Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Raiders 37, Chargers 29

Raiders

  • Quarterback Derek Carr had another good game with 289 yards plus three touchdowns and no turnovers. He’s not quite at the QB1 level but he’s firmly in the QB2 conversation.
  • Rookie receiver Amari Cooper caught five passes for 133 yards and a touchdown. He’s well on his way to WR1 status.
  • Linebacker Malcolm Smith had a big day with 11 tackles, a sack and an interception. He’s played like a LB1 this year and should level out as a solid LB2 for dynasty purposes.

Chargers

  • Quarterback Philip Rivers had another big day with 336 yards plus three touchdowns and two interceptions. He’ll continue to put up QB1 numbers and should be considered as such in dynasty formats.
  • Receiver Keenan Allen continues his bounce back season with nine catches for 89 yards. As long as Rivers is around, Allen should be a rock solid WR2 in dynasty formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Seahawks beat Cardinals, 34-22

  • The Cardinals continue to give Rashard Mendenhall carries where he produced 1.7 YPC on 13 carries. Why they don’t see the light and hand over rushing duties to rookie Andre Ellington, I’ll never know. But one thing’s for sure – Ellington is the guy to own in Arizona. He still managed two catches on five targets. If he ever gets full-time duties, watch out.
  • Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer had 45 pass attempts but only five were directed towards Larry Fitzgerald. You have to wonder about Fitz’s long-term value with Carson Palmer and that offensive line at the helm.
  • In good news, Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd got 10 of those targets and pulled in six catches for 71 yards.
  • Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith had the best game of his young career with nine tackles, a sack, two tackles for a loss and a pass defended. Smith is just 24 and is the starting weak-side linebacker in a very good defense so there is long-term potential there.
