Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Vikings 26, Lions 16

Vikings

  • Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had another average game with 153 yards and a touchdown but added 21 yards on the ground and another touchdown. No need to abandon ship on Bridgewater yet but hopefully the hype catches up soon.
  • Meanwhile, Adrian Peterson ran wild for 134 yards rushing plus 58 yards receiving. He should continue to be a RB1 in dynasty rankings until he shows he can’t do it.
  • Tight end Kyle Rudolph had another five-catch game with 30 yards and a touchdown. He’ll continue to rise in the dynasty rankings.

Lions

  • Quarterback Matt Stafford had a very Stafford-like game with 286 yards on 53 pass attempts with two touchdowns and an interception. Stafford has clearly played himself out of elite QB1 status in dynasty leagues.
  • Rookie running back Ameer Abdullah had a poor game with nine yards rushing and nine yards receiving on just eight touches. He should still lead the team in carries going forward so he’ll be fine.
  • Receiver Calvin Johnson bounced back with 10 catches for 83 yards and a touchdown. He may not be the elite dynasty receiver he was but he’s still a low-end WR1.

Daily Dynasty Update – June 17th

  • ricePeople are expecting the Ray Rice suspension to last at least four games to start the season. It’s a substantial amount of time to miss for a player looking to rebound. The fuse on Rice’s dynasty value is running out.
  • Raiders receiver Denarius Moore hasn’t had good reports this off-season and is in serious jeopardy of losing a starting spot. Moore’s play has been maddening his whole career.
  • Look for Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph to have a big year with the arrival of Norv Turner. Turner likes to use a ’12’ offensive alignment which allows one  tight end to remain in-line to block while the other is free to catch. Rudolph would be the latter.

Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Panthers dominate Vikings, 35-10

  • The Cam Newton we all know and love re-appeared. He had four touchdowns and 242 passing yards to go along with 30 yards rushing.
  • Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph had his best game of the year with nine catches for 97 yards and a touchdown. I’d still wait to see if Rudolph keeps this up or if it was just a blip.
  • Panthers receiver Brandon LaFell had four catches for 107 yards. Don’t get too excited as the Panthers are sure to upgrade the position in the off-season. LaFell is still off dynasty radars.
  • Vikings rookie defensive lineman Sharrif Floyd had his first full sack to give him 1.5 for the year. The hope is he can develop into a Geno Atkins-type fantasy player and still rack up the sacks even though he plays the interior.
