|With Marshallís trade to the Bears in the offseason allowing him to be reunited with quarterback Jay Cutler, fantasy enthusiasts began envisioning Marshall putting together another 100-reception season like he did during 2007-2009. Thatís wishful thinking, folks. While Marshall and Cutler may make some sweet music this year in Chicago, Marshall isnít about to see the 169 targets in 2012. That is how many he averaged during his heyday with Cutler in Denver. Letís just say that the Bears have never targeted any receiver that much. While 100 receptions isnít likely on order, look for Marshall to continue his string of 1,000 receiving yard seasons, which currently stands at five. Toss in another 6-8 touchdowns and you have yourself a solid WR2 with little risk. Thatís right, folks. When a guy has topped 1,000 yards for five consecutive seasons and only missed four games over that span, you pretty much have to consider him risk free.
| Bryce Petty to start for Jets -- Sun Nov 13 9:10 am --|
Sprained MCL for Fitzpatrick
|So, Jets are starting QB Bryce Petty today vs Rams, per sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Ryan Fitzpatrick was able to practice this week on a limited basis but it appears the Jets will roll with Petty against the Rams. Brandon Marshall gets a bump down the rankings with Petty at QB while Rams-D makes for a solid play in Week 10.
| Jets' Fitzpatrick optimistic about playing -- Wed Nov 9 5:56 pm --|
|FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick says he is ''definitely optimistic'' that he'll be able to play Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams despite having a sprained left knee. (AP Sports)|
FF Today's Take: Ryan Fitzpatrick hasn't thrown multiple touchdown passes in a single game since Week 1 (when he was healthy) so don't expect much improvement if his mobility is compromised. 2015 fourth rounder Bryce Petty would be in line for the start if Fitzpatrick isn't given medical clearance. The whole situation puts a damper on the fantasy prospects for Brandon Marshall, Quincy Enunwa and the rest of the Jets' pass catchers.
| Eric Decker undergoes hip surgery -- Tue Oct 18 2:00 pm --|
Shoulder surgery needed as well
|The hip surgery was deemed necessary during an evaluation that occurred when Eric Decker was placed on injured reserve for a torn rotator cuff on October 12.† The anticipated recovery time for the surgery is six months. Once Decker is off crutches, he will subsequently undergo a procedure on his shoulder. The estimated recovery for his shoulder surgery is eight months.
(New York Jets)|
FF Today's Take: Considering Decker's shoulder surgery is delayed, his status for the start of the 2017 season is in question. Brandon Marshall, Quincy Enunwa remain the top two receivers for the Jets although the team is on the verge of spiraling out of control given the bad play at the quarterback position.
| Eric Decker expecting surgery within 1-2 weeks -- Thu Oct 13 7:30 pm --|
Expects 6-8 month rehab
|Jets WR Eric Decker, speaking for the first time since his season-ending surgery was announced, said he expects to have surgery in the next week or two. He said it will be a six- to eight-month rehab. Looking ahead to rehab, he said, "It's not a fun time, but obviously it's something that needs to be done to continue my career." He said the pain from the torn rotator cuff is like "someone is stabbing you," adding that it showed no improvement over the last two weeks. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Decker is safe to drop in redraft leagues. It is possible he could miss most of the team's offseason work if he pushes the back end of his estimated timeline. Quincy Enunwa will be a serviceable WR3 in most leagues during his absence, but the real winners in this deal for fantasy purposes are the owners of Brandon Marshall, who should be among the league leaders in targets from here on out.
| Eric Decker out Week 5 -- Fri Oct 7 1:00 pm --|
|Wide receiver Eric Decker has been ruled out for the second straight week due to a partially torn rotator cuff in his shoulder. Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa is questionable with a knee injury after not appearing on the injury report earlier in the week, so the Jets could be quite shorthanded at wideout if things donít go his way. (ProFootballTalk)|
FF Today's Take: With Decker out, Enunwa would be counted on to see an increase in targets but this new knee injury is concerning. Brandon Marshall is shaping up to be a high-end WR1. Robby Anderson could see an increase in targets if Enunwa is ruled out.
| Brandon Marshall could be limited in Week 3 -- Sun Sep 25 8:15 am --|
Expected to play
|Even though Jets WR Brandon Marshall expected to be active today, he likely will be on snap count due to foot/knee injury. Weather also bad. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: This sounds like a situation to avoid for fantasy owners. Marshall is more of a WR3 in a game he might see limited snaps. It's raining in Kansas City this morning, but expected to clear before the late-afternoon kickoff.
| Brandon Marshall limited Friday -- Fri Sep 23 1:30 pm --|
|Speaking to the media Friday, Todd Bowles says Brandon Marshall is "probably a game-time" decision after limited practice, making it likely he'll play in Kansas City on Sunday.
"Hopefully. That's the plan," Marshall said when asked if he'll play. "I have to be smart. It's a long season."
Marshall continues to battle a knee and foot injury since being tackled by his facemask in a Week 2 win over the Buffalo Bills. (NY Daily News)|
FF Today's Take: Unfortunately for fantasy owners the Jets and Chiefs don't kick off until late Sunday afternoon. Hopefully we'll get a clearer picture on Marshall's status by Sunday morning. Quincy Enunwa would see an increased role if Marshall sits.
| Brandon Marshall not ruled out for Sunday -- Tue Sep 20 10:19 am --|
Jets WR feels "stable" and might take on Chiefs
|Brandon Marshall didn't practice Monday because of the knee injury he suffered in the Jets' win over the Bills on Thursday ó one that looked much worse at first glance ó but he remains optimistic he'll have a chance to play Sunday when the Jets take on the Chiefs in Kansas City. (New York Daily News)|
FF Today's Take: "The school I come from is, don't rule me out until Sunday. I need all the way up until pregame warmup to see if I'm good to go," Marshall said Monday. "Right now, I feel stable. I feel good. And I'm going to work my tail off to get out there and be out there with the guys."
This is worth monitoring, but with Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa (ribs) playing well, Marshall may not have to be forced back into action so quickly.
