Taylor Gabriel, Ben Braunecker, Javon Wims Out Again

Chicago Bears wide receivers Taylor Gabriel (concussion) and Javon Wims (knee) and tight end Ben Braunecker (concussion) all missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday. All three are unlikely to play in the divisional tilt against the Packers on Sunday. Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller are both in play in most fantasy leagues in Week 15. A-Rob went for seven catches and 102 yards in the season opener against Green Bay, while Miller had zero grabs on just one target. Miller has come on strong of late, though, after a slow start to the year. Rookie Jesper Horsted is the best bet for production at tight end with Braunecker injured, but he should remain far away from starting lineups.

Taylor Gabriel, Ben Braunecker Still In Concussion Protocol

Chicago Bears wide receiver Taylor Gabriel (concussion) and tight end Ben Braunecker (concussion) are still in the league's concussion protocol and didn't practice on Wednesday. Wide receiver Javon Wims (knee) also missed practice. Gabriel and Braunecker are questionable, at best, and obviously shouldn't be counted on in fantasy lineups for Week 15 against the Packers. Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller are the only Chicago pass-catchers worthy of being in fantasy lineups this Sunday. Rookie Jesper Horsted is the best bet at tight end if Braunecker misses another game, but he's off the fantasy radar.

Taylor Gabriel, Ben Braunecker Ruled Out For Thursday

Chicago Bears wide receiver Taylor Gabriel (concussion) and tight end Ben Braunecker (concussion) missed practice all week and have been ruled out for Thursday night against the Cowboys. It'll be the second straight missed game for both players. Anthony Miller went off for season highs in catches (nine) and yards (140) in the Week 13 win against the Lions last week with Gabriel out. While the Cowboys present a much tougher matchup, Miller will be in play as a deep league flex option this week. Rookie Jesper Horsted caught his only pass for a touchdown last week, but he'll be a desperation TE2 streamer with Braunecker out again.
