- Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith had another decent day with 234 yards passing and two touchdowns. That’s about the ceiling for Alex Smith going forward.
- Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles had a big day as he’s prone to do. He reeled off 80 yards rushing plus four catches for 42 yards and a touchdown. He should continue to be dynasties top running back.
- On the other side of the field, Raiders running back Latavius Murray broke out with 112 rushing yards on just four carries with two touchdowns.
- Raiders linebacker Sio Moore had a big day with 12 tackles and a sack and continues to have a good season. He should be part of a good, young defense in Oakland as a LB2/3.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Jets sloppily beat Raiders, 19-14
- Jets quarterback Geno Smith had an up and down day going 23 of 28 for 221 yards, a touchdown, an interception and a lost fumble. It’s looking more and more like that’s what a typical Geno Smith day will look like. He can be downgraded in dynasty.
- The Jets running game was split with Chris Ivory going for 10 and 102 yards (and a touchdown) and Chris Johnson getting 13 carries for 68 yards. Johnson added five catches for 23 points and a touchdown. Johnson would be the better play in PPR leagues.
- Eric Decker left no doubt about who the top receiver is in New York with five catches for 74 yards and led the team in targets.
- A bright spot for the Raiders was on the IDP side with linebacker Sio Moore racking up 13 tackles and a sack. With those numbers, Moore could be a LB2 in dynasty leagues.
Dynasty Recap – Week 10 – Giants escape Raiders, 24-20
- Giants running back Andre Brown had 115 yards rushing on 30 carries, solidifying his every down role with David Wilson out. Brown should be owned in dynasty circles with Wilson’s long-term health up in the air.
- Raiders running back Rashad Jennings had an impressive 88 yards on 20 carries for a 4.4 YPC. He won’t be an option long-term but one might be able to trade him this year for an asset.
- Raiders rookie linebacker Sio Moore had his best game of the year with nine tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.
- Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul had his first sack since the season opener. His play has diminished all year and you have to wonder if he can return to form. Hopefully he can regain his value.
Dynasty Recap – Week 8 – Raiders beat Steelers, 21-18
- Steelers receiver Antonio Brown was one of the few standouts in an otherwise ugly fantasy game. He had nine catches for 82 yards on 11 targets and will continue to be a WR1 going forward.
- Raiders rookie linebacker Sio Moore had two sacks on the day in easily his best game of the year. There was a lot of hype surrounding Moore heading in to dynasty drafts and he may finally be turning the corner.
- Raiders defensive lineman Lamarr Houston had himself another sack giving him four on the year and matching last year’s total. Houston has the potential to be a low-end, but steady, DL2/3 in dynasty leagues.
Daily Dynasty Update – August 9th
It’s Friday. Which means you can do nothing but dynasty cheat sheets tonight. Let’s get it on:
- Tom Brady is feasting. Despite the massive turnover in receivers, Brady is still as locked in as ever. He’ll drop in dynasty league drafts but sure things are hard to come by. Don’t sleep on Brady. Plus, I think they’ll have to carry Brady off the field before he retires.
- Oakland receiver Denarius Moore has been inconsistent in camp so far. Coach Dennis Allen even went as far as to say Oakland doesn’t have that ‘go-to’ guy. Yikes.
- 8th overall pick Tavon Austin has looked excellent in Rams camp. It still remains to be seen exactly how he’ll be used but he’s sure to be involved. Also keep in mind that former Jet OC Brian Schottenheimer is now in St. Louis. The Jets didn’t exactly fling the ball around.
- I take back any concern I had about Zach Ertz. He’s been lining up wide, making some great catches and showing why some teams thought he was the best tight end in the draft. Initially, it wasn’t clear where Ertz would wind up behind incumbent Brent Celek and free agent James Casey but locals are predicting he leads the position in catches.
- Keenan Allen has yet to distinguish himself as a possible replacement at receiver in San Diego. Currently a later round pick, exhibition games will be the real test. Temper your expectations accordingly.
- Rookie receiver Marcus Wheaton is doing all the right things in Pittsburgh camp. He’s going over the middle for catches a la Hines Ward. Combine that with his speed and Wheaton is a great prospect in dynasty leagues. Draft accordingly.
- Ryan Broyles is a go in Detroit despite sitting out practice. A two-time ACL tear victim, Broyles is extremely fragile long-term but his position as the receiver opposite of Calvin Johnson in the most pass-happy offense in the NFL can’t be ignored. He’s worth a flyer and could be a tradeable asset down the road.
- Maquise Goodwin has been better than advertised in his first camp in Buffalo. We looked at Goodwin in-depth. Goodwin didn’t get much action in college at Texas but his 4.27 40-time made people take notice. He’s been working in the slot at out wide and catching absolute bombs. Goodwin is one of our favorite late round flyers for your taxi squad.
- Rookie linebacker Sio Moore is currently the starter in Oakland. He’ll be on the strong-side. Currently at 42 in dynasty linebacker rankings, he can be bumped up.
