- Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had a quiet day by his standards with 253 yards passing and a touchdown. He’ll bounce back soon.
- Colts running back Daniel Herron had a good day in his first start of the season with 65 yards rushing plus five catches for 31 yards. Herron could have some dynasty value as Ahmad Bradshaw probably won’t be there next year.
- Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton had a big day with 122 yards on four catches and one touchdown. Even on a bad day by Luck, Hilton still produced a WR1 day.
- Jaguars rookie linebacker Telvin Smith had his best game of the season with 13 tackles on the day. Smith came in to the season with a lot of promise and could get more playing time as the seasons wears on. Numbers like this make him a solid LB2/3.

Dynasty Recap – Week 12 – Bengals beat Texans, 22-13
- Bengals running back Jeremy Hill continues to run well with 87 yards on just 18 carries. There’s no doubt he’s the best runner on the team even if Gio can still be the top receiving back.
- Bengals receiver A.J. Green had another big day with 12 catches for 121 yards on 16 targets. He should continue to regain his status as a top-tier WR.
- Texans lineman J.J. Watt had another great game, especially for a DL, with seven tackles and a pass defended. Even if he doesn’t tally a sack, he’s still a force.
Dynasty Recap – Week 12 – Bears upend Bucs, 21-13
- Bucs quarterback continues to sling it around with 341 yards passing with one touchdown and two interceptions. He could be a decent streamer play but shouldn’t be counted on in dynasty.
- Bears running back Matt Forte continues to put in an MVP season in fantasy circles with 89 yards rushing with two touchdowns to go along with five catches for 23 yards. He should challenge Charles for top running back in dynasty.
- Bucs receiver Vincent Jackson had a good day with five catches for 117 yards. However, rookie Mike Evans is already the top target in Tampa so don’t go crazy.
- Bucs linebacker Mason Foster was all over the field with eight tackles and a pass defended, his third on the season. Foster played like a solid LB2 today but his future in Tampa is dicey making his dynasty prospects bleak.
Dynasty Recap – Week 12 – Raiders upset Chiefs 24-20
- Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith had another decent day with 234 yards passing and two touchdowns. That’s about the ceiling for Alex Smith going forward.
- Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles had a big day as he’s prone to do. He reeled off 80 yards rushing plus four catches for 42 yards and a touchdown. He should continue to be dynasties top running back.
- On the other side of the field, Raiders running back Latavius Murray broke out with 112 rushing yards on just four carries with two touchdowns.
- Raiders linebacker Sio Moore had a big day with 12 tackles and a sack and continues to have a good season. He should be part of a good, young defense in Oakland as a LB2/3.
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.
