Nerdy Football Analysis: As part of John Fox’s initiative to help fantasy owners as little as possible, the team is refusing to let Jeffery speak with reporters this week. The Bears’ new top receiver hasn’t practiced since early August as far as we know, which should probably outweigh the team’s hinting that he will be ready for Week 1. Current owners need to start making alternate plans for this week and possibly beyond while late drafters probably need to bump him down their draft board a round or two.
