Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Saints 31, Falcons 21

Saints

  • It was a throwback game for Drew Brees as he throws for 312 yards on 30 of 39 passing and a touchdown. It’s a rare good week for Brees but we still consider him a fringe-level QB1 in dynasty formats.
  • Saints rookie receiver Willie Snead had another solid game with four catches for 55 yards. He’s averaging over 70 yards a game through his first six games and could be a long-term replacement for Marques Colton.
  • Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe had a big day with 14 tackles. He can be one of the few player makers on an otherwise weak Saints defense and could carry LB2 value in dynasty leagues.

Falcons

  • Matt Ryan had another good day with 295 yards and two touchdowns. He’s squarely in the mid-QB1 conversation in dynasty.
  • Devonta Freeman had another good day with 100 yards and a touchdown on just 13 carries. He also added eight catches for 56 yards and a touchdown. We don’t see Freeman being a three-down back going forward but should firmly stay as the receiving back which has plenty of value in PPR leagues.
  • Defensive end Adrian Clayborn had a sack and has two on the season. The 27-year old could be a decent DL3 option in dynasty as part of a weak Falcons defense.

Dynasty Recap – Week 17 – Saints destroy Buccaneers, 42-17

  • Saints quarterback Drew Brees had an indoor Brees day, going 24 of 31 for 381 yards and four touchdowns. Brees will continue to be a top three dynasty quarterback in 2014.
  • Saints running back Khiry Robinson ran for 50 yards on a season-high 12 carries. Robinson is an intriguing dynasty prospect especially if Mark Ingram doesn’t return.
  • Buccaneers rookie tight end Tim Wright ended 2013 with five catches for 58 yards and a touchdown. Wright has some upside heading in to 2014 after coming out of nowhere to be a reliable option for rookie Mike Glennon.
  • Buccaneers defensive end Adrian Clayborn had an impressive 10 tackles to go along with another sack. Clayborn will be just 26 heading in to 2014 and should be a decent DL2.
