Daily Dynasty Update – March 28th

  • The Dolphins signed running back Knowshon Moreno, who immediately steps in as the starter. It’s not an ideal situation in Miami for any running back and one you should probably steer clear in 2014.
  • The Titans signed outside linebacker Shaun Phillips to rush the passer in Tennessee. Phillips is not a long-term dynasty solution but has product almost 20 sacks over the last two years.
  • The Eagles signed quarterback Mark Sanchez to back up incumbent Nick Foles. The move doesn’t do anything for Sanchez’s dynasty value but does question Matt Barkley’s. It’s not time to give up on Barkley yet but coach Chip Kelly is certainly not making it easy.

Daily Dynasty Update – March 21st

  • Confirming what was widely expected, the Lions intend to use running back Joique Bell more this season, as opposed to Reggie Bush. Bell is, arguably, the better runner while Bush offers more in the passing game. Both of their dynasty values will be limited unless the other gets injured and shouldn’t be projected as anything more than RB3.
  • Chargers general manager Tom Telesco re-affirmed Ryan Mathews as their workhorse running back. Mathews finally cashed in on his dynasty potential last year and is one of the few full-time running backs left in fantasy football. He’s an ideal RB2 in dynasty leagues for 2014 and beyond.
  • The Texans signed quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. This indicates two things: 1) the Texans are likely taking a quarterback with the first overall pick (as opposed to signing a better, win-now option like Mike Vick) and 2) Fitzpatrick should see some playing time early on in the season. If you end up with the Texans quarterback of the future, be sure to snap Fitzpatrick in your dynasty leagues. It also means the end of the Matt Schaub-era in Houston.
  • In other backup quarterback news, Jason Campbell signed with the Bengals to back up Andy Dalton. There were calls at the end of last season for the Bengals to do something about Dalton and signing Campbell won’t change that. Campbell is one of the better back ups in the league and is surrounded by talent in Cincinnati. It’s a serious question if Dalton is their long-term plan at quarterback or not.
  • The Panthers recently signed Jerricho Cotchery to be their top receiving option. You have to assume the Panthers have a plan at receiver after missing on every option before Cotchery while cutting veteran Steve Smith. Luckily, there are a ton of receivers in this years draft.

Updated Dynasty Tight End Rankings – March 2014, 2.0

mcdonaldClick here for complete dynasty tight end rankings, now with Rotoworld rankings included. 

  • Top six remains the same with Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Julius Thomas, Jordan Cameron, Vernon Davis and Jordan Reed at the top.
  • Big risers this update include Vance McDonald of the 49ers. Vernon Davis is now 30 years old and McDonald is the current candidate to replace him; same goes for McDonald’s Rice teammate Luke Willson in Seattle, playing behind now-28-year-old Zach Miller; the last big riser is Atlanta’s Levine Toilolo. With Tony Gonzalez’ retirement (almost) official, Toilolo steps in as the starter in a high-powered offense.
  • The big drops this update include the previously mentioned Miller; the Eagles Brent Celek, 29, who will be giving more snaps to Zach Ertz; the other big drop includes Jacksonville’s Marcedes Lewis, who could be a decent buy-low candidate if Jacksonville draft’s a quarterback in May.
  • The new entries to the rankings include Houston’s Ryan Griffin, who immediately looks appealing thanks to Owen Daniels’ release; and the Giants Adrien Robinson who is currently the starter in New York thanks to Brandon Myers signing in Tampa.
