Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) will not participate in the offseason workouts because he is recovering from sports hernia surgery he had a few months ago. The team hopes he will be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Burton is coming off a season where he posted 569 yards and six touchdowns. He should see a solid amount of targets in 2019 and could be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) said Friday, April 5 that he painfully dislocated his left shoulder 'maybe five or six times' during his rookie season. He had surgery to repair a torn labrum in January, and he has been rehabbing at his alma mater at the University of Memphis. He doesn' expected to practice much in the offseason until he is fully healed.
Huddle Up: Miller is determined to take a big step forward in his second NFL season, and he could be quite the sleeper in the the middle to late rounds on draft day. His rehab is reportedly going well, and he should be able to surpass the 33 catches, 423 yards and seven touchdowns he posted in 2018.

New England Patriots impending free-agent WR Cordarrelle Patterson agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, March 12, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Patterson is a jack of all trades and an enticing weapon in Matt Nagy's creative offense. He'll need to share the ball with Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller, Tarik Cohen and others, but Patterson is worth a late-round flier.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) might not be 100 percent until training camp after undergoing surgery in January to fix his injured left shoulder. General manager Ryan Pace said Miller 'could be limited' in organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp this spring.
Huddle Up: It sounds like there is no worry of Miller being ready for the season, but they might hold him out of OTAs and minicamp. Fantasy owners wouldn't mind that, as he would be preserved for training camp and the preseason. Miller managed seven TDs in 2018, and he might be a nice late-round pick in many drafts later this summer if he gets back to 100 percent.

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson saw eight or more targets in two of his first nine games in 2018 but was targeted eight or more times in three of the last four regular season games. He also saw 13 targets in the playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Robinson underwhelmed in his first year in Chicago, finishing with 55 catches for 754 yards and four scores. However, the solid finish gives fantasy owners reason to be optimistic, and he will still be the No. 1 option in the Chicago passing attack. Robinson could be an underrated WR3 in 2019.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) should not miss significant time during the offseason following his upcoming shoulder surgery, according to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, who believes Miller will be ready to go at or near the start of the team's offseason program.
Huddle Up: Biggs also mentioned he thought Miller could double his receptions and receiving yards in Year 2, which would put him in the neighborhood of 70 catches and 900 yards -- solid production assuming he continues to make things happen in the red zone. There's more upside with Miller than anyone else in the Bears receiving group, and he could emerge as a legit weekly starter if he continues to develop.

New England Patriots WR Cordarrelle Patterson rushed for three yards on one carry against the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round playoff game. He was targeted once in the passing game but finished with zero receptions.
Huddle Up: Patterson has been involved in the running and passing game this season and has posted at least 50 total yards in three of the last five games. He could be a flex option in some playoff fantasy leagues since there are not a lot of options available but is not a must-start option.

New England Patriots WR Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 10, and has been removed from the injury list for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Patterson could be involved in the running and passing game this week but likely will only see a handful of touches. He could be a flex option in some leagues but can also be benched if owners have better options available.

New England Patriots WR Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 9.
Huddle Up: During the regular season Patterson wasn't much of a fantasy option, but in postseason pools he has some WR4 or flex appeal, especially as he battles Phillip Dorsett for the No. 3 duties with Josh Gordon no longer in the picture. Patterson could also have an impact in the return game this weekend.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) said Monday, Jan. 7, that he missed the club's Wild Card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 6, after he 'started to feel something' in his groin following practice Friday, Jan. 4, despite initially having no limitations. By Saturday, Jan. 5, it had 'locked up,' which he said was his 'body's way of handling threats' to his health.
Huddle Up: Burton's presence was sorely missed against the Eagles, as Bears tight ends only managed to combine for five catches for 28 yards in his absence. The 27-year-old is coming off a solid debut campaign in Chicago in which he posted career highs across the board, recording 54 catches for 569 yards and six touchdowns. He's firmly in the TE1 picture going into drafts next year.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller finished with three receptions for 34 yards on five targets in the NFC Wild Card Game playoff loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Miller wrapped up his rookie season with 33 receptions, 423 yards and seven touchdowns, showing glimpses of brilliance which made him a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He has a ton of upside and will be a dangerous slot receiver in this league and a good play for PPR fantasy league players going forward.

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel posted four receptions for 37 yards on nine targets in the NFC Wild Card Game playoff loss against the Philadelphia Eagles and he added 20 rushing yards on two attempts.
Huddle Up: Gabriel was a fairly vital cog in the Chicago offense in 2018, posting 68 grabs and 688 yards on 93 targets, all career bests. It's hard to imagine he doesn't have an equally similar role in 2019 behind Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller. Gabriel will be worth targeting in the final rounds of fantasy drafts in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson registered 10 receptions for 143 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets in the NFC Wild Card Game playoff loss against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Huddle Up: Robinson was a force in the playoff game, and he registered 754 receiving yards with 13.7 yards per game over 13 games. Health has been an issue for him in the past two seasons, but if he can stay healthy he is the legit No. 1 wideout in Chitown and worthy of WR3 status heading into 2019. Just plan to have depth at the position to swap him out in case of injury.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed once for no gain and he had three grabs for 27 yards on five targets in the NFC Wild Card Game playoff loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Cohen ended the regular season with 444 rushing yards while adding 71 grabs, 725 yards and five touchdowns through the air, and he was also a force in the return game at times. He has also not missed a game over his first two NFL seasons. Cohen will be a popular choice in PPR fantasy leagues in 2019 for his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and grab huge chunks of yardage after doing so.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 26-of-43 passes for 303 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the NFC Wild Card playoff game loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Trubisky finished the 2018 regular season with 3,223 passing yards, 24 touchdowns, 12 interceptions and a 95.4 QB Rating. He will enter the 2019 NFL season as a low-end QB1 fantasy target with plenty of upside, especially if Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller can take another step forward.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) will be a game-time decision Sunday, Jan. 6, after being added to the injury report the previous day with a groin injury.
Huddle Up: Injuries that crop up late week seldom turn out well, and second-year TE Adam Shaheen suddenly could find himself with a larger role if Burton can't go against his former team.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 4, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Miller was not a big part of the passing game during the second half of the season but could see some targets in the playoff game. Owners probably will be able to find better options for their lineups, so Miller could be avoided in most leagues.

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 4, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Gabriel has played well at times this season but has gone 12 games without a touchdown and has posted at least 50 yards in only two of the last nine games. He could be considered a possible flex option for owners but could also be avoided if other options are available.

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 4, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.
Huddle Up: Robinson should be the top receiver in the passing game this week and has caught at least five passes in three of his last four games. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues this week.

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (ribs) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 3.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 3.

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (ribs) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: Gabriel likely will see a solid amount of targets this week unless he suffers a setback over the next few days. He could be a low-end No. 2 receiver or flex option in playoff fantasy leagues but is not the best option for owners.

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (ribs) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Gabriel likely will be able to play in the Wild Card game as long as he does not suffer a setback. He has posted at least 50 yards on only one of the last six games but has also been targeted at least seven times in four of the last seven games. He could be a flex option in some playoff fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Miller suffered the injury during the Week 17 but does not appear to be in danger of missing the playoff game. He did not do much during the last month of the season and may only be a flex option at best this week.

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (ribs) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 2.
Huddle Up: Robinson did not play in the regular season finale but appears to be on track to play in the Wild Card game. He is one of the main options in the Bears passing game and can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver this week.

Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen rushed five times for 24 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for eight yards in a 24-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Although a touchdown never hurts, fantasy owners have to be concerned about his lack of touches recently. With Jordan Howard rolling, Cohen will be tough to trust in playoff contests.

Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (shoulder) left the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings due to a shoulder injury and he is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Gabriel is a key member of the receiver corps, especially if Allen Robinson isn't right. We'll watch the injury heading into the wild-card round, which it appears Chicago will be playing next week in the playoffs based on current scores.

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) left the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings in the first half due to an apparent shoulder injury and he headed straight to the locker room.
Huddle Up: Miller has had trouble with shoulder injuries in the past. This time it simply looked like his shoulder popped out of place, and the training staff likely is trying to pop it back into place. We'll keep an eye on his status as the game goes on.

New England Patriots WR Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson (ribs) was held out of practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is listed as doubtful for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Robinson's absence will pave the way for Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller to see more targets, but their playing time could be dialed back some in order for them to be fresher for the playoffs. Start with caution.
