Hello, and welcome to the 2022 version of FantasyGuru’s Dynasty Watch!
It will be my fourth season writing this article, and I’m excited to continue providing in-depth dynasty-related content.
While fantasy points are scored in the same fashion weekly, there are some distinct differences between dynasty and season-long fantasy football evaluations. This article aims to break down player movement from a dynasty-based point of view and provide the proper context needed to make informed decisions.
DYNASTY RATINGS UPDATE
Rating Scale = 1-100 (1 being the lowest, 100 being the highest)
Player – New Rating (Rating Points lost/gained since the last update) – Reasoning (if needed)
EX: Saquon Barkley – 92 (+1) – Looked good in training camp
- Blue = Player was previously unrated
- Red = Lost Points Since Last Update
- Green = Gained Points Since Last Update
JOE BURROW – 99 (+2) – Burrow is going to be an elite fantasy QB for a long team, and has an incredible supporting cast.
TREVOR LAWRENCE – 99 (+2) – Lawrence has been undeniably great the last couple of games, and I believe it’s a sign of things to come. It’s better to be early on Lawrence than late.
TREY LANCE – 77 (+2) – 2022 season is almost over, so Lance’s lack of season-long value is less important.
MATTHEW STAFFORD – 71 (+2) – Stafford confirmed he’s not going to retire, so should get a starting QB back in 2023.
MAC JONES – 67 (-3) – Jones chances at being a starter beyond this year are looking lower and lower as the weeks go along.
DESMOND RIDDER – 67 (+2) – Limited but solid first start.
SAQUON BARKLEY – 95 (-2) – A ton of touches this year, and is heading into middle ages for RB careers.
JONATHAN TAYLOR – 95 (-2) – Injury filled year got even worse in Week 15.
BREECE HALL – 82 (+2) – Hall should be able to make a nice comeback in 2023.
RHAMONDRE STEVENSON – 75 (+2) – Excellent 2022 campaign.
JK DOBBINS – 70 (+10) – Dobbins may not be fully back, but he’s shown explosivneess and has regained an every week fantasy relevant role. This is a big shift from how we perceived him earlier in the year.
JAVONTE WILLIAMS – 68 (+1) – End of the 2022 season is coming, and Williams should be back for 2023.
AJ DILLON – 62 (+2) – Dillon has been playing better of late, and is finally getting the fantasy opportunity many expected heading into the year.
DAVID MONTGOMERY – 62 (+5) – Montgomery’s career could be extended if he can continue to play with Justin Fields.
JAMES CONNER – 60 (+10) – Conner makes yet another comeback, and has looked great despite the Cardinals season falling apart.
CAM AKERS – 58 (+5) – Akers has looked like a new man since they reinstalled him into the lineup this past month. Hope for the future.
TYLER ALLGEIER – 57 (+5) – Allgeier is up to 827 total yards on the year, and has been playing much better than I expected. Should have a shot at touches in 2023.
CHASE EDMONDS – 45 (-12) – Didn’t put him low enough intially.
GARRETT WILSON – 90 (+4) – Already one of the best WRs in the NFL.
CHRIS OLAVE – 86 (+2) – Excellent rookie year.
DRAKE LONDON – 84 (+2) – The switch to Desmond Ridder is bringing more passing volume.
STEFON DIGGS – 83 (-1) – Not putting up elite results of late, and isn’t getting any younger
JAHAN DOTSON – 79 (+2) – Continues to play well on a small sample size, and is a big part of Washington’s future plans.
JERRY JEUDY – 78 (+2) – Playing well in just about the worst circumstances possible.
CHRISTIAN WATSON – 75 (+5) – Explosive weapon who’s really developed in the second half of 2022.
ZAY JONES – 60 (N/A) – I somehow didn’t have him ranked. Jones has been excellent this year, and clearly has great chemistry with
TYQUAN THORNTON – 53 (+5) – Should see more opportunity at the end of the year with the other Patriots WRs struggling.
ALLEN ROBINSON – 50 (-5) – Robinson’s career is probably done soon.
MARK ANDREWS – 93 (-1) – The long term health of Lamar Jackson is a legimate question.
DALLAS GOEDERT – 82 (+2) – Off Injured Reserve and might be able to help fantasy owners in the playoffs.
DARREN WALLER – 68 (+2) – Same as Goedert.
ADAM TRAUTMAN – 59 (-2) – Trautman has been completely surpassed by Juwan Johnson. Not a good sign.
JUWAN JOHNSON – 56 (+2) – Johnson has emerged as a major weapon when Andy Dalton is starting.
JAKE FERGUSON – 55 (+6) – There’s a real chance that Dalton Schultz doesn’t re-sign with the Cowboys, and if that’s the case, there could be major value here.
