Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson said Thursday, Jan. 30, he's open to signing an extension with the team this offseason, as he prepares to head into his contract year. 'I want to be in Chicago, if they'll have me,' Robinson said. 'The biggest thing is, I can't make that happen solely myself. I just gotta control what I can control. I know that everything will probably play out fine.'
Huddle Up: Robinson totaled 1,147 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while catching 98 of 154 targets in 2019. Both figures were his highest in the respective categories since his Pro Bowl 2015 campaign with the Jacksonville Jaguars. While he could likely benefit from an upgrade at the quarterback position on a new team, he does just fine as the No. 1 option in Chicago's passing game. He'll remain a WR2 in all formats for at least the 2020 season.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) had surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in his left shoulder. The recovery time is expected to be two months.
Huddle Up: Trubisky will enter a make-or-break year. He could be a post-hype QB2 that you can bank on if they surround him with more at the receiver spot.

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel could be released this offseason since the team could save $4.5 million in salary cap space.
Huddle Up: Gabriel struggled with concussions this season but can be a role in an offense because of his playmaking abilities. He probably will be avoided in most fantasy leagues no matter where he plays in 2020.

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson finished with 98 catches on a career-high 154 targets for 1,147 yards and seven touchdowns this season, ranking seventh in the NFL in receptions and third in targets.
Huddle Up: After struggling to return to form following a knee injury, Robinson had his best season since a 1,400-yard, 14-touchdown campaign in 2015. He's become the unquestioned go-to option in the Chicago passing attack, and he looks like a reliable WR2 heading into 2020.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) will need surgery on his left shoulder for the second time in as many offseasons after injuring it returning a kickoff in Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Miller has flashed big-time talent when healthy, but his left shoulder has been a problem almost from the moment he stepped onto the field as a rookie last season. The Memphis product started this season slow recovering from his previous shoulder surgery - as well as an ankle issue - but averaged 5.7 receptions and 72 yards in Chicago's last six games once Taylor Gabriel was no longer in the picture. Assuming Miller recovers well this offseason, he is worth considering as a WR4 in drafts next season.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hip) recently underwent surgery on his injured hip, according to general manager Ryan Pace.
Huddle Up: Burton flashed occasionally in 2018, but his two-year stint with the Bears has been riddled with injury and inconsistency. (It's fair to wonder how much Mitchell Trubisky has to do with the latter.) With two years left on his four-year. $32 million deal, it wouldn't be surprising to see Chicago give him one more chance in 2020. As far as his fantasy value is concerned, however, owners in most leagues can ignore him for the time being.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky will remain the starting quarterback in 2020.
Huddle Up: Trubisky regressed in his third year, and this may be his last shot with the club. He'll be a midrange QB2 with a chip on his shoulder next season.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 17 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation to see if Miller has a chance to return. Miller played well during the second half of the season and should be a starter for the Bears next season. He will have value in all fantasy leagues next season.

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and has been ruled out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller will be the main targets in the passing game this week, and both players should be starting options in fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 25. The Bears did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Gabriel still has not been cleared to play, so he may miss another game because of the concussion. Fantasy players should look for other options and can avoid Gabriel.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller caught one of his two targets for two yards in Week 16 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners are sure to blame Miller, but Mitchell Trubisky barely looked his way - a problem since Kansas City has locked down perimeter receivers most of the season but struggled at times to effectively guard the slot. Prior to this dud, Miller had top 70 yards and/or scored a touchdown in four straight. Until Trubisky either can become more consistent or Chicago finds a more capable quarterback, Miller may not be able to be anything more than a high-upside WR3.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen carried twice for eight yards and hauled in three of his four targets for 25 yards in Week 16 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: It's hard to understand how a playmaker in the passing game like Cohen barely saw the ball in a game in which Chicago was playing with negative game script virtually all night long, but there's not a lot of things making sense when it comes to the Bears' offense in 2019. He'll be little more than a risky flex option in Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery ran 13 times for 57 yards and caught his only target for two yards in Week 16 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Two of Montgomery's most distinguishing features at Iowa State were his ability to break tackles and run through contact on the second level of the defense. The sad reality is that ability has been pretty much wasted in 2019 as the Bears cannot block well enough in order to let him take advantage of his gifts. Then again, Mitchell Trubisky's inability to threaten defenses is helping his cause either. Montgomery will be a low-end RB2 at best in Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky went 18-of-34 for 157 yards and ran for 20 yards on six carries in Week 16 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: The Sunday Night Football crew was trying hard to sell Trubisky's motivation for proving the Bears right - at least for one night - for taking him over Patrick Mahomes in the 2017 draft. It didn't happen, to say the least. In three years, all Trubisky has proven is that he is a capable runner that needs a lot of help from his coaching staff and supporting cast in order to move the offense. He'll be a middling QB2 in Week 17 versus the Minnesota Vikings.

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) missed a third straight day of practice Friday, Dec. 20, and has been ruled out of Week 16.
Huddle Up: Gabriel hasn't played since Week 12, and in his stead Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller have stepped up as weekly WR fantasy assets.

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Gabriel is still going through the concussion protocol and likely will miss another game if he does not practice this week. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller posted nine receptions for 118 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers on 15 targets.
Huddle Up: Miller has had injury issues since coming into the league, but when he has been healthy he has shown an ability to make plays. He could be a decent fantasy option if he can stay on the field for an entire season.

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson registered seven receptions for 125 yards on 14 targets in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Robinson saw his three-game touchdown streak come to an end, but he was able to post his third 100-yard game of the season. He has four or more grabs in 13 of his 14 outings this season, too, serving as a solid PPR fantasy option. He'll look to finish up strong in Week 16 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed eight times for 28 yards in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers while adding seven grabs for 57 yards on 10 targets.
Huddle Up: Cohen had a lot of touches, but he didn't do much with the workload. He remains nothing more than a flex fantasy option heading into Week 16 and beyond.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery rushed 14 times for 39 yards in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers while adding one grab for 10 yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Montgomery has shown some signs of being effective, but he has a lot of inconsistency. We'll see if he can handle the load in 2020, but he is looking more and more like a flex fantasy option for the rest of this season.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 29-of-53 passes for 334 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers. He also ran for 29 yards.
Huddle Up: The Bears managed to do a little better offensively than Week 1 against the Packers, but they were still lacking. Trubisky remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) remained out of practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Gabriel still needs to progress through, and clear, the league's concussion protocol. He shouldn't be a fantasy concern in any format at this point of the season.

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Gabriel still needs to pass all of his concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so his status for Week 15 is uncertain. Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller are the only Bears receivers that should be used in fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears TE J.P. Holtz had three receptions for a team-high 56 yards in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Holtz and Jesper Horsted (four catches, 36 yards) put together probably the most dynamic game the Bears have had from the tight end position this year, which is equal parts an accomplishment and an indictment of Trey Burton and Adam Shaheen. It's probably too bold of a move to consider this late in the season, but Green Bay has struggled throughout 2019 against opposing tight ends...

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller caught three passes for 42 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: After teasing fantasy owners earlier this season, Miller looks to have arrived as the clear No. 2 target behind Allen Robinson, racking up 24 receptions, 313 yards and a TD in his last four games. Miller is still a WR3/flex type receiver, but he's worth owning in all leagues.

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson tallied five receptions, 48 yards and two touchdowns against the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: While other Bears receivers have risen and fallen this year, Robinson has been consistently the top guy with nearly 900 receiving yards and seven touchdowns on the season, including four in the last three games. He should be a borderline WR2/WR3 candidate over the season's final few weeks.
