At least he can laugh about it: Taylor Gabriel apologizes to fantasy owners after getting one reception vs. Saints


The Bears offense is struggling, which means any unfortunate fantasy owners putting stock into Bears offensive players were hurting on Sunday.

Bears wide receiver Taylor Gabriel had some fun with it at least. Gabriel and Tarik Cohen went to O’Hare for a promotional event where they scanned tickets and called in boarding groups at the airport.

Gabriel had just one catch for six yards in Sunday’s loss to the Saints. He went on the loudspeaker and apologized to his fantasy owners.

“Hopefully you guys got me on the bench last night,” Gabriel said. “I apologize.”

One young fan told him he had him in his lineup. Gabriel responded with “I owe you a hug,” and went over and hugged the kid.

Gabriel was targeted just twice. His six receiving yards were a season low.

The 28-year-old had a huge game Week 3 against the Redskins (6 receptions for 75 yards and three touchdowns), but suffered a concussion in that game. Sunday’s game against the Saints was Gabriel’s first game action since.
