Brandon Marshall helps fantasy owners with 95 yards, one touchdown

Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 95 yards and one touchdown in Chicago's Week 15 win over the Cleveland Browns. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

The return of Jay Cutler meant business as usual for Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall. Marshall finished Sunday's game with 95 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's win over the Cleveland Browns.

Marshall was targeted a team-high 13 times, more than double any other Bears receiver. Two of Marshall's targets resulted in costly interceptions for Cutler. However, Cutler didn't shy from targeting Marshall throughout the rest of the afternoon, eventually connecting with him for an impressive touchdown while being blanketed by Browns cornerback Joe Haden. The Marshall and Cutler chemistry appeared to be in full force.

Fantasy impact: With his touchdown on Sunday bringing his season total to 10, it marked the third time in Marshall's eight-year career he's reached double digit touchdowns. Marshall owners in fantasy football may have been a little nervous at the start of the game, as Cutler started out the afternoon shaky. He ultimately recovered, though, targeting Marshall more than any other Bears player by a wide margin. Marshall will continue as a WR1 against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16.
