Jets WR Brandon Marshall (foot, knee, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 3. Marshall is more iffy than Eric Decker for Week 3, though the limited practice is encouraging. Quincy Enunwa is a Sneaky Start this week even if Marshall plays. If Marshall is out, we’ll be bumping both Decker and Enunwa up in the rankings. Unfortunately, the Jets play in the late round of games on Sunday. Enunwa (ribs) took full practice reps all week.

Week 3 at Kansas City
Brandon Marshall had a nice bounce back after a tough Week 1. The veteran receiver caught six passes for 101 yards last Thursday, but still is looking for his first touchdown of the season. It seems that QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is targeting all three wide receivers equally and sharing the wealth. Although eventually we think Marshall will have one of those monster games, the balanced receiving attack actually hurts the Jets No. 1 guy.
The Chiefs start the season as the worst team in the NFL in aFPA to wide receivers. But don't be fooled by that stat. KC has a pretty good defense especially at home. Marshall is not 100% healthy as his knee is still bothering him but he will play Sunday.
Start Marshall as solid WR2 for Week 3. The way Fitzpatrick is using all his wide receiver decreases Marshall's value a little so we will see if that changes in the upcoming weeks.
