Shaheen goes to Bears | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Bears nabbed Ashland TE Adam Shaheen with the 45th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. Shaheen becomes the 4th player in NFL history drafted from Ashland. He dominated there, totaling 127 catches, 1,670 yards and 26 TDs over the past 2 seasons. Then he proved he belongs in the NFL by testing as a 68th percentile athlete for his position. The 6’6, 278-pounder clocked a 4.79-second 40 time — impressive for such a big dude — and was even better with a 121-inch broad jump and 7.09-second 3-cone. Shaheen joins QB Mitchell Trubisky in Chicago but is a long shot for 2017 fantasy value. We’ll see if the Bears hang on to TE Zach Miller after adding TE Dion Sims in free agency.

The Dolphins acquired TE Adam Shaheen from the Bears in exchange for a conditional 7th-round pick. The 45th overall pick of the 2017 draft was a colossal bust in Chicago, mustering just 26 catches over the past 3 seasons. We'll see if he can revive his career in Miami. Shaheen is still just 26 and goes 6'7, 278 pounds with 68th percentile athleticism.

The Bears have placed TE Adam Shaheen (foot, ankle) on IR. GM Ryan Pace suggested that Shaheen could be designated-to-return and play later this season, but he's obviously not worth a roster spot in redraft leagues. TE Trey Burton looks set to be close to an every-down player and a big piece of Chicago's passing game.

Bears TE Adam Shaheen has been diagnosed with a low-ankle sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's relatively good news considering the injury looked much worse when it happened in Saturday night's preseason game. Per Rapoport, Shaheen has a chance to be ready for Week 1. The 2nd-year TE was having an impressive preseason before going down. He's behind Trey Burton in the pecking order and isn't a great bet for consistent fantasy production this season. But Shaheen's return will be good news for QB Mitchell Trubisky.

Bears TE Adam Shaheen left the field on a cart Saturday night after hurting his right ankle against the Broncos. The fear is a potential fracture, though HC Matt Nagy said "I don't think so" when asked whether Shaheen had broken a bone. The 2nd-year TE is headed for more testing Sunday morning, according to the Chicago Tribune. Shaheen won't be much of a fantasy factor even if he emerges OK, but he could siphon some red-zone looks from TE Trey Burton in 2-TE alignments. We'll keep an eye on this situation.

Bears TE Adam Shaheen (chest) is inactive for today’s game against the Vikings. Dion Sims and Daniel Brown will continue to share TE duties. Neither is a fantasy option.
