Dynasty Update – Week 1 – Cardinals 31, Saints 19

Cardinals

  • Quarterback Carson Palmer had a huge day with 307 yards and three touchdowns. He should be a QB2 for as long as he’s around.
  • The Cardinals went with a committee at running back but it should be apparent that Andre Ellington is the better option over re-tread Chris Johnson. Ellington had 69 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown before spraining his PCL. Johnson had only 37 yards on 10 carries.
  • In the receiving game, veteran Larry Fitzgerald led the way with six catches and 87 yards. He could end up at WR3-4 value in dynasty rankings.
  • Safety Tryann Mathieu had a great game with eight tackles and three passes defended. He’s a high upside DB1 in IDP dynasty leagues.

Saints

  • Quarterback Drew Brees had a very typical game with 355 yards passing and a touchdown and interception. Despite the loss of Jimmy Graham, it looks like Brees will still put up gaudy passing numbers. He’s a mid-tier QB1 in dynasty rankings.
  • Running back Mark Ingram had a horrible game on the ground with just 24 yards rushing. However, he did haul in eight catches for 98 yards. He’ll need to boost his rushing yardage as CJ Spiller will take over the passing back role when he returns.

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.
