Jeffery has missed games throughout his career with nagging injuries. He missed six games in his rookie season and missed a handful more throughout his time in South Carolina. Look for the tall wideout to miss at least one game this year with a nagging injury.

Receptions – 90

Jeffrey broke out last season, despite having to play on the other side of All-Pro wideout Brandon Marshall. AJ quickly earned the trust of QB Jay Cutler and the wideout will see plenty of balls in 2014. Look for him to have another 90-catch season.

Receiving Yards – 1,377

Jeffery is one of the best wideouts in the game after the catch. He recorded five 100-yard performances last season alone, including two games in which he managed to go over the 200-yard mark. Jeffery be a dark horse option to lead the league in receiving yards this year.

Yards Per Catch - 15.3

Jeffery is an outstanding down field receiver. He fearlessly attacks the ball and the wideout knows how to find space against opposing defensive backs. AJ will once again average over 15 yards per grab this fall.

Touchdowns – 9

Jeffery has outstanding size and hands, both of which help him inside in the 20-yard line. However, Cutler tends to favor Marshall in the red zone, and that should keep AJ from reaching double-digit TDs this year.
