Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Redskins 31, Buccaneers 30

Redskins

  • Kirk Cousins had one of the best games of his career with 317 passing yards and three touchdowns plus zero interceptions. Despite the game, it’s doubtful Cousins is the long-term solution for anyone.
  • Jordan Reed came back from injury with 11 catches for 72 yards and two touchdowns proving he can be a TE1 when healthy. So much risk however.
  • Rookie receiver Jamison Crowder continues to fill in nicely for the injured DeSean Jackson with five catches for 48 yards. He could be an interesting dynasty stash even when Jackson returns.

Buccaneers

  • Rookie Jameis Winston had a solid day with 297 yards and two touchdowns. He’s up to nine touchdowns on the season and should only get better with a healthy Mike Evans.
  • Doug Martin continues to bounce back with 136 yards on the ground plus three catches for 35 yards. He’s played like a RB1 this year but is a free agent after the season. You may want to sell high while you can.
  • Mike Evans had his best game of the year with eight catches for 164 yards and a touchdown. He’s struggled through injuries this year but should be back on track as a WR1.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Panthers 37, Buccaneers 23

Panthers

  • Cam Newton continues to produce despite the lack of talent around him. He had only 124 passing yards but had two touchdowns through the air plus another 51 yards rushing. I have seen the light and it’s Newton. He’s a bona fide, elite QB1 in dynasty.
  • The only other standout performance would be linebacker Thomas Davis with 11 tackles and one interception. He’s a solid LB1 option in IDP dynasty leagues and should have at least 2-3 years left.

Buccaneers

  • Rookie quarterback Jameis Winston was bad with 287 passing yards and two touchdowns but four interceptions. Winston has to cut down the turnovers if he’s going to be a QB1.
  • Doug Martin had a nice bounce back game with 106 yards and a touchdown plus five catches for 37 yards. It was his best game of the year but we’d like to see a few more games like this to make Martin a reliable RB2.
  • Veteran receiver Vincent Jackson had a huge day with 10 catches for 147 yards and a touchdown. Jackson continues to be steady as a WR3 in dynasty leagues but you may want to sell high.

Daily Dynasty Update – October 8th

  • reedRedskins tight end Jordan Reed may actually play this week. His stock has probably taken a hit in dynasty leagues due to the fact the can’t stay on the field. However, he is a good buy-low candidate.
  • Bucs coaches continue to claim that Doug Martin is safe but his production doesn’t show it. We can’t reasonably view him as a RB1 until he starts performing like one.
  • Vikings running back Adrian Peterson should be on trial as soon as December 1. Since that’s the earliest Peterson can clear his name, we don’t expect him to play this year. His future value is in serious doubt as well.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Rams escape Bucs, 19-17

  • New (?) Bucs running back Bobby Rainey ran wild with 144 yards on 22 carries plus three catches for 30 yards. With Doug Martin hurt, and in the dog house, Rainey should produce this year but we wouldn’t count on hims as a dynasty option…yet.
  • The good news for Zac Stacy owners is he carried the ball three times as much as Benny Cunningham. The bad news was it was only for 3.7 YPC and 71 yards total. Stacy continues to be a volume runner that shouldn’t be considered anything more than a RB2 in dynasty.
  • Rams receiver Brian Quick continues to have a strong outings, leading the team in targets, catches and yards with seven for 74 yards on nine targets. The Rams aren’t expected to contend this year which could lead to garbage time stats for Quick. Quick will be around St. Louis for at least one more year and could benefit even more with better quarterback play.
