Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Leads team with 14 targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel had seven catches (14 targets) for 57 yards in Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Rams.

Gabriel was targeted early and often, but Mitch Trubisky's inability to get him the ball downfield led to a lackluster fantasy line outside of full PPR formats. The 14 targets were a promising sign, as the 28-year-old failed to top seven looks since his incredible three-touchdown performance back in Week 3. It's hard to trust any Chicago receiving option given the inconsistent play under center, but Gabriel does appear to have a strong rapport with Trubisky, which gives the veteran PPR value heading into a matchup against the Giants on Sunday.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Scores fourth touchdown of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel caught four passes for 39 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's 20-13 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Gabriel scored his TD on a great play call that left a deep safety out of position while he easily outran his defender to the end zone. He's now posted at least 53 yards or a touchdown in four of his last five games, despite averaging just five targets per appearance. With his recent run of production, he's beginning to look like a player who can be trusted as a flex option.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Targeted three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel caught three passes for 69 yards in the Bears' 22-14 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

In a game that Mitchell Trubisky threw for just 125 yards, Gabriel was fortunate to come away with a respectable performance. On his 53-yard reception, the defense lost track of him, providing his quarterback with one of his easiest throws of the afternoon. He also helped to extend a drive with a critical catch on a third-down play. Although his targets are inconsistent on a week-to-week basis, he's posted at least 53 yards in three of his last four games, and he's emerging as a useful depth option on fantasy rosters.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Targeted six times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel caught four passes for 53 yards in Chicago's 17-16 loss to the Chargers on Sunday.

Gabriel was second on the team with six targets, and he had a chance for a big play when he was wide open deep down field, but the ball was significantly overthrown. Although he's posted at least 53 yards in two of his last three games, he also has a pair of games with fewer than 12 yards over the last four weeks, making him a difficult player to trust in fantasy lineups.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Nearly invisible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel caught one pass for six yards in the Bears' 36-25 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Gabriel was nearly invisible in this contest, largely because the Bears were unable to sustain any consistent offense, and Mitchell Trubisky was under extreme duress, keeping him from taking his time to locate receivers. Aside from his huge performance against Washington in Week 3, he's averaged 14 yards over his other three games, making him a volatile fantasy option with a scary floor.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Ready to return from concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (concussion) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Gabriel came back from a Week 6 bye as a full practice participant throughout the week. With Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) also set to return, the Chicago offense is in good health for a tricky matchup versus the red-hot Saints defense.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Practices fully again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Though Gabriel logged every rep in practice for the second day in a row, the Bears have yet to indicate that he's been removed from the NFL's concussion protocol. The wideout will still have two full days to receive clearance from an independent neurologist ahead of the Bears' matchup Sunday with the Saints.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Listed as full participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (concussion) practiced fully Wednesday.

There's been no word from the Bears that Gabriel has completed his journey through the concussion protocol, but he still may have to face an evaluation in front of an independent neurologist before he can suit up again. On a positive note, he participated in every drill Wednesday, putting himself in a great position to play for the first time since Week 3.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Practices Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (concussion) took part in Monday's practice, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.

This marks Gabriel's first on-field work since he suffered a concussion Week 3. The Bears won't release an injury report until Wednesday, but it's encouraging that he made an appearance at practice following the team's Week 6 bye.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Ruled out for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders in London.

Gabriel continues to deal with complications of a concussion suffered Week 3, getting listed as a DNP on all five of the Bears' injury reports in the interim. The team won't risk any sort of setback with the wide receiver as it embarks on the trip across the pond.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: No practice reps Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (concussion) was listed as a non-participant at Thursday's practice.

Gabriel's journey through the concussion protocol has been a slog to date, as he has yet to take the practice field or have anything aside from a DNP tag on the Bears' past five injury reports. Assuming another absence from Gabriel in London against the Raiders on Sunday, the Bears' pecking order at wide receiver will be Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller, Javon Wims and Cordarrelle Patterson.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday.

Gabriel has yet to practice since sustaining a concussion during a Week 3 victory at Washington. With no tangible progress to date in the protocol for head injuries, there's no telling when he'll be available to the Bears offense again. In Gabriel's absence this past Sunday against the Vikings, the Bears trotted out Allen Robinson, Javon Wims and Cordarrelle Patterson in the starting lineup, though Anthony Miller received far more offensive snaps (43 versus seven) than the latter.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Won't face Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (concussion) will not play Sunday against the Vikings, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Gabriel suffered a concussion toward the end of his three-touchdown performance in Monday's win over Washington. His upcoming absence leaves more work for Anthony Miller, Cordarrelle Patterson and Javon Wims, though Chicago might also give Tarik Cohen a few more snaps in the slot (and move Miller outside more).

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: No activity Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (concussion) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice.

Gabriel has kicked off Week 4 prep with back-to-back absences as he goes through the protocol for head injuries. He likely will need to make his presence felt Friday to have a chance to suit up Sunday against the Vikings.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Held out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel (concussion) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

In the midst of his three-touchdown outburst Monday at Washington, Gabriel suffered a concussion, an injury that must be taken case by case. With no practice reps to kick off Week 4 prep, he isn't exactly in a great spot, but two sessions remain to prove his health before a potential visit to an independent neurologist.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Out for remainder of Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel suffered a concussion and has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game against the Redskins, Brad Biggs of The Chicago Tribune reports.

Gabriel had a monster night before exiting the contest, leading the Bears with six receptions for 75 yards and three touchdowns. Look for Anthony Miller and Cordarrelle Patterson to potentially see some extra reps to close out Monday's game. Gabriel will have to pass concussion protocol testing this week before he can return to the field.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Two targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel caught one pass for 11 yards while adding an additional 14 yards on one rushing attempt in the Bears'16-14 victory over the Broncos on Sunday.

After seeing five targets in the opener, Gabriel saw just two in this contest, as the team went to a much more run-heavy approach. His fantasy value often comes from splash plays, so he'll be a difficult player to trust in weekly fantasy lineups.

September 6, 2019 11:08 AM
Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Posts 24 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel caught two passes for 24 yards in the Bears' loss to the Packers.

Gabriel was called for pass interference on a long completion, and he also had a deep reception overturned by replay, so despite his unimpressive numbers, there was potential for him to have had a much stronger performance. Although he may not see the career-high 93 targets he was given in 2018, his blazing speed will always give him splash-play potential, making him a player with a high variance of weekly fantasy performances.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Not suiting up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel is not expected to play in Friday's preseason contest against the Giants.

Gabriel is on track to miss his second straight preseason contest. He'll join fellow receivers Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller (ankle) and Cordarrelle Patterson on the sidelines, leaving reps available for depth wideouts such as Javon Wims and Riley Ridley. It remains to be seen whether Gabriel will take the field before Week 1.

Bears' Taylor Gabriel: Rests during preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gabriel was declared inactive for the Bears' preseason contest against the Panthers.

Most of the Bears' skill position starters sat this contest out, so there's no reason for concern. Going into his second year with the team, he's expected to retain his role as a starting receiver, and he'll look to build on a season in which he set career highs with 67 receptions and 688 yards. However, he struggled down the stretch last year, failing to exceed 33 yards in four of his last five games. He's looking like he'll be a depth option in most fantasy leagues this year.
