Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Raiders down Chargers, 27-17

  • Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers continued his fantasy renaissance with 411 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. By no means is Rivers a viable option long-term but he could be traded away for assets.
  • With Rivers’ resurgence, Charger receivers Keenan Allen and Vincent Brown are suddenly viable options. Both are young and talented and, as long as the opportunities are there, should continue to produce.
  • On the Raiders side, quarterback Terrelle Pryor had another solid outing. He completed 78% of his passes and threw for 221 yards. He’s completed 63% of his passes in each game this season and has rushed for 229 yards. He has five turnovers, which has hindered his fantasy and real-life value, but if he can control those, he should be a viable QB2 for many years to come.
  • Raiders defensive end Lamarr Houston had a sack to go along with seven tackles. Houston quietly has three sacks on the year and should easily set a career-high this season. At just 26, Houston could be a DL2/3 for many years to come in dynasty IDP leagues.
