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 6 – Saints 31, Falcons 21

Saints

  • It was a throwback game for Drew Brees as he throws for 312 yards on 30 of 39 passing and a touchdown. It’s a rare good week for Brees but we still consider him a fringe-level QB1 in dynasty formats.
  • Saints rookie receiver Willie Snead had another solid game with four catches for 55 yards. He’s averaging over 70 yards a game through his first six games and could be a long-term replacement for Marques Colton.
  • Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe had a big day with 14 tackles. He can be one of the few player makers on an otherwise weak Saints defense and could carry LB2 value in dynasty leagues.

Falcons

  • Matt Ryan had another good day with 295 yards and two touchdowns. He’s squarely in the mid-QB1 conversation in dynasty.
  • Devonta Freeman had another good day with 100 yards and a touchdown on just 13 carries. He also added eight catches for 56 yards and a touchdown. We don’t see Freeman being a three-down back going forward but should firmly stay as the receiving back which has plenty of value in PPR leagues.
  • Defensive end Adrian Clayborn had a sack and has two on the season. The 27-year old could be a decent DL3 option in dynasty as part of a weak Falcons defense.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Falcons 48, Texans 21

Falcons

  • It was the Devonta Freeman show (again) with 68 yards rushing and three touchdowns plus five catches for 81 yards. He’s playing with RB1 numbers at the moment but we’d still hold off on that assessment in dynasty rankings.
  • In the passing game, it was Leonard Hankerson who had the big day with six catches for 103 yards and a touchdown. Hankerson has officially passed Roddy White on the depth chart and is a solid WR4 in dynasty circles.

Texans

  • The only real performance to speak of was DeAndre Hopkins with nine catches for 157 yards on an incredible 22 targets. He’s literally the only positive on the Texans offense this year and a legit low-end WR1 in dynasty formats.
  • On defense, J.J. Watt was still effective with four tackles, a sack and two passes defended. He’s the top IDP player in any dynasty format.
