RISER – Alshon Jeffery (WR, CHI)
Returning from a four-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs, 26-year-old Alshon Jeffery was quieted for the most part before coming alive right at the end. With the red-hot Green Bay Packers in town, Bears quarterback Matt Barkley targeted Jeffery just once through the first three quarters. As Chicago pulled off a furious comeback in the fourth, however, the Pro Bowl wideout was at the forefront. Jeffery was targeted eight times in the fourth, making six catches for 89 yards and a touchdown. Making those who trusted him with their playoff fortunes sweat, he wound up having a solid return game. With the Washington Redskins traveling to Soldier Field for a Christmas Eve matchup, Jeffery figures to be a strong play for any fantasy football managers that feature him on their squads. With a quarterback that isn’t afraid of throwing the football, trust Jeffery to make some plays on Saturday.
