WR Velus Jones Jr. - CHI (1 Viewer)

Verlus Jones (hamstring) was limited in Thursday's practice.​

This is the closest the Bears have come to seeing Jones potentially active on game day, as he has posted back-to-back limited sessions and even had a limited session last Friday. It probably won't matter for the sake of fantasy leagues unless Jones is used extensively as a gadget rusher, but that can't be ruled out completely. At this point, though, it'd be hard to start him without seeing him healthy and watching him seize that kind of offensive role.

Very disappointing when these rookies start their careers out hurt before they even get in a game. Does not bode well for the future

Velus Jones (hamstring) is questionable for Week 4 against the Giants.​

Jones was upgraded to a full participant in practice on Friday. Week 4 should be his NFL debut. Once up to speed, Jones should supplant Equanimeous St. Brown as the Bears' No. 2 receiver. That may give the offense a slight boost, but Jones himself won't be viable for fantasy purposes. The Bears rank dead last in pass attempts and yards per game.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Velus Jones (hamstring) is expected to play Week 4 against the Giants.​

The third-round rookie missed the first three weeks with a hamstring issue, so this will be his NFL debut. Unfortunately, he is debuting for an offense that has thrown a grand total of 45 passes through three weeks, 34 fewer than the Falcons in 31st place. Unlikely to see a lot of volume, Jones is just a stash in deep leagues and Dynasty formats.

Great news - I expect fields may throw for over 100 yards against the Giants. Make sure you put him in your lineups
