Daily Dynasty Update – February 19th

  • Texans receiver Andre Johnson feels fine after a wrist injury and plans on playing a few more years. Normally, I would be against acquiring a 33-year old that’s not a quarterback but Johnson has shown, time and again, he can keep up as the years go on. While no longer a WR1, he’d be a fine WR2 for your dynasty team.
  • The Raiders could trade Terrelle Pryor before the 2014 season. While it doesn’t make a ton of sense, getting out of Oakland would greatly increase Pryor’s value. It’s clear he won’t get playing time in Oakland and could use a fresh start.
  • Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo should be good to go for OTA’s after back surgery. Romo is still an elite talent and is on the low-end of a Tier 1 quarterback list.
  • Retired tight end Tony Gonzalez recently took a job with CBS, effectively ending his career. I still wouldn’t be surprised if he latched on with a team later in the season but this most likely means Gonzalez is done.
  • Redskins tight end Jordan Reed is healed from an in-season concussion after a long recovery. While Reed is an elite talent and could eventually join the top five of dynasty tight ends, the concussion, and long recovery time, is a major concern. I would be hesitant to pull the trigger on a major deal with Reed in your dynasty league.

Updated Dynasty Quarterback Rankings – January 2014

Click here for our updated dynasty quarterback  rankings for January 2014 

  • No major changes in the first dozen. Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, and Andrew Luck still make up the top three.
  • The big riser continues to be Nick Foles who is now up to #13. Looking at the 12 ahead of him, it makes sense. Jay Cutler also moves up a bit thanks to his new contract which insures he’ll be surrounded by top-notch talent for a bit.
  • The drops continue for Eli Manning who will have a new offensive coordinator next year. Keep an eye out for that one. Terrelle Pryor also drops thanks to the likelihood that Oakland drafts a quarterback with their first pick.

Dynasty Recap – Week 17 – Broncos beat up Raiders, 34-14

  • Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was ridiculously good, going 25 of 28 for 266 yards and four touchdowns. Despite Manning’s age, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to trade or draft Manning for a chance to win it all in your league in the next year or two.
  • Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor had a decent day, going 21 of 38 yards for 207 yards and two touchdowns to go along with 49 yards rushing. It remains to be seen who sticks around next year but Pryor is still an intriguing prospect.
  • Broncos rookie running back Montee Ball continues to impress with 72 yards on 10 carries and, most important, no turnovers. Ball is someone to look at next year as possibly getting the starting job.
  • Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas capped his stellar 2013 season with six catches for 113 yards and two touchdowns. As long as Peyton is around, he’s a top five dynasty option at receiver.

Daily Dynasty Update – December 24th

  • Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor will start the last game of the season. Pryor will be playing for his job in 2014 as it’s expected that coach Dennis Allen won’t be back.
  • The Dolphins have under utilized the run this year causing the dynasty value of Lamar Miller to be a fraction of what it could be. If the Dolphins don’t make the playoffs, changes could be coming, any of which should be good for Miller.
  • The Vikings will start Matt Cassel in Week 17. It should be the swan song for all Minnesota quarterbacks as they desperately need a long-term solution. They’re expected to take one high in the 2014 draft.
  • Rams rookie receiver Stedman Bailey had his best game of the year, leading the team in targets, catches and yards. He also ran one in. He’ll be a hot commodity heading in to 2014.

Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Chiefs hold off Raiders, 24-7

  • Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor had his worst game of the year, going 18 of 34 for 216 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. In his defense, he was on the road playing a good defense. He should bounce back next game.
  • Raiders receiver Denarius Moore had another solid outing with five catches for 82 yards. He’s currently on pace for over 1,000 and continues to be Oakland’s only viable option in the passing game.
  • The Chiefs defense had an incredible game, fantasy-wise. The biggest contributor was linebacker Tamba Hali with 3.5 sacks, three tackles for a loss to go along with four tackles. Hali has 7.5 sacks on the season and has been a main piece of the very good Chiefs defense. At 29, his window is smaller than others but he could still be had on the cheap. 

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.
