  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Week 5 Waiver Priority List

    I hope what Mooney did in Week 4 against the Giants is a sign of things to come. After three largely disappointing games where he combined for just six PPR points, Mooney had four catches for 94 yards on five targets. We had high expectations for Mooney this season because of his role in the Bears offense with a high amount of targets, and hopefully that will come to fruition as the year goes on. For now, you can buy back into him with minimal expectations, and he's worth 5 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Season-high 94 yards in loss

    Mooney caught four of five targets for 94 yards in Sunday's 20-12 loss to the Giants. Mooney came into this one averaging just nine receiving yards per game in 2022 but posted a performance reminiscent of last season's 1,055-yard campaign. He accounted for most of Justin Fields' 174 passing yards, with the majority of Mooney's production coming on a 56-yard catch in the first quarter. Mooney should remain the top fantasy option in Chicago's low-volume passing game against the Vikings in Week 5.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Two catches in Week 3

    Mooney caught two of six targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Texans. Mooney led the Bears in targets but once again failed to make much of an impact as Justin Fields completed only eight passes. Fields is averaging fewer than 100 passing yards per game, so it will be tough to trust any Bears receivers in Week 4 against the Giants, though Mooney remains the nominal top option among that group.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: WRs to Sit

    I'm hoping this is the breakout game for Mooney, but the Bears need to let Justin Fields throw the ball with just 29 pass attempts on the season. As a result, Mooney has just five targets in two games, which he's converted for two catches, 4 yards and no touchdowns. The reason we loved Mooney this year was his expected volume, and that's non-existent heading into Week 3. I would stash him for one more week to see what happens against the Texans, who have struggled with Michael Pittman and Courtland Sutton in consecutive weeks. But those No. 1 guys got targets, and right now Mooney isn't seeing any love from his coaching staff or quarterback.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Flex Starter (Lineup Decisions)

    With his best matchup to date in front of him, Mooney's a safer flex in non-PPR than full-PPR but worth a nudge ahead of Sterling Shepard, Jarvis Landry, Jakobi Meyers and Josh Palmer in formats where catches don't count.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: No progress in Week 2

    Mooney caught one of two targets for minus-4 yards in Sunday's 27-10 loss to the Packers. Two weeks into the season, Mooney has just four receiving yards on five targets, and there wasn't any inclement weather to blame his poor performance on this time. He's far from the only member of Chicago's passing attack that's off to a slow start, as quarterback Justin Fields has thrown for just 182 yards through two games. Mooney will try to get his season on track in Week 3 against the Texans and rookie cornerback Derek Stingley, whom Houston selected third overall in the 2022 NFL Draft.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: WRs to Sit

    Darnell Mooney had a tough Week 1 outing against San Francisco in the rain, and he finished with just one catch for 8 yards on three targets. He should improve in better conditions against the Packers this week, but he doesn't have a great history at Green Bay. In two games there, he's combined for just four catches for 53 yards and no touchdowns. I'd still use him as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in most leagues, but I don't have high expectations for him against this defense.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Slow start to season

    Mooney caught one pass on three targets for eight yards in the Bears' 19-10 win over the 49ers on Sunday. Mooney didn't make his only catch until the fourth quarter, though he was targeted three times. Both teams combined to throw for just 285 yards, as the game was played on a soaked field along with intermittent heavy rain. Mooney should go back to being heavily targeted when the Bears travel to Green Bay next week.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Flex Starter (Lineup Decisions)

    I'd start him as a flex over Jerry Jeudy, Amari Cooper, Antonio Gibson and Cordarrelle Patterson, but I'd rather start Gabe Davis.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: One catch in preseason finale

    Mooney caught his only target for five yards in Chicago's preseason game against Cleveland on Saturday. Mooney didn't have much to do in Chicago's preseason finale, but the exact opposite will be the case when the Bears kick off their regular-season schedule. As much as his Week 1 matchup against San Francisco might be less than favorable, the Bears might need to give him a good target count anyway.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: In line to play Saturday

    Mooney may play the entire first half along with the Bears' starters in Saturday's preseason finale against the Browns, Alyssa Barbieri of USA Today reports. Mooney was on the field for one drive last week, but coach Matt Eberflus expects to play his starters for the entire first half against Cleveland. Mooney appears to be the unquestioned top option in the Chicago passing attack for Justin Fields going into this season.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Likely to sit Saturday

    Mooney and the Bears starters are expected to be sidelined Saturday against the Browns, Alyssa Barbieri of USA Today reports. After playing the starters briefly in each of the first two preseason games, the first-string unit is in line to sit out in order to avoid unnecessary injuries. Assuming that's the case, we'll see Mooney next Week 1 against the 49ers.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Limited action expected Thursday

    Mooney may be on the field for 6-10 plays in Thursday's game against the Seahawks Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. After playing in two series last week, Mooney is likely to see a similar amount of work this week. However, Fishbain also reported that some starters may see up to 20 snaps, so that's possible for Mooney as well. Coach Matt Eberflus cites a short week as the reason why his starters aren't playing more.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Catches one pass

    Mooney caught one pass for 26 yards in Saturday's preseason win against Kansas City. Mooney's lone target came in the Bears' second series while Justin Fields was still in the game and represented the team's longest reception of the day. He should be the Bears' top wide receiver this season.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Expected to play Saturday

    Mooney is expected to play along with the Bears' starters in Saturday's preseason opener against the Chiefs, Alyssa Barbieri of USA Today reports. Although not listed by name in the report, coach Matt Eberflus informed reporters that Chicago's starters will play 15 to 20 snaps, though some will play just 10 to 15, in Saturday's game against Kansas City. Mooney is a near lock to start the season as the team's top receiver after surpassing 1,000 yards last year.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Working to improve conditioning

    Mooney struggled with fatigue at times last year, and he spent the offseason working to avoid a recurrence in 2022, Dan Pompei of The Athletic reports. Even though Allen Robinson (now with the Rams) was often thought of as the Bears' lead receiver last year, it was Mooney who was the top pass catcher on the team for the majority of the season. From Week 8 on, he had six games with at least 60 yards with three of those resulting in over 120 yards. Firmly atop Chicago's wideout depth chart, Mooney -- who turns 25 in October -- will have a full training camp to continue to build chemistry with QB Justin Fields, on the heels of a 2021 campaign in which he recorded an 81/1,055/4 stat line (on 140 targets) in 17 games.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Comes up big in season finale

    Mooney caught 12 passes for 126 yards in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 81 receptions 1,054 yards and four touchdowns. Despite the Bears having a mostly anemic passing attack throughout the season, Mooney showed that he's on his way to becoming a star player. On four occasions, he recorded more than 120 yards, and although he had just four receiving scores, the lack of touchdowns had more to do with the lack of quality at quarterback than his talent. He'll enter the third year of his four-year rookie deal in 2022, and he could certainly be drafted as a top-30 receiver next summer.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Leads team with nine targets

    Mooney caught five passes on nine targets for 57 yards while adding a two-yard rush in the Bears' 25-24 win over the Seahawks on Sunday. Mooney had fewer than 10 yards with a couple minutes left in the third quarter, but with the team mounting a late comeback, he had a productive finish to the game. Earlier in the contest, Nick Foles struggled to get the ball to his top receiver, underthrowing him on a couple occasions and simply not seeing him on other plays. With a fair chance of the Bears getting back Justin Fields or Andy Dalton in Week 17, Mooney will be in position to take advantage of a middling matchup against the Giants.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Efficient performance in defeat

    Mooney caught five passes for 63 yards in the Bears' 17-9 loss to the Vikings on Monday. Mooney caught three of his passes on third downs in the first half, which helped the Bears extend drives, but the team otherwise went with a run-heavy approach, and he disappeared for most of the second and third quarters. Even on the first fourth-quarter drive in which the Bears drove down the field through the air, the only target Mooney saw was an overthrown ball in the end zone on which he was unable to stay in bounds. On the next drive, he had another chance for a score, but the pass again was overthrown. Although his usage hasn't been consistent, he could easily have a strong finish to the fantasy season with games against the Seahawks and Giants, especially if he can return to the target share he saw between Weeks 8 and 12.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Struggles in loss

    Mooney caught five passes for 27 yards in the Bears' 33-22 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. Between the Cardinals rolling coverage toward Chicago's top receiver along with Andy Dalton having very little time to throw, Mooney was unable to get anything going downfield. With the Bears playing from behind in the fourth quarter, Mooney was able to catch four of his five passes on the day to provide his fantasy managers with a decent floor performance. Going forward, Mooney could easily perform as a top-30 wide receiver as the lead receiver for the Bears, and he could see extra space to operate if Allen Robinson (hamstring) can return to action soon.
