ARTICLE: The #17 Dynasty Player for 2015 and beyond is…

smitty staff

Below is an early look at 2015, but from a dynasty perspective. So, not only am I predicting for the 2015 season and beyond, keep in mind that the assumption being made here is that if you owned one of these players in a dynasty league, you’d keep them for as long as you want, which changes ‘values’ quite a bit. The scoring assumed here is a standard PPR and the line-up requirements are assumed to be 1QB, 2RBs, 3WRs, 1Flex, 1DST and 1K. Enjoy!

Also, keep in mind this is NOT a Mock Draft, it is a list of 20 players I feel are the top dynasty players of the future. Meaning, I might have a guy ranked super-high and recognize that I wouldn’t draft him that high. Think of it like trying to be ahead of the curve in some cases. In other cases, the players will very much line-up with where you might draft them in a draft.

Week 16 Waiver Wire Adds

NEWS: DeMarco Murray (hand/surgery) has a chance to play Week 16?

SMITTY: According to several reports, the Cowboys are hopeful that DeMarco Murray (hand/surgery) can play in Week 16. This would seem quite reckless if the Cowboys shoved him out onto the field, as they have already given him record-breaking touches this year, a workload that often times destroys a player heading into that next NFL season. Joseph Randle is a must-grab right now for all fantasy owners, as he can be a top 5-10RB this week if Murray sits. Standby for more on this topic, but our guess is that Murray will remain questionable all the way up to game day. Looking for Week 16 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Drew Stanton (knee) to undergo MRI today; Lindley or Thomas could start Week 16.

SMITTY: It looks like it’s a sprained ACL and considered out indefinitely. As we said earlier, we don’t think he will be back this season, at least during the fantasy football season. The Cards might have him available at some point in the playoffs, but Stanton is considered very questionable for anything near 1-2 weeks time. Stay tuned on this one. Looking for Week 15 Power Rankings?

PREVIOUS UPDATE: If Drew Stanton can’t go in Week 16, and we feel he is likely done for the season, the team will turn to one of Logan Thomas or Ryan Lindley. It’s tough to say which passer will get the nod in Week 16, but since Lindley was shoved into the line-up in Week 15, you have to think he’s got the momentum heading into Week 16. Neither is a super-strong option, which makes both Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd tough options to count on here in Weeks 16 and 17 coming up. No passing game, mixed with a tough rushing schedule moving forward (starting with Seattle next week), makes the very talented Kerwynn Williams tough to count on as well.

Folks, here is the Strength Of Schedule For Weeks 15-17. Both Passing and Rushing stats are included, along with average. I hope this helps you all take home your league’s championship. Good luck!

How To Read The Below Table: Everything is by ‘yards allowed’… the 3rd column are the three remaining matchups for each team listed in column 2. The Blue Columns are the ranks of those three opponents against the run… The Yellow Colums are the ranks of those three opponents against the pass… The final three columns are averages.

Examples: Pittsburgh has the easiest rushing schedule in Weeks 15-16 (avg. rank facing is 26th against the run); The Saints have the easiest passing schedule in Weeks 15-16 (avg. rank facing is 31st against the pass); Finally, the Saints have the easiest overall Weeks 15-16 schedule which can be seen by the last column (their average overall opponent rank for both weeks is 24.75).
