Struggles in loss
Mooney caught five passes for 27 yards in the Bears' 33-22 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.
Between the Cardinals rolling coverage toward Chicago's top receiver along with Andy Dalton having very little time to throw, Mooney was unable to get anything going downfield. With the Bears playing from behind in the fourth quarter, Mooney was able to catch four of his five passes on the day to provide his fantasy managers with a decent floor performance. Going forward, Mooney could easily perform as a top-30 wide receiver as the lead receiver for the Bears, and he could see extra space to operate if Allen Robinson (hamstring) can return to action soon.
