Free-agent WR Damiere Byrd (Patriots) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, May 4, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Byrd is coming a productive 2020 season and could compete for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp. Fantasy players can monitor the situation because Byrd could be a late round option if he receives a decent role in the passing game.

New England Patriots WR Damiere Byrd posted three receptions for 24 yards on four targets in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Byrd jelled nicely with Cam Newton this season, emerging as the No. 2 wideout option in the New England offense for the most part. Still, he is nothing more than a WR5 or WR6 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 16 against the Bills.

New England Patriots WR Damiere Byrd caught five passes (on eight targets) for 48 yards during a Week 14 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: With the exception of Week 13 Byrd has seen regular usage over the last month-plus, being targeted at least seven times in four of his last five games. Obviously there's not a lot of value stemming from New England's passing game these days, but Byrd is probably the best of the bunch as a possible flex play.

Huddle Up: Byrd has three or more grabs in each of his past four outings, and eight of the past nine contests. He has emerged as a solid low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 13 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

New England Patriots WR Damiere Byrd caught six passes for 132 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 11. He was targeted seven times during the game.
Huddle Up: The Patriots threw more than usual against the Texans, and Byrd made the most of his opportunity. He should see a handful of targets next week against the Arizona Cardinals and could be a flex option in some leagues.

New England Patriots WR Damiere Byrd posted five receptions for 65 yards on nine targets in Week 9 against the New York Jets on Monday, Nov. 9.
Huddle Up: Byrd has three or more grabs in six of the past seven outings, but he hasn't scored a touchdown in eight contest this season. As such, he remains more of a WR5 in PPR leagues heading into Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens, with lesser appeal in standard formats.

New England Patriots WR Damiere Byrd caught three passes for 39 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 8. He was targeted four times during the game.
Huddle Up: Byrd had a terrific game about a month ago but has been targeted only 10 times over the last three games. He may receive another start next week because of injuries at the position but can be avoided in most leagues.

New England Patriots WR Damiere Byrd led the team's receivers in snaps in Week 6. He played 55 of 57 offensive plays.
Huddle Up: It didn't translate to much in the stat sheet with three grabs for 38 yards, but he has had 14 targets combined in the last two games. Byrd showed some flashes with the Arizona Cardinals last season and is worth grabbing as a speculative flyer.

New England Patriots WR Damiere Byrd caught five passes for 80 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4. He was targeted 10 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Byrd has been targeted at least nine times in two of the last three games and appears to have earned a solid role in the passing game for the Patriots. Fantasy players in deeper leagues could consider having Byrd on the bench, but he is not a starting option at this point.
