Daily Dynasty Update – March 4th

bp

  • Tight end Garrett Graham is supposed to a be a hot commodity, especially between Houston and Green Bay. It’ll hurt the young tight end on that roster (either Houston’s Ryan Griffin or Green Bay’s Brandon Bostick) but will help the tight end on the team Graham leaves.
  • Brandon Pettigrew is expected to hit free agency after starting his career in Detroit. The Lions should be in the market for an upgrade as Pettigrew has been a big disappointment in his career. Whether it’s through the draft or free agency, the new Detroit tight end will be one to watch.
  • The Steelers hit linebacker Jason Worilds with the transition tag which means they can match any offer a team makes to the free agent. If he leaves, expect LaMarr Woodley to stay. If Worilds stays, expect Woodley to go.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Raiders down Texans, 28-23

  • Raiders rookie quarterback Matt McGloin went 18 of 32 for 197 yards and three touchdowns and no turnovers. If he keeps this up, the Raiders might also use their pick on something other than quarterback.
  • Meanwhile, the Texans pulled Case Keenum in the middle of the game for Matt Schaub. It was odd in that Keenum was only 13 of 24 for 170 yards with one touchdown and one interception. It’s not like Houston has anything play for this year so why not let Keenum continue to learn on the job?
  • Texans running back Ben Tate continued to impress with 88 yards on 19 carries to go along with to go along with four catches for 29 yards. Tate will continue to be the lead back this year and should be the feature back somewhere else next year.
  • Texans tight end Garrett Graham had a big day with 136 yards on seven catches on 13 targets and a touchdown. Dont’ count on Graham in dynasty leagues, however, as Owen Daniels is fully expected to get the job back next year.
  • Texans defensive end J.J. Watt had two more sacks to go along with five tackles. Watt now has 8.5 sacks on an otherwise disappointing (for him) season. Now might be a good time to buy (relatively) low.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Seattle escapes Houston, 23-20 (OT)

  • The Texans made a point to give it to Arian Foster who had 27 carries and six receptions. Backup running back Ben Tate had only seven carries and one catch.  Don’t be deterred – Tate will still get his. Now would be a perfect opportunity to pick him off for your dynasty team next year.
  • On the other side of the field, neither of Seattle’s young running backs saw the field a lot either. Robert Turbin had just three carries while Christine Michael had nothing. There doesn’t seem to be a consensus in Seattle as to who is the heir apparent to Marshawn Lynch. Be cautious with both.
  • No Seattle receiver has separated themselves as far as targets. Golden Tate and Sidney Rice each had five, while Doug Baldwin had four. That is a situation to avoid for now and later.
  • Houston Tight End Garrett Graham had five catches on six targets. While three years younger (27) than incumbent Owen Daniels (30), Graham won’t get nearly as many looks unless Matt Schaub attempts 49 passes every game.
  • Houston linebacker Whitney Mercilus busted out with 2.5 sacks. The 2012 first rounder started  the season as the starter and should be looked at on the waiver wire if you’re low on sacks.
