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!

Redraft Rankings Dynasty Rankings

NEWS: Derek Carr to start Week 1 against Jets.

According to numerous reports, Raiders QB Derek Carr will start Week 1 against the Jets.

SMITTY: No surprise here, as Derek Carr looked excellent in his last preseason outing. He could have some ups and downs this year, but Carr has been my favorite rookie passer for quite some time now and his dynasty value is strong. Looking for Week 1 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Derek Carr looking strong in final preseason contest.

Derek Carr completed 11-of-13 passes for 143 yards and 3TDs in his team’s final preseason contest against the Seahawks.

SMITTY: The rookie has been one of our biggest QB sleepers from this draft class for some time now… It won’t be long before he cracks the line-up in Oakland, and he is a fine dynasty prospect! Looking for Week 1 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Andre Holmes to stretch the field in 2014; James Jones the team’s No. 1?

According to, Raiders WR Andre Holmes has the confidence of QB Matt Schaub when it comes to getting “to the top” of his routes; Schaub also feels that Holmes “can stretch the field” for the team in 2014.

SMITTY: I actually really like what I’ve seen out of Andre Holmes, but his upside really boils down to the quarterback position. While I have my questions about Matt Schaub playing at a consistent level all year, I really like the future upside of Derek Carr. Oakland could misuse Holmes, though, know that. For now, though, Holmes remains a nice dynasty grab (in larger leagues), and he could certainly beat out all the other Oakland receivers in terms of fantasy production if he got the targets. James Jones will be the trendy choice for top reception-getter in Oakland this upcoming season, but he is banged up right now with a shoulder injury. Denarious Moore and Rod Streater also have a shot at being a top target-getter, but all these guys seem more like a team’s No. 2 receiver. Holmes has the most natural talent.
