Fantasy Analysis | 1414108083
Alshon Jeffery a better bet than Brandon Marshall against Pats
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Bears love to air it out but didn't do such a good job of it Week 7 against Miami, with quarterback Jay Cutler throwing for just 190 yards and a touchdown. Unfortunately, the outlook isn't much better for Week 8 at New England.

The Patriots rank first against the pass, allowing 208.0 yards per game. Even worse for Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, they've given up the second-fewest Fantasy points per game to wide receivers.

Darrelle Revis is, of course, a big reason for that. The lockdown cornerback isn't quite as reliable as he used to be, but he's still capable of taking a top target out of the game, as he did with the Bills' Sammy Watkins a couple weeks ago. Against the Bears, that would probably be Marshall.

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard aren't deterred, ranking both Marshall and Jeffery among their top 12 wide receivers for this week (with Marshall higher), and in traditional Fantasy leagues, you could certainly make the argument that they're too good to risk sitting. But in one-week leagues like FanDuel where you have your choice of every player, they're risky, Marshall especially. It's not like he has been so reliable this year anyway.

Bears QB Jay Cutler has no issues with Marshall's locker-room rant
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said he was not upset with wide receiver Brandon Marshall's postgame rant in the locker room following Sunday's loss against the Dolphins.

"He’s an emotional guy," Cutler said, per The Chicago Tribune. "Whenever he gets frustrated, he’s going to get emotional most of the time, and he’s going to speak from the heart, and he’s going to make sure everyone else around him hears him. It wasn’t anything that caught us off guard or was off-putting. It was frustration coming out and him just letting us know that it’s important to him."

Cutler added he doesn't believe Marshall crossed a line and said Marshall's actions were not directed at him.

"He didn’t come near me," Cutler said. "He didn’t say my name. I don’t think he attacked anybody personally (with) what he was saying."

Bears K Robbie Gould downplays Brandon Marshall 's rant
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Bears kicker Robbie Gould has downplayed his teammate Brandon Marshall 's dramatic postgame rant in a radio appearance on WSCR 670-AM on Monday, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"I wouldn't give this any more attention than it obviously needs," Gould said. "Everyone's trying to make this a story out of something that really wasn't that big of a deal. … Obviously everyone's frustrated. Everyone wants to win. Our fans want to win. Coaches want to win. The players want to win. And everyone's obviously frustrated."

After losing to his former team on Sunday, the star wideout was heard screaming at his teammates -- including Gould -- through the locker room doors before venting to the media. The Bears have lost their first three games at home this season, matching their home loss total from each of the previous five seasons.

They'll look to get back on track Week 8 at New England.

Bears WR Brandon Marshall held under 50 yards vs. former team
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall was held under 50 receiving yards in a disappointing loss to his former team on Sunday. Following the game, Marshall showed his frustration after the game in a press conference, per ESPN.

"We lost, there should be a lot of frustration," Marshall said. "You should hear frustration. We're 3-4. Yeah, this means everything to a lot of guys in this locker room. This means a lot."

Marshall was targeted 10 times and finished with only six catches for 48 in a 27-14 Week 7 loss to Miami. He has 31 catches for 349 yards and five touchdowns this season. He'll look to turn things around Week 8 at New England.

Quiet game not a concern for Bears' receivers
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins cornerbacks don't stand particularly tall, so smart money was on the Bears' big wideouts going off for big games. So, why were Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall so silent in Week 7?

Quarterback Jay Cutler struggled with his accuracy Sunday, which helps explain the issues Marshall and Jeffery had. When throwing to tight ends or running backs, Cutler completed 76.5 percent of his passes, but he connected on just 8 of 17 to Marshall or Jeffery. The Dolphins got pressure on Cutler well, so the Bears' receivers were unable to get open downfield; they had just 57 combined yard son their eight receptions.

Marshall and Jefferey both had 100-plus yards last week, so this is probably just a bump in the road. Marshall was unhappy with the team's offensive execution after the game, so you can bet he will work hard to get on the same page with Cutler moving forward. Don't consider benching either player for Week 8 against the Patriots next Sunday.
