Let’s face it, there’s an enormous amount of information out there on Sunday mornings. We’re not going to waste your time by repeating the news and notes about who’s in or out this week, since that’s really not what you visit us for. We’re also not going to do another article on starts or sits this week – we already have the personalized lineup advice for you on the premium content. Again, there are 100 places you can go for that, so no reason to repeat ourselves or others.
The Sunday Morning Huddle goes through each game and states what we’re looking to see from a dynasty perspective. One player will be picked from each team who has dynasty value tied to the game – players at a pivot point where their value could increase or decrease based on opportunity and performance.

My first player to watch this week is Delanie Walker. With an almost entirely new set of skill position players on offense for the Titans, Walker found himself in a different environment in week one, where he saw only five targets. In 2015, he averaged 8.3 targets per game. Heading into the season, everyone assumed Walker would maintain his volume and be the Titans target leader, but he garnered less than half of the looks Tajae Sharpe did. Look for a rebound in targets in a dream matchup – and if he doesn’t see more, it’s time to rethink his role.
The man I have my eyes on for week two is Theo Riddick. We expected a healthy number of targets providing an excellent PPR floor, but the increased rushing opportunities were a pleasant surprise for team #ZeroRB. It will be interesting to see if that was a fluke or a trend. If it is a trend, he displayed shiftiness I didn’t see on his film the past two years that could translate to a better yards per carry average and snowballing into more touches. The drawback is it is already a timeshare with Ameer Abdullah and Dwayne Washington may be the goal line back, capping value for Riddick.
