Dynasty Recap – Week 3 – Bears dominate Steelers, 40-23

  • Statistically, the Steelers had a big night led by Antonio Brown’s  196 yards on nine receptions. Brown is, and will be, the best option Pittsburgh has in the passing game so he’ll continue to see looks. Ideally, another receiver could take the pressure off.
  • On the Bears side, receiver Alshon Jeffery got just as many looks as Brandon Marshall, further proof that Jay Cutler is trying to spread the wealth. Chicago ran a balanced attack so every look Jeffery can get as the second receiver the better. He’s young and in a good offense but is blocked behind Brandon Marshall for attention. Don’t expect that to change much.
  • Bears running back Matt Forte continues to be one of the most reliable backs around. Rushing for 87 yards on only 16 carries and catching four more balls, there’s not many other running backs who is as productive, even with Michael Bush taking goal-line touches away. Forte should be a low-end RB1 for 2-4 more years in dynasty leagues.
  • Late breaking news says Le’Veon Bell should make his debut in week four. I’m sure the Steelers would love to hit the reset button about now. He’ll be better than anything else they’ve tried even if he’s at below 100%
