Daily Dynasty Update – June 4th

  • fosterArian Foster is expected to handle all passing down duties in Houston, much like he did before. It’s an endorsement of Foster from new coach Bill O’ Brien and makes Foster an interesting buy-low candidate.
  • Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert is sitting out OTA’s with an injury. With this much time before the season starts, it shouldn’t be a concern but definitely something to monitor. However, with Hue Jackson now implementing a more rush-oriented offense and with Jermaine Gresham still around, Eifert’s dynasty value is not what it was a year ago.
  • Expect Tampa Bay to use multiple running backs even with Doug Martin returning from injury. It doesn’t mean he’s not a RB1 in dynasty leagues but definitely won’t challenge Jamaal Charles and LeSean McCoy for the top spot.

Dynasty Recap – Week 10 Recap – Ravens escape Bengals, 20-17 (OT)

  • Bengals running backĀ Giovani Bernard led the team in carries with 14 and had 58 rushing to go along with an incredible eight catches for 37 yards. Bernard will definitely be the most well-rounded offensive rookie before the year is out.
  • Bengals rookie tight end Tyler Eifert had 10 targets but only hauled in three of them, wasting a golden opportunity with Jermaine Gresham out. Eifert is still being worked in the offense so it may not be until 2014 that he pays dividends.
  • Ravens receiver Torrey Smith had similar issues with only five catches on 14 targets. It will continue to be difficult for Smith to rack up stats if there’s no one in Baltimore to take some of the pressure off.
  • Bengals linebacker Vincent Rey had 15 tackles, three sacks, three passes defended and an interception. An unbelievable day that may be the peak of Rey’s NFL career. Don’t expect Rey to assume the starter role in dynasty circle.s
