Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Dolphins bounce Raiders, 38-14

  • Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a good day with 278 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. If that’s the best you can muster against Oakland then you need to move on.
  • Dolphins running back Lamar Miller had a good day against, an albeit, weak defense. Miller had 64 yards and two touchdowns on the ground with a 5+ YPC. He’s still a dicey RB2/3 play until he can get more consistent.
  • The good and back for Raiders receiver Andre Holmes was he led the team with 12 targets but only hauled in five of them for 74 yards and a touchdown. It wasn’t all due to Holmes as he erratic quarterback play from both Derek Carr and Matt McGloin.

  • carrGet ready for the Derek Carr bandwagon to get more crowded as he looks better in camp, at the moment, than Matt Schaub. Of course, there’s no pads or live-action yet so reserve judgement until then.
  • Giants linebacker Jon Beason should only miss 12 weeks with a fracture in his right foot, meaning he is not in danger of missing significant time this regular season. It’s a bullet dodged for Beason owners as he bounced back with the Giants last year.
  • In one of the less sexy training camp battles, Andre Holmes appears to be the third receiver in Oakland over Denarius Moore. Moore has flashed potential in the past but never put it together. Holmes, while already 26, is fresh and could have some value.

Dynasty Recap – Week 16 – Chargers beat up Raiders, 26-13

  • Chargers running back Ryan Mathews continues his solid year with 99 yards on 25 carries and a touchdown. He also added three catches for 20 yards. Mathews will be an interesting dynasty asset next year as he’ll be back in San Diego but can he stay healthy?
  • Raiders running back Rashad Jennings had a solid day with 45 yards on 10 carries. He also added three catches for 27 yards. Jennings has earned a starting job this year but you never know what the brain trust is thinking in Oakland for next year.
  • Raiders receiver Andre Holmes continues to grind away, leading the team in targets with eight, catches with five, and yards with 71. Holmes was a great combine prospect and would be best served with decent quarterback play.

Dynasty Recap – Week 13 – Cowboys beat Raiders, 31-24

  • Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray had a big day with 63 yards rushing on 17 carries and three touchdowns. He also added five catches for 39 yards. Health has been an issue in each of Murray’s three seasons but you could do a lot worse with your RB2 position.
  • Raiders receiver Andre Holmes had a career day with 136 yards on seven catches. At 6′ 4″ and 210 pounds, Holmes has the physical traits to be a successful dynasty receiver. He just needed the opportunity.
  • Raiders linebacker Nick Roach continues to dominate the Mike position with 11 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble. Signed to a four-year deal before the season, Roach is already at 89 tackles through 12 games to go with 5.5 sacks,  three forced fumbles, an interception and two passes defended. And he still has a quarter of the season to go.
