Chicago Bears WR Darnell Mooney finished with three grabs for 40 yards on a team-high seven targets in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: During the broadcast they said it was head coach Matt Nagy's plan to try and get the ball downfield to Mooney, and they certainly tried. But he ended up with a rather marginal stat line. He is a player fantasy owners should monitor in the next game or two, however. He could emerge as a downfield threat and useful fantasy option in deeper leagues. The Bears host the Saints in Week 8.

Chicago Bears WR Darnell Mooney registered three receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown on three targets in Week 2 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Mooney saw a larger role with Ted Ginn Jr. and Riley Ridley inactive. However, despite the touchdown, he isn't someone who is recommended fantasy purposes heading into Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Chicago Bears WR Darnell Mooney is drawing praise from wide receivers coach Mike Furrey. 'He's gonna probably be one of the most explosive guys that we have in our room in regard to matching his speed with his agility,' Furrey said of Mooney in an interview published Friday, June 19.
Huddle Up: The fifth-round rookie out of Tulane isn't worth a pick in standard-size leagues for now, but he is player to keep an eye on this preseason as the Bears look for a complement to wideout Allen Robinson.
