Darnell Mooney Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

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.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney (back) is expected to play vs. the Rams tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mooney is listed as questionable but put in a full practice on Friday, so the back doesn't seem like a real concern.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game vs. the Rams. He got in a full practice on Friday, though, so expect him to play. Mooney has some breakout potential this season but is a shaky fantasy play vs. a tough Rams secondary.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney drew praise from HC Matt Nagy for his training camp performance. “Mooney is on fire with his route-running,” Nagy said via ESPN. “He’s running some routes right now that I really hadn’t seen him running. He’s putting his own spin and stamp on more routes.” Mooney’s already a speedster — he blazed a 4.38-forty in the 2020 pre-draft process. So improved route-running only adds to his 2021 breakout case. We love Mooney’s big-play potential, especially once Chicago makes the move to Justin Fields.

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.

The Bears have downgraded WR Darnell Mooney (ankle) to OUT for Sunday's game against the Saints. That boosts the fantasy football outlook for WR Anthony Miller.

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 is active for today’s game vs. the Texans. He missed practice this week due to a personal matter but is evidently ready to play. The rookie is just a fantasy flier.

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 active for today’s game vs. the Lions. He didn't practice on Friday and was listed as questionable, so the rookie figures to be operating at less than 100% today.

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
