Dynasty League Prospects

The following are players to look at for the future who have yet to break
out, but have value for future seasons.

Quarterback

Kevin Kolb/Philadelphia – Next year, he’ll be on the final year of his four-year
rookie deal. But the coaches remain very high on him and they were very pleased
with what they saw from him in his two starts. In fact, a team source said
there’s no reason why Kolb can’t be one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL if he
gets to start next year. It will come down to how veteran QB Donovan McNabb
plays the rest of the season. If McNabb struggles and they miss the playoffs or
get knocked out early, Kolb will likely be the starter next year. He’s seen as a
more accurate passer than McNabb and with the frequency that they throw with,
Kolb could put up big numbers if he gets the job.

Chad Henne/Miami – Like with Kolb, I first saw Henne play during Senior Bowl
week and I was very impressed. In fact, I thought Henne threw the ball better
that week than Joe Flacco did. Henne has a strong arm and I like how he places
the ball away from the defender and on the correct shoulder for the [...]

Week Nine Reaches

Note: Players are in no particular order.

Quarterback

David Garrard vs. Kansas City – Yes, he’s been mostly a bum so far. However,
He’ll face a Chief defense which gives up about 260 yards/game and about 2 TDs.
The Chiefs are not deep in their secondary and are down to their third free
safety because of injury. All signs for Garrard to have a solid game for a
change.

Matt Hasselbeck vs. Detroit – The Seahawk offensive line is always a concern
because of injury, but they were decent last week against the Cowboys. The Lion
secondary is one of the worst in the NFL and Lion defense is giving up about 260
yards/game and almost 2.5 TDs. They’re starting two journeymen at cornerback, so
look for Hasselbeck to post good numbers in this matchup.

Running Back

Julius Jones vs. Detroit – He’s probably been in moth balls for most fantasy
owners for several weeks (see Kevin Walter), but this is the kind of matchup for
Jones in which he could do pretty well. Jones will face a struggling Lion front
seven and he should get a decent amount of carries in this game. Start him as
your #3 RB.

Jamaal Charles at Jacksonville – He’s expected to handle a majority of touches
in this game against a [...]

  • Week 4 story lines September 25, 2014
    Here are 66 stories to follow for Week 4 in the NFL N.Y. Giants (1-2) at Washington (1-2) Do the Giants come out throwing against a weak secondary, since it’s tough to run on the Redskins right now? I think they do, so I like Eli Manning, Victor Cruz, and I like Reuben Randle and Larry Donnell as sleepers. Eli will get 250 and 2 TDs tonight, one to Cruz and […]
