Dynasty Quarterback Rankings – December

Click here for updated quarterback rankings for December. 

  • Few changes at the top except Robert Griffin III and Matt Stafford flipping five and six; Russell Wilson and Matt Ryan swapping seven and eight; and Peyton Manning and Colin Kaepernick switching nine and ten.
  • Notable drops include Jay Cutler going from 13 to 16 with uncertainty around where he’ll play next along with his surprisingly full injury history. Also Sam Bradford from 17 to 21 after his torn ACL and some uncertainty on what St. Louis will do with their #2 pick.
  • Big risers include Ben Roethlisberger from 20 to 17 after his highly productive month; Nick Foles made the biggest jump from 30 to 21 thanks to his All-Pro season. His ranking is sure to rise in 2014.

Dynasty Recap – Week 14 – Dolphins edge Steelers, 34-28

  • Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger continues his late season surge, going 23 of 39 for 349 yards and three touchdowns with one fumble lost. He’ll be just 32 entering 2014 and Pittsburgh has the makings of a good, young offense around him.
  • Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas went off for 105 yards on 16 carries and a touchdown in place of Lamar Miller. Don’t expect many more days like this from Thomas.
  • On the other side of the field, Steelers rookie running back Le’Veon Bell performed well in the running game with 61 yards on 15 carries. He was even more impressive in the passing game with nine targets, hauling in five catches for 28 yards. Bell is proving he can be an every down back and will be viewed as such heading in to 2014.
  • Dolphins tight end Charles Clay led the Dolphins with 10 targets, seven catches and 97 yards and two touchdowns. He continues to have an impressive season in place of the injured Dustin Keller. It’s hard to imagine Clay’s role being diminished heading in to 2014.
  • Steelers linebacker Jason Worilds had another good game with eight tackles and two more sacks. He now has 31 tackles and five sacks in the last four games. Worilds will be a free agent in 2014 but should find a starting job somewhere.

Dynasty Recap – Week 13 Recap – Ravens escape Steelers, 22-20

  • Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had another solid outing, going 28 of 44 for 257 yards and two touchdowns and no turnovers. As long as the offense is healthy and firing on all cylinders, Roethlisberger will be a solid QB2 option. He also has yet to utilize rookie receiver Markus Wheaton yet which will only help his 2014 prospects.
  • Steelers rookie running back Le’Veon Bell had solid game as well with 73 yards rushing and a touchdown to go with seven catches for 63 yards. More games like this is why Bell was widely considered the top rookie prospect heading in to this dynasty season.
  • Steelers tight end Heath Miller led all Steelers with eight catches and 86 yards. It’s not a secret that Roethlisberger has a man-crush on Miller and Miller shows no ill effects of the devastating knee injury he sustained last year.
  • Steelers linebacker Jason Worilds continues to impress in place of LaMarr Woodley with 10 tackles, two sacks and a tackle for a loss. Grab him if you can as Worilds would make a cheap replacement for Woodley in Pittsburgh next year.

Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Steelers outlast Lions, 37-27

  • Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a huge day going 29 of 45 for 367 yards with four touchdowns and no turnovers. Big Ben can still sling it around and could be a decent QB2 asset in dynasty leagues.
  • Roethlisberger’s favorite target was Antonio Brown with 13 targets, 10 catches, 147 yards and two touchdowns. I’ve said it before but Antonio Brown is a guarantee top 10 receiver every week. The only receiver playing better is…
  • Lions receiver Calvin Johnson, who had six catches on 13 targets for 179 yards and tow touchdowns. There’s just no one better in the game.
  • Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy had a big day with 12 tackles to go along with two passes defended and two tackles for a loss. Levy is a force in the passing game and someone to monitor as a LB2/3 going in to next year.
