From a dynasty perspective, name a player who is unlikely to contribute this year but could be a monster later in his career. Why do you like him so much?
Matt Waldman: Keith Marshall. There was a time he was the brighter shining prospect than teammate Todd Gurley at Georgia. Pound-for-pound, he's one of the fastest players in the league and he's a solidly-built 220 pounds. Most people who know Marshall by name have made too much of his injury history. While an ACL tear is still serious, there's a big label about health on his public perception because he didn't return the following year and become the starter in Athens.
While true that Marshall suffered a injury two years ago that kept him off the field after initially returning from the ACL tear, it was a typical compensatory issue without long-term effects. Prior to that knee injury, Marshall never suffered a significant injury that cost him time. Once he was at full health, he was third on the depth chart behind Heisman candidate Nick Chubb--a player that Leonard Fournette correctly said out-played him in the SEC when they were freshmen--and Sony Michel, who former coach Mark Richt labeled as the best offensive player on the team.
It's not that Marshall was never as good as advertised, he was part of a stacked depth chart. Imagine if Frank Gore's career took place at a point where he was a little older than Edgerrin James, Clinton Portis, and Najeh Davenport and got injured as they emerged. These three backs shared time at the University of Miami's backfield, which is why Portis and James were initially underrated.
