Alshon Jeffery, WR, Bears

2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Jun-26-2014 by Rob Warner
BEAST: Alshon Jeffery's sophomore season was one for the ages as he finished with 89 catches for 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns (major improvement over his rookie year: 24-367-3). The 13th overall pick from the 2012 draft is currently going one spot ahead of his teammate Brandon Marshall with an 14.79 ADP and ranked as the WR6 (both Bears WRs suited up for the NFC in last season's Pro Bowl).
Editor's note: The former South Carolina Gamecocks receiver is the real deal. With opposing defenses already focused on Matt Forte and Marshall, Jeffery is more or less unstoppable against one-on-one coverages. Could he be a little more consistent? Sure, every receiver runs hot and cold; however, the only reason to fade on him is if you feel he may not quite replicate last season's numbers. A small decline is a reasonable expectation, but a significant drop is very unlikely.

|10.12||FFToolbox - Jeb Gorham - I like Jay Cutler's arm when he is accurate and healthy. Alshon Jeffery has the potential to have a breakout season this year and that is why I picked him up. There has to be another option to Marshall and Jeffery will be that target. The only drawback might be Martellus Bennett's addition - he might steal some targets and receptions.|

July 2nd 2013
|10.01||KFFSC - I'm really excited to see what the Bears offense looks like this year. New coaches known for throwing the ball and his 2nd year in the league. I expect Jeffery to break out and become worth putting in my starting lineup as a flex on a weekly basis.|
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
|9.12||Bruno Boys - I got myself into a world of trouble by not taking my WR3 sooner so these two picks are my best attempt at cutting the losses. I took the lone remaining receiver on the board I thought was capable of putting up starter caliber numbers. With Trestman now in Chicago, it?s been emphasized that Brandon Marshall will no longer be option number one, two and three in the passing game. The ball will be spread around and Jeffery is the one most likely to benefit. It?s unclear exactly to what extent he?ll benefit but looking at Trestman?s other offenses, WR2 numbers wouldn't be unheard of for a player in his position. This was a sizable reach and my WR corps is a liability but with some luck one of my next few picks will rise to the occasion and helpout.|
