Alshon Jeffery

With the absence of Brandon Marshall, being traded to the New York Jets, Alshon is undoubtedly the number one receiver in Chicago now. No matter who you have passing to him, he will be a threat on the field. Jeffery has a knack for going up and snagging catches that seem next to impossible to make and has the awareness of his body to make sure his pass is completed in bounds. (Remind you of anyone?).

If he isn’t well covered, he has the ability to burn you deep and take it to the house for the touchdown. Regardless of the level of the team as a whole, look for Jeffery to be Jay Cutler’s go-to guy and safety net.
