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.
Patrick Mahomes II - Mahomes' start to the season is historic, and the film shows a confident, aggressive, and poised passer that uses every player at his disposal. It's impossible not to consider him a top-5 asset at the position right now given his age versus the other elite producers.
Baker Mayfield - It's only 3/4ths of a football game, but his poise and obvious leadership qualities are enough to push him into the top 25 in what's a very fluid tier of backup fantasy quarterbacks.
Jimmy Garoppolo - The bloom is off the rose on Garoppolo. He wasn't playing particularly well before tearing his ACL, and the 49ers have a lot of questions after an offseason of over-exuberance on our parts.
Dak Prescott - Prescott's star continues to fall with each passing game of indecision and inaccuracy. There are questions about the supporting talent, but not enough to completely dismiss his poor play. He's no longer worthy of a top-20 ranking until he turns his play around.
Tom Brady - Brady is still a commodity, but his age and the Patriots abysmal play through three weeks reminded me that we don't have many seasons left of Brady as an elite producer. He falls slightly out of the top 10 in favor of a few younger passers.
Baker Mayfield - It is tough to be anything by optimistic for the Browns offense and Mayfield himself after his near-perfect relief appearance and a comeback win against the Jets. The Browns offense came to life after Tyrod Taylor ran it into the ground for two and a half games. Mayfield has a quality collection of weapons and the look of a potential Drew Brees-type signal-caller for the Browns offense.
Marcus Mariota - I continue to be disappointed with Mariota. The Titans offense was a massive underachiever last season and looks to be headed down the same track in 2018. This is bad news for Corey Davis, who looks to be progressing nicely, but also a warning sign for anointing young quarterbacks too soon in their development before proving with multiple strong seasons.
Baker Mayfield – After the strong preseason showing, the former Heisman winner played well in relief of Tyrod Taylor in the upset victory over the Jets on Thursday night. Mayfield has the weapons and talent to be an every-week fantasy starter and will improve over time … which should scare the rest of the league.
Patrick Mahomes II – Mahomes now has 13 passing touchdowns through the first three games of the season. He has spread the ball around to the cache of weapons the Chiefs have on offense. Sure, he cannot keep up this pace, Mahomes has proven doubters wrong so far.
