Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Redskins 31, Buccaneers 30

Redskins

  • Kirk Cousins had one of the best games of his career with 317 passing yards and three touchdowns plus zero interceptions. Despite the game, it’s doubtful Cousins is the long-term solution for anyone.
  • Jordan Reed came back from injury with 11 catches for 72 yards and two touchdowns proving he can be a TE1 when healthy. So much risk however.
  • Rookie receiver Jamison Crowder continues to fill in nicely for the injured DeSean Jackson with five catches for 48 yards. He could be an interesting dynasty stash even when Jackson returns.

Buccaneers

  • Rookie Jameis Winston had a solid day with 297 yards and two touchdowns. He’s up to nine touchdowns on the season and should only get better with a healthy Mike Evans.
  • Doug Martin continues to bounce back with 136 yards on the ground plus three catches for 35 yards. He’s played like a RB1 this year but is a free agent after the season. You may want to sell high while you can.
  • Mike Evans had his best game of the year with eight catches for 164 yards and a touchdown. He’s struggled through injuries this year but should be back on track as a WR1.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Redskins 24, Rams 10

Redskins

  • It was a coming out party for rookie running back Matt Jones with 123 yards on 19 carries and two touchdowns plus three catches for 23 yards. Good luck keeping him on taxi squads this year as Jones appears to be the clear heir apparent to Alfred Morris next year
  • Tight end Jordan Reed had another solid outing with six catches for 82 yards on six targets. If Reed is healthy, he’ll continue to be a big part of the offense this year and beyond.

Rams

  • It was Tre Mason’s turn as the running back of choice in St. Louis but didn’t do much to impress with only 26 yards on seven carries. For the Rams, they can’t wait for first round pick Todd Gurley to show up here he will be instantly put in the lineup.
  • On the defensive side, linebacker Alec Ogletree racked up 16 tackles. He continues to make big plays and is an ideal LB2 in IDP dynasty leagues.

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.

Daily Dynasty Update – October 8th

  • reedRedskins tight end Jordan Reed may actually play this week. His stock has probably taken a hit in dynasty leagues due to the fact the can’t stay on the field. However, he is a good buy-low candidate.
  • Bucs coaches continue to claim that Doug Martin is safe but his production doesn’t show it. We can’t reasonably view him as a RB1 until he starts performing like one.
  • Vikings running back Adrian Peterson should be on trial as soon as December 1. Since that’s the earliest Peterson can clear his name, we don’t expect him to play this year. His future value is in serious doubt as well.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Redskins destroy Jaguars, 41-10

  • Replacing RG3, quarterback Kirk Cousins looked pretty good with 250 yards and a touchdown. There was some chatter that Cousins looked better than RG3 before the season anyway but this may lend credence. He’s a deep roster stash at this point.
  • Replacing Jordan Reed at tight end, Niles Paul looked great with eight catches for 99 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets. In coach Jay Gruden’s pass happy offense, Paul could see some good days. He’ll have to do it a lot more to pass Reed on the depth chart.
  • Perhaps performing sooner than expected, receiver Allen Robinson led the team in receptions, yards, and targets with four catches on 75 yards. Robinson was never expected to contribute this early so his stock may go up sooner than expected.
