Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

Bears' WR Alshon Jeffery is expected to miss about one week with his mild calf strain, per a source -- good news for Chicago.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is good news for the Bears; it doesn't sound like the injury is serious. In PPR formats, Jeffery finished #8 in 2013 and #10 last year. With Brandon Marshall gone, there is no serious threat to his targets, so he should once again post WR1 numbers. Sure, Marc Trestman is gone, but it’s not like the Denver passing game suffered under Adam Gase. Jeffery will play the Demaryius Thomas role in Gase’s offense.
