Some may have forgotten about Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery during his four-week absence earlier in the season. The fourth-year pro has come back from his hamstring injury in style, however, with back-to-back 100-yard games.

During his team’s 23-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, Jeffery led the Bears with 10 catches for 116 yards and a touchdown. Minnesota’s secondary was simply overmatched when trying to cover Chicago’s 6-foot-3-inch field-stretcher.

Jeffery’s 116-yard performance on Sunday followed up a 147-yard outing against the Detroit Lions in Week 6. The Bears lost that game, too, so his incredible contributions have only come in losing efforts as of late.

Regardless, Jeffery’s fantasy owners should be happy he’s back in the lineup and producing for the Bears again.
