Weak performance

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-24

Claypool caught one pass for 15 yards in the Bears' 41-10 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Claypool was second on the team with four targets, but the Chicago offense was unable to move the ball until the Chiefs brought in their defensive backups late in the game. Although Claypool has seen increased snaps since Week 1, the anemic passing game may limit his potential to have consistent production.

Surprises with solid game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Claypool caught three passes for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 27-17 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

The Bears lost Darnell Mooney to a knee injury during the contest, and Claypool then functioned as the primary receiving complement to DJ Moore. Claypool led the team with eight targets, and he could get a chance to build on his encouraging effort if Mooney is forced to miss time.

Suiting up Week 2

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Claypool is listed as active ahead of Chicago's Week 2 matchup against Tampa Bay.

There had been some doubts about Claypool's gameday roster status following a disappointing Week 1 showing, both from an effort and overall production standpoint (he was held to zero catches on two targets despite playing 55 snaps). The Bears will ultimately give the fifth-year wideout a chance to work through these issues, but Claypool remains an incredibly risky fantasy option as the No. 3 wide receiver in a run-first Chicago offense.

Expected to play Week 2

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-14

Claypool is practicing as normal this week and is expected to play Sunday against the Bucs, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Claypool was dreadful in the Week 1 opener versus Green Bay, parlaying 58 offensive snaps into zero catches on two targets. Coach Matt Eberflus openly admitted the team was going to look into Claypool's Week 2 role. He simply can't be trusted in fantasy lineups until further notice.

Could be benched soon?

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-13

Coach Matt Eberflus was asked Wednesday about the possibility of demoting Claypool and told reporters the Bears are "looking at all the possibilities right now," Chris Emma of reports.

Claypool missed a bunch of blocks and finished without a catch on two targets in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Packers, operating as the No. 3 WR behind DJ Moore and Darnell Mooney. It isn't a role conducive to fantasy value even if Claypool plays well in real life, which is something he arguably hasn't done since the middle part of his 2020 rookie season. Lack of effort as a repeat theme isn't promising, nor is it a good look when one of the largest WRs in the league -- listed at 6-4, 238 -- repeatedly draws attention for poor blocking. Chicago beat reporters seemed to hint at the possibility of Equanimeous St. Brown being active instead of Claypool for Week 2 at Tampa Bay, with rookie Tyler Scott or veteran Trent Taylor likely taking the No. 3 receiver role in that scenario.

Shut out in opener

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-10

Claypool was targeted twice but failed to record a reception in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Packers.

Claypool was a non factor in a game that seven different Chicago players caught passes. The veteran has reached 30 yards once over his last eight games with the Bears, making him difficult to trust in fantasy lineups.

Avoids injury report

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-06

Claypool (hamstring) wasn't listed on the Bears' initial Week 1 injury report Wednesday.

Since injuring his hamstring during an Aug. 9 practice, Claypool sat out the entire preseason slate, likely with his presence for the season opener in mind. Coach Matt Eberflus expressed as much to Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic on Aug. 24, and indeed that will come to pass. With DJ Moore's addition to the Bears this offseason, Claypool has been bumped down to the team's third wide receiver behind Moore and Darnell Mooney, making it unclear how many targets he can expect from quarterback Justin Fields on a weekly basis.

Expected to be ready for Week 1

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-24

Coach Matt Eberflus said Thursday that he feels confident Claypool (hamstring) will be able to play Week 1 against the Packers, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Claypool opened training camp on the active/PUP list and then pulled his hamstring on Aug. 9 and has been sidelined ever since. Injuries have been Claypool's downfall in his time with the Bears. Once healthy, Claypool is expected to serve as Chicago's slot man between outside receivers DJ Moore and Darnell Mooney.

Won't play in preseason opener

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-12

Claypool (hamstring) isn't suited up for Saturday's preseason opener against the Titans, Courtney Cronin of reports.

Claypool tweaked his hamstring during practice Wednesday, and while it appears to be a minor issue, it's not surprising to see Chicago proceed with caution. The wideout's next chance to suit up for game action will come next Saturday against the Colts, but he'll likely have to practice at some point during the week to be cleared for that matchup.
