Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Bengals 34, Bills 21

Bengals

  • Another super performance from Andy Dalton with three touchdowns and 243 passing yards. His play has put him in the QB1 conversation.
  • The running back situation is much more like it was at the beginning of last year where it’s pretty even. Jeremy Hill had 56 yards on 16 carries while Gio Bernard had eight carries for 50 yards and a  touchdown. Bernard also added a 23 yard reception. Both should be considered no better than RB2s in dynasty formats.
  • Defensive end Carlos Dunlap had 1.5 more sacks for 6.5 through six games on the season. He’s just 26 but is easily a DL1 in dynasty formats.

Bills

  • Running back LeSean McCoy returned from injury with 90 yards on just 17 carries and a touchdown. He should produce at close to RB1 numbers for this year but it’s obvious his days are numbered. We’d trade him while you still can.
  • Tight end Charles Clay caught nine passes for 62 yards and continues to be a big part of the Buffalo offense. He’s squarely in the low-end TE1 conversation.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Bengals 36, Chiefs 21

Bengals

  • Andy Dalton had another solid day with 321 yards and a touchdown. We’ve never considered him a QB1 but with more weeks like this he might be.
  • The running game continues to lead the Bengals with Gio Bernard going for 62 yards and a touchdown and Jeremy Hill with 40 yards and three touchdowns. Both are weekly RB2 options but, as long as the other is healthy, will never be RB1 material.
  • After his first 100-tackle season last year, Vincent Rey continues to be a tackle machine with 15 today. For non-big play leagues, Rey is borderline LB1 in IDP dynasty leagues.

Chiefs

  • Running back Jamaal Charles piled up the yards again with 75 yards rushing and 70 more receiving. If it wasn’t for his age, he could make a claim as the top dynasty running back.
  • Receiver Jeremy Maclin had another big game although it was mostly in garbage time. After going for 141 receiving yards last week, Maclin went for 148 to go with 11 catches. If the Chiefs keep falling behind, Maclin could see some value.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Bengals 33, Raiders 13

Bengals

  • It was the good Andy Dalton with 269 yards and two touchdowns. Dalton will never be a QB1 in dynasty rankings but can have some decent games against bad teams.
  • Tight end Tyler Eifert broke out with nine catches, 104 yards and two touchdowns. If he keeps that up he’ll be a top five dynasty tight end.
  • Running back Jeremy Hill didn’t have to do much but had 63 yards and two touchdowns. Hill should be just fine and still a RB1 in dynasty rankings.

Raiders

  • Unfortunately, there weren’t a lot of good things, fantasy or otherwise, from the Raiders. Running back Latavius Murray had just 44 yards on 11 carries plus seven catches for 36 yards. The big lead by Cincinnati took Murray out of the running game which could be common this year. He’s no better than a RB3 in dynasty rankings.

Complete updated dynasty running back rankings found here.

  • New addition to the top five with Jeremy Hill sneaking in. Le’Veon Bell, Eddie Lacy, Jamaal Charles, and Todd Gurley stay the same.
  • Biggest risers include Chris Ivory to 32nd from 43rd; Matt Jones to 40th from 54th as one of the most promising rookies; Joseph Randle to 41st from 53rd which might be high with the recent trade of Christine MichaelAlfred Blue to 49th from 58th as Arian Foster continues to get injured; Panthers rookies Cameron Artis-Payne to 54th from 63rd; Danny Woodhead to 55th from 64th after healing from a season-ending injury; Bills rookie Karlos Williams to 58th as LeSean McCoy’s primary backup now; and Colts rookie Josh Robinson up to 60th now that he’s Frank Gore’s primary backup.
  • Biggest drops this month include Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon down from 30th to 38th thanks to the return of Adrian Peterson; Joique Bell from 33rd to 42nd thanks to the emergency of Ameer Abdullah; new Titans running back Terrance West 39th to 52nd; and Ravens rookie Buck Allen from 48th to 57th after showing nothing in the pre-season among others.

Dynasty Recap – Week 12 – Bengals beat Texans, 22-13

  • Bengals running back Jeremy Hill continues to run well with 87 yards on just 18 carries. There’s no doubt he’s the best runner on the team even if Gio can still be the top receiving back.
  • Bengals receiver A.J. Green had another big day with 12 catches for 121 yards on 16 targets. He should continue to regain his status as a top-tier WR.
  • Texans lineman J.J. Watt had another great game, especially for a DL, with seven tackles and a pass defended. Even if he doesn’t tally a sack, he’s still a force.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Bengals beat Saints, 27-10

  • Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had a good game with 220 yards and three touchdowns. Dalton has his share of critics but should top out as a low-end QB1 going forward.
  • Rookie running back Jeremy Hill had a big game with 152 yards on just 27 carries. It was a RB1 game but his value will suffer when Gio Bernard comes back.
  • Bengals receiver A.J. Green had a comeback game with six catches for 127 yards and a touchdown. It’s been an inconsistent season for Green but we have doubts about him staying an elite option.

Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Bengals beat Jaguars 33-23

  • Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles had a better day with 247 yards passing on a 67% completion percentage to go along with two touchdowns and an interception. More days like that and he’ll be a consistent QB2.
  • Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill had a huge day with 154 yards on the ground with two touchdowns. Between him and Gio, the Bengals have quite the combo.
  • Jaguars running back Denard Robinson had another good day with 94 yards and a touchdown. Robinson has risen above the other Jaguar running backs and has averaged over 100 yards a game over the last three games but could be a decent RB2 going forward.
  • Jaguars receiver Allen Hurns blew up for 112 yards on seven catches and two touchdowns. Hurns has had a good year but don’t rely on him for dynasty purposes.
