2014 Dynasty League Rankings

Updated Tuesday, August 5, 2014
My Dynasty rankings are predicated on a three year window. To project six seasons long term is unrealistic and not feasible considering the flux of free agency and the injury impact of the NFL. Along with different Dynasty league formatting. I factor individual talent, supporting cast, system, injury history/character concerns, and perceived value in the eyes of Dynasty players.

Not a fan of the player, but the situation is ripe to yield solid numbers.
Welker-lite benefited from the team's WR injuries in 2013. With no other reliable WRs on the roster, he'll have a chance to repeat.
Should take some steps forward in year two. Wispy and undersized, but a decent fit for Pittsburgh's vertical game.

54. Kelvin Benjamin, WR, CAR (R) - Age 25

I think he'll be a bust. He was a first round pick though and the Panthers have nothing else at WR.

55. Dwayne Bowe, WR, FA - Age 31

A shell of his glory days. He's still the most talented receiver on the Chiefs. Hope that he can regain his old form. He's not THAT old.
Sliding into irrelevance. May yet have one or two useful years in him though.

57. Kenny Britt, WR, LAR - Age 27

Chronic disappointment. The Rams are thin at WR, so maybe he can do something.

58. Hakeem Nicks, WR, NYG - Age 28

Fallen off considerably since his peak. He had a lot of talent at one point, but injuries have taken their toll. Hope for the best. Expect te worst.

59. Golden Tate, WR, DET - Age 27

He'll have his moments, but is better suited to best-ball formats. Too many mouths to feed in Detroit to expect consistent numbers from Tate.

60. Marlon Brown, WR, BAL - Age 25

Had a nice rookie year and could have a bigger role as a sophomore.
Just a face in the crowd now after leaving the friendly confines of Buffalo. We know he can produce if fed targets. Opportunity is uncertain in SF with so many other competitors.

62. Robert Woods, WR, BUF - Age 24

Seems destined for a career as a mediocre complementary target. Still has some talent.

63. Aaron Dobson, WR, NE - Age 25

High draft pick a year ago with a nice opportunity. Not a believer in his skills though.
Dynamic slot weapon could benefit from lack of quality WRs on the Browns. Sneaky short-term upside in PPR formats.
Constantly injured. If he can somehow stay in the lineup, he can catch a lot of passes.
An intriguing flyer for the future.

67. Doug Baldwin, WR, SEA - Age 27

Decent emergency depth. Nothing more.

68. James Jones, WR, FA - Age 32

Just an okay player. Oakland's bare cupboard at WR could work in his favor. He's likely to be pretty mediocre though.

69. Chris Givens, WR, PHI - Age 26

Seemed to regress after a promising rookie year. Needs to show that he's more than just a deep threat.
Showed some nice flashes in his rookie season. Could have real value if Boldin and Crabtree are gone. Good stash candidate.

71. Riley Cooper, WR, FA - Age 28

Mediocre player in a friendly system. Return of Maclin and drafting of Matthews will likely hurt his numbers.
Never really progressed after his promising rookie year.

73. Martavis Bryant, WR, PIT (R) - Age 24

Tall deep threat. Unlikely to pan out, but there's some upside if he hits.

74. Kenny Stills, WR, MIA - Age 24

Chris Givens all over again.
He couldn't produce in Pittsburgh. I don't expect much better in Denver. Just keeping the seat warm until Latimer is ready.
