Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery followed up his 89-reception, 1,421-yard and seven-touchdown 2013 Pro Bowl campaign with 85 receptions for 1,133 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. Simply put, he has become a legitimate number one fantasy wide receiver option.

Jeffery is a supremely talented receiver with impressive skills across the board. He has the speed and quickness to beat corners beat, and make plays after the catch. Jeffery possesses an incredibly consistent pair of hands, and he can also bring in the most difficult catches. Last, but certainly not least, Jeffery has great size and athleticism that allows him to dominate in the red zone. He truly is the total package.

With the Bears moving on from Brandon Marshall this off season, Jeffery is primed for an even larger role in the Bears’ offense. Cutler has a tendency to lock into one receiver a huge majority of the time, and with Marshall nowhere to be found, Jeffery will likely become that guy.

Jeffery has already established himself as an elite fantasy receiver. He now has the upside to be even better than before. The sky truly is the limit with Alshon Jeffery. His current ADP of the 23rd overall pick (ninth WR) also makes him an obvious value play.
