Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Falcons 10, Titans 7

Falcons

  • Running back Devonta Freeman continues to roll with 116 yards on the ground plus two catches for 14 yards. He’s been nothing short of a RB1 this year but I still wonder if he has true bell cow duties locked up for the foreseeable future.
  • Julio Jones had another solid outing with nine catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. He also had almost as many targets as the rest of the team. He’s an elite option at WR for dynasty leagues.

Titans

  • Running back Antonio Andrews took the lead in the Titans backfield with 57 yards on 10 carries. This is another situation where nothing can end well regarding the running backs. It’s best to just avoid.
  • Tight end Delanie Walker had seven catches for 55 yards and continues to be a sneaky, low-end TE1. If Marcus Mariota can progress, Walker can retain that value.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Colts destroy Titans, 41-17

  • Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is staking his claim as the top quarterback in dynasty with 393 yards and four touchdowns.
  • Titans tight end Delanie Walker had another good day with five catches for 84 yards and a touchdown. He continues to be a low-end TE1 as the top option in Tennessee.
  • Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton had a big day with six catches for 105 yards and a  touchdown. He keeps trending upward in dynasty leagues and should top out as a WR2 before it’s all set and done.
  • Meanwhile, veteran Colts receiver Reggie Wayne had seven catches for 119 yards and a touchdown. He’s a legit WR2 now but should be on the block for your dynasty team.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Cowboys beat Titans, 26-10

  • Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is making it hard to deny him as a RB1 in dynasty formats. He tore the Titans apart for 167 yards on the ground and a touchdown.
  • Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant did Dez Bryant things with 10 catches for 103 yards and a touchdown. He can make a claim for top WR in dynasty.
  • Titans tight end Delanie Walker busted out for 142 yards on 10 catches and a touchdown. Walker could be a decent safety valve for whoever is the quarterback in Tennessee and should top out as a high-end TE2.
  • Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain racked up seven tackles, a sack, and an interception. With as much as Dallas’ defense should be on the field, McClain could be a good play this year but not beyond.

  • Change to the top five this month with Redskins tight end Jordan Reed entering at number five. Reed’s stock is up thanks to new coach Jay Gruden’s pass-first mentality. The four before him include Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Julius Thomas, and Jordan Cameron.
  • Up this month is Cowboys tight end Gavin Escobar and Titans tight end Delanie Walker. Escobar should see more opportunities in Dallas with Jason Witten getting older. Delanie Walker is expected to see more targets in new coach Ken Whisenhunt’s offense. Walker is a decent buy-low candidate for 2014.
  • Lions tight end Joseph Fauria dropped a bit thanks to the Lions re-signing of fellow tight end Brandon Pettigrew. Fauria should pass Pettigrew on the depth chart sometime this season. The other drop is Tampa’s new tight end Brandon Myers. Myers had a terrible stint in New York and isn’t expected to do much better in Tampa. Even at 39 he’s not a recommended buy.

  • No big shakes in the top five – Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Julius Thomas, Jordan Cameron, and Vernon Davis are all there. These rankings should hold barring significant injury news on Gronk.
  • The big risers this month include Tim Wright from Tampa Bay, Delanie Walker from Tennessee, Brandon Bostick from Green Bay, and Mychal Rivera from Oakland. With the exception of Walker, all are young and are expected to see even more action in 2014. Bostick would be the guy that most leagues shouldn’t know about quite yet so get him if you can.
  • The big drops include Jared Cook of the Rams, Antonio Gates from San Diego, Brandon Pettigrew, who is set to be a free agent, Fred Davis, also set to be a free agent, and the ‘retiring’ Tony Gonzalez. Cook just fell off a cliff after a promising season opener. The Rams are expected to add even more weapons, diminishing Cook’s role. Brandon Pettigrew has had all the opportunity in the world with Detroit’s high-octane attack but hasn’t produced. Chances are low he’ll suddenly break out on another team. Fred Davis hasn’t produce since his breakout year  three years ago. Now rankings are taking in to account Tony Gonzalez’ retirement. But I won’t believe it until I see it. If you can snag Gonzalez for a late round pick in your draft, or something equivalent, do it.
