Daily Fantasy Stock Report: Jets Brandon Marshall will be on a ‘pitch count’ Saturday

Brandon Marshall is dealing with back, foot and knee issues, which will keep him on a snap count on Saturday night against the Dolphins. Byron Maxwell has been one of the league’s better corners lately and should find a way to mitigate the banged up receiver. It’s tough to bench a high draft pick, but with Bryce Petty at quarterback — not to mention his obsession with Robby Anderson — it’s time to sit Marshall. Tune in tomorrow for a list of available receivers to start over BMarsh for Week 15. In the meantime, check out our Week 15 PPR receiver rankings.

Coach Dan Quinn said Julio Jones participated in Thursday’s light walk-through session. The Falcons plan to have Jones “push it” on Friday and will clear him to play when Jones is “able to explode pain-free,” Quinn said.

It’s nice to see Julio Jones back on the field, as he practiced for the first time this week on Thursday. Even though he seems to be much healthier now, it’s still tough to see the Falcons risk their star wide receiver against the pitiful 49ers. If Jones sits this one out, Mohamed Sanu and Taylor Gabriel will be auto-plays in fantasy.

After surprisingly sitting out last week with a foot injury, Michael Thomas practiced on Thursday, after a limited practice on Wednesday. As of now, it looks like Thomas will be good to go against the tough Cardinals secondary, which will match him up with Patrick Peterson at times. He’s a borderline Wr3/ Flex play in that suddenly scuffling offense. Mark Ingram’s toe has been a reoccurring issue the past few weeks, which makes him a very risky RB2 bet. If you have a legit option behind him, roll him out over Ingram.

Quick Hits:

  • In a very surprising move, the Patriots claimed Michael Floyd off waivers. Not sure where he fits in right now with the emergence of Malcolm Mitchell and Chris Hogan, but it could revitalize his horrid contract year
  • Aaron Rodgers (calf) sat out of practice but he’ll be good for Sunday’s freezing game in Chicago
  • TY Hilton (back) sat out Thursday’s practice, but it looks like it’s a maintenance day
  • Melvin Gordon (hip) did not practice on Thursday but is hoping to play Week 16
  • Luke Kuechly (concussion) practiced in full and looks to play on Sunday
  • Chris Ivory (hamstring) practiced in a limited fashion on Thursday
  • Not too important, but Ty Montgomery is solely listed as a RB on NFL.com Fantasy
