Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Panthers 24, Texans 17

Panthers

  • Cam Newton shouldered the load again with 195 yards and two touchdowns through the air and 76 more and a touchdown on the ground. Proving once again, Cam Newton does not need receivers to be successful.
  • Running back Jonathan Stewart had another average day with just 62 yards on 17 carries. It’s hard to tell if Stewart’s lack of production is due to the extra attention in the box thanks to zero outside or deep threats. Either way, Stewart can’t be trusted for more than RB3 value right now.
  • Meanwhile, tight end Greg Olsen did get back on track with six catches for 70 yards. He also paced the rest of the team with 14 targets. Olsen’s production should continue to have a decent floor.

Texans

  • It wasn’t the debut Ryan Mallet was hoping for with just 244 yards on 58 pass attempts plus one touchdown. With little prospects of a major infusion of talent, there’s no reason to keep Mallet on a dynasty roster.
  • The only bright spot was defensive end J.J. Watt’s continued dominance with five tackles, a sack and two passes defended.

Complete updated dynasty tight end rankings found here.

  • Top five remains the same just in a slightly different order: Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Travis Kelce, Greg Olsen now takes fourth while Julius Thomas drops back to fifth.
  • Only big riser this month would be Giants tight end Larry Donnell up to 19th from 22nd. That should hold as Donnell is only the 3-4 option in the Giants offense.
  • Rookies this month include Maxx Williams holding steady at 12 and Raiders rookie Clive Walford at 29th.

Updated Dynasty Tight End Rankings – March 2015

Updated tight rankings can be found here.

  • dwayneallen-coltsTop five remains the same with Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Travis Kelce, Julius Thomas, and Greg Olsen (he of the recent extension).
  • No major changes throughout the list except for Dwayne Allen to 14th from 17th. Of the two Colts tight ends, Allen is the one to own over Colby Fleener.
  • As far as rookies this past year, no one really set the world on fire so their rankings remain the same. However, of the big three from the 2014 class – Eric Ebron, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, and Jace Amaro – it looks like ASJ is ready to take the biggest step. With the probably arrival of Jameis Winston, ASJ will have a more competent  quarterback to get him the ball.

Dynasty Football Recap – Week 7 – Packers dominate Panthers, 38-17

  • Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had three more touchdowns and 255 yards. He’s battling Andrew Luck for QB1 dynasty rankings.
  • Packers receiver Randall Cobb continues his up and down season with six catches for 121 yards and a touchdown. We still wouldn’t trust him as a WR1 in dynasty formats but is still a boom-or-bust WR2.
  • Panthers tight end Greg Olsen continues his good season, leading the team with eight targets, eight catches for 105 yards.
