Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Lions 37, Bears 34

Lions 

  • It was vintage Matthew Stafford with 405 yards and four touchdowns. It was against a poor defense so we wouldn’t bump him back up dynasty rankings just yet.
  • It was also vintage Calvin Johnson with six catches for 166 yards and a touchdown. Calvin hasn’t fallen down dynasty rankings nearly as much as Stafford and should be considered a low-end WR1.
  • Linebacker Stephen Tulloch had 13 tackles but, unlike the two above, probably won’t have a day like that again. Tulloch is no longer a three-down back so his dynasty ranking should drop.

Bears

  • Jay Cutler kept slinging it with 353 yards and a touchdown. Still keeping him at QB2 levels.
  • Receiver Alshon Jeffery came back big with eight catches for 147 yards and a touchdown. With the Bears season sliding, Jeffery should get a lot of targets.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Vikings 26, Lions 16

Vikings

  • Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had another average game with 153 yards and a touchdown but added 21 yards on the ground and another touchdown. No need to abandon ship on Bridgewater yet but hopefully the hype catches up soon.
  • Meanwhile, Adrian Peterson ran wild for 134 yards rushing plus 58 yards receiving. He should continue to be a RB1 in dynasty rankings until he shows he can’t do it.
  • Tight end Kyle Rudolph had another five-catch game with 30 yards and a touchdown. He’ll continue to rise in the dynasty rankings.

Lions

  • Quarterback Matt Stafford had a very Stafford-like game with 286 yards on 53 pass attempts with two touchdowns and an interception. Stafford has clearly played himself out of elite QB1 status in dynasty leagues.
  • Rookie running back Ameer Abdullah had a poor game with nine yards rushing and nine yards receiving on just eight touches. He should still lead the team in carries going forward so he’ll be fine.
  • Receiver Calvin Johnson bounced back with 10 catches for 83 yards and a touchdown. He may not be the elite dynasty receiver he was but he’s still a low-end WR1.

Updated Dynasty Wide Receiver Rankings – April 2015

Complete updated dynasty wide receiver rankings can be found here

  • It’s been awhile since our last rankings but above is the final look at wide receivers before the 2015 NFL Draft. The updated top five is now Dez Bryant, Julio Jones, A.J. Green, Demaryius Thomas, and Antonio Brown.
  • Interesting notes are Calvin Johnson not only dropping from the top spot but out of the top five completely.
  • Four of last year’s rookies, all first round picks are in the top 15: Odell Beckham at 7, Mike Evans at 8, Sammy Watkins at 12, and Kelvin Benjamin at 15. This year’s rookie class is talented too but we may have reached the apex of top receiver talent with so many out there.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Bills escape Lions, 17-14

  • Lions quarterback Matt Stafford had a down day with 221 yards, a touchdown and an interception. You wonder if the absence of Calvin Johnson, Joique Bell, and Reggie Bush towards the end of the game is having an impact.
  • Bills running back C.J. Spiller continues to disappoint with seven yards on nine carries and 25 yards receiving on three catches.
  • One person taking advantage of Calvin Johnson’s absence is Golden Tate who racked up 134 yards on seven catches and a touchdown. Tate is a low-end WR2 as long as he’s in Detroit.
  • Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins had his best day with 87 yards on seven catches and led the team with 12 targets. He could develop into at least a WR2 his year with the potential for more.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Lions beat Jets 24-17

  • Lions quarterback Matt Stafford had a good day with 293 yards and two touchdowns without the assistance of Calvin Johnson. He could pass Cam Newton soon in dynasty rankings if he hasn’t already.
  • Jets running back Chris Ivory had 84 yards rushing with two catches for 16 yards and proved, again, that he is the top running back in New York. He’s a low-end RB2, more like a RB3 in dynasty formats.
  • Jets rookie tight end Jace Amaro had his best game of the year, catching all five of his targets for 58 yards. He may end up as the best rookie tight end in 2014 so take advantage while you can.
  • Lions receiver Golden Tate filled in nicely with eight catches for 116 yards. He’s a legit WR3 in all dynasty formats.
