Tyrod Taylor benched in Buffalo
Tyrod Taylor - QB, BUF

The Bills have benched Tyrod Taylor in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman.

Dynasty Analysis

Taylor's in-season value take a massive hit, though the Bills could turn back to him if Peterman fails to impress. After 38 games, apparently throwing for 47 touchdowns and just 15 interceptions just isn't enough for Buffalo. It will, however, be enough for another team next season if and when the Bills release Taylor this off-season. Expect him to earn a starting job somewhere else next year. Taylor remains a hold in a dynasty league as a quarterback who has a cloudy future but one still with scoring potential.

Nathan Peterman earns starting nod for the Bills
Nathan Peterman - QB, BUF

Nathan Peterman will start at quarterback for the Bills in Sunday's game against the Chargers in Los Angeles.

Dynasty Analysis

This is a crushing blow to the short-term value of Tyrod Taylor and gives Peterman a shot at decent value the rest of the season. He'll have a new weapon in Kelvin Benjamin, though expectations should be tempered as the Buffalo offense will surely run through LeSean McCoy. Peterman wasn't spectacular in the preseason but any young quarterback is always worth a stash in a dynasty league.

Orleans Darkwa continues to perform
Orleans Darkwa - RB, NYG

Orleans Darkwa led the Giants backfield in production once again this Sunday

Dynasty Analysis

16 touches for 88 yards isn't exciting against the 49ers, but it was enough to lead the Giants backfield by a hefty margin. While he is a serviceable flex if you've face injuries, this is still a situation to avoid for dynasty purposes due to playing on what looks to be a bad team that could easily invest in the position before he gets a chance to be truly relevant. He is a good candidate to shop ahead of playoffs if you aren't contending or if he is only depth for you. His value may be peaking.

Sterling Shepard explodes as featured receiver

Sterling Shepard caught 11 of 13 targets for 142 yards against the 49ers Sunday

Dynasty Analysis

While we can't expect this performance often - it was the 49ers after all - it does give hope for his future with the team despite signing Brandon Marshall this past offseason. When given opportunity, Shepard has done well to date in his career. As the team may be heading into what appears to be a rebuild, it will be important to see how involved Shepard is in the Giants plans.

Devonta Freeman suffers concussion against DAL.
Devonta Freeman - RB, ATL

Devonta Freeman left the game early on Sunday with a concussion, his second in four months.

Dynasty Analysis

Devonta Freeman has been an incredibly durable running back with the exception of this season. Two concussions this close together definitely does not bode well for Freeman's future, but he isn't dead and gone. Take advantage of this buy-low window on Freeman and you'll reap the benefits next season.

Tevin Coleman performs well with feature workload.
Tevin Coleman - RB, ATL

Tevin Coleman ran for 83 yards on 20 carries and grabbed one catch for five yards in the Falcons victory over the Cowboys.

Dynasty Analysis

Tevin Coleman showed that he could be an adequate feature-type back this week after Devonta Freeman went down with a concussion. Tevin's price has always exceeded his return. This game probably doesn't help that situation. Tevin owners just need to hope he winds up somewhere else after his contract expires.

Corey Davis leads Titans in targets this week
Corey Davis - WR, TEN

Corey Davis was targeted 10 times in the Titans win against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Dynasty Analysis

Corey Davis was very close to having a great day. He grabbed four catches for 48 yards and almost got into the end zone, but instead fumbled across the goal line leaping in an attempt to score. The Titans clearly want to get Corey involved early and often so he and Marcus Mariota can continue to grow some chemistry down the stretch this season. It's clear that Davis is already the best wide receiver on the team. It's only a matter of time before his 9-10 targets per week start turning into some solid production. Buy while you still can.

DeMarco Murray scores three TDs in Titans win.
DeMarco Murray - RB, TEN

DeMarco didn't impress with efficiency, but still found the end zone three times against the Bengals.

Dynasty Analysis

DeMarco Murray is still one of the most important players on the Titans. He doesn't wow anymore like he used to, but he gets the job done in every aspect of the position. Derrick Henry's brick hands dropped an easy screen pass, proving yet again that DeMarco is the only Tennessee running back to be trusted in the passing game. In fact, when the game was on the line Marcus Mariota trusted DeMarco to beat a defender for a touchdown on a pass in the flat. DeMarco actually beat three defenders on the play to win the game for the Titans. He's still a trustworthy asset, and will be for this year and possibly next.

Adam Thielen Torches Washington
Adam Thielen - WR, MIN

Adam Thielen had his best game of the year with 8 catches for 166 yards and a touchdown against Washington, thriving despite a difficult matchup and a full complement of weapons around him.

Dynasty Analysis

If anybody is still reticent of Thielen as one of dynasty's elite options, it is time to bounce. Thielen is locked in as an offensive centerpiece in Minnesota and genuine premium dynasty asset.

Jared Goff Has Second Career Day in as Many Weeks
Jared Goff - QB, LAR

Jared Goff explodes for 355 passing yards and three passing touchdowns as he led The Rams past The Texans, 33-7. Goff recorded his third 300+ yard passing game this season and his second in a row.

Dynasty Analysis

Goff is primed to move into the discussion as a QB1 if he can post a solid game against The Vikings next week. Should Goff approach 250 passing yards and two passing touchdowns then look for his stock to skyrocket in the coming weeks.

Martellus Bennett makes Patriots debut.

After being claimed of waivers by the New England Patriots, the once injured reserved Martellus Bennett suited up for the matchup vs the Denver Broncos, playing limited snaps.

Dynasty Analysis

A fantasy dissapoinment in Green Bay, Martellus slides into his old role in New England. While the mysterious injury may still factor in to his role moving forward, Bennett is less than a year away from producing over 700 yards and 7 touchdowns. His fantasy appeal may be rebounding.

Marquise Goodwin has 83-yard touchdown reception

After blowing by Janoris Jenkins, Goodwin hauled in a deep pass and took it to the house for an 83-yard touchdown. What is even more impressive was that he played a couple of hours after his newborn child passed away. It is truly heartbreaking what he and his family have gone through and it is remarkable that he even suited up on Sunday.

Dynasty Analysis

Goodwin was an off-season flier after he landed with San Francisco and now finds himself at the top of San Francisco's depleted receiver depth chart. He might be an even better play when Jimmy Garapollo takes over at quarterback.

Crowell Looks Good With Solid Stat Line
Isaiah Crowell - RB, CLE

Crowell carried 16 times for 90 yards and a score and added a catch for five yards on two targets. He was featured in a competitive game, and begs a chick or egg question. He did himself a service with free agency awaiting at the end of the year.

Dynasty Analysis

With just a little bit of volume the last two games, Crowell has done as much as can be asked for behind a banged up line and mostly inept quarterback play. Potentially having a new home next year and still appearing to be quite capable, he is somewhere between the hold and buy labels in dynasty.

Dez Bryant catches 4 passes for 39 yards
Dez Bryant - WR, DAL

Dez Bryant caught four passes on eight targets for 39 yards.

Dynasty Analysis

It was another lack luster fantasy performance from Dez. His inability to convert some of his targets is hurting his stock in fantasy. He's struggling to put up WR2 numbers on a consistent basis. The days of him being considered a top-ten wide receiver is over.

C.J. Beathard has best game of his young career
C.J. Beathard - QB, SFO

Beathard threw for 288 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception. He also ran for 15 yards and had another touchdown on the ground.

Dynasty Analysis

In what could be his last start for awhile, Beathard played his best game as a 49er. However, he could be replaced by Jimmy Garapollo as early as next week, leaving his future role in doubt. I would not be too excited about any shares of Beathard, but he could see the field again some time down the road.

Jason Witten catches 5 passes in garbage time
Jason Witten - TE, DAL

Jason Witten caught seven passes for 59 yards.

Dynasty Analysis

Witten was silent with just two receptions going into the fourth quarter until he was targeted heavily in garbage time. Dak Prescott likes to target him late in games while playing from behind, because the middle of the field is usually wide open for Witten to operate in. Expect Witten to get more looks during Ezekiel Elliott's suspension.

Carlos Hyde Nearly Eclipses Century Mark
Carlos Hyde - RB, SFO

Carlos Hyde nearly had his second 100-yard rushing game of the season, turning 17 carries into 98 yards against the Giants. He also caught two passes for six more yards.

Dynasty Analysis

What a difference a positive game script can make for a running back. The 49ers played one of the few teams actually worse than them, the New York Giants. Having a lead for a majority of the game helped Hyde have a productive game. If only he could play the Giants every week.

Backup Matt Breida also had a nice game, rushing for 55 yards and a touchdown. Keep an eye on the distribution of carries over the rest of the season, but Hyde's role still seems secure for now.

Dak Prescott scores his 5th rushing touchdown
Dak Prescott - QB, DAL

Dak Prescott completed 20 of his 30 pass attempts for 176 yards while also rushing for 42 yards and one touchdown.

Dynasty Analysis

Prescott was sacked eight times for 50 yards in this game. Starting left tackle, Tyron Smith did not play due to an injury which caused a lot of problems Dallas' offensive line. His replacement, Chaz Green, allowed five of the team's eight sacks. This caused total chaos for the entire offense and disrupted Prescott's ability to consistently move the chains. Ezekiel Elliott has five more games to serve on his suspension and this will be a great opportunity to see how Prescott and the Cowboys' offense can operate without him.

Aaron Jones carted off with knee injury
Aaron Jones - RB, GBP

Green Bay running back Aaron Jones was carted off the field with a left knee injury Sunday.

Dynasty Analysis

The hits just keep on coming. Two weeks ago, Jones looked like a player who on the verge of stardom. Now, after a clunker of a game last week where Ty Montgomery seemed to reclaim his role as the back of choice, Jones has now sustained what could possibly be a serious injury. We'll monitor the situation but it's clear Jones' day is done.

Drew Stanton still not terrible...but pretty bad
Drew Stanton - QB, ARI

Drew Stanton completed 24 of 47 passes in the Cardinals week 10 loss to the Seahawks. He managed 243 yards and a touchdown.

Dynasty Analysis

Considering it was a bad matchup, Drew Stanton was still pretty bad. But on the whole, he wasn't Kevin Hogan bad, so that's' something. A number of drops didn't help him out any, and while he seemed to find some use for tight end Jermaine Gresham who caught the lone touchdown (and dropped another) there is still no dynasty value here.
