Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Patriots 40, Bills 32

Patriots

  • Tom Brady continues to be in full-on pissed-off mode, going for 466 yards and three touchdowns. He’s easily a top-end dynasty quarterback despite his age.
  • Running back Dion Lewis continues to roll with 40 rushing yards and a touchdown plus six catches for 98 yards. He’s a low-end RB1 in PPR re-draft leagues but his status beyond this year is in doubt.
  • Receiver Julian Edelman continues to dominate the targets with 19, resulting in 11 catches for 97 yards and two touchdowns. He’s a solid WR2 in dynasty PPR leagues.
  • Tight end Rob Gronkowski did his thing with seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown. He’s in a league of his own among tight ends and one of the top five dynasty players overall.

Bills

  • Running back LeSean McCoy had a good, not great game with 89 yards plus three catches for 27 yards. He might be a RB1 this year but not much longer. I would trade him while he still has value.
  • Quarterback Tyrod Taylor also had a good game although it was mostly in garbage time with 242 passing yards, three touchdowns but three interceptions. He also added 43 yards on the ground with a touchdown. This was a QB1 day but the question will be if he can keep it up over the whole season.
  • Receiver Sammy Watkins led the team in targets with eight, finishing with six catches for 60 yards and a touchdown. It’s a solid effort but more like WR3 numbers instead of WR1 like Watkins was expected to produce.

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 7 – Bills slip by Vikings, 17-16

  • Vikings rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had another tough day with 157 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. It was against a solid Buffalo defense and is only the third game he’s started so it’s definitely not time to jump ship.
  • A bright spot for Minnesota was rookie running back Jerick McKinnon who had 103 yards on just 19 carries plus two receptions. McKinnon looks to be the starter the rest of this season and should be in the foreseeable future with Adrian Peterson’s future in doubt.
  • Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins had a huge day with nine catches for 122 yards and two touchdowns. He’s well on his way to being the top rookie receiver this year.
  • Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr had a big day with 10 tackle, a pass defended, and two fumble recoveries. He should be in the LB2 conversation going forward.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Bills escape Lions, 17-14

  • Lions quarterback Matt Stafford had a down day with 221 yards, a touchdown and an interception. You wonder if the absence of Calvin Johnson, Joique Bell, and Reggie Bush towards the end of the game is having an impact.
  • Bills running back C.J. Spiller continues to disappoint with seven yards on nine carries and 25 yards receiving on three catches.
  • One person taking advantage of Calvin Johnson’s absence is Golden Tate who racked up 134 yards on seven catches and a touchdown. Tate is a low-end WR2 as long as he’s in Detroit.
  • Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins had his best day with 87 yards on seven catches and led the team with 12 targets. He could develop into at least a WR2 his year with the potential for more.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Bills dominate Dolphins, 29-10

  • Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill just looked bad, throwing for 249 yards on 49 pass attempts with a touchdown and interception. He simply has to be better to be considered a reliable dynasty QB.
  • Still stuck in a timeshare, Bills running back C.J. Spiller ran for 69 yards on 12 carries. He also returned a kick but he just isn’t reliable as a RB1 in dynasty while in Buffalo.
  • Bills rookie Sammy Watkins busted out with eight catches for 117 yards and a touchdown. Even with E.J. Manual, Watkins looks like he’ll still be able to produce.
