Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Jaguars 34, Bills 31

Jaguars

  • Blake Bortles had an up and down day with 182 yards plus two touchdowns and an interception. After looking like a bust in the first part of the season, Bortles has come on strong lately. He could end up as a low-end dynasty QB1 by the end of the season.
  • Meanwhile, running back T.J. Yeldon had a good day with 115 yards on 20 carries and a touchdown. He faced a tough defense so it was encouraging. The entire Jaguar offense has picked it up lately which is good news for Yeldon.
  • Young receiver Allen Robinson re-established his place as the top target in Jacksonville, leading the team in targets (9), receptions (6), and yards (98). He also added a touchdown. Robinson can safely be viewed as a low-end WR2 in dynasty rankings

Bills

  • Running back LeSean McCoy had an ok day with 68 yards rushing plus two catches for 36 yards. He’s a low-end RB1 until further notice.
  • Receiver Robert Woods had a good game in place of starter Sammy Watkins with nine catches for 84 yards and a touchdown. Woods may not find a long-term place in Buffalo but should be a reliable piece somewhere else.
  • Safety Corey  Graham had nine tackles plus an interception returned for a touchdown. He’s played like a solid DB1 this season but, at 30 years old, should probably considered more of a DB2 in IDP dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Colts 16, Jaguars 13

Colts

  • Receiver Donte Moncrief continues to be the best Colts receiver with six catches for 75 yards. He should be considered a WR2 in dynasty ranks going forward.
  • Despite just turning 32, linebacker D’Qwell Jackson continues to rack up the tackles with 17 more. He has 47 on the season and should be considered a LB1 in dynasty IDP formats.

Jaguars

  • Blake Bortles had a decent day against a porous defense with 298 yards and a touchdown but it took him 50 pass attempts to get there. He’s still way down the QB2 tier.
  • In a positive development, rookie running back T.J. Yeldon had 105 yards on 22 carries for his best game of his career. He should still be considered no higher than a RB2 for dynasty purposes.
  • Safety Johnathan Cyprien had a huge day with 14 tackles and a fumble recovery. Cyprien has battled injuries in the past but, when healthy, he’s a low-end DB1.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Jaguars 23, Dolphins 20

Jaguars

  • A week after looking like a bust, quarterback Blake Bortles bounced back, slightly, with 273 yards and two touchdowns. Still not a whole lot to get excited about until he does this consistently.
  • Rookie running back T.J. Yeldon didn’t do a whole lot to prove his worth as a first round rookie pick with 70 rushing yards on 25 carries. He’s the lead back, for now, so he still retains RB2/3 value in dynasty leagues but make sure he gets into gear soon.
  • A Jag that didn’t disappoint was receiver Allen Robinson with six catches for 155 yards and two touchdowns. I didn’t believe it before but Robinson is quickly showing his WR2/3 status in dynasty rankings.

Dolphins

  • Another redemption story was quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who went off in the loss with 359 yards plus two touchdowns. Those would be QB1 numbers I just don’t know how often Tannehill gets there.
  • Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry had another big PPR day with eight catches for 110 yards. He led the team in targets and is easily Tannehill’s favorite receiver. As long as that stays true, Landry could knock on the WR2 door for dynasty as well.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Panthers 20, Jaguars 9

Panthers

  • If today is any indication, Cam Newton will have a long season. He completed 18 of 31 for 175 yards and a touchdown plus an interception. He added 35 yards on 14 carries. He just doesn’t have any playmakers around him and will be forced to carry the load. At this point, you can downgrade him in dynasty rankings.
  • Running back Jonathan Stewart failed to impress in his debut as the workhorse in Carolina with only 56 yards on 18 carries plus 25 yards on four catches. It’ll be difficult for Stewart to get anything going if there’s no one else to take the heat off.
  • While Luke Kuechly usually gets all the headlines it was his fellow linebacker Thomas Davis that filled more of the stat sheet with seven tackles, a sack, and an interception. He’s safely a LB2 if not higher in IDP dynasty.

Jaguars

  • I’m calling the time of death on Blake Bortles dynasty career as of this game. He went 22 of 40 for 183 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. You can safely drop him in any format.
  • Rookie running back T.J. Yeldon was passable with 51 yards on 12 carries plus 16 yards on three catches. However, if Bortles can’t get anything going, it’ll be hard for Yeldon to break free.

Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Bengals beat Jaguars 33-23

  • Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles had a better day with 247 yards passing on a 67% completion percentage to go along with two touchdowns and an interception. More days like that and he’ll be a consistent QB2.
  • Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill had a huge day with 154 yards on the ground with two touchdowns. Between him and Gio, the Bengals have quite the combo.
  • Jaguars running back Denard Robinson had another good day with 94 yards and a touchdown. Robinson has risen above the other Jaguar running backs and has averaged over 100 yards a game over the last three games but could be a decent RB2 going forward.
  • Jaguars receiver Allen Hurns blew up for 112 yards on seven catches and two touchdowns. Hurns has had a good year but don’t rely on him for dynasty purposes.

Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Jaguars trounce Browns, 24-6

  • Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles didn’t have a good day in the victory with 159 yards and one touchdown with three interceptions. He did add 37 yards rushing. Bortles will show streaks of QB2 status this year but could be a low-end QB1 in the future.
  • Meanwhile, Jaguars running back Denard Robinson had the best game of his career with 127 yards rushing and a touchdown. Robinson is, by no means, the long-term solution in Jacksonville.
  • Browns receiver Andrew Hawkins had the best game of his season with five catches and 112 yards. With no Josh Gordon, Hawkins is easily the top receiver  target in Cleveland.
  • Browns rookie linebacker Christian Kirksey had the best game of his short career with nine tackles and a sack. There was a lot of hype around Kirksey into the season and this could be the start of a productive dynasty career.

Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Titans outlast Jaguars, 16-14

  • Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles had his best game of the year with 336 yards and a touchdown plus an interception. Even against a bad team its progress.
  • Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts III also had his best game of  the year with 10 catches for 103 yards. He should be Bortles top target this year and beyond and could be a decent WR3 going forward.
  • Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien had a big game with 15 tackles and a pass defended. He’s proving his DB1 status in dynasty leagues each week.
