Working out for Colts

Marshall is slated to work out for the Colts on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Marshall has been off the fantasy radar the past couple of seasons, and at age 35, it's hard to imagine him making a big splash if he does catch on with the Colts. The team's wideout corps is currently headed by T.Y. Hilton, Devin Funchess, Chester Rogers and rookie Parris Campbell.

Cut by Saints

Marshall was released by the Saints on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: A healthy scratch the past four weeks, Marshall never actually played in a game during his month-long stint with the Saints. He caught 11 of 23 targets for 136 yards and a touchdown in six games for Seattle early in the season, with 2017 seventh-round pick David Moore subsequently proving to be an upgrade in the No. 3 receiver role. Marshall will have a tough time finding another team this season and may ultimately decide to retire.

Remains down in Week 14

Marshall (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 14 tilt against the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Marshall will be on the sidelines for the fourth consecutive game, as the Saints will roll with Michael Thomas, Tre'Quan Smith, Austin Carr and Keith Kirkwood as their top four receiving options.

Healthy scratch yet again

Marshall (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Thursday at Dallas, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: A healthy scratch for a third consecutive game, Marshall again will don street clothes instead of pads as a member of the Saints. It remains to be seen the scenario in which he'll be given a shot to play, but with Tre'Quan Smith back from a one-game absence, Marshall's services are needed less than they were on Thanksgiving against the Falcons, when he also was inactive.

Debut with Saints delayed again

Marshall (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Thursday against the Falcons.

Analysis: In his first two chances to suit up as a member of the Saints, Marshall has been deemed a healthy scratch. Granted, he's only been a part of the organization for 10 days, but rookie wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith (toe) also is inactive, so routes would have been available for Marshall. Instead, the Saints will roll with Michael Thomas, Keith Kirkwood and Austin Carr at wideout.

Unlikely to make Saints debut

Marshall isn't expected to be active Sunday against the Eagles, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Marshall hasn't even spent a week with his new organization, so it's no surprise the 34-year-old is slated to be among the Saints' inactives Week 11. While he works his way into the good graces of Sean Payton and Drew Brees, Marshall may have a tough time working his way into an offense that revolves around Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara and (to a lesser extent) Mark Ingram.

Signing with Saints

Marshall is signing a one-year contract with the Saints on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The 34-year-old will step in as a backup plan for Dez Bryant, who suffered a torn Achilles on Friday in his second practice with the team. Marshall caught 11 of 23 target for 136 yards (5.9 YPT) and a touchdown in seven games with the Seahawks earlier this season, eventually losing snaps to David Moore and ultimately getting released Oct. 30. The Saints probably expect Marshall to push Austin Carr for the No. 3 receiver job behind Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith, with Ted Ginn (knee) stuck on injured reserve through at least Week 14. Aside from an injury to Thomas, it's hard to picture a scenario in which Marshall draws more than three or four targets per game. The Saints host the Eagles in Week 11.

Visiting Saints, could sign Monday

Marshall will visit the Saints on Monday, with the team hoping to sign him to a contract, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

Analysis: Marshall worked out for the Saints last week, but despite him showing well, the team opted to sign Dez Bryant to boost its ailing receiving corps. Of course, Bryant would go on to tear his Achilles in his second practice with New Orleans, sending the Saints back to square one. With the 34-year-old Marshall still available, it appears Monday could see him join the fold. In seven games with the Seahawks this season, Marshall caught 11 of 23 targets for 136 yards and a touchdown, but was released late last month.

Eyeing agreement with Saints

The Saints are expected to work out Marshall early this week with the intention to sign him to a contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Prior to the Saints inking Bryant to a deal Wednesday, both Marshall and Kamar Aiken went through auditions, only to remain free agents. In his first practice Friday, though, Bryant suffered an injury that an MRI later determined to be a torn Achilles. Bryant joins four other wide receivers on IR in New Orleans -- also, Ted Ginn (knee), Cameron Meredith (knee), Tommylee Lewis (knee) and Travin Dural (arm) -- necessitating yet another signing at the position. Between an injury-plagued 2017 and sparse usage with the Seahawks this season, Marshall combined for 29 catches (on 56 targets) for 290 yards and one touchdown in 12 games.

Trying out with Detroit

Marshall recently went through a workout with the Lions, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

Analysis: Recently let go by Seattle, the 34-year-old Marshall is reportedly intent on keeping his career alive, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Given the Lions' lack of depth at wideout behind Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay, Detroit initially appears like one of the few landing spots around the league that could realistically offer him a significant offensive role. However, it would be interesting to see how the 6-foot-5 veteran would fit into an offense already populated by the 6-foot-2 Jones and 6-foot-4 Golladay.

Cut loose by Seahawks

The Seahawks released Marshall on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: After signing with the team in late May, Marshall has plagued by ankle and hamstring injuries for the rest of the offseason program and into the preseason. Once the regular season kicked off, he earned six targets in each of the Seahawks' first three games, but he fell out of favor over the last four contests (just five targets total). The decision to cut Marshall loose likely was an easy one due to the emergence of Tyler Lockett and David Moore, plus Doug Baldwin's ability to handle a full workload.

Oct 30, 2018 12:01 PM EST

Falls out of game plan

Marshall had no targets and just two offensive snaps in Sunday's 28-14 win over the Lions.

Analysis: Since having six targets in each of the first three games, Marshall's offensive production has tanked to just two targets in the last three outings. In fact, he's dropped to fifth in the wideout pecking order. Fantasy owners shouldn't lost sleep from dropping the 34-year-old receiver as the Seahawks use young talents such as David Moore.

Oct 29, 2018 5:31 PM EST

One target in second straight contest

Marshall caught his only target for 11 yards in Sunday's 27-3 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: Marshall once again fell behind in the pecking order, as David Moore passed him in offensive snaps for the third straight week. Barring an injury, he's fit to stay on waivers.

Oct 14, 2018 10:52 PM EST

Plays just seven snaps

Marshall played just seven snaps in Sunday's 33-31 loss to the Rams, finishing without a catch on one target.

Analysis: Marshall appears to have lost the No. 3 receiver job to David Moore, who caught three of four targets for 38 yards and two TDs while playing 31 snaps (52 percent) on offense in Sunday's loss. With Jaron Brown (nine snaps) also in the mix for playing time, the Seahawks might consider dumping Marshall in favor of a depth receiver that can help out on special teams.

Oct 8, 2018 8:06 AM EST

Just one catch Sunday

Marshall caught one of three targets for five yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Cardinals.

Analysis: Marshall had six targets in each of his first three games this season, but he saw that total slashed in half when Doug Baldwin (knee) returned from two-week absence. However, all three of Marshall's targets came within Arizona's 26-yard line, showing he still has high-risk, high-reward potential.

Sep 30, 2018 4:48 PM EST

Captures two passes Sunday

Marshall hauled in two of six targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 24-13 win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Marshall is getting consistent enough volume -- 18 targets spread evenly with six per game -- to remain fantasy relevant, but he's only caught nine of those passes. The 34-year-old will look to turn that around with a Week 4 matchup against a struggling Cardinals team that has allowed 261 passing yards per game. Marshall is no more than a flex option, and his value teeters on when Doug Baldwin (knee) returns.

Sep 24, 2018 6:10 PM EST

Snags four passes Monday

Marshall caught four passes on six targets for 44 yards during Monday's 24-17 loss to the Bears.

Analysis: Marshall was a hot waiver wire pickup after Doug Baldwin went down, and he proved why with the second-most targets on the team in Week 2. It was a dismal showing for fantasy owners that chose to start him. Marshall will shift his focus to a Week 3 matchup against the Cowboys, who have allowed just one passing touchdown over the first two weeks.

Sep 17, 2018 8:52 PM EST

Ready for expanded role

Marshall could take on an expanded role with Doug Baldwin (knee) in danger of missing multiple games,'s Brady Henderson reports.

Analysis: Seattle appeared to split Baldwin's usual workload between multiple players in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Broncos, with Marshall finishing second among the team's wideouts at 37 snaps (65 percent). Tyler Lockett comfortably led the way at 98 percent, but Jaron Brown (58 percent) and David Moore (28 percent) also got involved. Marshall could push above the 70-percent threshold Monday in Chicago, after catching three of six targets for 46 yards and a TD in the opener.

Sep 12, 2018 11:17 AM EST

Scores in first game with Seattle

Marshall made three catches for 46 yards and one touchdown on six targets during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: Many doubted if a 34-year-old wideout coming off season-ending surgery would even make the Seahawks' roster, but Marshall proved why they kept a spot for him. Marshall was able to create separation in the third quarter and allow quarterback Russell Wilson to drop a dime to him in the end zone. He could see additional targets in Week 2 against the Bears if Doug Baldwin can't shake his knee injury.

Sep 9, 2018 4:54 PM EST

Survives cutdown day

Marshall has a spot on Seattle's initial 53-man roster, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Analysis: Marshall was slow to bounce back from last year's severe ankle injury, as he also had a procedure on his toe and then hurt his hamstring this summer. He got healthy in time to make a late roster push, highlighted by a three-catch outing in the third week of the preseason. The 33-year-old could push Jaron Brown for Seattle's No. 3 receiver job, with potential to be a major factor in the red zone right away.
