Marshall had 75 solo tackles, 31 assisted tackles, three sacks, and four passes defensed in 2017.
In what was a tough year for the Broncos offense, Marshall led Denver's top-five defense in tackles after an injury shortened 2016. It was the the third time in four seasons as a Denver starter than Marshall topped the century mark in tackles. The Nevada product should be valuable in providing some reliability in the middle of Denver's defense in 2018 as long-time partner Todd Davis faces free agency.
Marshall accrued seven tackles, one sack and one forced fumble Sunday against the Jets.
This was arguably Marshall's best outing of the season, and he's consistent enough to be a fantasy starter. The sixth-year pro played all 50 defensive snaps Sunday, and he has at least six tackles in all but two contests this season.
Marshall had seven tackles (six solo), one sack and one fumble recovery Sunday against the Eagles.
Marshall is on pace for 114 tackles this season, which would break his career high of 112 tackles from back in 2014. He'll have his hands full in Week 10 against a high-powered Patriots' offense, so he'll have an opportunity to continue to prove his worth.
A sore shoulder impacted Marshall's play over the past couple weeks, and head coach Vance Joseph had gone as far to say his middle linebacker wouldn't play this weekend if Marshall's ability to tackle is compromised in any way. However, since he didn't even draw a questionable tag for Sunday's game, it appears safe to assume that the Nevada product is at or near full strength and can safely be deployed in IDP formats.
