Daily Dynasty Update – March 27th

Dynasty Recap – Week 8 – Raiders beat Steelers, 21-18

  • Steelers receiver Antonio Brown was one of the few standouts in an otherwise ugly fantasy game. He had nine catches for 82 yards on 11 targets and will continue to be a WR1 going forward.
  • Raiders rookie linebacker Sio Moore had two sacks on the day in easily his best game of the year. There was a lot of hype surrounding Moore heading in to dynasty drafts and he may finally be turning the corner.
  • Raiders defensive lineman Lamarr Houston had himself another sack giving him four on the year and matching last year’s total. Houston has the potential to be a low-end, but steady, DL2/3 in dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Raiders down Chargers, 27-17

  • Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers continued his fantasy renaissance with 411 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. By no means is Rivers a viable option long-term but he could be traded away for assets.
  • With Rivers’ resurgence, Charger receivers Keenan Allen and Vincent Brown are suddenly viable options. Both are young and talented and, as long as the opportunities are there, should continue to produce.
  • On the Raiders side, quarterback Terrelle Pryor had another solid outing. He completed 78% of his passes and threw for 221 yards. He’s completed 63% of his passes in each game this season and has rushed for 229 yards. He has five turnovers, which has hindered his fantasy and real-life value, but if he can control those, he should be a viable QB2 for many years to come.
  • Raiders defensive end Lamarr Houston had a sack to go along with seven tackles. Houston quietly has three sacks on the year and should easily set a career-high this season. At just 26, Houston could be a DL2/3 for many years to come in dynasty IDP leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 3 – Denver beats Oakland, 37-21

  • Peyton Manning did Peyton Manning things, throwing for 374 yards and three touchdowns all while going 32/37 on pass attempts. He’s one of those where age doesn’t matter in fantasy, he may win you a championship by himself.
  • The three-headed monster also known as Denver’s running game had carries of 12 (Knowshon Moreno), 11 (Montee Ball), and 9 (Ronnie Hillman). Hillman won this round with 66 yards. Ball wasn’t far behind at 61 but did have a late fumble. Ball is still the better dynasty prospect as they used the higher draft pick but nothing is certain there.
  • Oakland defensive end Lamarr Houston continues to be a bright spot with a sack and forced fumble. Houston is an underrated end that has some big play potential as one of the only talents on the Oakland defense and would make a fine DL2 on your dynasty fantasy team.
  • On the other hand, Oakland running back Darren McFadden had nine yards on 12 carries. He’s off the dynasty map until further notice.
