Fantasy Football: Top 10 WR Heading Into NFL 2016

7. Brandon Marshall (NYJ)

Has anyone been more consistent throughout their career lately than Brandon Marshall? 10 seasons with 4 different teams, and only had less than 1,000 yards receiving in two of those seasons; his rookie year and 2014 where he missed three games and only came up 279 yards shy of 1,000.  Very likely that he would have surpassed the century mark for the ninth time had he suited up for those three and been healthy the others.

Marshall has been known to have some slight stone hands due to the fact that he likes to drop a lot of passes, but when he does make the catch, he makes it count.

His touchdown numbers are a bit hard to predict as he has been all over the place in touchdown receptions throughout his career, but PPR leagues make that a little less worrisome since he is good for anywhere between 80-100 catches.

He enjoyed his best season as a pro in his 10th season with his new team, the New York Jets, where he helped Ryan Fitzpatrick enjoy his best season and fellow wide receiver Eric Decker who also surpassed 1,000 yards and brought in 12 touchdowns of his own.

With the team currently in limbo over who is going to be their starting quarterback for the 2015-16 season, Marshall’s fantasy status is in flux.  Currently the Jets QB options consist of Geno Smith, second year Bryce Petty, and rookie Christian Hackenberg.

If Fitzpatrick swallows his pride or the Jets decide to meet his demands Marshall belongs higher on the list, but until then it’s hard to see him having another great season with one of those three at the helm.

Prediction: 89 Catches – 1,200 Yards – 9 Touchdowns
