Marshall was placed on the six-game injured list Friday with a knee injury, Lee Jones of CTV Regina

Marshall was originally ruled out for just 2-to-3 weeks upon initial diagnosis, but further testing has revealed that the knee injury is more serious than originally thought. With Marshall now out for the next six games, Kienan LaFrance will take over lead duties at running back for the Roughriders.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall (undisclosed) will be out at least 2-to-3 weeks, Ian Hamilton of the Roughriders' website reports.

The severity of Marshall's setback has still not been disclosed, but it will cost him several games and sideline him until some point later this month at the earliest. With Marshall out, Kienan LaFrance will take over as the Roughriders' primary ball carrier.

Marshall (undisclosed) won't play during Saturday's contest against the Blue Bombers, Lee Jones of CTV Regina reports.

As expected, the injury that caused Marshall to be pulled from Sunday's contest has rendered him unable to take the field for the Roughriders' next game. Kienan LaFrance, who was inserted into Sunday's affair following Marshall's injury, will draw the start Saturday against the Blue Bombers. He ran for 23 yards on eight carries while filling in for Marshall.

Marshall didn't practice Tuesday and isn't expected to take the field Saturday against the Blue Bombers, Taylor Shire of Global Regina reports.

Marshall suffered an undisclosed injury during the Roughriders' previous contest. While he was sidelined, Kienan LaFrance's number was called, and took eight carries for 23 yards. For now, expect LaFrance to draw the start for the Roughriders' next contest, though more news should come closer kickoff.

September 3, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall totaled 56 yards on six rushes in Sunday's 38-24 win over the Bombers.

The majority of Marshall's production consisted of a season-long 48-yard run, which he ripped off late in the second quarter to set up a Tyler Crapigna field goal. Marshall could have likely had a much bigger day had it not been for him seeing his second-lowest amount of carries on the season. He was also held catchless for the first time this season, but he will look to put together a more productive all-around effort in the Week 12 road matchup against the Bombers.

August 25, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall gained 44 yards on seven rushes while adding four receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 54-31 win over the Eskimos.

Marshall continues to look like one of the CFL's emerging stars, now having scored receiving touchdowns in two straight games and pushing his YPC average to an impressive 5.2 with Friday's production. The 25-year-old tailback doesn't always see double-digit touches in the running game, but his consistent role in the passing attack helps him to supplement his fantasy production week-to-week. He'll look to keep his strong rookie season going next week against the Blue Bombers.

August 13, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall rushed 12 times for 46 yards and a touchdown and added three receptions for 58 yards and another score in Sunday's 41-8 win over the Lions.

Marshall continues to impress when given sufficient opportunity, and he's displayed a penchant for making impactful gains through the air. The 25-year-old broke free for a 29-yard catch-and-run score in the second quarter that extended the Riders' lead to 28-0 at the time and served as his third reception of over 20 yards in the last four games. Marshall is also averaging an impressive 5.0 yards per rush, adding to his fantasy value. He'll look to continue delivering when the Riders take on the Eskimos in Week 10 following next week's bye.

August 5, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall gained 27 yards on six rushes and added three receptions for 35 yards in Saturday's 30-15 loss to the Lions.

The Riders fell behind by as much as 30-0, so the rushing attack was naturally rendered irrelevant fairly early in the game. That limited Marshall to a season-low six carries, although he once again made a positive impact through the air. Marshall's 26-yard catch-and-run on the first play of the second half pushed Kevin Glenn to sixth on the CFL's all-time passing yardage list, and he now has receptions of over 20 yards in two of the last three weeks. Despite the limited production Saturday, Marshall remains a modestly-priced DFS option each week that carries some solid upside. He'll look to bounce back in a Week 8 rematch against the Lions.

July 29, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall gained 110 yards on 18 carries and added eight yards on two receptions in Saturday's 38-27 win over the Argos.

While the air attack largely stole the show in the comeback victory, Marshall quietly kept the Argos defense honest with the best performance of his pro career. The Arizona State product set career highs in both carries and yardage, while his 6.1 yards per carry represented his best total in that category since Week 1. Given the trust and role that Marshall has earned in the high-powered Riders attack, he continues to be a highly appealing mid-priced DFS option each week. He'll look to put together a fitting encore against the Lions in Week 7.

July 22, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall gained 40 yards and scored a touchdown on nine rushes, hauled in five receptions for 43 yards and added 20 yards on his sole kickoff return in Saturday's 27-10 loss to the Stampeders.

Marshall broke the ice on the scoreboard for the Riders when he went in from five yards out in the third quarter for his first CFL touchdown. The 25-year-old has been a pleasant surprise in the early going, producing through both the ground and air. Marshall has no less than four receptions in each of his four games and has logged at least nine carries in three of those contests as well. He's clearly the lead back in what has largely been a high-powered offense, so he remains an appealing and modestly-priced DFS option each week for the time being.

July 8, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall gained 71 yards on 12 rushes and added 30 yards on four receptions in Saturday's 37-20 win over the Tigercats.

The Riders opted to stick with the 25-year-old as their starting tailback despite a mediocre Week 2 effort, and Marshall rewarded them with a productive all-around performance. The Arizona State product is averaging an impressive 5.5 yards per rush on his 30 carries over the first three weeks and has added another 73 yards on 12 receptions. Marshall compiled 3,258 yards from scrimmage over four college campaigns, so he certainly carries some upside through both the ground and air. Given his second impressive showing in the first three games, Marshall figures to continue helming the Riders' running game against the Stamps in Week 5 following a Week 4 bye.

July 1, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall gained just 11 yards on seven rushes and added 26 yards on four receptions in Saturday's 43-40 overtime loss to the Blue Bombers.

The CFL rookie had eclipsed 100 total yards in Week 1, but he couldn't come close to matching that performance Saturday. Marshall was stymied in his scarce rushing opportunities, and the flow of the contest largely eliminated the viability of the running game in the second half. Marshall did have a modest presence in the passing game, but if Kienan LaFrance (hamstring) is healthy enough to take the field against the Ti-Cats in Week 3, the former will almost assuredly find himself in a timeshare situation at a minimum.

June 30, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall will start at running back in Saturday's game against the Blue Bombers.

Marshall started in Week 1, and he will remain in the same spot this week with fellow running back Kienan LaFrance (hamstring) still sidelined. Marshall racked up 101 total yards in Week 1, and if he keeps finding success, he could remain the Roughriders' top running back even when LaFrance is ready to play.

June 22, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall carried the ball 11 times for 84 yards and caught four passes for 17 yards in Thursday's 17-16 loss to the Alouettes.

He took full advantage of Kienan LaFrance's hamstring injury, and Marshall put together a productive season opener even if he wasn't able to get into the end zone. LaFrance is expected back in action next week, but if he remains sidelined Marshall figures to put up very good numbers once again at home against the Blue Bombers.

June 21, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall will start at running back in Thursday's season opener against the Alouettes.

It was reported earlier in the week that Marshall was the favorite to start if fellow running back Kienan LaFrance (hamstring) was unable to go, and that will indeed be the case with LaFrance landing on the one-game injured list. LaFrance could return as soon as Week 2, but Marshall will get a chance to show what he can do out of the gate. Marshall did not play in the CFL last year, but he racked up 992 total yards over 18 games with the Blue Bombers in 2015.

June 18, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Marshall could be the Roughriders' starting running back in Week 1, according to the Regina Leader-Post.

Kienan LaFrance (hamstring) would likely start at running back if healthy, but his status for the season opener remains uncertain with him not seeing any preseason action. Head coach Chris Jones indicated that an international player would likely fill in if LaFrance is unable to go, and Marshall was the only non-Canadian running back to make the cut, making him the favorite to start if LaFrance is ruled out.
