Dynasty Recap – Week 13 – Eagles escape Cardinals, 24-21

  • Eagles quarterback Nick Foles had another great game, going 21 of 34 for 237 yards and three more touchdowns with zero interceptions. There’s no doubt who will be the starter next year in Philadelphia.
  • Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had 79 yards rushing on 19 carries to go along with five catches and 36 yards. McCoy is averaging over 4+ YPC with Foles at quarterback compared to 5+ with Michael Vick but as long as McCoy doesn’t fall below that 4.0 number, it won’t be a problem.
  • Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd continues to establish himself as the rightful heir to Larry Fitzgerald whether that’s next year or beyond. Floyd led the team with 10 targets, five catches for 99 yards and a touchdown.
  • Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby continues his stellar play with nine tackles, two sacks and a pass defended. Originally signed to fill in for Daryl Washington, Dansby has played too well to get off the field. It’ll be interesting to see where he goes next year as he’s only playing on a one year deal.

Dynasty Recap – Week 8 – Cardinals down Falcons, 27-13

  • The Cardinals finally allowed Andre Ellington to start and he didn’t disappoint. Ellington had 154 yards on 15 carries and a long touchdown. He added two catches for eight yards. However, the Cardinals still don’t want to give Ellington more than the 12-15 carries he’s been getting since Stepfan Taylor had just as many carries but a 2.7 YPC. There’s no logical reason to not hand the keys over to Ellington but it is what it is.
  • Falcons receiver Harry Douglas, filling in for Roddy White and Julio Jones, had 12 catches on 18 targets for 121 yards. Douglas will make a fine option for the rest of 2013 but is already 29 and, unless he goes elsewhere, probably won’t be a dynasty factor.
  • Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington had six tackles but added three passes defended and an interception. Washington has been as good as advertised and filled up the stat sheet for the Cardinals.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Cardinals beat Panthers, 22-6

  • Panthers quarterback Cam Newton passed for 300 yards and three interceptions. He continues to play with a sub-par supporting cast and sub-par coaching, both of which should improve after this year. I suspect it will making Newton a buy-low candidate. It’ll still cost you but Newton is too good to not get a look for your dynasty team.
  • Cardinals running back Andre Ellington may be pulling away with the starting job in Arizona. He had 52 yards on just seven carries along with four catches for 31 yards. Now would be the time to make a play for Ellington before it’s too late.
  • The Arizona defense had a field day against Carolina, most notably linebacker Daryl Washington who came back from suspension. The 27-year old had nine tackles, two sacks, three tackles for a loss, and a pass defended. He’s an IDP dynasty stud and should be held on to for many years to come.
