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.

Alshon Jeffery caught just one pass for 27 yards in Chicago's Week 6 win over the Giants.
Coming off a 10/218/1 demolition of the Saints, Jeffery drew only five targets. He hurt his cause with a drop, and wasn't on the same page with Jay Cutler on two potential deep balls. Despite the limited looks, Jeffery was inches away from a much better night. Jeffery was bound to experience some hiccups as he draws more defensive attention, but he'll remain a high-end WR3 for Week 7 against the Redskins' sub-par secondary.

Alshon Jeffery (ankle) remained limited in Bears practice Tuesday.
There's been no indication Jeffery's "injury" is a concern. Averaging 7.3 catches for 125.3 yards over his past three games, Jeffery is locked in as a high-end WR3 against the Giants' terrible defense.

Brandon Marshall said Alshon Jeffery "could be the best to ever do it."
Marshall was heaping hyperbole on his teammate following Jeffery's 10/218/1 line against the Saints. But it's obvious the Bears found a gem by scooping up Jeffery in the second round of the 2012 draft. He would have been a surefire first-rounder if not for a disastrous final season at South Carolina that saw him fall victim to weight gain and poor quarterback play. Jeffery will come back to earth as defenses start taking him more seriously, but he's a surefire WR3 against the Giants Thursday night.

Alshon Jeffery had the best game of his young career in Chicago's Week 4 loss to the Lions, catching five passes for 107 yards and a touchdown.
He also added 27 yards on a rush. The 100-yard afternoon was the first of Jeffery's career, and featured 2-3 tough catches. He flashed extremely strong hands on his 14-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. The only blemish was the fact that Jeffery was Jay Cutler's intended target on two of his three interceptions, but neither pick was Jeffery's fault. With 12 catches for 158 yards over his past two games, Jeffery is now on pace for a 72/844/4 line. He's in the WR3 conversation.

Alshon Jeffery had seven catches for 51 yard in Sunday night's Week 3 win over the Steelers.
Jeffery was able to bounce back after being limited to one catch last week. He picked up the majority of his yardage on the Bears' opening drive, and had just three receptions in the second half. Jeffery tied with Brandon Marshall for a team-high eight targets and was the clear No. 2 option in the passing game. His role should continue to grow moving forward.
