Schefter: Bears to trade WR Brandon Marshall to the Jets, pending physical

Friday, March 6, 2015, 1:17pm

Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

Bears have agreed to trade WR Brandon Marshall to the Jets pending a physical, per league source.

Fantasy Impact:

Injuries made it a frustrating year for Marshall owners. His biggest game (5-48-3) came on Sunday night in Week 2 when it looked like he wasn't going to play against the 49ers. Then, when everyone had him back in the lineup for Week 3, he posted one catch for six yards against the Jets. He finished as the #34 PPR receiver, but had the #21 PPG. If fully healthy, he'll be a solid starter, though it's a quarterback downgrade from Jay Cutler to Geno Smith (or whomever ends up starting for the Jets). New OC Chan Gailey did throw the ball 56.6% of the time in his three seasons running the Bills, so the Jets figure to pass it much more than they have in the last few seasons. Marshall's arrival could have a negative impact on Eric Decker's targets, but given the team's relative lack of playmakers and Gailey's positive impact on the pass offense, Decker's value should hold steady.

Scouting Report

Jay Cutler - Week 17 vs. Minnesota

Well this is awkward. The Chicago Bears benched Jay Cutler last week in favor of Jimmy Clausen. Well, as fate would have it Clausen suffered a concussion and has been ruled out for Week 17. Welcome, back Jay!

Cutler hadn't been playing well in terms of actual football, but he wasn't a terrible fantasy option. He had six games with at least 280 yards passing and had multiple touchdowns in all but four games.

This week he faces a Minnesota defense he played well against in Week 11. In that game he completed 72 percent of his passes for 330 yards and three touchdowns. Typically the Vikings' defense is a little tougher than that.

The Bears clearly don't have a lot of confidence in Cutler and this week they aren't playing for anything. Cutler should be viewed as a QB2.
