Friday PM Update: Claypool has been ruled OUT for Sunday’s game due to his knee injury. In a tough matchup against the Eagles, Justin Fields will turn to Equanimeous St. Brown, Dante Pettis and Byron Pringle in the passing game.

Thursday update: Claypool was once again not practicing on Thursday, per Dan Wiederer. It looks unlikely that he’ll be able to play this week.

Week 15 of the NFL season will see the Chicago Bears take on the Philadelphia Eagles. This feels like a David vs. Goliath-type NFC matchup, so the Bears are going to have to play their best to have a chance in this game. Quarterback Justin Fields is dealing with an illness, but his top wide receiver, Chase Claypool, is dealing with a knee injury and missed practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy football implications for Week 15

Claypool was given a fresh start at the NFL trade deadline. He was traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers to the Bears and, with an injury to Darnell Mooney, is the team’s No. 1 wide receiver. He has played in five games for his new team and has 12 receptions on 22 targets for 111 yards. Claypool has a solid outlook for the future, but Fields’ passing this season has left much to be desired. Claypool should see a high target share this week, but he is too risky of a play for your Week 15 fantasy football lineups.
