Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Vikings 28, Lions 19

Vikings

  • Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater got back on track with 316 yards plus two touchdowns. He struggled to start the season but more games like this put him back in the QB1 conversation.
  • Receiver Stefon Diggs continues to impress with six catches for 108 yards and a touchdown. It was also the first time he led the team in targets. Diggs has the potential to be a good WR2/3 in dynasty formats.
  • Rookie linebacker Eric Kendricks had six tackles plus two sacks, doubling his sack total for the season. More games like this and he’ll be a solid LB2/3 in dynasty IDP formats.

Lions 

  • Matt Stafford was on his way to get back on track with 256 yards and two touchdowns before getting hurt. Stafford could still end up in the QB1 conversation by the end of the season but it’ll take a lot.
  • Meanwhile, rookie Ameer Abdullah appears to have taken over the starting job permanently, leading the team with eight carries for 43 yards. He’s not quite setting the world on fire like other rookie runners but could still be a decent RB2 in dynasty formats.
  • Tight end Eric Ebron continues to string together good performances with five catches for 83 yards and a touchdown. He’ll need to be more consistent to enter the TE1 conversation but he could be a good buy low candidate.

Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Vikings 16, Chiefs 10

Vikings 

  • Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had an average day with 249 yards and a touchdown plus two interceptions. More and more it looks like Bridgewater may not be making the leap to QB1 status.
  • Meanwhile, receiver Stefon Diggs caught seven passes for 129 yards. This after he caught six passes for 87 yards. He’s now starting thanks to an injury to Charles Johnson and could keep the job playing like this.
  • Linebacker Eric Kendricks had his best game so far with 10 tackles and a sack. Those are LB1 numbers if he can keep that up.

Chiefs

  • It was a dud of a debut for Charcandrick West as Jamaal Charles backup with just 33 yards on nine carries plus a fumble. It’s safe to say you don’t need to make any moves for him.
  • Tight end Travis Kelce continues to make due with five catches for 88 yards on seven targets. With the injury to Jeremy Maclin, maybe Kelce is in line for more targets.
  • Defensive lineman Allen Bailey had another big game with eight tackles and another sack. He’s quickly becoming a DL1/2 in dynasty formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Vikings 26, Lions 16

Vikings

  • Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had another average game with 153 yards and a touchdown but added 21 yards on the ground and another touchdown. No need to abandon ship on Bridgewater yet but hopefully the hype catches up soon.
  • Meanwhile, Adrian Peterson ran wild for 134 yards rushing plus 58 yards receiving. He should continue to be a RB1 in dynasty rankings until he shows he can’t do it.
  • Tight end Kyle Rudolph had another five-catch game with 30 yards and a touchdown. He’ll continue to rise in the dynasty rankings.

Lions

  • Quarterback Matt Stafford had a very Stafford-like game with 286 yards on 53 pass attempts with two touchdowns and an interception. Stafford has clearly played himself out of elite QB1 status in dynasty leagues.
  • Rookie running back Ameer Abdullah had a poor game with nine yards rushing and nine yards receiving on just eight touches. He should still lead the team in carries going forward so he’ll be fine.
  • Receiver Calvin Johnson bounced back with 10 catches for 83 yards and a touchdown. He may not be the elite dynasty receiver he was but he’s still a low-end WR1.

Dynasty Recap – Vikings escape Redskins, 29-26

  • Vikings rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had an ok game with 268 yards and a touchdown but, perhaps more importantly, no interceptions. He should continue to get better.
  • Redskins running back Alfred Morris had a bit of a comeback game with 92 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Hopefully Morris can keep it up and look more like the productive back he’s been thus far.
  • Vikings safety Harrison Smith continues to play like a DB1 with 10 more tackles. He’ll be a DB1 in dynasty formats for many years to come.
  • Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway continues to put on a display with eight tackles and a sack. Greenway was all but forgotten lately but has played like the LB1 he used to be.

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.
