News: 1 day agoMarshall was not targeted in Monday night's 20-17 loss to the Saints.
Spin: Marshall, who led Carolina's wideouts in snaps Week 1, was pushed down the depth chart with DJ Chark making his season debut. His addition led to Marshall playing under 40 percent of the offensive downs, trailing rookie Jonathan Mingo, Adam Thielen and Chark. In a limited passing game thus far, Marshall's fourth receiver role doesn't seem to carry much fantasy upside.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Marshall is entering his third NFL season after an underwhelming start to his career. The 2021 second-round pick was limited to a 17-138-0 receiving line in a situational role as a rookie and failed to make a substantial leap in a larger role in 2022. Marshall played 76% of the snaps in 14 games last season but reached double-digit fantasy points in only three games. There's still hope for Marshall (he's only 23 years old and will be working with a new coach in Frank Reich and new QB in rookie Bryce Young), but he has an uphill battle for consistent fantasy production with veterans DJ Chark and Adam Thielen and rookie Jonathan Mingo added during the offseason. Marshall should only be on rosters in dynasty.
