Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Jaguars 34, Bills 31

Jaguars

  • Blake Bortles had an up and down day with 182 yards plus two touchdowns and an interception. After looking like a bust in the first part of the season, Bortles has come on strong lately. He could end up as a low-end dynasty QB1 by the end of the season.
  • Meanwhile, running back T.J. Yeldon had a good day with 115 yards on 20 carries and a touchdown. He faced a tough defense so it was encouraging. The entire Jaguar offense has picked it up lately which is good news for Yeldon.
  • Young receiver Allen Robinson re-established his place as the top target in Jacksonville, leading the team in targets (9), receptions (6), and yards (98). He also added a touchdown. Robinson can safely be viewed as a low-end WR2 in dynasty rankings

Bills

  • Running back LeSean McCoy had an ok day with 68 yards rushing plus two catches for 36 yards. He’s a low-end RB1 until further notice.
  • Receiver Robert Woods had a good game in place of starter Sammy Watkins with nine catches for 84 yards and a touchdown. Woods may not find a long-term place in Buffalo but should be a reliable piece somewhere else.
  • Safety Corey  Graham had nine tackles plus an interception returned for a touchdown. He’s played like a solid DB1 this season but, at 30 years old, should probably considered more of a DB2 in IDP dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Bengals 34, Bills 21

Bengals

  • Another super performance from Andy Dalton with three touchdowns and 243 passing yards. His play has put him in the QB1 conversation.
  • The running back situation is much more like it was at the beginning of last year where it’s pretty even. Jeremy Hill had 56 yards on 16 carries while Gio Bernard had eight carries for 50 yards and a  touchdown. Bernard also added a 23 yard reception. Both should be considered no better than RB2s in dynasty formats.
  • Defensive end Carlos Dunlap had 1.5 more sacks for 6.5 through six games on the season. He’s just 26 but is easily a DL1 in dynasty formats.

Bills

  • Running back LeSean McCoy returned from injury with 90 yards on just 17 carries and a touchdown. He should produce at close to RB1 numbers for this year but it’s obvious his days are numbered. We’d trade him while you still can.
  • Tight end Charles Clay caught nine passes for 62 yards and continues to be a big part of the Buffalo offense. He’s squarely in the low-end TE1 conversation.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Patriots 40, Bills 32

Patriots

  • Tom Brady continues to be in full-on pissed-off mode, going for 466 yards and three touchdowns. He’s easily a top-end dynasty quarterback despite his age.
  • Running back Dion Lewis continues to roll with 40 rushing yards and a touchdown plus six catches for 98 yards. He’s a low-end RB1 in PPR re-draft leagues but his status beyond this year is in doubt.
  • Receiver Julian Edelman continues to dominate the targets with 19, resulting in 11 catches for 97 yards and two touchdowns. He’s a solid WR2 in dynasty PPR leagues.
  • Tight end Rob Gronkowski did his thing with seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown. He’s in a league of his own among tight ends and one of the top five dynasty players overall.

Bills

  • Running back LeSean McCoy had a good, not great game with 89 yards plus three catches for 27 yards. He might be a RB1 this year but not much longer. I would trade him while he still has value.
  • Quarterback Tyrod Taylor also had a good game although it was mostly in garbage time with 242 passing yards, three touchdowns but three interceptions. He also added 43 yards on the ground with a touchdown. This was a QB1 day but the question will be if he can keep it up over the whole season.
  • Receiver Sammy Watkins led the team in targets with eight, finishing with six catches for 60 yards and a touchdown. It’s a solid effort but more like WR3 numbers instead of WR1 like Watkins was expected to produce.

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.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Chiefs upend Seahawks, 24-20

  • Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles had a big day with 159 yards rushing and two touchdowns to go along with two catches for 19 yards. He’s easily surpassed LeSean McCoy as the top running back in dynasty.
  • Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had a decent day passing with 178 yards passing with two touchdowns plus 71 yards rushing. Wilson continues to be a low-end QB1 with all the rushing opportunities.
  • Seahawks safety Earl Thomas had a good day with 11 tackles and a pass defended. He’s had a down year, as have the entire Seattle defense, but today was a DB1 day.

Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Eagles beat Texans, 31-21

  • Eagles running back LeSean McCoy finally broke out with 117 rushing yards. McCoy should get better as the year wears on with a healthier offensive line.
  • Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins had another big day with six catches for 115 yards and a touchdown. If Hopkins keeps playing like this, he’ll be considered a WR2.
  • Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin had another big game with six catches for 158 yards and two touchdowns with just as much damage done with Mark Sanchez at quarterback than Nick Foles.
  • Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks had 12 tackles and a sack and continues to be a LB1.
