Sell Freeman and Brady in Dynasty

The 2015 NFL season is in the books. That means dynasty leaguers have a whole season’s worth of information and data to sift through during the offseason, with an eye toward next year’s roster.

While I usually evaluate the overpriced or undervalued, let’s look at this season’s top performers at each major offensive position to see where they fall on either side of the stock watch. Specifically, let’s look at whether they’re expected to repeat their top performances next year or beyond.



Devonta Freeman – RB – Atlanta Falcons – Freeman was the bargain bin MVP in any fantasy format this year. The starting running back job in Atlanta was anything but decided heading into the season, after Steven Jackson’s departure and the team’s drafting of Tevin Coleman in the third round. But Freeman won the day and fantasy leagues. He ran for 1,061 yards, 11 touchdowns, and perhaps more impressive, he caught 73 passes for 578 yards and three more touchdowns.

    A little confused here. Why list Gronk and not Brady, other than age? It’s like a chicken or the egg scenario. If you’re predicting that Gronk will continue his dominance, then someone has to throw the ball to him. Yes, while there may be other QB1’s that Brady hasn’t separated himself from, the other QB1s don’t have an elite offensive weapon like Gronk but more talent spread around (like Palmer and Big Ben). So what I’m saying is that if you’re betting on Gronk to succeed then Brady is as sure a bet there is to continue his success as a result. To reiterate, if age isn’t a factor then Brady will continue to put up numbers if Gronk is in the lineup and vice versa. While Garrapolo is good, he’s no Brady yet and Gronk’s numbers will be hamstrung without Brady.
