Daily Dynasty Update – May 28th

Daily Dynasty Update – March 7th

Daily Dynasty Update – February 10th

  • More Green Bay tight end news as the Packers are inching closer to not resigning Jermichael Finley. Him and Andrew Quarless are free agents, leaving Brandon Bostick as next in line. Assuming the Packers don’t draft or sign a higher profile tight end, it’s Bostick’s job to lose.
  • Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee has yet to be cleared from his neck injury, another troubling sign for the promising linebacker. It’s getting to the point where Lee just gets injured way too much to be reliable. His value could be viewed as either good or bad, depending on your dynasty league.
  • Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is expected to get a ton of playing time next year and is a better receiver than any other tight end on  the current roster. Kelce could be a buy-low candidate with the group of tight ends entering the 2014 NFL draft.

Dynasty Recap – Week 8 – Lions slip past Cowboys 31-30

  • Calvin Johnson had a very good day.
  • Lions running back Reggie Bush had a good day as well with eight catches for 30 yards along with 92 yards rushing. He’s still a risky dynasty play since he manages to get hurt every other game.
  • Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle did nothing to stand out replacing DeMarco Murray. He managed just 26 yards on 14 carries. He added three catches for 18 yards.
  • Lions receiver Kris Durham led the Lions in targets (behind Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush) with four catches and 54 yards.
  • Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee had another stellar day with 10 tackles, two passes defended and two interceptions. He  remains a LB1 in dynasty leagues for many years to come.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Chargers down Cowboys, 30-21

  • Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray continues to be efficient with a 5.0 YPC but only got 14 carries. Now, he did get five catches, in addition to the 14  carries, but until Dallas consistently goes to Murray, he can’t be considered a RB1 in dynasty circles.
  • San Diego’s offensive continues to have a renaissance between Philip Rivers (400 yards, three touchdowns) and Antonio Gates (10 receptions for 136 yards and a touchdown). While you could ride both of them to championships this year, it would be advisable to trade them for something of value while you can.
  • Meanwhile, San Diego rookie receiver Keenan Allen had his best day as a pro with five catches for 80 yards.
  • On the other side of the field, Dallas rookie receiver Terrance Williams had his best day as well with seven catches on eight targets. He did have a costly fumble towards the end but Williams should be able to produce from the third receiver spot (see: Robinson, Laurent; Ogletree, Kevin).
  • Any doubt you may have had about Sean Lee’s status as a LB1 should be gone after his 18 tackle night. Lee is just a beast and, at 27, should be that way for a while.
