Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Saints 27, Colts 21

Saints 

  • Drew Brees had an ordinary day with 255 yards plus a touchdown and an interception. It becomes harder to keep Brees as a certain QB1 in dynasty formats.
  • Meanwhile, Mark Ingram had a good week with 143 yards plus a touchdown. He had two touchdowns vultured and actually had the same number of carries as Khiry Robinson but he made the most of them.
  • Rookie linebacker Stephone Anthony had seven tackles plus a big interception. He’s currently no higher than a LB2/3 but more plays like that and he could end up as a LB1.

Colts

  • Another high scoring day for Andrew Luck with 333 yards and three touchdowns plus two interceptions while playing most of the game behind. Luck’s play has fallen off to the point where no one thinks he’s the top dynasty quarterback anymore.
  • On the receiving side, T.Y. Hilton had a very TY-like day with four catches for 150 yards and two touchdowns. Hilton continues to be the top receiving threat in a pass-heavy offense which means good WR2 value.
  • LInebacker Jerrell Freeman had 12 more tackles and is now up to 48 on the season. In tackle-friendly formats, Freeman is a LB1/2.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Bills 27, Colts 14

Bills

  • Quarterback Tyrod Taylor had an interesting day with 195 yards and a touchdown through the air plus 41 yards rushing. His ceiling is as the next Cam Newton / Colin Kaepernick-type and as a possible high-end QB2.
  • Bills rookie running back Karlos Williams led the team with 55 yards on just six carries plus a touchdown. He outperformed new back LeSean McCoy who had only 41 yards on 17 carries. It’s entirely possible Williams is sharing primary back duties with McCoy sooner rather than later. Williams is a good one to try to get before his value soars.

Colts

  • Bad day all the way around for the Colts. Starting at the top, Andrew Luck struggled mightily, going 26 of 49 for 243 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He’ll get better throughout the season but it’s worth wondering if there’s any chance he’s only the second best dynasty quarterback.
  • Because of Luck’s poor day, there’s not much to report on the receiving front. T.Y. Hilton finished with seven catches for 88 yards. The young guys did fair with Donte Moncrief finishing with six catches for 46 yards and Philip Dorsett finishing with two catches for 45 yards. Hilton was injured which will open the door for Dorsett and Moncrief. Both are only WR4-5’s at the moment but could easily gain ground.

Dynasty Recap – Week 12 – Colts beat up Jaguars 23-3

  • Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had a quiet day by his standards with 253 yards passing and a touchdown. He’ll bounce back soon.
  • Colts running back Daniel Herron had a good day in his first start of the season with 65 yards rushing plus five catches for 31 yards. Herron could have some dynasty value as Ahmad Bradshaw probably won’t be there next year.
  • Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton had a big day with 122 yards on four catches and one touchdown. Even on a bad day by Luck, Hilton still produced a WR1 day.
  • Jaguars rookie linebacker Telvin Smith had his best game of the season with 13 tackles on the day. Smith came in to the season with a lot of promise and could get more playing time as the seasons wears on. Numbers like this make him a solid LB2/3.

Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Colts shutout Bengals, 27-0

  • Another day at the office for quarterback Andrew Luck with 344 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. He’s battling for the top quarterback in all of dynasty.
  • Likewise, Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton had another big day with seven catches for 107 yards while leading the team with nine targets. He’s a legit WR2 in dynasty formats and could be a low-end WR1.
  • Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had a horrible day with just 126 yards on 18 of 38 passing with no touchdowns. This kind of day won’t help his case to be a low-end QB1.
  • Bengals linebacker Vincent Rey had a big day with 16 tackles. Rey flashed potential last year but will only see  the field if there are injuries.

Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Colts escape Texans, 33-28

  • Colts quarterback Andrew Luck continues his hot streak 370 yards and three touchdowns with an interception. Each week like this further solidifies his case a the top QB in dynasty.
  • The main beneficiary of Luck’s performance was receiver T.Y. Hilton with nine catches for 223 yards and a touchdown. He has the most upside of all the Colts receivers.
  • On the Houston side, running back Arian Foster looks like his old self with 109 yards and two touchdowns rushing to go with three catches for 32 yards. He’s an ideal RB2 in dynasty leagues.
  • Houston defensive end J.J. Watt had a ridiculous night with two sacks along with a fumble return for a touchdown. There’s simply no better IDP player right now than Watt.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Colts beat Ravens, 20-13

  • Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had a good day in the air with 312 yards but only one touchdown and two interceptions. He also added a rushing touchdown and should continue to be a QB1.
  • Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton continues to put together a solid season with nine catches for 90 yards and tied for the team lead with 12 targets. He continues to be a solid WR2 in dynasty formats as long as he has Andrew Luck.
  • Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley broke out with 15 tackles and a pass defended. He should be a LB1 from here on out.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Colts destroy Titans, 41-17

  • Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is staking his claim as the top quarterback in dynasty with 393 yards and four touchdowns.
  • Titans tight end Delanie Walker had another good day with five catches for 84 yards and a touchdown. He continues to be a low-end TE1 as the top option in Tennessee.
  • Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton had a big day with six catches for 105 yards and a  touchdown. He keeps trending upward in dynasty leagues and should top out as a WR2 before it’s all set and done.
  • Meanwhile, veteran Colts receiver Reggie Wayne had seven catches for 119 yards and a touchdown. He’s a legit WR2 now but should be on the block for your dynasty team.
