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.
Josh Allen - Allen moves up ten spots from QB21 to QB11 after an impressive opening week against the Jets. While this may seem like a dramatic move, it merely puts him back to where he was before the offseason began, and I became fearful his not-so-hot camp was a sign of regression. He also swore he wouldn't run as much, but clearly, he's going to be the same free-wheeling player he was in 2019, and if the Bills can win a lot of game, he's more likely to land an extension and secure 4-5 more years as a starter than I feared a few months ago.
Gardner Minshew - There is something about Gardner Minshew. From his impressive unexpected debut season, charisma, and development right through to his start to the 2020 season, dragging an on paper bad Jacksonville team across the line against the Colts. He was highly efficient and productive. He deserves consideration as a QB2 and maybe more moving forward. One to watch very closely.
Cam Newton - The good news was that Cam Newton looked fit and strong to open the season. The bad news is that one game doesn’t equal 16 and the rapport with his receivers is a work in progress. That said, Newton is the clear number one option for the Patriots and becomes a borderline starting option for the foreseeable future. This ranking could fly in all directions given the potential volatility, but for now, he moves up.
Aaron Rodgers - Some were writing off Rodgers this past offseason with the drafting of Jordan Love in Round 1 plus Rodgers pedestrian (by his standards) touchdown production of the past two seasons. Rodgers sizzled Minnesota in Week 1 and found viable ancillary targets to Davante Adams in Allen Lazard and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. While on the older side, Rodgers still has top-5 upside in a given week or season.
