Dynasty Fantasy Football Rookie Terrace Marshall
Our thoughts on 2021 dynasty fantasy football rookie Terrace Marshall
Terrace Marshall, 6’2” 205 lbs. The first thing that jumps out on tape is how smooth he is. I mentioned on the podcast that he resembles Kenny Golladay in that way. To go along with his smooth style, Marshall accelerates well out of breaks. He has long arms and a big frame and uses them both to make catches at full extension. He’s also great at finishing the catch while fighting through contact. Terrace was a deep threat at LSU and had their 4 longest plays of 2020 (75, 54, 51, 51). To wrap up the positives on Marshall, he’s probably the best red-zone threat in this class with 23 career touchdown receptions. At one point, he scored at least one touchdown in 7 straight games, which tied an LSU record.
"...probably the best red zone threat in this class"
He’s got some burst, but it’s more long acceleration than short-area quickness, and he doesn’t mix up his tempo too often. Terrace had 5 drops in 2020, so he may need to concentrate at the catch point instead of thinking about his next move. Something that stuck out to Darryl that I would’ve otherwise missed is that he’s a fairly terrible blocker for his size, which could affect early playing time at the next level. Finally, we want to point out Marshall’s injuries: he broke his left fibula in high school, missing almost his entire senior season, and fractured his left foot as a sophomore resulting in 3 missed games.
Terrace had 2 years as a starter at LSU, and in his junior year, he scored 13 touchdowns. He didn’t have as many TDs in 2020, but he scored 10 in only 7 games. Marshall is great at pulling in off-target throws and could become a security blanket for Sam Darnold in Carolina. His versatility to move inside or outside will help get him on the field, but he may need an adjustment period to work on his route mechanics and tempo. He could see the field early as a field stretcher and red zone weapon that can go up and pluck the ball out of the air for the Panthers. From what we hear out of Carolina, he’s been a beast all offseason.
