Chicago Bears WR Darnell Mooney (ankle) is expected to undergo season-ending surgery on the ankle injury he suffered in Week 12 versus the New York Jets, according to head coach Matt Eberflus.
Huddle Up: Mooney was expected to be a volume-based PPR dynamo in the same way he was in 2021 when he attracted 140 targets. What happened is that Chicago became such a run-based offense with Justin Fields that Mooney ended up being a hit-or-miss WR3 at best. The third-year receiver's season will end with 40 catches for 493 yards and two touchdowns. In his absence, Chase Claypool should assume the WR1 mantle in Chicago and Cole Kmet seems likely to draw a few more targets too.

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Darnell Mooney (ankle) will have more tests Monday Nov. 28, but it is fears he suffered a season-ending ankle injury in the Week 12 game against the New York Jets, a source said.
Huddle Up: Mooney will be missed by those in deeper PPR leagues, as he had four or more grabs in each of his past four full games, and he had two touchdowns in the three prior games before Sunday's injury.

Updating previous reports, the Chicago Bears have not yet officially decided on whether QB Nathan Peterman or QB Trevor Siemian (oblique) will start Week 12's game versus the New York Jets. Siemian sustained an oblique injury during pregame warmups Sunday, Nov. 27, but members of Chicago's media relations department told reporters in the press box that the starting quarterback remains a game-time decision.
Huddle Up: Neither Siemian nor Peterman should be viewed as a recommended fantasy option in any format.

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) is not active for Week 12's game versus the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Fields had been listed as questionable on the injury report after logging three limited practice sessions during the week. QB Trevor Siemian will receive the starting nod but is not a recommended option in any fantasy format, especially with the difficult matchup.

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) has not been cleared to play yet and the chances of that happening before game time on Sunday are "very slim," per Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune on Saturday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: The Bears elevating Nathan Peterman for Week 12 was a sign that Fields is unlikely to go. Fantasy managers should get a contingency plan in place just in case, but Fields' backup, Trevor Siemian, doesn't qualify as one.

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Week 12 versus the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: While head coach Matt Eberflus noted that Fields is "feeling better every single day," it would not be a shock if the Bears decided to sit him - especially against a very good New York defense. If Fields is able to play, he should be considered a decent QB1 in a difficult matchup that comes with the added risk of an in-game aggravation. Fantasy managers should strongly consider another option if they have one available to them. Trevor Siemian will get the start if Fields is ruled out Sunday.

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.
Huddle Up: Fields is considered day-to-day because of the injury, but it appears to be a good start of the week for him. He has become a must-start option in all fantasy leagues if healthy.

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) said he has a separated shoulder with partially torn ligaments, and says it's "basically an AC joint" injury.
Huddle Up: The partially torn ligaments create even more concern for Fields' availability moving forward, and it wouldn't be at all surprising to see the Bears take the conservative approach with his recovery and even shut him down for the rest of the season with the team having nothing to play for. Any missed time would be a tough blow for fantasy owners who have enjoyed Fields' insane production of late. All that said, Fields was able to participate in practice on Wednesday in a limited fashion and is considered day-to-day, so there's still hope he plays in Week 12, but it's hard to imagine he'll be 100 percent this week, and really for the foreseeable future. However, as long as he's active Fields is a must-start QB1, but fantasy owners should also be making a contingency plan just in case he sits.

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) has been diagnosed with a left shoulder dislocation, according to sources. He is listed as day-to-day.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Fields will be able to play in Week 12. He has become a weekly starting option in all leagues, but players will need backup plans ready in case he sits out.

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields (shoulder) will have an MRI Monday, Nov. 21, on his left shoulder.
Huddle Up: Fields is really coming of age, and any missed time at this point could be significant in fantasy. Stay tuned.

Chicago Bears TE Cole Kmet (thigh) fully participated in practice Monday, Nov. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Kmet has become a big part of the passing game of the last few games and should see a good amount of targets again this week. He can be a No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (non-injury) fully participated in practice Monday, Nov. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Montgomery should have a significant role in the offense this week since he will see most of the work at running back. He should be a starting option in most fantasy leagues.

The Chicago Bears are optimistic that RB Khalil Herbert (hip) will return from the Reserve/Injured list before the end of the season, according to ESPN's Courtney Cronin. Herbert will miss a minimum of four games, meaning he'll be eligible to return in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Going on IR this late means Herbert will appear in a maximum of three games, and with many fantasy leagues wrapping up before Week 18, that effectively means he could contribute twice more the rest of the year. You can hold onto him if you have the roster space, but it's not a priority.

Chicago Bears TE Cole Kmet (thigh) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Kmet is in danger of missing the Week 11 game. He has become a popular target for Justin Fields and is a No. 1 tight end in most leagues if he plays.

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Chicago Bears RB Khalil Herbert (hip) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 15. Free-agent CB Justin Layne (Giants) was claimed off waivers to replace him on the roster.
Huddle Up: Although his production was taking a hit with Justin Fields taking the lead in the running game in recent weeks, Herbert's absence removes a big-play element from the backfield. With Herbert on the shelf for at least four weeks, David Montgomery should re-enter the RB2 conversation as the clear featured back in Chicago. Montgomery gets a soft matchup in Week 11 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Chicago Bears RB Khalil Herbert (hip) suffered a hip injury during the Week 10 game and was not able to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor Herbert's practice participation this upcoming week to see if he will be able to play in Week 11. He can be at least a flex option when healthy.

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields is the No. 1 overall player in fantasy football the last four weeks, tallying 110.52 points in that span.
Huddle Up: Fields has gone from a dud to a fantasy superstar these last four weeks thanks to the Bears opting to finally use his legs more. It remains to be seen if he can sustain his red-hot pace, but Fields has become a must-start QB1 until further notice.

Chicago Bears WR Chase Claypool will make his debut with the team in Week 9 but will have a limited role, head coach Matt Eberflus said on Friday, Nov. 4.
Huddle Up: This was to be expected after Claypool landed in Chicago at the trade deadline. Claypool was barely on the flex radar in Pittsburgh, but perhaps things will get better with the Bears. We'll need to see it first before re-inserting him into lineups, though. Keep him on the bench this week.

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Chase Claypool was traded to the Chicago Bears in exchange for a 2023 second-round draft pick Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Huddle Up: The second-round pick is reportedly the Bears' original pick and not the one they acquired in the Roquan Smith trade on Monday. Claypool gives Chicago a strong complement to go with Darnell Mooney and should give Justin Fields more of a chance to thrive as a passer than he had over the first eight weeks of the season. It is hard to imagine this is the landing spot fantasy managers wanted for Claypool, as the Bears are unlikely to provide enough volume for him to become a regular fantasy starter.
