Kliff Kingsbury hasn’t divulged exactly how he plans to utilize his pass catchers, but he’s said he wants to move Larry Fitzgerald around to keep defenses honest and that Christian Kirk will play a key role because of his talents and how well he knows the offense.
Beyond that, it remains to be seen what type of roles the rookies will play, although they all figure to get a chance to play a lot.
According to Kingsbury, it starts with Fitzgerald, who quickly developed a strong chemistry with Kyler Murray during offseason workouts, the story said. Fitz is expected to be used as a security blanket.
CHI WR Kevin White - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 1 vs. Atlanta Falcons
There wasn't a lot of hype surrounding Kevin White before the season, but after the injury to Cameron Meredith he became a "may as well draft him late, I guess" flier pick. A former seventh-overall pick, White is suddenly the most recognizable Bears wide receiver. This is now his third season in the league, but he's only played in four games throughout his career.
That's all an extended way of saying that it's hard to know exactly what White brings. He caught a few passes in the preseason, but not much to show us how he'll fit in as the No. 1 WR. He gets a decent matchup against Atlanta to start the season, but any Bears player not named Jordan Howard carries risk.
White should be viewed as a WR3/WR4 with some upside.
