Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Giants 24, Bills 10

Giants

  • Eli Manning had another decent outing with 212 passing yards and three touchdowns to go with one interception. Eli will always be a middle-tier QB2 in dynasty formats but could have good days with Odell Beckham in the mix.
  • Speaking of, ODB had just five catches for 38 yards on 12 targets. Beckham’s rookie year was always seen as a fluke but he was still expected to be a WR1. You can’t say that one month into his sophomore season.

Bills

  • Rookie running back Karlos Williams had just 40 yards on 18 carries but with the Giants ahead big for most of the game, there was no need to run the ball for Buffalo. Williams will do better.
  • Tight end Charles Clay continued his roll with nine catches for 111 yards on 13 targets. Without Sammy Watkins, Clay was Tyrod Taylors favorite target but he could enter the low-end TE1 conversation with more performances like this.
  • Safety Corey Graham had 13 tackles and a sack in another DB1 performance. He’s had double-digit tackles in three straight games and should be considered a good DB in IDP dynasty formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Falcons 24, Giants 20

Falcons

  • Quarterback Matt Ryan went off with 363 yards and a touchdown. More days like this will push him squarely in the top five of dynasty quarterbacks.
  • His favorite receiver, Julio Jones, caught 13 passes for 135 yards on 15 targets. Jones can absolutely make the case for being dynasty’s top receiver.  
  • Rookie pass rusher Vic Beasley had five tackles and a sack in his second career game. It’s a good start for Beasley where he should be considered a DL4 but can easily top out as a DL2.

Giants

  • Despite the close losses, quarterback Eli Manning is still performing well with 292 yards and two touchdowns. He’s probably not a sure-fire QB1 in dynasty rankings but he’s a high-end QB2.
  • As Manning goes, those around him go like running back Shane Vereen. He caught eight balls for 76 yards and ran for 19 more. In PPR leagues, Vereen is a solid RB3.
  • Of course, the top dog in New York is Odell Beckham who turned in a 7/146/1 line today. He’s a top five dynasty option at WR and will be for a while.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Cowboys 27, Giants 26

Cowboys

  • Tony Romo was his usual gunslinger self with 356 yards and three touchdowns (plus two interceptions). He’s, at worst, a low-end QB1 in dynasty leagues but has room to grow now that Dallas has little depth at running back.
  • Speaking of, Joseph Randle had a decent day on the ground with 65 rushing yards plus three catches for 42 yards. This may be a best-case scenario for Randle throughout the season which makes him a RB2 in dynasty, at best.
  • The main beneficiary of Dez Bryant’s absence had to be tight end Jason Witten with eight catches for 60 yards and two touchdowns. Witten’s stats have gone down the last three seasons but he could be due for a resurgence without DeMarco Murray carrying the load. He’s a low-end TE1.

Giants

  • An all-around bad night for the Giants started with Eli Manning. Going only 20 of 36 for 193 yards isn’t good for anyone. It’s only one game but Eli is still a QB2.
  • With Eli turning in a clunker, Odell Beckham did too with just five catches for 44 yards. Beckham is rated as a WR1 in dynasty leagues but it might not be a bad idea to see him have another great year before anointing him as such.
  • Very little going on in the run game as well with lead back Rashad Jennings going for 52 yards on 13 carries. Andre Williams got six carries so Jennings is, by no means, a bell cow. His ceiling will be a RB3.

Updated Dynasty Wide Receiver Rankings – April 2015

Complete updated dynasty wide receiver rankings can be found here

  • It’s been awhile since our last rankings but above is the final look at wide receivers before the 2015 NFL Draft. The updated top five is now Dez Bryant, Julio Jones, A.J. Green, Demaryius Thomas, and Antonio Brown.
  • Interesting notes are Calvin Johnson not only dropping from the top spot but out of the top five completely.
  • Four of last year’s rookies, all first round picks are in the top 15: Odell Beckham at 7, Mike Evans at 8, Sammy Watkins at 12, and Kelvin Benjamin at 15. This year’s rookie class is talented too but we may have reached the apex of top receiver talent with so many out there.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – 49ers hang on over Giants,16-10

  • 49ers running back Frank Gore turned back the clock with 95 yards on 19 carries. He showed what can happen if you give him the ball but should still be a non-factor in dynasty leagues next year.
  • Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham continues to impress with six catches for 93 yards. The only downside is he was targeted 13 times, converting less than half. But as long as keeps getting the reps, Beckham is a possible WR2 every week.
  • Giants receiver Rueben Randle had a game-high seven catches for 112 yards on 15 targets. It was a nice game but we expect Randle to be the odd man out in New York next year.
  • 49ers linebacker Chris Borland continues to impress with 13 tackles, 3 passes defended and two interceptions. He’s playing like a LB1 and should have a place in the lineup next year.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Giants beat Falcons 30-20

  • Giants quarterback Eli Manning continues to become more efficient with 200 yards and two touchdowns. With new personnel, it’s possible Manning regains his QB2 look but we’ll wait and see.
  • Falcons receiver Julio Jones continues to show why he’s a top end WR in dynasty with 11 catches for 105 yards on 16 targets. He can’t be stopped.
  • Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham had a solid debut with four catches for 44 yards and a touchdown. It’s a promising debut albeit against a bad defense.
  • Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow continues to rack up the tackles with 14. He’s averaging 12 tackles a game while the defense continues to struggle.
