- The Broncos have confirmed that receiver Eric Decker will hit the market which will significantly decrease his dynasty value, even if he signs on as a #1 receiver somewhere else.
- Texans running back Arian Foster is looking good coming off another surgery. Reports are he should be good to go for training camp, making him a potential buy-low candidate for those teams tired of his injury history. While not banking on Foster as a RB1, he’d be an ideal RB2.
- Packers coach Mike McCarthy is hopeful that tight end Jermichael Finley will be back. Ironically, Finley’s injury could increase his chances of coming back on a ‘prove it’ deal with Green Bay. It also decreases Brandon Bostick’s dynasty stock.
- Rams running back Isaiah Pead is nothing more than a special teamer according to GM Les Snead. His dynasty value is through.
- The Cardinals are hoping to retain linebacker Karlos Dansby which would be a boost for them and Dansby’s dynasty value. Dansby was a top five linebacker in most IDP leagues so anything that would allow him to repeat that success, like staying with the team in which he achieved it, would be ideal.
- In other linebacker news, Thomas Davis’ option has been picked up by the Panthers, insuring he’ll continue his comeback with Carolina. He filled up the stat sheet with 120-plus tackles, four sacks, and two interceptions. He still has LB1 productivity.
- Lions running back Mikel Leshoure will have a clean slate with new coach Jim Caldwell even if he ended up fourth on the depth chart at the end of the year behind Reggie Bush, Joique Bell, and Theo Riddick. Leshoure is a long shot to be a contributor this year but could be a decent taxi squad prospect.

Daily Dynasty Update – September 27th
Happy hour is only a few hours away. Oh, and the 49ers look normal again. Who knew running the ball was a recipe for success?
- Rams running back Isaiah Pead was a healthy scratch last night yet Zac Stacy didn’t have a single carry. Benny Cunningham ended up spelling Daryl Richardson. Apparently just because the Rams had three running backs in the beginning of the season doesn’t mean they had three worth taking in dynasty fantasy. Look for Cunningham on deeper waiver wires.
- Bucs (now) backup quarterback Josh Freeman would like a trade. I’d also like a million dollars but it won’t happen. Freeman’s cap number is way too big for a backup/middling starter. He’ll be in Tampa until the end of the season and will begin the path of a journeyman quarterback.
- The Jaguars have officially designated Denard Robinson as a wide receiver. Still won’t matter as Robinson has yet to break out and is on a bad team.
- Dallas rookie receiver Terrance Williams will get the start Sunday if Miles Austin can’t go. In that offense, the 2nd receiver will get more opportunities than most. Williams is also young and cheap which means he could be in Dallas for a while. He’d be worth a stash in deep dynasty leagues.
Week 3 Dynasty Recap – Cowboys dominate Rams, 31-7
- I think the Sam Bradford train is starting to lose some steam. He had a 5.0 YPC after 48 pass attempts. The lack of a running game doesn’t help.
- Isaiah Pead took over running back duties for an injured Daryl Richardson but didn’t exactly impress. He had a 3.3 YPC after St. Louis went down early but was a bright spot with seven catches. That may be his niche in that offense which isn’t a bad thing. He’s just not a workhorse.
- Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray had a huge day with 175 yards. Murray has a ton of talent and is young with the starting job locked up. The issue continues to be just how many rushes he gets. He could get 26 as he did this week or 12 like last week. Still a lot of upside however.
- Cowboys end DeMarcus Ware had two more sacks bringing his total to four this season. The switch to end has been very good for Ware and wouldn’t be a bad pickup for your DL2 in dynasty leagues. There’s not many players that are more reliable.
