- Quarterback Philip Rivers had a great 2015 debut with 404 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. He’s another veteran that is still reliable. He’s a low-end QB1 in dynasty rankings and should be for a few years.
- Rookie Melvin Gordon had a sub-par debut with just 51 yards on 14 carries. He’s currently viewed as a RB1 in dynasty leagues but should probably be considered a RB2 until he can prove otherwise.
- Receiver Keenan Allen had a huge day with 15 catches for 166 yards. If Rivers keeps up his performance, Allen will be the prime beneficiary and should be viewed as a low-end WR2 with upside.
- Safety Eric Weddle proved why he should be considered a DB1 in IDP dynasty leagues with nine tackles and two passes defended. There’s no telling how many years Weddle has left but it’s about reliability in IDP and Weddle has it.
- A couple of semi-breakout games for Detroit. First, rookie Ameer Abdullah ran for 50 yards and a touchdown plus four catches for 44 yards. If he keeps this up, he’s squarely a RB2 in PPR dynasty leagues.
- The second was second-year tight end Eric Ebron with four catches for 53 yards and a touchdown. Hopefully it’s a sign of things to come and Ebron can be the solid TE1 he was drafted to be.
