Brandon Marshall’s Instant Fantasy Reaction After Week 6 Performance vs. Giants

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall was at it again on Thursday Night Football, easily reinforcing the fact that owners who took a risk on him early in fantasy drafts made a great decision. 

This time, the victim was the New York Giants, a winless team with a defense that had surrendered 269 passing yards per game going into the matchup. 

Marshall was a must-start receiver as usual, and he instantly rewarded owners with five receptions for 52 yards and two touchdowns by the halfway point of the second quarter.

Despite second-year receiver Alshon Jeffery going off last week against New Orleans for 10 receptions, 218 yards and a touchdown, Marshall remains the best option at receiver on the team a year removed from his 118 receptions, 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2012.

While he was fortunate enough to prey on a weak New York secondary in Week 6, Marshall continues to be a top-5 fantasy option at the position second only to the likes of A.J. Green and Calvin Johnson.

Things get even better from a fake football perspective in Week 7 for Marshall as Chicago has a date with Washington, a team that touts the NFL‘s worst overall defense. After that, Marshall faces three teams with the 20th-ranked pass defense or worse in five games.

Owners lucky enough to own Marshall should sit tight and lock him into the lineup. Owners without would need to surrender too much to acquire his services.
