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."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

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.


Brandon Marshall led league in drops


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Bears receiver Brandon Marshall put up big numbers this season, catching 100 balls for 1,295 yards and a career-high 12 touchdowns. But the 29-year-old could have had a monster year had he shown more consistent hands.

Pro Football Focus reports Marshall dropped a league-high 15 passes. Cleveland's Davone Bess dropped 14, New England's Julian Edelman dropped 13, and Tampa Bay's Vincent Jackson dropped 12. Four players tied for fifth with 11 drops.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall came up big with another solid performance as he scored his career-high 12th touchdown of the season during Sunday’s make-or-break game against the Packers in Week 17.

Marshall came down with a twisting 5-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter to extend the lead for Chicago. He caught six of 10 passes thrown his way for 74 yards and a touchdown in a 33-28 defeat, ending Chicago's season.

Marshall notched his fifth 100-catch season and his second in a row. He finished the season with 100 receptions for 1,295 yards and a career-high 12 touchdowns.

Brandon Marshall seeking to break TD mark


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Marshall caught only four passes for 36 yards and a touchdown in a Week 16 loss to Philadelphia. He has scored in back-to-back games for the fourth time this season. He has never scored in three consecutive games.

In a 27-20 Week 9 victory at Green Bay, Marshall seven of the 13 passes thrown his way for 107 yards and a touchdown. He has 94 catches for 1,221 yards this season. The Packers have allowed six touchdowns to wide receivers over the past four games. Opposing wide receivers have scored 23.60 Fantasy points per game in standard league against Green Bay. Consider Marshall a must-start Fantasy option for Week 17.

Brandon Marshall set to explode Week 16


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) Bears receiver Brandon Marshall has everything going for him Week 16. Jay Cutler is back at quarterback -- he targeted Marshall 13 times to Alshon Jeffery's five in his return last week -- and Chicago visits an Eagles team that's helpless in the secondary.

Philly gives up the most Fantasy points to receivers (29.3 per game) and it's not close. Wideouts average 16.4 catches for 213 yards and have caught 19 touchdowns vs. the Eagles, all league highs. 

Marshall has six 100-yard games and has totaled at least 95 yards in five of his last seven outings. He has 10 touchdown grabs, one shy of his career high. He ranks fourth in the NFL with 90 catches, fifth with 144 targets and ninth with 1,185 receiving yards.

Feel fortunate if you're trotting out Marshall in Fantasy's championship week. He's a top-5 play Sunday night.


Brandon Marshall scores in Week 15


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 95 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Browns. 

Marshall now has 95 or more receiving yards in five of his last seven games. The touchdown was his 10th of the season. His 13 targets were the most for the Bears on Sunday, and marked his first double-digit target total since Week 12. 

Marshall was the target on both of Jay Cutler's interceptions -- one coming in the end zone in the first quarter. He now has five touchdowns over his last six games. 

The Bears play the Eagles in Week 16. 


Brandon Marshall looks good for Week 15


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall has four 100-yard games in his last six, along with four touchdowns and four double-digit Fantasy point performances in that span. 

The Browns -- Marshall's Week 15 opponent -- have allowed 11 touchdowns to wide receivers over the last seven games. And those 11 touchdowns have been spread out among 10 players -- which is a good sign for the Bears, who have both Marshall and Alshon Jeffery vying for targets. Additionally, worry about Browns shutdown defensive back Joe Haden has been waning recently, as Julian Edelman, Cecil Shorts, and Antonio Brown have all caught touchdowns with Haden covering them in the last few weeks. 

Marshall is tied for fourth among wide receivers in Fantasy points and is one of seven receivers with nine or more touchdowns. He is an elite option and can be started in most Fantasy formats. 


Brandon Marshall posts sixth 100-yard game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2013) Bears receiver Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 100 yards in the win over Dallas, his sixth 100-yard game this season. The effort put Marshall over 1,000 receiving yards for the seventh straight year.

Marshall started fast, making three catches for 49 yards on the first two drives. He delivered a vicious block on Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee that enabled quarterback Josh McCown to scramble for a first down.

Marshall, who had 78 yards by halftime, was targeted eight times, third most on the team. He was targeted twice unsuccessfully in the end zone. On one of those, corner Brandon Carr covered him tightly and McCown's throw was off the mark. Marshall did haul in a 2-point conversion. 

Marshall will try to break his two-game touchdown drought Sunday in Cleveland.


Brandon Marshall good to go

(12/9/2013) Bears receiver Brandon Marshall, who was probable with a quadriceps injury, is active for Monday night's game vs. Dallas. He practiced fully Friday and Saturday after being limited earlier last week.

Brandon Marshall ready for Dallas

(12/7/2013) Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall (quadricep) was able to practice without issue Friday and Saturday, after being limited earlier in the week. He is officially probable for Week 14 against the Cowboys Monday. 

Brandon Marshall looking to torch Cowboys again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) Bears receiver Brandon Marshall enjoyed facing the Cowboys last year. In a 34-18 win in Dallas, Marshall caught seven passes for 138 yards and a touchdown. Marshall dominated cornerback Brandon Carr in that game and he'll try to do it again Monday night in Chicago.

Marshall remains the Bears' No. 1 receiver despite Alshon Jeffery's Week 13 explosion. In fact, Jeffery's outburst should benefit Marshall.

In the Bears' overtime loss to Minnesota, Jeffery went off for 12 catches, 249 yards and two touchdowns while Marshall was held to four grabs for 45 yards. That could mean less bracket coverage on Marshall. 

Dallas gives up 22.8 Fantasy points per game to opposing receivers, tied for 14th most. The No. 4 Fantasy wideout, Marshall usually comes back strong after lackluster games. Consider him a top-5 play Week 14.


Rookie cornerback shuts down Brandon Marshall


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) A Bears' wide receiver posted a franchise-record 249 yards Week 13 at Minnesota. Sadly, that wide receiver was not Brandon Marshall.

Marshall finished with just four catches for 45 yards, as teammate Alshon Jeffery went off for 12 catches for 249 yards and two touchdowns.Marshall had trouble getting open because of Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes.

Marshall was targeted nine times, which trailed only Jeffery's 15 targets. However, Rhodes prevented him from making a big play, which included a 19-yard touchdown in the first half that was batted away by the rookie cornerback.

Marshall has finished with less than five catches and 40 yards in two of his last three games. Sunday was just the third time in his last eight games he failed to score a touchdown. The Bears are back in action Week 14 vs. Dallas.


Quadriceps injury won't keep Brandon Marshall sidelined


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall (quadriceps) has been cleared to play Week 13 at Minnesota. Marshall, who was listed as probable, practiced in full Friday after he was limited Thursday.
