WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Byron Marshall | Redskins RB

Byron Marshall does not get a touch in Week 16.

Marshall received one target in the passing game, but he didn't get much playing time behind Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson in the Redskins' loss to the Titans. Marshall is not a recommended fantasy option to finish up the season next week versus Philadelphia.

Byron Marshall catches one pass in Week 15 win.

It went for 17 yards. Marshall isn't a recommended fantasy option behind Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson.

Byron Marshall gets two carries in Week 11.

Marshall gained five yards on his two attempts versus Houston. Despite being one of the Redskins' two players to get activated from injured reserve, Marshall's role isn't big enough to be a recommended fantasy option right now.

The Redskins placed Byron Marshall on injured reserve.

Marshall is dealing with the ankle injury suffered in the preseason, and the Redskins went ahead and placed him on IR, freeing up a roster spot. It's possible Marshall returns after eight weeks, but he's way off the fantasy radar for now.

Byron Marshall (ankle) is expected to miss two to four weeks, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

The MRI taken after last night's injury showed no serious damage to Marshall's leg, but he's still apparently dealing with a sprain that will keep him out some time. Injuries are hitting the Redskins backfield hard, but they remain deep at that position with Samaje Perine (who is also dealing with an ankle injury), Rob Kelley, and Kapri Bibbs.

Byron Marshall's MRI showed no serious damage to his leg.

Marshall left last night's preseason game with a lower leg injury, but it appears he's fine moving forward. He might miss some practice time, but Marshall should be ready to go for next week's third preseason game.

Bryon Marshall is being evaluated for a lower leg injury.

Marshall's night is probably done after two carries and one yard, but hopefully this injury isn't too serious. The Redskins should provide an update tonight or tomorrow.

Byron Marshall gets nine touches against the Cowboys.

Marshall again worked as the Redskins' primary passing back, and he flashed some really good ability as a reliable target for Kirk Cousins on underneath throws. Early in the game, Marshall nearly had a couple of third-down conversions while making a few Cowboys miss, but he came up just short of the marker. In the game, Marshall carried four times for 12 yards and added five receptions for 24 yards. He'll be a deep-league FLEX option for PPR leagues next week.

Byron Marshall gets five touches in Week 12.

Marshall, who was filling in as the primary passing-down back in the first game without Chris Thompson this season, had four carries for 18 yards and one reception for 12 yards in the Thanksgiving win over the Giants. There was a pass in the third quarter that was intended for him, but went off his hands and to Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins for a pick-six; however, it was an inaccurate throw by Kirk Cousins and shouldn't be put on Marshall. Marshall could deliver some PPR FLEX value, but there are probably better options out there in fantasy lineups.

Byron Marshall gets one carry in Week 11.

Marshall was playing in his first game with the Redskins after being swiped from the Eagles' practice squad during the week as a corresponding move with Rob Kelley being placed on Injured Reserve. He gained two yards on his lone carry, but he might be in line for a bigger role moving forward after Chris Thompson suffered a broken leg in the loss. In extremely deep leagues, he's worth a look as a very capable receiver out of the backfield.

Byron Marshall | Redskins RB

Byron Marshall rushed six times for 21 yards and one touchdown in Thursday night's preseason game.

He also caught two passes for 15 yards. Marshall was behind both Corey Clement and Donnel Pumphrey in the Eagles backfield, so his roster chances look very slim in a crowded room. Still just 23, Marshall has shown enough that he could be a practice squad candidate again, whether that's for the Eagles or someone else.

Byron Marshall makes NFL debut for the Eagles.

The undrafted rookie out of Oregon had nine carries for 22 yards and two catches for six yards against the Ravens. He worked ahead of Kenjon Barner, and got a good amount of work with 11 touches. Marshall has a good amount of talent, despite being undrafted. He's someone to keep an eye on heading into the offseason.
