|With Marshallís trade to the Bears in the offseason allowing him to be reunited with quarterback Jay Cutler, fantasy enthusiasts began envisioning Marshall putting together another 100-reception season like he did during 2007-2009. Thatís wishful thinking, folks. While Marshall and Cutler may make some sweet music this year in Chicago, Marshall isnít about to see the 169 targets in 2012. That is how many he averaged during his heyday with Cutler in Denver. Letís just say that the Bears have never targeted any receiver that much. While 100 receptions isnít likely on order, look for Marshall to continue his string of 1,000 receiving yard seasons, which currently stands at five. Toss in another 6-8 touchdowns and you have yourself a solid WR2 with little risk. Thatís right, folks. When a guy has topped 1,000 yards for five consecutive seasons and only missed four games over that span, you pretty much have to consider him risk free.
| Brandon Marshall placed on IR -- Mon Dec 8 3:55 pm --|
WR released from hospital Monday; lung, rib injuries
|Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall, who was discharged from Northwestern Memorial Hospital on Monday, has been placed on the reserve/injured list. Marshall spent three days in the hospital receiving treatment for a collapsed lung he suffered following a 15-yard reception in the second quarter of the Bears' 41-28 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night. Marshall also fractured two ribs on the play when Cowboys S Brandon Church kneed the receiver in the back. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: With Monday's announcement that Marshall will go on IR, the Bears will turn to Marquess Wilson opposite Alshon Jeffery. Although he didn't produce much after Marshall left the game last Thursday, Wilson is a unique blend of size (6-4) and speed (4.5) that gives the Bears a deep threat it hasn't had with Jeffery hurt for most of the season. He needs to be added in all leagues this week and should already be on all rosters in dynasty formats.
| Marshall likely out rest of the season -- Fri Dec 5 7:30 pm --|
Two fractured ribs and lung injury
|Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall will not play again this season after suffering two fractured ribs and a lung injury during the team's 41-28 loss Thursday night to the Dallas Cowboys, two sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Marshall remained hospitalized Friday receiving treatment.
FF Today's Take: Marshall has already been ruled out for Week 15 and it appears his season is over. Look for Marquess Wilson to move into Marshall's spot on the outside with Josh Morgan filling the slot receiver's role.
| Brandon Marshall: "I feel more explosive" -- Fri Oct 3 1:55 pm --|
Practiced in full this week
|Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall believes his sprained right ankle has healed enough for him to be his typical threatening self against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday..
Marshall fully participated in all three practices this week, the first time he has done so since prior to the season-opener in which he was injured.
FF Today's Take: Marshall aggravated his ankle injury in Week 3 then posted two catches for 19 yards in Week 4. Marshall should be a WR1 this week against the Panthers.
| Brandon Marshall practices in full -- Wed Oct 1 1:52 pm --|
LB Lance Briggs sits with sore knee
|Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall, defensive linemen Jared Allen and Jeremiah Ratliff, offensive linemen Roberto Garza and Matt Slauson and cornerback Sherrick McManis returned to practice Wednesday. Marshall practiced in full; the others players were limited. Linebacker Lance Briggs sat out to rest a sore knee. (Chicago Tribune)|
FF Today's Take: Brandon Marshall has salvaged his fantasy worth by being used primarily as a red zone threat while nursing a sore ankle. A full week of practice without any setbacks should see Jay Cutler's favorite target become much more involved in the passing game this weekend against Carolina.
| Brandon Marshall a gametime decision -- Fri Sep 26 1:45 pm --|
Questionable with ankle injury
|The Bears will have another game-time decision to make about wide receiver Brandon Marshall. Marshall was sidelined at practice on Friday because of the ankle injury that has troubled him for a few weeks now. (ProFootballTalk)|
FF Today's Take: Marshall is listed as questionable and didn't practice all week. The star receiver was held to one catch and six yards against the Jets in Week 3 and missed a portion of the second half after aggravating the injury. Check the inactive list on Sunday before setting Marshall in your lineup.
