Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Jets 34, Redskins 20

Jets 

  • Running back Chris Ivory continues to bulldoze teams with 146 more yards plus a touchdown. He’s now averaging over 110 yards per game and is a rock solid RB2 in dynasty formats despite his relative old age of 27.
  • Receiver Brandon Marshall continues to dominate with seven more catches for 111 yards and a touchdown. He’s shown no signs of slowing down after being traded from Chicago and should be considered a high-end WR2 in dynasty formats.
  • Defensive end Sheldon Richardson had a half sack in his return to the Jets from suspension. He may have lost value sitting out the first four games but should be considered a DL2 in dynasty formats. He’s still only 24 but, currently, plays on a good, young Jets defense.

Redskins

  • Rookie receiver Jamison Crowder caught four passes for 40 yards in a bad game for the entire offense. He should be scaled back as DeSean Jackson returns from injury but Crowder could be an asset next year.
  • Reserve tight end Derek Carrier had his best game of the year with four catches for 39 yards. Carrier is only playing thanks to injuries to Jordan Reed and Niles Paul but could be a good reserve for your dynasty team.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Jets 27, Dolphins 14

Jets

  • Running back Chris Ivory bulldozed his way to 166 yards and a touchdown. He’s playing more like a low-end RB1 this year but is a definite RB2 in dynasty rankings as he should continue to be the focal point of the running game in New York.
  • Receiver Brandon Marshall is also playing like a top option at his position with seven catches for 128 yards. Despite being 31, you could roll with him as your WR2 in dynasty rankings.

Dolphins

  • Everyone looked bad today, led by quarterback Ryan Tannehill with 198 yards passing with two touchdowns and two interceptions. We just don’t see him as a reliable QB1 in any format.
  • Thanks to Tannehill’s lackluster performance, Jarvis Landry could never get off the ground with only four catches for 40 yards despite 12 targets. Landry will need more volume to be fantasy relevant.
  • On the bright side, safety Reshad Jones continues to be one of the to DB’s in dynasty IDP leagues. He racked up 11 tackles to lead the team.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Jets 31, Browns 10

Jets

  • The biggest star for New York was running back Chris Ivory who ran for 91 yards on just 20 carries plus two touchdowns plus a nine-yard catch. Ivory should continue to produce at RB2 levels and, at just 27 with plenty of tread left on the tires, should be a RB3 in dynasty rankings.
  • Receiver Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in his debut. It’s a good start but at 31, Marshall’s best days are behind him. We would rank him as a WR3-4 in dynasty rankings.

Browns

  • Filling in for start Josh McCownJohnny Manziel flopped in his 2015 debut with 182 yards on 13 of 24 passing with one touchdown and three turnovers (1 interception; 2 fumbles lost). Much like his fellow 2014 first-round pick Blake Bortles, I think it’s time to pull the plug.
  • Also flopping in his season debut, running back Isaiah Crowell gained all of 20 yards on 12 carries. He was facing a good defense in New York but it’s not a promising start especially with rookie Duke Johnson right behind him on the depth chart.

Updated Dynasty Running Back Rankings – September 2015

Complete updated dynasty running back rankings found here.

  • New addition to the top five with Jeremy Hill sneaking in. Le’Veon Bell, Eddie Lacy, Jamaal Charles, and Todd Gurley stay the same.
  • Biggest risers include Chris Ivory to 32nd from 43rd; Matt Jones to 40th from 54th as one of the most promising rookies; Joseph Randle to 41st from 53rd which might be high with the recent trade of Christine MichaelAlfred Blue to 49th from 58th as Arian Foster continues to get injured; Panthers rookies Cameron Artis-Payne to 54th from 63rd; Danny Woodhead to 55th from 64th after healing from a season-ending injury; Bills rookie Karlos Williams to 58th as LeSean McCoy’s primary backup now; and Colts rookie Josh Robinson up to 60th now that he’s Frank Gore’s primary backup.
  • Biggest drops this month include Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon down from 30th to 38th thanks to the return of Adrian Peterson; Joique Bell from 33rd to 42nd thanks to the emergency of Ameer Abdullah; new Titans running back Terrance West 39th to 52nd; and Ravens rookie Buck Allen from 48th to 57th after showing nothing in the pre-season among others.

Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Patriots escape Jets, 27-25

  • Patriots quarterback Tom Brady continues to string together solid performances with 261 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. If he keeps this up, he’ll re-enter the low-end QB1 conversation.
  • Jets running back Chris Ivory put on a clinic with 107 yards rushing and a touchdown to go along with four catches and 18 yards. If they keep giving him the ball, he’s squarely in the RB2 conversation.
  • Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had another solid day with five catches and 68 yards while leading the team with 10 targets. And while Gronkowski is clearly a TE1, it’s hard to view him as the elite option he used to be.
  • Patriots linebacker Jamie Collins had a breakout game with 13 tackles, his most in a game this season. Collins was expected to be a LB2 candidate this season but hasn’t shown it yet. Maybe this game will be the start.

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.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Jets sloppily beat Raiders, 19-14

  • Jets quarterback Geno Smith had an up and down day going 23 of 28 for 221 yards, a touchdown, an interception and a lost fumble. It’s looking more and more like that’s what a typical Geno Smith day will look like. He can be downgraded in dynasty.
  • The Jets running game was split with Chris Ivory going for 10 and 102 yards (and a touchdown) and Chris Johnson getting 13 carries for 68 yards. Johnson added five catches for 23 points and a touchdown. Johnson would be the better play in PPR leagues.
  • Eric Decker left no doubt about who the top receiver is in New York with five catches for 74 yards and led the team in targets.
  • A bright spot for the Raiders was on the IDP side with linebacker Sio Moore racking up 13 tackles and a sack. With those numbers, Moore could be a LB2 in dynasty leagues.
