Hello Owners and thank you for reading. Today, I will be presenting my final article of the 2021 Dynasty Owner season. After this week, all the Dynasty Owner champions will be crowned. A Chase for the Ring winner will also be named. This is obviously a very exciting time for us here at Dynasty Owner. In addition to people winning their leagues, this is also a time to start fresh. After this week’s games, everyone will be equals again. Everyone will enter the off-season with just as much opportunity as the next Dynasty Owner. As I said, this is a very exciting time of the year for everyone.

The final article of the year will be where I give out the Value of the Year awards. I will present an award for each position as well as an overall winner. I have a lot to talk about so let’s do it.

Value Of The Year Winners

Quarterback

There were actually quite a few nominees for this award. There were six in total. They were:

  • Jalen Hurts
  • Lamar Jackson
  • Taylor Heinicke
  • Josh Allen
  • Mac Jones
  • Justin Herbert

While all six of these quarterbacks have played quite well over the 2021 season, only two had a realistic chance of winning. Hurts and Jackson have the lowest salaries, and they are lower by quite a bit when compared to the other nominees (except Heinicke). In the end, Jalen Hurts just had too good of a season combined with a very cheap salary for him not to win. He is the Quarterback Value of the Year for 2021.

Here is what I wrote about Hurts two weeks ago…

“So, we have a Top 10 quarterback with a Top 10 salary combined with the best DD/FP of any quarterback. Does it get better than that? Apart from Week 12, Hurts has been one of the most consistent quarterbacks in all of fantasy.”

Excluding Week 17, Hurts is the QB10 in terms of total Dynasty Owner fantasy points (344.0) and he is the QB1 in terms of Dynasty Dollars per Fantasy Point (DD/FP) at $4,379.  Congratulations to everyone who has Hurts on their Dynasty Owner roster as there was no better value at quarterback this year.

Running Back

The running back position had only three nominees. They were:

  • Myles Gaskin
  • James Robinson
  • Jonathan Taylor

I will mention that Damien Harris put on a strong run towards the end of the season (especially Week 16). However, the trophy belongs to Myles Gaskin. As I mentioned two articles ago…

“I’m usually writing about players who overperformed their projected value because of exceptional fantasy output. Gaskin seems to be the opposite of that idea. Gaskin has led the running back values virtually all season despite only being RB19 on the season in terms of fantasy points. He has had a roller coaster type season which has left several Dynasty Owners disappointed in his overall touches (especially receptions).”

It’s hard to believe a player that is viewed as a disappointment can win, but that’s exactly what can happen when you have a salary of $651,694. I would have loved to name Jonathan Taylor as the winner, but the reality is that he would have had to outperform Gaskin three-fold in order to win. That didn’t happen and Gaskin took home the hardware with 163.4 Dynasty Owner fantasy points and a salary of $651,694. Gaskin finished the season as RB23 in terms of fantasy points, and RB1 in terms of DD/FP.

Wide Receivers

The wide receiver position was a close one especially over the second half of the season. While there were really only two players in actual contention, here is the full list of nominees…

  • Hunter Renfrow
  • Diontae Johnson
  • Deebo Samuel

I included Deebo mainly as a formality. He had virtually no chance to win even with a 26.1 Dynasty Owner fantasy point performance in Week 16. The two person race came down to Renfrow and Johnson.  Here is a breakdown of their seasons as a whole…

PlayerSalaryReceptionsReceiving YardsTDsDOFPDOFP per Game
Hunter Renfrow$708,987929496221.914.8
Diontae Johnson$1,070,241921,0797246.217.6

The winner this year is Renfrow. His salary is roughly two-thirds of Johnson’s, and his production was largely the same. This award is especially important because of the draft capital and/or trade value that you had to give up when acquiring Renfrow was minimal. He was being drafted in roughly the 15th round. What an amazing season from Renfrow, and it’s one that he will attempt to recreate (or improve on) in 2022. Renfrow finished as the WR13 for total Dynasty Owner fantasy points (221.9) and WR1 for DD/FP ($3,195).

Tight End

The tight end nominees were:

  • Mark Andrews
  • Dalton Schultz
  • Dawson Knox

As I mentioned last week, all three are having career years, but one of them was just too dominant to ignore. That player is Mark Andrews ($863,290). When this regular season concludes, Andrews will have over 100 receptions, over 1,200 receiving yards, and at least 10 touchdowns. This is a truly remarkable feat for a player who was perennially considered a low volume tight end. Andrews has earned himself the 4-year, $56 million contract ($14 million per year) that he signed back in September. Congratulations to those of you who owned Andrews this year. I have a feeling it will be a long time before we encounter a tight end value like this again

Andrews finished the season as the TE1 for total Dynasty Owner fantasy points (271.7) and also the TE1 for DD/FP ($3,177). Let me put it this way, if Andrews was labeled as a wide receiver, he would be the WR6 on the season. Not only that, but he would be the WR1 in terms of DD/FP. I hate to belabor the point too much, but I think it’s worth stating again:

“I have a feeling it will be a long time before we encounter a tight end value like this again.”

Value of the Year

And now we come to the final award. This player was the ultimate value for the 2021 Dynasty Owner season. This player not only dominated every player at his position, but he also dominated every player in value. The player is the aforementioned Mark Andrews.

When we have a player that is number one in points and value, that is an automatic lock for Value of the Year. Last year, no player double dipped like this. In fact, the only player who was close was Andrews. He lost to Dalton Schultz by about $200 in the DD/FP category and was TE6 in terms of overall Dynasty Owner fantasy points.

Enjoy the win Dynasty Owners as Andrews value period ends after this season when his new $14 million per year contract kicks in.

Well folks, that is all I have for you. It has been a pleasure to present my content to you over this season. I know you’ll be seeing a lot of me this off-season as well as next year. Message me on Twitter (@dynastyjerk) and let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I would appreciate it if you followed @Dynasty_Owner on Twitter as well as subscribed to Dynasty Owner on YouTube. Take care everyone and be safe.
