Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Bears TE Cole Kmet led the team in targets (7) and receptions (6), tallying 72 yards in Sunday's loss to the Packers, the 1st game since WR Darnell Mooney's season-ending injury. WR Chase Claypool caught 5 of 6 targets for 28 yards. WR Equanimeous St. Brown compiled a team-leading 85 receiving yards, thanks primarily to a 56-yard play among his 3 receptions (4 targets).

Bears QB Justin Fields delivered a 55-yard TD run among 6 carries for 71 yards in Sunday's loss to the Packers, his return after a game lost to a shoulder injury. Fields also completed 20 of 25 passes for 254 yards, but he also tossed a pair of INTs. Fields and the Bears get a Week 14 bye before facing the Eagles, Bills and Lions in the final 3 weeks for most fantasy football leagues.

Bears S Jaquan Brisker and CB Kyler Gordon will each miss his 2nd straight game today because of a concussion. DeAndre Houston-Carson looks like the only Chicago safety to trust for IDP use. Elijah Hicks will likely start next to him, with Eddie Jackson out as well. CB Kindle Vildor (ankle) is also inactive vs. the Packers.

Seahawks RB Travis Homer (illness, knee) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Rams. Homer has played a sparse pass-catching role for Seattle this season, catching 10 of 11 targets in 7 appearances. RB DeeJay Dallas could pick up that work tomorrow -- or it could go to RB Ken Walker.

Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) is not listed on the final Week 13 injury report after getting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’ll be back under center vs. the Packers this weekend. Fields carries elevated risk playing through this left shoulder injury, but we know all about the upside – especially against a Green Bay defense that just coughed up 157 rushing yards to Eagles QB Jalen Hurts.

Bears QB Justin Fields put in a full practice on Thursday. Early reports had Field as a limited participant, but he was upgraded to full. He'll be in the QB1 mix if he's able to suit up against Green Bay.

Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited all last week before missing the Jets game, so this doesn't really tell us much about his Week 13 status. We'll continue to monitor Fields' status over the next few days, leading up to Sunday's game vs. the Packers.

Bills LB Tremaine Edmunds (groin, heel) and EDGE Greg Rousseau (ankle) each put in full practices Monday and Tuesday, which makes them appear on track to return for Thursday night's game against the Patriots. Edmunds had decent outings against New England last year, tallying 7, 8 and 8 tackles in 3 meetings. You can find him and Rousseau in our Week 13 IDP rankings. Elsewhere on the injury report: S Damar Hamlin and CB Dane Jackson each missed Monday's practice with illness but returned for Tuesday's workout.

Bears S Eddie Jackson suffered a "significant" Lisfranc injury to his left foot in Sunday's loss to the Jets, NFL Network reports. Jackson is reportedly still getting medical opinions but is expected to be out "indefinitely." It's OK to go ahead and drop Jackson in redraft IDP leagues.

Bears HC Matt Eberflus confirmed on Monday that WR Darnell Mooney will miss the rest of the 2022 season with the left ankle injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Jets. We'll look for further details on Mooney's timetable to return, but he should at least be ready for 2023 training camp. Mooney finishes his 3rd NFL season with a 40-493-2 line on 61 targets. He's stretched as a #1 WR but can certainly be a quality #2 for the rebuilding Bears.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney "likely" needs season-ending surgery to repair torn ligaments in his ankle, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. If that's the case, Chicago will be without the guy who drew 26.6% of the team's targets over the first 10 games of the season. It'd open up opportunity for WR Chase Claypool and TE Cole Kmet. But this will remain a low-volume passing game, so it's tough to get excited about any of the pass catchers. Even Mooney sat just 45th among WRs in PPR points through Week 11.

Bears WR Darnell Mooney hurt his left ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Jets and is officially doubtful to return. We'll update his status when we know more.

The Bears quickly ruled S Eddie Jackson out for the rest of today's game against the Jets after he left in the 1st half with a left foot injury. That obviously doesn't bode well for Jackson's outlook beyond this week. We'll watch for the official diagnosis and return timeline.

Bears S Eddie Jackson left in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets after hurting his left leg. He went down on a long TD play to WR Garrett Wilson. Jackson then left the field gingerly and rode a cart to the locker room. We'll watch for further details.

11:29am EST 11/27/22

Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Jets. He got in 3 limited practices this week, so we’ll see if he can get cleared for Week 13. QB Trevor Siemian makes his 30th career start today. He owns a 59% completion rate and 6.6 yards-per-attempt average. Chicago figures to throw it at least a bit more with Siemian under center, but we wouldn’t consider this an upgrade for anyone on the offense.

The Bears have not yet ruled QB Justin Fields out for Sunday's game against the Jets, but multiple reports say he's not expected to play. That means it'll almost certainly be Trevor Siemian vs. Mike White in this electrifying offensive matchup. Try to look elsewhere for fantasy upside when possible.

The Bears have elevated QB Nathan Peterman from the practice squad. That'd suggest that QB Justin Fields (shoulder) won't play vs. the Jets tomorrow -- although NFL Network's Mike Garafolo tweets that the Bears "haven’t ruled Justin Fields out and could keep him in play until game time." We should get an update on the situation on Sunday morning and will get Chicago's inactives around 11:30 am ET.

The Bears have ruled S Jaquan Brisker and CB Kyler Gordon out for Sunday's game against the Jets, both with concussions. DeAndre Houston-Carson looks like the fill-in for Brisker. Kindle Vildor should be the #2 CB, joining CB Jaylon Johnson.

Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. “We’ll see where it goes,” HC Matt Eberflus said Friday, adding that Fields still has work to do to be medically cleared. We should get a Fields update on Sunday morning and will have Chicago’s inactives by 11:30 am ET. Fields will carry elevated risk in fantasy lineups if he ends up playing. If not, the Bears will turn to QB Trevor Siemian.

Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We'll see what he does tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report for this weekend's game vs. the Jets.
