Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Broncos 31, Chiefs 24

Broncos

  • He may not be the same old Peyton Manning but he’s still pretty good. On 45 pass attempts, he had just 256 yards but made that up with three touchdowns.
  • Meanwhile, his receivers aren’t going anywhere either with Demaryius Thomas catching eight balls for 116 yards and Emmanuel Sanders catching eight for 87 yards and two touchdowns. Thomas should still be considered a low-end WR1 for dynasty purposes but ring as much fantasy value as you can out of Sanders.
  • The running game is not performing as everyone thought they might with just 61 yards between Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson. As long as the Broncos keep winning, it’s doubtful they switch to the run.

Chiefs

  • Not much to get excited about except for Jamaal Charles. He ran for 125 yards and a touchdown but did have two costly fumbles. Regardless, Charles is still a RB1 in dynasty circles thanks to his rock-solid status as the starter.
  • Receiver Jeremy Maclin had just four catches for 57 yards on seven targets. Unfortunately, that may be the typical stat line for Maclin in Kansas City.
  • In IDP land, linebacker Justin Houston had two more sacks because THAT IS ALL JUSTIN HOUSTON DOES. He’s a top linebacker in IDP leagues, especially in big-play leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Broncos 19, Ravens 13

Broncos

  • Peyton Manning’s bad day was part of a trend for Denver. Manning had only 175 yards plus an interception. Whether it’s the decreased arm strength or something else, Manning can’t be counted on to be a QB1 right now.
  • In the running game, Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson had the same amount of carries. Good for Hillman, not good for Anderson. It remains to be seen if that trend continues.
  • The receiving game didn’t have much to show with Demaryius Thomas catching seven for 60 and Emmanuel Sanders catching eight for 65. No receiver should be counted on to be a WR1 until Manning’s issues are sorted out.

Ravens

  • It was bad.

  • Top five has a slightly different order with Dez Bryant and Julio Jones the same at the top but Antonio Brown now third with A.J. Green and Demaryius Thomas behind them.
  • This year’s rookie class includes several fine options including Amari Cooper at 15; Kevin White at 18; DeVante Parker at 20; Nelson Algholor at 27; Dorial Green-Beckham at 29; Breshad Perriman at 30; Jaelen Strong at 44; Philip Dorsett at 51; Tyler Lockett at 58; and Devin Funchess at 60.
  • Notable drops include Justin Blackmon from 47th to 59th, no doubt thanks to the news that the Jags are ready to cut ties with him; and Terrance Williams from 51st to 63rd, primarily to the improvement of slot-man Cole Beasley.

Updated Dynasty Wide Receiver Rankings – April 2015

Complete updated dynasty wide receiver rankings can be found here

  • It’s been awhile since our last rankings but above is the final look at wide receivers before the 2015 NFL Draft. The updated top five is now Dez Bryant, Julio Jones, A.J. Green, Demaryius Thomas, and Antonio Brown.
  • Interesting notes are Calvin Johnson not only dropping from the top spot but out of the top five completely.
  • Four of last year’s rookies, all first round picks are in the top 15: Odell Beckham at 7, Mike Evans at 8, Sammy Watkins at 12, and Kelvin Benjamin at 15. This year’s rookie class is talented too but we may have reached the apex of top receiver talent with so many out there.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Rams upset Broncos 22-7

  • Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had a disappointing day with 373 yards and one touchdown along with two interceptions. This day was an anomaly as Manning should still be considered an elite option.
  • Rams rookie running back Tre Mason had an ok day with 29 carries and 113 yards but a sub-4.0 YPC. It was a Zac Stacy-like day and Mason should be careful.
  • Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas had another 100-yard game with seven catches for 103 yards. Thomas is at the top of the receiver class as long as Peyton is in town.
  • Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree had a big day with 13 tackles, two passes defended and an interception. Ogletree is more valuable in big play IDP leagues where he should be considered a LB2.

Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Patriots blow out Broncos, 43-21

  • Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had another big game with 333 yards and four touchdowns plus an interception. He should be a low-end QB1 with potential for more.
  • On the other side of the field Peyton Manning had 438 yards and two touchdowns to go with two interceptions. He still has elite QB1 status.
  • Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had another huge day with nine catches and 105 yards and a touchdown. He’s not only a TE1 but is probably more a WR1.
  • Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders had a big day with 10 catches for 151 yards but no touchdowns. He’ll continue to be a low-end WR2 as long as he’s in Denver.
  • Likewise, Demaryius Thomas had a big day with seven catches for 127 yards. Another WR1 day
