Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Colts 16, Jaguars 13

Colts

  • Receiver Donte Moncrief continues to be the best Colts receiver with six catches for 75 yards. He should be considered a WR2 in dynasty ranks going forward.
  • Despite just turning 32, linebacker D’Qwell Jackson continues to rack up the tackles with 17 more. He has 47 on the season and should be considered a LB1 in dynasty IDP formats.

Jaguars

  • Blake Bortles had a decent day against a porous defense with 298 yards and a touchdown but it took him 50 pass attempts to get there. He’s still way down the QB2 tier.
  • In a positive development, rookie running back T.J. Yeldon had 105 yards on 22 carries for his best game of his career. He should still be considered no higher than a RB2 for dynasty purposes.
  • Safety Johnathan Cyprien had a huge day with 14 tackles and a fumble recovery. Cyprien has battled injuries in the past but, when healthy, he’s a low-end DB1.

Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Titans outlast Jaguars, 16-14

  • Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles had his best game of the year with 336 yards and a touchdown plus an interception. Even against a bad team its progress.
  • Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts III also had his best game of  the year with 10 catches for 103 yards. He should be Bortles top target this year and beyond and could be a decent WR3 going forward.
  • Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien had a big game with 15 tackles and a pass defended. He’s proving his DB1 status in dynasty leagues each week.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Steelers escape Jaguars, 17-9

  • Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a pedestrian day with 273 yards and a touchdown. The Jaguars defense is solid so no need to raise the alarm yet.
  • Likewise, Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell had plenty of yards with 82 rushing and 36 yards receiving on five catches.
  • The Jaguars defense included middle linebacker Paul Posluszny and his 12 tackles, sack and one pass defended. He’s a consensus LB1 in all dynasty formats.
  • In the secondary, Jonathan Cyprien had his best game of the year with 11 tackles. As long as he’s healthy, Cyprien should be a DB1.

Dynasty Recap – Week 14 – Jaguars down Texans, 27-20

  • Texans quarterback Case Keenum was a disaster, going 16 of 29 for 159 yards, a touchdown and an interception. It’s safe to say Houston will not roll with Keenum at quarterback in 2014.
  • Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew looked like his old, explosive self, going for 103 yards rushing on 14 carries including a vintage 48-yard run. He also added two catches for 20 yards. Jones-Drew is a free agent next year and won’t come close to his old self but could be a great change-of-pace back for his next team.
  • Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson proved, yet again, that he’s quarterback-proof, hauling in 13 catches for 154 yards. Now, Johnson is also the only reliable receiving threat on a bad team and his value could change if he changes teams. But he’s about as reliable as it gets.
  • Jaguars rookie safety Johnathan Cyprien had 11 tackles for his second straight double-digit tackle game. He’s up to 89 for the year and will easily pass 100. Cyprien is a good, young player on a young team that will only get younger. Keep an eye out.

Dynasty Recap – Week 12 – Jaguars beat Texans, 13-6

  • Texans quarterback Case Keenum’s downward trend continues. He went 18 of 34 for 169 yards, a 5.0 YPA, one interception and no touchdowns. Keenum started hot but hasn’t looked like the Texans quarterback of the future for weeks now.
  • Texans running back Dennis Johnson filled in for the ice-cold Ben Tate, taking 13 carries for 74 yards and adding two catches for 13 yards. Johnson figures to be Arian Foster’s backup in Houston next year. You’d be wise now to try to pick off Johnson on the cheap.
  • Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt had another great game, racking up nine tackles, a sack and two tackles for a loss. Watt’s quickly regained his All-Pro form after a slow start to the season.
  • Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien had a solid outing with six tackles and his first (two) passes defended this year. Cyprien hasn’t had quite the year that was expected but he’s still young and has a ton of talent to produce. He could be had in your league on the cheap.
