Brandon Marshall had five catches for 71 yards in Week 3. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall had five catches for 71 yards and zero touchdowns in Week 3 against the St. Louis Rams. Marshall led the team with 11 targets, but only connected on 45% of them, including a 4th quarter drop near the goal line. The Bears went on to win 23-6.

Fantasy Impact: Most of Marshall's yardage came on a 34-yard reception. He struggled along with the rest of the Bears' offense, who were held to 283 total yards and had only one offensive TD. It was a sloppy, muddled affair, and things won't get any easier for the Bears when the face the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4.
