Bears | Brandon Marshall talks Jay Cutler

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 12:59:51 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall recently said he would have buyer's remorse regarding the team paying QB Jay Cutler a seven-year, $126 deal. However, Marshall did add that the blame for the Bears' offensive struggles doesn't solely lie on Cutler's shoulders. "It doesn't always fall on him. I guess that's why those guys are the highest paid players out there. Because when you win and everything is going good, they get all the glory. And when it's bad, they take more [blame] than what they should take.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Cutler's on-field shortcomings, he does have a superb matchup versus the New Orleans Saints this week. He'll cost $6,300 on FantasyScore if you want to plug him in your lineups. Marquess Wilson, Marshall's replacement, is also a nice option at just $3,000.

Bears | Brandon Marshall supports Jay Cutler

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 20:11:05 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall said he supports QB Jay Cutler, but he also said that he doesn't understand why the team's offense has been so out of sync this season.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall has suffered through the worst season since his rookie year, and while he is out for the year, the fantasy value of all Chicago's remaining offensive weapons is likely to continue to fluctuate over the final weeks as the Bears continue to play inconsistent football.

Bears | Brandon Marshall placed on IR

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 12:46:26 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ribs, lung) was officially placed on Reserve/Injured Monday, Dec. 8. He is done for the year.

Fantasy Tip: Marquess Wilson is a nice option off the waiver wire this week. He saw five targets in less than three quarters of playing time after Marshall left in Week 14.

Bears | Brandon Marshall's season over

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 12:54:55 -0800

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ribs, lung) will miss the rest of the season after breaking two ribs and suffering a collapsed lung in Week 14 Thursday, Dec. 4. Marshall remains in a hospital Friday, Dec. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett will benefit generously in the final four games of the season without Marshall. Marquess Wilson is expected to fill in for Marshall, but he's a flier in deep leagues and a desperation FantasyScore play moving forward.

Bears | Brandon Marshall out at least a week

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:37:46 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ribs) suffered two broken ribs in Week 14 Thursday, Dec. 4, and he also injured his lung. Marshall remains in the hospital, and he'll at least miss the team's Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints, and possibly more.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough break for those relying on Marshall in the fantasy playoffs. You can forget about him for a while at FantasyScore, as well. This will boost the values of Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett significantly, although Jay Cutler takes a hit in what has already been a very inconsistent season for him. Take a peak at Marquess Wilson in very deep leagues.

Bears | Brandon Marshall's season in doubt

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 05:17:14 -0800

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ribs) may have suffered broken ribs Thursday, Dec. 4, and is having his spleen examined as well. His season is in doubt.

Fantasy Tip: Martellus Bennett had a huge night with Marshall out with 12-84-1 in Week 14. He would likely continue to see increased targets with Marshall out. Joshua Morgan and Marquess Wilson could also see extended action.

Bears | Probable status for Brandon Marshall

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 13:54:41 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) was limited in practice for the third straight day Wednesday, Nov. 26, but is probable for Week 13 against the Detroit Lions.

Bears | Brandon Marshall limited again

Tue, 25 Nov 2014 13:52:43 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall ($6,900) should be fine to play on Thanksgiving. However, it may be tough for him to provide you with a nice return on your FantasyScore investment. He's facing the Detroit Lions, who have allowed only an average of 18.23 fantasy points to receivers all year.

Bears | Brandon Marshall limited

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 12:56:03 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) would have been limited had the team practiced Monday, Nov. 24. The practice status is based on estimation had the team actually practiced.

Fantasy Tip: Even on a short week, the fact that Marshall would have been limited is still promising considering he still has two full days to prepare for Thursday's game against the Detroit Lions.

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 13:06:36 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Both Marshall ($6,900) and Jeffery ($7,100) are solid options for your FantasyScore lineup this weekend against the Bucs. Tampa Bay allows the third-most fantasy points to wideouts per game at 26.54.

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:07:52 -0800

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 12:26:33 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Bears | Brandon Marshall misses practice

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 14:30:21 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall put up big numbers against the Green Bay Packers last week in garbage time just before injuring his ankle. His injury isn't believed to be serious, though, and the Bears expect him to play against the Minnesota Vikings. He's a must-start in standard leagues and remains a decent FantasyScore option for $6,800.

Bears | Brandon Marshall has chance to play

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 12:32:06 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) appears to have a good chance to play in Week 11 despite his ankle injury, according to head coach Marc Trestman.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor his practice participation during the week to see if he is on track to play in Week 11. Marshall is coming off a good Week 10 performance but has had an up and down season. Marshall could be a starting option this upcoming week if he is active for the game.

Bears | Brandon Marshall optimistic for Week 11

Mon, 10 Nov 2014 07:20:06 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) said he might miss some practice time this week, but he doesn't expect to miss the Week 11 game.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall got hurt earlier this season and dropped three touchdowns the next game. He's a difference maker, but he hasn't been the same kind of consistent cog in fantasy. His touchdown in Week 10 was his first one in five games. Keep an eye on his practice time.

Bears | Brandon Marshall injures ankle

Sun, 09 Nov 2014 20:47:02 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) left in the second half of the team's Week 10 game against the Green Bay Packers with an ankle injury and will not return. He had eight catches for 112 yards and a score before exiting.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for updates on the severity of the injury. The game was already out of reach when Marshall was injured so there is a chance the score could have played a factor in the decision to sit him for the remainder of the contest.

Bears | Brandon Marshall unhappy with QB

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 15:09:39 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall called out QB Jay Cutler in a heated locker room discussion after the team's Week 7 loss against the Miami Dolphins, a source said Sunday, Oct. 19. The source said there "are some very selfish individuals in the locker room." But it's not out of the ordinary for Marshall to strongly voice his opinion to Cutler, as the two are close friends off the field. Marshall also reportedly yelled at PK Robbie Gould.

Fantasy Tip: The argument shouldn't affect fantasy values any, and it is just part of football, competition and losing. If the Bears won this game, obviously things would be just fine.

Bears | Brandon Marshall's injury was serious

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 14:21:27 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) said that the ankle injury he suffered in Week 1 should have kept him out for around four weeks, but he battled through it and convinced the team to continue letting him play. He caught three touchdowns in Week 2, but has just six catches in three games since. "So last week was the first week where we really had a chance to get me involved," Marshall said. "The first two weeks, the doctors ruled me out. They said I wasn't going to play and I went to them and said, 'Just make it a game-time decision.'" Head coach Marc Trestman has acknowledged that Marshall has noticeably improved in the last two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall and the Bears have a tasty matchup against the Atlanta Falcons this weekend. If Marshall is back to full health (he's not on the injury report), he could bounce back in a big way. He'll cost you $7,500 (15.0% of cap).

Bears | Brandon Marshall needs more touches

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 13:21:46 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall needs more touches, according to head coach Marc Trestman. Marshall saw just five targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: It may have just been an anomaly, but the five targets are concerning. TE Martellus Bennett and WR Alshon Jeffery have been doing very well this year, which has hurt Marshall's value somewhat. That being said, Marshall is still a WR1 option going forward as long as he's healthy.

Bears | Brandon Marshall feeling better

Sat, 04 Oct 2014 10:20:55 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) is feeling better about his hampered ankle injury. Marshall said he feels more explosive and feels like he can "do pretty much everything."

Fantasy Tip: The injury negatively impacted Marshall last week, so this is certainly good news. He'll look to return to old form against the Carolina Panthers in Week 5 and is priced at $7,500 on FantasyScore.

Bears | Brandon Marshall probable for Week 5

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 11:31:01 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall will play against the Panthers, but you have to be concerned about his recent outings while playing banged up. At a price of $7,500 (15.0% of cap), Marshall may once again find it tough to return a profit for you at FantasyScore.

Bears | Full practice for Brandon Marshall

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 14:14:37 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: This is great news for Marshall, who appears to be getting past his ankle injury. Even though he hasn't done much the last few weeks while fighting his ailment, Marshall will still cost you $7,500 (15.0% of cap) at FantasyScore against the Carolina Panthers.

Bears | No restrictions for Brandon Marshall

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 15:08:12 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) practiced without restrictions Wednesday, Oct. 1, for the first time in a while. "It was good to get him (Marshall) back out there at full speed," head coach Marc Trestman said.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall's nagging ankle injury has limited him to just three catches for 25 yards and a score the last two weeks. The fact that he's back to a full practice early in the week is an encouraging sign that he'll put up better numbers in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers. However, start him at your own risk at FantasyScore.

Bears | Brandon Marshall questionable

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 11:31:23 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 26, and is questionable for the team's Week 4 game.

Fantasy Tip: If Marshall can't go, look for increased roles for Alshon Jeffery and Matt Forte. The match up against the Packers is a nice one, but the cost of $8,200 in FantasyScore may be a bit of a risk.

Bears | Brandon Marshall not practicing

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 13:52:38 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall's ankle injury isn't serious, but it required him to leave the game for a period of time in Week 3, and it kept him to only one catch in that Monday night affair. He'll likely be questionable again in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers. The matchup is nice, but if his ankle is still bothering him, playing him at $8,200 at FantasyScore is a risk.

Bears | Brandon Marshall not on practice field

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 13:51:57 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall had just one catch for six yards in Week 3, as his ankle limited him severely and caused him to come out of the game for a bit. Continue to monitor his status throughout the week. He has an excellent matchup against the Green Bay Packers in Week 4, but if his ankle is still bothering him, he may not be a smart play at FantasyScore.

Bears | Brandon Marshall has quiet night

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 23:23:32 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) was held to just one catch for six yards in the team's Week 3 win over the New York Jets Monday, Sept. 22. Marshall was limited with a sore ankle.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall's ankle definitely was responsible for his lack of production Monday night, and he even left the game shortly. Moving forward, you have to wonder how much of an impact his injury will play.

Bears | Brandon Marshall returns in second half

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 19:22:25 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) was back on the field in the second half after leaving the team's Week 3 contest Monday, Sept. 22, with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall actually had a touchdown reception called back because of a penalty on Chicago's first possession of the second half and showed no ill effects from the injury. It's still worth checking his status during the week, but for now, Marshall looks like a safe play in FantasyScore for Week 4.

Bears | Brandon Marshall to locker room

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 18:57:44 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) went to the locker room after injuring his ankle in the team's Week 3 game Monday, Sept. 22, and his return has been downgraded to questionable after the team originally announced his return as probable.

Fantasy Tip: The situation is definitely worth monitoring at this point after the downgrade. Marshall has a solid matchup in Week 4 against a Houston secondary that was torched in Week 3 by Eli Manning, but make sure Marshall's ankle injury isn't going to be an issue before paying for him at FantasyScore.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) left the game Monday, Sept. 22, with an ankle injury but is expected to return after being looked at by trainers.

Bears | Brandon Marshall expected to go

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 08:05:00 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) is expected to play Monday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall ($8,100; 16.2% of your cap) is one of the most expensive plays on FantasyScore this week. He exploded last week with Alshon Jeffery (ankle) gimpy. The New York Jets are likely to be without CB Dee Milliner (ankle, quadriceps), and Marshall could have a good matchup depending on how the Jets plan to attack the Bears' offense.

Sat, 20 Sep 2014 11:04:21 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) was out for the second straight day Friday, Sept. 19, but he's expected to play in Week 3 against the New York Jets Monday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall will cost you a pretty penny ($8,100; 16.2% of salary cap) at FantasyScore against the Jets, but he might be worth it.

Bears | Brandon Marshall doesn't practice

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 14:52:48 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: After being questionable yet playing and excelling in Week 2, we'd be surprised if Marshall didn't suit up in Week 3 on Monday night against the New York Jets. He'll be expensive again at FantasyScore ($8,100), but it could be worth the investment against a weak NY secondary.

Bears | Brandon Marshall scores three TDs

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 20:35:25 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) scored three touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Marshall has a hefty $7,600 (15.2% of your cap) price tag on FantasyScore this week. You should avoid him this week due to his price tag and considerable injury concerns.

Bears | Brandon Marshall questionable Sunday

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 13:06:27 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers after not practicing Friday, Sept. 12. However, he participated in the walk-through portion of practice. Head coach Marc Trestman said the team will continue to monitor Marshall's progress. Marshall said that he plans to play.

Fantasy Tip: We would be surprised if Marshall didn't suit up in Week 2, but you'll want to check back Sunday afternoon. He's the second-most expensive receiver at FantasyScore ($7,600; 15.2% of cap), so you might want to avoid him anyway.
