Bears' Willie Young: Notches 7.5 sacks in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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.

Bears' Willie Young: Questionable to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Willie Young: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Willie Young: Collects sack in Sunday win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Young (knee) tallied a sack and a tackle Sunday against the 49ers.

Young has only collected 1.5 sacks over his last six games after starting out the season hot with six sacks in the first six matchups of 2016. It's certainly possible that he could get hot to end the season, making him an upside add in IDP leagues during the fantasy playoffs.
