Brandon Marshall gives fantasy owners 113 yards, TD

Jonathan Daniel

Marshall has been very consistent through two games this year. We break down the fantasy implications.

Wide receiver Brandon Marshall caught seven passes for 113 yards and a score Sunday, as the Chicago Bears squeaked out a win over the Minnesota Vikings 31-30.

Marshall averaged 16.1 yards per reception, a week after eight catches for 104 yards. He now has two scores and 20 total targets on the year.

Fantasy impact: Little has changed about Marshall's value so far in the season - he is quarterback Jay Cutler's favorite toy, and is still one of the top handful of fantasy wide receivers in the league.

With 10 targets apiece in each game this season, Marshall could maintain that pace all year and have a huge season. The Bears' offense appears to be more balanced overall, which could give Marshall the advantage of defenses not being able to prepare for just him.
