Complete updated dynasty quarterback rankings found here.

  • We have a new entrant into the top five with Matt Ryan bringing up the rear after Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton, and Russell Wilson. 
  • Had several starters named this pre-season which contributed to risers in dynasty rankings including Sam Bradford to 18th fro 24th; Brian Hoyer to 36th from 42nd; Tyrod Taylor to 38th after being unranked and Kirk Cousins to 41st from 45th.
  • Rookies Jameis Winston moves up one to 15th from 16th while Marcus Mariota is steady at 17th; Garrett Grayson drops a little from 34th to 37th while Bryce Petty does the same from 39th to 42nd.

Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Browns slip by Bucs, 22-17

  • Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer had a good game for a change with 300 yards and two touchdowns plus two interceptions. He was playing a weak defense so we wouldn’t too much into this performance. However, with the Browns at 5-3, don’t look for Johnny Football anytime soon.
  • In what could potentially be one of the first of many starts for Bucs running back Bobby Rainey, he ran for 87 yards plus a catch for 34 yards. Rainey will see better days this year but not much after.
  • Bucs rookie receiver Mike Evans broke out with seven catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns. He could be a WR1 by the end of the year.
  • With Mark Barron in St. Louis, Major Wright stepped in with 13 tackles. If he keeps this up, he could be considered a DB1 in the future.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Browns come back against Titans, 29-28

  • Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer continues to hold off Johnny Manziel with another strong performance including 292 yards and three touchdowns. If the Browns keep winning, Hoyer will keep playing.
  • Browns running back Ben Tate had a great day back with 123 yards on the ground. He out touched rookie Terrance West 3-1 and should be a decent play as a RB2
  • Titans receiver Justin Hunter had his best day of the year with three catches for 99 yards and a touchdown. He just hasn’t been consistent enough to warrant anything more  than a WR4/5.
  • Titans safety Michael Griffin had a huge day with 14 tackles, a sack and a pass defended. He’s not known as a dynasty asset but with more days like today, Griffin could trend up.

Dynasty Impact – Cleveland Browns select Johnny Manziel, QB

manzielDynasty Impact: Finally, Manziel is taken after the Browns trade up to get the quarterback. Pairing him with Josh Gordon will be a dynamic duo in dynasty circles but he could possibly sit for a year behind current starter Brian Hoyer. Manziel has the arm and wheels to be successful and will have the weapons to do well for many years. He’ll play behind a great offensive line as well. Manziel should challenge for the first quarterback taken in rookie dynasty drafts.

Daily Dynasty Update – February 25th

  • Free agent quarterback Michael Vick might find a home with the Jets in 2014. Vick is the top free agent quarterback available and should be starting somewhere next year, salving some dynasty value for Vick owners.
  • The only quarterback left standing in Cleveland is Brian Hoyer. The Browns are widely expected to draft a quarterback but, for now, Hoyer is the starter. You’d be wise to pick him up in 12, or 14-team dynasty leagues. 
  • The DeMarcus Ware cap casualty rumors are picking up steam. From a business perspective it makes sense: cutting Ware would save $7 million or roughly 1/3 of how much over the cap the Cowboys currently stand. But it would be another downgrade on talent as Dallas continues to pay it forward. 

Daily Dynasty Update – January 27th

Daily Dynasty Update – January 24th

  • Giants running back David Wilson now has his neck brace off after surgery. It’s good news for Wilson but dynasty owners are still in a holding pattern. Wilson’s availability right now is a complete question mark.
  • New Browns coach Mike Pettine is a fan of quarterback Brian Hoyer. At the very least, Hoyer will enter the season as one of the better backup prospects in all of football. It’s even possible the Browns take a project at QB and allow Hoyer the starting job one more year.
  • In an interesting stat, Texans quarterback Case Keenum lost more yards per sack than any other quarterback in the league. Keenum is not the long-term answer at quarterback for the Texans who are widely expected to draft one in May with the first overall pick.
  • The Frank Gore contract with San Francisco is finally becoming an issue with Gore due $6 million next year at age 31. Even an amateur Madden player in Franchise mode would know that is too much for a 31-year old. It shouldn’t be an issue as Gore is expected back next year but his days are numbered as a reliable fantasy back. Trade him now and look for Kendall Hunter and Marcus Lattimore to get more looks in 2014 no matter what.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Browns beat Bengals 17-6

  • It might be time to look at Brian Hoyer as an option in Cleveland. Hoyer went 25/38 for 269 yards, a 7.1 YPA and two touchdowns with no interceptions. You never know if Cleveland might roll with Hoyer for the future.
  • Meanwhile, Cleveland running back Willis McGahee can safely be avoided. He had 15 carries for 46 yards for a 3.1 YPA. The 31-year old wont’ be around next year.
  • Meanwhile, Cincinnati running back Giovani Bernard looks like the real deal again. He had 10 carries (compared to six for BenJarvus Green-Ellis) and six catches on seven targets.
  • Cleveland linebacker Craig Robertson had 10 tackles. The 25-year old is one of the young, athletic linebackers that Cleveland will use in waves to get to the quarterback. Robertson isn’t any more special than some of the others in Cleveland (D’Qwell Jackson, Barkevious Mingo) but he could pick up some tackle scraps.
  • Speaking of Barkevious Mingo, he continued his streak of at least one sack per game. He also added two tackles for a loss. Mingo is a good, young linebacker that should be on your dynasty radar.

Week 3 Dynasty Recap – Browns down Vikings, 31-7

  • While the Cleveland running game appears to be a wreck in the wake of the Trent Richardson trade, the passing game had no problems. Brian Hoyer had 321 yards and three touchdowns (with three interceptions) on the day. Hoyer will be a hot waiver wire pickup. At the moment, I couldn’t imagine the Browns sticking with Hoyer past this year (hello Kelly Holcomb) but stranger things have happened.
  • On the receiving end for Cleveland, receiver Josh Gordon led the way with 10 catches for 146 yards with tight end Jordan Cameron hauling in three touchdowns.
  • Just avoid the Cleveland running game. Please.
  • On the Vikings side, quarterback Christian Ponder had a good day on the ground with two touchdowns and 46 yards. Through the air, he averaged 5.4 YPA, had one interception and was sacked six times. Yikes.
  • Vikings rookie receiver Cordarrelle Patterson had his best receiving game so far with 49 yards. He’ll only get better as the season progresses if you can snag him.
