Brandon Marshall released by Giants

The New York Giants have informed 34-year-old veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall that he will be released. Marshall, who has racked up 959 catches, 12,215 receiving yards, and scored 82 touchdowns in 12 seasons with the Broncos, Dolphins, Bears, Jets, and Giants, will become a free agent and the Giants will free up over $5 million in cap space.

Fantasy Impact

A dependable source of receptions and yards, Marshall had a disastrous 2017 season with the Giants, catching only 18 passes in five games before being placed on I.R. with an ankle injury. The days of Marshall racking up 100+ receptions season are likely over, but he can still produce solid PPR value if he lands in the right situation. Meanwhile, speculation is rampant that the Giants released Marshall in anticipation of signing Dez Bryant, who has openly stated his desire to play in New York, as their WR2.

Brandon Marshall not expected to retire

New York Giants wide receiver Brandon Marshall (ankle) told the media he's not ready to retire.

Fantasy Impact

Marshall, whose 2017 season came to an early end this week after undergoing ankle surgery, is expected to return to the team in 2018. The 33-year-old wideout compiled a dismal 18-154-0 stat line through five games in 2017.

Brandon Marshall (ankle) out for the season

Brandon Marshall will undergo season-ending ankle surgery.

Fantasy Impact

The Giants are falling apart and this is the second season-ending injury the team will deal with from Week 5 alone. Both Marshall and Beckham Jr. are out with ankle injuries leaving Sterling Shepard (also hurt) and Roger Lewis as the only "healthy" options. Evan Engram should see a signifcant boost as one of the lone options left.

Fantasy Impact

The injury did not look good, so it's almost encouraging to hear that it's just a sprain. With Odell Beckham Jr. out for the season, Marshall's stock will shoot right up when he comes back from this ankle injury though. The Giants haven't been impressive this season, but with ODB out, somebody has to catch all of Eli's passes. Scoop him in your league if you need wide receiver help.

Brandon Marshall catches six balls against Buccaneers

Brandon Marshall snared six-of-ten targets for 46 yards against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Marshall saw double-digit targets from Eli Manning for the second straight week. It seems as though Marshall is finding his footing in this generally struggling Giants offence, as he's had 14 grabs in his last two games, compared to two receptions in his first two games. Marshall has not done much with those added looks and receptions however, and continues to be overshadowed by OBJ. If he doesn't pick up his pace soon Sterling Shepard, could come calling for his spot.
