Determining whether a player, NFL team or Dynasty Owner team is far and away better than everyone else is subjective at best. There are metrics, like rushing yards, receptions, receiving yards, passing yards, TDs, and Dynasty Owner fantasy points that can be used to evaluate, but sometimes the eye test is the best way to separate the top players and teams.
Not so much this week in the NFL as one RB played so well that he was far and away better than everyone else and the clear choice for Player of the Week. He outsourced everyone else by a wide margin and the feat was more impressive because RBs haven’t won the Player of the Week honor as much as you might think.
In the NFL, the best team is the Philadelphia Eagles at 10-1. However, they are not even far and away the top team in their division as the Dallas Cowboys are only two games out of first place at 8-3. Instead, the Minnesota Vikings have the widest division lead, a whopping five game advantage over the second place Detroit Lions. Most people who follow the NFL would say that Russell Wilson ($35,000,000) and the Denver Broncos are far and away the most disappointing team in the NFL this season. However, the worst team is probably the 1-9-1 Houston Texans as every other team has at least 3 wins.
The best division is a battle between the AFC East and NFC East as none of the eight teams in those two divisions has a losing record. In contrast, the NFC South is far and away the worst division as no team has a winning record. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers sit on top of that division with a 5-6 record. The four NFC South teams have combined to win three non-conference games with an overall non-conference record of 3-12.
We don’t have divisions or conferences in Dynasty Owner but can compare leagues. The best league might be one that has the teams who have scored the most Dynasty Owner fantasy points, or maybe it’s the league with the most teams in the top 100 of the Chase for the Ring. If you prefer a competitive league, then maybe one with a bunch of teams close in record and points scored might be the one you consider far and away better than the rest of the leagues.
Undefeated teams are far and away the best team in their respective leagues at this point since they are 12-0 and have beaten every other team in the league. Even if there is an 11-1 team in one of those leagues, the 11-1 team still lost to the undefeated team, so the undefeated team is better. In our first look at the undefeated teams, we had 11 of them inside the top 100 of the Chase for the Ring. That’s more undefeated teams at this point than last year, but how many of them got caught by their Week 1 opponent looking at a second chance at victory.
|Team Name||League||Week 12 Result||Chase Position||Change|
|Blaze’s Backyard Burners||28287||Win||1st||None|
|juan blanco||55318||Win||3rd||Up 1|
|The Oracle 🙌||71014||Win||4th||Down 1|
|Thee Camel Toe Jockey||66645||Win||8th||Down 1|
|The Tough Guys||31625||Loss||14th||Down 4|
|Rotting Husk of Al Davis||27444||Win||27th||None|
|TPC Murder Hornets||27466||Loss||43rd||Down 15|
|All Outta Bubble Gum||156854||Win||79th||Up 26|
|Big Grizz||66644||Win||97th||Down 21|
We only lost two undefeated teams as The Tough Guys and TPC Murder Hornets both lost. The Tough Guys were in 14th place, but are now in 18th place, while the TPC Murder Hornets dropped from 43rd place to 58th place after their loss. The biggest mover among the undefeated teams was All Outta Bubble Gum who moved up 26 spots into 53rd place. Big Grizz was just inside the top 100 last week at 97th place and while they won, their point total was low at 131.52 and so they dropped 21 spots in the Chase for the Ring standings.
The Match-up of the Week featured a Chase for the Ring contender going up against a high-scoring but “unlucky” team with a losing record who need wins to make the playoffs. It was a high-scoring match-up and both teams had far and away more points than the rest of the teams in their league.
In contrast, nobody has been pulling away in the Chase for the Ring standings. There hasn’t been a lot of movement in the past couple of weeks and no one is making themselves far and away the leading contender. We’ll see if that changed after Week 12.
For the purposes of this article, all statistics, ADP and Dynasty Owner roster percentages were current as of the morning of November 30th.
Dynasty Owner Player of the Week
Our twelfth Dynasty Owner Player of the Week for the 2022 season is a first-time winner of this award. He set the record for the best value as Player of the Week for the season and for a full calendar year. He was nearly 20.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points ahead of his closest competitor. Finally, he scored more Dynasty Owner fantasy points than any RB in Dynasty Owner this season. The winner is: Josh Jacobs
Josh Jacobs ($2,983,350) had himself a week in which he was far and away better than anyone else. The Raiders RB had 57.3 Dynasty Owner fantasy points (229 rushing yards, 6 receptions, 74 receiving yards, 2 TDs). He received a 6.0 point bonus for over 200 yards rushing and 3.0 bonus points for his 86-yard TD run to win the Raiders game against the Seahawks by a score of 40-34 in overtime. That 86 yard run was worth 23.6 Dynasty Owner fantasy points on its own (8.6 for the rush itself, 6.0 for the TD, 6.0 for going over 200 rushing yards and 3.0 for the clutch score). That might be far and away the most points on a single play in Dynasty Owner history.
Jacobs scored far and away more Dynasty Owner fantasy points (19.8) than his nearest competitor, Chargers QB Justin Herbert ($6,644,688) who had 37.5 Dynasty Owner fantasy points. Jacobs had 72 more rushing yards than his nearest competitor, Eagles QB Jalen Hurts ($1,506,292) and 86 more than Miles Sanders ($1,337,544). Sanders had an impressive game with 33.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points, but Jacobs beat him by a whopping 24.3 Dynasty Owner fantasy points. This was by far and away Jacobs’ best career performance as his next best rushing game was in Week 5 when he had 154 rushing yards and his next best Dynasty Owner fantasy point total was in Week 7 when he had 38.5 points. In summary, it was far and away the best game of the week, month of November and possibly this entire season.
Week 12 Points: 57.3
2022 Salary: $2,983,350
Cost per Point: $52,065
Congratulations to Josh on winning your first Dynasty Owner Player of the Week honor and in fairly dominant fashion. His cost per point of $52,065 was the best this season from a Player of the Week. He’s just the seventh RB to ever win Player of the Week to put the RB position into a tie with the WR position for second most players (clearly after QB since 19 different QBs have won it).
Dynasty Owner Value Player of the Week
Because this is Dynasty Owner and we’re all looking for value from the players on our roster, we also have the Value Player of the Week. The twelfth Dynasty Owner Value Player of the Week makes an appearance here for the second time. He’s the second player to win this award twice during the 2022 season. The winner is Amon-Ra St. Brown.
Amon-Ra St. Brown ($1,066,313) played in the first game on Thanksgiving and had to wait over 100 hours to finalize get his well-deserved second Value Player of the Week honor for the season. It was so long ago that you might have forgotten he scored 27.9 Dynasty Owner fantasy points this week (9 receptions, 122 receiving yards, 7 rushing yards, 1 TD). He held off a pair of Philadelphia Eagles in Miles Sanders and Jalen Hurts who had more Dynasty Owner fantasy points (33.0 for Sanders and 36.3 for Hurts), but not enough to overcome St. Brown’s lower salary. He also held off a pair of backup RBs who have salaries under $1 million in JaMycal Hasty ($895,000) and Ty Johnson ($672,976) who played a lot in Week 12 due to injuries.
He is the first player with a salary in excess of $1 million to win Value Player of the Year more than once. Both DK Metcalf ($1,146,513) and Dameon Pierce ($1,118,858) have won it, but St. Brown became the first $1 million player to do it twice. With two more years at his current salary and status as the Lions’ clear top WR, it’s not inconceivable that he could win more Value Player of the Week awards in the future.
Week 12 Points: 27.9
2022 Salary: $1,066,313
Cost per Point: $38,219
Congratulations Amon-Ra on the second Dynasty Owner Value Player of the Week honor of your career and this season. The only other WRs with more than one Value Player of the Week award are Chris Godwin ($20,000,000) and Marquez Valdes-Scantling ($10,000,000). Both of them have moved on to much higher salary contracts as Amon-Ra is likely to do after the 2024 season.
Now, we look at players who should have been one of your Starters based on their Week 12 performance. These are players who were more likely to be on your Bench or Practice Squad when they should have been in your Starting lineup.
QB: Mike White (NYJ – $2,540,000) – 34.9 points
It wasn’t his career best performance as he had 38.1 Dynasty Owner fantasy points in Week 8 last season. It also wasn’t the best performance by a Jets QB this season as Joe Flacco ($3,500,000) had 40.9 Dynasty Owner fantasy points back in Week 2. However, it was far and away better than any performance this year by former Jets starting QB Zach Wilson ($8,787,670), or in Wilson’s career for that matter.
White executed a solid first drive of 9 plays for 75 yards ending with a TD pass to Garrett Wilson ($5,138,502). He completed six out of seven passes for 69 yards on that drive and continued to play well all game. He finished with 34.9 Dynasty Owner fantasy points (315 passing yards, 2 rushing yards, 3 TDs) in his first playing time of the 2022 season. He was rostered in just over two-thirds (68.09%) of Dynasty Owner leagues at game time, 88.51% now. That percentage should approach 100% soon with his low salary and the likelihood that he’s the Jets starting QB for the rest of the season. He would have looked great in your Dynasty Owner Starting lineup this week as he was QB3 for the week, behind only Herbert and Hurts.
An honorable mention goes to Patriots QB Mac Jones ($3,896,588) who had 31.1 Dynasty Owner fantasy points (382 passing yards, 2 TDs, 1 fumble). He played so well that my friend and fellow Patriots fan Bob Siggins didn’t text once during the game to demand that Bailey Zappe ($1,076,768) be inserted at QB. That’s been happening multiple times per game since Jones returned from his ankle injury. Even though it was never going to happen, the texts kept coming. Thank you Mac Jones for playing so well and putting a stop to them this week. You deserve more but all I can offer is an honorable mention and say that you should have been in more Dynasty Owner Starting lineups.
RB: JaMycal Hasty (JAC – $895,000) – 20.5 points
There were several low-salary backup RBs who had to step in and play a lot in Week 12 for injured starters. The best of the bunch by a few Dynasty Owner fantasy points, not far and away but still a healthy amount, was Jaguars RB JaMycal Hasty. Hasty had 20.5 Dynasty Owner fantasy points (DOFPs) in relief of Travis Etienne ($3,224,526) who suffered a foot injury early in the Jaguars’ victory over the Ravens. Hasty did most of his damage in the passing game with 5 receptions for 67 yards and a TD. He also had 28 rushing yards on 12 attempts. The other RBs who deserve to be acknowledged for their performances in place of starters injured in Week 12 are:
Please note that neither Samaje Perine ($1,650,000) or Rachaad White ($1,282,500) as both of them were the starting RB for their team all game, unlike Hasty and the others listed.
WR: Isaiah McKenzie (BUF – $2,200,000) – 22.3 points
We can easily divide Isaiah McKenzie’s 2022 season into three separate parts for the first year starting WR. First, we have the four bad games in which he’s barely worth a Bench spot and usually has a reception or two, but not much else. In three games, he’s been average with between 9.0 and 10.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points and contributing in three ways, but on a small scale.
Finally, we have the part when he plays great. Since he’s appearing in this section, it’s obvious that this week was one of those games. He’s had three of them, including his 22.3 Dynasty Owner fantasy point performance on Thanksgiving when he is electric and contributes for the Bills as a receiver and either a runner or returner. He has three games with 10.0 or more Dynasty Owner fantasy points and in all those games, he has a TD, 4 or more receptions and some additional yardage rushing or returning. On Thanksgiving, he was the Bills’ leading receiver and had 6 receptions for 96 yards and a TD plus 2 rushing attempts for 7 yards. These weeks are the ones you want McKenzie in your Dynasty Owner Starting lineup, but figuring out when they are coming is the hard part.
TE: Josh Oliver (BAL – $1,062,711) – 17.6 points
This spot was definitely for Josh Oliver until Monday night when Jelani Woods ($1,343,118) almost caused me to split it. Oliver is the pick because he had more points than the other options, including Woods, and is rostered in the lowest percentage of leagues (1.7%). Oliver was a little bit, definitely not far and away, better than a few other TEs who unexpectedly caught a TD and had double-digit Dynasty Owner fantasy points. Oliver has to compete with Mark Andrews ($14,000,000) and rookie Isaiah Likely ($1,041,085) and had actually carved out a small niche with 18.4 Dynasty Owner fantasy points (7 receptions, 54 receiving yards, 1 TD) before exploding in Week 12 with 17.6 Dynasty Owner fantasy points (4 receptions, 76 receiving yards, 1 TD). Based on his low roster percentage, almost nobody saw this coming and had him in their Starting lineup.
Honorable mention to Indianapolis TE Jelani Woods who splits time with Mo Alie-Cox ($5,850,000) and Kylen Granson ($1,046,592). It’s pretty much anyone’s guess who will play and get receptions on a weekly basis. Believe me, I’ve tried and failed because it’s not easy. This week, Woods had his third game with over 10.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points. In those three games, he has scored 45.8 Dynasty Owner fantasy points, including 16.8 (8 receptions, 98 receiving yards, 1 fumble). In the other seven games, he has a total of only 6.9 Dynasty Owner fantasy points and four games with the dreaded Blutarsky (0.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points). He should have been in your Starting lineup if you dared to try and if to play him.
K: Matthew Wright (PIT – $895,000) – 12.0 points
Wright has bounced around the NFL a bit this year. He was released by Jacksonville during the off-season, signed by Kansas City to the practice squad and then ended up kicking for two games in place of an injured Harrison Butker ($4,055,000). Pittsburgh signed him off the Kansas City practice squad for their active roster to replace Chris Boswell ($4,201,500) for their Week 10 game versus New Orleans. He may not be better, but he is far and away much cheaper than Butker and Boswell.
He has kicked well the past two weeks with 11.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points last week and 12.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points in Week 12. He made all six of his kicks last week, but only needed four kicks (3 FGs and a PAT) to get more points this week. That’s because he had two long FGs (45 and 52 yards) worth a total of 9.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points and a 25-yarder worth 2.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points plus the one PAT worth 1.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy point. That equals 12.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points, so he was worth a spot in your Dynasty Owner Starting lineup.
Players Who Should Have Been on the Bench or Practice Squad
For every player who should have been in your Starting lineup but wasn’t, we have at least one highly drafted or ranked player who probably was in your Starting lineup, but scored few, or no Dynasty Owner fantasy points in Week 12. All of them should have been riding your Bench or hanging out on the Practice Squad.
QB: No one
This is completely unprecedented. Out of the top 15 QB, none really had a bad game and wasn’t worth being in your Starting lineup. Of course, some QBs had more points than others and weren’t in the top 12 QBs for the week, but I’m having a hard time putting someone here who scored more than 20.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points. Here are the only candidates:
- Justin Fields ($4,717,989) didn’t play.
- The current top 12 QB with the fewest Dynasty Owner fantasy points was Tua Tagovailoa ($7,568,859) who had 20.9 Dynasty Owner fantasy points, mainly because he was pulled out of the Dolphins’ game early in the second half.
- Aaron Rodgers ($33,500,000) did have only 12.9 Dynasty Owner fantasy points got injured and replaced by Jordan Love ($3,095,863). However, Rodgers is QB15 and shouldn’t really be in your Starting lineup.
- Daniel Jones ($6,416,014) is QB16 and “only” scored 17.8 Dynasty Owner fantasy points. He was a mid-range Bench option, which is exactly where he should be.
I can’t put any of those QBs here and the rest scored more than 20.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points. Not fair to label any of them as Bench QBs this week, so I won’t.
RB: Dameon Pierce (HOU – $1,118,858) – 4.6 points
This was his second bad game in a row after he scored 3.7 Dynasty Owner fantasy points in Week 11. Last week, he tied his career low with 12 touches and this week, he had only eight as the Texans got down 30-0 to the Dolphins by halftime. Pierce only had 4.6 Dynasty Owner fantasy points (8 rushing yards, 3 receptions, 8 receiving yards). These past two weeks have by far and away been the worst two weeks in a row in his rookie season as he has failed to crack 10 yards either rushing or receiving either week. At least in Week 1 when he had just 4.9 Dynasty Owner fantasy points, he had 33 rushing yards on 11 carries. In the past two weeks, it’s been 8 rushing yards on 10 carries versus Washington and then 8 rushing yards on 5 carries against Miami. The highly touted rookie is down to RB18 in Dynasty Owner and wasn’t worth a Starting lineup spot in Week 12.
WR: Curtis Samuel (WAS – $11,500,000) – 1.3 points
Usually when a WR has no targets on offense, he gets no points, but Commanders Curtis Samuel had 4 rushing attempts for 13 yards, so he scored 1.3 Dynasty Owner fantasy points in Week 12. It was the first time this season that he has been held without a reception, so he had his lowest output of Dynasty Owner fantasy points for the season. It wasn’t far and away his worst performance of the season as he did have just 2.6 Dynasty Owner fantasy points in Week 6 versus Chicago. Even with this poor performance, Samuel is still WR24 for the season. He has played one more game than most WRs so he’s likely to slip out of the top 24 if he doesn’t have a solid Week 13. Still, he was likely in many Starting lineups in Week 12 when he should have been on the Bench.
TE: Tyler Higbee (LAR – $7,250,000) and Juwan Johnson (NO – $895,000) – 0.0 points
It’s weeks like this that makes it clear the TE hierarchy in the NFL and Dynasty Owner. At the top we have Travis Kelce ($14,312,500) who is far and away the top TE with 241.7 Dynasty Owner fantasy points. The next grouping has Mark Andrews ($14,000,000) almost 100 points behind with 143.8 Dynasty Owner fantasy points and T.J. Hockenson ($4,955,306) with 136.7 Dynasty Owner fantasy points. Both Zach Ertz ($10,550,000) and Dallas Goedert ($14,250,000) would be with Andrews and Hockenson if they hadn’t missed the last two games with injuries. It’s pretty much a group of ten similar TEs after that, separated by less than 15.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points, and where it gets difficult to trust someone to be in your Starting lineup every week.
Both of the TEs who had a Blutarsky (0.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points) are in this group. Higbee has five games with double-digit Dynasty Owner fantasy points and Johnson has four games. Those are the games that you want them in your Starting lineup. Both of them also had a Blutarsky one other time this season. It was Week 3 versus Carolina for Johnson and Week 9 versus Tampa Bay for Higbee. Just like this week, those are the games you want them on your Practice Squad, not even your Bench. Welcome to the life of a Dynasty Owner without a top TE option in 2022.
K: Brett Maher (DAL – $965,000) – 2.0 points
Brett Maher had far and away the biggest swing in Dynasty Owner fantasy points among kickers over the past two weeks. Last week, he had 21.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points and was tied with Tyler Bass ($869,804) as the top kicker with 89.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points for the season. In Week 12, he only had 2.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points on Thanksgiving as he made 4 PATs, but missed his only FG attempt from 46 yards away. That dropped him down to the fourth highest scoring kicker for the 2022 season. It’s surprising that his Dynasty Owners should have put him on their Bench after such a high-scoring game the prior week.
Maher wasn’t the worst kicker in Week 12 as Brandon McManus ($4,300,000) of the Broncos had only 1.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy point. However, being the kicker for a terrible offense like the Broncos has put McManus well outside for the season with just 61.0 Dynasty Owner fantasy points. He has only attempted 13 PATs compared to twice as many FG attempts (26) and should probably not be in your Starting lineup until Denver’s offense moves the ball better.
Dynasty Owner Match-up of the Week Recap
The Oracle 🙌 vs. Space Cowboys – League # 111014
In this week’s Match-up of the Week, an “unlucky” team had a second chance to defeat a team in the top 100 of the Chase for the Ring. A win would keep The Oracle 🙌 in the playoff hunt and while a loss would not knock them out, but it would make it much more difficult for them to reach the playoffs. Let’s see what happened.
As usual for this team, The Oracle 🙌 scored a lot of points, but was “unlucky” in their match-up and lost to the Space Cowboys by a score of 189.1 to 163.88. Space Cowboys were the highest scoring team in League #111014 and hopefully they put that additional $2 million Dynasty Dollars for being the top scorer to good use. They might need it as they are still in third place at 9-3 behind Jersey strong and Phantom power who both have 10-2 records. Space Cowboys are also far and away the top scoring team in the league with 1,863.6 points. They face Jersey strong in Week 13 and could move into the top two and be in position for a playoff bye with a victory. It shows how important winning your weekly match-up is as Space Cowboys are in 46th place in the Chase for the Ring and moving up, but still need more victories to avoid a first round playoff match-up.
The Oracle 🙌 is second in the league with 1,711.1 points, but with a 5-7 record. That put them in seventh place and out of the playoffs if they started this week. They still have two more games to go, and the sixth place team (Usual Suspects) is 6-6. The Oracle 🙌 has a schedule that is favorable as they play two teams below them in the standings in the final two games. However, with how “unlucky” they have been this season, who knows what might happen.
Space Cowboys had the Player of the Week (Josh Jacobs) and his 57.3 Dynasty Owner fantasy points as their Starting FLEX player. He was assisted by double-digit Dynasty Owner fantasy points from every other player in their Starting lineup, except TE Mike Gesicki ($10,931,000) who had a Blutarsky. They left a few points on the Bench as Justin Herbert was their Bench QB and he scored 37.5 Dynasty Owner fantasy points. Their Starting QB was Tua Tagovailoa who had a good game with 20.9 Dynasty Owner fantasy points. However, Herbert was far and away a better player to have in their Starting lineup. Fortunately, it only hurt their Chase for the Ring standings position, not their weekly match-up.
Of course, The Oracle 🙌 was “unlucky” and played the team with Jacobs. They had a solid performance from their entire Starting lineup, led by Patrick Mahomes ($45,000,000) with 23.6 Dynasty Owner fantasy points and Rhamondre Stevenson ($1,057,264) with 20.2 Dynasty Owner fantasy points. They did have two players on their Bench who scored more than a pair in their Starting lineup. However, just switching Miles Sanders in place of Jonathan Taylor ($1,957,287) at RB and Christian Watson ($2,310,258) in place of A.J. Brown ($1,413,092) at WR would have only yielded an extra 17.7 points and left them 7.52 points shy of a victory. Even without those changes, The Oracle 🙌 moved up quite a bit in the Chase for the Ring standings and is now in 235th place.
If you have a Week 13 match-up that is shaping up to be a good one, then let me know on Twitter (@SteveVT33). A match-up or two between teams battling for a playoff spot or a first round playoff bye preferred as those should be the focus of the next couple of weeks. Your team doesn’t need to be Chase for the Ring contender for me to use your Match-up. A few people submitted match-ups last week and it would be nice to have multiple ones to choose from again this week.
Chase for the Ring Leaderboard
As mentioned earlier, Space Cowboys moved up to 46th place in the Chase for the Ring standings. Not enough to make it on to the Top 10 Leaderboard, but they did move up 28 places. Let’s find out if anyone scored enough points to move up into the top 10. Those teams are far and away the best ones in Dynasty Owner right now, but it doesn’t mean they will be at the end of the season. They still need to win their League to make it to the final Leaderboard after Week 17.
It’s the same ten teams, just in a different order this week. Except Crangis McBasketball who has held on to 10th place for the third week in a row. It was only by 0.3 points over the Clara Strong 💪 team in League #34662 so it’ll be interesting to see if they hang on for another week, move up, or move out of the top 10.
Blaze’s Backyard Burners stayed on top for a second consecutive week, but their lead shrunk from 24.9 points to only 8.8 points. The second place team is now juan blanco who moved ahead of Dynasty|Trade|School (D|T|S). They trailed Dynasty|Trade|School (D|T|S) by 17.9 points last week and are now in front of them by 25.2 points. The gap between juan blanco and Blaze’s Backyard Burners was reduced from 42.8 points to only 8.8 points in just one week.
Stayner and The Oracle 🙌 flipped spots with Stayner now in fourth place and The Oracle 🙌 in fifth place. The Oracle 🙌 had steadily climbed the standings for several weeks before moving back down a spot. The same thing happened for the two Clara Strong 💪 teams. The one in League #28280 is now in sixth place, having swapped places with the one in League #27448 that is now in seventh place. The Road Warriors are up another spot and sit in eighth place, while Thee Camel Toe Jockey dropped another spot into ninth place. It’s the fourth straight week that The Road Warriors have moved up the leaderboard, at the same time as Thee Camel Toe Jockey has moved down.
The Chase for the Ring is close as the top five teams are separated by 80.3 points, while the tenth place team is only 80.1 points out of fifth place. The playoffs will start to cause teams to drop out so enjoy this lack of movement on the leaderboard while it lasts.
Josh Jacobs may have had the most dominant week in Dynasty Owner. He was definitely far and away better than everyone else and our Player of the Week. The top QBs all played like top QBs and showed why they are far and away better than some of the new signal callers for some struggling teams (with the exception of Mike White for the Jets).
Our Match-up of the Week loser is probably far and away the leader in the competition for the “unluckiest” team this year. That’s hard to determine statistically, but it’s hard to imagine another team with a losing record that is only about 100 points out of the top 100 in the Chase.
While this Week 12 recap article is late, the rest of them so far this week after Thanksgiving have been on time and should continue to do so for the rest of the week. The Free Agent Auction targets from Jay Pounds came out early on Tuesday afternoon. The last installment in the Opportunity Is (Almost) Everything series by Matt Morrison – The Jerk will look at TEs and appear on Wednesday. It’s back to only one Thursday Night Football game and Matt will preview that for everyone on Thursday. My Week 13 preview article will appear on Thursday as well and the Week 13 recommendations go back to their usual Friday spot.
Everyone can listen to the Dynasty Owner podcast with me and Jay that is scheduled to be posted on Friday AM. We did take the week of Thanksgiving off, while the Dynasty Owner Livestream did not. The Livestream is back this week on Wednesday at 12:30 PM (Eastern). Tim and I will answer trade and other questions and talk about Dynasty Owner and fantasy football in general. You can also catch it afterwards on the Dynasty Owner YouTube channel if you can’t watch us live. Finally, don’t forget to follow Dynasty Owner on Twitter as well. Thanks, and have a great day!
