2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Back in Denver with Jay Cutler, Marshall had 102 receptions in 2007 and 104 in 2008


(+) Has put up 1,000 yards in each of the last five seasons


(+) Posted 1,214 yards with sub-par QBs Chad Henne and Matt Moore running the show last season


(+) He's a physical specimen and it shows as his YAC (yards-after-catch) is pretty insane


(+) With the ball in his hands, he's a monster… it looks like he wants to hurt the tackler


(+) Posted 109 yards against Darrell Revis in NY Jets win last year – quite a feat for sure


(+) Had five 100-yard games in 2011 and another one with 98 yards


(–) Always a league leader in Dropped Passes – he had 14 last year, which gave him the 13th-highest Drop Rate in the league last season and the highest among the Top-35 fantasy receivers


(–) Seems to be allergic to touchdowns… We've watched him walk out of bounds on a sure-fire 50-yard TD. SUPER frustrating


(–) Basically, he drops TD-passes like a porn star takes Z-Packs


(–) He’s a self-admitted total head case…though the key to recovery is first admitting it, right?


(–) If his wife - Micah Nogami Marshall - comes with him to Chicago, then buyers beware…it’s entirely possible he gets stabbed again


(–) Coming to Chicago is not exactly an NFL wide receiver’s dream destination. The Bears last WR with a 1,000 yards was Marty Booker in 2002

2009 Review

brandon marshall miami dolphins header


For as much of a headache this kid is off the field, he sure is a nice dose of Advil for fantasy owners on it.  It took him a little while to get used to both his new QB Kyle Orton and new head coach Josh McDaniels’ offensive system, but once it clicked, Marshall was the receiving barbarian fantasy footballers had come to know and love over the past couple of years.  Marshall caught 100+ passes for the third straight year, and like the year before, he did it in just 15 games (13 starts).  Even though his yardage went down a touch, he improved on his aptitude for touchdowns enough to offset the slide.  After all the nerves he set off before the season started, he sure as hell ended up being worth the risk taken for those who had the stones enough to call his name out on draft day.

2010 Fantasy Outlook







As long as “Baby TO” keeps his ass out of the doghouse, halfway house, or Big House, it doesn’t matter who’s throwing him the ball, the sky’s the limit for this kid.  He should be able to hit 100+ receptions again as soon as Chad Henne and Tony Sparano understand his talent, and now that he has a nose for the endzone, Top-5 fantasy WR numbers are well within his reach.  Is it still going to be a gamble to grab him as your #1 wide receiver?  Absolutely, and it likely will be for the duration of his career.  But sometimes the chances you take are same moves that put you over the top in your league.


~ The Dolphins and their Wildcat offense might not be the best system for him to play in


~ How long will it take him to learn the new system?  If it’s as long as it took him in 2009 with the Broncos, he’ll start off slow once again


~ New issues, whether they be off-the-field or on-the-field, will surely come into play at some point


~ His top-5 WR talent usually wins out in the end

Contract

In April of 2010, Marshall finally signed the deal he always wanted to the tune of five-years, $47.3 million.  The contract included $12.5 million guaranteed, a $5.5 million signing bonus, and $6 million of Brandon’s 2012 salary… unless he incurs a league suspension of any kind during the first three years of the deal.  Smart move by the Dolphins, nice sign by the eccentric wide receiver.  Here are the details:


2010 – $4 million


2011 - $6.5 million (+ $3 million roster bonus due on 4/2/11)


2012 - $9 million


2013 – $9.1 million

Injury Report

Green

Marshall has had hip surgery each of the past two offseasons on each side of his body. Both procedures were said to be minor, and since he looks just fine in camp, we tend to believe it

Should of Rested

Brandon Marshall has stated that he feels his week one injury should have kept him out of the lineup for four weeks, but was able to convince Bears officials that he could play. “I can’t just sit on the sideline and was the guys have fun and battle together,” he said. “It’s just not in my blood.” This would attest to his poor performances over the last three weeks, as he has only caught six receptions in three games since his three touchdowns against the 49ers. “So last week was the first week where we really had a chance to get me involved,” Marshall said. “The first two weeks, the doctors ruled me out. they said I wasn’t going to play and I went to them and said, ‘Just make it a game-time decision’
“I thought that with some adrenaline I’d be able to go. I was able to help the team out, pull some coverage and get Martellus (Bennett) and Alshon (Jeffery) 1-on-1 matchups. Get Matt Forte some seven-man boxes.”

Marc Trestman believes that Marshall is back at 100% and has done everything possible to get there “All I can tell you, from my standpoint with Brandon, is he did everything he could to get ready and get himself back,” Trestman said. “And the last 10 days or two weeks of practice, he looks to be at full strength.”

Pyro's take: A healthy Brandon Marshall means a healthy dose of stats for your fantasy ball-team. Its great to see the positive strides that Marshall has made, and maybe this could be passed down to players like Mike Wallace.

Continue to start Brandon Marshall as your number one receiver, and it doesn't matter who he plays.

Will play

Brandon Marshall is going to play and so is Alshon Jeffery. This is coming to a surprise as the Bears contracted two wide receivers, and this morning it was a 75% chance they would both be out.

Pyro's take: Both should be started.

75% doubtful

Reporter Dave Richard of CBS sports is stating that Brandon Marshall is 75% sure NOT going to play.

Pyro's take: Jay Cutler going against the 49ers defense without his binky? Not a good sign, at this point keep Cutler and Marshall on the bench unless things change.

Marshall (Questionable: Ankle) a dicey call this weekend

The only physical activity Marshall went through at practice this week was a light jog before the rest of the team got down to business on Friday. It's looking like The Beast will be a true "Game-Time Decision" this Sunday night.

Pyro's take: This is going to be a super-tough situation for fantasy owners to handle here in Week 2, as the Bears don't play until Sunday night in San Francisco. It'll obviously be hard to bench your (presumably) WR1, but there's certainly a strong case to do so here. First of all, if Brandon DOES play, it will be at less than 100 percent. Second, with Chicago also going into this game without two of their starting offensive linemen, you can bet the 49ers will be looking to put some heavy heat on Jay Cutler throughout the game. If so, I'm guessing they'd also put some press-coverage on Marshall because Cutler would likely be forced to get rid of the ball quickly. If all this plays out the way I believe it will, Brandon could still come down with a good amount of catches and end up a nice PPR play, but it's unlikely he'd be able to turn them into much yardage. Either way, fantasy owners need to be following this situation very closely all the way up to the final second before lineups need to be put in.

ready to go

Brandon Marshall is set and ready to face the tough defense of the San Francisco 49ers. Marshall suffered an ankle injury and it hampered his play in the second half loss to the Bills. He mentioned on his weekly show "Inside the NFL" on Showtime. He is also looking forward to making up for the fumble he lost right before halftime that led to a 50 yard field goal.

Pyro's take: A pumped up Brandon Marshall means more pumped up points for your fantasy team. Keep him in your starting line-up in this very important match-up for the Bears. They do not to fall behind 0-2 in the standings as only 12% of the teams make the playoffs after losing the first two weeks of the season.

Marshall signs extentsion with the Bears

Marshall is under contract for $9.3 million for the 2014 season — $9.1 million in base salary and a $200,000 workout bonus. So that positions him to earn $39.3 million from the Bears over the next four seasons.

Neither Marshall nor general manager Phil Emery commented after Marshall signed. But earlier Monday, Emery indicated how he values Marshall's initiative in hosting teammates for workouts and fellowship in South Florida earlier this offseason.

"He is healthy," Emery said on WSCR-AM 670. "He feels great. We have a really good relationship. He gets along very well with his teammates. Obviously, the things he did during the offseason to show leadership and to help pull the team together, they mean a lot; they mean a lot to our other players. It just shows the quality of person he is."

In two seasons since joining the Bears via trade in 2012, Marshall has 218 receptions, 2,803 receiving yards and 23 touchdowns.

Pyro's take: The Bears are locking down all of their offensive weapons, and are doing so to hold their Super Bowl window open for the next three seasons. Marshall is a key to the Bears offense, and his production since becoming a Bear has been fantastic.

Now with a contract in hand, Marshall and the Bears offense can focus on delving deeper into Marc Trestman's offense, and confounding defenses even more in 2014. A great move by Marshall and the Bears.

Brandon Marsahll talks about lack of involement

Alshon Jeffery set a franchise record in Sunday's loss to the Saints with 218 receiving yards.

Brandon Marshall's 30 yards on four catches marked his third-worst yardage output as a Bear.

Marshall said his lack of involvement Sunday left him to focus on controlling his negative body language, a test he felt he passed.

"If you beat yourself up too much or get too down or too frustrated at the play-calling or the coverage, the ball comes your way and you drop it," Marshall said. "I'm proud of myself today for that."

As the Saints aimed their coverages at Marshall, that meant heightened opportunity for Jeffery, who caught 10 of the 13 passes thrown his way and delivered the Bears' five longest plays.

Pyro's take: This is going to be a continuing story for Marshall, who is going to see bracket coverage from most of the defenses he faces. Conversely, Jeffery should continue to see one-on-one coverages, as defenses will force the second year Gamecock to be the one to beat them.

Marshall is still going to have his games, and you better believe that Jay Cutler wants to keep Brandon in the right frame of mind, which is a full-time job. Marshall is still the best receiver on the Bears and watch out for him making a statement to that effect on Thursday Night.

Phil Emery says Brandon Marshall is even better this season

“I’m always concerned about my body,” Marshall said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s a little scratch; I’m always concerned. So coming off my third hip surgery, structurally, everything is good. The joint is in amazing shape. So that’s exciting.”

You could not have described Marshall as excited last Tuesday when he shared concern about his conditioning and even wondered aloud about his role in the offense. That was coming off an exhibition game against the Raiders in which he dropped multiple passes.

“He’s going to get mad at me for saying this because I have been telling him this all summer: I see a guy that is better than he was last year,” Emery said. “I see a guy that is more dynamic. I see a guy better in and out of his breaks. I see a stronger player. I think he made the comments that he was at 4.5 body fat percentage. He looks it. When you stand up behind Brandon Marshall, you realize how big that man is at the position that he plays. He’s at an elite level for his position in terms of size, dynamic ability, production. I don’t see any back-off...Actually, I see a better player. Obviously, he was a little frustrated about where he is at and he’s definitely shared that with (me). That’s just an athlete wanting to be elite, wanting to be the best at his game.”

Pyro's take: Brandon Marshall rewrote the single season receiving record book for the Chicago Bears last season and is a top wide receiver in fantasy this season. There is concern that Marshall will not see the 118 catches he had last season in the spread it around offense of coach Trestman.

That being said, Marshall is still the number 1 target for Jay Cutler. The offense should and must be better for the Bears this season, and Trestman is implementing a faster offense with the plays coming quick to Cutler. This should help to give the Bears an extra 7-10 offensive plays per game as compared to last season. All of this means Marshall is not going to see as much of reduction in statistics as some people may think.

Brandon Marshall's Pros & Cons

(PRO) Just had the best season by a Bears WR in team history //

(PRO) 192 targets last season is pretty remarkable //

(PRO) In his seventh season in the league, Brandon had his most receptions, most yards and scored his most TDs (11) //

(PRO) Seven 100 yard games (two with 90+ yards) //

(PRO) Explosion factor: Week 8 against Titans he had 9 rec /122 yards / 3 TDs - solid outing that won many fantasy owners the week almost by himself //

(PRO) Brandon Marshall drops passes like porn stars take Z-Packs… 10 in 2012 (t2) //

(PRO) Has put up 1,000 yards in each of the last six seasons //

(PRO) With the ball in his hands, he's a monster… it looks like he wants to hurt the tackler //

(PRO) Seems to be past his allergic to touchdowns phase… //

(CON) Hard his knee scoped in January and hasn't been running as of early June //

(CON) The Bears will spread the ball around far more with Tressman running the offense //

(CON) He’s a self-admitted total head case…though the key to recovery is first admitting it, right? //

(CON) His wife Micah Nogami Marshall - is one argument away from stabbing her husband

Pyro's take: Like wake up sex while dating Janine Lindemulder, this fella' is about explode again bigtime. Cutler loves throwing to this #15, and for good reason. With the ball in his hands he's the hardest in the business to bring down - T.O.esque in that way. Hopefully his head is in the right place and he's working his hardest to take another leap toward become a potential Hall of Famer. That is the kind of potential The Beast has.

Brandon Marshall will sit out Week 17

Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall will not play against the Chiefs on Sunday due to what coach Josh McDaniels termed as a "coach's decision".

Pyro's take: Marshall hurt his hamstring at practice earlier this week, which is what everyone figured was the reason for the benching, but that's not what the coach is saying. Whatever the case, get Marshall out of your lineup if your fantasy Super Bowl is this weekend.

Marshall and Moreno share heated exchange Sunday

Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall and rookie running back Knowshon Moreno got into a little melee along the sidelines on Sunday after Moreno fumbled the ball away on the goal line.
"It's frustrating, those are plays that kill drives, and we've got to punch it in next time," Marshall said.

Pyro's take: Marshall twice bumped himself up face mask to face mask with Moreno, to which Moreno responded by by giving Marshall a sharp shove in the chest.
The exchange, however, is simply a microcosm of the larger problem the Broncos face, which is a four-game losing streak. We'll see how this affects the locker room and cohesiveness of the team going forward.

Marshall returns to practice

Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall (neck, back) returned to practice on Thursday after sitting out the previous day.

Pyro's take: Marshall is a lock to play, but his fantasy football value depends highly upon the health of QB Kyle Orton. If Orton plays, Marshall is a WR2 at worst. If Chris Simms is under center, don't expect much out of the big receiver, though he could still be used as a low-end WR3 or flex for your team.

Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall sat out practice on Wednesday with an apparent back injury.

Marshall's preseason fines dropped by team

According to an unnamed NFL source, as a sign of good faith, the Denver Broncos have dropped the fines incurred by wide receiver Brandon Marshall during the preseason.

Pyro's take: Marshall has been on his best behavior since all that prima donna stuff went down in the Pre, so this move doesn't shock us at all. Everybody's happy when you're winning and playing well, especially Marshall fantasy football owners who took the chance on him and have seen decent returns thus far.

Marshall letting his play earn him a new contract

“Brandon understands that he’s got a year left on his present deal, but if he keeps playing the way he is, he’s going to get a very significant raise — a much better contract,” Broncos owner Pat Bowlen said Tuesday at the NFL Fall League Meeting. “That’s the way it goes, and Brandon has accepted that.”

Pyro's take: It's good to see Marshall finally letting his actions do the talking instead of his whining. His play and his attitude are much improved, as is his fantasy football value now that he is in sync with QB Kyle Orton.

Brandon Marshall gaining steam

Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall started off the year slow, but has been getting better the more he's played with new QB Kyle Orton.

Pyro's take: Marshall can't even be considered a fantasy football WR2 with dud-armed Kyle Orton at the helm, and has now become more of a WR3 with upside at this point.
