Bears WR Chase Claypool (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Lions. He’s not a recommended fantasy play, but his return is good news for QB Justin Fields. WR Dante Pettis (ankle) is also active.

Bears WR Chase Claypool (knee) logged limited practice on Friday and is officially listed as questionable for Week 17 vs. the Lions. The midseason acquisition hasn't appeared in a game since Week 13 vs. the Packers due to injury. Teammate WR Equanimeous St. Brown practiced fully and doesn't carry an injury designation, while WR Dante Pettis (ankle) is questionable. Despite a quality fantasy matchup against a Lions defense that ranks as the 4th-best matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to WRs, it's wise to sit these wideouts in fantasy championships. The Bears and QB Justin Fields have only surpassed 200 passing yards in a game once this season. The only Bears pass-catcher that warrants fantasy consideration is TE Cole Kmet, best viewed as a low-end TE1.

Bears WR Chase Claypool (knee) managed to log limited participation in practice on Thursday. Fellow WR Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) also practiced in a limited fashion. Neither player practiced at all on Wednesday, so this is certainly a step in the right direction. We'll continue to track the health of the Bears WR corps ahead of Week 17's game vs. the Lions on Sunday.

Bears WR Chase Claypool (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. Fellow WR Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) also did not participate. Neither player suited up for Week 16 due to these injuries. Their availability for Week 17 vs. the Lions is up in the air as of now, but there's still a whole week of practice ahead of them. We'll keep an eye on this situation.

Bears WR Chase Claypool (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bills. With WRs Darnell Mooney and Equanimeous St. Brown also out, Chicago is down to WRs Byron Pringle, Dante Pettis, Velus Jones and N’Keal Harry.
