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 – It is time to admit that Josh Allen is a viable fantasy option. He has played well, and it is apparent he should move up the rankings. While still unsure about his long-term passing, Brian Daboll (offensive coordinator) has done an outstanding job putting Allen in positions to succeed. The route patterns have been phenomenal, and Allen has made the throws. The addition of Stefon Diggs has helped more than expected, too.
Ryan Tannehill – Tannehill is a legitimate fantasy QB1 at a discounted cost. Still just 32 years of age, Tannehill is athletic and runs the Titans offense with precision. I expect his numbers to jump once he has both A.J. Brown and Corey Davis healthy.
Justin Herbert - Justin Herbert has been terrific to start his career. He handled a surprise start well in week two and his performance to date should secure his status as a long-term starter for the Chargers outside of a bad coaching decision. Herbert’s 8.7 yards per attempt is a healthy number and he ranks in the top 10 of completion percentage over expectation. His strong start puts him on a better track than younger quarterbacks like Daniel Jones and Sam Darnold in particular.
Dak Prescott – Dallas will be lucky to win five games this season. Their defense is a turnstile and they are going to need to score 30 or more points a game. They have three of the best receivers in the league and I’ve been banking that Prescott will throw for 5000 yards this season. With almost 1700 yards passing through the first four games, he’s well on the way to that mark. Prescott won’t replace Lamar Jackson or Patrick Mahomes II as the top quarterbacks for a dynasty team, but I would have no issues taking him as the #3 quarterback.
Carson Wentz – The Eagles are struggling this year, even though they might actually win the division. Wentz has looked very average this season, and through the first 4 games, he has seven interceptions compared to just 4 touchdowns and less than 1000 yards total passing. Until the Eagles can get him some better receiving options, Wentz is more of a backup fantasy quarterback at this point.
