Alshon Jeffery Fantasy News

The team held out Jeffery as a precautionary measure after the second-year receiver suffered a minor hamstring injury last week during organized team activities. Wilson also missed because of what coach Marc Trestman called a “light” hamstring tweak. Marshall participated in the first day of minicamp, but the Bears want to be careful with how they handle his recovery from offseason arthroscopic hip surgery.

“I just wanted to learn from someone different and do things different,” Jeffery said. “Plus, he’s a Pro Bowl player. I want to see what it takes.”
When he arrived at Fit Speed, Jeffery weighed in at 225 pounds with a body fat percentage of 11 or 12 percent. When he checked out a few weeks ago, Jeffery weighed 219 pounds with eight percent body fat.
“Alshon made tremendous strides,” said Matt Gates, Fit Speed’s co-owner and director. “He’s a really good kid, a really hard worker. He doesn’t say much, but I like that.”
Keep Jeffery in mind as a sleeper as a starter opposite Marshall in the Bears offense, which should get a shot in the arm with the arrival of sharp offensive mind Marc Trestman as head coach.

Although Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall remains on crutches following arthroscopic hip surgery, he said he plans to mentor second-year wideout Alshon Jeffery this offseason and will begin training with him on Monday in South Florida.
"I'm excited because this kid has the potential to be an All-Pro one year," Marshall said of Jeffery Thursday on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN Chicago 1000. "If he just changes some little things, the way he approaches the game as far as physically and mentally, he's going to be a beast. Because he has that dog in him, he has that in him, that you want in a receiver ... a guy who is going to make plays for you.
"For me, I always started training the week after the Super Bowl, and he's going into his second year so it shouldn't be a problem for him. As I'm getting a little older, I have to change the way I attack it. Starting off, our routines will be a little different, but just getting him with the right people, nutritionists, trainer, chiropractors and all that stuff. (It's about) showing him the other side of the business, showing him it's not just about coming to work and going on the field. There is so much more to the game that will allow you to be successful if you just do it. I'm excited to have this position."
Jeffery's PPG (6.1) equates to the #45 WR, so he had WR4 value on a per game basis. He has some upside in 2013 given the changes in Chicago and Marshall's investment in him.

The Bears originally said Jeffery would be out 2-4 weeks following the procedure. The rookie wide receiver did some light running to test out the knee on Saturday and ran routes half-speed during pregame warmups before the Bears' 23-17 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Alshon Jeffery (knee) was inactive for the game.
Jeffery is moving closer to returning from a minor knee procedure he underwent on Nov. 21 that was expected to sideline him for 2-4 weeks. The rookie wideout did some light running on Saturday and ran routes during pregame warmups on Sunday. There is a chance he is cleared to resume practicing at some point this week.
