Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Titans take down Chiefs, 26-10

  • Somehow, Titans quarterback Jake Locker had 266 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.
  • In the running game, Shonn Greene was your lead back with 15 carries followed by Dexter McCluster with nine carries and rookie Bishop Sankey with six. Sankey is still ranked high but needs to start closing the gap to be a value in dynasty.
  • On the other side of the field, Jamaal Charles had only 19 yards on 7 carries with four catches for 15 yards. The Chiefs were behind most of the game and could explain his lack of production. Not time to worry yet.
  • On the IDP side, Eric Berry had a game-high 15 tackles to go along with a pass defended. He’s a DB1 in all dynasty formats.

Daily Dynasty Update – July 1st

Dynasty Impact – Tennessee Titans select Taylor Lewan

lewanDynasty Impact: This should be considered an incomplete as the Titans are almost certainly not going to go with Shonn Greene at running back. The same could be said at quarterback as Jake Locker doesn’t appear to be the long-term answer. Whoever they draft at both positions will benefit from Lewan who can pass protect and run block well. Won’t be an elite tackle a la Greg Robinson or Jake Matthews but should be a good tool.

Daily Dynasty Update – January 14th

  • Steelers receiver Markus Wheaton could triple his snaps if free agent Emmanuel Sanders doesn’t return. Wheaton was a decent rookie dynasty prospect heading in to 2013 but injuries and the Steelers conservative offense didn’t help. He’ll be one to monitor heading in to 2014.
  • Bills running back Fred Jackson thinks he has 3-4 more good years in him. Jackson surprisingly had more yards from scrimmage than C.J. Spiller this season and didn’t look like a 32-year old running back. Three years may be asking much but a year or two isn’t. If you’re needing to make a run with your dynasty team in 2014, Jackson could be a buy-low candidate.
  • While new Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt isn’t quite the quarterback whisperer that Bears coach Marc Trestman is, he’s still expected to improve Jake Locker’s game. I’m skeptical of a quarterback that’s had a few years to prove his worth and hasn’t. Locker has decent talent at receiver so he could be a decent QB2.

Dynasty Recap – Week 17 – Titans outlast Texans, 16-10

  • Titans running back Chris Johnson ran for 127 yards on 27 carries, for a 4.7 YPC, and a touchdown. While Johnson did run for 1,000 yards on the year, he’s still a low-end RB2 dynasty prospect (at best) and could even be playing somewhere else next year. A less run-conducive team would drop Johnson to RB3 status.
  • Titans receiver Kendall Wright had five catches for 50 yards to end 2013 with 90+ catches and 1,000 yards. It’s an impressive feat in Tennessee’s run-heavy offense in addition to poor quarterback play. Should the Titans move on from Jake Locker, Wright’s dynasty prospects will improve.
  • Texans end J.J. Watt had another sack and nine tackles to finish with 10.5 sacks and an impressive (for a lineman) 80 tackles. It wouldn’t hurt to inquire about Watt’s availability in your dynasty leagues to see if current Watt owners are ready to let go.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Colts at Titans

  • Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had a decent night, going 22 of 28 for 222 yard and a touchdown. Even if the 30-year old plays well down the stretch, it will be Jake Locker or bust for the Titans.
  • Colts running back Trent Richardson had another poor game, rushing for only 22 yards on eight carries. He did add 31 yards on five receptions. But if this is the type of game Richardson produces week-in and week-out, he’s a poor fantasy option and certainly not a RB1. He’s now entering buy-low territory if he keeps this kind of play up.
  • Colts tight end Colby Fleener had his best game of the year with eight receptions for 107 yards. Hopefully this is the beginning of good things with Fleener.
  • After not starting for the first half of the season, Titans linebacker Colin McCarthy has played well in the place of Moises Foku. He had 12 tackles in the game. He now has 38 in his last four games along with two tackles for a loss, one forced fumble and one interception.

Dynasty Recap – Week 10 – Jaguars edge Titans, 29-27

  • Titans quarterback Jake Locker was wholly ineffective before being injured. He was 4/9 for 24 yards and an interception.
  • Titans receiver Kendall Wright continues to be the leading receiver for the Titans with nine targets and seven catches for 78 yards.
  • Jaguars linebacker Geno Hayes had another solid outing with 11 tackles and a pass defended. He’s currently on pace for about 100 tackles and is under contract for another team-friendly year. Hayes could be a decent LB3/4 option in dynasty leagues if you’re lacking in tackles.
  • Titans defensive end Derrick Morgan had his best game of the year with six tackles, a sack and two tackles for a loss. He got to the quarterback regularly with three quarterback hits as well. Morgan has had a sub-par season after a promising pre-season which makes him a potential buy-low candidate.
