    Marshall just had a 1500 – 14 TD season. He is extremely consistent and has put up over 20 points 10 of 16 weeks and never scored less than 10. That’s the definition of “plug and play”.

    Everyone knows that he is a workout machine and takes fantastic care of his body. He’ll be a very solid starter for the next 3 years.

      Three years? Wow. Hey, anything can happen, and some receivers have played well past 33, but it’s more rare than most think. Steve Smith is an example of an old guy breaking through, but typically, at 32-33, the drop off is serious. So, I’m thinking sell this year, if not later in the season, as I still think he can have 1 more year left. But, selling early while he has the kinda value you’re promoting (see, now is the time to sell ūüôā ), to me it’s go time on the selling. It doesn’t mean he can’t do well this year, I want to repeat that, but clearly he still has great value, and an injury-filled season would have you struggling to get much at all for him this time next year. Always trust your gut, though, buddy! Nice take! Keep it coming.

    What do you think about Donald Brown going to the Pats? What are his chances of a) sticking on the roster & b) being productive if he does.

      Tough to say, Darin, but great question. I think in larger leagues, he is worth grabbing, but honestly I’m not expecting much. That can change, he has enough talent I guess to do well if thrown into a starter role, and with NE, anything is possible with their rotation. But, I am not going to hold out much hope if I own him, that’s for sure.

      Keep up the good posting!!
