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 16 storylines December 19, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 16 for fantasy. Philadelphia (9-5) at Washington (3-11) Robert Griffin III did play better last week, but does it mean anything? It’s hard to trust him even against a beatable secondary and a defense that lost a top pass rusher in Trent Cole. If you’re playing in Week 17, can you trust DeSean Jackson, […]

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following in Week 15 with some insight on some of them. Pittsburgh (8-5) at Atlanta (5-8) Will Julio Jones play? It’s obviously a huge key for Matt Ryan’s ability to hang with the Steelers in a high-scoring game. Without Jones, they have no explosiveness in the passing game and Ryan will have to dink-and-dunk to Roddy White a […]

  • Week 14 storylines December 6, 2014
    Here are all the storylines that I will be following in Week 14 along with some commentary and information on the matchups. Pittsburgh (7-5) at Cincinnati (8-3-1) Can Ben Roethlisberger play better against a solid secondary that has limited him to only 16.0 points a game against them in his last four games? Is Heath Miller someone we can actually trust in th […]
