Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Titans edge Rams, 28-21

  • Rams running back Zac Stacy is a man. He went off for 127 yards on 27 carries and two touchdowns and added six catches for 51 yards. Stacy is performing despite the lack of talent around him and strong opposing defenses. He’s on his way to being a RB1 in dynasty leagues.
  • On the other side of the field, Chris Johnson had 150 yards on 23 carries plus three catches for 20 yards. I can’t believe it’s the start of a trend upwards – Johnson has had many chances to be consistent and hasn’t done it.
  • Titans receiver Kendall Wright led the team in targets and catches but wont’ produce much being in a first-run offense.
  • Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis had a good day with nine tackles and a sack. Laurinaitis is on pace for over 100 tackles and continues to be underrated.

Daily Dynasty Update – October 19th

  • With the trade deadline getting closer, there are several players on the trade block including receiver Kenny Britt from Tennessee. No one quite knows what the Titans plans are yet but with Kendall Wright providing some stability, the need for Britt in Tennessee is less. His stock might improve if he were traded but that’s a big if.
  • Lions running back Theo Riddick will play more, if he’s available, due to the injury to Joique Bell. Neither are long-term solutions in your fantasy dynasty leagues but could be a throw-in to a trade down the road, especially to someone looking to handcuff Reggie Bush.
  • Dallas receiver Miles Austin sat again as the Cowboys hope rest will fix what’s wrong with Austin and his hamstrings. He had an O-fer last week and is the fourth best option in the Cowboys pecking order after Dez Bryant, Jason WItten, and even Terrence Williams. You’d be wise to trade Austin as fast as you can.
  • Chiefs tight end Anthony Fasano will most likely be playing this weekend. Rookie Travis Kelce was supposed to give Fasano a run for his money as the ‘move’ tight end but is out for the year. Fasano has value this year and maybe longer if Kelce continues to have issues next year.

Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Seahawks outlast Titans, 20-13

  • Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson had an ok fantasy day, going 23/31 for 257 yards and over 8.0 YPA. He also had 61 yards on the ground but failed to score. Wilson will be a fine QB2 for many years to come.
  • Titans receiver Kendall Wright had the most targets of any Tennessee receiver with eight and had five catches for 69 yards. Wright is making the most of his weak supporting cast and is a great buy-low candidate.
  • Seattle running back Christine Michael had no carries (again) but don’t be deterred in his future talent. For dynasty leaguers, Michael is the ultimate taxi squad candidate.
  • Meanwhile, Tennessee running back Chris Johnson had 33 yards on 12 carries for an abysmal 2.8 YPC. Salvage whatever value Johnson has left and get rid of him now.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Chiefs stay unbeaten over Titans 26-17

  • Running back Jamaal Charles continues to be the best running back in all of fantasy football. He even drew the most targets from noodle-arm Alex Smith. If he ever becomes available in your league, it doesn’t hurt to make an attempt at nabbing him.
  • Meanwhile, Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe continues to go to waste beyond as he heads down field. He’s not a viable option in any type of league.
  • With a complete lack of running game in Tennessee, look for the Titans receivers to get more looks. So far, it appears Kendall Wright will be the lead dog as he drew eight targets to go with six catches and 74 yards.
  • Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston had another sack to bring his season total to 8.5. He continues to be an IDP stud, especially in big play leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Titans dominate Jets, 38-13

  • Titans quarterback Jake Locker continued his impressive start to the season, completing 75% of his passes for 149 yards and three touchdowns. Locker did injure his hip in the game so it remains to be seen how much time, if any, he’ll miss. But he could be a stable QB2 for dynasty leaguers.
  • Jets running back Bilal Powell also continued his good season, averaging almost five yards a carry. The problem was the Jets got behind early so he only had 16 carries for the game. Powell has an impressive 4.4 YPC for the season and should continue to start. He probably won’t be the starter long-term, though, so his value may never be higher.
  • Jets tight end Kellen Winslow was Geno Smith’s favorite target with nine targets, six catches and 79 yards. It’s too bad Winslow is already 30 and has a sketchy injury history.
  • On the Tennessee side, there still doesn’t appear to be a clear-cut favorite in the receiving game. Nate Washington had nine targets while Kendall Wright had eight. Until one of those show some consistency or develops a rapport with Locker, neither one should be highly valued in dynasty circles.
  • Titans linebacker Zach Brown continues to have a good season with six more tackles, a sack and a tackle for a loss. At just 23, Brown should be a part of Titans defense for many years to come.

Week 3 Dynasty Recap – Titans escape Chargers, 20-17

  • Titans quarterback Jake Locker turned in a sneaky good performance with almost 300 yards and a touchdown. He completed over 60% of his passes and had 8.0+ YPA. Just 25, Locker may make a suitable QB2 for dynasty league owners or a trade chip with stock that will never be higher.
  • The Titans receivers took advantage of Locker’s big day with Kendall Wright hauling in 6/71 and Nate Washington grabbing 8/131. These two are also sell-high candidates.
  • Kenny Britt, meanwhile, was nowhere to be heard from. He caught zero passes on five targets.
  • On the Chargers side, Danny Woodhead is filling his role of a poor man’s Darren Sproles nicely with 31 yards rushing on top of seven catches for 55 yards. If you’re in a PPR dynasty league, Woodhead is a fine RB3. His name isn’t sexy so you may be able to get him on the cheap.
  • Unfortunately, it looks like the Philip Rivers show had to end sometime. Rivers was efficient, going 20 of 24 for 184 yards. However, the Chargers offense only ran 53 plays with San Diego splitting it down the middle between the pass and run. Rivers just isn’t a long-term option in dynasty fantasy circles.
