Marshall: Break Out Of Your Shell

 

Let’s be honest for second:  how many of you have Brandon Marshall on your fantasy team? I do, and it is starting to hurt.  Marshall was my 2nd round selection, and has not lived up to his high draft status.  What is going on here? Why is one of the best WR’s in the game only producing mediocre receiving numbers and only 1TD?

Let’s take a closer look.

To understand what the defense’s are doing against Marshall you have to understand shell coverage.  Shell coverage is a lot like what it sounds; CB and FS are providing zone coverage over the top and underneath (forming a shell) around Marshall.  Therefore, making any attempt to throw the ball at the Marshall a high risk play.

    I benched Marshall and I’m using T O and Brandon Lloyd. I don’t think the dolphins put enough effort into getting Marshall the ball. It appears that they are ok with him being a decoy.
