Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Saints beat Panthers, 28-10

  • Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a good, not great, day with 297 yards and a touchdown. Certainly not the days from Brees were use to but Brees shouldn’t’ be  viewed as anything more than a mid-QB1 anyway.
  • Meanwhile, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had seven catches for 83 yards and a touchdown which is more in-line with his usual production. He should continue to be an elite TE1 in dynasty formats even if Gronk challenges him for the top spot.
  • Panthers rookie receiver Kelvin Benjamin had a horrible game with just two catches for 18 yards on ten targets. The targets are encouraging but it won’t happen again if Benjamin only secures two targets.
  • Saints linebacker Junior Galette had two more sacks to make it six on the year. He’s just getting warmed up as a sack specialist and should be viewed as a poor man’s Justin Houston and a LB2/3.

Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Lions slip by Saints, 24-23

  • Saints quarterback Drew Brees returned to a little normalcy with 342 yards and two touchdowns all without a full-strength Jimmy Graham. However, Brees has not looked like his usual self this year and is in the big group of QB1’s in dynasty formats.
  • The same could be said for Lions quarterback Matt Stafford with 299 yards and two touchdowns and two interceptions without Calvin Johnson. He’s had a sub-par (for him) season as well and is squarely in the QB1 bunch but definitely not elite.
  • Lions receiver Golden Tate had a big day while continuing his big season with ten catches for 154 yards and a touchdown. Tate is a solid WR3/4 in dynasty formats.
  • Saints linebacker Curtis Lofton had a season-high 16 tackles and has solidified his standing as a low-end LB1 especially in tackle heavy formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Saints survive Buccaneers, 37-31

  • Saints quarterback Drew Brees slung it around for 371 yards, two touchdowns but three interceptions. Brees hasn’t found his rhythm this year which could mean the beginning of the end.
  • In, possibly, his last start for this year, Saints running back Khiry Robinson had 89 yards and a touchdown. Robinson is averaging more than five yards a carry this year and should be the primary back in New Orleans next year. Count him as a RB3 in dynasty leagues.
  • With rookie Mike Evans out, Tampa receiver Vincent Jackson broke out with eight catches for 144 yards. He should still be considered a WR2/3 in dynasty leagues.
  • Bucs linebacker Lavonte David continues to show why he’s a LB1 in dynasty formats with 14 tackles and a pass defended.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Packers come back against Jets, 31-24

  • Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was in top form with 346 yards and three touchdowns. Thanks to his production and age (unlike Drew Brees and Peyton Manning), he’s the consensus QB1 in dynasty formats.
  • The primary beneficiary was receiver Jordy Nelson at nine catches for 209 yards on a staggering 16 targets. Thanks to his extension, Nelson is a consensus WR1 in all dynasty formats.
  • Meanwhile, Jets receiver Eric Decker was having a nice day with four catches, 63 yards and a touchdown before getting injured. Decker is proving he can be a reliable WR2/3 in dynasty formats even with questionable quarterback play.
  • Packers safety Morgan Burnett had another great day with 11 tackles and a pass defended. He’s a legit DB1 in all dynasty formats.
