Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Seven touches in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel caught four passes for 30 yards while adding another 17 yards on three rushing attempts in Monday's win over the Seahawks.

For a player who was largely thought to be a deep threat going into the season, it's becoming clear that the coaching staff simply wants to get the ball in his hands on short passes and runs to let him try to make plays with his speed. However, on his 12 touches this season, he's averaging just six yards, and although fantasy owners can't complain about the usage, the fact he's not being put in position to catch deep passes takes away much of his fantasy appeal. If this type of usage continues, he'll have more value in PPR leagues than in standard scoring.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Returns early from foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (foot) caught his only target for a 10-yard reception during Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs.

It was originally thought that Gabriel wouldn't return until the regular season began, but the speedy wideout progressed quickly through his rehab process. The coaching staff clearly wasn't ready to push it, limiting Gabriel to just a few snaps before he called it a day. Regardless of his impact on the game, Gabriel's availability bodes well for the offense with the regular season drawing near, as his ability to stretch opposing defenses can open things up for his teammates.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Hopeful to return Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Matt Nagy reported that he's very confident that Gabriel (foot) will be ready for Week 1, Larry Mayer of the Bears website reports.

It certainly would help the entire Bears offense if Gabriel could return to face Green Bay, as he possesses the deep speed to take the top off defenses, which potentially will create more space for his teammates. In terms of Gabriel's fantasy value, his big-play ability gives him weekly upside, but he's never been a high-volume target, which also gives him a low weekly floor.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Unlikely to go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (foot) isn't expected to play Saturday at Denver, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Gabriel is approaching the two-week mark in his recovery from a foot injury, which is conspiring to hold him out of preseason action. During pregame warmups, he was among a handful of Bears not in uniform, a sign that he won't take the field Saturday. Considering he signed a four-year, $26 million contract in the offseason, Gabriel is in the Bears plans in 2018, but his initial in-game snaps with the team will have to wait another week.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Only dealing with minor issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bears coach Matt Nagy said Gabriel's foot injury isn't serious, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Gabriel hasn't practiced since Saturday and likely will be held out of Thursday's preseason game against Cincinnati, but it doesn't sound as if he's in much danger of missing Week 1. Prospective fantasy owners would still like to see Gabriel at least once this preseason, hoping for a clue about how the Bears plan to use him. The four-year, $24 million contract is a strong hint in the direction of regular snaps, but Gabriel may be a low-volume deep threat more so than a consistent source of touches. Of course, the Bears could also take advantage of his speed with a steady diet of end-arounds and screen passes.
