Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Giants 24, Bills 10

Giants

  • Eli Manning had another decent outing with 212 passing yards and three touchdowns to go with one interception. Eli will always be a middle-tier QB2 in dynasty formats but could have good days with Odell Beckham in the mix.
  • Speaking of, ODB had just five catches for 38 yards on 12 targets. Beckham’s rookie year was always seen as a fluke but he was still expected to be a WR1. You can’t say that one month into his sophomore season.

Bills

  • Rookie running back Karlos Williams had just 40 yards on 18 carries but with the Giants ahead big for most of the game, there was no need to run the ball for Buffalo. Williams will do better.
  • Tight end Charles Clay continued his roll with nine catches for 111 yards on 13 targets. Without Sammy Watkins, Clay was Tyrod Taylors favorite target but he could enter the low-end TE1 conversation with more performances like this.
  • Safety Corey Graham had 13 tackles and a sack in another DB1 performance. He’s had double-digit tackles in three straight games and should be considered a good DB in IDP dynasty formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Falcons 24, Giants 20

Falcons

  • Quarterback Matt Ryan went off with 363 yards and a touchdown. More days like this will push him squarely in the top five of dynasty quarterbacks.
  • His favorite receiver, Julio Jones, caught 13 passes for 135 yards on 15 targets. Jones can absolutely make the case for being dynasty’s top receiver.  
  • Rookie pass rusher Vic Beasley had five tackles and a sack in his second career game. It’s a good start for Beasley where he should be considered a DL4 but can easily top out as a DL2.

Giants

  • Despite the close losses, quarterback Eli Manning is still performing well with 292 yards and two touchdowns. He’s probably not a sure-fire QB1 in dynasty rankings but he’s a high-end QB2.
  • As Manning goes, those around him go like running back Shane Vereen. He caught eight balls for 76 yards and ran for 19 more. In PPR leagues, Vereen is a solid RB3.
  • Of course, the top dog in New York is Odell Beckham who turned in a 7/146/1 line today. He’s a top five dynasty option at WR and will be for a while.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Cowboys 27, Giants 26

Cowboys

  • Tony Romo was his usual gunslinger self with 356 yards and three touchdowns (plus two interceptions). He’s, at worst, a low-end QB1 in dynasty leagues but has room to grow now that Dallas has little depth at running back.
  • Speaking of, Joseph Randle had a decent day on the ground with 65 rushing yards plus three catches for 42 yards. This may be a best-case scenario for Randle throughout the season which makes him a RB2 in dynasty, at best.
  • The main beneficiary of Dez Bryant’s absence had to be tight end Jason Witten with eight catches for 60 yards and two touchdowns. Witten’s stats have gone down the last three seasons but he could be due for a resurgence without DeMarco Murray carrying the load. He’s a low-end TE1.

Giants

  • An all-around bad night for the Giants started with Eli Manning. Going only 20 of 36 for 193 yards isn’t good for anyone. It’s only one game but Eli is still a QB2.
  • With Eli turning in a clunker, Odell Beckham did too with just five catches for 44 yards. Beckham is rated as a WR1 in dynasty leagues but it might not be a bad idea to see him have another great year before anointing him as such.
  • Very little going on in the run game as well with lead back Rashad Jennings going for 52 yards on 13 carries. Andre Williams got six carries so Jennings is, by no means, a bell cow. His ceiling will be a RB3.

Updated Dynasty Quarterback Rankings – August 2015

Complete updated dynasty quarterback rankings can be found here.

  • Top five remains the same: Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Cam Newton, and Matthew Stafford. Quarterback continues to be the most consistent position in dynasty which means a top option is not as easy to acquire. Hold on for dear life if you have one.
  • Biggest risers this month both come from the NFC East with Eli Manning to 18th from 21st; Robert Griffin to 23rd from 26th.
  • Biggest drop is (ex?) Bills quarterback Matt Cassel from 37th to 43rd. No Bills quarterback is a good option. None.

Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Cowboys beat Giants, 31-21

  • Giants quarterback Eli Manning had another throwback game with 248 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. Manning keeps making a play for low-end QB1 play but in dynasty is probably still a QB2.
  • Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray continues his hot streak with 128 yards and a touchdown. He’s fantasy’s top running back this year and is moving into the elite status.
  • Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant did his thing with nine catches and 151 yards. He’s our top dynasty receiver going forward.
  • With Victor Cruz out, Giants tight end Larry Donnell took advantage with seven catches for 90 yards. Donnell has come out of nowhere to be a low-end TE1 this year but should be at leafs a TE2 in dynasty formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Giants beat Falcons 30-20

  • Giants quarterback Eli Manning continues to become more efficient with 200 yards and two touchdowns. With new personnel, it’s possible Manning regains his QB2 look but we’ll wait and see.
  • Falcons receiver Julio Jones continues to show why he’s a top end WR in dynasty with 11 catches for 105 yards on 16 targets. He can’t be stopped.
  • Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham had a solid debut with four catches for 44 yards and a touchdown. It’s a promising debut albeit against a bad defense.
  • Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow continues to rack up the tackles with 14. He’s averaging 12 tackles a game while the defense continues to struggle.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Giants trounce Redskins, 45-14

  • Don’t call it a comeback but Giants quarterback Eli Manning looked decent, throwing for 300 yards, four touchdowns and an interception plus a rushing touchdown. He’s still no better than a low-end QB2 but his arrow is point up.
  • On the other side of the field, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins threw four picks. Cousins appears to be turnover prone and shouldn’t be counted on for anything yet.
  • Giants receiver Victor Cruz had his second 100-yard game in a row and is looking like the WR2 he was before the season. As Eli goes, so goes Victor.
  • Breaking out was Giants tight end Larry Donnell with seven catches for 54 yards and three touchdowns. If Donnell keeps this up, he’s a low-end TE1.
