The Wide Receivers Not Named Jeffery

Kevin White, WR: The Bears first-round selection of 2015 is an extremely talented player who has seemingly unlimited upside at the next level. His combination of speed, size and pure athleticism is incredibly enticing for the next level, and could make for stardom right away.

That being said, wide receivers do not always acclimate to the NFL level right away. There may be some learning curves for White in his rookie season, and targets may be relatively tough to come by. White has huge upside this season, but he could also easily not do very much. He is an extremely strong dynasty option, but for this season, White is a risky selection.

Eddie Royal, WR: The Bears signed Eddie Royal to a free agent contract this off season , and he is currently considered to be the starter opposite of Jeffery. Royal is an established player with an obvious skill-set out of the slot, but if White emerges, he will start over Royal.

He has a history of making plays by using his impressive speed and quickness on the inside, and has had a knack for reaching the end zone in recent years. I do not love Royal’s chances to make a huge difference in the Bears’ offense this season, but he is going undrafted in a large majority of fantasy drafts. I do not mind Royal as a late-round depth flyer in PPR leagues, because he is going to see some targets, but do not expect too much from him.

Marquess Wilson, WR: Every Bears fan has waited for the Marquess Wilson breakout since the team drafted him in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Wilson started to come on a bit last season, and his skill-set is legitimate, but playing time may be tough to come by, and he is almost completely unproven in the NFL.

Wilson does have some upside, and could certainly breakout if given an opportunity, but I am not going to be the one to predict that. He is worth mentioning, but I doubt Wilson has much fantasy value in 2015.
