Week 2 of the NFL season concludes with a matchup between the Chicago Bears and Seattle Seahawks. This also means that fantasy owners have a tough decision to make at wide receiver with Allen Robinson and Brandon Marshall in the game.
Robinson matches up against a Seahawks defense that allowed 329 passing yards in their season opener against the Denver Broncos. As for Robinson himself in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers, he finished with four catches on seven targets and 61 yards – his first game under the tutelage of offensive guru Matt Nagy. Look for things to progressively get better throughout the season the more time these two have together.
Marshall steps into a bigger role now with Doug Baldwin on the shelf for a few weeks. In the Seahawks season opener against the Broncos, Marshall posted three catches on six targets for 46 yards and a touchdown. This week, he’ll face a Bears defense that was diced up in their season opener by Aaron Rodgers, and the Packers top three receivers combined to post 19 catches on 26 targets for 299 receiving yards.

The Seahawks secondary isn't what it once was with players leaving, injured or just declining talent, so look for Robinson to have a productive evening.
On the other side, the matchup between the Bears defensive line and Seahawks offensive line could end up being a total mismatch, in favor of the Bears. That pass rush could end up making it difficult for the Seahawks to attack through the air.
