2014 Outlook: Deep-league Only

Last updated on Aug-18-2014 by Rob Warner

UPDATE: On August 16th, the Bears signed the former Jet. The 30-year-old has played in just 15 games over the past two seasons but could have a legit shot to secure the #3 WR job with Marquess Wilson injury keeping him out for at least the first half of the season. He has scored just two touchdowns over the past two seasons with the Jets and last had fantasy relevance in 2011 (51 catches for 654 yards and eight touchdowns). Barring an injury to Marshall or Jeffery, Holmes won't be on the re-draft radar.

Latest Update

Sep-21-14 Bears WRs Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Jets WR Eric Decker questionable for Monday night

Bears WRs Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) as well as Jets WR Eric Decker (hamstring) are all listed as questionable for Monday night. Marshall and Jeffery were both game-time decisions in Week 2 and both played on Sunday night. Marshall got his first practice of this week in on Saturday and was limited. Jeffery was a limited participant in practice all week. Decker didn't practice until Saturday either and was also limited. The two Bears wideouts are expected to play while Decker is considered a game-time decision.

Fantasy Analysis:

This is a big-time game for fantasy as Marshall and Jeffery are both projected as strong WR1 options this week against a Jets defense that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to WRs so far in 2014. Decker is proving to be the Jets' top option in the passing game and figures to be extremely active against a Bears secondary that will be without Charles Tillman after he suffered a season-ending torn triceps for the second consecutive season.

It's always a risky proposition to start a player who's questionable for a Monday Night Football game. In situations like this, it simply boils down to what your options are. You never want to take a zero, but if the guy you'd be plugging in for a Sunday game is only projected to catch three balls for 24 yards, then why not hold out for the stud WR and hope he goes. Many fantasy players probably benched Brandon Marshall last week and are probably still not over his three-touchdown game. The best-case scenario is that you have one of the backups that would get the nod in this game, but if you don't have Santonio Holmes or Jeremy Kerley, then you don't have that luxury.
