Chicago Bears WR Rome Odunze lined up at all three positions (X, Z, and the slot) during the offseason program as the team is confident in his ability to run the necessary routes from each spot. The Bears also took a look at Odunze on punt returns, which is something he did in a limited capacity at the University of Washington.
Huddle Up: Expect plenty of hype surrounding Odunze, the ninth overall pick in April, leading up to Week 1, but don't get swept up in it. Keenan Allen and DJ Moore should be the top targets this season, barring injury, so don't consider the rookie as more than a WR5 with upside.

Chicago Bears WR Rome Odunze said he would like to break Los Angeles Rams WR Puka Nacua's rookie record of 1,486 yards in a season, according to The Chicago Sun-Times' Jason Lieser.
Huddle Up: Odunze will have a role in the passing game this season but may be behind DJ Moore and Keenan Allen in terms of targets during games. He should still be a solid option in fantasy leagues during his rookie season and could be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver for players.

Chicago Bears TE Cole Kmet (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Thursday, June 6.
Huddle Up: Kmet will have around six weeks to recover from any injuries and should be ready when training camp starts. He likely will be a No. 2 fantasy tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears TE Cole Kmet (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Wednesday, June 5. Head coach Matt Eberflus said Kmet was held out as a precaution.
Huddle Up: It seems like Kmet is dealing with a minor issue but may not be on the field again until training camp. He should be involved in the passing game this upcoming season and could be a low-end No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears RB D'Andre Swift is listed as the No. 1 running back on the team's depth chart and is likely to see a great deal of playing time in third-down and red zone situations, as well as on first and second downs, according to head coach Matt Eberflus.
Huddle Up: Although he should see a decent number of offensive snaps, Swift should not be considered a workhorse by any stretch, especially with the presence of RBs Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson on the roster. Swift should have weekly RB2 value, with RB1 upside, in his first season in Chicago.

Chicago Bears WR Rome Odunze (hamstring) took part in practice on Thursday, May 30, after missing most of the first week of organized team activities with a hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Odunze's rookie season will likely be capped if Keenan Allen and DJ Moore stay healthy, but he will still bring some value to the team as a contested-catch weapon and field-stretcher in that scenario in 2024. He is without question one of the top third receivers in the league and should be considered a strong fantasy option in any week Allen and Moore cannot play. Consider him a WR5 option now with WR3 upside.

Chicago Bears WR Rome Odunze (hamstring) did not participate in the voluntary workout Thursday, May 23, because of a hamstring injury he suffered during the rookie minicamp.
Huddle Up: The Bears are likely taking things slow with Odunze, but he may not be on the field again until training camp. He will be a top three receiver for the Bears this upcoming season and can be at least a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears WR Rome Odunze (hamstring) was absent from practice due to hamstring tightness Saturday, May 11.
Huddle Up: This will be something to monitor as soft-tissue injuries are never ideal this early. But there's still a lot of time left before training camp so managers should still view Odunze as a fringe WR3 option in fantasy.

Chicago Bears QB Caleb Williams was officially named the starter by head coach Matt Eberflus on Friday, May 10.
Huddle Up: The No. 1 overall pick is unsurprisingly the starter for the Bears. He has QB2 value with some QB1 upside in certain weeks considering the solid supporting staff around him.

Washington WR Rome Odunze was selected by the Chicago Bears with the ninth overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: The Bears have DJ Moore and Keenan Allen as their main receivers, but Odunze probably will be the No. 3 receiver for the Bears. He should see a handful of targets each game and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Southern California QB Caleb Williams was selected by the Chicago Bears with the first overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Williams should start right away for the Bears and will have a solid group of pass catchers to work with during his rookie season. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback at this point but has the chance to become a low-end No. 1 by the end of the season.

Chicago Bears WR Keenan Allen is entering the final year of his current contract, but general manager Ryan Poles said he believes the two sides can reach an extension at some point.
Huddle Up: Allen dealt with injuries this past season but is still one of the better receivers in the NFL when healthy. He will be working with a rookie quarterback in 2024 but can still be a starting option in all fantasy leagues if healthy.

The Chicago Bears are acquiring WR Keenan Allen from the Los Angeles Chargers in exchange for a fourth-round pick.
Huddle Up: Assuming the Bears select a quarterback with the No. 1 pick, Allen should be a reliable safety valve for the rookie.

Updating a previous report, impending free-agent TE Gerald Everett (Chargers) reportedly agreed to terms on a two-year contract worth $12 million with the Chicago Bears on Tuesday, March 12. The deal could be worth up to $14 million including incentives and includes $6.1 million fully guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Everett's money is not exactly chump change, which means he figures to see plenty of playing time. That means Cole Kmet's fantasy value will take a hit even if new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron utilizes a lot of 12 personnel looks. Both tight ends could fall into the TE2 range if Chicago ends up adding a quality receiver in the first or second round of the draft. For now, consider Kmet a low-end TE1 and Everett a decent TE2 in fantasy.

Philadelphia Eagles impending free agent RB D'Andre Swift agreed to a three-year deal worth $24 million with the Chicago Bears, according to sources Monday, March 11. The deal includes $15.3 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Coming off a career season, Swift will now take over as the RB1 in Chicago. Second-year back Roschon Johnson will serve as a change-of-pace back, but Swift should have weekly RB2 value with RB1 upside in Chicago.

USC QB Caleb Williams will meet with teams at the NFL Scouting Combine but won't participate in throwing drills. He'll wait to throw at his Pro Day.
Huddle Up: Williams is expected to be the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft, either by the Chicago Bears, or a team trading for him. He'll be an upside QB2 option in single-year formats.

Chicago Bears TE Cole Kmet (forearm) said he suffered a fractured forearm during the regular season finale but does not need surgery. He said he will be fine for the start of offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Kmet was an important part of the passing game this past season and should continue to have a big role next season especially if the Bears have a rookie quarterback. Kmet can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen expects to be back with the team in 2024. "I don't see myself going anywhere," he said on Thursday, Feb. 1.
Huddle Up: Allen has a massive $34.71 million cap hit in 2024, which is why speculation has run rampant about the Chargers possibly wanting to part ways. However, the 31-year-old showed he still has plenty left in the tank after tallying 1,243 yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games. As long as he doesn't get moved to a worse situation, Allen will be a WR1 option in 2024.

Huddle Up: Swift probably will receive a majority of the work in the running game and could also see a few targets in the passing game as well. He has been productive for fantasy players this season and should be a starting option in leagues this week.
