Dynasty League Thoughts Part Two

Here’s a follow-up to my list from September which you can find in an earlier post:

Quarterbacks

Chad Henne/Miami – I’m only putting players on this list that are under the radar a bit (that’s why Matt Ryan and Donnie Avery aren’t on here). Henne may not start until 2010 but he has a strong arm and fits the profile of what they want in a QB.

Kevin Kolb/Philadelphia – They still are really high on him and he will eventually be the starter in a high-powered passing game.

Running Back

Tim Hightower/Arizona – We’ve been talking about him since early May and look for him to be their starter next year.

Ryan Torain/Denver – I wrote for Fantasyguru.com magazine that he had a chance to start as a rookie and had he not gotten hurt, that might have happened. Get him now because he has the best chance to start in 2009 and beyond of all their backs.

Kolby Smith/Kansas City – There’s a decent chacne that Larry Johnson is cut after the season so Smith would be next in line to start unless they drafted a back or signed one to replace him.

Derrick Ward/New York Giants – He’ll be a UFA next year and could find a starting [...]

Week Eight Reaches

Some decent ones this week…

Quarterback

Jeff Garcia at Dallas-You know how shaky the Dallas secondary is so Garcia should be able to build off of last week’s game.

Jason Campbell at Detroit- If he can’t throw for at least two TDs and over 200 yards, I give up.

Matt Cassel vs. St. Louis – He faces an average secondary and they may have to throw more because of the injuries at RB.

David Garrard vs. Cleveland – He’ll face a beatable Brown secondary.

Ryan Fitzpatrick at Houston – The Texans have one of the worst pass defenses in the league and the former Harvard QB could be a big surprise this week.

J.T. O’Sullivan vs. Seattle – We know he’s been struggling but so has the Seahawk secondary.

Running Back

Kevin Faulk vs. St. Louis – He’s the only veteran they have left that’s healthy so Faulk should get a decent amount of touches in this game.

Fred Taylor vs. Cleveland – He’s been quiet so far but the Brown run defense is weak and they’re banged up on their front-three.

Ahman Green vs. Cincinnati – He’s looked great of late and the Bengal run defense is bad. Green makes for a nice flex option this week.

LenDale White vs. Indianapolis [...]

Week Seven Reaches

There are 15 that I see that are standing out:

Quarterback

Trent Edwards vs. San Diego – There figures to be a decent amount of points in this game and Edwards could be throwing more than expected against an average Charger secondary.

Kyle Orton vs. Minnesota – He’s on a roll and the Viking secondary is beatable.

Jake Delhomme vs. New Orleans – This should be a high-scoring game so Dehomme figures to throw for at least two TDs/250 yards.

Running Back

Mewelde Moore at Cincinnati – He should get plenty of touches to prove to be a solid #3 RB.

LenDale White at Kansas City – This figures to be a blowout so White should get plenty of carries.

Jonathan Stewart vs. New Orleans – They’ll try to establish the run early so the powerful Stewart figures to have a decent chance to put up numbers in what should be a high-scoring game.

Wide Receiver

Malcom Floyd at Buffalo – You saw what he did last week and he’ll get a chance to do it against a Bill secondary who will be without their best CB.

Devin Hester vs. Minnesota – He’s on a miniroll and he’ll get matched up with struggling CB Cedric Griffin some today.

Muhsin Muhammad vs. New Orleans – While [...]

Week Six Reaches

Quarterback
Chad Pennington at Houston – I have to think they’ll be throwing a lot more than they want since the Texans can move the ball pretty well. I’m actually starting Pennington in one league.

Gus Frerotte vs. Detroit – If you’re in desperate shape, he could come through against a brutal secondary which made Kyle Orton look pretty good last week.

Kyle Orton at Atlanta – That’s two good weeks in a row and he faces a shaky secondary this week.

Running Back
Le’Ron McClain at Indianapolis – The Ravens plan is easy, run the ball all day. So McClain could do well again.

Chester Taylor vs. Detroit – If the game is a blowout, Taylor could do well as your flex player.

Wide Receiver

Bernard Berrian vs. Detroit – Assuming he’s playing, he’ll face a terrible Lion secondary which made the Bear WRs look good last week.

Anthony Gonzalez vs. Baltimore – He practiced all week so he should play. If he can go, that’s significant since the Ravens will be using one of their dime CBs as a starter and the other one will be on Gonzalez.

Kevin Walter vs. Miami – The Dolphin secondary is one of the worst in the league and Walter should [...]

Week Five Blog

Hopefully I’ll have similar success like I’ve had in previous week with these reaches:
 
Quarterback
 
Jon Kitna – As long as you don’t lose more than a point for INTs, Kitna could do well against the overrated Bear secondary. 
 
Matt Schaub – You can say he’s a reach since he was selected late in drafts. But we expect him to have much success against a suspect Colt defense.
 
Gus Frerotte – He faces a very shaky secondary and plays are there to be made in the passing game.
 
Running Back
 
Tim Hightower – He scores every week so why not against an average run defense. 
 
 Wide Receiver
 
Devin Hester – With Brandon Lloyd out, someone has to make a play or two against the weak Lion secondary. 
 
Reggie Brown – If Shawn Springs is inactive, Brown will wind up getting a good matchup so he could do surprisingly well.
 
Kevin Walter – Not sure if he’s even a reach anymore but he faces a beatable secondary with out Bob Sanders and we’re expecting a lot of points to be scored in this game.
 
Anthony Gonzalez – The Texan secondary is the worst in the NFL from a personnel standpoint. 
 
Lance Moore – We’ll go to the well one more time this week [...]

    I have been working on a massive Post Free Agency Stock Watch, which is aimed at putting all the activity into perspective and conveying to readers how free agency has changed the fantasy landscape for 2014. I use the word “massive” a lot because it describes most of the articles we do. I really want to continue to try to scale back our word counts because I […]

  • Just missed it: Week 14 December 12, 2013
    I have been a little behind lately spending more time on more important things, and I missed two weeks ago also due to the holiday, but here are raw notes showing all if not most of Week 14’s “Just missed it” plays. If you’re looking for perfect grammar and punctuation, don’t read this. WR Mike Brown drops a TD pass on opening drive of game. Maurice Jones-Dr […]

    Here is another batch of just missed it type plays from Week 11. These are raw notes, so they were not edited for quality control. Brandon Pettigrew lets one of his fingertips for a potential TD over the middle, continues to have suspect hands Heath Miller dropped one in end zone going to ground Bell tackled inside the 1-yard line on pass from Big Ben Big Be […]
