Dynasty Recap – Vikings escape Redskins, 29-26

  • Vikings rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had an ok game with 268 yards and a touchdown but, perhaps more importantly, no interceptions. He should continue to get better.
  • Redskins running back Alfred Morris had a bit of a comeback game with 92 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Hopefully Morris can keep it up and look more like the productive back he’s been thus far.
  • Vikings safety Harrison Smith continues to play like a DB1 with 10 more tackles. He’ll be a DB1 in dynasty formats for many years to come.
  • Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway continues to put on a display with eight tackles and a sack. Greenway was all but forgotten lately but has played like the LB1 he used to be.

Dynasty Recap – Week 13 – Vikings escape Bears, 23-20

  • Bears backup quarterback Josh McCown had a stellar day going 23 of 36 for 355 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. McCown is making it an interesting decision for Chicago in the off-season as Jay Cutler is due to be a free agent. McCown is already 34 but could be a decent buffer for a drafted quarterback.
  • Vikings running back Adrian Peterson went off for 211 yards on 35 carries for a 6.0 YPC. There’s just no stopping no matter who the quarterback or team is.
  • Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery also went off for 12 catches and 249 yards and two touchdowns. There’s no doubt that Jeffery is on par, if not exceeded, Marshall’s value in dynasty circles.
  • Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway led the Vikings in tackles with 10 and included a sack. Greenway continues to be a tackle machine with 95 so far in 2013 with a quarter of the season to go.

Dynasty Recap – Week 10 – Vikings beat Redskins, 34-27

  • Redskins running back Alfred Morris continued to romp with 139 yards on 26 carries for a 5+ YPA. Good things happen when Morris gets the ball. You can lock him in as a good, young runner in a very fantasy-friendly offense.
  • Redskins tight end Jordan Reed had the second most targets with nine and hauled in six catches for 62 yards and a touchdown. Reed should be a top two option in the Redskins pass game for many years to come.
  • Vikings replacement tight end John Carlson led the team in targets with seven which just shows you how random the Vikings passing game is. No one can be trusted right now and there’s not even a dynasty hold except Patterson.
  • On defense, Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway had his best tackle game of the year with 16. Greenway has a good, but not great, year fantasy-wise. Greenway will be 31 next year and Minnesota may want to revamp a defense that’s currently 30th in yardage allowed.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Vikings get first win over Steelers, 34-27

  • Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell made his debut and looked good. He only averaged 3.7 YPC on 16 carries but had four catches for 27 yards. His role should only increase throughout the year.
  • Minnesota quarterback Matt Cassel had a stellar day with a 64% completion percentage, 10 YPA, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Minnesota will still search for a quarterback to groom but Cassel could have value this year in an effort to audition for a job next year. Just don’t be in a hurry to ride him to a championship.
  • Pittsburgh wide receiver Antonio Brown continues to snag the most targets for Pittsburgh. With 13 more to go with 12 catches, there is no doubt Brown is bottom-tier WR1 for dynasty purposes and more ideally a WR2.
  • Pittsburgh rookie receiver Markus Wheaton saw five  targets today, a season-high. As Wheaton develops, he’ll get more looks. He’s a good buy-low candidate.
  • Minnesota linebacker Chad Greenway had his best game of the year with 10 tackles, a sack, an interception and a pass defended. At 30, Greenway is most likely on the downside of his career and could make great trade bait for a contending dynasty team.
