  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Role change likely

    Mooney (ankle) should now be the Bears' No. 2 receiver after the Bears acquired DJ Moore on Friday.

    Mooney proved to be an excellent receiver when he posted 1,055 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 2021. But last year, the Bears' passing offense struggled to start the year. Then in Week 12, Mooney fractured his ankle, and he ended the year with 493 yards. Expected to be back on the field in some capacity this spring while he recovers from the injury, he should be a much better fit as a No. 2 receiver, with Moore now expected to slot in as the top option. Mooney has shown the ability to get open at all levels of the field. Even though it's unlikely he reaches the 140 targets he saw in 2021, the quality of targets could increase with defenses focusing on Moore. After 40 wide receivers are off the board, Mooney is a player to consider in fantasy drafts for those who believe Chicago will try to open up its passing attack.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Should be back for OTAs

    Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said Tuesday that Mooney (ankle) should be back on the field in some capacity this spring, Courtney Cronin of reports.

    Mooney is working his way back from the season-ending surgery he underwent to repair a fractured left ankle, an injury he sustained in the Bears' Week 12 loss to the Jets. Before getting hurt, the third-year wideout was the top target for Justin Fields, hauling in 40 passes for 493 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games. The Bears are likely to address their receiving group this offseason, but Mooney should be locked into a starting role regardless of what additions Chicago makes.

  • Bears' Darnell Mooney: Ends season on injured reserve

    Mooney ended the season with 40 receptions for 493 yards and two touchdowns over 12 games.

    After breaking out with 1,055 yards and four touchdowns in 2021, it was a disappointing season for Mooney. Early in the season, he was limited by an offense that used Justin Fields as a drop-back passer behind a porous offensive line. As the Bears began to use Fields' legs more often, Mooney became more productive. Unless the Bears make adding wide receiver talent an offseason priority, Mooney could remain the team's top option in the passing game. He's under contract with the team through the 2023 season.
