Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Giants 24, Bills 10

Giants

  • Eli Manning had another decent outing with 212 passing yards and three touchdowns to go with one interception. Eli will always be a middle-tier QB2 in dynasty formats but could have good days with Odell Beckham in the mix.
  • Speaking of, ODB had just five catches for 38 yards on 12 targets. Beckham’s rookie year was always seen as a fluke but he was still expected to be a WR1. You can’t say that one month into his sophomore season.

Bills

  • Rookie running back Karlos Williams had just 40 yards on 18 carries but with the Giants ahead big for most of the game, there was no need to run the ball for Buffalo. Williams will do better.
  • Tight end Charles Clay continued his roll with nine catches for 111 yards on 13 targets. Without Sammy Watkins, Clay was Tyrod Taylors favorite target but he could enter the low-end TE1 conversation with more performances like this.
  • Safety Corey Graham had 13 tackles and a sack in another DB1 performance. He’s had double-digit tackles in three straight games and should be considered a good DB in IDP dynasty formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Bills 27, Colts 14

Bills

  • Quarterback Tyrod Taylor had an interesting day with 195 yards and a touchdown through the air plus 41 yards rushing. His ceiling is as the next Cam Newton / Colin Kaepernick-type and as a possible high-end QB2.
  • Bills rookie running back Karlos Williams led the team with 55 yards on just six carries plus a touchdown. He outperformed new back LeSean McCoy who had only 41 yards on 17 carries. It’s entirely possible Williams is sharing primary back duties with McCoy sooner rather than later. Williams is a good one to try to get before his value soars.

Colts

  • Bad day all the way around for the Colts. Starting at the top, Andrew Luck struggled mightily, going 26 of 49 for 243 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He’ll get better throughout the season but it’s worth wondering if there’s any chance he’s only the second best dynasty quarterback.
  • Because of Luck’s poor day, there’s not much to report on the receiving front. T.Y. Hilton finished with seven catches for 88 yards. The young guys did fair with Donte Moncrief finishing with six catches for 46 yards and Philip Dorsett finishing with two catches for 45 yards. Hilton was injured which will open the door for Dorsett and Moncrief. Both are only WR4-5’s at the moment but could easily gain ground.
