Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Miami beats down Patriots, 33-20

  • Holy crap – Tom Brady had 56 pass attempts and completed only 29 of them. He added 249 yards and a touchdown. If this game is any indication, the Patriots will be chucking it this season. If you’re a win-now dynasty team, Brady could be useful.
  • Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski made his triumphant return with four catches for 40 yards and a touchdown. He also led the team in targets. He should quickly re-affirm his status as an elite dynasty tight end.
  • In other Patriot receiver news, Julian Edelman picked up where he left off with six catches for 95 yards. He should continue to be a WR in PPR dynasty going forward.
  • For Miami, there’s no more doubt who is the top option in the running game as Knowshon Moreno went off for 24 carries and 134 yards and a touchdown. Lamar Miller can be dropped.
  • In IDP news, Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo had 12 tackles and a sack. He’s a legit LB1 in dynasty leagues.

Daily Dynasty Update – October 17th

  • Seattle receiver Percy Harvin will start practicing this week. It’s a great sign of Harvin’s progress but also means this week might be the last week you have a legitimate shot to trade for him. 
  • RGIII plans on running more. In the short-term, this could be a boon for Griffin’s fantasy value but you have to wonder how sustainable it is, especially in dynasty circles. 
  • Patriots receiver Danny Amendola has officially been diagnosed as concussed. You have to wonder how Amendola keeps getting hurt. His value is also all over the place in dynasty leagues – some probably think there’s still something there and would still want a decent return. While others might be ready to rid themselves of this walking injury report. His status in fantasy, in general, is a true toss-up.
  • Arizona running back Ryan Williams has been a healthy scratch in each game this season. It’s safe to drop him in all formats, even deeper leagues. 
  • Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo is officially done for the season. But any astute dynasty player knows this would be a perfect time to pick him off someone else’s team, especially if they’re in it to win it this year.
