2. N’Keal Harry is making an impact for the Chicago Bears

It has been slow progress, but considering what the Chicago Bears gave up for him, the N’Keal Harry is probably already a win. The team needed some help for Justin Fields in the short term, and even if Harry does not last for the long term, he is doing just that.

Harry caught a touchdown on Sunday, adding to the catch he made on Monday night against his former team. He is not changing games, and most would credit Justin Fields for a nice throw, but Harry is getting involved in the offense and giving Fields another name that he can throw to.

The Chicago Bears need a wide receiver in the worst way The slow emergence of Equanimeous St. Brown has been nice, and Darnell Mooney is capable when he is a secondary wideout. If Harry could step and add some more depth to ESB they would start to form an actual wide receiver room.

They would have two blockers on the outside and Mooney in the slot. When you add in Dante Pettis and Velus Jones, there is at least a semblance and understanding of what Chicago was going for. It took a bit to figure things out, but the wide receivers are going to finish the season looking better than how they started.
