During the dog days of summer, keeping up with the latest dynasty football information can be a challenge with vacations, less reporting going on during the early summer and very little blockbuster news. In case you’ve been on vacation or have not had time to check in with the latest dynasty football impact news, we’re here to help. Here are some headlines from this week and what they mean for dynasty owners:
Rolando McClain Suspended 10-games
Literally almost one-third of Dallas’ defense is suspended to start the year, it’s almost comical, if it wasn’t so sad. McClain will likely cede the middle to Anthony Hitchens and if so his stock rises for the upcoming season. It’s tough to see McClain’s dynasty relevance with as much trouble and as much time he will miss.
Johnny Manziel suspended 4-games
Johnny football should simply be dropped in all formats. It’s sad to see a person in a drug induced tailspin play it out in the public eye. Manziel has no dynasty relevance due to his own actions, let’s hope he finds the help he needs, sooner rather than later.
Bengals may use more two-back formations
This is an indication, and only an indication, that Gio Bernard could be on the field much more than he was last season. When you combine that with the three year contract extension he signed this offseason, Gio’s dynasty stock is clearly pointing up.
Andrew Luck made highest paid player in NFL history
To the surprise of nobody. The dynasty impact here is that he’s under contract until his 32nd birthday, which provides stability to this offense. Despite an injury-laden year this year, Luck is expected to bounce back strong and continue his fantasy dominance.
