- Browns receiver Josh Gordon could be re-instated soon which is great for dynasty owners. His dynasty ranking should still be high.
- If you needed any more indication of Larry Fitzgerald’s diminishing role, just listen to the coach. Fitz is falling fast on dynasty rankings.
- Redskins tight end Niles Paul will be taking on a bigger role with Jordan Reed out with an injury. Paul is a converted receiver and could play a decent role in Jay Gruden’s more pass-friendly scheme.
- Ravens linebacker Arthur Brown played no snaps in week one and could be traded soon. Now could be a good time to swoop in for IDP dynasty leagues.

Daily Dynasty Update – July 17th
- Let the Jordan Matthews bandwagon keep moving along as they’re not comparing the Eagles receiver, physically, to Terrell Owens. Matthews appears to be about the 4th receiver off rookie dynasty boards and is looking like a great value.
- After some initial optimism, it looks like Washington wide receiver Pierre Garcon will actually man the Marvin Jones role in Jay Gruden’s offense while DeSean Jackson mans the A.J. Green role. It’s disconcerting for Garcon dynasty owners but great for Jackson owners. Stay tuned.
- As if we didn’t need more proof, expect Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson to get the ball a lot. Patterson has the makings of a WR1 in short order.
- Giants receiver Odell Beckham won’t be the starter yet as Rueben Randle will be the second receiver to start the season. Randle has never taken the reigns which means Beckham should see significant time early.
Daily Dynasty Update – February 8th
- Washington beat writers don’t expect Alfred Morris to lose any touches with new coach Jay Gruden. There was some concern as Gruden had a more balanced running attack in Cincinnati but there simply isn’t anyone close to Morris to challenge the starting job. Dynasty owners can rest easy for 2014.
- Tony Gonzalez ‘jokingly’ said he’d come back under certain circumstances. As we’ve said before, we won’t believe Gonzalez is gone until he files his papers. You’d be wise to trade a late round pick in your rookie draft for the right to stash Gonzalez for a stretch run.
- The Vikings are expected to bring in a young quarterback, per new offensive coordinator Norv Turner. The Vikings pick #8 so it’s anybody’s guess as to who would be available there.
- The Dolphins 2014 is off to a fantastic start with news that Ryan Tannehill’s job may be in danger. Tannehill was, by no means, a star but he also was the least of the Dolphins issues. Tannehill dynasty owners need to be cautious and have a backup plan in place.
- The Colts signed linebacker Henoc Muamba from the CFL and is expected to compete for a starting job. The Colts did well plucking Jerrell Freeman from the CFL so Muamba is one to watch.
- Bears rookie linebacker Khaseem Greene might be better suited for special teams next year. Greene just looked overpowered during the season. Dynasty owners take note.
Updated Dynasty Running Back Rankings – January 2014, 2.0
Click here for updated dynasty running back rankings.
- Nothing new at the top. LeSean McCoy and Jamaal Charles will be your consensus 1-2 dynasty running backs heading in to 2014.
- A slight drop for Alfred Morris from 11th to 13th, possibly due to concerns with new coach Jay Gruden’s offense. Morris is probably not an RB1 in dynasty leagues but is an ideal RB2.
- Other drops include Darren McFadden from 23rd to 26th. There’s a lot of uncertainty with McFadden heading in 2014 – injuries, free agency, etc. There’s also BenJarvus Green-Ellis from Cincinnati who will take an even bigger back seat to Giovani Bernard.
- The biggest riser (again) is Cardinals running back Andre Ellington from 31st to 23rd. Ellington could be a RB1 in dynasty leagues when (if) he takes the reins.
Daily Dynasty Update – January 10th
- 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.
Daily Dynasty Update – January 6th
- Add one more coach that won’t make it to 2014 in Mike Munchak. His refusal to clean house among the coaching staff, while admirable, cost him his job in the end. For dynasty owners, this will be a positive step as there’s little to be excited about with the current Titans makeup (Kendall Wright, aside).
- Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland looks like he’ll get one more year in Miami. For dynasty owners, it’s safe to avoid Miami players for the next year until a new GM is hired.
- The Lions looks to hire an offensive-minded coach, whether its Ken Whisenhunt or Jay Gruden. Either one would inherit a stacked offense that could benefit even more.
