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.
Jared Goff - This is not meant to be a 'hot take', but Jared Goff, the bus driver for the Rams prolific offense, is overrated from a fantasy perspective. First, the quarterback position is loaded and second, in a start-1QB format Goff is far from an auto-start each week. MFL start data has Goff with a single week over 75% start rate this season (meaning he fits in the QBBC conversation more start-and-forget-it status), plus his True Impact score and WORP (fantasy wins over replacement player) in fantasy terms are both outside the top-12 of the position after finishing at QB16 in True Impact last season. *True Impact looks at a combination of start rate and points scored compared to the position each week to evaluate a player's usability in fantasy terms*
Jameis Winston - The sporadic poor decisions to get himself into trouble withstanding, Winston is a fantasy beast. Tampa Bay is lighting up the scoreboard through the air and Winston, while slow in timed speed, has a way to extend plays and add rushing production surpassed by a select few other quarterbacks. Winston is bold throwing down the field and has arguably the best set of wide receiver and tight end weapons in the NFL outside of maybe Kansas City. In two games Winston has already logged a higher True Impact score than Matthew Stafford and Andy Dalton for the entire season and more WORP than Russell Wilson.
Ryan Tannehill – The cards are lining up for Tannehill to not be welcomed back to Miami after the season. The Dolphins can save $13 million by letting him walk. He could get a chance to start somewhere next year, but the quarterbacks in similar situations this year (Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater, Tyrod Taylor, etc.) did not fare well.
Tyrod Taylor – With Baker Mayfield cemented into the starting lineup, Taylor makes a great buy opportunity for superflex and two-quarterback leagues. He is likely to start somewhere next season and the lackluster incoming rookie quarterback class will pump up Taylor’s value.
