The Dynasty Aftermath: Week Eleven

Ken Kelly

Welcome to DLF’s Dynasty Aftermath. This staple article is our longest running signature piece as we have a little fun after a tough week at the Dynasty League Football office. You’ll find this article will review the week’s happenings in a variety of ways and help set you up for the coming weeks as we spin around the league in the way we know best.

Thanksgiving is upon us and I couldn’t think of anything better for a theme than Thanksgiving.  Have a great one everyone and enjoy the day of football!


Week Eleven Fantasy MVP

Another week, another step forward as Dak Prescott completed 27-of-36 passes for 301 yards and three touchdowns in yet another win for the Cowboys and likely his fantasy owners all over the country. Prescott is locked in as a lower-end QB1 at this point with his ability to pick up rushing yards. Right now, he’s in the handful of players at the position I wouldn’t want to see in my opponent’s lineup.

Week Eleven Fantasy LVP

Cincinnati’s season went from bad to worse when AJ Green went down with a hamstring injury without catching a single pass. Unfortunately, that result buried tons of teams as they received a goose egg from likely their best player.

Gut Checks

I’d be worried if I needed AJ Green to win the title this year.

I’d be worried if I was playing against Russell Wilson. Folks, he’s back.

I’d be worried if I was expecting consistency from Cameron Brate.

I’d be worried if I had given up on Rashad Jennings.

I’d be worried if I wasn’t noticing Julian Edelman heating up.

I’d be worried if I wasn’t putting Jamison Crowder in my lineup and just walking away every week.

I’d be worried if I needed Gio Bernard for the stretch run.

I’d be worried if I owned Matt Jones.

I’d be worried if I thought Dion Lewis was just going to push James White to the side.

I’d be worried if I needed an extra point from anyone to get bonus points from a seemingly inevitable overtime.

I’d be worried if I wasn’t really looking at Tyler Boyd with AJ Green out.

I’d be worried if I didn’t think Kirk Cousins could be a QB1 on a championship fantasy team.

I’d be worried if I had given up on Tajae Sharpe.

I’d be worried if I owned DeAndre Hopkins and thought I needed to sell. It will get better, though it might get worse first.

I’d be worried if I thought Jared Cook was all of a sudden back.

I’d be worried if I didn’t think I could get some really good garbage points from Carlos Hyde and Colin Kaepernick. This is fantasy, not reality.

I’d be worried if I owned Marvin Jones. It has fallen off a cliff, folks.

I’d be worried if I wasn’t paying attention to Malcolm Mitchell.

I’d be worried if I wasn’t thinking Rishard Matthews was a viable option.

I’d be worried if I was expecting consistency from Will Fuller.

I’d be worried if I had Carson Palmer. Sigh. I’ve owned Palmer on one dynasty team for the better part of his entire career after drafting him as a rookie (traded and re-acquired once). This looks like the end.

A Look Ahead to Hot Names on the Waiver Wire

Remember, we focus on the lesser names here. There’s really no need to be telling people of your skill level to pick up players you undoubtedly have like Spencer Ware, Chris Hogan, Mohamed Sanu or Tyrell Williams. We’re also not going to list obvious names you likely have rostered like Wendell Smallwood. Pay close attention because we tend to be ahead of the curve. The wire is getting really thin at this point!

1.) Christine Michael, RB GB

Just in case someone had really given up.

2.) Rex Burkhead, RB CIN

Bernard is out and the Bengals need bodies.

3.) Alex Collins, RB SEA

He’s likely rostered in your league, but the Seahawks may have jumped the shark by letting Michael go and seeing CJ Prosise get hurt.

Previous suggestions: Jalen Richard, Quincy Enunwa, Cole Beasley, Tyreek Hill, Dwayne Washington, Jeremy Kerley, Jacoby Brissett, Cody Kessler, Fozzy Whittaker, Colt McCoy, Kenny Britt, Kenneth Farrow, Trey Burton, Colin Kaepernick, Orleans Darkwa, Raheem Mostert, Trevone Boykin, Cameron Brate, Zach Zenner, Terron Ward, Eddie Royal, Brice Butler, Xavier Grimble, Chester Rogers, Cameron Meredith, Jacquizz Rodgers, Andrew Hawkins, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Peyton Barber, Rob Kelley, Antone Davis, Mike Davis, Bryce Petty, Geno Smith, DeJuan Harris, Percy Harvin, Tre McBride, Bishop Sankey, Terron Ward, Damien Williams, Kapri Bibbs, Ronnie Hillman, Taylor Gabriel, Jalin Marshall, Roger Lewis, Bryce Treggs, Fitzgerald Touissant, Troymaine Pope.
