Pernell McPhee Fantasy Football News 2020

Bears OLB Pernell McPhee (knee) is active for today's game against the Falcons. He's not much of an IDP option, though, and Chicago ranks among the weakest team D plays in Week 1. The Bears will be without CB Prince Amukamara (ankle) who entered the weekend doubtful and has missed a lot of time this summer.

The Bears defense will be without OLBs Leonard Floyd (concussion) and Pernell McPhee (shoulder) for today's game against the Vikings. Joining them on the inactive list are S Deon Bush (ankle) and CB Bryce Callahan (hamstring). CB Tracy Porter (knee), OLB Willie Young (knee) and CB Cre'von LeBlanc (knee) are active despite entering the day questionable.

The Bears will have OLB Pernell McPhee (knee), OLB Willie Young (ankle) and CB Tracy Porter (knee) on the field today against the Giants. All 3 are active after entering the day questionable. All sit well down the list as IDP options but are in play if they make sense for your lineup.

Bears OLB Pernell McPhee (knee) and CB Tracy Porter (knee) are active for today's game against the Bucs. Neither makes for a strong IDP option.

The Bears on Thursday activated OLB Pernell McPhee from the PUP list. McPhee had been out since having offseason knee surgery but should get worked back into the OLB rotation. Willie Young has played well recently, including 5 sacks over the 2 games leading up to Thursday night's visit to Green Bay. Rookie Leonard Floyd has been dealing with a calf injury and has lacked the time to grow in the defense this season. Chicago entered Week 7 tied for 12th in the league in sacks.

The Bears have placed OLB Pernell McPhee on the PUP list for the regular season. That means he'll miss at least the 1st 6 games. McPhee has yet to return from the field following offseason knee surgery to fix an issue that dogged him all last season. He's not usable in redraft fantasy football leagues. McPhee's absence hurts the Chicago team D, but that unit's only in play as a matchup option anyway.

The Bears will have ILB Shea McClellin (concussion), OLB Willie Young (rib), OLB Pernell McPhee (knee) and S Adrian Amos available for today's finale against the Lions. None makes for a strong IDP option, however, and the team D is no better than a boom/bust DFS play.

Bears OLB Pernell McPhee (knee) is active for today's game against the Vikings. He has played through questionable tags for a while but has also been limited by his knee issue and unproductive. Keep him out of IDP lineups if you can.

Just a few days after DC Vic Fangio conceded that the Bears probably couldn't expect much from OLB Pernell McPhee the rest of the way because of a knee injury, the team deemed him doubtful for Sunday's game against Washington. It's OK to quit on McPhee in your redraft IDP league.

Bears OLB Pernell McPhee has been limited by a knee injury in recent weeks even when active. (He missed Week 10.) According to ESPN.com's Jeff Dickerson, the team doesn't expect that to change this year. "I think what we've gotten out of him the last few weeks is about all we could expect right now," DC Vic Fangio said. What they've gotten from him has been 0 tackles for loss over the past 4 games and 1 total QB hit over the past 3. McPhee started strong this year and retains a positive long-term IDP outlook, but don't expect much more from him this season.

Bears OLB Pernell McPhee (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Packers. Use him as you normally would. S Antrel Rolle (knee) is inactive, giving Chris Prosinski the start in his place for the 2nd straight game.

Bears S Antrel Rolle (knee) and OLB Pernell McPhee (knee) are questionable for tonight's game against the Packers. Neither makes for a strong IDP play even if active, and the Bears' team D certainly doesn't look like a fantasy target this week. But we'll update their status when the late inactives get announced.

Bears S Antrel Rolle is inactive for today's game against the Broncos. The team downgraded him from probable with an ankle issue Friday to questionable Saturday after he suffered a knee injury, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The Bears will have OLB Pernell McPhee (knee), however, who entered the weekend questionable after missing last week's game. He's a decent IDP option against Denver's oft-shaky protection.

Bears OLB Pernell McPhee (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos after practicing Friday for the 1st time in 2 weeks. "My mentality is [that] I'm looking forward to playing the Denver Broncos," McPhee said after Friday's workout, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. "I'm feeling great." McPhee missed the Week 10 win at St. Louis but would certainly carry upside against Denver in Brock Osweiler's 1st start. Weigh the risk vs. reward as you consider whether McPhee makes sense in your IDP lineup. His presence would certainly add to any sleeper potential for the Chicago D in fantasy football this week.

The Bears will be without OLB Pernell McPhee today. He's inactive against the Rams with a knee injury. That takes the dominant #1 rusher from an otherwise weak pass rush. Fortunately, you shouldn't have been using the Bears' team D anyway.

Bears OLB Pernell McPhee is questionable for Sunday's game at St. Louis with a knee injury that kept him out of practice all week. We'll check on his status Sunday morning. McPhee has ranked among the league's top pass-rushers so far this season.

11:05am EDT 10/18/15

As expected, Bears OLB Pernell McPhee is active against the Lions today. He had been questionable with a shoulder issue but played through it last week. He's a good play in sack-friendly IDP scoring leagues.

Bears OLB Pernell McPhee is officially questionable for Sunday against the Lions, but he has played through the shoulder issue the past 2 weeks. Expect him to be a full-go and to once again be worth a spot in your IDP lineup if you play in a sack-favoring scoring system.

10:48am EDT 10/11/15

As expected, Bears OLB Pernell McPhee is active for today's game at Kansas City. As a pass rusher, primarily, he of course brings volatility to your IDP lineup -- but there's also big upside against a Chiefs offense tied for most sacks allowed.

Bears OLB Pernell McPhee is officially questionable for Sunday's game at Kansas City because of a shoulder injury that has lingered for a few weeks, but we've seen no indication that he's actually in danger of missing the game. Expect to have the high-upside pass-rusher available for your IDP lineup, and we'll update his status Sunday morning.
