Hall of Fame Game: Dynasty Players to Watch

The annual Hall of Fame Game is tonight and that kicks off our beloved preseason schedule.  This year’s game will feature the Arizona Cardinals and the New Orleans Saints. Most casual fantasy football enthusiasts will simply watch the first quarter or so while the starters play a series or two with the hope to see a sustained drive or even a touchdown from one of their players.


Dynasty enthusiasts are going to be glued to the game for the duration as we look at many of the deep sleepers and young players we’ve had our eye on over the last few months. Here are some of the players we’re looking forward to seeing take the field tonight:

Adrian Arrington, WR NO

With Nick Toon out for the contest, this is a big chance for Arrington to make a big impression. He’s one of the more intriguing sleepers out there right now.

Mark Ingram, RB NO

It’s a little unclear as to if we’ll see Ingram in the game, but if we do, it would be really nice for him to look healthy and run with some authority.

Devery Henderson, WR NO

He may not get too much time on the field to make plays, but Arrington and Toon are nipping at his heels, so he’d be best served making a few of them.

Garrett Hartley, K NO

Yeah, I know, he’s a kicker. However, if he’s healthy and beats out John Kasay, he’ll be one of the better ones this season.

Chase Daniel, QB NO

He’s said to have made some serious strides over the past year or so. It would be great to see him get some extended time, though his thumb injury puts that into question.

Chris Ivory, RB NO

He’s said to be on the roster bubble, though we’re not sure how much we believe that. If he doesn’t perform well this preseason and does, in fact, get cut, it’s possible that Pierre Thomas could get a nice bump in value.

Joe Morgan, WR NO

It’s possible the Saints could keep Morgan, Arrington, Toon, Marques Colston and Lance Moore, leaving Henderson as the odd man out. Some solid preseason performances from Morgan would make this interesting.

Kevin Kolb, QB ARI

Here we go!  The battle against John Skelton starts tonight and Kolb could really use a solid performance in his limited time to silence some critics and thrown the first punch in what looks to be a major battle to be the signal caller in Arizona.

Ryan Lindley, QB ARI

Sure, we’re going to watch Kolb and Skelton closely, but Lindley is a major project who has major talent. If he can get his footwork figured out and throw a more accurate ball, he could be a nice sleeper in dynasty leagues.

Michael Floyd, WR ARI

This will be our first chance to get a good look at the Cardinals prize of the NFL Draft. It’s going to be great to see what kind of progress he’s actually made.

Andre Roberts, WR ARI

He’s a starter at the moment. Can he put together a solid preseason to keep it that way?

LaRon Byrd, WR ARI

OK, so this is really deep, but the Cardinals have liked what they’ve seen so far from Byrd. He’s probably more of a practice squad player, but let’s see what happens under the lights here.

Rob Housler, TE ARI

He’s been consistently one of the biggest sleepers around. Even Matt Williamson of ESPN mentioned him on our Podcast last week. Let’s see just how much progress he’s made.

While most novice fantasy football players will either miss the game entirely or just watch for a quarter or so, dynasty players are excited to see these players and many more perform for the first time as the preseason officially kicks off.

At DLF, we’re ready! Who are you looking forward to seeing tonight?

Even if I wasn’t in a dynasty league I would definitely watch the entire game. FOOTBALL IS BACK!!!!!!!

p.s. I’m really hoping to see something from Housler.

Also hoping to see something from Housler. I did see where Todd Heap took a pay cut to stay with the team which could actually be a good thing for Housler owners since Heap may be realizing that he is nearing the end and therefore may be more willing to give up some of those targets to a younger player.

Housler’s problem is that neither Kolb nor Skelton has the arm strength to hit him down the seam after he beats the defense.

Housler routinely gets open and the pass doesn’t come or the pass is so poorly thrown it is an INT or an incompletion. Bad QB play is going to kill his career.

I’m also looking forward to seeing Howling. Wells and Williams haven’t been poster boys of health.

Ryan Williams without a doubt. I heard some good things from camp but find it hard to believe he is fully recovered. He was mentioned but I assume he’s playing.

There’s a 0 in Henderson’s name.

Cadet has some moves. -3 rushing, but looks good catching passes and returning kicks. Course this is preseason.

Good thing I added Kolb off waivers last week. BUM. At least I know who my first drop for a kicker is.

I was happy to see M.Ingram look good. He didn’t play much or too long I should say, but when he got the ball, he ran hard and even scored a td while in with the first team. Ingram has a lot of haters on this site. Hope they were watching the game. lol.

Problem with Ingram is they use four rbs in new Orleans hard to love any of them but I would take spores out the bunch as they utilize him the most….saints Are a great running team but unless Thomas gets hurt(very possible Ingram is more like a low end rb2…..Thomas looked awesome as starter as well

I’ve got Sproles and Ingram on my team. Wasn’t looking for Ingram, but he kept falling in our draft and I think I got him in the 9th round. I don’t know if I’ll start him though… I’ll be sticking with Sproles and Richardson as my starters.
