WR - NYG - OUT
Week 17 Outlook
Brandon Marshall signs two-year deal with Giants
Brandon Marshall has signed a two-year deal with the Giants worth $12M according to league sources. This move solidifies the Giants' receiving corps heading into the 2017 NFL campaign.
Now teaming up with Odell Beckham, Eli Manning and Sterling Shepard, Marshall should see an increase in fantasy value despite competition for targets. Lining up with Beckham, and with Manning under center, Marshall should see less double teams and could be in for a big season as the Giants' WR2. The move also enhances the fantasy value of Manning, Beckham and Shepard for the same reason as league defenses will have more weapons on the Giants' offense to contend with.
Brandon Marshall signs with Giants
The New York Giants and wide receiver Brandon Marshall agreed to terms on a two-year, $12 million deal Wednesday.
Although Marshall was cut from the Jets, he is not leaving New York. He signed a two-year deal with the Giants Wednesday. The veteran wideout will likeky assume the vacant role that Victor Cruz left when he was released earlier in the offseason. With Marshall, Sterling Shepard and Odell Beckham on the roster, the Giants' offense and Eli Manning are poised for a bounce back year in 2017.
Brandon Marshall signs two-year deal with the Giants
Newsday Sports is reporting that Brandon Marshall and the Giants have agreed on a two-year deal.
The details aren't known quite yet, but this is what was expected all along. Marshall wanted to remain in New York for his obligations in media. His catch rate of 46.1 percent was easily the worst of his career, and you have to wonder if he's reached the end of what's been a great career. We've witnessed Roddy White and Andre Johnson most recently hit that point in their careers. If there is anything left in the tank, Marshall often has the honeymoon phase in his first year with a new team.
Brandon Marshall to be released
The New York Jets plan to releas wide receive Brandon Marshall.
Marshall finished 2016 with 59 receptions, 788 yards, and 3 touchdowns on 128 targets. Depending on where the 32-year-old WR goes will depend on how relevant he will be fantasy wise. Either way, you can't get much worse than the Jets offense last year. Expect Marshall's numbers to go up and most likely be cheaper on draft day than most years.
Brandon Marshall more likely to stay with Jets
New York Jets beat reporter Jordan Raanan believes that the team is more likely to keep wide receiver Brandon Marshall than release him.
Raanan cites Marshall's affordable salary (owed $7.5M in the last year of his deal) and the fact that the team doesn't have their starting quarterback set as primary reasons why Marshall is likely to stay. Despite a down year, Marshall should bounce back as a quality WR2 next year.
