Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Patriots 30, Jets 23

Patriots 

  • Tom Brady keeps on rolling with 355 yards and two touchdowns. He’s so far ahead of most quarterbacks that, despite the age, he has to be a top-five dynasty QB.
  • Likewise, Rob Gronkowski had 11 catches for 108 yards and a touchdown. He’s dynasty’s top TE. Period.
  • On defense, linebacker Jamie Collins led the way with 12 tackles plus a sack. He should be considered a LB1 in dynasty IDP formats.

Jets

  • Even though he’s not the long-term answer, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a solid option this season. Today, he had 295 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. It’s possible you could sell him this year to a win-now team.
  • Receiver Eric Decker continues to provide value under the radar with six catches for 94 yards and a team-high 12 targets. Decker has succeeded despite changes in coaches and quarterbacks.
  • Defensive end Sheldon Richardson added another sack in his second game back. He’s a DL1 when healthy and playing but it’s anyone’s  guess if he’ll be back with New York next year. I might try to sell high.

  • Confirming what was widely expected, the Lions intend to use running back Joique Bell more this season, as opposed to Reggie Bush. Bell is, arguably, the better runner while Bush offers more in the passing game. Both of their dynasty values will be limited unless the other gets injured and shouldn’t be projected as anything more than RB3.
  • Chargers general manager Tom Telesco re-affirmed Ryan Mathews as their workhorse running back. Mathews finally cashed in on his dynasty potential last year and is one of the few full-time running backs left in fantasy football. He’s an ideal RB2 in dynasty leagues for 2014 and beyond.
  • The Texans signed quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. This indicates two things: 1) the Texans are likely taking a quarterback with the first overall pick (as opposed to signing a better, win-now option like Mike Vick) and 2) Fitzpatrick should see some playing time early on in the season. If you end up with the Texans quarterback of the future, be sure to snap Fitzpatrick in your dynasty leagues. It also means the end of the Matt Schaub-era in Houston.
  • In other backup quarterback news, Jason Campbell signed with the Bengals to back up Andy Dalton. There were calls at the end of last season for the Bengals to do something about Dalton and signing Campbell won’t change that. Campbell is one of the better back ups in the league and is surrounded by talent in Cincinnati. It’s a serious question if Dalton is their long-term plan at quarterback or not.
  • The Panthers recently signed Jerricho Cotchery to be their top receiving option. You have to assume the Panthers have a plan at receiver after missing on every option before Cotchery while cutting veteran Steve Smith. Luckily, there are a ton of receivers in this years draft.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Colts at Titans

  • Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had a decent night, going 22 of 28 for 222 yard and a touchdown. Even if the 30-year old plays well down the stretch, it will be Jake Locker or bust for the Titans.
  • Colts running back Trent Richardson had another poor game, rushing for only 22 yards on eight carries. He did add 31 yards on five receptions. But if this is the type of game Richardson produces week-in and week-out, he’s a poor fantasy option and certainly not a RB1. He’s now entering buy-low territory if he keeps this kind of play up.
  • Colts tight end Colby Fleener had his best game of the year with eight receptions for 107 yards. Hopefully this is the beginning of good things with Fleener.
  • After not starting for the first half of the season, Titans linebacker Colin McCarthy has played well in the place of Moises Foku. He had 12 tackles in the game. He now has 38 in his last four games along with two tackles for a loss, one forced fumble and one interception.
