S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has signed a 1-year deal with the Bears. He'll take over the SS role vacated by Adrian Amos' departure for Green BAy. Clinton-Dix spent the final 9 games with Washington after Green Bay traded him away last season. He delivered top-10 fantasy scoring, at least his 3rd season in DB1 scoring range, depending on your format. Clinton-Dix should have another shot at solid IDP production with the Bears. Amos didn't post big stats last year but scored as a DB1 the season before over 13 games.
Bears S Eddie Jackson is active for today’s game against the Eagles. He arrived questionable after missing the previous 2 games with an ankle sprain
Bears S Eddie Jackson (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. He missed the past 2 games but returned for limited practices the past 2 days. We'll check his status Sunday.
Bears S Eddie Jackson (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vikings. That would be his 2nd straight missed game. Without Jackson last week, the Chicago D still held the Niners to just 9 points and 279 total yards on the road.
Bears S Eddie Jackson (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the 49ers. That takes a boom/bust option out of IDP lineups for the week. It also takes Pro Football Focus' top-graded safety out of the Chicago defense. We'll see about the impact, given that this will be the 1st time Jackson hasn't started since he entered the league in 2017. But it has to ding the Bears' pass D at least a bit.
Bears DE Akiem Hicks (Achilles’ tendon) is active for today’s game against the Giants. He began the week not practicing but returned to the field Friday and should be in IDP lineups for this upside matchup.
Bears DL Akiem Hicks is questionable for Sunday's game at the Giants with an Achilles' injury. Hicks returned to a full practice Friday, though, after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. He looks likely to play, but we'll check his status Sunday morning.
Bears DE Akiem Hicks missed practice Wednesday and Thursday because of an Achilles' tendon issue. Here's what HC Matt Nagy told the Chicago Sun-Times on Thursday: "His is precautionary. It's just one of those things. We just felt like with where he's at, it would be good to give him a day and help him out there." DC Vic Fangio added: “He’s got a way to rally about himself and can kind of ignore whatever bumps and bruises he has going. He’s a tough guy.” It sounds like the Bears expect him to play. We'll check Hicks' Friday participation and game status. If he's OK for Sunday, the matchup with the Giants presents a high IDP ceiling.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack (ankle, groin) put in a full practice Wednesday. That marks the 1st full practice since Week 6 for Mack, who missed the past 2 games. The star pass-rusher appears on track to return for Sunday's game against the Lions, which would only help make fantasy's top defense a stronger play against an up-and-down Detroit offense.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack is out for today's game against the Bills. That takes out a prime IDP option, but it doesn't stop the Chicago D from being the week's strongest play vs. Buffalo QB Nathan Peterman.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bears OLB Khalil Mack is "unlikely to play" against the Bills today, "though Chicago wants to see him pregame before making any final determination." IDP owners can wait for his status at 11:30 a.m. ET before making lineup decisions, but expect to not have Mack available. The Bears' team D remains a strong option, however, against Nathan Peterman.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Sunday's game at Buffalo with the ankle injury that cost him last Sunday's game against the Jets. Mack again missed 2 days of practice before putting in a limited workout Friday. That's been his schedule the past 2 weeks. We'll see about his status Sunday morning.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack is inactive for today's game against the Jets. His sprained ankle is clearly worse off than last week, when he played through a "questionable" tag for 84% of the snaps. We'll see about his status for Week 9. The Bears' D remains a strong fantasy play for the week, though losing Mack dings the upside at least a bit.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Just like last week, he sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday with the ankle injury and then returned for a limited Friday workout. Mack still played 84% of the snaps in the loss to the Patriots. We'd bet on full playing time once again this week.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack is active for today's game against the Patriots. His troublesome ankle might limit his effectiveness, but we'd go ahead and take the risk in most cases where Mack makes sense for IDP lineups.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He returned to a limited practice Friday after sitting out Wednesday's and Thursday's workouts. We'd bet on the star pass-rusher playing, but we'll check on Mack's status Sunday morning.
Bears HC Matt Nagy told reporters Wednesday that OLB Khalil Mack is "day-to-day" with the ankle injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to Miami. "We're just going to continue to keep an eye on it and be more cautious than anything," the coach said, according to the team website. Don't be surprised if we see little-to-no Mack on the practice field this week. But he played 79.5% of the snaps against the Dolphins -- a season-high 62 total snaps in the OT game. So we'd bet on Mack playing in Week 7. We'll certainly watch the star pass-rusher's status into the weekend.
Bears OLB Khalil Mack will have tests this week on his right ankle, HC Matt Nagy told reporters Monday. Mack hurt the ankle in the 1st half of Sunday's OT loss to the Dolphins but still played a full snap allotment. We'll see if the joint will present a problem going forward.
Bears DE Akiem Hicks was ejected in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's win over the Buccaneers for making contact with an official. Hicks stayed on the sideline several plays into the next series until officials told the team he needed to leave the field. At that point, Hicks removed his jersey and shoulder pads and flung them into the stands. He'll at least face a fine for the ejection and could be in for a 1-game suspension. We'll keep an eye out for that. Chicago gets a Week 5 bye.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bears rookie ILB Roquan Smith and OLB Khalil Mack will not play the whole game Sunday night against the Packers. Mack, of course, recently joined the team after holding out through August. Smith arrived mid-August after an extended negotiation over his rookie deal, and then lost time to a hamstring issue. Each should show up some on the stat sheet and remains a potential full-season IDP stud. But it's tough to trust either new Bears defender in Week 1 IDP lineups.
