Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso is moving to the outside in what appears to be a switch to a 4-3 defense in Buffalo. Alonso is a still a LB1 option in dynasty leagues but probably won’t have a chance to the be absolute best.
Another tight end re-signed in Andrew Quarless and the Packers. Quarless is, at the moment, the starter in Green Bay but is not known as a pass-catching tight end. Either way, he’ll be given the first crack at replacing Jermichael Finley.
More Green Bay tight end news as the Packers are inching closer to not resigning Jermichael Finley. Him and Andrew Quarless are free agents, leaving Brandon Bostick as next in line. Assuming the Packers don’t draft or sign a higher profile tight end, it’s Bostick’s job to lose.
Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee has yet to be cleared from his neck injury, another troubling sign for the promising linebacker. It’s getting to the point where Lee just gets injured way too much to be reliable. His value could be viewed as either good or bad, depending on your dynasty league.
Rams running back Daryl Richardson, widely expected to be the starter for 2013, was suffering from turf-toe the entire season which contributed to his lack of effectiveness. Despite his 3.1 YPC last year, the Rams will give Richardson another chance to prove his worth. No one is bumping incumbent Zac Stacy but Richardson could be a decent handcuff, if he recovers completely.
Falcons receiver Roddy White had his second straight positive performance with eight catches for 74 yards on 10 targets. With stories of White and the Falcons revising his deal to ensure he comes back, he’ll still be a decent WR3 for a few years.
Packers tight end Andrew Quarless had his best receiving day as a pro with six catches for 66 yards. Don’t expect anything more than that as Quarless is a free agent and athletically gifted Brandon Bostick is waiting in the wings.
Falcons rookie linebacker Paul Worrilow continued his impressive season with 12 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a tackles for a loss and a pass defended. By all accounts, Worrilow is the real deal who needs to be owned in dynasty leagues in 2014 and beyond.
