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.

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.

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.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall said he would like to play at least six more years in the NFL. Marshall said one of his goals is to surpass the numbers put up by Hall of Fame WR Cris Carter. "They're going to have to rip the jersey off of my back [for me to stop playing]," Marshall said. "I've always said I want to play 14 years. That's always been my goal. But maybe [I'll play until I'm] 36 years old. Who knows?
"I'm trying to pass Cris Carter in everything. I don't think I have it in me to go for Jerry [Rice]. That's 20 years I would have to play. Maybe with modern medicine and all this new technology, I could potentially play that long, but I've had three hip surgeries. I'm just asking for six more [years in the league]."

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 10:31:26 -0800
Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall is likely to be matched up often against Dallas Cowboys CB Brandon Carr in Week 14. "I don't like playing against Brandon Carr," Marshall said. "He presents a lot of tough challenges throughout a game. You'll notice he changes up his game when he plays against bigger receivers. He's strong. He's physical. He plays that way against guys like myself. I absolutely hate the matchup. It's like playing chess out there with him. Every single play is a battle. He just makes you work so hard."

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall gave Baltimore Ravens CB Lardarius Webb credit for doing a great job against him in past meetings. The two will battle again in Week 11 when the Bears meet the Ravens at Soldier Field Sunday, Nov. 17. "He pretty much dominated me," Marshall said. "You look on piece of paper, and you see that he's a fairly small guy compared to other guys around the league. But he's probably one of the strongest corners I've ever faced."
Fantasy Tip: Marshall is still a must-start in all fantasy leagues, regardless of the matchup. It sounds like Webb has gotten into Marshall's head a little bit, but you can still expect a solid stat line from the All-Pro receiver.
Wed, 13 Nov 2013 20:44:05 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers CB Ike Taylor is likely to draw the task of trying to stop or limit WR Calvin Johnson in Week 11. He has played well against some of the league's premier receivers, and limited Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green to a season-low 41 yards in their matchup in Week 2. Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall was also limited to just 52 yards, his second-lowest yardage total of the year, in Week 3 while working against Taylor.
Fantasy Tip: Regardless of what Taylor has done in previous games against other receivers, you never, ever sit Johnson in fantasy leagues unless he is hurt or one a bye. Period.
Mon, 04 Nov 2013 18:48:38 -0800
Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (lower body) suffered an apparent lower body injury in the third quarter of the Week 9 game against the Green Bay Packers Monday, Nov. 4.

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 20:48:25 -0700
Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall said he believes QB Jay Cutler (groin) has a chance to play Week 9 because he is working hard in his rehab. "I'm expecting him to be on the field against Green Bay," Marshall said. "I'm not ruling out Green Bay. I heard [head coach Marc Trestman] talking about doctors, their diagnoses and talking all that big talk. But we need to get Jay out there for Green Bay."
Fantasy Tip: There does not appear to be any indication that Cutler will be able to play this week. He likely will need another week or two before he can return to the starting lineup.
Thu, 24 Oct 2013 15:34:09 -0700
Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is tied with Denver Broncos WR Eric Decker for the most receiving yards in the league in the last five weeks, with 561. Jeffery leads his team in yards over WR Brandon Marshall (540).
Fantasy Tip: Jeffery has been one of the nice suprises for fantasy owners this year, but his value may have already reached its peak now that Jay Cutler (groin) is out. Jeffery is unlikely to be as productive with Josh McCown running the offense.

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 10:19:37 -0700
The Chicago Bears are awaiting the MRI results on Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (groin) Monday, Oct. 21, and they are bracing themselves for bad news. Cutler could be out for most of the remaining 10 weeks of the season if it's a serious groin injury. QB Josh McCown would take over for Cutler if he has to miss any time. The Bears would likely re-sign QB Jordan Palmer to back up McCown.
Fantasy Tip: If you own Cutler, starting making plans to add another quarterback. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, as well as Martellus Bennett, will likely suffer if Cutler misses most of the rest of the year.
Mon, 21 Oct 2013 10:00:56 -0700
Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (wrist) injured his wrist in Week 7 during a helmet-to-helmet collision with Washington Redskins FS Brandon Meriweather.
Fantasy Tip: Check back for an update on the extent of Marshall's injury. Jay Cutler (groin) was also injured, and his ailment may be much more serious. Marshall's value will drop Josh McCown is forced into a starting role.

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 09:53:31 -0700
Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall caught just four passes for 30 yards in the team's Week 5 loss to the New Orleans Saints, and QB Jay Cutler targeted him only five times. The Saints double covered Marshall for the majority of the game. "They weren't going to let him have a good day," Cutler said of New Orleans' defense. "They decided, 'Hey, it's not going to happen.' They were going to take him out of the ball game. He still made some plays for us. He might be frustrated, but we just have to keep getting better and better, and he understands that."
Marshall voiced some frustration over his role as a decoy, but head coach Marc Trestman said: "I want to get Brandon the ball. We want to get Brandon the ball. There were a couple of shots early. Jay looked back and he was open a couple of times, then protection got in his face and he was forced to move, which was disappointing. That starts with me. I've got to do a better job of getting him involved."
Fantasy Tip: Opposing defenses are starting to take Marshall out of the game with double teams, freeing up more looks for Alshon Jeffery and Matt Forte. Marshall won't be held down forever, but there will be more frustrating games like this in the future.
