Kirk Cousins had one of the best games of his career with 317 passing yards and three touchdowns plus zero interceptions. Despite the game, it’s doubtful Cousins is the long-term solution for anyone.
Jordan Reed came back from injury with 11 catches for 72 yards and two touchdowns proving he can be a TE1 when healthy. So much risk however.
Rookie receiver Jamison Crowder continues to fill in nicely for the injured DeSean Jackson with five catches for 48 yards. He could be an interesting dynasty stash even when Jackson returns.
Rookie Jameis Winston had a solid day with 297 yards and two touchdowns. He’s up to nine touchdowns on the season and should only get better with a healthy Mike Evans.
Doug Martin continues to bounce back with 136 yards on the ground plus three catches for 35 yards. He’s played like a RB1 this year but is a free agent after the season. You may want to sell high while you can.
Mike Evans had his best game of the year with eight catches for 164 yards and a touchdown. He’s struggled through injuries this year but should be back on track as a WR1.
Running back Devonta Freeman continues to roll with 116 yards on the ground plus two catches for 14 yards. He’s been nothing short of a RB1 this year but I still wonder if he has true bell cow duties locked up for the foreseeable future.
Julio Jones had another solid outing with nine catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. He also had almost as many targets as the rest of the team. He’s an elite option at WR for dynasty leagues.
Running back Antonio Andrews took the lead in the Titans backfield with 57 yards on 10 carries. This is another situation where nothing can end well regarding the running backs. It’s best to just avoid.
Tight end Delanie Walker had seven catches for 55 yards and continues to be a sneaky, low-end TE1. If Marcus Mariota can progress, Walker can retain that value.
Drew Brees had an ordinary day with 255 yards plus a touchdown and an interception. It becomes harder to keep Brees as a certain QB1 in dynasty formats.
Meanwhile, Mark Ingram had a good week with 143 yards plus a touchdown. He had two touchdowns vultured and actually had the same number of carries as Khiry Robinson but he made the most of them.
Rookie linebacker Stephone Anthony had seven tackles plus a big interception. He’s currently no higher than a LB2/3 but more plays like that and he could end up as a LB1.
Another high scoring day for Andrew Luck with 333 yards and three touchdowns plus two interceptions while playing most of the game behind. Luck’s play has fallen off to the point where no one thinks he’s the top dynasty quarterback anymore.
On the receiving side, T.Y. Hilton had a very TY-like day with four catches for 150 yards and two touchdowns. Hilton continues to be the top receiving threat in a pass-heavy offense which means good WR2 value.
LInebacker Jerrell Freeman had 12 more tackles and is now up to 48 on the season. In tackle-friendly formats, Freeman is a LB1/2.
Running back Charcandrick West had a great day with 110 yards and a touchdown on the ground plus two catches for 109 yards. There’s no doubt who the Chiefs are going with in place of Jamaal Charles. West could have some good value on dynasty benches.
Despite no Jeremy Maclin, Travis Kelce had a very pedestrian day with five catches for 73 yards. Kelce is a TE1 but nowhere near elite status.
One player who did take advantage of no Jeremy Maclin was rookie Chris Conley who had six catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. He’s someone to watch in dynasty leagues even if Maclin returns.
Le’Veon Bell had another solid performance with 121 yards on the ground plus four catches for 16 yards. Him and Todd Gurley could be 1 and 1A in dynasty rankings.
Same goes for Antonio Brown with six catches for 124 yards. Another day at the office.
Linebacker Lawrence Timmons had 10 tackles and a half sack in another LB1 day.
Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater got back on track with 316 yards plus two touchdowns. He struggled to start the season but more games like this put him back in the QB1 conversation.
Receiver Stefon Diggs continues to impress with six catches for 108 yards and a touchdown. It was also the first time he led the team in targets. Diggs has the potential to be a good WR2/3 in dynasty formats.
Rookie linebacker Eric Kendricks had six tackles plus two sacks, doubling his sack total for the season. More games like this and he’ll be a solid LB2/3 in dynasty IDP formats.
Matt Stafford was on his way to get back on track with 256 yards and two touchdowns before getting hurt. Stafford could still end up in the QB1 conversation by the end of the season but it’ll take a lot.
Meanwhile, rookie Ameer Abdullah appears to have taken over the starting job permanently, leading the team with eight carries for 43 yards. He’s not quite setting the world on fire like other rookie runners but could still be a decent RB2 in dynasty formats.
Tight end Eric Ebron continues to string together good performances with five catches for 83 yards and a touchdown. He’ll need to be more consistent to enter the TE1 conversation but he could be a good buy low candidate.
It was the Todd Gurley show with 128 yards and two touchdowns on the ground plus four catches for 35 yards. He might be the top running back in dynasty.
Receiver Tavon Austin continues to give some value as a WR3/4 with four catches for 43 yards while leading the team in targets with seven. He’s finally being used as he should and it’s paying off, slowly but surely.
The running game is a mess with three players getting between five and eight carries. No one there is worth monitoring for dynasty purposes.
One of the few bright spots this season has been tight end Gary Barnidge. He had six catches for 101 yards. He’s in his last year of his current contract so it remains to be seen if he stays in Cleveland. But if so, he could keep these numbers up beyond this season.
Ryan Tannehill was about as perfect as you could get, going 18/19 for 282 yards and four touchdowns. We still can’t pull the trigger on Tannehill as a QB1 in dynasty but this doesn’t hurt.
Meanwhile, running back Lamar Miller is making a case to be a RB1 with 175 yards on the ground plus three catches for 61 yards and two total touchdowns. He’s been running wild in the two games since the Dolphins fired Joe Philbin. Maybe this is a sign of things to come.
Jarvis Landry had a very un-Jarvis Landry-like game with five catches for 83 yards and two touchdowns. In PPR dynasty leagues, he can be a solid WR2/3.
Not much to like including the Achilles tear sustained by Arian Foster. He gained 59 yards on the ground plus caught five passes for 66 yards and another touchdown before going down, probably for the season and beyond.
DeAndre Hopkins had only six catches for 50 yards. No reason to worry as he should bounce back next week.
On the defensive side, Jadeveon Clowney had his best game with 8 tackles and a sack. Hopefully it’ll kickstart a productive season.
Tom Brady keeps on rolling with 355 yards and two touchdowns. He’s so far ahead of most quarterbacks that, despite the age, he has to be a top-five dynasty QB.
Likewise, Rob Gronkowski had 11 catches for 108 yards and a touchdown. He’s dynasty’s top TE. Period.
On defense, linebacker Jamie Collins led the way with 12 tackles plus a sack. He should be considered a LB1 in dynasty IDP formats.
Even though he’s not the long-term answer, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a solid option this season. Today, he had 295 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. It’s possible you could sell him this year to a win-now team.
Receiver Eric Decker continues to provide value under the radar with six catches for 94 yards and a team-high 12 targets. Decker has succeeded despite changes in coaches and quarterbacks.
Defensive end Sheldon Richardson added another sack in his second game back. He’s a DL1 when healthy and playing but it’s anyone’s guess if he’ll be back with New York next year. I might try to sell high.
