Anthony Miller secured one-of-four targets for 29 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Bears’ Week 6 loss to Miami.

This was the rookie's first game back from a dislocated shoulder. Miller's day, at least for fantasy purposes, would have been a lot different had he pulled in a Mitchell Trubisky deep bomb in the first quarter. He was wide open but Trubisky badly overthrew him. Miller did visit the end zone later on, snagging a 29-yard touchdown grab to put Chicago back ahead (at least briefly) in the fourth quarter. The second-round pick has scored in two of his past three outings, though he's averaged just 25 receiving yards per game during that span. Miller will remain off the fantasy radar next week against New England.

Trey Burton handled all four of his targets for 23 yards and a touchdown Sunday in Chicago’s Week 6 loss to Miami.

It was a quiet afternoon for Burton, though he salvaged the day somewhat by turning a Mitchell Trubisky shovel pass into a nine-yard touchdown during the third quarter. Burton has now scored in three of his last four games while catching 14-of-17 targets (82.4 percent) during that span. The 26-year-old will remain a borderline TE1 when he faces the Patriots in Week 7. Burton was involved in one of the most iconic plays in NFL history—the Philly Special—the last time he squared off against New England in Super Bowl LII.

Allen Robinson pulled in five catches for 64 yards and a touchdown on six targets Sunday in Chicago’s Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

Robinson found himself on the receiving end of a 12-yard touchdown strike from Mitchell Trubisky in the third quarter, which came immediately following Kyle Fuller's interception of Brock Osweiler. That marked his second touchdown in as many games. Robinson's other contributions included a nice back-shoulder catch for a 21-yard gain in the fourth quarter and drawing a pass interference flag that eventually led to a Bears touchdown. A-Rob gets a date with New England in Week 7.
Oct 14 - 5:59 PM

Jordan Howard logged 69 yards on 14 carries while failing to reel in his lone target Sunday in Chicago’s Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

Howard contributed a handful of big runs but was again out-shined by backfield-mate Tarik Cohen, who impressed with 121 yards from scrimmage. Despite assurances from coach Matt Nagy that Howard would play a bigger role in the passing game this year, he's mostly been a non-factor in that area, just as he's been throughout his career. Howard had a chance for a touchdown in the first half but coughed it up on the goal line, resulting in a turnover. With Cohen's workload on the rise, Howard is looking like a fringe RB2, which isn't what fantasy owners thought they were getting when they drafted him in August. We'll see how Chicago's backfield distribution shakes out next week against New England.

Taylor Gabriel snagged all five of his targets for 110 yards while adding a nine-yard rush Sunday in the Bears’ Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

Make that two 100-yard receiving games in a row for Gabriel, who went off for 104 yards against Tampa Bay prior to the Bears' bye week. Gabriel didn't find the end zone in this one but he still made his presence felt with a number of big plays, the first of those coming on a 47-yard deep bomb from Mitchell Trubisky during the second quarter. He bettered that with a 54-yarder in the third quarter, again dusting overmatched corner Torry McTyer for a huge gain. The speedy 27-year-old has quickly emerged as Trubisky's preferred deep threat. He'll look to keep it going against New England in Week 7.
Oct 14 - 5:00 PM

Tarik Cohen contributed 31 yards and a touchdown on five carries while adding seven catches for 90 yards on nine targets Sunday in the Bears’ Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

He saw two fewer touches than backfield-mate Jordan Howard (14-12) but out-gained him by over 50 yards. Cohen flashed his signature speed with a number of big plays including a 21-yard touchdown burst during the third quarter. He added a 50-yard catch-and-run later in the half and nearly scored a second touchdown, but it was called back on offensive pass interference. Cohen did hit a few rough patches, getting stuffed on a fourth-and-one opportunity and also losing a fumble in Bears territory late in the second half. After playing second fiddle early in the year, Cohen has pulled even with Howard in Chicago's backfield pecking order. Look for their timeshare to continue next week against New England.

Mitchell Trubisky completed 22-of-31 passes for 316 yards with three touchdowns and one interception while adding 47 yards on eight carries Sunday in the Bears’ Week 6 loss to Miami.

He was dropped for two sacks, which resulted in a loss of 13 yards. Trubisky has now thrown for nine touchdown passes over his last two outings, the same number he had in his first 15 starts. The 2017 first-rounder did almost all of his damage after halftime, throwing for 222 yards on 12-of-16 passing in the second half. Trubisky was far from perfect—he was bailed out on a handful of spectacular catches (the most absurd of the bunch coming on a 47-yard deep heave to Taylor Gabriel in the second quarter) and was intercepted in the end zone on a pass he never should have thrown. But for fantasy purposes, the 24-year-old has done just fine. We'll see how he fares when the Bears host New England in Week 7.
Oct 14 - 4:58 PM

Bears CB Prince Amukamara left Sunday's Week 6 game against the Dolphins with a hamstring injury and is doubtful to return.

He aggravated his hamstring injury during the fourth quarter. Assuming his day is finished, Amukamara will finish the afternoon with two tackles. In his absence, Kevin Toliver will work outside opposite Kyle Fuller with Bryce Callahan manning the slot.
Oct 14 - 3:37 PM

Anthony Miller (shoulder) is active for Week 6 against the Dolphins.

Miller only missed one game with his dislocated shoulder. CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) is also good to go. FB Michael Burton, CB Marcus Cooper, OT Rashaad Coward, OLB Kylie Fitts, DT Nick Williams, WR Javon Wims and OT Bryan Witzmann round out the Bears' inactives for Week 6.
Oct 14 - 11:44 AM

Anthony Miller (shoulder) will play in Week 6 against the Dolphins.

Miller was out prior to the Bears' bye but practiced in full on both Thursday and Friday. Coach Matt Nagy said he'll play. Expect Josh Bellamy to return to the sideline, with Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel running a majority of their routes from the outside. Miller's a fringe WR4 in his first game back.
Oct 12 - 2:50 PM

Anthony Miller (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 6 against the Dolphins.

Miller is back after sitting out Week 4 with a dislocated shoulder. Because of Chicago's early bye, the injury only cost him one game. It will be interesting to see how the Bears use Miller following Taylor Gabriel's two-touchdown breakout in Week 4.
Oct 10 - 5:38 PM

Jordan Howard said he "wasn’t frustrated" by his role Week 4 against the Bucs.

The Bears had easily their best day of the season on offense, but Howard was left out of the fun, rushing just 11 times for 25 yards despite what seemed like his perfect gamescript. On Monday, coach Matt Nagy made it sound like Howard's lack of involvement was game-plan specific. "He has a big-time role. But if it’s an advantage to us to go a different direction for that game or for that play or that series, we’re going to do that," Nagy said. "And Jordan is good with that. He understands it." It sounds like Howard will return to the No. 1 role against the Dolphins this week, but it might not be a coincidence the offense looked its best with Tarik Cohen as the main back. Howard's rest-of-season workload is now at least a question mark.
Oct 9 - 10:11 AM
Sam Acho - LB - Bears

Bears placed OLB Sam Acho on injured reserve with a torn pectoral, ending his season.

A 12-game starter last season, Acho had been on the field for just 27 snaps so far in 2018. Now 29, Acho is signed through 2019.
Oct 1 - 1:53 PM

Allen Robinson caught 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' Week 4 victory over the Buccaneers.

Robinson's 20 yards and ensuing touchdown wouldn't ordinarily be a letdown, but it came on a day in which Mitchell Trubisky threw for career-highs in yards (354) and touchdowns (6). Normally the recipient during the majority of his drop backs, Trubisky instead fed backup RB Tarik Cohen (7-121-1), Taylor Gabriel (7-104-2), and Trey Burton (2-86-1) rather than A-Rob. Robinson should still be the primary beneficiary moving forward now that the Bears' offense appears to be clicking on all cylinders. Unless he's shadowed by premier CB Xavien Howard after the bye, Robinson will stay a low-end WR2 against the Dolphins.
Sep 30 - 9:39 PM

Trey Burton hauled in 2-of-4 passes for 86 yards and one score in Sunday's Week 4 win over the Bucs.

After plodding through subpar performances during Chicago's first three games, Burton went as Mitchell Trubisky went, corralling one of the second-year pro's career-high six touchdowns on the day. To this point, Burton had merely posted a season-high of 55 yards and had yet to get into the end zone. Burton's lone touchdown on the day admittedly occurred during a complete breakdown in the Bucs' hapless secondary. It won't always be this easy for the Bears' offense, but it was good to see Burton finally get off the schneid and flash the rapport he showed with Trubisky in the preseason. He'll remain a low-end TE1 moving forward given the position's dreadful drop-off from years past.
