Bears' Tanner Gentry: Catches three passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry caught three passes for 31 yards in the Bears' preseason loss to the Giants on Friday.

After shining in the 2018 preseason, Gentry followed up his zero-catch performance of last week with an efficient but unspectacular follow-up effort. He's currently buried on the depth chart, and it appears that he faces long odds of cracking the 53-man roster.

Bears' Tanner Gentry: Posts no stats in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry failed to catch either of his two targets in Chicago's 23-13 preseason loss to Carolina on Thursday.

Although he's shined at times over the previous two preseasons, Gentry is buried on a depth chart that goes 10 deep at wide receiver. Unless he can put together an amazing preseason, he may be fighting an uphill battle to secure a roster spot for the regular season.

Bears' Tanner Gentry: Signs with Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears signed Gentry to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.

Gentry appeared in four games with the Bears in 2017, hauling in three of six targets for 35 yards. However, despite leading the team in receptions during the 2018 preseason, he failed to make the 53-man roster. He'll have another opportunity to do so after signing a reserve/future contract.

Tanner Gentry: Waived by Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry was waived by the Bears on Saturday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Gentry led the Bears in receptions throughout the preseason, but still wasn't able to secure a spot on the team's 53-man roster. He'll be placed on waivers before potentially returning as a practice squad candidate.

Bears' Tanner Gentry: Posts 54 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry caught six passes for 54 yards Thursday against the Bengals.

Gentry led the Bears with 11 targets, but he primarily played with the third-string offense in the second half. Although he's been solid in camp for the second consecutive year, he's battling for a roster spot, and there's a strong possibility he finds his way onto the practice squad as he did for most of the 2017 season.

Bears' Tanner Gentry: Finds end zone against Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry caught three passes for 19 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 17-16 loss to the Ravens.

Gentry caught a 10-yard TD strike from third-string quarterback Tyler Bray on the last drive of the game to pull the Bears a within one point. During the contest, his production came against the deep reserves in the second half of a game in which Chicago started their primary backup receivers. Although he had a phenomenal training camp in 2017, he spent most of the season on the practice squad before hauling in three passes for 35 yards in four games while on the 53-man roster. With Chicago having overhauled their wide receiver corps in the offseason, Gentry will battle in the hopes of landing one of the last spots on the Week 1 roster, although he faces long odds.

Bears' Tanner Gentry: Inks reserve/future contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears signed Gentry to a reserve/future contract Monday.

Gentry moved from the Bears' practice squad to the active roster multiple times this season, ultimately finishing the year on the former. The Wyoming product is a nifty route-runner who should have a real shot to claim a spot on the Bears' unsettled depth chart with a strong offseason.

Tanner Gentry: Joins Bears' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry landed on the Bears' practice squad Tuesday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Gentry has bounced back and forth between the Bears' active roster and practice squad throughout the season. Outside of two receptions for 27 yards in Week 2, the rookie has failed to make much of an impression in the league so far. He will presumably stay on the team's practice squad until injures afford him another opportunity on the 53-man roster.

Tanner Gentry: Waived by Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry was waived by the Bears on Saturday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gentry had one reception for eight yards on three targets since rejoining the Bears in mid-October, and the Bears' run-heavy offense made him essentially a nonfactor. The 22-year-old is expected to return to the team's practice squad, assuming he clears waivers.

Bears' Tanner Gentry: Catches one pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry caught his only target in Sunday's 17-3 victory over the Panthers.

With the Bears playing with the lead for almost the entire contest, the coaching staff asked Mitchell Trubisky to throw just seven passes. As a result, Gentry was the only Chicago receiver to see a target in a hyper-conservative game script. Although he's a starting receiver, he'll be difficult to use in fantasy lineups until he produces something. In theory, he would be Chicago's primary deep threat, but it seems that the team only wants to throw downfield if absolutely necessary.

Bears' Tanner Gentry: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry was previously dealing with a hip injury but participated fully at the Bears' practice Thursday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Gentry was a limited participant at practice Wednesday but the injury doesn't appear to be anything serious. The 22-year-old started at wide receiver in Chicago's overtime win over Baltimore on Sunday, but he saw only one target and may not receive consistent opportunities with a rookie quarterback in a run-heavy offense.

Bears' Tanner Gentry: Targeted once in Week 6 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry failed to catch his lone target in Chicago's 27-24 overtime defeat of the Ravens.

Gentry was listed as a starting receiver, and he and Kendall Wright were the only Chicago wideouts to be targeted in a game in which Mitchell Trubisky put up just 16 pass attempts. Although nothing that happened in this game provides optimism for Gentry's fantasy outlook, the fact that he's in the starting lineup makes him a player to watch, as he could emerge as a depth option for fantasy managers.

Bears' Tanner Gentry: Re-signs with Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears signed Gentry off their practice squad Wednesday, Adam L. Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

It's Gentry's second stint with the Bears this season, after he previously caught two passes from former starting quarterback Mike Glennon in the Week 2 loss to the Buccaneers. Gentry was waived after that contest, but will rejoin the receiving ranks again to provide new signal caller Mitchell Trubisky with an additional option to lean on. Gentry showed a strong rapport with Trubisky in training camp, most notably hauling in a 45-yard touchdown pass in the Bears' third preseason game. Gentry isn't expected to see many offensive snaps in Week 6 against the Ravens, but he could see his opportunities increase if the options above him on the depth chart continue to be unimpressive.

Tanner Gentry: Returns to Bears' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry signed with the Bears' practice squad Thursday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

As expected, the Bears will keep Gentry within the organization after waiving him following Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Gentry caught two balls for 27 yards in the blowout loss. Gentry could be promoted again should Chicago need added depth at wide receiver at any point this season, but it's unlikely he makes much of an impact on the active roster.

Tanner Gentry: Let go by Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry was waived Tuesday by the Bears, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Gentry was added to the active roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers and caught two passes for 27 yards. He'll now likely return to the team's practice squad after clearing waivers.

Bears' Tanner Gentry: Posts 27 yards in professional debut Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry caught two passes for 27 yards in Sunday's 29-7 loss to the Buccaneers.

After the Bears lost Kevin White (shoulder) for the season, Gentry was added to the active roster but played a minor role in this contest. Based on his training camp performance, he profiles as a deep threat and eventually could carve out a role in that capacity, but for now, he'll be difficult to place in fantasy lineups.

Bears' Tanner Gentry: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gentry was promoted to the Bears' active roster Tuesday, Adam L. Jahns of the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Gentry had a strong training camp with the Bears and carried that over to the preseason where he pulled in four receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown. However, he was unable to land a spot on the final roster and signed to the team's practice squad instead. With fellow receiver Kevin White heading to injured reserve with a broken shoulder, that opens up a spot for Gentry on the active roster. While Gentry's promotion is encouraging, he's still buried on the depth chart and should have a tough time garnering a significant amount of targets.
