Brandon Marshall with 66-yards in Giants' Week 3 loss

Brandon Marshall managed just 66-yards on eight receptions in the Giants' Week 3 loss to the Eagles 27-24. He was targeted 11 times, second on the team only to Odell Beckham, but still ended the game with very modest numbers for a player who was likely drafted as a fantasy WR2/3.

Fantasy Impact

Marshall has been a fantasy disappointment so far in 2017. At this point, Sterling Shepard appears to be the other Giants' WR to own (and appears to have a higher ceiling than Marshall). Owners in 12+ team leagues should continue to hold Marshall while he continues to develop a rapport with Eli Manning as the season progresses but he should remain inactive until he begins to produce. Owners in 10-team leagues likely have better options available to them on the waiver-wire.

Brandon Marshall with just one reception in Week 2 loss

Brandon Marshall, unable to get on the same page with Eli Manning so far in 2017, managed just one lone catch for 17 yards in the Giants' 24-10 loss to the Lions in Week 2. Marshall had a huge second-down drop late in the game which would have gone for at least 30 yards. The drop eventually resulted in a punt on fourth down which iced the game for the Lions when Jamal Agnew took the punt 88-yards for a touchdown. Marshall also whiffed on a target from Eli Manning in the end zone in the fourth quarter.

Fantasy Impact

The Giants offense, including Marshall, looks totally clueless out there so far in 2017. Targeted just five times in this week's disaster, Marshall's fantasy value is trending downward. Marshall will be very hard to trust as a Flex option in 12-team formats for the Giants' Week 3 game in Philadelphia. He should be relegated to the bench in 10-team and 12-team formats at this point.

Brandon Marshall with lone reception in Week 1 disaster

Brandon Marshall was held to just one catch on four targets for 10 yards in the Giants' absolutely vile 19-3 Week 1 loss to Dallas.

Fantasy Impact

Marshall, who had a Week 1 FantasyPros ECR of 23 in standard leagues (25 ECR in PPR formats), was only targeted four times in the game with Odell Beckham out due to injury. His one catch came with about 30 seconds remaining in the game during garbage time. The Giants' game plan was totally disjointed and their OL was completely dominated by Dallas, two factors which directly resulted in Marshall's poor statistics. Marshall (and the entire Giants' offense) will try to get back on track in Week 2 against the Lions at home next Monday night. If Beckham returns, and the OL can rebound, Marshall should be a more viable fantasy asset. That said, given the OL woes, Marshall owners may need to significantly temper expectations until (and unless) the Giants' poor performing OL is fixed.

Brandon Marshall to play Week 1?

New York Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall (shoulder) told the media he will play in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

Although Marshall was inactive for the final two preseason games, Marshall believes he will be ready to play in the season opener Sunday night against Dallas. He is a mid-tier WR2 for Week 1 facing a suspect Cowboys secondary.

Brandon Marshall questionable with shoulder injury

Brandon Marshall with a shoulder injury took part in the team portion of Monday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

Returning to team drills doesn't necessarily mean Marshall was uninhibited, but it's certainly a positive development within a banged-up receiving corps. Elsewhere, Odell Beckham and Tavarres King remained on the sidelines due to respective ankle injuries, the former of which is the most worrisome by a long shot. If Beckham is a DNP in Week 1, Marshall would represent the top option in the passing attack for Eli Manning, though second-year wide out Sterling Shepard could give the veteran a run for his money.
