Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Dolphins 44, Texans 26

Dolphins

  • Ryan Tannehill was about as perfect as you could get, going 18/19 for 282 yards and four touchdowns. We still can’t pull the trigger on Tannehill as a QB1 in dynasty but this doesn’t hurt.
  • Meanwhile, running back Lamar Miller is making a case to be a RB1 with 175 yards on the ground plus three catches for 61 yards and two total touchdowns. He’s been running wild in the two games since the Dolphins fired Joe Philbin. Maybe this is a sign of things to come.
  • Jarvis Landry had a very un-Jarvis Landry-like game with five catches for 83 yards and two touchdowns. In PPR dynasty leagues, he can be a solid WR2/3.

Texans

  • Not much to like including the Achilles tear sustained by Arian Foster. He gained 59 yards on the ground plus caught five passes for 66 yards and another touchdown before going down, probably for the season and beyond.
  • DeAndre Hopkins had only six catches for 50 yards. No reason to worry as he should bounce back next week.
  • On the defensive side, Jadeveon Clowney had his best game with 8 tackles and a sack. Hopefully it’ll kickstart a productive season.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Jets 27, Dolphins 14

Jets

  • Running back Chris Ivory bulldozed his way to 166 yards and a touchdown. He’s playing more like a low-end RB1 this year but is a definite RB2 in dynasty rankings as he should continue to be the focal point of the running game in New York.
  • Receiver Brandon Marshall is also playing like a top option at his position with seven catches for 128 yards. Despite being 31, you could roll with him as your WR2 in dynasty rankings.

Dolphins

  • Everyone looked bad today, led by quarterback Ryan Tannehill with 198 yards passing with two touchdowns and two interceptions. We just don’t see him as a reliable QB1 in any format.
  • Thanks to Tannehill’s lackluster performance, Jarvis Landry could never get off the ground with only four catches for 40 yards despite 12 targets. Landry will need more volume to be fantasy relevant.
  • On the bright side, safety Reshad Jones continues to be one of the to DB’s in dynasty IDP leagues. He racked up 11 tackles to lead the team.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Jaguars 23, Dolphins 20

Jaguars

  • A week after looking like a bust, quarterback Blake Bortles bounced back, slightly, with 273 yards and two touchdowns. Still not a whole lot to get excited about until he does this consistently.
  • Rookie running back T.J. Yeldon didn’t do a whole lot to prove his worth as a first round rookie pick with 70 rushing yards on 25 carries. He’s the lead back, for now, so he still retains RB2/3 value in dynasty leagues but make sure he gets into gear soon.
  • A Jag that didn’t disappoint was receiver Allen Robinson with six catches for 155 yards and two touchdowns. I didn’t believe it before but Robinson is quickly showing his WR2/3 status in dynasty rankings.

Dolphins

  • Another redemption story was quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who went off in the loss with 359 yards plus two touchdowns. Those would be QB1 numbers I just don’t know how often Tannehill gets there.
  • Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry had another big PPR day with eight catches for 110 yards. He led the team in targets and is easily Tannehill’s favorite receiver. As long as that stays true, Landry could knock on the WR2 door for dynasty as well.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Dolphins 17, Redskins 10

Dolphins

  • Quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a good, not great, game going 22 of 34 for 226 yards and a touchdown and a lost fumble. Tannehill had plenty of hype heading into the season but didn’t show any of that in Week 1.
  • Running back Lamar Miller also had a pedestrian day with 53 yards on 13 carries plus a lone catch for 22 yards. Miller is a no-doubter as far as a lead back but don’t expect RB1 numbers. He can be considered a solid RB2 in dynasty rankings.
  • If you have receiver Jarvis Landry in a PPR league, he earned his keep with eight catches on 53 yards. This will be how Landry rolls all year – several catches for not many yards. He’s only a WR3 in PPR formats.
  • New tight end Jordan Cameron had a nice debut with four catches for 73 yards. He’ll be used a lot down the seam and could have low-end TE1 value in dynasty if he keeps this up.
  • Safety Reshad Jones had a huge day with 12 tackles and a pass defended. Jones can safely be considered a DB1 in IDP dynasty leagues.

Redskins

  • The lone bright spot for Washington was Alfred Morris busting out with 121 yards. If he can keep turning in 100-yard games, Morris will retain RB2 value in dynasty formats beyond this year.
  • At quarterback, Kirk Cousins surprised no one by going 21 of 31 for 196 yards a touchdown and two interceptions. We should see Colt McCoy any week.
  • Tight end Jordan Reed had a nice comeback game with 7 catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. If he can stay healthy, he can be another low-end TE1 in dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Dolphins beat Bills, 22-9

  • Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a very business-like day with 240 passing yards plus two touchdowns with no interceptions. This appears to be the norm for Tannehill which puts him in the QB2 tier but nothing more.
  • Bills running back Bryce Brown had a decent day as the passing back with 14 yards rushing to go along with seven catches and 57 yards. Brown is widely expected to have a bigger role in Buffalo next year so this is a good start.
  • Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry had quietly had one of the better rookie receiver seasons and added five catches for 46 yards and a touchdown He’s been a solid WR3 in PPR leagues.
  • Bills defensive end Mario Williams had 3.5 sacks to bring his total to 10 for the year. He’s a solid DL2 even in dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Dolphins blank Chargers, 37-0

  • Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a good day with 288 yards passing and three touchdowns to go along with 47 yards rushing. Tannehill continues to have his good and bad days and is no better than an inconsistent QB2.
  • A beneficiary of Tannehill’s good day was tight end Charles Clay with five catches for 65 yards and a touchdown. Now that Clay is healthy he’s heating up and is a decent low-end TE1.
  • Rookie receiver Jarvis Landry is also impressing with five catches for 46 yards and a touchdown. Landry has been consistent the last few weeks and could be the top target in Miami next year.

Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Packers escape Dolphins, 27-24

  • Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was his usual efficient self with 264 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. Him and Andrew Luck are the top-tier quarterbacks to own in dynasty.
  • Packers receiver Jordy Nelson was also his usual self with nine catches for 107 yards and a touchdown. He’s a WR1 in all dynasty formats.
  • On the other side of the field, Dolphins rookie receiver Jarvis Landry broke out with six catches and 75 yards plus a touchdown on eight targets. He could be the WR2 in Miami soon and have some value.
