Daily Dynasty Update – April 10th

  • dtThere were reports earlier this week that Broncos receiver DeMaryius Thomas was still healing from a separate shoulder suffered in the Super Bowl. But, that apparently wasn’t true as he’s with Peyton Manning this week at Manning’s passing camp. Thomas is good to go as a top five dynasty receiver.
  • Expect the Bengals to run a lot more under new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. Any value quarterback Andy Dalton built up last season should dissipate while running back Gio Bernard is a huge breakout candidate and should be a RB1 in dynasty leagues in 2014.
  • Lions receiver Ryan Broyles is back in action after an injury his Achilles tendon last season. Broyles’ ceiling is as the Lions #2 receiver which could have some value in dynasty. However, until he proves he can stay on the field, Broyles can be off your radar.
  • A potentially big dynasty development in Denver where local writers expect backup quarterback Brock Osweiler to leave Denver before getting a shot at replacing Peyton Manning. The only reason Osweiler is on dynasty rankings is his location. Should that change, his dynasty value  is gone.

Daily Dynasty Update – April 9th

  • Houston Texans vs. Tennessee TitansTexans running back Arian Foster is good to go for 2014 after back surgery. With Ben Tate gone to Cleveland, and Foster sitting out a month, Foster should rebound to be a low-end RB1. Now, how long he remains there is to be determined.
  • Speaking of Texans running backs, Houston signed former Giants running back Andre Brown to back up Arian Foster. Brown is a decent backup option and should be one of the more valuable number two’s in the league.
  • In other injury news, Colts receiver Reggie Wayne should be good for 2014, too, after tearing his ACL. However, Wayne is 35 and is not as valuable in dynasty leagues unless you’re in win-now mode.
  • The Panthers signed receiver Jason Avant who, currently, is the number two receiver in Carolina. The Panthers will certainly draft one receiver and, possibly, more. Avant’s dynasty stock is only as good as position on the Panthers depth chart.

reed

  • Change to the top five this month with Redskins tight end Jordan Reed entering at number five. Reed’s stock is up thanks to new coach Jay Gruden’s pass-first mentality. The four before him include Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Julius Thomas, and Jordan Cameron.
  • Up this month is Cowboys tight end Gavin Escobar and Titans tight end Delanie Walker. Escobar should see more opportunities in Dallas with Jason Witten getting older. Delanie Walker is expected to see more targets in new coach Ken Whisenhunt’s offense. Walker is a decent buy-low candidate for 2014.
  • Lions tight end Joseph Fauria dropped a bit thanks to the Lions re-signing of fellow tight end Brandon Pettigrew. Fauria should pass Pettigrew on the depth chart sometime this season. The other drop is Tampa’s new tight end Brandon Myers. Myers had a terrible stint in New York and isn’t expected to do much better in Tampa. Even at 39 he’s not a recommended buy.

brees

  • Top five remains the same but slightly different order. Aaron Rodgers, Andrew Luck, and Cam Newton make up the top three. Drew Brees does drop a bit to five because of age and losing a few reliable weapons.
  • The only other noticeable drop was Tampa quarterback Mike Glennon thanks to the Josh McCown signing. It really doesn’t say a lot when you bring in a better quarterback for the second season of a young quarterback.
