Brandon Marshall WR CHI 8 Months

Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 74 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's Week 17 loss to the Packers.

Marshall's score was a diving, five-yard grab at the back of the end zone in the fourth quarter, but he also committed a drop on Chicago's futile final drive. Managing to co-exist with co-No. 1 receiver Alshon Jeffery, Marshall finishes his second year in Chicago with 100 catches for 1,295 yards and 12 touchdowns. The grabs and yards are both down on his 2012 numbers, but Marshall is clearly still in his prime. Going on 30, Marshall has caught 100 passes in five of his eight NFL seasons. He'll remain a WR1 for 2014.

Brandon Marshall is not practicing Wednesday.

It's likely just a rest day after Marshall caught six passes for 95 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Cleveland. He's in no danger of missing Week 16 and will be a WR1 in a plus matchup against the Eagles.

Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 100 yards in Chicago's Week 14 win over the Cowboys on Monday night.

Marshall was targeted eight times on the night. Those two passes that weren't completed were end-zone targets. On a night where Josh McCown threw four touchdowns, it's a shame Marshall didn't secure one. Earl Bennett and Michael Bush scored two of them. Marshall worked the middle of the field with ease on deep ins and post patterns. He'll be on the WR1 map once again next week against the Browns. With Alshon Jeffery performing at an elite level, it's unclear which receiver Joe Haden will be tasked to shadow. Maybe he'll just play sides.
