2015 fantasy football player spotlights

Brandon Marshall

3/7/2015: Brandon Marshall is now wearing a Jets uniform, as he was just traded to the Jets in exchange for a fifth-round pick. This could be great news for Alshon Jeffery, who is ready to become a true fantasy WR1 in 2015, but this isn’t the greatest news for… Read Spotlight

2015 fantasy football player spotlights

Brandon Marshall (WR/CHI)

2/12/2015: Brandon Marshall is a tough player to own right now, as he clearly disappointed fantasy owners in 2014 (in a major way). Is he on the decline? Did he, and the Bears, just have a bad year in 2014? Honestly, I think a decline could very well Read Spotlight

Hey Starters Nation:

Looking for an early 2015 Fantasy Football Mock Draft / Rankings heading into 2015? This is a dynasty mock draft, so keep in mind that players like Marshawn Lynch, Peyton Manning, Matt Forte, among others, are going to fall much, much further than they would in a early 2015 fantasy football yearly-league mock draft, but this mock draft should be rather useful to all fantasy leaguers, as for the most part things in redraft and dynasty can often times line-up rather well entering January. On that note, enjoy!

Are you a dynasty fantasy football nut in need of some 2015 fantasy football content? Well, here is a writeup on the Top 20 Fantasy Football Dynasty Players heading into 2015 and beyond. Note, this is not a fantasy football mock draft, it is more of a value-based board, meaning you will find Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck a lot higher than you’d want to draft them, which ultimately means that I’m suggesting that their values are fantastic when faced off against their early 2015 Average Draft Positions (ADPs). So, again, this is NOT a mock draft, but in many cases will mirror where mocks have some of the players going in early mocks. Enjoy.View Top 20 Dynasty Players

NEWS: Week 15 Monday Night Inactives

SMITTY: Robbie Gould is inactive for the Bears in tonight's Week 15 battle against the Saints; Jay Feely will kick for the Saints in this one. If for any reason you didn't know about Gould, grab Feely and start him ASAP. As for game predictions, we expect a high-scoring outing, with Drew Brees dialing up at least 2TDs, and if this game doesn't get out of hand fast, Matt Forte could be looking at a nice little stat line in this one. Alshon Jeffery is a WR1 heading into this one and Week 16, while Mark Ingram is too talented to bench, but the threat of inconsistent carries has him looking more like a RB2 in the final two weeks of the fantasy season. While there is concern about Jimmy Graham coming through for fantasy owners here in the final two weeks of the fantasy season, we feel pretty good about him being a top 5 finisher this week when this game is all said and done.

NEWS: Brandon Marshall done for the year.

SMITTY: (update: Brandon Marshall did in fact suffer a collapsed lung) – This is horrible news for fantasy owners. The receiver has two fractured ribs and possibly a punctured lung. Given his dip in production this year, and age, it’s possible we never see the same Marshall again. Alshon Jeffery is a very strong WR1 for now and the future. Marquess Wilson will start for CHI the rest of the way and is a decent WR3 pickup. Looking for Week 14 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Brandon Marshall (ribs) knocked out of Week 14 and taken to hospital.

SMITTY: This injury didn’t look good when it happened, evidence by the fact that Marshall was taken to the hospital. Keep in mind that Miles Austin (kidney) and Justin Hunter (spleen) were both lost for the year on brutal hits kind of like this, so this needs to be monitored closely. Let’s hope there isn’t any sort of internal damage, like in the cases of Austin and Hunter, as that could end the receiver’s season. Stay tuned. Looking for Week 14 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) questionable for Week 14 tonight (Thursday Night Football).

SMITTY: While we hate a player being ‘questionable’ heading into the day of the game, which happens to be tonight’s Thursday night battle between the Bears and Cowboys, Jeffery appears to be on track to start in this one. Clearly stay on top of both our news wire here and our Smart Alerts, as we will blast out an update once we have it. We expect a lot of scoring in this game. Looking for Week 14 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Brandon Marshall (ankle) probable for Week 13.

SMITTY: We expect him to play, but check right up until kickoff on this one. He is absolutely a fantasy WR1 if going. He is a great buy-low candidate as well. That Chicago offense has struggled, but struggling or not, they will throw the ball a lot and both Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are very underrated fantasy-wise heading into Weeks 13-17. Looking for Week 13 Power Rankings?

Brandon Marshall (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 13.
Marshall was limited in practice throughout the week. He’ll be a borderline WR1 for Thursday’s game against the Lions.
