Are We Somehow Forgetting About Brandon Marshall's Football Brilliance?

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall is a physical specimen. Standing 6'4" and weighing in at 230 pounds, Marshall is one of the game's top receivers. And at 30 years old, he's still in the prime of his career. But is he somehow being forgotten around the fantasy industry in place of young, shiny new receivers?
Now, Marshall is by no means completely forgotten around the industry. He's just having a relatively quiet offseason for such a high-profile player. According to Fantasy Football Calculator, Marshall is being taken at pick 2.03 as the fifth wide receiver off the board.
But are we forgetting about how safe he is as a receiver? He enters his ninth season in the NFL with seven straight seasons of 1,000 or more receiving yards. In fact, since 2007, Marshall's lowest reception total is 81 and his lowest number of targets is 141, both with Miami in 2011, who, quite frankly, didn't know how to use him properly. For career context, 2007 was Marshall's second season in the NFL.  READ MORE HERE
