2021 Dynasty/Fantasy Game Analysis Week 13: Dolphins 20, Giants 9


This game was only 10-6 Miami after three quarters, but the Giants inability to create any offense to support their very good defense stayed true all game and finally smothered them out in the end. Both teams played their game…plodding offenses and good defense, but Miami’s offense is actually sparking right now so they took the game.

Miami has won five in a row and are pressuring my in the bag ‘under’ 9 wins bet on them from the preseason. The Dolphins are (6-7), but likely to finish (8-9), but it’s not a done deal yet. Miami is hot right now, but they are beating a bunch of garbage offenses/teams right now.

The Giants lose another winnable game to fall to (4-8). Too many injuries. Too crappy a QB play. They have no identity or spark on offense. NYG might get to 5-6 wins unless they want to quasi tank and stick with 4 wins. They own the Bears pick, so two top 10 draft picks coming for NYG next year….they can send them to Seattle for Russell Wilson.



Fantasy Player Notes…


 -- Tua Tagovailoa (30-41 for 244 yards, 2 TDs/0 INT)…Tua is now 84-of-105 (81.0%) passing in his last 3 games. He’s on fire. The BTO (Baby Throw Offense) is working at a high level and defenses have no answer.

Nothing different happened in this game than their last several during this win streak…everything to Jaylen Waddle (9-90-0/11) and competent everything else.

DeVante Parker (5-62-0/5) returned to action. He doesn’t look special, just Tua is dealing, and Parker is a good option. Waddle still rules all the primary targets.


 -- Mike Gesicki (7-46-0/11) had a bigger game here, for targets…sometimes he is virtually unstoppable but he’s not getting the TD shots he used to. And his target counts have been erratic the last month or so. He’s still a TE1 threat every week, but no TDs is holding him back from TE1 scoring usually.


 -- I thought Mike Glennon (23-44 for 187 yards, 0 TDs/1 INT) looked fine enough. He just suffered a bunch of drops, and he’s so slow afoot that any time pressure leaked through Glennon can’t slide away from it…he moves like a piano being pushed uphill but isn’t even on wheels. Despite that, with some time to set up in the pocket, Glennon was OK…his weapons are disinterested letdowns.

Glennon suffered a concussion, despite finishing the game. If he can’t go Week 14, recently grabbed off Buffalo’s Practice Squad QB Jake Fromm will be forced to start (assuming Dan Dimes is out again)…and if Fromm happens, then everything related is in trouble for NYG.


 -- I thought the receiver Glennon had the most connection with was Evan Engram (4-61-0/5)…and EE looked the best he has all year here. If Glennon is back for the LAC game Week 14, I think Engram could be a possible TE1 threat. With Jake Fromm…it’s trouble.

Kenny Golladay (3-37-0/5) had an encouraging start to this game but then fizzled out and got nicked up again.

I wish Kadarius Toney could get back in for some life to this offense, but he’s likely out again Week 14. Week 15 he might be back.


 -- The most exciting thing about this game was the young IDPs emerging…



Andrew Van Ginkel (5 tackles, 1 TFL) and Jaelen Phillips (5 tackles, 2 sacks) are on fire. Since Week 8, the two have combined for 29 QB hits. The New York Giants have 50 QB hits on the entire season.

Miami-DST v. NYJ Week 15 should be good, but Zach Wilson is starting to perk up. Week 16 at NO might be OK, depending upon Taysom’s hand. I don’t know if it is more schedule driven or not (my lean is that it is schedule), but the Miami-DST is definitely a hot play the past several weeks.



Quincy Roche (6 tackles, 1 sack) keeps making plays and standing out with pressure – he was cut by the Steelers in the preseason, another genius move by PIT.

Rookie pass rusher Azeez Ojulari (4 tackles, 1 sack) got his 6.5 sack on the season.

But the best thing for NYG, my guy, rookie CB Aaron Robinson (7 tackles, 1 PD) is recovered from injury, finally with the team and playing great football. He’s one of the best instinctual cover corner I’ve scouted, and he’s been an instant success in the pros in just a few weeks of play.

The future for the NYG-DST is bright if they can get any offense to help them.
