The Redskins showered Morgan with a lucrative two-year deal worth a reported $12-million in the offseason as part of an effort to overhaul a passing offense that struggled in 2011. The contract raised some eyebrows around the league especially considering the team already had Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson and Jabar Gaffney (since released) on the roster. As a 49er in 2011, Morgan missed all but five games of the season after suffering a broken leg, finishing the year with 15 receptions for 220 yards and one touchdown. The 2008 sixth-round pick burst onto the scene with an impressive training camp performance as a rookie but largely failed to assert himself as a consistent receiving option during his four years in San Francisco. In Washington, he will battle for a spot in the starting lineup but as a possession receiver with little upside in a crowded receiving corps, he has little fantasy appeal. He is clearly a lower-tier fantasy backup in all leagues but a player with more value in PPR leagues. A breakout 2012 campaign is very unlikely.
Marshall likely out rest of the season-- Fri Dec 5 7:30 pm --
Two fractured ribs and lung injury
Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall will not play again this season after suffering two fractured ribs and a lung injury during the team's 41-28 loss Thursday night to the Dallas Cowboys, two sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Marshall remained hospitalized Friday receiving treatment.
FF Today's Take:Marshall has already been ruled out for Week 15 and it appears his season is over. Look for Marquess Wilson to move into Marshall's spot on the outside with Josh Morgan filling the slot receiver's role.
