Bears WR Eddie Royal (illness, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 17. With Royal out, Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani and Cameron Meredith figure to lead the Chicago receivers in snaps. Bellamy has the most appeal from a Sneaky Start standpoint.

Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 16. Looks like Jeffery is out for Week 16. Jay Cutler is less appealing as a streaming play, though he’s been decent (230 yards, 1.3 TD, 17 rushing yards) in the four games without Jeffery in the lineup this year. Eddie Royal becomes a decent desperation play, though he hasn’t cracked the 50-yard mark or scored a touchdown since Week 4. Marc Mariani and Josh Bellamy probably will round out the receiving corps.

Bears WR Marquess Wilson (foot, out) missed practice again Friday and is out for Week 13. With Wilson out, Marc Mariani, Josh Bellamy and Cameron Meredith will pick up the scraps after Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett and Zachary Miller have had their fill.

Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

He's been called a journeyman and a survivor.

Both fit veteran wide receiver Derek Hagan, who's just glad he got a call from the Titans last month. Now it's safe to call him something else — a contender.

Hagan didn't play in 2013 after the Buccaneers released him following training camp. He continued to train, but wondered whether he'd get another shot. Then the Titans, who saw a couple of their undrafted wideouts go down with injuries, asked him to town for a workout. They signed him to a one-year deal.

Is it realistic to think Hagan could make the roster? Anyone who watched the 6-foot-2, 210-pounder participate in minicamp last month saw that he definitely looked the part.

"You can just tell he knows what he is doing," cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson said. "He knows how to get open and things like that. He really impressed me right off the bat."

Fantasy Impact:

According to the story, one thing working in Hagan's favor is there are no locks to make the Titans roster after Nate Washington, Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter. Michael Preston and Marc Mariani are considered next in line, while another journeyman, Brian Robiskie, also is trying to continue his career. Hagan is a ways away from being fantasy relevant, however.
