You know, I never really doubted Brandon Marshall. Going into Week 2 against San Diego, I expected him to make his presence known but not blow it up like he did. Some analysts are already proclaiming him the wide receiver to beat this year for the top fantasy spot. I am not too far off from saying the same.
Brandon Marshall ended the night with 18 receptions for 166 yards and a score which broke the Broncos’ record for receptions in a single game and got dangerously close to Terrell Owens’ NFL record of 20 receptions. “Baby T.O.” is on his way up the charts.
That dominant performance against a tough San Diego defense takes home a “Dude…” award this week. For kicks and since the game tape doesn’t focus in just on Marshall’s supreme play, here is another video of Marshall.
Who can resist a highlight reel set to Foo Fighters?
As you noticed in Week 1, throughout the season, we’ll be handing out “Dude…” awards to the players that left us speechless in fantasy football this weekend. Not all the biggest performers will take one home — we expect you to have three touchdowns, Tony Romo — but the guys that surprise or impress beyond their potential will be handsomely rewarded.
After all, while an NFL career can be short, articles last a lifetime.
If you don’t understand our use of “dude,” well, I guess the land of commercials might help us explain the meaning here.
