Daily Dynasty Update – August 11th

Daily Dynasty Update – March 8th

  • casselThe Vikings re-signed quarterback Matt Cassel to a two-year deal, insuring him as a bridge quarterback. Not long ago, it seemed like none of the top QB prospects would be there at eight when the Vikings picked but with recent chatter, it’s entirely possible that one of Manziel, Bortles, or Bridgewater will be there.
  • Dynasty owners of Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta should have their patience pay off as he’s expected to be back at 100% before the season starts. Pitta put up TE1 numbers the season before his hip injury and should have no problem repeating that success once he’s healthy.
  • Saints running back Khiry Robinson is expected to handle a much bigger load in 2014 and, possibly, beyond. With Darren Sproles out, Pierre Thomas on his way, and Mark Ingram only under contract for one more year, Robinson is the best dynasty play in the Saints backfield (at the moment). Those that plucked him last year should be vindicated this year.
  • The Jets re-signed tight end Jeff Cumberland, leaving him as the starter with Kellen Winslow moving on. Cumberland hasn’t flashed any TE1 potential and the New York offense certainly doesn’t indicate anything like that happening. But he is a starter and could be a decent reserve in dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 12 – Saints edge Falcons, 17-13

  • Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a good day, going 23 of 33 for 278 yards and two touchdowns with an 8+ YPA. Brees is a top three dynasty quarterback, regardless of age.
  • Saints running back Pierre Thomas had a great day in place of Darren Sproles. Rushing for 73 yards on just 10 carries he added 57 yards on five receptions. This just shows how valuable a primary running back in New Orleans could be.
  • Falcons receiver Harry Douglas continues to produce, drawing a team-high 11 targets for nine catches and 79 yards. It’s hard to say where Douglas fits in the 2014 Falcons plans but he’s making the most of his opportunity.
  • Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan was a beast with six tackles, 2.5 sacks, two tackles for a loss and even a pass defended. At 24, Jordan is a definitive DL1 in dynasty circles.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Saints slip by 49ers, 23-20

  • 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had another sub-par day, going 17 of 31 for 127 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Dynasty owners of Kap can’t wait for Michael Crabtree’s return. It might also be a good time to buy-low on Kaepernick for  trigger-happy owners.
  • Saints running back Pierre Thomas had another solid outing with 49 yards rushing on 11 carries to go along with five catches for 35 yards. Thomas is a product of the Saints offense and about as boom-or-bust as it gets. But he’s still valuable as long as he’s in New Orleans.
  • 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman had a big day with 15 tackles. Bowman continues to outplay other 49ers linebackers, including Patrick Willis, and should be a LB1 for many, many years.
