Tom-brady
Sucky retirement

Tom Brady probably came away with the best preseason comment of the season. When asked about his future with the New England Patriots and retirement plans on the WEEI Dennis & Callahan morning show, he stated: “There's nowhere I'd rather play, I know that, I love playing for this team and I love representing this team and hopefully I can do that for as long as I can. When I suck, I’ll retire. But I don’t plan on sucking for a long time."

 

Pyro's take: Tom Brady will probably not ever suck, but one day he will have to retire, like him, I hope that it will be a long time before then.

Derek-carr
Carr ready to start

The Oakland Raiders informed their players that Derek Carr would be the starter for week one over Matt Schaub, via Jay Glazer twitter @JayGlazer. Glazer may have gotten the information from head coach Dennis Allen. "Glazer has good relationship with Raiders coach Dennis Allen from the time when Allen worked on the staff of Sean Payton with the New Orleans Saints." Rumors began to float that Derek Carr may become the starting quarterback after Matt Schaub missed playing against Seattle, while Carr really stood out. He completed 11 of 13 passes for 143 yards and three touchdowns.

 

Pyro's take: Derek Carr finished his 2013 college season leading the country with 4,866 passing yards and 48 touchdowns. He stands at 6-3 and weighs 215 pounds, so he is a sturdy quarterback. He has a very strong arm, and has solid accuracy, but may have troubles when throwing the ball in a scramble or hurried situation as he showed against USC in the Vegas bowl.

Carr should be considered in all leagues and placed on your watch list if not drafted and available.

Allen Hurns turn starter?

Undrafted rookie Allen Hurns, has a solid chance of making the starting roster for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has had a great three games this preseason. 13 passes for an NFL-high 230 yards and one touchdown He has 45 more receiving yards than any other player, and he's averaging 17.7 yards per catch. Head coach Gus Bradley has been impressed with how Hurns has done over the course of the preseason. "He has good instincts and is really driven," Bradley said. "We saw it in OTAs – some of the quarterbacks said they really like him. They felt like this guy is a diamond in the rough. Just trust us on this. He has some talent. I think the cool thing for him was it was against the ones. He went out there and performed at that level."

 

Pyro's take: Allen Hurns has a nice frame standing at 6-3 and weighing 195 pounds, also he should have a great opportunity in Jacksonville, due to the little depth the Jaguars have at wide receiver. At the time the Jaguars have Cecil Shorts, Marqise Lee, and Allen Robinson as potential starters.

He is someone that I would put on the scout list for redraft leagues, and would definitely keep an eye on him for Dynasty league drafts. Players like him appear from nowhere every NFL season, and 2014 could be a Hurns turn.

Texans-missing-character-rb
Grimes number 2

According to R.J. White via CBSSports.com, Johnathan Grimes is primed to be the number two behind Arian Foster. Grimes finished the preseason with 42 yards on nine carries and catching three passes for 25 yards. Displaying the skills to be a three-down back just like Foster. "He broke off a 22-yard run in the second quarter that was Foster-esque for his balance and cutback ability."

Alfred Blue was also competing against Grimes, but came up just short, as the Texans released their depth chart showing Grimes as the winner.

 

Pyro's take: Arian Foster in his five seasons has played in only played in 59 games. This leaves plenty of opportunity for Grimes to be on your fantasy radar, and is the man you want if you own Foster.

Mallet traded to Texans

The New England Patriots traded Ryan Mallet (6-foot-6, and weighs 240-pounds, Mallett, 26, was the No. 74 overall pick of the 2011 draft) to the Texans in exchange for a 2016 conditional seventh-round pick in return. The pick could change to a sixth-round selection if Mallett receives a certain number of snap counts. Ryan Fitzpatrick is the starter there, so unless an injury occurs that scenario is unlikely.

Case Keenum was released after the acquisition. Mallet was taken in the third-round of the 2011 draft by the Patriots.

Jimmy Garoppolo, who the Patriots drafted this year (second round, No. 62 overall) and was successful this preseason made Mallett expendable.

 

Pyro's take: Ryan Mallet will get a better opportunity as a Texan. He was just not going to see anytime backing-up the ageless Tom Brady. The trade clears room for the Patriots, and give Garoppolo time to develop, while allowing Mallet to battle for the number two spot behind Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Ryan Fitzpatrick will probably be only a one year fix for the Texans, and next year Mallet can challenge Tom Savage for a starting role.

Mallet should only be considered for keeper or dynasty leagues, but could make a nice free-agency selection if something should happen to Fitzpatrick.

Mikel-leshoure
Leshoure released

The Detroit Lions felt it best to release Mikel Leshoure after three seasons with the team. He hardly got to see the field last season, getting only two attempts. With Joique Bell and Reggie Bush it was a difficult place for Leshoure to be in. He doesn't play special teams, and Bell, Bush, and Theo Riddick get all the carries. In three seasons, he has 217 carries for 807 yards (3.71 YPC) with nine touchdowns and 34 catches for 214 yards.

Leshoure’s rocky tenure in Detroit also included two arrests in the spring of 2012 for marijuana possession and a two-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.

 

Pyro's take: Mikel Leshoure should land somewhere. He has solid talent and could be a multi-purpose back for a team needing assistance in the passing game. Leshoure just unfortunately got caught in they grey area, therefore watch where he lands, and decide if he will have the opportunity to produce, before making him part of your fantasy roster.
