Brandon Marshall makes fantasy hay despite being blown out

Michael Thomas

The Bears’ go-to wide receiver was his same old self against the Rams in Week 12. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall caught 10 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown in the team's 42-21 loss to the St. Louis Rams in Week 12. Marshall was targeted a game-high 12 times in the contest.

Fantasy impact: Although he went through a mid-season slump for a five game stretch earlier this season, Marshall is back to being a must-start in fantasy leagues these days.

He's now gone over 100 yards receiving in three of the last four games to go along with four touchdowns. The best thing about Marshall's season is that he's been able to produce with both Jay Cutler and Josh McCown at quarterback. That kind of consistent production from a receiver is rare given the Bears' circumstances.

Marshall will no doubt be heavily targeted next week when the Bears take on the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings are known for their weaker secondary unit and Marshall is simply too gifted and experienced not to do well in the game.
