Brandon Marshall caught 1-of-5 targets for 17 yards in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Lions.
Marshall was held without a catch on one target in the first half and was stopped at the one-yard line on his lone grab in the third quarter. He later committed a flat-out brutal drop down the sideline on a play where he had a step on the cornerback for what should have been a gain of 30-plus yards. Marshall has no connection with Eli Manning right now and has just two catches for 27 yards through two games. He's closer to being droppable than usable in fantasy. Sep 18 - 11:43 PM

Brandon Marshall was held to one catch for 10 yards in Week 1 against the Cowboys.

His only catch came on the second last play of the game. Marshall was targeted four times, behind Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram, and Roger Lewis. Even if Odell Beckham doesn't return, Marshall is a Week 2 fade against Detroit.

Brandon Marshall (shoulder) said he is ready to go for Week 1.

Marshall missed a week of practice and the final two preseason games after suffering a shoulder injury, but he will be all systems go for the opener. "Other than that hit I had in Cleveland the body feels amazing," Marshall said. "So, that's kind of encouraging being 33 and trying to be aware of where I'm at." It is concerning Marshall has already suffered an injury after being banged up all of last year, but he is at least entering Week 1 healthy. It remains to be seen if Odell Beckham will join him.

Brandon Marshall (shoulder) resumed practicing on Monday.

Marshall missed a week of practice. Now 33, Marshall was banged up for much of 2016, but missed only one game. His health is not a Week 1 concern.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Giants aren't concerned about Brandon Marshall's shoulder injury.

Rapsheet was told "he'll be fine" while adding that the Giants have "no worries." Marshall bowed out of Monday's preseason game with a shoulder issue but his X-rays came back negative. It looks like the G-Men dodged a couple of major injury bullets with Marshall and Odell Beckham both escaping Monday night's game with only minor ailments.

Brandon Marshall is undergoing an X-ray on his shoulder.

It's unclear when the injury happened, as Marshall caught a short little out route pass on the final play of the first half and didn't appear to be injured on the play. He didn't come out after halftime with the starters done for the night. Marshall has long been one of the toughest receivers in the league.

Eli Manning said he and Brandon Marshall are "getting on the same page."

"Every day there's something new that comes up though," Manning said. "You've got to get in as many live reps, one-on-ones, get running different routes, getting on the same timing with things will be good." Marshall reportedly had his best practice of camp on Monday, making plays with defenders on his back and looking like the receiver of old. If that continues, Marshall will have a good chance to pay off his WR25 ADP.

Brandon Marshall has regularly used FaceTime to review plays with Eli Manning.

The two have stayed in contact between OTAs and training camp with frequent study sessions on FaceTime. Marshall has ruffled feathers on every team that he's ever been on, but so far the Giants have been impressed by his professionalism and work ethic. ESPN's Jordan Raanan notes that Marshall spent almost the entire offseason at the Giants' facility. Marshall is coming off a down year with the Jets, but he should fare better in a pass-happy Giants offense.

Speaking Tuesday, Jets DL Sheldon Richardson said "there are 15 reasons why" the Jets locker room is "easier" this season.

Richardson was clearly referencing ex-Jets teammate Brandon Marshall, who wears No. 15. Both Richardson and Marshall have had issues with teammates since they joined the NFL, though it's Marshall who has now worn out his welcome with four different teams. The lack of direction and leadership in the Jets organization probably didn't help Richardson and Marshall's relationship.

Brandon Marshall said he plans to play two more seasons.

"That's the first time I've said that," Marshall said to the crowd at the NBC4 Health and Fitness Expo. "Two more years and I'm gone." The timeline is not surprising considering Marshall just turned 33 and signed a two-year deal in March, but announcing the decision this early is a bit odd. That said, Marshall was simply responding to a question and clearly did not plan to announce his retirement at the event. It is very possible he changes his mind between now and 2019.

Eli Manning compared the addition of Brandon Marshall to Plaxico Burress.

"I was excited when we made that acquisition," Manning said. "He's obviously a big target. I think Plaxico was kind of the last one similar to that size. They can be open when they’re not really open. You don’t want to get into a habit, it’s not a jump-ball but you can throw him open." Like Burress (6'5/232), Marshall is massive (6'4/230) and can provide a much-needed presence in the red zone. In his three complete seasons with the G-Men, Burress averaged 1,075 yards and 9.3 TDs. Despite Marshall's down 2016, there's very little reason he can't get back to 1,000 yards and double-digit scores in this pass-heavy offense.

After signing with the Giants, Brandon Marshall referred to himself and Sterling Shepard as "No. 2s" behind Odell Beckham.

A Giant for two years and $11 million, Marshall insisted he took far less money than offered elsewhere -- which is believable. Saying all the right things, Marshall insisted he won't complain about targets, is a willing mentor for younger OBJ and Shepard, and joined the G-Men to compete for a Super Bowl. "The best way I can describe how I approach it is being able to have a real shot at [a championship]," said Marshall, who turns 33 this month. "I think that is what I have here."

Giants signed WR Brandon Marshall, formerly of the Jets, to a two-year, $12 million contract.

Marshall takes a pay cut in annual average to stay in East Rutherford and join a contender. He was owed $7.5 million from the Jets before being cut. The Giants badly needed another proven receiver to take heat off Odell Beckham and upgrade on Victor Cruz. Marshall meets those qualifications and should be in line for a nice bounce-back season in a pass-happy offense that doesn't currently employ a strong running game or tight end. Eli Manning will have to pick up his play to make it work, however. Marshall turns 33 in two weeks but is back to fantasy WR2 status.

Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports the Patriots and free agent Brandon Marshall have "some mutual interest."

After being released by the Jets, Marshall was inevitably going to be linked with the Patriots at some point. Perhaps New England will show some interest, but they finally have quality options at receiver and bigger issues on the other side of the ball. Marshall has also been linked with the Giants and Ravens.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano considers the Giants a landing spot for free agent Brandon Marshall.

Marshall fills multiple needs for the Giants as an outside receiver with size to complement Odell Beckham. He was scheduled to make $7.5 million with the Jets, but may be open to a team-friendly deal to stay in New York. The Giants could use Marshall to upgrade their red-zone offense after they ranked in the bottom half of the league last year. Marshall has also been linked to the Ravens.
