#22-2012 Brandon Marshall WR Chicago Bears- Marshall is the first true #1 wide receiver in the last well forever! Seriously there have been some rare great seasons by Marty Booker and Marcus Robinson, but Marshall is the first true great fantasy wide receiver the Bears have had on their roster.  Marshall was even better than advertised catching 118 for 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns.  Hopefully with Trestman at the helm these stats will only get higher! It’s finally good to be a homer when drafting fantasy wide receivers.

Retro #22-2002 Donovan McNabb QB Philadelphia Eagles- McNabb was injured for the last six weeks of this season, but still put up his normal stats during this decade of 3,000ish yards passing 20ish TD’s and 5 rushing TD’s. McNabb was the 2nd tier fantasy QB during most of his career mostly for his rushing yards and TD’s.

Looking Ahead

ESPN-Dez Bryant-WR Dallas Cowboys We have discussed Bryant twice already. Just know he’s gone by the middle of the 2nd round at the latest.

CBS-Brandon Marshall- Marshall in some drafts lasts into the third round, but if you’re in a draft with a bunch of Bears fans there is not telling how high he will be drafted!
