The Bears used their first round pick last year on Alshon Jeffery but got little return from the wide receiver due to an injury-plagued year. This season there are higher expectations for the 2nd year player and the Bears expect him to be the compliment to Brandon Marshall that Jay Cutler needs. Honestly, last year was a 3 man show for the bears offense. Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall, and the Bears running backs (yeah that's 2 more but whatever) did basically everything last year. They really need Jeffery to take that next step in the offense especially with their lack of a tight end option. Fantasy Spin: Someone has to get targets next year besides Marshall, and I fully expect Jeffery to step up and play up to expectations this year. He has gotten big praise from the receivers coach and I would definitely keep an eye out for him as a WR3 this year.
