Bears' Roquan Smith: Has floor game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded seven tackles in the Bears' 27-23 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Smith often rewards fantasy managers with double-digit tackle performances, but there simply weren't many opportunities in this contest to produce a big game. Overall, it was a floor game that didn't likely hurt IDP managers, but there certainly will be plenty of big games for Smith in the near future.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Back on field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (pectoral) has been participating in workouts with the Bears throughout training camp, Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports.

Smith has made a full recovery from the surgery he required last December to address the torn pectoral muscle he suffered in Week 14. The linebacker never looked in danger of missing training camp, but it's at least reassuring to see him back on the field for practices. With two 100-plus-tackle seasons on his resume, Smith looks like a high-end IDP option at linebacker once again in 2020.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Should be ready by training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (pectoral) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, Brad Biggs of The Chicago Tribune reports.

Smith suffered a torn pectoral muscle in Week 14 and underwent surgery later in December. General manager Ryan Pace expects Smith to be ready for training camp. Smith will be 23 years old to start the 2020 season, and he's recorded two straight campaigns with 100-plus stops.

Bears' Roquan Smith: On track for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (pectoral) is targeting a return to full health for training camp, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.

Smith's 2019 campaign was cut short when he suffered a torn pectoral Week 14 against the Cowboys, for which he underwent surgery and was placed on injured reserve. It's certainly positive news that the star linebacker is expected to be healthy for training camp, which would put him on track to once more be a top-five IDP option for the 2020 season.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Nagy confirmed Monday that Smith (pectoral) will require season-ending surgery and land on injured reserve.

Smith underwent further medical testing after last Thursday's win over the Cowboys, the results of which revealed that the star linebacker has indeed suffered a torn pectoral muscle. He'll need surgery to correct the matter, but should be ready to play well in advance of the 2020 season. With Danny Trevathan (elbow) having missed the last four games, the Bears could be forced to rely on Nick Kwiatkoski and Kevin Pierre-Louis at inside linebacker Week 15 against the Packers.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Torn pec feared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is believed to have suffered a torn pectoral muscle during Thursday's 31-24 win over the Cowboys, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Smith was forced out of action during the first quarter and wasn't able to return. The second-year linebacker will undergo an MRI on Friday to get further information about his injury, and if the torn pectoral is confirmed, he'll likely miss the rest of the 2019 season. Smith leads the Bears with 101 tackles (66 solo) through 12 games.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Potentially serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Nagy said after Thursday's 31-24 win over the Cowboys that the pectoral injury Smith suffered in the game "does not look good for him."

Smith picked up the injury in the first quarter of the game and was unable to return. Kevin Pierre-Louis stepped in for Smith at inside linebacker and did an admirable job, racking up six tackles (five solo) while helping to slow down an oftentimes explosive Dallas offense. The Bears will certainly miss Smith if he's out for an extended period of time, though, as he comfortably leads the team with 99 tackles on the season.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Ruled out with pec
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Cowboys with a pectoral injury, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Smith appeared to injure his chest area while attempting to tackle Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott on a two-yard touchdown plunge in the first quarter. The Bears' leading tackler looks as though he will replaced by Kevin Pierre-Louis at inside linebacker.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Massive performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith notched a pair of sacks and 14 tackles in the Bears' 24-20 win over the Lions on Thursday.

Smith was all over the field, as no other Bears player had more than eight tackles, and he also recorded the only sacks the team was able to generate. He's now posted at least 10 tackles in four of the last five games, and there are few better IDP options at the linebacker position.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Another strong outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith posted 11 stops in the Bears' 17-7 loss to the Rams on Sunday.

For the third-straight game, Smith posted double-digit tackles. After averaging eight tackles over the first six games of the season, he's become an elite weekly IDP.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Big performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded 11 tackles in Chicago's 20-13 victory over the Lions on Sunday.

Even though the Lions threw the ball 46 times, many of those passes were short, which helped allow Smith pile up double-digit tackles. After a four-game stretch in which he averaged seven tackles, he's now posted 21 tackles over his last two games, and he's beginning to regain the form that he showed in his amazing rookie season, when he was performing as an IDP star.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Notches 10 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith posted 10 tackles in Chicago's 22-14 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

In a game that Chicago trailed throughout, the Eagles piled up 35 rushing attempts, helping Smith to post his second-best fantasy performance of the season. After a standout second half of his rookie season, his performance has dipped a bit -- as he's averaging eight tackles but no sacks, making him a solid, but not elite, fantasy performer.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Productive afternoon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith tallied nine tackles in the Bears' 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

With the Raiders pulling out to a big first-half lead, they were able to compile 39 rushing attempts, leading to a busy day for Smith. He's averaging nine tackles over his last three games, and he'll continue to be a reliable weekly starter in IDP leagues.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Removed from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (personal) logged a full practice Friday and was absent from the Bears' final injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Raiders, Larry Mayer of the team's official website reports.

Smith was a late scratch from last week's victory over the Vikings due to personal reasons. However, he has been able to practice in full this week and looks on track to suit up for Week 5, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Status for Week 5 uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Nagy declined to say Thursday whether Smith will suit up Sunday against the Raiders, Madeline Kenney of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Smith practiced in full Wednesday and appears to have resolved his personal matters, but the situation may still be unfolding. Friday's final injury report of the week should shed some more definitive light on Smith's chances of taking the field in London.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Looks ready for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (personal) is expected to play in Sunday's game in London against the Raiders.

Smith was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, and it appears his personal issue has been resolved. He's still worth keeping an eye on when inactive are released 11:30 A.M. ET on Sunday in case he's a surprise inactive, but Smith looks ready to resume his duties as the Bears' starting inside linebacker.

Bears' Roquan Smith: May miss Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (personal) may not play in Sunday's game versus the Raiders in London, Chris Emma of 670 The Score reports.

Coach Matt Nagy didn't offer any details. "I'm going to leave it as it's completely a personal matter," Nagy said. "I'm just going to completely leave it at that." Smith was still on the sidelines during Week 4's win over the Vikings, so the expectation is it won't be a lengthy absence. If Smith sits out again, expect Nick Kwiatkoski -- who posted 10 tackles, one sack and a forced fumble against the Vikings -- to fill in as a starter.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Won't play in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (personal) is officially listed as inactive for Sunday's clash against Minnesota.

It's unclear why Smith needed to be sidelined for the game, but his absence will certainly hurt the Bears defense, as the unit is facing the top rushing offense in the NFC. With Smith out, look for Joel Iyiegbuniwe and Nick Kwiatkoski to see an increase in reps.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Doubtful versus Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (personal) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Vikings.

The details aren't clear, but it appears Smith won't be suiting up for this divisional matchup. The Bears' run defense will be further hampered, as Bilal Nichols (hand) is already ruled out and Akiem Hicks (knee) is questionable.

Bears' Roquan Smith: Big day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded 13 stops in Chicago's 16-14 victory over the Broncos on Sunday.

After a disappointing season opener in which he posted just five tackles, Smith came back with one of the dominant IDP performances fantasy owners had gotten used to seeing from him on a regular basis during his rookie season. He'll continue to be a top-shelf fantasy option each week.
