After the Bears' Week 5 loss to the Saints, Brandon Marshall brought up his concerns about his usage in the passing game. With that in mind, he and Jay Cutler hooked up for nine receptions, 87 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6 against the Giants.
Marshall was targeted a team-high 11 times. Alshon Jeffery took a backseat this week, only catching one pass on Thursday night.
Fantasy impact: Hopefully you bought low on Marshall, if that was possible. The veteran wideout only finished with 30 yards last week, but he continues to find the end zone, helping fantasy owners forget about his yardage total.
The Bears take on a terrible secondary next week with the Redskins visiting Chicago. Expect Marshall to continue to find the end zone. A one-touchdown prediction for him may be on the low side.
