Dynast Recap – Week 7 – Chiefs 23, Steelers 13

Chiefs 

  • Running back Charcandrick West had a great day with 110 yards and a touchdown on the ground plus two catches for 109 yards. There’s no doubt who the Chiefs are going with in place of Jamaal Charles. West could have some good value on dynasty benches.
  • Despite no Jeremy Maclin, Travis Kelce had a very pedestrian day with five catches for 73 yards. Kelce is a TE1 but nowhere near elite status.
  • One player who did take advantage of no Jeremy Maclin was rookie Chris Conley who had six catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. He’s someone to watch in dynasty leagues even if Maclin returns.

Steelers

  • Le’Veon Bell had another solid performance with 121 yards on the ground plus four catches for 16 yards. Him and Todd Gurley could be 1 and 1A in dynasty rankings.
  • Same goes for Antonio Brown with six catches for 124 yards. Another day at the office.
  • Linebacker Lawrence Timmons had 10 tackles and a half sack in another LB1 day.

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 1 – Chiefs 27, Texans 20

Chiefs

  • At long last, tight end Travis Kelce was cut loose, piling up 106 yards on six catches and two touchdowns. It’s reasonable to firmly place Kelce as the second best dynasty tight end behind Gronk.
  • The man getting him the ball also had a good day with quarterback Alex Smith going 22 of 33 for 243 yards and three touchdowns. Smith will never sniff QB1 territory but could be a serviceable QB2.
  • Running back Jamaal Charles had a decent day by his standards with 57 yards on the ground but five catches for 46 yards and a touchdown in the air. He’s still a solid RB1 in dynasty rankings, especially PPR.
  • Linebacker Derrick Johnson had a big day with eight tackles, a pass defended and a sack. The middle linebacker is a safe LB1 in IDP dynasty leagues.

Texans

  • Thanks to being behind big, the receiving game was the big fantasy beneficiary with DeAndre Hopkins going off for nine catches and 98 yards plus two touchdowns. This could be the norm for Hopkins but makes have a low-end dynasty WR1.
  • The other stud for the Texans did it again with defensive end J.J. Watt racking up nine tackles and two sacks. He’s IDP’s #1 player no matter the format.

Updated Dynasty Tight End Rankings – September 2015

Complete updated dynasty tight end rankings found here.

  • Top five remains the same just in a slightly different order: Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Travis Kelce, Greg Olsen now takes fourth while Julius Thomas drops back to fifth.
  • Only big riser this month would be Giants tight end Larry Donnell up to 19th from 22nd. That should hold as Donnell is only the 3-4 option in the Giants offense.
  • Rookies this month include Maxx Williams holding steady at 12 and Raiders rookie Clive Walford at 29th.

Updated Dynasty Tight End Rankings – March 2015

Updated tight rankings can be found here.

  • dwayneallen-coltsTop five remains the same with Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Travis Kelce, Julius Thomas, and Greg Olsen (he of the recent extension).
  • No major changes throughout the list except for Dwayne Allen to 14th from 17th. Of the two Colts tight ends, Allen is the one to own over Colby Fleener.
  • As far as rookies this past year, no one really set the world on fire so their rankings remain the same. However, of the big three from the 2014 class – Eric Ebron, Austin Seferian-Jenkins, and Jace Amaro – it looks like ASJ is ready to take the biggest step. With the probably arrival of Jameis Winston, ASJ will have a more competent  quarterback to get him the ball.
