Inman failed to see a target in Sunday's 33-7 victory over the Bengals.
Inman's easily been the Bears' most productive receiver in each of the previous four weeks, so it was shocking that he didn't have a single pass thrown in his direction when Mitchell Trubisky threw for 271 yards. After having averaged over seven targets in his first three games with the team, he's been targeted twice over his last two contests, and he now must be considered merely a dart throw as a fantasy option.
Inman caught two passes for 21 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 15-14 loss to the 49ers.
With Mitchell Trubisky throwing just 15 passes, there wasn't much production to go around, but fortunately, Inman scored the only offensive touchdown of the day for the Bears. This was the first time in four games since coming to the Windy City that he's posted fewer than 43 yards, and he should continue to be a useful fantasy option, especially in games when the team is expected to play from behind.
Inman caught four of nine targets for 64 yards in Sunday's 31-3 loss to Philadelphia.
It was an ugly game for the Bears, but Inman walked away with three more targets than any other receiver and was the only Bear to have more than two catches. He has led Chicago in receiving yards in each of his three games with the squad -- the kind of attention he was not seeing in Los Angeles. The problem is, though, how valuable can a leading receiver be on a team that has averaged 162 yards per game passing under Mitchell Trubisky?
Inman (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Despite being listed as questionable for the Week 12 clash, Inman never seemed in much jeopardy of missing the contest after turning in a full practice Friday. Since being acquired from the Chargers at the deadline, Inman has quickly established a rapport with quarterback Mitch Trubisky and emerged as the Bears' top wideout. He's registered nine catches for 131 yards on 13 targets in his two games with the club.
Inman (groin) was a full practice participant Friday but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Philadelphia.
Following limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, a return to full participation suggests Inman is on the right side of the questionable tag. The midseason trade acquisition has emerged as Mitchell Trubisky's favorite option, catching nine of 13 targets for 131 yards the past two weeks. The Eagles have been solid against the pass, but there's at least the potential for serious volume Sunday due to the Bears' status as heavy underdogs.
