Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Bengals 34, Bills 21

Bengals

  • Another super performance from Andy Dalton with three touchdowns and 243 passing yards. His play has put him in the QB1 conversation.
  • The running back situation is much more like it was at the beginning of last year where it’s pretty even. Jeremy Hill had 56 yards on 16 carries while Gio Bernard had eight carries for 50 yards and a  touchdown. Bernard also added a 23 yard reception. Both should be considered no better than RB2s in dynasty formats.
  • Defensive end Carlos Dunlap had 1.5 more sacks for 6.5 through six games on the season. He’s just 26 but is easily a DL1 in dynasty formats.

Bills

  • Running back LeSean McCoy returned from injury with 90 yards on just 17 carries and a touchdown. He should produce at close to RB1 numbers for this year but it’s obvious his days are numbered. We’d trade him while you still can.
  • Tight end Charles Clay caught nine passes for 62 yards and continues to be a big part of the Buffalo offense. He’s squarely in the low-end TE1 conversation.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Bengals 36, Chiefs 21

Bengals

  • Andy Dalton had another solid day with 321 yards and a touchdown. We’ve never considered him a QB1 but with more weeks like this he might be.
  • The running game continues to lead the Bengals with Gio Bernard going for 62 yards and a touchdown and Jeremy Hill with 40 yards and three touchdowns. Both are weekly RB2 options but, as long as the other is healthy, will never be RB1 material.
  • After his first 100-tackle season last year, Vincent Rey continues to be a tackle machine with 15 today. For non-big play leagues, Rey is borderline LB1 in IDP dynasty leagues.

Chiefs

  • Running back Jamaal Charles piled up the yards again with 75 yards rushing and 70 more receiving. If it wasn’t for his age, he could make a claim as the top dynasty running back.
  • Receiver Jeremy Maclin had another big game although it was mostly in garbage time. After going for 141 receiving yards last week, Maclin went for 148 to go with 11 catches. If the Chiefs keep falling behind, Maclin could see some value.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Bengals 24, Chargers 19

Bengals

  • Quarterback Andy Dalton threw for just 214 yards but three touchdowns. Dalton is one of the rare touchdown-depending quarterbacks and will always be a QB2 in dynasty rankings.
  • Running back Gio Bernard had 123 rushing yards on 20 carries after filling in for starter Jeremy Hill. Bernard still has value as a RB3 in PPR league whether Hill is injured or not.
  • Tight end Tyler Eifert continues his breakout season with four catches for 49 yards and a touchdown. He’s already at TE1 in dynasty rankings but could elevate top-tier by the end of the season.

Chargers

  • Quarterback Philip Rivers had a decent day with 241 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. It’s low-end QB1 numbers.
  • Rookie running back Melvin Gordon had 88 yards on 16 carries which is a lot more like it. He’ll continue to be the first and second down back so his production could be limited by lack of touchdown opportunities.
  • Meanwhile, Danny Woodhead had six catches for 68 yards 36 on the ground. It remains to be seen if his role will be affected by Antonio Gates absence but, if not, Woodhead will continue to be a RB2/3 in PPR dynasty rankings.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Bengals 33, Raiders 13

Bengals

  • It was the good Andy Dalton with 269 yards and two touchdowns. Dalton will never be a QB1 in dynasty rankings but can have some decent games against bad teams.
  • Tight end Tyler Eifert broke out with nine catches, 104 yards and two touchdowns. If he keeps that up he’ll be a top five dynasty tight end.
  • Running back Jeremy Hill didn’t have to do much but had 63 yards and two touchdowns. Hill should be just fine and still a RB1 in dynasty rankings.

Raiders

  • Unfortunately, there weren’t a lot of good things, fantasy or otherwise, from the Raiders. Running back Latavius Murray had just 44 yards on 11 carries plus seven catches for 36 yards. The big lead by Cincinnati took Murray out of the running game which could be common this year. He’s no better than a RB3 in dynasty rankings.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Bengals beat Saints, 27-10

  • Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had a good game with 220 yards and three touchdowns. Dalton has his share of critics but should top out as a low-end QB1 going forward.
  • Rookie running back Jeremy Hill had a big game with 152 yards on just 27 carries. It was a RB1 game but his value will suffer when Gio Bernard comes back.
  • Bengals receiver A.J. Green had a comeback game with six catches for 127 yards and a touchdown. It’s been an inconsistent season for Green but we have doubts about him staying an elite option.

Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Colts shutout Bengals, 27-0

  • Another day at the office for quarterback Andrew Luck with 344 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. He’s battling for the top quarterback in all of dynasty.
  • Likewise, Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton had another big day with seven catches for 107 yards while leading the team with nine targets. He’s a legit WR2 in dynasty formats and could be a low-end WR1.
  • Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had a horrible day with just 126 yards on 18 of 38 passing with no touchdowns. This kind of day won’t help his case to be a low-end QB1.
  • Bengals linebacker Vincent Rey had a big day with 16 tackles. Rey flashed potential last year but will only see  the field if there are injuries.
