Stud, chicken littles that jump ship due to non-chronic injuries always lose in the end.

If only Eddie Lacy showed up to play football today, I would have had the lineup I envisioned in draft day. My trio of AJ Green, Alshon and Fitz will need to be broken up after one week. It was nice to have them together one time. Pleasantly surprised by Alshons numbers today.

If he plays im not getting cute. Im starting him.

I would say the same thing, except replace 'starting' with 'benching'

This is an interesting case study for something Chris Harris was talking about on a recent podcast regarding whether or not you start a stud his first game back from a significant injury.

He posed the question this way:

Which would hurt you more?

Starting him and taking a bad score.

Or benching him when he has a huge game.

I, like Chris Harris, would be more hurt by the latter, so I usually play guys like Alshon right away.

I will say thanks , this was the big thing that compelled me to start him

You're welcome. I'm glad it worked out for you.

Didn't work out for me with Foster in Week 4, but I don't regret starting him.

Obviously too small a sample size, but just for fun, since he's returned from injury, if you prorate his stats to a full season:

224 Targets, 149 Receptions, 2200 yards, 11 TDs

Imagine if he didnt drop 3 1st half passes.... unreal strength and ability to get off the line and in and out of breaks. Going to make a lot of $$ this offseason.

Not sure he'll want to stay in Chicago... but might they tag him?

Oh he will.

he will what? want to stay in chicago? you seem to think alshon and forte are just going to resign and they'll continue without a roster shakeup.

What are the chances Alshon wants out but Chicago franchises him?

I'd think it'd be a lock they would franchise tag him if he was not to resign.

DNP in practice today (11/12), groin from yesterday's practice per Fox

wow, what a tease... guy is a lock for 10+ targets every week and had been dominating opposition. brutal for those who had to wait out the 5 week absence earlier.

The guy in my league who owns Jeffery is looking at the prospect of starting Calvin, Walters and Britt this week with no way other than a trade to get a better option.

Meanwhile, I have three extra WRs that are viable: JMatt, Snead and Davante.

Might be worth it to trade two of them for Alshon.

We have no idea if it's serious, so let's relax and see what happens tomorrow. The guy lived on the injury report last year, but battled through. Let's hope it's a minor issue and he plays this weekend

A question for you Alshon owners.

Say you're out of contention for the playoffs in a PPR league and a team in contention is offering Keenan Allen + something more for Alshon.

What would that something more have to be in order for it to work?

For me I wouldn't consider Allen. Someone else in his range and an early to mid 1st I would.

i saw in the san diego game, they were double teaming alshon a lot. he still ended up with a solid night. I'm hoping the injury isn't serious and he keeps ballin'

He's not 100% but it's more game plan than Alshon. The Bears are running and throwing a lot of screen passes to offset the Rams pass rush. And it's working.

Glad I sat him. I didn't like the pre game warm up reports.

Lesson learned for me. I was flip flopping based on those reports, but ended up playing him. Aarghh!!! :wall:

Silver lining. He will probably be no worse for the wear and I need him after Edelman bit the dust.

Read he was only on the field for about half the snaps. The big lead could have caused this a little bit but who knows. Another bad matchup next week as well.

Alshon Jeffery now has a shoulder injury on top of his groin injury. John Fox said 17 was limited today. #Bears
