Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Texans beat Raiders 30-14

  • Texans running back Arian Foster thrashed the Raiders for 138 yards. Foster has faced weak defenses the first two weeks but its encouraging. You can do worse than him for your RB2 in dynasty.
  • Raiders receiver James Jones had a big day with 112 yards on nine catches with 14 targets to lead the team in call categories. There’s not much dynasty value in a 30-year old receiver with Jones’ production but he could be a good win-now candidate in Oakland, especially with how much they’re expected to be behind this year.
  • On the other side of the field, Texans receiver Andre Johnson continues to defy the years with six catches and 74 yards on seven targets, leading the team in all categories. He should continue to be a WR2 in all dynasty formats.
  • Raiders safety Tyvon Branch continues to produce like a DB1 with 12 tackles in a losing effort. Still just 27, he’s a consensus DB1 in all dynasty formats.

Daily Dynasty Update – March 18th

  • The Raiders signed wide receiver James Jones to a three-year deal. He’ll immediately be at the top of the depth chart in Oakland but should still see a decrease in fantasy value. Unless the Raiders draft a quarterback in the first round, Jones doesn’t have a good chance to have dynasty value in 2014.
  • Quarterback Brandon Weeden signed with the Cowboys where he’ll back up Tony Romo. Even though he’s cemented his status as a backup, Weeden’s dynasty value might have actually increased. Tony Romo is coming off back surgery and the Dallas offense is never one to be shy.
  • The Packers are expected to re-sign running back James Starks to back up incumbent Eddie Lacy. Starks had a 5.5 YPC last year and should be considered one of the better compliment backs in dynasty leagues.

  • Broncos linebacker Von Miller had ACL surgery today and will be recovering for a while. It’s unknown whether he’ll be ready for the start of next season and is another disappointing development for the LB1. He could be a decent buy-low candidate.
  • With James Jones future in Green Bay in doubt, receiver Randall Cobb could move out of the slot to the outside. You have to assume that would sap some of his opportunities to make plays but it depends on the other personnel. Cobb is a WR2 only because of the crowded receiving corps in Green Bay.
  • Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III got a vote of confidence from new coach Jay Gruden. There goes the Cousins in DC theory.
  • Giants running back David Wilson will undergo neck surgery. Hopefully, Wilson can get healthy and back to being a productive running back. Meanwhile, it leaves Andre Brown as the front-runner for the Giants running back job in 2014.

Dynasty Recap – Week 16 – Steelers escape Packers, 38-31

  • Steelers rookie running back Le’Veon Bell had his breakout game on the ground with 124 yards on 26 carries and a touchdown. This is the game dynasty owners were waiting for and should bode well for 2014.
  • Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacalso had a good game with 84 yards on 15 carries with two touchdowns. Also viewed as a top rookie prospect before the year, Lacy has proved his worth.
  • Steelers receiver Antonio Brown continues his stellar season with six catches for 105 yards. He’s a low-end WR1 heading in to 2014.
  • Packers receiver James Jones had nine catches for 84 yards to lead the way for Green Bay. Jones is a free agent after this year and could play somewhere else next year. If so, his value drops significantly.
