Brandon Marshall (foot) did not practice on Wednesday. He is fully expected to play against the Saints on Sunday.
It's not really much of a concern and it's good news he's on the injury report for a foot injury and not the troublesome hip that cost him some time in training camp. He's been a little quiet this year, ranking 12th in targets and 10th in yards to go with his two scores.
This week, he could get some good eatin' against the Saints. There should be points in bunches in Chicago and the Saints don't have anyone that can cover a guy like Marshall. Also, Alshon Jeffery stepping up makes teams less inclined to double Marshall.
Fantasy impact: Obviously Marshall is going to be in your lineup. He is one of the safest bets to score a receiving TD and could easily clear 100 yards and/or 10 receptions. It's worth noting that Jeffery could also have a big game in the likely shootout.
