Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Rams 34, Seahawks 31 (OT)

Rams 

  • Quarterback Nick Foles had a decent day, completing 18 of 27 for 297 yards and a touchdown against the Kam Chancellor-less Seattle defense. It’s not time to bump up Foles in dynasty rankings but it’s a good start.
  • Foles leading receiver was tight end Jared Cook who caught five for 85 yards. Cook showed promise in last year’s opener too so we won’t get too excited. If he puts together another month of this though, things could change.
  • It was a coming out party for defensive tackle Aaron Donald and his nine tackle, two-sack day. He’s a solid DL2 but even higher if you play in a DT-special league.

Seahawks

  • Russell Wilson did not have a decent day, going 32 of 41 for only 251 yards and a touchdown and an interception. It’s early so it’s not time to move Wilson down dynasty rankings.
  • Running back Marshawn Lynch had a good day when he got the ball. Operating on only 18 carries, Lynch rushed for 73 yards but did add five catches for 31 yards. Seattle should go back to pounding the ball with Lynch next week. He’s still a RB1.
  • New addition Jimmy Graham had a decent day with six catches for 51 yards and a touchdown. A solid effort from a tight end but not worthy of being the second highest dynasty tight end. I’m going to start marking him down.

Complete updated dynasty quarterback rankings can be found here.

  • wilsonNew entry into the top five with Russell Wilson now 3rd behind Andrew Luck and Aaron Rodgers. Behind Wilson includes Cam Newton and Drew Brees. 
  • Big risers include some veterans written off in Tom Brady up to 9th from 19th and Ben Roethlisberger to 14th from 20th.
  • Big drops include Nick Foles from 9th to 15th; Robert Griffin from 11th to 18th and Teddy Bridgewater from 13th to 19th. Bridgewater should be the only one with a future of this bunch.

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.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Eagles double up Jaguars 34-17

  • After a slow start, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles threw for 322 yards and two touchdowns. He should continue to be a QB1 option in dynasty leagues.
  • Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had a good overall day with 74 yards on the ground with six catches for 41 yards.
  • On the Jaguars side, Marqise Lee led the team in targets with 10 and had six catches for 62 yards.
  • On the IDP side, linebacker Paul Posluszney led the team (again) with 12 tackles. He continues to be a LB1 in tackle-heavy leagues.

Daily Dynasty Update – March 28th

  • The Dolphins signed running back Knowshon Moreno, who immediately steps in as the starter. It’s not an ideal situation in Miami for any running back and one you should probably steer clear in 2014.
  • The Titans signed outside linebacker Shaun Phillips to rush the passer in Tennessee. Phillips is not a long-term dynasty solution but has product almost 20 sacks over the last two years.
  • The Eagles signed quarterback Mark Sanchez to back up incumbent Nick Foles. The move doesn’t do anything for Sanchez’s dynasty value but does question Matt Barkley’s. It’s not time to give up on Barkley yet but coach Chip Kelly is certainly not making it easy.

  • Top five is unchanged with Aaron Rodgers, Andrew Luck, Drew Brees, Cam Newton, and Matt Stafford.
  • Eagles quarterback Nick Foles continues to climb, this month to eight. You wouldn’t think Foles stock could go any higher. However, it’s important to remember that Foles was not a Chip Kelly product so it’s not entirely unreasonable to think Kelly will want someone else down the road. But for now, Foles value will never be higher.
  • Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III continues his slide to #11. He’s officially in ‘buy low’ territory and should benefit from a health off-season and a new scheme that’s more pass friendly. 
  • On the other side, Redskins backup Kirk Cousins has moved up to 28th on the heels of RG3’s poor season but I’m not sure why. He had a 52% completion percentage in 2013 and a 4:7 TD:INT ratio. It appears cousins is still living off his rookie season. You shouldn’t though.
