Taylor Gabriel Fantasy Football News 2019

Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He exploded for 3 TDs in his last outing but totaled just 3 catches for 35 scoreless yards over the first 2 weeks. Gabriel remains just a fantasy flier.

Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) didn't travel with the team to London and is out for Sunday's game against the Raiders. WR Javon Wims actually played ahead of WR Anthony Miller with Gabriel out last week. Allen Robinson is the only Chicago WR that should be in Week 5 fantasy lineups.

Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. It gives WR Anthony Miller an opportunity to play an increased role — but he’s not a recommended fantasy play in this matchup.

Bears WR Taylor Gabriel sustained a concussion in the 3rd quarter of Monday night's game in Washington. It ended a huge night that saw Gabriel haul in 6 balls for 75 yards and 3 TDs. That followed 35 scoreless receiving yards over the first 2 weeks of the season. We'll track Gabriel's progress through the protocol this week.

The Bears selected Georgia WR Riley Ridley in the 4th round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Calvin’s younger brother never popped at Georgia, topping out with 43 catches, 559 yards and 9 TDs this past season. Even in a run-heavy offense, his market shares underwhelm: 17.8% of the catches, 17.6% of the receiving yards and 26.5% of the receiving scores. Those marks rank 39th, 43rd and 29th among the 48 WRs at this year’s Combine. Ridley doesn’t check the athleticism box either, registering a 15th percentile SPARQ score at 6’1 and 194 pounds. He is 1 of the better route runners in this class and shows well in contested situations. That makes him a pro-ready and relatively safe WR prospect, but nothing in Ridley’s profile points to him becoming a real difference maker for the Bears or fantasy squads. He’ll compete for targets with Anthony Miller and Taylor Gabriel behind Allen Robinson.

Bears WRs Allen Robinson (ribs), Taylor Gabriel (shoulder) and Anthony Miller (shoulder) all practiced in full on Wednesday. Robinson sat out the season finale vs. Minnesota, while Gabriel and Miller exited early. But it looks like Chicago's WR corps will be at full strength for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Bears WR Taylor Gabriel suffered a shoulder injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Minnesota and is questionable to return. Chicago already lost WR Anthony Miller to a shoulder injury, and WR Allen Robinson is inactive with a rib injury.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (ribs) is inactive for today’s game against the Vikings. Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller will serve as Chicago’s top 2 WRs and are both in the WR3 mix for fantasy lineups.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (ribs) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Vikings after missing practice all week. His absence will leave Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller as Chicago’s top 2 WRs. TE Trey Burton could also see a boost in volume.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Bills. Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller will again serve as Chicago’s top 2 WRs and are both lower-end WR3 options in fantasy lineups.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It wouldn't make much sense for Chicago to push him out there for an easily winnable game vs. Buffalo this weekend. Look for Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller to again serve as the Bears' top 2 WRs for that one.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is inactive for today’s game against the Jets. His absence leaves Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller as Chicago’s top 2 WRs. Consider Gabriel a WR3 and Miller a WR4 consideration.

The forecast for today's Jets-Bears game calls for 20 mph sustained winds with gusts around 35 mph. That's more than enough to impact the deep-passing and kicking games. You shouldn't have been investing in the Jets passing game anyway, but the weather is a downgrade for QB Mitchell Trubisky and WR Taylor Gabriel. Short-range targets like TE Trey Burton and RB Tarik Cohen should be fine.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is not expected to play against the Jets today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The hope is a week off gets him right.," Rapoport adds. Robinson's absence leaves Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller, Kevin White and Josh Bellamy as Chicago's top 4 WRs. It should also mean a few extra targets for RB Tarik Cohen and TE Trey Burton.

Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. The rookie averaged 3.7 targets across his first 3 games. He's not a fantasy option but does put a slight dent into the target projections for Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Trey Burton.

Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. The rookie has averaged 3.7 targets per game this season. Expect those to be spread to Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Trey Burton.

Bears WR Taylor Gabriel has been lining up all over the formation early in training camp, including in the backfield. “How many ways can you use speed? You can use it in all type of different ways," Gabriel said. "So it’s just exciting and with [HC Matt] Nagy having Tyreek Hill, the things that he did with him, it’s very exciting." Hill just turned in a 9th-place PPR finish with Nagy in Kansas City, garnering 105 targets plus 17 carries. Conventional wisdom has had RB Tarik Cohen stepping into a Hill-esque role this year, but Gabriel could do some of it, too. He's certainly worth a late stab at his 19th-round ADP.

The Bears have rookie WR Anthony Miller "earmarked" to run from the slot this season, according to ESPN's Jeff Dickerson. That points to an immediate role for the 2nd-round rookie, but it also intimates WR Taylor Gabriel and WR Kevin White will compete for the starting outside spot opposite Allen Robinson. An intriguing Bears offense under new HC Matt Nagy and first-time OC Mark Helfrich makes all 3 wideouts worth considering near the end of best-ball drafts. We'll be watching to see how the fight for roles plays out.
