by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Marshall tied for the team lead with eight targets, hauling in five passes for 48 yards. On his first score right before halftime, Marshall snared a 17-yarder with one hand at the top of his jump. Marshall added 5- and 3-yard touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

'Major questions' on Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) A source said Bears wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are "75 percent" sure not to play Sunday night at San Francisco, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. This comes hours after Bears Radio Network sideline reporter Zach Zaidman told Eye on Fantasy Football on CBS Sports Radio Saturday night that both were legitimate game-time decisions. 

Per Zaidman, both tried testing their injuries this week -- Marshall with an ankle, Jeffery with a mild hamstring strain. Both barely practiced and are expected to test themselves again before kickoff on Sunday night.

Santonio Holmes, who was forced into extensive playing time last week according to Zaidman, would take over for one of them if one can't play.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Brandon Marshall hauls in touchdown in Week 1 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall recorded eight catches for 71 yards and scored a touchdown in his team's 23-20 overtime loss to the Bills in Week 1.

Marshall lost a fumble after a second-quarter reception, and the Bills' subsequent field goal put the Bears behind by three. He made up for it in the third quarter, snagging an 11-yard touchdown on a play where defensive pass interference was also called. He did have to deal with an ankle injury throughout the second half, leaving the game twice to have his ankle re-taped. Marshall may be limited in practice this week if the ankle issue continues to linger. The Bears will head to San Francisco Sunday.


Brandon Marshall likely to continue TD streak in Week 1


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall put a cap on his 2013 season by scoring touchdowns in each of his last three games. On Sunday against the Bills, he's primed to extend that TD streak to four games.

Marshall is less of a big play threat than fellow starter Alshon Jeffery, but he does plenty of damage in his own right. Half of his 12 touchdowns last season were from within six yards of the end zone. Nine of his touchdowns came on passes from starter Jay Cutler. If the Bears can get to the red zone repeatedly Sunday -- and they can -- Cutler should hook up with Marshall for at least one score.

Marshall had double-digit targets 11 times last season, failing to reach eight targets only once all season. The space should be there over the middle against a depleted Buffalo linebacker corps and a secondary without Jairus Byrd. Marshall snagged half of his 100 receptions in the middle of the field within 20 yards of the line of scrimmage, per Pro Football Focus. Look for him to exploit that same part of the field Sunday en route to a big Fantasy day.


Bears tweak scheme to take advantage of Brandon Marshall


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Bears receiver Brandon Marshall has a lot going for him entering the season, reports ESPN.com.

Marshall has posted seven straight 1,000-yard seasons. Last year he caught 100 passes for 1,295 yards and 12 touchdowns.


Brandon Marshall: Move to Bears 'career saving'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/8/2014) Bears receiver Brandon Marshall said his move from Miami to Chicago in 2012 was career saving, reports ESPN.

"What I meant by that was when you look at the career side, it's like to be honest, I think I played with five or six different quarterbacks," Marshall said. "You see how my production dropped and people were looking at me like, 'He used to be a top-five receiver. It's him. He's dropping all these balls. He's the issue. He's the problem.' Those people in Miami, they wanted my head for a year or two. But then I come to Chicago and you see me continue to produce at a high level. I had Jay Cutler. I was in a system I was familiar with. So it was career saving."

Marshall also said he has grown up and changed based on his previous off-field woes. 

"I found that interesting that there is a thought about me reverting back," Marshall said. "But I always tell people that’s just part of the journey, especially for a young man given so much freedom, so much fame, so much fortune. That’s part of the journey, to make mistakes. But the problem is you make your mistakes in the public's eye. People look at me like, 'Is this an act?' ... But I’m actually growing, every single day. This is the new me. This is who I am. So there isn't any reverting back. But I do make mistakes. I'm pretty much still in the same exact situation. I just look at life differently and my approach is different. There's some things out there I still need to work on."

Brandon Marshall healthy, ready for contract year


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/15/2014) Bears receiver Brandon Marshall is expecting a big year in 2014. He's healthy this offseason and looking forward to his contract year.

Last year, Marshall dealt with minor hip surgery in the offseason, but he said thus far he's in great shape and ready to go.

"The offseason is amazing," Marshall said in an interview with CBSSports.com. "It seems like every other year I get a healthy one. Last year I had surgery and really couldn't train. This one, it's a successful one so far because I'm healthy. Next year should be a big year for me. I'm looking forward to it being my best year ever."

Marshall, 30, is coming off a solid year in his first campain for new coach Marc Trestman. He had 100 catches for 1,295 yards and a career-high 12 touchdowns.

This is a contract year for Marshall, who is scheduled to make $9.1 million in 2014. He told a Chicago radio station in March he's going to force the Bears "to sign me after next year," and he's not worried about getting paid.

"Everybody wants to get a new check," Marshall said. "That will happen when it happens. ... If you go out and play then everything else is slotted. You have to perform. You have to keep the product on the field good."


Brandon Marshall taking mature approach to contract


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Bears receiver Brandon Marshall, who's entering the final year of his contract, isn't worried about getting an extension. The chances of a new contract diminished with Chicago's signing of Jared Allen.

"If it happens, it happens, if it doesn't, I'm glad to be a Bear for another year and I'm going to force them to sign me after next year," Marshall said on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN Chicago 1000, per ESPN.com. "One way or another, they're going to get the deal done. 

"But if it comes down to next year, I'll be picketing outside of Halas Hall for a new deal, a new contract, because I'm not going anyplace."

Marshall, 30, will make $9.1 million this year. He says he's not looking for Calvin Johnson-type of money.

"I'm not going anywhere, man," Marshall said. "The guys that are out there now like Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald, they're making $16 million, $15 million a year, and I'm not looking for anything like that. A lot of that money goes to the quarterback position and rightfully so.

"For me, we do want to sign guys like Jared Allen and Lamarr Houston and we got Martellus [Bennett] last year and have Matt Forte. I do want to be in a good position, but at the same time I definitely am not trying to be in the $15 million range. I get a year to deal with that, and right now I'm focusing on how to be a better teammate. How can I grow as a receiver, as a man, as a leader on this team and also in the community. How can our foundation do bigger things? That stuff is going to take care of itself. We have all year to figure that out and I believe we'll get it done before the end of the season and I'm going to be happy when we do."


Brandon Marshall: Healthy offseason will pay off in 2014


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2014) Bears receiver Brandon Marshall underwent hip surgery last offseason and said it hurt his preparation for the 2013 season, reports the Chicago Tribune. That won't be an issue this offseason.

“I’m going to have my best year ever next year,” Marshall told the paper. “I’m going to be healthy; I have a healthy offseason, I don’t have to get any surgeries. I didn’t even have a chance to prepare last year; I hit my stride Week 9, Week 10 in the season. Now I get a whole offseason. I really believe it’s going to be my best year ever.”

Marshall also is excited about the return of quarterback Jay Cutler, who signed a seven-year deal last week. Marshall had 100 receptions for 1,295 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2013 catching passes from Cutler and Josh McCown. But he led the league with 15 drops.
