News: Young amassed four tackles and a sack in Monday's win over the Jets. Impact: Young has managed to post that same stat line in each of his three games, with the exception of his two-sack performance in Week 2. The 12 tackles and four sacks amount to incredible production for a player who isn't even a starter for the Bears, and it's probably time that those in IDP leagues take notice. The Bears' willingness to use Young frequently on passing downs should continue to afford him opportunities to pick up sacks, especially as opposing offensive lines focus most of their attention on double-teaming stalwart Jared Allen on the other side of the field.(RotoWire, )

News: Young had two sacks and four total tackles in Sunday's win over the 49ers. Impact: Young feasted on backup tackle Jonathan Martin, using his excellent quickness to win the edge and track down the elusive Colin Kaepernick. With big-money signings Lamarr Houston and Jared Allen mostly quiet through the first two weeks, the under-the-radar addition of Young in the offseason has proven to be a wise one by the Bears. Young has three sacks and eight total tackles despite coming off the bench in both of the team's games.(RotoWire, )

News: Young had a productive debut for the Bears in Sunday's loss to the Bills, recording four tackles, including the team's only sack. Impact: Coming off the bench Sunday, Young outshone both of the Bears' more high-profiled offseason defensive end signings, Jared Allen and Lamarr Houston, who combined for two tackles on the afternoon. Given the significant money committed to Allen and Houston, Young is unlikely to displace either as a starter, but he'll still rotate into the game fairly regularly in passing situations.(RotoWire, )
