Bears WR Brandon Marshall set franchise records with 118 receptions for 1,508 yards last season and the Bears scored 375 points, 22 more than they had the year before, when Johnny Knox led all wide receivers with 37 receptions.

To be a dynamic offense, the Bears have to have multiple threats on a weekly basis. Alshon Jeffery, who missed time in the spring with a hamstring injury, has to be more durable and advance in his second season.

With TE Martellus Bennett and RB Matt Forte also in the mix, it's probably going to be difficult for Marshall to match his production from a year ago. That's not a bad thing.


Fantasy Impact:
We rank Marshall fourth among our WRs with an ADP of the second round. We do predict a bit of a drop from last year in overall numbers, but the hope is new head coach Marc Trestman doesn't mess with the chemistry too much. Also be aware Marshall had minor surgery to clean up his hip and missed a great part of on-field work in minicamps - as a precautionary measure.
