Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Chiefs upend Seahawks, 24-20

  • Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles had a big day with 159 yards rushing and two touchdowns to go along with two catches for 19 yards. He’s easily surpassed LeSean McCoy as the top running back in dynasty.
  • Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had a decent day passing with 178 yards passing with two touchdowns plus 71 yards rushing. Wilson continues to be a low-end QB1 with all the rushing opportunities.
  • Seahawks safety Earl Thomas had a good day with 11 tackles and a pass defended. He’s had a down year, as have the entire Seattle defense, but today was a DB1 day.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Falcons escape Panthers, 19-17

  • Panthers receiver Kelvin  Benjamin had another big game with nine catches for 109 yards and a touchdown and should be a WR1 in dynasty going forward.
  • Falcons receiver Roddy White continues to put off age with eight catches for 75 yards and a touchdown. White is still a solid WR3 option in dynasty despite his age.
  • Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly had another big day with 11 tackles and two passes defended. Even in a lost season, Kuechly continues to be the top LB in dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Bengals beat Saints, 27-10

  • Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had a good game with 220 yards and three touchdowns. Dalton has his share of critics but should top out as a low-end QB1 going forward.
  • Rookie running back Jeremy Hill had a big game with 152 yards on just 27 carries. It was a RB1 game but his value will suffer when Gio Bernard comes back.
  • Bengals receiver A.J. Green had a comeback game with six catches for 127 yards and a touchdown. It’s been an inconsistent season for Green but we have doubts about him staying an elite option.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Buccaneers beat down Redskins, 27-7

  • Bucs quarterback Josh McCown had a good day with 288 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions. It’s a lost season for Tampa so we don’t expect McCown to have any value beyond this year.
  • Redskins running back Alfred Morris had another good day with 96 yards rushing to go along with two catches and 36 yards receiving, Morris had toughed out a bad start and regained some of his value.
  • Bucs rookie receiver Mike Evans had a huge day with 209 yards on seven catches and two touchdowns. He could flirt with WR1 status the rest of the way.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Rams upset Broncos 22-7

  • Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had a disappointing day with 373 yards and one touchdown along with two interceptions. This day was an anomaly as Manning should still be considered an elite option.
  • Rams rookie running back Tre Mason had an ok day with 29 carries and 113 yards but a sub-4.0 YPC. It was a Zac Stacy-like day and Mason should be careful.
  • Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas had another 100-yard game with seven catches for 103 yards. Thomas is at the top of the receiver class as long as Peyton is in town.
  • Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree had a big day with 13 tackles, two passes defended and an interception. Ogletree is more valuable in big play IDP leagues where he should be considered a LB2.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Bears beat Vikings, 21-13

  • Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had a big day with 330 passing yards and three touchdowns and two interceptions. Cutler is maddeningly inconsistent but should average out to a low-end QB1 in dynasty formats.
  • Bears running back Matt Forte had another big day with 117 yards rushing plus six catches for 58 yards. He’s a legit RB1 but his age is a factor in dynasty leagues. Be warned.
  • Vikings receiver Charles Johnson finally broke out with six catches for 87 yards.  He’s a physical freak who could see more time down the stretch if the Viking are out of it.
  • Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery finally broke out with 11 catches for 135 yards and a touchdown. HE should still be considered a WR1 in dynasty albeit on the low-end of the tier.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Texans surprise Browns, 23-7

  • Texans running back Alfred Blue performed admirably in place of Arian Foster with 156 yards on the ground. He won’t overtake Foster as long as they’re on the same team but should be owned in all dynasty leagues.
  • Browns running back Isaiah Crowell got the majority of carries and ended up with 61 yards on the ground plus two catches for 30 yards. He undoubtedly has the most upside of any of the Browns running backs and, hopefully, will continue to start.
  • Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins led the team again with 80 yards receiving, continues a season that’s been better than Andre Johnson. Hopkins appears to have overtaken Johnson in Houston.
  • Texans defensive end J.J. Watt had another sack with five tackles and a receiving touchdown. He’s the top DL in dynasty and fantasy league and it’s not even close.
