Dynasty Impact: Fuller won’t have much of an impact in IDP leagues but will benefit the Bears defense as a whole especially new end Lamarr Houston. Fuller is a well-rounded corner that can help against the run or pass. Can also play special teams.

Daily Dynasty Update – March 27th
- The Packers are preparing to break out receiver Jarrett Boykin as a replacement to James Jones. He’ll be a hot dynasty commodity heading in to 2014.
- In a small upset, defensive end Jared Allen signed with the Bears. He’s nowhere near the top IDP lineman, as he was a few years ago, but should still be a probably double-digit sack candidate. The Bears also signed Lamarr Houston to draw most of the attention on the line which should free Allen up.
- Rams coach Jeff Fisher expects running back Zac Stacy to get 70% of the carries in St. Louis. That’s welcome news to Stacy dynasty owners and should make Stacy a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 option for a few years.
- Giants coach Tom Coughlin still has to solve his tight end question, leaving Adrien Robinson’s dynasty potential flapping in the wind. Look for New York to draft a tight end at some point.
- Coughlin also added he sees new running back Rashad Jennings as an every-down back. Jennings’ stock will never be higher and might be an asset to trade in dynasty leagues for win-now teams.
- In other workhorse back news, new Bucs coach Lovie Smith confirmed Doug Martin is his man. Martin will be in-line for RB1 running back duties in dynasty leagues this year.
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.
