there's not much of a fantasy impact here.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney (groin) is active for today’s game against the Browns. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable, so he comes with a bit more risk than usual in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney (groin) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Browns. He was listed as questionable the past 2 weeks -- but that was with a back issue. We’ll get Mooney’s game status by noon ET on Sunday.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney (back) is active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. He was listed as questionable but put in a full week of practice, so the back shouldn’t be an issue. Mooney has a plus matchup vs. the Bengals CBs, but his upside is capped with Andy Dalton under center. WR Marquise Goodwin (quad) is also active for Chicago after being listed as questionable.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney (back) put in a full week of practice but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. He was "questionable" last week and ended up playing 100% of Chicago's offensive snaps. He'll be out there on Sunday but is a shaky fantasy option with Andy Dalton under center. WR Marquise Goodwin (quad) is also listed as questionable but should play after practicing in full all week.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney (back) is active for tonight’s game against the Rams. He put in a full practice on Friday, so we’re not overly concerned about the back. But the matchup vs. a tough Rams secondary leaves Mooney as a low-floor Week 1 fantasy play.
