Bears WR Kendall Wright (shoulder) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Wright will be fine to face Pittsburgh. Adam Thielen managed 5 catches for 44 yards out of the slot with Case Keenum throwing the ball, so Wright is a solid be to post 10+ fantasy points in PPR formats.

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Bears confirmed that wide receiver Kevin White is headed to injured reserve for the third time in three NFL seasons.

White left Sunday’s loss to the Falcons with an injury to his shoulder and Bears coach John Fox announced on Monday that the wideout suffered a fractured scapula. White will be placed on injured reserve and there’s still a determination to be made about whether or not he needs surgery.

Fantasy Impact:

White was playing in just his fifth NFL game. The team will now lean on Wright, Thompson and Wheaton as likely the top-three WRs.

Bears WR Cameron Meredith has torn ACL, 'other damage'

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Bears wide receiver Cameron Meredith hurt his knee early in Sunday’s game against the Titans and word out of the locker room at halftime was that the team’s doctors thought Meredith tore his ACL.

Meredith had further tests done to confirm that diagnosis and the news didn’t get any better after the results came in. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Meredith does have a torn ACL and that he also suffered “other damage” to his knee that will require other tests.

Fantasy Impact:

This is an injury that looked bad from the beginning so it's not a shocking turn of events. Meredith was the team's leading WR last year. The hope for the Bears is White steps up and lives up to his first-round potential. As we said in an earlier story from today, Wheaton and Wright look to be next up on the Bears depth chart after White.

Bears Beat: a look at the WR depth chart

Kevin White has to take over for Cameron Meredith, plain and simple. The Bears invested the seventh overall pick of the draft in White back in 2015, but up to this point, the team has almost nothing to show for it. White has played in just four regular season games because of two separate fractures in his leg, but he’s practiced virtually every day this summer. It’s now or never. At 6-foot-3, 216 pounds, White is built like a Pro Bowler. Now it’s time to play like one.

Fantasy Impact:

The story listed Wheaton, Wright, Thompson and Gentry as the 2-5 receivers. Victor Cruz is also in the mix but the story said Cruz just hasn't made an impact. Wheaton is guaranteed to make $6 million so the story said he's making the team, however he's been injury. Wright, meanwhile, has had a good camp and is expected to make the 53-man roster as well.

Bears WR Cameron Meredith carted off after a knee injury

Bears WR Cam Meredith is about to get carted off. Just awful. Last thing you want to see. His left knee was bent in a bad way.

Related players: Kevin White, Kendall Wright, Deonte Thompson, Markus Wheaton, Victor Cruz

Fantasy Impact:

The hits just keep on coming. Meredith was shaping up as an excellent middle-round value but now his Week 1 (and season) status are in serious question. Kevin White and Kendall Wright will probably be the two most fantasy relevant receivers on the Bears' roster if Meredith misses time.

Bears sign WR Kendall Wright

Bears agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth up to $4m with WR Kendall Wright, source said.

Fantasy Impact:

Wright had 94 catches for 1079 yards and two touchdowns on 139 targets in his second season, but it’s been pretty downhill since then. He gained 715 yards in 2014, 408 yards in 2015 and finally 416 yards last year. He’ll provide depth behind presumed starters Cameron Meredith and Kevin White.

WR Kendall Wright's thinks Titans career likely over

Tuesday, January 3, 2017, 9:32am

ESPN - [Full Article]

At his peak, Kendall Wright was a top NFL receiver, pulling in 94 catches for 1,079 yards in 2013.

He’s moved steadily downhill since then and the 20th pick of the 2012 draft was a healthy scratch for the Tennessee Titans in their finale, which he seems certain was his last game with the franchise.

“[Sunday] I saw the 2017 Tennessee Titans and I’m not a part of the 2017 Tennessee Titans, that’s probably the plan,” he said. “So, it is what it is. I respect everybody in the building.”

His 29 catches ranked fifth on the team and were the fewest of his career.

Fantasy Impact:

The current Titans regime saw Wright as a slot receiver, but the team used three wide receivers on fewer snaps than any team in the NFL. The story pointed out Wright is likeable guy who can make some electric plays as he did for the Titans in the wins over the Browns and Jaguars. But he can be complicated and it all came to seem like too much work to make things go with him heavily involved.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (hamstring) could return Week 4

Tuesday, September 27, 2016, 5:35pm - [Full Article]

Kendall Wright is tired of answering the questions, and tired of watching from the sideline.

The Titans receiver is ready to return to action.

It sounds like this could be the week.

“I think there's no limitations on (Kendall) come Wednesday,’’ Titans coach Mike Mularkey said on Monday.

Fantasy Impact:

Wright hasn't played because of a hamstring injury from early in camp. The story said he was a star of the offseason. He's expected to work out of the slot which should give a boost to the struggling passing game.
