Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Giants 27, Cowboys 20

Giants

  • Running back Orleans Darkwa burst on the scene with 48 yards and a touchdown and looked like the best back on the team. He’ll be a popular waiver wire pickup in dynasty formats.
  • Linebacker Jon Beason has gotten off to a slow start this season but picked up 11 tackles and should be back on track as a LB2 in dynasty formats.

Cowboys

  • For some reason, Darren McFadden ran for 152 yards and a touchdown. Don’t think this is a resurgence. It’s not.
  • Tight end Jason Witten had another day at the office with six catches for 73 yards. He continues to be a reliable, low-end TE1 in dynasty formats.

  • Top seven remains the same with LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles, Doug Martin, Eddie Lacy, Adrian Peterson, Giovani Bernard, and Matt Forte. 
  • The big risers this month include Denver running back Montee Ball. With it becoming increasingly unlikely that Denver brings back incumbent Knowshon Moreno, it will be Ball’s job to lose. Another riser includes Oakland running back Latavius Murray. Currently at the top of the Oakland depth chart now that both Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings are free agents, Murray is 6′ 3″, 223 pounds, and ran a 4.38 40 in the combine last year. Murray could be special.
  • The big drops include the previously mentioned Moreno along with the previously mentioned McFadden. It also includes BenJarvus Green-Ellis of the Bengals. With Giovani Bernard expected to shoulder more of the load in 2014, BJGE’s role is going to diminish further.

  • Nothing new at the top. LeSean McCoy and Jamaal Charles will be your consensus 1-2 dynasty running backs heading in to 2014. 
  • A slight drop for Alfred Morris from 11th to 13th, possibly due to concerns with new coach Jay Gruden’s offense. Morris is probably not an RB1 in dynasty leagues but is an ideal RB2. 
  • Other drops include Darren McFadden from 23rd to 26th. There’s a lot of uncertainty with McFadden heading in 2014 – injuries, free agency, etc. There’s also BenJarvus Green-Ellis from Cincinnati who will take an even bigger back seat to Giovani Bernard
  • The biggest riser (again) is Cardinals running back Andre Ellington from 31st to 23rd. Ellington could be a RB1 in dynasty leagues when (if) he takes the reins.

Daily Dynasty Update – November 20th

  • 49ers rookie running back Marcus Lattimore has been cleared to practice. He won’t play in 2013 but it’s encouraging progress heading in 2014. Lattimore is a strong dynasty prospect in every sense of the word.
  • Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will be 100% healthy before the Eagles next game with Arizona. However, it’s hard to imagine Vick usurping Nick Foles at this point. Vick is almost at the point of being droppable. 
  • Raiders running back Rashad Jennings will still be involved with the offense when incumbent Darren McFadden comes back. Neither are strong dynasty players and both are free agents after 2013. Expect the Raiders to either re-sign McFadden at a bargain or move on.
  • Patriots running back Stevan Ridley lost another fumble Monday night. However, he was still in the game for a handful of plays after and was not completely in the dog house. I’d be nervous this off-season as a Ridley owner. You never know what the brain trust in New England is thinking.
