In this two-part series, we will take a look at every NFL team and examine the dynasty outlook for select players on those squads. It will not be an exhaustive list, but it will give dynasty general managers some actionable advice about how to make their dynasty teams better.
There is a real chance that Zach Moss will be the primary ball carrier for the Bills by the end of this year. While Devin Singletary was able to outproduce Frank Gore last season, there is doubt that he will outshine the sturdier and more powerful Moss, especially in goal-line situations. Moss is also a better pass protector at this point in his career, which will probably help him to get snaps over Singletary. Buying low on Zach Moss and selling high on Singletary in dynasty leagues feels like the correct move.
Tua Tagovailoa is going behind Joe Burrow in both rookie and startup drafts and that is a mistake. Burrow is good in his own right and will be the day one starter for his team on an offense that has more of the personnel in place that it needs in order to have success. Still, this is dynasty football, so looking at the long-term outcomes of these players is the measuring stick. When examining their raw skills, it is clear that Tagovailoa is more accurate and evades pressure with movement more regularly, two things that are predictive of a more prolific career. Also, it may be better that Tagovailoa is sitting behind Ryan Fitzpatrick for at least part of the season. We often underrate the value of mentorship that an older quarterback offers.
New England Patriots
Cam Newton is going to make a comeback with the Patriots. There is little evidence to suggest that his injuries in the last two years are indicative of a chronic problem. Even if Newton ends up not being the physical wonder we have seen in years past, Bill Belichick’s ability to scheme an offense that plays to Newton’s strengths should not be underestimated. The bargain-basement window on Newton is closed, but there still may be an opportunity to buy at a discount before the season starts.
