Each week, Footballguys staff members will share the big movers in their respective Dynasty Rankings. Since the contributors will rotate, please check in weekly. The focus of this article will be on the “why” more than the movement itself. Dynasty Rankings are fluid and we hope that sharing the rationale will help you in your quest to create dynasties with all your teams. The diversity of rankings will result in a variety of opinions weekly.
Deshaun Watson - I discussed Watson in week five’s edition, and I continue to be impressed with the young signal-caller. In a tough contest in Seattle, Watson was able to hang with Russell Wilson and nearly pull off an upset win in the shootout. He has even shown some improvement on his deep accuracy, which was one of his weaknesses in the college days. Watson has moved up into the Mariota and Winston zone of my dynasty rankings.
Teddy Bridgewater - As injury attrition mounts, let’s not forget about Bridgewater. He’s still out there for free in some of the shallow dynasty leagues. The team is winning on the strength of the defense and run game, but undoubtedly wants to improve their pass game before playoff time. While Keenum has proven to be a serviceable backup, the team knows that a playmaker like Bridgewater will give them a better chance. Bridgewater’s recovery has gone well up to this point, and sources tell us Bridgewater could be ready to play again as soon as week 10. I’m moving him a couple of spots up my board on this good news and I encourage you to pick him up or buy low where possible.
