Todd Gurley

3/27/2015: Todd Gurley is a big-time fantasy football prospect heading into 2015, especially from a dynasty angle. Sure, many expect big things during his first season, so he won’t be a deep sleeper or anything in upcoming 2015 yearly leagues; however, even in redraft, he could be extremely undervalued, much like… Read Spotlight

Hey Starters Nation:

Looking for an early 2015 Fantasy Football Mock Draft / Rankings heading into 2015? This is a dynasty mock draft, so keep in mind that players like Marshawn Lynch, Peyton Manning, Matt Forte, among others, are going to fall much, much further than they would in a early 2015 fantasy football yearly-league mock draft, but this mock draft should be rather useful to all fantasy leaguers, as for the most part things in redraft and dynasty can often times line-up rather well entering January. On that note, enjoy!

ARTICLE: Who are the top 20 Dynasty Fantasy Football Players for 2015?

Are you a dynasty fantasy football nut in need of some 2015 fantasy football content? Well, here is a writeup on the Top 20 Fantasy Football Dynasty Players heading into 2015 and beyond. Note, this is not a fantasy football mock draft, it is more of a value-based board, meaning you will find Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck a lot higher than you’d want to draft them, which ultimately means that I’m suggesting that their values are fantastic when faced off against their early 2015 Average Draft Positions (ADPs). So, again, this is NOT a mock draft, but in many cases will mirror where mocks have some of the players going in early mocks. Enjoy.View Top 20 Dynasty Players

NEWS: AJ Green and Jermaine Gresham both ruled out for today; Trent Richardson active for Wild Card battle.

SMITTY: Get Jermaine Gresham and AJ Green out of playoff fantasy football lineups! As we said before, when AJ Green was doubtful and not ‘out’, we expect to see a whole bunch of Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard. However, if the Colts get out to an early lead, both backs could be limited on the ground, meaning Hill could have more value early on in the game, with Gio being used a lot more later on in the contest. Game flow will determine a lot with those Bengals players, and Mohamed Sanu will surely get a ton of looks with both Gresham and Green out. With the Bengals left without their best player, we will likely see a ton of Andrew Luck to TY Hilton/Coby Fleener/and gang. Looking for Week 18 Fantasy Football Playoff Rankings?

NEWS: AJ Green (concussion) ruled out for Sunday’s Wild Card Playoff game against IND.

SMITTY: He reportedly isn’t cleared via the league’s concussion protocol. Expect Mohamed Sanu to see increased opportunities in this one. For as long as Cincy can continue it, expect them to run, run, run with both Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard. Bernard becomes a big piece of that offense when they need to pass the football, so both are quality plays if we’re talking just Week 1 of the fantasy football playoffs. We fully expect to see a bunch of Andrew Luck to TY Hilton in this Wild Card battle. Looking for Week 18 Fantasy Football Playoff Rankings?

NEWS: AJ Green (concussion) not practicing Friday; doubtful for Wild Card game?

SECOND UPDATE: Updating the below report, AJ Green is now doubtful for Week 18’s Wild Card contest. Mohamed Sanu is a sneaky start in playoff leagues, and Jeremy Hill is a beast-of-a-start in leagues that allow for the resetting of lineups each round.

First UPDATE: This is going to come down to a game-time decision, so if you are thinking of starting AJ Green in any of your fantasy football playoff leagues, be sure to check all the way through to Sunday’s Wild Card kickoff against the Colts. Our guess is that he will play, but counting on him this far away from kickoff (for instance, setting your playoff line-up(s) now and never checking back) is not advised. Regardless, Jeremy Hill will be given a boatload of carries in this one – he is a fine RB1 in Week 1 of the 2015 fantasy football playoffs. Looking for Week 18 Fantasy Football Playoff Rankings?

NEWS: AJ Green (biceps) probable for Week 17.

SMITTY: He is practicing fully and is a go for Week 17. This is great news for those who made it through last week with the stud banged up. Looking for Week 17 Power Rankings?

NEWS: AJ Green injures arm in Week 16; his week 17 availability in doubt?

UPDATE: Updating the report below, AJ Green has indicated that he plans to play Week 17. Early reports are that he has no structural damage, only swelling. Stay tuned for more! Looking for Week 17 Power Rankings?

PREVIOUS UPDATE: He exited the game in the first quarter and missed a decent portion of that first quarter. He returned, but clearly wasn’t 100 percent, and he almost looked like a decoy at times. He couldn’t separate from defenders, or fight for jump balls. It could be a bicep injury, or an elbow injury, it’s tough to say for sure, but he had a wrap on his bicep when he re-entered the game. Green let fantasy owners down in a major way tonight, as most play their fantasy football championship here in Week 16. The massive disappointment makes him a solid buy-low idea in dynasty, though, so jump on our forums and talk dynasty trade ideas if you have Green. If you play your fantasy championship in Week 17, stay tuned for more info on his Week 17 availability. If he sat, Mohamad Sanu would likely return to excellent WR3-type status.

NEWS: Peyton Manning and Emmanuel Sanders both active for Monday Night Week 16.

SMITTY: This is no shock. We expect a nice bounce-back outing out of Peyton Manning and his arsenal of weapons. AJ Green and Jeremy Hill have monster appeal in this one, while Gio Bernard is a flex-like play, but a strong, strong dynasty buy-low, as his value will once again rise.
