WR - FA
After signing with the Saints just this week, veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall will not be active this week against the Eagles. Marshall still needs a little more time to get up to speed with Sean Payton's complex playbook and terminology. The Saints host the Falcons in a juicy Thanksgiving night matchup next week.
This wasn't unexpected. New Orleans will go to battle against an injury-ravaged Philadelphia secondary with Michael Thomas, Tre'Quan Smith, and Austin Carr.
Brandon Marshall has signed a one-year deal with the Saints.
New Orleans appeared to have their solution at WR with the signing of Dez Bryant, only to watch the veteran suffer a season-ending injury prior to his first game. Like Dez, Marshall brings a big body and experience at the WR position. Marshall wasn't able to do much with a similar opportunity in Seattle, but he should see more potential volume in New Orleans in an offense that can score points. As such, he could be worth scooping for upside with a floor of a TD-dependent flex option.
Wide Receiver Brandon Marshall has been released by the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.
Marshall had fallen out of the game plan in recent weeks and was not even targeted in the team's Week 8 win over the Detroit Lions. He has just 11 catches for 136 yards and one touchdown on the season, but Schefter adds that Marshall "absolutely" wants to keep playing.
Brandon Marshall caught his only target for 11 yards.
Marshall continues to see less action in favor of younger players that are advancing, such as David Moore. With the return of Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett also displaying a connecting with Russell Wilson, Marshall is hardly rosterable at this point.
Brandon Marshall did not catch a pass in Week 5 versus the Rams.
He saw just one target. With Doug Baldwin back and David Moore earning more time, Marshall just isn't getting involved. He's best left on your fantasy league's waiver wire.
