  • Bears' Chase Claypool: Surprises with solid game

    Claypool caught three passes for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 27-17 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

    The Bears lost Darnell Mooney to a knee injury during the contest, and Claypool then functioned as the primary receiving complement to DJ Moore. Claypool led the team with eight targets, and he could get a chance to build on his encouraging effort if Mooney is forced to miss time.

  • Bears' Chase Claypool: Suiting up Week 2

    Claypool is listed as active ahead of Chicago's Week 2 matchup against Tampa Bay.

    There had been some doubts about Claypool's gameday roster status following a disappointing Week 1 showing, both from an effort and overall production standpoint (he was held to zero catches on two targets despite playing 55 snaps). The Bears will ultimately give the fifth-year wideout a chance to work through these issues, but Claypool remains an incredibly risky fantasy option as the No. 3 wide receiver in a run-first Chicago offense.

  • Bears' Chase Claypool: Expected to play Week 2

    Claypool is practicing as normal this week and is expected to play Sunday against the Bucs, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Claypool was dreadful in the Week 1 opener versus Green Bay, parlaying 58 offensive snaps into zero catches on two targets. Coach Matt Eberflus openly admitted the team was going to look into Claypool's Week 2 role. He simply can't be trusted in fantasy lineups until further notice.

  • Bears' Chase Claypool: Could be headed to bench

    Bears coach Matt Eberflus was non-committal Wednesday when asked whether Claypool would see a reduced role this Sunday at Tampa Bay, Chris Emma of reports. "We're looking at all possibilities right now," Eberflus said.

    Claypool struggled as a blocker and finished without a catch on two targets in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Packers, operating as the No. 3 receiver behind DJ Moore and Darnell Mooney. The No. 3 role in a run-heavy Bears offense isn't conducive to fantasy value even if Claypool plays well in real life, which is something he arguably hasn't done since the middle part of his 2020 rookie season. Lack of effort as a repeat theme isn't promising, nor is it a good look when one of the largest wideouts in the league -- listed at 6-foot-4, 238 pounds -- repeatedly draws attention for poor blocking. Emma and other Bears beat reporters have hinted at the possibility of Equanimeous St. Brown being active instead of Claypool for Week 2 at Tampa Bay, with rookie Tyler Scott or veteran Trent Taylor likely taking the No. 3 receiver role in that scenario.

  • Bears' Chase Claypool: Shut out in opener

    Claypool was targeted twice but failed to record a reception in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Packers.

    Claypool was a non-factor in a game during which seven different Chicago players caught a pass. The veteran has reached 30 yards once over his last eight games with the Bears, making him difficult to trust in fantasy lineups.

  • Bears' Chase Claypool: Avoids injury report

    Claypool (hamstring) wasn't listed on the Bears' initial Week 1 injury report released Wednesday.

    Since injuring his hamstring during an Aug. 9 practice, Claypool sat out the entire preseason slate, likely with his presence for the season opener in mind. Head coach Matt Eberflus expressed as much to Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic on Aug. 24, and indeed, Claypool will be ready to play Sunday against the Packers. With DJ Moore's addition to the Bears this offseason, Claypool has been bumped down to the team's third wide receiver behind Moore and Darnell Mooney, making it unclear how many targets he can expect from quarterback Justin Fields on a weekly basis.
