Dynasty Recap – Wild Card – Saints escape Eagle, 26-24

  • Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a very average day, going 20 of 30 for 250 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Brees goes up against Seattle next week. This game does nothing to dispel the notion that Brees can’t put up his usual numbers outside of a dome.
  • Eagles quarterback Nick Foles had another efficient day, going 23 of 33 for 195 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. He’ll be a QB1 in dynasty circles heading in to next season.
  • Saints running back Mark Ingram picked up the slack with 97 rushing yards and a touchdown. Ingram is eligible to be cut before next season but games like this will help him stick around.
  • Eagles receiver Riley Cooper led the Eagles with six catches for 68 yards and a touchdown. The free agent had quite the year with the racial slur controversy in the beginning but found his groove with Foles. It’ll be interesting to see if Philadelphia brings him back.

Dynasty Recap – Week 17 – Eagles squeak by Cowboys, 24-22

  • Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was his usual, efficient self going 17 of 26 for 261 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Foles could be a top-1o dynasty quarterback heading in to 2014.
  • Eagles running back LeSean McCoy ran wild (again) with 131 yards on 27 carries. With his combination of age, skill, and opportunity, there’s simply no better option at running back in dynasty rankings.
  • Cowboys tight end Jason Witten showed he had some fight left, catching 12 passes for 135 yards. Despite his age, Witten is still a top five tight end in dynasty rankings ahead of 2014.
  • Cowboys defensive tackle Jason Hatcher had two more sacks to give him 11 on the year in a surprisingly good fantasy year. However, Hatcher will be 32 next year and the Cowboys scheme is up in the air. It would be best to avoid. 

Dynasty Recap – Week 16 – Eagles blow out Bears, 54-11

  • Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was extremely efficient, going 21 of 25 for 230 yards and two touchdowns. He’s looking like a QB1 in dynasty leagues heading in to 2014.
  • Eagles running back LeSean McCoy ran wild with 133 yards on just 18 carries and two touchdowns. He also added six catches for 29 yards. It’s been a race all year for fantasy MVP between McCoy and Jamaal Charles. Both are at the top of the dynasty charts.
  • The game got so out of hand the Eagles backup running back Bryce Brown had 115 yards on just nine carries. Just this week we covered Brown’s disappointing year but this game may restore faith in his dynasty prospects.
  • Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks was an animal with five tackles and two sacks. He now has 94 tackles and four sacks on the year. Kendricks is just 23 and should be a consistent dynasty produce for many years to come.

Dynasty Recap – Week 15 – Vikings upset Eagles, 48-30

  • Eagles quarterback Nick Foles had another great game, going 30 of 48 for 428 yards and three touchdowns with one interception. There’s no doubt who will be the starter in Philadelphia next year and it might mean Foles is a QB1 in dynasty leagues.
  • The main beneficiary of Foles’ production was DeSean Jackson, catching 10 for 195 yards and a touchdown. With Foles at quarterback for most of the season, Jackson is on pace to set a career-high in yards and already has in catches. He’ll be an intriguing WR2 prospect in dynasty heading in to 2014.
  • Vikings receiver Greg Jennings had his best game as a Viking with 163 yards on 11 catches and a touchdown. Jennings is rapidly getting older but should get an upgrade at quarterback next year. He’ll be nothing more than a WR4 in 2014 and will be worse after that.
  • Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks filled the stat sheet with eight tackles, a sack, and an interception. At just 23, he’s a legit LB1 in dynasty circles.

Dynasty Recap – Week 14 – Eagles beat Lions, 34-20

  • It was the LeSean McCoy show as he ran amok in the snow. McCoy went off for 217 yards on 29 carries and two touchdowns. This season should leave little doubt as to who is the top dynasty running back.
  • Lions running back Joique Bell also took advantage of the snow, along with a last-minute injury to Reggie Bush to have 69 yards rushing to go along with four catches and 58 yards. He also added a touchdown. Bell is a must-have handcuff as he’s proven he can handle the load and Bush just can’t seem to stay healthy.
  • Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch had 10 more tackles to give him 107 on the year. It’s his fifth straight season of 100+ tackles. Tulloch is in the prime of his career and isn’t going anywhere soon.

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.
