2015 Week 4 vs MIA (11 / 7 / 128 / 0 rec)
Another week, another big statistical performance from Marshall. Marshall set the tone early by making a 57-yard catch on New York's first play, toasting Brent Grimes on a deep sideline route. Entering the game, Miami did not have the personnel to match-up against Marshall and things got worse once Grimes left with a knee injury in the first quarter. Marshall recorded 107 of his receiving yards during the first half, running a variety of slants, crossing routes, and deep dig routes to keep separation and win one-on-one matchups against smaller corners. Marshall did drop one of his end zone targets during the first half, but it did not have an impact on the outcome of the game.
2015 Week 3 vs PHI (14 / 10 / 109 / 1 rec)
Without Eric Decker and Chris Ivory in the fold, Marshall was blanketed by multiple defenders on every play. Philadelphia kept Marshall in check for nearly two quarters before he scored on a 16-yard touchdown grab with seconds remaining before halftime. Marshall ran a post route and made a nice adjustment to catch a relatively underthrown pass. His touchdown catch somewhat made amends for arguably the dumbest play of the 2015 season. Midway through the second quarter, Marshall attempted to lateral a short gain to Jeff Cumberland, but ultimately fumbled the ball away. Marshall was attempting to jumpstart the offense, but this miscue killed the offense's momentum and Philadelphia's offense turned his miscue into seven points. Due to game flow, Marshall made his bones in the second half by working the seam and running underneath routes to get easy catch and run opportunities. These plays bolstered Marshall's stat line, but did not help New York get back into the game. Late in the fourth quarter, New York was mounting a late comeback, but he misjudged a pass that was tipped and intercepted by Walter Thurmond. While fantasy owners are happy with Marshall's performance, two dumb mistakes paved the way for New York's first loss of the 2015 season.
2015 Week 2 vs IND (10 / 7 / 101 / 1 rec)
The Jets two top receivers took advantage of the injuries the Colts had at cornerback in this game. Former teammate of Marshalls, Vontae Davis, spent the majority of the game covering him until he went down with a concussion. Marshall would finish the game with 7 receptions, for 101 yards and a touchdown. He collected 55 yards after the catch in this game including a 42-yard gain when the Jets zone coverage dropped down to the flat. Fitzpatrick and Marshall did a good job isolating against these inferior talents all night as Marshall also drew multiple holding penalties. After the Vontae Davis injury the Jets put together its best drive, immediately hitting Marshall on a crossing route. In the second half Fitzpatrick off of a boot connects with Marshal for a 16-yard gain on a comeback route to the right. On the touchdown, Fitzpatrick hit Marshall with a nice back shoulder throw where he is able to keep his feet pumping and power through three defenders to make it to the pylon. This would push the lead back to 10 points with just 6:20 left in the fourth quarter.
2015 Week 1 vs CLE (9 / 6 / 62 / 1 rec)
Marshall was targeted a team-high nine times as he took advantage of an obvious mismatch against Joe Haden. Marshall, who primarily played in the slot as a member of the Chicago Bears, lined up outside and was targeted on screens, crossing routes, and in the red zone. Marshall scored in the third-quarter on an easy 1-yard pitch and catch. Marshall was matched up against Haden in single coverage and easily beat him to the score. Marshall bailed Fitzpatrick out after a costly third quarter interception by stripping the ball away from the defender. Marshall's physical, dominant presence was a welcomed addition for a Jet offense that hasn't a true top receiver in years.

link to story Jets | Brandon Marshall fitting in (Thu Oct 1, 09:32 PM) - New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall has been 'wonderful' to work with, offensive coordinator Chan Gailey said Thursday, Oct. 1. 'He's a pro,' Gailey said. 'He understands about how to go about working on the practice field. He has good ideas, but he's not hard-headed. He listens to all the things that are going on. He just has a healthy respect for the game and where he is in his career and what he wants to accomplish.' Our View: Gailey seems to be responding to complaints about Marshall that have followed him through his many snaps over his 10 years in the NFL. Right now fantasy owners aren't complaining either, as Marshall has been a PPR monster and the clear #1 receiver on the Jets.
