WR Brandon Marshall of the Chicago Bears has emerged as a top-tier wideout and will come off the board very early this summer. To help you form your draft strategy, here is a statistical prediction for Marshall's 2014 fantasy season.

Games Played – 16

Marshall hasn’t missed a game in three straight seasons and the veteran has become an anchor in fantasy lineups. He is on the field every single week and will play another 16 games in 2014.

Receptions – 103

The continuing emergence of Alshon Jeffrey will cause Marshall’s reception total to drop a bit again this year. He will still rack up over 100 receptions; just don’t expect him to haul in over 115 balls this year.

Receiving Yards - 1,349

Marshall has posted seven straight 1,000-yard seasons, including back-to-back seasons with over 1,200 yards. He has become the favorite target for QB Jay Cutler and will continue to rack up yards on a weekly basis.

YPC – 13.1

True to my prediction, Marshall will average 13.1 yards per catch if he catches 103 balls for 1,349 yards. He averaged 13.0 yards per reception in 2013 and fantasy fans can expect similar production from the wideout this fall.

Touchdowns – 11

Marshall has caught 22 touchdowns in two seasons in the Windy City and has become a guaranteed 10-plus touchdowns in this offense. Look for him to haul in 11 touchdowns in 2014.
