- Somehow, Titans quarterback Jake Locker had 266 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.
- In the running game, Shonn Greene was your lead back with 15 carries followed by Dexter McCluster with nine carries and rookie Bishop Sankey with six. Sankey is still ranked high but needs to start closing the gap to be a value in dynasty.
- On the other side of the field, Jamaal Charles had only 19 yards on 7 carries with four catches for 15 yards. The Chiefs were behind most of the game and could explain his lack of production. Not time to worry yet.
- On the IDP side, Eric Berry had a game-high 15 tackles to go along with a pass defended. He’s a DB1 in all dynasty formats.

- A new entry in the top five with Johnathan Cyprien. The top five in order is Harrison Smith, Morgan Burnett, Cyprien, Earl Thomas, and Mark Barron.
- The big drops include Eric Berry from 2 to 6 and rookie Deone Bucannon from 21 to 27.
- Some risers include Malcolm Jenkins from 24 to 20; Antrelle Rolle from 32 to 26; and Major Wright from 34 to 30.

- Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers had an outstanding day, going 27 of 39 for 392 yards and three touchdowns and zero turnovers. Rivers continues his renaissance connecting on 71% of his passes and an 8+ YPA. You could do worse with your QB2 this year and beyond.
- Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles continued his efficient play with 115 yards on just 14 carries, two touchdowns and added four catches for 42 yards. Charles is close to being the top-rated running back in dynasty circles.
- Chargers rookie receiver Keenan Allen continued his successful rookie season with nine catches for 124 yards. He’ll be viewed as a WR2 going forward.
- Chiefs defensive back Eric Berry had a solid outing with eight tackles, a pass defended and a sack. He’ll continue to be a DB1.
Here’s what already happened so take note!
- Eric Berry could lead the Chiefs in interceptions AND sacks (!). Berry may be undervalued at #6 in dynasty ranks.
- Danny Amendola has become dependable (sound familiar?). Amendola appears to be vastly underrated at #32 and could be a WR1 in PPR leagues.
- DeAndre Hopkins keeps getting better. It wouldn’t be a stretch to make him the first receiver off the dynasty fantasy boards.
- Sean Weatherspoon dislocated his finger but is expected to be fine. Injuries to the fingers aren’t nearly as big a problem for linebackers. Weatherspoon is a still a go to be a LB2 in dynasty leagues for many years to come.
- With the injury to Jeremy Maclin and the absence of Riley Cooper, somebody had to step up in Philly. It appears that person might be Russell Shepard. He’s turned in good practices and made the #2 spot his to lose.
- Julius Thomas has been playing with the first team as the ‘receiving’ tight end in Denver. While this year it may be tough to get looks after Wes Welker, Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas. Julius is #39 in current dynasty ranks but could improve upon that this year.
- Ryan Williams injury in Arizona is making his roster spot dicey. As we looked at the rookie runners, Arizona has two potential replacements for Rashard Mendenhall’s backup.
- Rookie running back Chris Thompson continues to recover from a knee injury. Thompson is an intriguing pick but ideally as a taxi squad player on a team with Alfred Morris.
- Tyler Wilson is now 4th on the Raiders depth chart (that includes Terrell Pryor and now Matt McGloin). It’s time to move on from any thoughts of Wilson being a dynasty asset.
And remember, if you’re able to read this, it’s the best day ever.
