Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Titans 42, Buccaneers 14

Titans

  • Couldn’t have had a much better debut than Marcus Mariota with 209 yards and four touchdowns. He’s firmly a QB2 but has room to grow.
  • Running back Bishop Sankey got off to a great start with 74 yards rushing on just 12 carries plus a touchdown along with two more catches for 12 yards and another touchdown. If he can have games like this consistently, he’ll rise to a low-end RB2 in dynasty leagues.
  • Another bounce back debut, this time from receiver Kendall Wright with 101 yards on four catches and a touchdown. Wright won’t be able to keep this pace up but could see a boost in value now that Mariota is in town.

Buccaneers

  • Meanwhile, Jameis Winston had a typical debut for a rookie quarterback with 210 passing yards plus two touchdowns and two interceptions. It’s a decent start for the rookie but Mariota has the early lead.
  • Second-year tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins filled in nicely for Mike Evans with five catches for 110 yards and two touchdowns. It was mainly garbage time but it’s a nice start to, what many people think, is a breakout year. He’s only a TE2 for now but that could change if he keeps this up.

Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Redskins slip past Titans, 19-17

  • Titans rookie running back Bishop Sankey was the lead back with 16 carries for 56 yards. Sankey should continue to be the starter and will benefit from better talent at the QB position.
  • Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon had his best day in weeks with five catches for 87 yards and a touchdown. The presence of fellow receiver DeSean Jackson has severely cut into Garcon’s value and can’t be trusted as anymore more than a WR3.
  • Titans receiver Kendall Wright had a decent day with six catches for 68 yards and a touchdown. He continues to see targets and had nine more today. He’s a hold in dynasty formats as he should benefit from better quarterback play.
  • Redskins linebacker Keenan Robinson had another good day with a season-high 14 tackles. The young linebacker has performed at a LB2 level this year and should be viewed that way in dynasty formats.

  • Top five remains the same with Calvin Johnson, A.J. Green, Dez Bryant, Josh Gordon, and Demaryius Thomas in the same positions as last month.
  • Big risers this month include Michael Crabtree, who will have a full pre-season to perform; the Cardinals Michael Floyd, who should be taking more targets from Larry Fitzgerald; the Titans Kendall Wright, who caught almost 100 balls with over 1,000 yards despite shoddy quarterback play; and the Patriots Julian Edelman, who re-signed with New England where his dynasty value will never be higher.
  • The drops this month include Larry Fitzgerald, who at 31, is a year older and has a steadily falling dynasty value; recently signed Eric Decker, who had his value drop once he left Denver; the Texans Andre Johnson, also a victim of time; and the Patriots Danny Amendola who just can’t seem to stay healthy.
  • New to the rankings are the Seahawks Doug Baldwin, who should see more targets now that Golden Tate is out-of-town; the Giants Jerrel Jernigan, who should see more targets now that Hakeem Nicks is out of New York; and Jarrett Boykin who should see more looks now that James Jones is out-of-town.

Daily Dynasty Update – January 6th

Dynasty Recap – Week 17 – Titans outlast Texans, 16-10

  • Titans running back Chris Johnson ran for 127 yards on 27 carries, for a 4.7 YPC, and a touchdown. While Johnson did run for 1,000 yards on the year, he’s still a low-end RB2 dynasty prospect (at best) and could even be playing somewhere else next year. A less run-conducive team would drop Johnson to RB3 status.
  • Titans receiver Kendall Wright had five catches for 50 yards to end 2013 with 90+ catches and 1,000 yards. It’s an impressive feat in Tennessee’s run-heavy offense in addition to poor quarterback play. Should the Titans move on from Jake Locker, Wright’s dynasty prospects will improve.
  • Texans end J.J. Watt had another sack and nine tackles to finish with 10.5 sacks and an impressive (for a lineman) 80 tackles. It wouldn’t hurt to inquire about Watt’s availability in your dynasty leagues to see if current Watt owners are ready to let go.

Dynasty Recap – Titans squeak by Jaguars, 20-16

  • Titans running back Chris Johnson had a decent day, running for 90 yards on 22 carries. The 4.1 YPC is above his season average of 3.7 but don’t expect this to give CJ another chance next year. He’s widely expected to be cut.
  • Titans receiver Kendall Wright had four catches for 22 yards on seven targets. But he passed 1,000 yards for the year and has 85 catches with little to no quarterback help. He’ll be a highly rated dynasty receiver next year.
  • Jaguars middle linebacker Paul Posluszny had a half sack. ‘Pos’ will be 20 heading in to next year but is still producing at a high level and not making much more than this year. He’s a reliable LB1.

Dynasty Recap – Week 15 – Cardinals escape Titans, 37-34 (OT)

  • Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer had an efficient day going 20 of 30 for 231 yards and a touchdown. As long as the Cardinals are playing well, Palmer will be a decent option as a low-end QB2 in dynasty leagues for the next 1-2 years.
  • Cardinals running back Andre Ellington continues to outplay incumbent running back Rashard Mendenhall, going for 71 yards on only 10 carries. He was also the leading receiver with 87 yards on four catches. If Mendenhall doesn’t come back next year, Ellington will be a RB1 dynasty option.
  • Titans receiver Kendall Wright had his best game of the year, catching 12 for 150 yards. It’s been an impressive season for Wright even with the last of a reliable quarterback option. The Titans are expected to upgrade the position next year which will only boost Wright’s value.
  • Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey had an impressive nine tackles with 1.5 sacks. He now has 54 tackles and 10.5 sacks for the season, great totals for an interior lineman. Casey is approaching Geno Atkins-type production
