No. 10: Wide Receiver Brandon Marshall
Speaking of Brandon Marshall, him moving from the Jets to Giants should signify a jump in his production, right?
After all, the Jets’ quarterbacking situation in 2016 was terrible, and Marshall still managed to haul in 788 yards and three touchdowns. Opposite Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Marshall might be a nice beneficiary of this dual-headed monster, and it doesn’t hurt to have a quarterback in Eli Manning under center.
Here’s the problem.
Marshall is 33 years old and, aside from Beckham, the Giants offense is getting older and slower. Offensive line questions in New York spark question marks, and it’s likely the G-Men are going to rely more on their defense than offense in 2017.
Most projections I have read show Marshall going somewhere around Round 5 in fantasy football drafts.
Yet ESPN ranks him the No. 34 overall receiver heading into this season, meaning it’s only a smart move to grab him if it’s much, much later in the draft.
