Hey STARTERS Nation:

Of course, we have our Draft Analyzer here at STARTERS, which cranks out custom cheat sheets using an industry-leading predictive algorithm. However, I also provide my personal redraft and dynasty rankings outside of the Analyzer rankings, just to give all you fantasy fanatics another list to look at. Use them all, you can never get enough info to mix together! Below are both the updated dynasty and redraft links!

NOTE: Due to endless requests for it, I have added a tiering system to both sets of rankings!

Spotlight: Brandon Marshall

2015 fantasy football player spotlights

Brandon Marshall

3/7/2015: Brandon Marshall is now wearing a Jets uniform, as he was just traded to the Jets in exchange for a fifth-round pick. This could be great news for Alshon Jeffery, who is ready to become a true fantasy WR1 in 2015, but this isn’t the greatest news for… Read Spotlight

NEWS: Latavius Murray (concussion) cleared for Week 14; will he be a workhorse, though?

SMITTY: He got in a limited practice on Wednesday and should get at least flex-type work in Week 14. The head-scratching part of this story is that Raiders coach Tony Sparano reportedly told Sirius XM Radio yesterday that Murray won’t be used like a workhorse rusher in Weeks 14-17. How this makes sense is beyond us, and that’s why he feels more like a flex-type option this week vs. a lock to produce RB2-type numbers. Talent is not the issue here — Oakland is.

NEWS: Latavius Murray (concussion) ruled out of Week 13.

SMITTY: This is a complete bummer, as the guy had high-end RB written all over him heading into Week 13. It looks like he failed his final concussion test. It was a huge shot to the head that he took. We will keep you posted for next week, though. As for Week 13, it will be a total RBBC between Darren McFadden, Marcel Reece, and Maurice Jones-Drew.

NEWS: Latavius Murray (concussion) limited on Thursday; Will he play Week 13?

SMITTY: He has sneaky RB2 written all over him if he in fact plays Week 13. He is an exciting dynasty player to own/acquire right now, too. If you agree, disagree, get on our forums and talk about this very topic! As for Week 13, keep checking back and make sure he practices today. Looking for Week 13 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Latavius Murray explodes for 112 yards and 2TDs on just 4 rushes, then suffers concussion.

SMITTY: He sure did look amazing on those four carries, but staying on the field has been an issue for the hidden talent. That said, most anyone would have suffered a concussion if hit helmet to helmet like Murray was on Thursday night, so this particular injury should be added to the ‘not predictable’ category. Already, with only one played game in Week 12, we’re looking at next week’s No. 1 overall pick-up. This kid has tons of dynasty appeal as well. Looking for Week 12 Power Rankings?
