Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Browns 28, Titans 14

Browns

  • Unlike last week, the Browns offense didn’t look that bad starting with quarterback Johnny Manziel. He finished with 172 yards and two touchdowns. He didn’t do much on the ground but didn’t have to as Cleveland jumped out to a big lead and never looked back.
  • Speaking of running the ball, starter Isaiah Crowell had 72 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown. This is more like it from Crowell but he still split carries with rookie Duke Johnson. Expect an even split most of the season with Johnson being the better play.
  • Receiver Travis Benjamin had another big day with three catches for 115 yards and two touchdowns. Cleveland throws it very little but when they have this season, it’s been to Benjamin. With no other options, he may very well be the top receiver for the Browns which can make him a decent WR4/5.

Titans

  • Rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota had another solid day with 257 yards and two touchdowns plus two fumbles. He hasn’t played the best defenses the last two weeks but the touchdowns are encouraging. He could end up a QB1 by the end of the season.
  • Running back Bishop Sankey came back down to Earth with 42 yards on 12 carries. He’s nothing more than a very low-end RB2, if that, in dynasty rankings.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Jets 31, Browns 10

Jets

  • The biggest star for New York was running back Chris Ivory who ran for 91 yards on just 20 carries plus two touchdowns plus a nine-yard catch. Ivory should continue to produce at RB2 levels and, at just 27 with plenty of tread left on the tires, should be a RB3 in dynasty rankings.
  • Receiver Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in his debut. It’s a good start but at 31, Marshall’s best days are behind him. We would rank him as a WR3-4 in dynasty rankings.

Browns

  • Filling in for start Josh McCownJohnny Manziel flopped in his 2015 debut with 182 yards on 13 of 24 passing with one touchdown and three turnovers (1 interception; 2 fumbles lost). Much like his fellow 2014 first-round pick Blake Bortles, I think it’s time to pull the plug.
  • Also flopping in his season debut, running back Isaiah Crowell gained all of 20 yards on 12 carries. He was facing a good defense in New York but it’s not a promising start especially with rookie Duke Johnson right behind him on the depth chart.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Browns come back against Titans, 29-28

  • Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer continues to hold off Johnny Manziel with another strong performance including 292 yards and three touchdowns. If the Browns keep winning, Hoyer will keep playing.
  • Browns running back Ben Tate had a great day back with 123 yards on the ground. He out touched rookie Terrance West 3-1 and should be a decent play as a RB2
  • Titans receiver Justin Hunter had his best day of the year with three catches for 99 yards and a touchdown. He just hasn’t been consistent enough to warrant anything more  than a WR4/5.
  • Titans safety Michael Griffin had a huge day with 14 tackles, a sack and a pass defended. He’s not known as a dynasty asset but with more days like today, Griffin could trend up.
