Bears' Jakeem Grant: Targeted four times in win
Grant caught two passes for 25 yards in the Bears' 16-14 win over the Lions on Thursday.
In addition to two kickoff and four punt returns, Grant was fourth on the team with four targets, as the Bears were without Allen Robinson (hamstring) and also lost Marquise Goodwin (foot) in the first half. Grant's fantasy value is highest in leagues that award points for return yardage, though he also can chip in occasionally as a receiver. If the Bears continue to be saddled with wideout injuries, Grant's ability to gain yardage after the catch would give him limited fantasy value as a wide receiver.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Jakeem Grant: Receives two touches
Grant rushed once for 11 yards and caught his only target for six yards in the Bears' 16-13 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.
Grant's greatest value to the Bears is as a returner, and any offensive touches he receives are a bonus. Aside from leagues that award points for return yardage, Grant's fantasy value will be minimal unless his sees an increase in usage.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Jakeem Grant: Will play Sunday
Grant (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers.
Grant was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, but he was able to log full practices Thursday and Friday. The 29-year-old wideout isn't expected to be a factor for Chicago's offense Sunday, as he has recorded just two catches on the season.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Jakeem Grant: Questionable for Week 8
Grant (ankle) is considered questionable for the Bears' Week 8 contest with the 49ers on Sunday.
Grant suffered his ankle injury against the Packers in Week 6 and has had a minimal role on the Bears' offense so far this season. The receiver has only recorded two catches all season and he has yet to play more than seven offensive snaps in a game. If Grant is unable to suit up, it's likely Breshad Perriman will fill his depth receiver role against the 49ers.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Jakeem Grant: Ready for Week 7
Grant (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Grant was sidelined for the first two days of practice but managed a limited session Friday. That will be enough for him to suit up and serve primarily as a returner in the kicking game in Week 7.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Jakeem Grant: Questionable with ankle injury
Grant (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.
Grant failed to practice Wednesday or Thursday but logged a limited session Friday, which will at least give him a glimmer of hope to suit up. He has totaled minus-7 receiving yards this season, but Grant plays a significant special-teams role as both the kick returner and punt returner. If Grant sits out against the Buccaneers, Damiere Byrd will likely work as Chicago's return man.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Jakeem Grant: Sidelined Wednesday
Grant (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.
Grant picked up the injury during Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Packers during a long kick return that was ultimately called back due to a penalty. He managed to return to the game, but the issue is apparently still bothering him to begin the practice week.... See More ... See Less

Grant suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's game against the Packers, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Grant was hobbled after a long punt return, though his effort was nullified by a penalty. It's unclear whether he will be able to retake the field. If Grant remains sidelined, Damiere Byrd would likely fill in for Grant on returns.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Jakeem Grant: Able to return
Grant (ankle) returned to Sunday's game against the Packers, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Grant was shaken up after a long punt return that was nullified by penalty. He was spotted returning a kick later in the game, and he should continue to serve as a key special teams player for the Bears for the remainder of the game.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Jakeem Grant: Active to face Packers
Grant (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Grant was limited in practice Thursday, but the injury wasn't serious enough to keep him out of this game. He's not expected to hold a big role on offense, however, as he only has two receptions this year.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Jakeem Grant: Pops up on injury report
Grant (groin) was limited in practice Thursday.
Grant didn't appear on the injury report Wednesday, implying that he picked up the issue during practice. The fact that he was still able to take the field in any capacity is positive, though his status for Sunday's game against the Packers remains ambiguous. In his first game with the Bears, Grant played only two offensive snaps. He could see an increased role in Week 6 if Allen Robinson (ankle) is unable to play.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Jakeem Grant: Traded to Windy City
Grant is being traded to the Bears on Tuesday in exchange for a 2023 sixth-round pick, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Grant found himself on the outside of Miami's regular offensive rotation this season, in large part due to the arrival of new starters Will Fuller (finger) and Jaylen Waddle, but in Chicago he could see more work. The Bears are in need of more consistent contributions behind Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney, and Grant could offer Damiere Byrd and Marquise Goodwin real competition for the No. 3 role. The 28-year-old is also a quality option in the return game.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Barely plays offense Week 3
Grant was not targeted during Sunday's 31-28 overtime loss to the Raiders.
Grant dealt with an ankle injury leading into Week 3, which may explain in part why he only handled two offensive snaps versus Las Vegas. On the other hand, the debut of Will Fuller may have simply deprived Grant of any real opportunities to handle skill-position reps. The speedster did lock down his usual role as Miami's top return man, but as long as he's limited almost entirely to special teams, he will remain off the fantasy radar in the vast majority of formats....

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Cleared for Week 3
Grant (ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Raiders, Armando Salguero of Outkick reports.
Grant upgraded to full practice participation Friday after being limited Wednesday and Thursday, shedding his injury label in the process. He should work in his usual capacity Sunday as the return man on special teams and get the occasional opportunity on offense.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Limited to start week
Grant (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Grant is looking iffy for Week 3 due to an ankle sprain, but it's at least encouraging to see that he's able to handle limited practice reps. With quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) already ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, the Dolphins will need all the help they can get at the skill positions.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Nursing ankle sprain
Grant is managing an ankle sprain picked up during Sunday's 35-0 blowout loss to the Bills, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Grant avoided a serious injury, but he could still be forced to miss some time while recovering. Rookie first-round pick Jaylen Waddle could take over as Miami's primary return man as long as Grant is sidelined.... See More ... See Less
