Chicago Bears Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2021

Most Recent 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 OLB Khalil Mack (foot) is active for today's game against the Buccaneers. DL Bilal Nichols (knee) and CB Duke Shelley (ankle) are as well.

Bears RB Damien Williams is active for today’s game against the Bucs. He was just activated from the COVID list on Saturday, so it’s uncertain how big a role he’ll play today. We’d try not to use Williams in Week 7 fantasy lineups. Bears RB Khalil Herbert is a better bet.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Bucs. Robinson played through this injury last week, posting a 92% snap rate and 4-53 line on 7 targets. He should be available for a full-time role today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Bears WR Allen Robinson (ankle) will play vs. the Bucs today. Robinson got in 2 limited practices this week and is listed as questionable, but there was never much doubt about his status after he played through this injury last week.

The Bears have ruled DL Akiem Hicks out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. He was initially questionable with his groin injury.

The Bears have activated RB Damien Williams from the COVID list. That makes him available to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, where he'll likely split work with Khalil Herbert. Exactly how Chicago will split that work won't be clear until the game happens. The pair has shared just 1 game since David Montgomery went down. Herbert carried 18 times to Williams' 16 in that contest, with Williams getting all 3 of the pass targets between them.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay. He has made a habit of playing through questionable tags, so it seems unwise to bet against Mack. The Buccaneers present 1 of the league's worst sack matchups, though. So it's not a great spot for an active Mack. Also questionable are DL Akiem Hicks (groin), DL Bilal Nichols (knee) and CB Duke Shelley (ankle). Chicago has ruled out S Tashaun Gipson. Deon Bush, who replaced an injured Gipson earlier this season, is on IR. So it'll be DeAndre Houston-Carson starting in Gipson's place.

Bears TE Jimmy Graham has been placed on the COVID list and will miss Sunday's game vs. the Bucs. He's seen just 3 targets all season, so there's no tangible fantasy impact here.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bucs. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. That’s an improvement over last week, when he only practiced on Friday before playing 92% of the offensive snaps vs. the Packers. Robinson should be fine for Sunday’s game in Tampa.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bears RB Damien Williams can't be cleared from the COVID list until Saturday at the earliest because he's unvaccinated. That puts his Week 7 status in doubt. Even if Williams is activated on Saturday, it's unclear if and how much he'd play vs. the Bucs after being sidelined for 10 days. RB Khalil Herbert is the superior fantasy play even if Williams ends up active on Sunday.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (foot) is active for today's game against the Packers. He missed practice all week, so there's a chance he's limited vs. his usual performance level. But he's available for IDP lineups. DL Akiem Hicks (groin) and CB Duke Shelley (ankle) are active as well after arriving questionable.

Bears RB Damien Williams (COVID) is out for today’s game vs. the Packers. Rookie Khalil Herbert is expected to operate as Chicago’s lead (feature?) back. RBs Ryan Nall and Artavis Pierce are behind Herbert on the depth chart.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so don’t expect him to be at 100% today. Robinson sits outside WR3 territory in the Week 6 Rankings.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (ankle) is expected to play vs. the Packers today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. A-Rob got in just 1 limited practice this week, so the assumption is that he'll be operating at less than 100% today. He's a shaky fantasy option.

Bears OLB Khalil Mack (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers. Mack missed practice all week, a step down from last week, when he put in a limited Friday workout. Mack played through that questionable tag, though, and has done so multiple times this season. Also questionable for the Bears defense are: DL Akiem Hicks (groin), CB Duke Shelley (ankle) and S Eddie Jackson (knee). We'll update the statuses for all 4 on Sunday morning.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Packers. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. A fantasy dud even before this injury, Robinson is better off on fantasy benches this week.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. His status for this weekend's game vs. the Packers is now in question. Robinson, of course, has been a major fantasy disappointment even before this injury. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

The Bears on Thursday placed RB Damien Williams on the COVID list. Regardless of his specific status, that doesn't give him a very good chance of playing Sunday against the Packers. Already without David Montgomery (knee sprain), Chicago now figures to lean on rookie Khalil Herbert as the backfield leader. The touch volume should be solid-to-good, but make sure you don't overrate the situation for a 6th-round pick in a bad offense and a matchup that finds the opponent heavily favored. Ryan Nall is the only other RB on the active roster and figures to be involved to some degree. He totaled just 3 carries and 9 targets for last year's Bears. Artavis Pierce is the only RB on the practice squad.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Williams tested positive for COVID. It'll be tough for him to return 2 negative tests prior to Sunday's game vs. the Packers.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't have any other details on his situation, but Robinson did play his usual allotment of snaps in last week's win over the Raiders. We'll see if he gets back on the practice field tomorrow.
