In a TD heavy league last night I got Smith at 5.3. I landed Marshall as well in all 4 of my leagues. In fact I got he and Calvin Johnson for a total of $18(Marshall $11 and Calvin $7) in my auction keeper league ($200 cap). I'm pretty stoked about this year. If Andre Johnson and Marshall stay healthy (have them both in all 4 of my leagues), I'm in for a huge year.

I think days like Sunday are why this debate was so close...I'm in a PPR league in most of my major leagues and thats why I favored Marshall, 40 pts today, he was targeted early and often, 18 receptions, 166 yds, and 1 TD, and this was versus a great defense and Cromartie was embarrassed the entire afternoon...


Calvin's day, 6 receptions, 120 yds, 2 TD's, standard scoring he may of had the better day...I traded Megatron for Marshall and was sick after this game but both these guys look like they are going to have incredible seasons...Cutler is just amazing though, he has a cannon and wants to get the ball in Marshalls hands, Kitna is flat our garbage, but at least they will be behind in every single game and need to throw.


I don't think you can go wrong with either guy, had that Denver game went into OT like I thought it was Marshall was probably going to break TO's record for receptions.

i have marshall, but would love to have both :-D
tough to pick the better option at this point. I'd take Marshall b/c of his QB
