Brandon Marshall looks to continue rolling for Bears, keeping fantasy value high

Jonathan Daniel

Marshall had the Bears first back-to-back 100-yard games since 1999. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall had his first back-to-back 100-yard games since 2010, and the first time a Bear has done that since 1999. Marshall credits offensive coordinator Mike Tice with creating solid opportunities for him this season, something he wasn't getting a lot of in Miami.

"What I like about what we're doing is we're not trying to force me the ball," Marshall said. "When we do that, we may make some mistakes. We're relying on the guys around us to make some plays, and when I get my opportunity we'll take advantage.

The Bears take on the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football in Week 7, a team that he has 19 catches for 198 yards against in two career games.

Fantasy Take: Teaming back up with Jay Cutler for the first time since his Broncos days, Marshall is hitting on all strides and right back to being a Pro Bowl receiver and fantasy star. He hasn't record 100 catches in a season since 2009, after he had three straight years, but he's on pace for 112 this year.

Even though nobody else on the team has even 200 yards receiving this year, teams can't just ignore the deep threat abilities of Alshon Jeffery, Devin Hester, and Kellen Davis, so the opportunities should continue for Marshall in bunches. He is a legit WR1 this year, competing for the overall top spot at his position.
