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.
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.
49ers running back Frank Gore turned back the clock with 95 yards on 19 carries. He showed what can happen if you give him the ball but should still be a non-factor in dynasty leagues next year.
Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham continues to impress with six catches for 93 yards. The only downside is he was targeted 13 times, converting less than half. But as long as keeps getting the reps, Beckham is a possible WR2 every week.
Giants receiver Rueben Randle had a game-high seven catches for 112 yards on 15 targets. It was a nice game but we expect Randle to be the odd man out in New York next year.
49ers linebacker Chris Borland continues to impress with 13 tackles, 3 passes defended and two interceptions. He’s playing like a LB1 and should have a place in the lineup next year.
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a very business-like day with 240 passing yards plus two touchdowns with no interceptions. This appears to be the norm for Tannehill which puts him in the QB2 tier but nothing more.
Bills running back Bryce Brown had a decent day as the passing back with 14 yards rushing to go along with seven catches and 57 yards. Brown is widely expected to have a bigger role in Buffalo next year so this is a good start.
Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry had quietly had one of the better rookie receiver seasons and added five catches for 46 yards and a touchdown He’s been a solid WR3 in PPR leagues.
Bills defensive end Mario Williams had 3.5 sacks to bring his total to 10 for the year. He’s a solid DL2 even in dynasty leagues.
49ers receiver Anquan Boldin had a good day with 93 yards on six catches and a touchdown. Boldin continues to be the top target in San Francisco and should be considered a WR3 in dynasty formats.
Rams defensive end Robert Quinn had another big day with two more sacks and has five in three games. He’s back to DL1 status.
49ers linebacker Chris Borland, filling in for Patrick Willis, had a game-high 18 tackles. He should be picked up as a dynasty LB in the event of another injury.
49ers safety Antoine Bethea continues to put up DB1 numbers with six tackles, two passes defended and an interception. He’s a good player on a good defense and should continue to be a DB1 in all formats.
