Bears will place franchise tag on WR Alshon Jeffery

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

When Alshon Jeffery was on the field during the 2015 season, the wide receiver was almost unstoppable. The problem for the Bears is that Jeffery wasn't on the field that often.

Jeffery missed seven games in 2015 as he battled a series of calf, hamstring and groin injuries. Despite those injuries, the Bears have complete faith in Jeffery's health and they proved it on Friday by hitting him with the franchise tag, according to ESPN.com.

The tag will guarantee Jeffery a one-year deal that's expected to be worth more than $14.5 million. However, the exact dollar amount won't be known until the 2016 salary cap number is finalized by the NFL.

Fantasy Impact:

It was an injury-riddled fourth season for Jeffery, who was on the injury report in 10 of 16 games and ultimately ended up on injured reserve in Week 16. However, he was fantastic when he was (relatively) healthy, catching 7.1 passes for 111 yards and 0.40 TD (on 12.1 targets) in the seven games that he played at least 70% of the snaps. Jeffery just needs to stay healthy and he’ll produce as he did in 2013 and 2014, when he finished #9 and #12, respectively.
