Brandon Marshall likely to continue TD streak in Week 1

CBS Sports

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall put a cap on his 2013 season by scoring touchdowns in each of his last three games. On Sunday against the Bills, he's primed to extend that TD streak to four games.

Marshall is less of a big play threat than fellow starter Alshon Jeffery, but he does plenty of damage in his own right. Half of his 12 touchdowns last season were from within six yards of the end zone. Nine of his touchdowns came on passes from starter Jay Cutler. If the Bears can get to the red zone repeatedly Sunday -- and they can -- Cutler should hook up with Marshall for at least one score.

Marshall had double-digit targets 11 times last season, failing to reach eight targets only once all season. The space should be there over the middle against a depleted Buffalo linebacker corps and a secondary without Jairus Byrd. Marshall snagged half of his 100 receptions in the middle of the field within 20 yards of the line of scrimmage, per Pro Football Focus. Look for him to exploit that same part of the field Sunday en route to a big Fantasy day.
