Dynasty Impact Week 14: The One With Clive Walford in it.

Ugh. Everyone is hurt again. You’re out of the playoffs because you were counting on your awesome Andy Dalton/Tyler Eifert stack. Now you’re sad, and worse, you’re bored because you can’t even trade. Fantasy sucks…....

Dynasty Impact Week 12: The Big Picture, Part One

I’m going to do something a little bit differently this week.  Week 12 had some exciting moments, including one of the most thrilling (and controversial) Monday Night games in recent memory.  That said, at this point in the season, your leagues are beginning to lock down trade windows and most fantasy owners have come to terms with the 2015 season.  Instead of telling you to “sell high on Markus Wheaton“,1 I want to discuss the ways to make the most of what is most likely your last chance to trade and how to prepare for next season. But first, let’s get a few actionable…...

Dynasty Impact Week 8: Everything is Wrong. Everyone is Dead. But Hey Look, it’s Dez!

On Sunday, Dez Bryant was more decoy than Real McCoy, but I’ll stop being coy and come out and say it: It’s still pretty awesome that he’s back. Literally every single player in the NFL was injured on Sunday, and in some cases, players will have a chance to make a Dynasty Impact. Please join me in surveying the post-apocalyptic landscape; you never know what you’ll find sifting through the rubble. I Don’t Care if He’s a Decoy. I would guess that most people who started Dez Bryant on Sunday were disappointed; Dallas and Seattle put on a snoozefest that…...

Dynasty Impact Week 6: Wide Receivers Gone Wild

Of course, I was out of town during the week that my favorite receiver finally put up some respectable WR1 numbers, garbagetime notwithstanding. Alas, Brandin Cooks is not having the season I’d hoped for, but all is not lost: Week 6 showed us numerous examples of receivers who are in the midst of breakouts. Remember when Markus Wheaton was a “thing?” Me neither. Let’s take a look at the dynasty implications from this week’s games…....

Dynasty Impact Week 4: The Karlos Conversation

This edition was almost called the “Karlos Konversation” but I changed my mind. Any time you can arbitrarily replace a “C” with a “K” you probably shouldn’t, though Week 4 touchdown hero Riley Cooper probably disagrees. Regardless, a month of football is in the books and Rishard Matthews and Travis Benjamin are top-12 WRs (with DeAngelo Williams and Darren Sproles as their baffling top-12 RB counterparts). In the dynasty format, it’s probably ill-advised to overreact to one week of football, but a month may be a big enough sample size for us to draw some actionable dynasty conclusions. In this week’s…...

Dynasty Impact Week 3: Devonta FreeMania

Or, “What is an ‘Antonio Andrews?’” If Week 2 was a bloodbath, Week 3 was a bubble bath. Only Ben Roethlisberger suffered an injury of any serious consequence, and it doesn’t affect the dynasty stock of Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell, Martavis Bryant, et al. one bit. The good teams mostly won and the bad teams mostly lost, but some sophomore running backs put on surprising performances that have owners asking questions. Devonter? I hardly knew ‘er! 30-141-3. Oh, and Devonta Freeman added five receptions for 52 yards. Holy sweet goddamn. Anthony Amico thinks redraft owners should sell high on Freeman…...

Dynasty Impact Week 2: Everything is Wrong. Everyone is Dead.

Week 2 was a disaster. Not only did many of my Week 1 reactions seem to be overreactions1, but several key players found themselves subject to injuries of varying seriousness. However, there is also a silver lining: Against this backdrop of blood and guts, multiple rookie running backs have made significant strides in their respective backfields. In this edition of Dynasty Impact, I’ll assess which of the many injuries created buying opportunities, and I’ll also take a look at some of these shiny new RBs. Week 1 Was a Loaded Gun Last week, I tried to convince you that Peyton…...
