Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Patriots 30, Jets 23

Patriots 

  • Tom Brady keeps on rolling with 355 yards and two touchdowns. He’s so far ahead of most quarterbacks that, despite the age, he has to be a top-five dynasty QB.
  • Likewise, Rob Gronkowski had 11 catches for 108 yards and a touchdown. He’s dynasty’s top TE. Period.
  • On defense, linebacker Jamie Collins led the way with 12 tackles plus a sack. He should be considered a LB1 in dynasty IDP formats.

Jets

  • Even though he’s not the long-term answer, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a solid option this season. Today, he had 295 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. It’s possible you could sell him this year to a win-now team.
  • Receiver Eric Decker continues to provide value under the radar with six catches for 94 yards and a team-high 12 targets. Decker has succeeded despite changes in coaches and quarterbacks.
  • Defensive end Sheldon Richardson added another sack in his second game back. He’s a DL1 when healthy and playing but it’s anyone’s  guess if he’ll be back with New York next year. I might try to sell high.

Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Chiefs Jets, 24-10

  • Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith had a decent day with 199 yards passing and two touchdowns. Smith will never be better than a low-end QB2.
  • Jets receiver Percy Harvin had a big day with 11 catches for 129 yards on 13 targets. If this was indicative of things to come, Harvin could finally break out unlike anytime when he was in Seattle.
  • The other Jets receiver, Eric Decker had nine catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. Decker has quietly had a solid season and should benefit from a new quarterback in New York next year.
  • Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston had two more sacks to add to his league-leading total and is on pace to break the all-time record. He continues to be a LB2 with LB1 upside.

Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Denver takes care of the Jets, 31-17

  • Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had a slow day by his standards with 237 yards and three touchdowns. He’ll be an elite option in dynasty for the 2-3 years he has left.
  • Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas continued his hot streak with 10 catches for 124 yards and a touchdown. He’ll continue to be an elite option as long as Peyton is there.
  • Jets rookie tight end Jace Amaro had his best game of the year with 10 catches for 68 yards on 12 targets. There just isn’t another target in New York besides Eric Decker which means Amaro should continue to rack up targets.
  • Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson had a big day for a lineman with eight tackles and a sack. He’s gotten off to a bit of a slow start but is no worse than a DL2 in dynasty formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Packers come back against Jets, 31-24

  • Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was in top form with 346 yards and three touchdowns. Thanks to his production and age (unlike Drew Brees and Peyton Manning), he’s the consensus QB1 in dynasty formats.
  • The primary beneficiary was receiver Jordy Nelson at nine catches for 209 yards on a staggering 16 targets. Thanks to his extension, Nelson is a consensus WR1 in all dynasty formats.
  • Meanwhile, Jets receiver Eric Decker was having a nice day with four catches, 63 yards and a touchdown before getting injured. Decker is proving he can be a reliable WR2/3 in dynasty formats even with questionable quarterback play.
  • Packers safety Morgan Burnett had another great day with 11 tackles and a pass defended. He’s a legit DB1 in all dynasty formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Jets sloppily beat Raiders, 19-14

  • Jets quarterback Geno Smith had an up and down day going 23 of 28 for 221 yards, a touchdown, an interception and a lost fumble. It’s looking more and more like that’s what a typical Geno Smith day will look like. He can be downgraded in dynasty.
  • The Jets running game was split with Chris Ivory going for 10 and 102 yards (and a touchdown) and Chris Johnson getting 13 carries for 68 yards. Johnson added five catches for 23 points and a touchdown. Johnson would be the better play in PPR leagues.
  • Eric Decker left no doubt about who the top receiver is in New York with five catches for 74 yards and led the team in targets.
  • A bright spot for the Raiders was on the IDP side with linebacker Sio Moore racking up 13 tackles and a sack. With those numbers, Moore could be a LB2 in dynasty leagues.

Daily Dynasty Update – March 13th

  • The Jets have their receiver in Eric Decker, who signed for five years and $36.5 million. Obviously a downgrade without Peyton Manning, Decker is still the top receiving option on a team so will warrant some consideration in dynasty leagues. He’s also on a young team that can develop. Currently, he’s no more than a WR3 until he proves otherwise.
  • Golden Tate is now in Detroit, which should immediately boost his dynasty value. Being in a high-powered passing offense, instead of the run-heavy Seattle offense, will allow Tate to hit career numbers. He could be a WR2 candidate for a few years.
  • Kevin Minter dynasty owners might be rewarded in 2014 with the depature of Karlos Dansby. He’s expected to fill the every-down role Dansby occupied last year and could be a LB1/2.
  • Josh McCown currently sits as the starter in Tampa after signing with them. 35 at the beginning of the season, McCown is a short-term dynasty option, at best. Luckily, Vincent Jackson and Doug Martin won’t suffer as McCown’s not necessarily a downgrade from the likes of Mike Glennon.
  • DeMarcus Ware is now in Denver and, if healthy, should be a fine LB2 playing across Von Miller for at least a year or two.
