Terrace Marshall Jr. – Carolina Panthers WR

Finding the right rookie wide receiver late in the fantasy football draft process can make or break your chances. One only has to look at Justin Jefferson’s emergence for the Minnesota Vikings in 2020 to see how much this can benefit your team – with the wideout’s production no doubt winning many people their championships and bragging rights last season.

The Carolina Panthers have plenty of weapons in the passing game for new quarterback Sam Darnold to call upon. However, if Terrace Marshall Jr. can reach the sort of level expected, it could make all the difference to an organization that might end up being one of the biggest surprises next season if everything clicks into place.

Marshall may have played a secondary role at LSU to Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase, but he still managed 48 receptions for 731 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns from just seven games in his final college campaign.

The No. 59 overall selection has 23 scores over the last two years, which is down to his size and impressive ability to catch well under pressure in the red zone.

Offensive coordinator Joe Brady knows exactly how to maximize this exceptional skill set judging by their time together on the Tigers. So if you’re looking for a late-round wide receiver who might end up being a nice WR3 or FLEX option, then Marshall could be the guy.
