Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Dolphins 44, Texans 26

Dolphins

  • 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.

Texans

  • 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.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Texans surprise Browns, 23-7

  • Texans running back Alfred Blue performed admirably in place of Arian Foster with 156 yards on the ground. He won’t overtake Foster as long as they’re on the same team but should be owned in all dynasty leagues.
  • Browns running back Isaiah Crowell got the majority of carries and ended up with 61 yards on the ground plus two catches for 30 yards. He undoubtedly has the most upside of any of the Browns running backs and, hopefully, will continue to start.
  • Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins led the team again with 80 yards receiving, continues a season that’s been better than Andre Johnson. Hopkins appears to have overtaken Johnson in Houston.
  • Texans defensive end J.J. Watt had another sack with five tackles and a receiving touchdown. He’s the top DL in dynasty and fantasy league and it’s not even close.

Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Colts escape Texans, 33-28

  • Colts quarterback Andrew Luck continues his hot streak 370 yards and three touchdowns with an interception. Each week like this further solidifies his case a the top QB in dynasty.
  • The main beneficiary of Luck’s performance was receiver T.Y. Hilton with nine catches for 223 yards and a touchdown. He has the most upside of all the Colts receivers.
  • On the Houston side, running back Arian Foster looks like his old self with 109 yards and two touchdowns rushing to go with three catches for 32 yards. He’s an ideal RB2 in dynasty leagues.
  • Houston defensive end J.J. Watt had a ridiculous night with two sacks along with a fumble return for a touchdown. There’s simply no better IDP player right now than Watt.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Cowboys escape Texans, 20-17

  • Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo  had another good outing with 324 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. Romo’s long-term health is in doubt but he is a low-end QB1 as long as he’s around.
  • Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray continues his torrid pace with 136 yards rushing to go with six catches for 56 yards. He’s been a top RB this year but a lot of uncertainty surrounds him including injury questions. Might not be a bad idea to sell high – really high.
  • On the other side of the field, Texans running back Arian Foster had a throwback game with
  • As long as Romo keeps producing, so will Dez Bryant. He led the team with nine catches on 14 targets and 84 yards plus a touchdown.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Texans beat Raiders 30-14

  • Texans running back Arian Foster thrashed the Raiders for 138 yards. Foster has faced weak defenses the first two weeks but its encouraging. You can do worse than him for your RB2 in dynasty.
  • Raiders receiver James Jones had a big day with 112 yards on nine catches with 14 targets to lead the team in call categories. There’s not much dynasty value in a 30-year old receiver with Jones’ production but he could be a good win-now candidate in Oakland, especially with how much they’re expected to be behind this year.
  • On the other side of the field, Texans receiver Andre Johnson continues to defy the years with six catches and 74 yards on seven targets, leading the team in all categories. He should continue to be a WR2 in all dynasty formats.
  • Raiders safety Tyvon Branch continues to produce like a DB1 with 12 tackles in a losing effort. Still just 27, he’s a consensus DB1 in all dynasty formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Texans escape Redskins, 14-6

  • If today’s any indication, the Redskins will be passing often. RGIII had 37 attempts for 267 yards. He only ran three times. It’s officially time to be concerned about his dynasty value.
  • However, the Washington receivers should have good seasons with Pierre Garcon getting 10 receptions for 77 yards and DeSean Jackson getting eight catches for 62 yards. Both should continue to get WR2 numbers.
  • On the Houston side, Arian Foster looked like his old self with 103 yards rushing. As long as he’s healthy, he should be a decent RB2 going forward in dynasty leagues.
  • As for the Houston receivers, Andre Johnson does what he always does with six catches for 93 yards on nine targets. He’ll be a WR2 for a few more years. Meanwhile, second-year receiver DeAndre Hopkins went four for 89 yards and a touchdown. He should continue to ascend.
