Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Redskins 24, Rams 10

Redskins

  • It was a coming out party for rookie running back Matt Jones with 123 yards on 19 carries and two touchdowns plus three catches for 23 yards. Good luck keeping him on taxi squads this year as Jones appears to be the clear heir apparent to Alfred Morris next year
  • Tight end Jordan Reed had another solid outing with six catches for 82 yards on six targets. If Reed is healthy, he’ll continue to be a big part of the offense this year and beyond.

Rams

  • It was Tre Mason’s turn as the running back of choice in St. Louis but didn’t do much to impress with only 26 yards on seven carries. For the Rams, they can’t wait for first round pick Todd Gurley to show up here he will be instantly put in the lineup.
  • On the defensive side, linebacker Alec Ogletree racked up 16 tackles. He continues to make big plays and is an ideal LB2 in IDP dynasty leagues.

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 14 – Cardinals take down Rams, 30-10

  • Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer was highly efficient, going 27 of 32 for 269 yards and a touchdown. The Cardinals have been good this season and Palmer should continue to be hot at times in 2014. He’s still older and slow but could be serviceable for a year or two.
  • Cardinals rookie running back Andre Ellington outplayed, again, Rashard Mendenhall, running for 46 yards on 11 carries. He’ll continue to be second fiddle to Mendenhall but that should change next year.
  • Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald hauled in all 12 of his targets for 96 yards and a touchdown. As long as the Cardinals are winning, Fitzgerald should be happy and continue to produce.
  • Rams rookie linebacker Alec Ogletree continues to play well with nine tackles and the first sack of his career. He’s up to 94 tackles on the year and has played as well as any rookie linebacker this side of Kiko Alonso. He’s the next possible Lavonte David.

Dynasty Fantasy Football – Week 12 – Rams beat up on Bears,

  • Bears running back Matt Forte had another good outing with 77 yards rushing and seven catches for 40 yards. He also escaped what looked like could be a serious injury.
  • The Rams running attacked looked impressive as well. Rookie Zac Stacy ran well again, taking 12 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown. After getting concussed, Benny Cunningham tacked on 109 yards on 13 carries and a touchdown. You’re looking at the Rams running back rotation for 2014.
  • Bears receiver Brandon Marshall had a great day with 10 catches for 117 yards and a touchdown. Marshall is closing in on another 1,000 yard, 10 touchdown campaign.
  • Rams rookie linebacker Alec Ogletree had a team-high 11 tackles with a pass defended. It was a nice bounce back game for Ogletree whose production tapered off in recent weeks.
  • Rams defensive lineman Robert Quinn was a force with four tackles, a sack, a pass defended and a forced fumble then recovery then touchdown. Quinn is a legit DL1 in all formats.
