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.

Daily Dynasty Update – April 24th

  • shortsJaguars receiver Cecil Shorts is entering a contract year after two average seasons as a starter. Shoddy quarterback play can partially be to blame but he should have no issues this year as Jacksonville is expected to draft one in the early rounds. Just 26, Shorts is still a dynasty buy for me.
  • Lions running back Mikel Leshoure is skipping workouts in the hopes of getting out of Detroit. He’s a clear #3 on the depth chart and is hoping to catch on a #2 somewhere else. Chances are slim that happens.
  • Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar is ready to go for 2014 as DeMarco Murray’s backup. Murray has a spotty injury history so it’s likely Dunbar will see some significant playing time, if he can stay healthy himself.

Dynasty Recap – Week 13 – Jaguars escape Browns, 32-28

  • Browns receiver Josh Gordon went off (again) for 10 catches for 261 yards and two touchdowns. He’s also quarterback-proof and should be even better as time goes on.
  • Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts tied for the team lead with 11 targets and six catches for 64 yards and a touchdown. Shorts continues to impress in light of the turmoil in Jacksonville. Should they draft a decent quarterback next year, Shorts has dynasty potential.
  • Jaguars middle linebacker Paul Posluszny had 11 more tackles with 0.5 sacks and a pass defended. Posluszny is already over 100 tackles on the year but is due to make $7.45 million next year. He could be a casualty in a new Jacksonville regime.

Dynasty Recap – Week 8 – 49ers destroy Jaguars, 42-10

  • 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had an extremely efficient day, going 10/16 for 164 yards and one touchdown along with two rushing touchdowns. He’s still going to be a top-tier quarterback in dynasty circles for a long time.
  • Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts III continues to perform with seven catches for 74 yards on 10 targets. With an upgrade at quarterback next year, he’s sure to improve. Now might be a good time to make a play for Shorts.
  • 49ers rookie safety Eric Reid had eight tackles to go along with a pass defended. Reid will be a great producer for many years.

Dynasty Recap – Week 3 – Seahawks destroy Jaguars 45-17

  • This game got out of hand early which meant Marshawn Lynch was pulled. After that, rookie Christine Michael was the lead back and had nine carries compared to three for Robert Turbin. Michael will be very good and even better because of the system he’s in.
  • Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts had 15 targets to go with his eight catches and 143 yards. It’s good to see Shorts won’t be held back because of poor quarterback play. It does remain to be seen how his targets are affected when Justin Blackmon returns. Either way, an improved quarterback next year should help Shorts’ cause. He’s a long-term hold.
  • Seattle rookie tight end Luke Willson had a nice day in clean-up duty with five catches and 76 yards. Incumbent Zach Miller has an almost $5M cap hit next year so don’t be surprised if he gets cut and Willson steps in. He’s a long-term hold.
  • Jaguars rookie safety John Cyprien had a nice day with seven tackles, one sack, and a forced fumble. He’s getting his chance and should be a DB1 for many years to come.
