Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Ravens rout Falcons, 29-7

  • Ravens running back Justin Forsett continues to get the work, piling up 95 yards on the ground. He out touched Bernard Pierce 25-8 and continues to be a RB2 this year. I can’t imagine Forsett going anywhere next year and could be a value.
  • Falcons receiver Roddy White had a throwback game with nine catches for 100 yards and a touchdown. We’d still move on from him in dynasty formats.
  • Falcons linebacker Joplo Bartu led the way with 15 tackles. But with so much uncertainty between him and rookie Prince Shembo, it’s a situation to avoid.
  • Ravens linebacker Daryl Smith had a good day with 13 tackles and a pass defended. Smith continues to play at LB1 level and should be considered that in dynasty formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Ravens demolish Steelers, 26-6

  • The Ravens running back situation may be clearing up with Bernard Pierce leading the way with 96 yards on 22 carries. If he can string more of those types of performances together, he’ll be the running back to own in dynasty.
  • On the other side of the field, Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell looks like a beast. He had 59 yards rushing along with five catches for 48 yards. He’s a legit RB1 in dynasty going forward.
  • Steelers receiver Antonio Brown continues to be a low-end WR1 in dynasty. He racked up seven catches for 90 yards on 12 targets. Even with the Steelers lose, he’s a winner.
  • On the IDP side, linebacker Lawrence Timmons won’t go quietly as he racked up 12 tackles. He still plays three downs so he’s still a decent LB2/3 option.

Updated Dynasty Running Back Rankings – March 2014

  • Top five has a slightly different order but the same players: LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles, Eddie Lacy now at 3, Adrian Peterson now at 4, and Doug Martin dropping to 5.
  • The risers this month include Bernard Pierce, David Wilson, Latavius Murray, Rashad Jennings, and LeGarrette Blount. Pierce’s rise is inherently tied to Ray Rice‘s fall. Rice’s production dropped off a cliff last year and an off-season domestic assault incident doesn’t help. Wilson looks as healthy as he has in a while and there is optimism he’ll pick up where he left off as the primary back in New York. Murray ad Jennings, The two Oakland backs, now have a clear path to a more prominent role now that the Raiders are letting Darren McFadden walk. Blount’s rise will only prove accurate if he sticks in New England where coach Bill Belichick got the absolute most out of him.
  • Drops this month include Maurice Jones-Drew, Darren Sproles, Danny Woodhead, Rashard Mendenhall, and Fred Jackson. Jones-Drew’s impending free agency, and where he signs, are resulting in his fall as he’s most likely done as a featured back. Sproles, recently released by the Saints, looked bad down the stretch and, at 32, still struggle to find a similar situation as he had in New Orleans. Woodhead’s play also tailed off at the end of 2013 but his value in PPR dynasty leagues should be higher. Mendenhall looks set to retire. And finally, add another year to Fred Jackson who, at 33, is officially the oldest running back on the list. His only value is if you need to win this year.
