The Bears re-signed Nall on Wednesday. Nall entered the offseason as an exclusive rights free agent, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise to see him sticking with the Bears. He mostly saw action on special teams in 2020, only logging three carries across 16 regular-season games.
Nall did not receive an offensive touch in the Bears' 35-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Nall was mostly used on special teams, though he did rush eight times for 67 yards and a touchdown on the season. After the Bears conclude their playoff run, he'll become an exclusive-rights free agent, and even if the team retains him, he'll have an uphill climb to become a consistent fantasy option.
Nall rushed twice for zero yards in the Bears' 41-17 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday. Nall entered the game after the outcome had already been determined, and with just three carries on the season, it's unlikely he sees enough of a role in Week 17 to be a fantasy factor against the Packers.
Nall did not garner a rush attempt or a target over two offensive snaps, but did field 17 special-teams snaps during Sunday's 33-27 win against the Vikings. The Oregon State product got involved with seven receptions for 65 yards and a touchdown Weeks 8 through 12, but he hasn't gained any traction as a rusher all season. Nall has just one carry to his name in 2020. Meanwhile, David Montgomery continues to dominate the RB workload for Chicago, gaining 162 scrimmage yards with two touchdowns on 33 touches during Week 15.
Nall caught one pass for 10 yards in the Bears' 41-25 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Nall was a nonfactor in the game until entering late in the fourth quarter, when he caught his only target. Unless he gains a more prominent role in the offense, his fantasy value will remain minimal.
