In his first regular season game with the Bears, Brandon Marshall showed he is still in sync with quarterback Jay Cutler. Marshall caught nine passes for 119 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's win over Indianapolis.
Fantasy Impact: Everyone expected this combination to revert to its lethal ways from years past in Denver, but this was a much better start than fantasy owners could have imagined. Cutler targeted Marshall a ridiculous 15 times throughout the game, nine more than any other receiver on the team. Marshall put up strong numbers in Miami even with multiple mediocre quarterbacks throwing to him, so there's no reason to think he can't outdo his performances from recent seasons. He will continue to be a major fact in your lineup throughout the 2012 season.
