2015 NFL Draft – 9th Overall Pick – Giants Draft Ereck Flowers

With the ninth pick, the Giants select tackle Ereck Flowers out of Miami.

After ranking 30th in run blocking last year, the G-Men take the best run blocker in the draft. The impact should be felt immediately and help the backfield of Rashad Jennings, Andre Williams and Shane Vereen. His pass blocking still needs plenty of work but is only 20-years old and will have plenty of time to learn. If he can round that part of his game into shape, Eli Manning and company will have solid protection for many years to come.

Dynasty Impact – New York Giants select Odell Beckham, Jr., WR

beckhamDynasty Impact: After showing no confidence in Rueben Randle, the Giants pick what many scouts thought was the second best receiver in the draft. Not as tall as Watkins or Evans, ODB has great leaping ability and superior hands. Eli Manning dynasty owners should rejoice that they finally have a compliment to Victor Cruz. Cruz should benefit with less attention with Beckham being in the discussion for second receiver taken off the board in dynasty rookie drafts.

Week 3 Dynasty Recap – Panthers destroy Giants, 38-0

  • There was nothing going on offense for New York. It might be time to jump ship on the Giants veterans for dynasty purposes. Guys like Hakeem Nicks or Eli Manning might net you some value.
  • One bright spot was safety Ryan Mundy who racked up nine tackles. Mundy took over the starting job for Stevie Brown earlier this year. With Brown out for the season, Mundy is worth a flyer.
  • For Carolina, DeAngelo Williams racked up 120 yards rushing. SELL. NOW. There won’t be a better time than right now to trade the 30-year old Williams for something.
  • Greg Hardy racked up three sacks for Carolina, proving just how valuable he is to Carolina’s front seven. Hardy is easily a top five defensive linemen in dynasty fantasy football.

Week 3 Dynasty Recap – Lions slip by Redskins 27-20

  • The Washington offense continues to fire on all cylinders. Running back Alfred Morris averaged five yards a carry but only had 15 of them.
  • Washington receiver Pierre Garçon was targeted 13 times and grabbed eight of them. He’ll continue to be Washington’s top target in the RG3 era.
  • Defensively for Washington, Perry Riley had 10 tackles, a tackle for a loss, and a pass defended. He continues to be one of the bright spots for dynasty fantasy owners on an otherwise dismal Washington defense.
  • Joique Bell did his best Reggie Bush impression and had 3.2 YPC while racking up 69 yards receiving. He had 132 total and continues to be a high on the handcuff list.
  • For Detroit, Ezekiel Ansah continues to make people forget about Cliff Avril, tallying two more sacks today and a forced fumble.
