After breaking out for over 200 yards receiving last week, Alshon Jeffery took a backseat to Brandon Marshall in Week 6 against the Giants. Jeffery finished with a single catch for 27 yards on five targets.
The opportunities were there for Jeffery to pad his stats a bit. He let one deep ball fall straight through his hands on a throw Jay Cutler couldn't have put in a better position.
Fantasy impact: Owners who expected solid numbers week after week were probably unrealistic. With Marshall upset over his workload, Cutler switched his focus back to his No. 1 receiver.
Jeffery is still going to be an active part of the passing game going forward. He may just be more of a boom-or-bust option depending on how defenses play him and Marshall. Look for impressive games out of both receivers next week against a poor Redskins secondary.
