Brandon Marshall scores for fantasy owners

Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Marshall scored his 10th touchdown of the season in a losing effort. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall had a relatively quiet day, by his standards. Against the Green Bay Packers in Week 15, Marshall grabbed six receptions on seven targets for 56 yards and one touchdown. He scored in the first quarter to put the Bears up 7-0 early.

That lead was short-lived, however, as the Bears fell 21-13 to continue their tailspin.

Fantasy Impact: Disappointing game? By Marshall's standards, it probably is. It's the first time he hasn't had 10+ catches since Week 11.

Still, fantasy owners will be happy with the touchdown, and there's really nothing to worry about here. Marshall is a no-brainer WR1 start against the Cardinals as the Bears try to salvage their playoff chances.
