Poll: Will Brandon Marshall reach 100-yard mark in fifth straight game?

Things could not have gone much better for wide receiver Brandon Marshall in his first season with the New York Jets.

So far this season, Marshall has either exceeded 100 yards or scored a touchdown (or both) with a minimum of six receptions and nine targets in every game.

In standard-scoring formats, Marshall has scored at least 12 fantasy points in all five games and currently ranks 10th in total fantasy points among wide receivers despite already having his bye.

Marshall brings a four-game streak of 100-yard games into his Week 7 matchup against the Patriots, who are eight-point favorites this week. In other words, game flow could lead to plenty of opportunities in the passing game for Marshall (and Eric Decker).

The longest 100-yard streak in NFL history was eight games (Calvin Johnson, 2012). Marshall is tied with DeAndre Hopkins for the longest active streak of 100-yard games.

Several elite wide receivers -- A.J. Green, Randall Cobb, Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Alshon Jeffery -- are on bye this week so the position is much thinner than usual.

Despite his consistent level of high production, Marshall has yet to finish any better than WR12 in standard-scoring formats (or WR8 in PPR formats), but I have him ranked fifth among wideouts this week. (In addition, I have Decker ranked inside my top-15 fantasy wide receivers as well.)

Will Marshall extend his career-best streak of 100-yard games to five this week?
