Alshon Jeffery will replace Calvin Johnson (knee) in the Pro Bowl.

It's a well-deserved honor for Jeffery. In just his second NFL season, he put up 89 catches for 1,421 yards with seven touchdowns while grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 8 wideout. He'll join Brandon Marshall as the first duo of Bears receivers ever selected to the Pro Bowl in the same year.

Alshon Jeffery caught three passes for 80 yards in Chicago's Week 17 loss to the Packers.

Jeffery's final catch should have gone for a 68-yard touchdown, but he was incorrectly ruled down at the one-yard line. For reasons unknown, Chicago declined to challenge. Jeffery caps his breakout sophomore campaign with 89 catches for 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns. His yards led the team. Jeffery will have a hard time matching the yardage in 2014 with Brandon Marshall still in his prime, but is a bonafide WR1 with a ceiling that's through the roof in Dynasty leagues.

Alshon Jeffery had six catches for 76 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 loss to the Eagles.

Jeffery was held out of the end-zone this week after scoring four touchdowns in his last three games. He shared the team lead with nine targets, but was held to just two catches in the second half. The Bears take on the Packers to decide the NFC North in their regular season finale. Jeffery had five catches for 60 yards and a touchdown against the Packers back in Week 9.

Alshon Jeffery caught five passes for 72 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's Week 15 win at Cleveland.

Jay Cutler (ankle) was back in the mix and looked for his bro Brandon Marshall relentlessly (13 targets). Jeffery ended up with only five targets, but he made yet another "play of the week" kind of catch. With 11 minutes left in the game and the Bears down by seven, Cutler essentially threw a high Hail Mary into double coverage and Jeffery somehow came down with it for a 45-yard score -- his fourth touchdown in the last three weeks. Jeffery is going to run free all day against the Eagles in Week 16, so getting a few less targets at the expense of Marshall isn't a concern. The second-year man will be a borderline WR1.

Alshon Jeffery caught four passes for 42 yards in Chicago's Week 12 loss to the Rams.

Jeffery added one rush for four yards, and had a 27-yard run called back by a dubious holding penalty. Jeffery got out-targeted 12-8 by Brandon Marshall in getting held below 80 yards receiving for just the third time in eight games. Jeffery will be a borderline WR1 in a juicy Week 13 matchup with the Vikings.

Alshon Jeffery caught five passes for 60 yards and one touchdown in Week 9 against the Packers.

Jeffery was targeted nine times. The Chicago passing game didn't skip a beat with Josh McCown filling in for an injured Jay Cutler (groin). McCown had no issues completing short, quick passes, and he eventually found Jeffery for a six-yard score in the third quarter. It proved to be the game-winning touchdown. Jeffery beat Davon House and high-pointed a jump ball with his strong mitts on the play. At the season's midway point, Jeffery is on pace to catch 76 passes for 1,242 yards and six touchdowns. He's a legit WR2 in this offense.

Alshon Jeffery caught four passes for 105 yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Washington.

Jeffery continues to impress. He went up over the middle and took an illegal blow from head-hunting Brandon Merriweather, but held onto the ball and only missed a couple plays. Jeffery now has three 100-yard games in the last four weeks and is averaging 9.0 targets per day during that span. He's a WR2 candidate with Jay Cutler (groin), but will only be a WR3 if Josh McCown is forced into starts.
