Bears' Kevin White: Inefficient with team-high 14 targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White caught six passes for 62 yards on a team-high 14 targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.

It's tough to seem invisible when you get 14 targets, but White almost managed the feat until he made an acrobatic, 32-yard grab late in the fourth quarter, providing his only real highlight of the game. Zach Miller and Alshon Jeffery were both far more efficient, but the Bears will likely keep feeding their young wideout in what's quickly shaped up as a rebuilding year. Next up is a Detroit team that was roasted by Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson on Sunday.

Bears' Alshon Jeffery: Plays second fiddle to White and Miller
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jeffery (knee) caught five passes for 70 yards on seven targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to Dallas.

While not visibly bothered by his injury, Jeffery surprisingly finished just third on the team in targets, trailing Kevin White (14) and Zach Miller (nine). The lack of volume is starting to become a concern, even though Jeffery is averaging 90 yards per game. He has just 20 targets through three weeks and has yet to find the end zone, though the latter issue is largely a product of playing for a dreadful team. In any case, the injury-riddled Bears are worse than they were last season, and Jeffery also has more competition for targets than he did at the time. While he's still a weekly must-start in nearly all formats, expectations shouldn't be based on last year's massive volume. Jeffery will face the Lions in Week 4, potentially drawing a tough assignment against top CB Darius Slay.

Bears' Brian Hoyer: Mimicks Cutler as garbage-time hero
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hoyer completed 30 of 49 passes for 317 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.

With Jay Cutler (thumb) sidelined, the Bears went three-and-out on their first two drives, allowing Ezekiel Elliott and Co. to build a 24-3 lead by the half. Hoyer wasn't actually to blame, as the Bears were held back by penalties and an inconsistent rushing game, in addition to Dallas' dominance of possession. In fact, Chicago only ran 18 plays in the first half, including six on a drive that started at the team's own 25-yard line with 38 seconds remaining before the break. Hoyer finally took advantage of the favorable matchup after halftime, mostly honing in on Zach Miller and Kevin White, with the former accounting for both touchdowns. Things briefly got somewhat interesting midway through the fourth quarter, but Hoyer put the nail in his team's coffin with a sloppy fumble that could've easily been avoided. He'll draw another favorable matchup in Week 4 against Detroit, unless Cutler is ready to return.

Bears' Jeremy Langford: Exits with ankle injury after splitting work
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Langford left Sunday's game against the Cowboys in the third quarter with an ankle injury.

Langford got another start and played the first two drives, but Jordan Howard took most of the snaps and touches from that point forward, showing once again that Langford's role is tenuous. Last week it was Ka'Deem Carey who split first-half work with Langford, until the third-year pro was knocked out in the second quarter with a hamstring injury. Howard may end up as the Week 4 starter by default, though Langford is considered questionable to rejoin Sunday's game, which could be a sign his ankle injury isn't too serious. Regardless, Langford's brief tenure as the workhorse back is a thing of the past. Howard is the most appealing commodity in the Chicago backfield.

Bears' Brian Hoyer: Expected to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyer is expected to be under center for the Bears in Sunday's game at Dallas, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Hoyer has had the entire offseason to accustom himself with the Bears' offensive playmakers, namely Alshon Jeffery, who was afflicted by a knee injury during Week 3 prep. In 44 career games, Hoyer has completed 58 percent of his passes for 7,241 yards with 38 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.
