Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Browns 28, Titans 14

Browns

  • Unlike last week, the Browns offense didn’t look that bad starting with quarterback Johnny Manziel. He finished with 172 yards and two touchdowns. He didn’t do much on the ground but didn’t have to as Cleveland jumped out to a big lead and never looked back.
  • Speaking of running the ball, starter Isaiah Crowell had 72 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown. This is more like it from Crowell but he still split carries with rookie Duke Johnson. Expect an even split most of the season with Johnson being the better play.
  • Receiver Travis Benjamin had another big day with three catches for 115 yards and two touchdowns. Cleveland throws it very little but when they have this season, it’s been to Benjamin. With no other options, he may very well be the top receiver for the Browns which can make him a decent WR4/5.

Titans

  • Rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota had another solid day with 257 yards and two touchdowns plus two fumbles. He hasn’t played the best defenses the last two weeks but the touchdowns are encouraging. He could end up a QB1 by the end of the season.
  • Running back Bishop Sankey came back down to Earth with 42 yards on 12 carries. He’s nothing more than a very low-end RB2, if that, in dynasty rankings.

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.

  • We have a new entrant into the top five with Matt Ryan bringing up the rear after Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers, Cam Newton, and Russell Wilson.

  • Rookies Jameis Winston moves up one to 15th from 16th while Marcus Mariota is steady at 17th; Garrett Grayson drops a little from 34th to 37th while Bryce Petty does the same from 39th to 42nd.

Dynasty Rookie Mock Draft – May 2015

It’s been less than a week since the NFL Draft started but we already have an idea at which rookies you should target. We did a 12-team, offense-only rookie mock draft. Below are the results:

  • 1st overall pick – Todd Gurley – RB – St. Louis Rams – Todd Gurley is the only prospect with generational talent and he’ll get the carries needed to justify this selection. The offensive line is a question but imagine Adrian Peterson in 2012. He didn’t need one and neither will Gurley.
  • 2nd overall pick – Kevin White – WR – Chicago Bears – White has the size and credentials to be a WR1 and will start immediately. He enters a better situation than fellow rookie receiver Amari Cooper and should immediately have 1,000 yard seasons.
  • 3rd overall pick – Melvin Gordon – RB – San Diego Chargers – Elite skills everywhere minus the size of a Gurley. The Charles comparisons are lazy but probably accurate here. And there is NO competition from day one. Just an overall clean prospect going to a great situation.
  • 4th overall pick – Amari Cooper – WR – Oakland Raiders – Just 21 when the season starts, Cooper was the consensus top receiver in college last year and followed it up with a great combine including a sub-4.4 40-time. Doesn’t have the best situation but should overcome that.
  • 5th overall pick – DeVante Parker – WR – Miami Dolphins – Assuming the medical stuff checks out on the foot, he’s an excellent receiver with a chance to be a day one starter. Reminds me of Crabtree pre-achillies injury.
  • 6th overall pick – Nelson Algholor – WR – Philadelphia Eagles – The heir apparent to Jeremy Maclin, Algholor is a crisp route runner and can return punts which just add to his versatility. If you’re a believe in Chip Kelly, you’ll love Algholor.
  • 7th overall pick – Jameis Winston – QB – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – I’m as scared by the qbs as anyone but st this point in the first its worth it. Offensive line permitting, he can accumulate stats his first year.
  • 8th overall pick – Ameer Abdullah – RB – Detroit Lions – His low center of gravity coupled with his career 5.5 YPC figures to translate to the NFL. He also enters a good situation with only the pedestrian Joique Bell ahead of him for early-down duty.
  • 9th overall pick – Marcus Mariota – QB – Tennessee Titans – Assuming he’s the starter from day one, he’s worth drafting at the end of the first round of this rookie mock draft.
  • 10th overall pick – T.J. Yeldon – RB – Jacksonville Jaguars – Yeldon has the size and experience to be a three-down back and is drawing comparisons to a poor man’s Arian Foster. He has little-to-no competition in Jacksonville and should start right away.
  • 11th overall pick – Maxx Williams – TE – Baltimore Ravens – The only TE guaranteed to start from day one. Joe Flacco will love him and make the targets readily available.
  • 12th overall pick – Breshad Perriman – WR – Baltimore Ravens – The arrival of offensive coordinator Marc Trestman coupled with the lack of competition creates a golden opportunity for Perriman. He takes over Torrey Smith’s spot immediately and will love Joe Flacco’s big arm.

2015 NFL Draft – 2nd Overall Pick – Titans draft Marcus Mariota

After almost dealing away the pick (which they still may), Tennessee drafted Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.

If he stays, Mariota doesn’t have a lot to work with. His top receiver is Kendall Wright and has the disappointing Bishop Sankey behind him. The line protecting him isn’t great either. However, some project him to be better than Winston and has the added dimension of his legs. He also has coach Ken Whisenhunt, he of the Philip Rivers reclamation project, to guide him.

For dynasty purposes, he could be drafted ahead of Winston if your dynasty team can afford to let him ride the bench. Most likely won’t be in the first for most drafts but could be a good value in the second.
