Tampa rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins should be ready for the season but will be behind thanks to late graduation. He’s also recovering from a stress fracture surgery earlier this off-season. ASJ could be a good sleeper pick in your rookie dynasty drafts as he could develop into a prime red zone target.
Expect Lions defensive end Ziggy Ansah to be moved around more along the defensive line which should free him up to get to the passer. Ansah had a decent rookie year and should progress even more.
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford had a very Matthew Stafford game, throwing for 330 yards on 22 of 35 passing with three touchdowns but two interceptions and a fumble lost. This is the Matthew Stafford dynasty leaguers will have to live with.
Lions running back Reggie Bush had 117 yards rushing and 65 yards receiving on five catches with a touchdown. He did lose a fumble but that didn’t stop him. You have to wonder how Reggie’s fumble issues will affect his play going forward. Backup Joique Bell had 94 yards rushing on 19 carries with 34 yards on three receptions and another touchdown.
Lions receiver Calvin Johnson had 101 yards on six catches and a touchdown. He’s the best and I have a man crush on him and I don’t care who knows it.
A bright spot for the Packers was safety Morgan Burnett had nine tackles, two fumble recoveries and a touchdown. His value only increases as the Packers allow more yards and points.
Lions rookie defensive end Ziggy Ansah had two sacks for the second straight game after missing a month. Playing in that system, in which Cliff Avril was a star, should only increase Ansah’s value along with his age and contract.
Bucs rookie quarterback Mike Glennon continues his impressive run, going 14 of 21 for 247 yards, an 11.8 YPA and two touchdowns with zero turnovers.
A week after (allegedly) being benched for losing a fumble, Lions running back Reggie Bushwas back to normal with 85 yards rushing and four catches for 17 yards.
Lions receiver Nate Burleson picked up where he left off, catching seven passes for 77 yards. Burleson’s getting up there in age and has a pricey cap number next year but is a solid WR4 with WR3 upside when healthy and playing in Detroit.
Lions rookie lineman Ezekiel Ansah had two sacks in his first action in a month. He’s a good one.
Bucs linebacker Lavonte David led his team in tackles with 12 along with an interception and pass defended. He’s a bona fide LB1.
The Washington offense continues to fire on all cylinders. Running back Alfred Morris averaged five yards a carry but only had 15 of them.
Washington receiver Pierre Garçon was targeted 13 times and grabbed eight of them. He’ll continue to be Washington’s top target in the RG3 era.
Defensively for Washington, Perry Riley had 10 tackles, a tackle for a loss, and a pass defended. He continues to be one of the bright spots for dynasty fantasy owners on an otherwise dismal Washington defense.
Joique Bell did his best Reggie Bush impression and had 3.2 YPC while racking up 69 yards receiving. He had 132 total and continues to be a high on the handcuff list.
For Detroit, Ezekiel Ansah continues to make people forget about Cliff Avril, tallying two more sacks today and a forced fumble.
