Young had minor arthroscopic knee surgery this offseason, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Young was an excellent free agent addition for the Bears in 2014, as he's recorded 24 sacks over three seasons, and despite the team having plenty of competition at linebacker, it would be a shock if he didn't continue to see regular snaps on a rotational basis. He'll only be an IDP option in deep leagues, and the majority of his value will come from his ability to produce sacks.
Young (knee) tallied three tackles in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 7.5 sacks, a forced fumble and 37 tackles. Although Young's 7.5 sacks looked impressive, he collected five of them in a two-week span, making him a very weak fantasy option in the overwhelming majority of games. He'll be under contract with the Bears next season, although he figures to be in a fight for snaps with Leonard Floyd, Lamarr Houston and Pernell McPhee. However, with Houston and McPhee consistently struggling with injuries, it wouldn't be a surprise if he saw consistent snaps in 2017, so his fantasy value will remain murky until training camp.
Young (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Vikings, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. Young didn't practice until Friday and it's a possibility he could be limited in the team's season finale. Sam Acho will see extra reps if Young is anything less than a full go.
Young (knee) is questionable to play Sunday in Minnesota. While it isn't clear if Young aggravated his knee last Sunday versus the Redskins, he wasn't able to join his team at practice until Friday. If he's unable to go, look for Sam Acho to run with the first-string unit.
Young (knee) is active for Saturday's game against the Redskins. The strongside linebacker had been battling a knee injury during the week, but he'll be able to play through it Saturday. He has not been productive of late as far as IDP statistics are concerned, making a total of five tackles in the last four weeks.
