  • Ryan Mundy suffers 'serious stinger' in Wk 3
    Bears SS Ryan Mundy suffered a "serious stinger" in Monday night's Week 3 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Mundy exited early in the first half. Prior to leaving, he returned an interception 45 yards for a touchdown. The Bears lost both Mundy and FS Chris Conte (shoulder) to injuries against the Jets. Career special teamer Danny McCray and rookie Brock Vereen were forced to step in. The safety spots remain question marks in the Windy City. Mundy has never missed a game in six seasons. Rotoworld.com

    Brandon Marshall caught 1-of-6 targets for six yards in the Bears' Week 3 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Marshall entered the night questionable due to his ankle injury. And in the second quarter, he re-tweaked the ankle while blocking. Marshall missed about seven minutes of game action but returned to play the entire second half. He clearly wasn't 100 percent, and the offense went through Alshon Jeffery. Marshall will need to be watched again on a short week prior to next Sunday's showdown with the Packers at home. He'll likely be questionable once again. Rotoworld.com

He won't have any fantasy value unless one of Alshon Jeffery or Brandon Marshall gets injured. Even then, at age 30, there won't be a ton of upside. Rotoworld.com

On his second-quarter 19-yard touchdown, Kerley beat slot CB Isaiah Frey and was wide open in the end zone. He and Geno Smith hooked up three times on the drive. Kerley is an underrated slot receiver with sticky mitts. He should be owned in deeper PPR leagues. Kerley gets to go against a weak Lions secondary in Week 4. Rotoworld.com

He's dominated at the beginning of the season in the red zone the past three years before tailing off the final 2-3 months.

Johnson was outplayed big time by Chris Ivory in this one, and has been through the first three games of the season. Ivory's touches should continue to rise, and it could come at Johnson's expense.

Jeffery also drew a 33-yard DPI penalty against Darrin Walls. Both plays led to scores for the Bears. Jeffery could have caught a touchdown, but Jay Cutler overshot him on a 2nd-and-3 pass in the end zone. Jeffery looked like his hamstring wasn't a problem. He'll be a WR1/2 next week vs. Green Bay.

    Advice: He added four catches for 52 yards. Ivory entered the season with five career catches across 39 games, but he now has five grabs through three contests. Chris Johnson continues to get the starts over Ivory, with each splitting touches, but it's clear Ivory is the more talented back. Jets beat writers even notice that the offense needs to go through Ivory. He's not afraid of contact and runs as hard as any back in the league. Entering the night, Ivory was averaging 4.4 YPC after contact. If the Jets are smart, they'll increase Ivory's touches at Johnson's expense. Ivory gets a tough Detroit run defense in Week 4.

    Eddie Lacy was bottled up in the Packers' Week 3 loss to the Lions, rushing 11 times for only 36 yards, also losing a fumble.

    Advice: He added one catch for nine yards, and was also stopped for a safety. The fumble was Lacy's first since last Week 1. Lacy looked a bit lethargic today, but a good run defense - Lacy has faced three of the league's best in the season's first three weeks - can do that. Things finally open up in Week 4, where the Pack travel to Chicago to take on the Bears' bottom-three run unit. The Bears will be playing on a short week. Lacy should finally start earning his RB1 money. Frustration is understandable, but trading Lacy now would be the ultimate sell low. There should be much better days ahead. Rotoworld.com

  • Eddie Lacy finds tough sledding again
    Eddie Lacy rushed 13 times for 43 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Jets.

    Advice: Lacy's Week 1 concussion was in the rearview mirror, but a rough matchup was not. The Jets' elite front seven gave up no holes and were sure-handed in their tackles, leading to a long run of 10 yards for Lacy. He missed out on a goal-line chance when Aaron Rodgers went play-action from the 1-yard line and hit Randall Cobb for a score. Lacy has another very difficult in Week 3 against the Lions, but then gets two good spots against the Bears and Vikings. Owners need to hang on tight and wait for the tide to turn. Rotoworld.com

  • Alshon Jeffery officially active for Week 2
    Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is active for Sunday night's game against the 49ers.

    Advice: Jeffery was cleared after getting through pre-game warmups without issue. He practiced on a limited basis Friday, and shouldn't be on a snap count. Brandon Marshall (ankle) is also active. Rotoworld.com

  • Marshall, Alshon Jeffery active for Week 2
    Brandon Marshall (ankle) is active for Sunday night's game against the 49ers.

    Advice: Marshall will play despite missing practice all week. Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) has also been cleared and will start opposite Marshall. Both players looked good during pre-game warmups and aren't expected to be on limited snaps. Santonio Holmes will play the outside in three-wide sets. Rotoworld.com

  • Eddie Lacy ready to go for Packers
    Eddie Lacy (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

    Advice: Lacy quickly progressed through the concussion protocols, getting a full week of practice in. He's ready to rock as a battering ram, although the Jets' front seven has the potential to be suffocating. The Packers inactives: Scott Tolzien, Demetri Goodson, Carl Bradford, Brad Jones, Bryan Bulaga, Jeff Janis and Jayrone Elliott. Rotoworld.com

  • Beat writer guesses one of Bear WRs will play
    Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune's "hunch" is that one of the Bears' starting wide receivers plays Sunday night against the 49ers, but doesn't provide a guess as to whom it will be.

    Advice: We would add however, that ESPN's Adam Schefter stated Sunday he would be "really" surprised if Alshon Jeffery (hamstring, questionable) played. Our guess all along has been that Brandon Marshall (ankle, questionable) had a better shot of suiting up against San Francisco, but obviously there were never and are still never any guarantees. Just from reading tea leaves, we'd advise fantasy owners to sit tight with Marshall while handcuffing him with Santonio Holmes. Jeffery owners should explore early-game alternatives. Rotoworld.com

  • Alshon Jeffery appears doubtful for SNF at SF
    A source informed ESPN's Adam Schefter that both Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) are "75 percent" certain to miss Sunday Night Football against the 49ers.

    Advice: They're both likely to be game-time decisions. Jeffery got in a limited practice Friday, while Marshall missed the entire work week. If neither can go, Santonio Holmes will fill the No. 1 receiver hole for Jay Cutler and become an intriguing WR3 option. Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte would also play expanded roles. Rotoworld.com

  • Santonio Holmes assured of playing
    Santonio Holmes is the only Bears receiver assured of playing in Week 2.

    Advice: Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are questionable after barely practicing this week, while Josh Morgan is doubtful after suffering a late-week setback with his groin injury. Holmes saw five targets on Opening Day against the Bills. He's someone to consider as a FanDuel punt play in tournaments. Rotoworld.com

  • Eddie Lacy listed probable for Week 2 vs. NYJ
    Eddie Lacy (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 2 against the Jets.

    Advice: Fire Lacy up for fantasy lineups. He has a tough test against the Jets' strong defensive front, but remains on the back end of the RB1 map. Lacy isn't an ideal FanDuel play in a game the Packers will likely attack the Jets through the air. Rotoworld.com

  • Eddie Lacy going back to his old helmet style
    After wearing Riddell's new SpeedFlex concussion-resistent helmet Week 1 against the Seahawks and suffering a concussion, Eddie Lacy is going back to his rookie-year helmet.

    Advice: Lacy took a thundering helmet-to-helmet hit from headhunter Brandon Meriweather in Week 2 last season, sidelining Lacy with his first NFL concussion. He now believes the helmet wasn't the problem. This really has nothing to do with Lacy's performance. He's fully expected to start against the Jets on Sunday. Lacy is our No. 10 running back for Week 2 against a strong D-line. Rotoworld.com
