Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall played Sunday night in the stunning 28-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers despite being injured all week and not practicing. Marshall ended up with 5 catches for 48 yards and 3 touchdowns. (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: Brandon Marshall proved why he is still one of the best receivers in the game. Reports all last week were he was questionable to play due to an ankle injury. Well, he showed no signs of injury. He remains a top 5 WR in the league and should be played in all formats.

If you have Brandon Marshall or Alshon Jeffery, it doesn't look like they will play. Considering the 5:30 start time, look elsewhere for a safer option. (Source: Eric Karabell on Twitter
Fantasy Impact: With the late game, it's tough to roll the dice with Brandon Marshall. Santonio Holmes should be on your radar if you're a Marshall/Jeffery owner. If you have a free roster spot, picking up Holmes would be a solid safety net if both Marshall and Alshon Jeffery sit.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall did not practice for a third straight day; he only jogged lightly on his sprained right ankle during team's morning walk-through. (Source: Chicago Tribune
Fantasy Impact: This news is not positive. Marshall is listed as questionable. I would guess he does play Sunday night, but he will not be 100%, if even 90%. Jay Cutler will target him heavily, so Marshall warrants San Francisco's best defenders. If this game gets out of hand quickly, which it very well might, I could see the Bears playing it safe with their Pro Bowl receiver and pulling him. Stay tuned for any updates.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall did not practice again on Thursday. He said in his press conference that he plans to test his ankle on Friday. He also said he plans on being out there Sunday night, but he does not have ultimate say. (Source: ESPN Chicago
Fantasy Impact: Another missed practice for Brandon Marshall causes some concern that his ankle injury is worse than imagined. It is good that he plans on playing on Sunday. If he does play, he will be targeted heavily, thus should be started. Even fellow receiver Alshon Jeffery hasn't practice yet this week, so if they both don't play, definitely look elsewhere for options.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall did not practice on Wednesday. He did injure his ankle this past Sunday, but was able to finish the game. (Source: Chicago Football
Fantasy Impact: Marshall has stated he will be ready to play Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, as such I expect him to play. It would be a shock if he does not play.

Brandon Marshall had a productive day in the Chicago Bears' season opening game against the Buffalo Bills. Marshall finished with 12 targets, 8 receptions, 71 yards, and 1 touchdown despite the Bears losing to the Bills 23-20 in overtime. (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: Brandon Marshall produced well and remains an elite wide receiver. Marshall did limp off the field on two different occasions. He had his ankle taped up two different times but did quickly come back and finish the game. Injury doesn't seem serious. Teammate Alshon Jeffery left game with a hamstring injury and will be re-examined Monday. If Jeffery is to miss time, Marshall should see more targets but also more double coverage.

On the Bears' first play from scrimmage, Jay Cutler looked at Brandon Marshall for a 5 yard pass. That trend continued throughout at the night, as Marshall looked at 7 footballs thrown his way. Marshall ended the night with 4 catches for 45 yards.
Fantasy Impact: With 7 targets in the first half, Marshall continues to look like a top 10 wide out in PPR formats. Alshon Jeffrey ended the night with 8 targets, but Marshall owners should note that Cutler looked his way first. Needless to say, there will be plenty of targets to go around this season for the top two passing options in Chicago.

Brandon Marshall has joined the cast of 'Inside the NFL' as a commentator. The show tapes on Tuesdays, which is typically on off day for most teams, so it won't affect his weekly preparation. (Source: ProFootballTalk
Fantasy Impact: This new adventure for Marshall shouldn't have any affect on his play. You can count on the Bears to pull the plug if it becomes a distraction. Marshall is currently being drafted as the 5th overall WR taken. Expect the new TV personality to still reel in around 100 passes and score 10+ touchdowns and easily retain his lofty draft value.

Brandon Marshall and Jay Cutler look to be at it again this year. In the first preseason game against the Eagles, Cutler went 9/13 with 5 of those receptions going to Marshall (6 targets total).
Fantasy Impact: There is no doubt that Brandon Marshall should be a WR1 in any fantasy league this year. He is a top three WR talent in an offense that likes to throw the ball and has a QB who likes to throw it his way. Alshon Jeffrey had two targets in the first game; both catches but one came back due to a penalty. Look for Marshall to be the better fantasy option with Alshon as a low end WR1.

This post was originally featured on Rotoback. Is Alshon Jeffery Being Undervalued? Someone on Rotoballer’s chat was asking some questions about whether to take Alshon Jefferey or some other players: Keenan Allen, Randall Cobb, Victor Cruz and the like. There was a huge overwhelming majority that felt like Alshon was worth less than the […]
