Will he get to do anything more than block?

4. Will Marty B get more balls thrown his way with a depleted WR corps?

Martellus was barely noticeable last week in his return.  Much to my surprise, he was frequently used as a WR on the edge when they went to a 4 WR formation.  He was never targeted with a pass.  It seems that he was being used a placeholder more than a decoy (Deion was a decoy on offense because his presence forced the defense to worry; MB’s presence simply required the defense to assign a body to cover him).

I would like to see MB used more in the passing game, but Witten’s sub-par blocking in the first two games coupled with the need to utilize him as a receiver will likely necessitate MB being used primarily as a blocker.  My characterization of Witten’s blocking as poor is based mainly on the negative grades assigned by Pro Football Focus.
