Dynasty Impact – Buffalo Bills select Sammy Watkins, WR

watkinsDynasty Impact: After trading up, the Bills got their man in the best wide receiver in the draft with Sammy Watkins. Not only showing a commitment to help E.J. Manual, Sammy Watkins is the best receiving prospect since Julio Jones, and provides the Bills with another playmaker alongside C.J. Spiller. He’ll start right away and, provided Manual can keep progressing, should be grabbed early in rookie dynasty drafts. Manual’s stock should also soar heading into 2014 dynasty leagues. Worst case scenario is the Bills dump Manual after not cutting it and getting another one for Watkins to catch passes from. Either way, Watkins will be a valuable commodity in 2014 dynasty drafts.

Daily Dynasty Update – January 21st

  • Falcons receiver Julio Jones is scheduled to be ready before training camp. That’s good news as Julio continues to be rated as a top-ten WR in dynasty leagues. He must stay healthy to stay there.
  • Patriots quarterback Tom Brady would like to see Julian Edelman back with the team in 2014. Dynasty owners of the free agent would to. New England is the only place where Edelman will retain his WR1 value in PPR dynasty leagues.
  • Look for the Bears to upgrade on Michael Bush at running back in the off-season. While initially, it may seem like a bad move for Matt Forte owners to have a more capable backup, it may lead to Forte lasting longer.
  • The Bills will hire a quarterbacks coach for the 2014 season in an effort to further along E.J. Manual’s progress. The Bills rolled without one last which was just one of the many issues the Bills offense had. The Chargers and Ken Whisenhunt are a good example of what happens when you hire a good offensive mind.

Dynasty Recap – Week 15 – Bills escape Jaguars, 27-20

  • Bills rookie quarterback E.J. Manual was efficient but uneven, going 17 of 24 for 193 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He also tacked on 37 yards rushing while losing a fumble. Manual will need to cut down the turnovers going forward if he’s going to continue to progress.
  • Jaguars running back Jordan Todman had 109 yards rushing on 25 carries and added four catches for 44 yards in place of Maurice Jones-DrewTodman did well to make his case to stick around after MJD is a free agent.
  • Bills rookie receiver Robert Woods had his best game in a couple of weeks with five catches for 82 yards and led the team with six targets. Hopefullly him and quarterback E.J. Manual can develop even more in the off-season.
  • Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny had another double-digit tackle game with 13 with a sack. There’s few middle linebackers getting more opportunities than Pos right now. He’s a solid LB1.

Dynasty Recap – Week 14 – Buccaneers beat up Bills, 27-6

  • Bills rookie quarterback E.J. Manual was just bad. Going 18 of 33 for 184 yards, a 5.6 YPA, zero touchdowns and four interceptions. Manual wishes this season would end soon so he can improve upon it.
  • Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey ran for 127 yards on 22 carries and a touchdown. Rainey is the third running back to be featured in Tampa’s offense this season after injuries depleted them. Even though he’s just 26, don’t expect Rainey to have any dynasty value after this season.
  • Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David was all sorts of awesome with nine tackles, a sack, two tackles for a loss, two passes defended and two interceptions. He’s a bona fide LB1 in dynasty circles.

Daily Dynasty Update – November 30th

  • Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is on pace for a career-high in touches. That’s music to re-draft owners of McCoy but not dynasty leaguers. It’ll be close to 1,000 touches in the last three years for McCoy. Dynasty leaguers need to be cautious with McCoy in the near future.
  • Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar will be out for the season after a knee injury suffered in the  Thanksgiving day game. Dunbar, averaging 5.0 YPC this season, was doing well as the change-of-pace back behind DeMarco Murray. Dunbar faces rookie Joseph Randle for that role in 2014 along with any other options the Jerry Jones regime brings in.
  • The Bills are encouraging rookie quarterback E.J. Manual to let it loose in the passing game. They likely want to see what they have at quarterback and sooner rather than later. The same could be said for dynasty league owners of Manual.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Bills destroy Jets, 37-14

  • Bills rookie quarterback E.J. Manual had an excellent day, going 20 of 28 for 245 yards and two touchdowns no turnovers. It’s too bad Manual was injured earlier in the year but it looks like he’ll stick around.
  • Jets running back Chris Ivory had 98 rushing yards on 15 carries and a touchdown. It’s his second straight solid outing and should endear him to Jets coaches heading in to next year.
  • Bills rookie receiver Marquise Goodwin had his best day with six catches for 81 yards and a touchdown. Goodwin got more action due to Stevie Johnson’s injury but hopefully he can see more.
  • Bills safety Jairus Byrd had a big day with four tackles, a sack, two passes defended and two interceptions. Whether he stays in Buffalo or moves on next year, Byrd is a solid option at defensive back and even more in big play leagues.
