Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Dolphins beat Bills, 22-9

  • Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a very business-like day with 240 passing yards plus two touchdowns with no interceptions. This appears to be the norm for Tannehill which puts him in the QB2 tier but nothing more.
  • Bills running back Bryce Brown had a decent day as the passing back with 14 yards rushing to go along with seven catches and 57 yards. Brown is widely expected to have a bigger role in Buffalo next year so this is a good start.
  • Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry had quietly had one of the better rookie receiver seasons and added five catches for 46 yards and a touchdown He’s been a solid WR3 in PPR leagues.
  • Bills defensive end Mario Williams had 3.5 sacks to bring his total to 10 for the year. He’s a solid DL2 even in dynasty leagues.

Daily Dynasty Update – January 30th

  • Big news from Denver as the Broncos are not expected to re-sign running back Knowshon Moreno. Montee Ball dynasty owners need to plan accordingly. Ball came on strong down the stretch and proved he can handle the load. With at least one year in a Peyton Manning offense, Ball could flirt with RB1 status in 2014.
  • Lions running back Joique Bell claims there’s interest on both sides for a long-term deal. Bell came on strong in place of an injured Reggie Bush throughout the season with over 50 catches and over 1,000 yards from scrimmage. A deal would be good news for Bell but would significantly hinder Reggie Bush’s dynasty value going forward.
  • New Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay loves his new tight end Jordan Reed. This will only enhance Reed’s value heading in to 2014. As a sufferer of a severe concussion last year, Reed’s health needs to be monitored especially playing such a busy position.
  • A crowded backfield in Philadelphia could mean someone is on the way out, according to a Philadelphia blog. Additionally, with both Chris Polk and Bryce Brown being on the roster before Chip Kelly’s tenure started, the same blog suggests he could find one better suited to his offense in the draft or free agency. Stay tuned as this looks like it might be a fluid situation.
  • Bears defensive lineman Shea McClellin is being converted to a strong-side linebacker. Maybe this will salvage some value out of McClellin who has been a huge disappointment as a lineman his first two years.
  • Ravens running back Bernard Pierce had rotator cuff surgery and will miss the next 4-5 months. The recovery will impede his ability to get acclimated to new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak’s system. Pierce was one of the bigger disappointments after averaging 2.9 YPC last year after a terrific rookie season. If the Texans offense is any indicator, Pierce would play the Ben Tate role to Ray Rice’s Arian Foster – if he can stay healthy.

Dynasty Recap – Week 16 – Eagles blow out Bears, 54-11

  • Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was extremely efficient, going 21 of 25 for 230 yards and two touchdowns. He’s looking like a QB1 in dynasty leagues heading in to 2014.
  • Eagles running back LeSean McCoy ran wild with 133 yards on just 18 carries and two touchdowns. He also added six catches for 29 yards. It’s been a race all year for fantasy MVP between McCoy and Jamaal Charles. Both are at the top of the dynasty charts.
  • The game got so out of hand the Eagles backup running back Bryce Brown had 115 yards on just nine carries. Just this week we covered Brown’s disappointing year but this game may restore faith in his dynasty prospects.
  • Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks was an animal with five tackles and two sacks. He now has 94 tackles and four sacks on the year. Kendricks is just 23 and should be a consistent dynasty produce for many years to come.
