Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Raiders 37, Chargers 29

Raiders

  • Quarterback Derek Carr had another good game with 289 yards plus three touchdowns and no turnovers. He’s not quite at the QB1 level but he’s firmly in the QB2 conversation.
  • Rookie receiver Amari Cooper caught five passes for 133 yards and a touchdown. He’s well on his way to WR1 status.
  • Linebacker Malcolm Smith had a big day with 11 tackles, a sack and an interception. He’s played like a LB1 this year and should level out as a solid LB2 for dynasty purposes.

Chargers

  • Quarterback Philip Rivers had another big day with 336 yards plus three touchdowns and two interceptions. He’ll continue to put up QB1 numbers and should be considered as such in dynasty formats.
  • Receiver Keenan Allen continues his bounce back season with nine catches for 89 yards. As long as Rivers is around, Allen should be a rock solid WR2 in dynasty formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Bears 22, Raiders 20

Bears

  • Jay Cutler had a decent day with 281 yards plus two touchdowns and an interception. He’s still nowhere close to a QB1.
  • Meanwhile, Matt Forte keeps producing with 91 yards rushing plus for four catches for 64 yards. He’s still one of the more reliable running backs in dynasty but we still might sell high before it’s too late. Once he loses his job, he’ll lose it for good.
  • Tight end Martellus Bennett had a great game with 11 catches for 83 yards and a touchdown. As the best receiving threat in Chicago, Bennett is in the middle TE1 conversation right now and should be considered a low-end TE1 in dynasty ranks.

Raiders

  • Derek Carr had another inefficient game with 196 yards on 33 attempts but did have two touchdowns. He will never be a QB1 in dynasty formats.
  • Running back Latavius Murray had just 49 yards on 16 carries and was apparently benched because of a fumble. This won’t help his already shaky RB2 status.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Raiders 37, Ravens 33

Raiders

  • Another reclamation project with quarterback Derek Carr having a big day with 351 yards and three touchdowns. It’ll certainly help his dynasty value but Carr will never exceed QB2 status.
  • Not a big day from Latavius Murray with 65 yards on 15 carries but he had all of the Raiders rushes but two. He’s the clear starter for this year which gives him RB2/3 status.
  • Raiders rookie Amari Cooper is already paying dividends with seven catches for 109 yards and a touchdown. Now Cooper owners just need every Raiders game to be a shootout.

Ravens

  • Being a shootout, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had the numbers to go with it with 384 yards and two touchdowns. Unfortunately, this game was atypical and shouldn’t be repeated, keeping Flacco in the low-end QB2 conversation.
  • Receiver Steve Smith just keeps on trucking with ten catches for 150 yards. Being the only receiving threat in Baltimore, Smith could flirt with WR2 status in re-draft leagues but it’s hard to imagine him keeping this up beyond this year.

Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Cardinals beat Raiders, 24-13

  • Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer had a decent day with 253 yards and two touchdowns with an interception. Palmer is up there in age but should be a decent QB2 as long as he plays.
  • Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr had a bad day with 173 yards passing on 16 of 28 passing. He was playing a good defense but his prospects are entirely up in the air for next year.
  • Cardinals running back Andre Ellington had a big day with 88 yards to go with six catches and 72 yards. He’s a legit low-end RB1 in dynasty formats.
  • Raiders rookie linebacker Khalil Mack had a season-high 11 tackles in the loss but has yet to record a sack. It’s early but Mack doesn’t look like the LB2 he was touted to be.
