Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Rams escape 49ers, 13-10

  • 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.

Dynasty Impact – San Francisco 49ers select Jimmie Ward, S

wardDynasty Impact: Ward is a well-rounded safety that can help against the run and pass. Has great hands that could rack up interceptions in IDP leagues. Undersized but has a great motor. However, there’s no place for him now with Antoine Bethea and Eric Reid manning both safety positions. Won’t have much of an IDP effect his first year.

Dynasty Recap – Week 14 – Bengals survive Colts, 42-28

  • Colts quarterback Andrew Luck looked like the dynasty franchise quarterback we all expected him to be, going 29 of 46 for 326 yards for a 7.1 YPA and four touchdowns with zero turnovers. Let’s hope this kind of play continues.
  • Bengals running back Giovani Bernard had another solid outing with 99 yards rushing on just 12 attempts, for an 8.3 YPC, to go along with four catches for 49 yards. Bernard is only scratching the surface of his production and with BenJarvus Green-Ellis only under contract for one more year at most, he should be even better next year.
  • Colts rookie receiver Da’Rick Rogers went off for six catches, gaining 107 yards and two touchdowns. Only playing due to injuries on the team, Rogers made the most of it and lived up to the pre-season hype he had in Buffalo…at least for today. It’ll be interesting to see if his quarterback keeps looking his way down the stretch.
  • Colts safety Antoine Bethea had a team-high 17 tackles. It’s his first double-digit tackle game since week one of a disappointing season. Bethea will be 30 heading in to next season and is surely on the decline of his career with his tackle numbers and passes defended numbers going down again. Avoid in dynasty leagues.
