Patriots quarterback Tom Brady didn’t show any signs of slowing down without tight end Rob Gronkowski, going 34 of 55 for 364 yards, two touchdowns and a pick. Brady is still a QB1 in dynasty leagues despite the seemingly lack of talent around him. He can make it work.
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had another good game going 25 of 37 for 312 yards and three touchdowns with zero turnovers. Tannehill has strung together three good games in a row to coincide with the Dolphins three game winning steak. Tannehill is slowly, but surely, progressing and should be an intriguing dynasty quarterback next year.
Patriots receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola picked up the slack in place of Rob Gronkowski. Edelman had 139 yards on 13 catches while leading the team with 19 targets. Amendola finally busted out with 10 catches for 131 yards. Amendola is the only one of the two to be under contract next year so he’ll be the better dynasty prospect of the two.
Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace had his fourth 100-yard game of the year with six catches for 105 yards on nine targets. Hopefully it’s a sign of things to come but until Wallace can string together more games like this, he shouldn’t be trusted.
