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.

Dynasty Recap – Week 16 – Rams beat Buccaneers, 23-13

  • The Rams pounded the ball with Zac Stacy, giving him the ball 33 times for 104 yards, and a touchdown. Stacy will be an intriguing RB2 dynasty prospect heading in to 2014 and the Rams have shown they’re committed.
  • Rams rookie receiver Stedman Bailey led the team in targets and catches with three out of five targets for 44 yards. He also had a 27 yard touchdown run. It wasn’t much but Bailey should be monitored in dynasty circles.
  • Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson had five catches for 98 yards. Jackson is at 1,000 yards again with a 15+ YPC. Should Tampa draft a quarterback in the draft, Jackson’s stock will improve.
  • Rams lineman Robert Quinn led the defense with three more sacks. He now has a league-leading 18 on the year and is establishing himself as  the top-rated lineman in dynasty leagues.
  • Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David had 11 more tackles, giving him 137 for the year. He also added a fumble recovery. David is solidifying himself as a Tier 1 LB in dynasty heading in to 2014.

Dynasty Recap – Week 15 – 49ers blow out Buccaneers, 33-14

  • 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick showed flashes of his potential greatness going 19 of 29 for 203 yards, two touchdowns, and zero turnovers. He also added 39 yards rushing. Granted, it was against a bad team but Kap could be back on track.
  • Buccaneers tight end Tim Wright had his first good game in a while, catching seven of nine targets for 82 yards and a touchdown. Wright should head in to 2014 as the starter and could be a decent dynasty option at tight end.
  • 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith had two sacks and is picking up where he left off. Hopefully Smith can keep his head on straight and continue to be the productive linebacker he’s shown to be in the past.

Dynasty Recap – Week 14 – Buccaneers beat up Bills, 27-6

  • Bills rookie quarterback E.J. Manual was just bad. Going 18 of 33 for 184 yards, a 5.6 YPA, zero touchdowns and four interceptions. Manual wishes this season would end soon so he can improve upon it.
  • Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey ran for 127 yards on 22 carries and a touchdown. Rainey is the third running back to be featured in Tampa’s offense this season after injuries depleted them. Even though he’s just 26, don’t expect Rainey to have any dynasty value after this season.
  • Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David was all sorts of awesome with nine tackles, a sack, two tackles for a loss, two passes defended and two interceptions. He’s a bona fide LB1 in dynasty circles.

Dynasty Recap – Week 13 – Panthers shred Buccaneers, 27-6

  • Panthers quarterback Cam Newton had a good game, for the most part. He went 18 of 29 for 263 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions and tacked on 68 yards rushing and another touchdown. Newton has pulled ahead of Andrew Luck in recent weeks as far as dynasty ranks.
  • Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart failed to run with the running back job (no pun intended) running for just 39 yards on 14 carries. There’s literally no running back in Carolina worth a long-term look in dynasty leagues right now.
  • Panthers tight end Greg Olsen tied for the team-lead in targets with seven and hauled in five of them for 85 yards. You always know what you’re getting with Olsen – nothing too flashy but a higher floor than most.
  • Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David continues to be a LB1 with nine tackles and an interception. There’s very few linebackers I’d rather have in dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 12 – Bucs surprise Lions, 24-21

  • Bucs rookie quarterback Mike Glennon continues his impressive run, going 14 of 21 for 247 yards, an 11.8 YPA and two touchdowns with zero turnovers.
  • A week after (allegedly) being benched for losing a fumble, Lions running back Reggie Bush was back to normal with 85 yards rushing and four catches for 17 yards.
  • Lions receiver Nate Burleson picked up where he left off, catching seven passes for 77 yards. Burleson’s getting up there in age and has a pricey cap number next year but is a solid WR4 with WR3 upside when healthy and playing in Detroit.
  • Lions rookie lineman Ezekiel Ansah had two sacks in his first action in a month. He’s a good one.
  • Bucs linebacker Lavonte David led his team in tackles with 12 along with an interception and pass defended. He’s a bona fide LB1.
