Unless you live under a rock or have been locked into a four day bender on Grand Theft Auto V, you may have heard that this Alshon fellow is on quite a roll. Jeffery followed up his 107 yard Week 4 performance with a monster game in Week 5, securing 10 of 13 targets for 218 yards and a score. While Jay Cutler always prefers his favorite target Brandon Marshall, the gap is closing between Marshall and this youngster. Cutler and the Bears will throw enough to keep both players relevant, and Jeffery’s arrow is pointed straight up. With a Week 6 meeting with the New York Giants, we could see another double digit target total for Jeffery and a third straight dominant fantasy performance.
