Running back Charcandrick West had a great day with 110 yards and a touchdown on the ground plus two catches for 109 yards. There’s no doubt who the Chiefs are going with in place of Jamaal Charles. West could have some good value on dynasty benches.
Despite no Jeremy Maclin, Travis Kelce had a very pedestrian day with five catches for 73 yards. Kelce is a TE1 but nowhere near elite status.
One player who did take advantage of no Jeremy Maclin was rookie Chris Conley who had six catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. He’s someone to watch in dynasty leagues even if Maclin returns.
Le’Veon Bell had another solid performance with 121 yards on the ground plus four catches for 16 yards. Him and Todd Gurley could be 1 and 1A in dynasty rankings.
Same goes for Antonio Brown with six catches for 124 yards. Another day at the office.
Linebacker Lawrence Timmons had 10 tackles and a half sack in another LB1 day.
Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had an average day with 249 yards and a touchdown plus two interceptions. More and more it looks like Bridgewater may not be making the leap to QB1 status.
Meanwhile, receiver Stefon Diggs caught seven passes for 129 yards. This after he caught six passes for 87 yards. He’s now starting thanks to an injury to Charles Johnson and could keep the job playing like this.
Linebacker Eric Kendricks had his best game so far with 10 tackles and a sack. Those are LB1 numbers if he can keep that up.
It was a dud of a debut for Charcandrick West as Jamaal Charles backup with just 33 yards on nine carries plus a fumble. It’s safe to say you don’t need to make any moves for him.
Tight end Travis Kelce continues to make due with five catches for 88 yards on seven targets. With the injury to Jeremy Maclin, maybe Kelce is in line for more targets.
Defensive lineman Allen Bailey had another big game with eight tackles and another sack. He’s quickly becoming a DL1/2 in dynasty formats.
