Dynasty Recap – Week 17 – Panthers edge Falcons, 21-20

  • Panthers tight end Greg Olsen ended the year with six catches for 42 yards and a touchdown. Olsen has quietly been a TE1 all year as Cam Newton’s favorite target. He will be again no matter who the Panthers bring in.
  • Falcons receiver Roddy White showed vintage form again with eight catches for 91 yards and a touchdown. There’s a lot to be excited about with the Falcons offense heading in to 2014. All of them are buy-low candidates.
  • Panthers end Greg Hardy had an incredible four sacks to bring his season total to 15. He’ll be 26 heading in to 2014 and is a legit DL1 in dynasty leagues.
  • Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow capped his impressive rookie half-season with 13 tackles and a sack. Worrilow had over 100 tackles in barely a half season as a starter and the future is bright.

Dynasty Recap – Week 16 – 49ers outlast Falcons, 34-24

  • 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick went 13 of 21 for 197 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 51 yards and another score. Kaepernick and Russell Wilson are in similar situations wherein their value is capped by the talent around them. Should the 49ers dramatically improve their receiving corps, watch out.
  • Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had a nice night, going 37 of 48 for 348 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. Ryan is a big bounce back dynasty player for 2014 with Julio Jones coming back.
  • 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree showed what the 49ers what they were missing after catching five balls for 102 yards. Crabtree is one of those prospects that might actually improve in value with another top-notch receiver playing opposite him in San Francisco.
  • Falcons receiver Roddy White had a vintage night with 12 catches for 141 yards and a touchdown. White will be 33 next year but, if healthy, is just as dominant as he always was.
  • 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman had 11 tackles plus an interception returned for a touchdown. Bowman has filled the stat sheet all year and has a case for fantasy IDP MVP. He’ll be a top-ranked LB1 heading in to 2014.

Dynasty Recap – Week 15 – Falcons slip by Redskins, 27-26

  • Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins had a good fantasy game going 29 of 45 for 381 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. He’s certainly going to make it interesting in Washington in the off-season.
  • Redskins running back Alfred Morris bounced back with 98 yards rushing on 18 carries. He now has over 1,000 yards with a fantastic 4.7 YPC. Morris has been one of the few bright spots in Washington this season.
  • Redskins receiver Pierre Garçon hauled in seven catches for 129 yards on 10 targets. Another bright spot for Washington, Garçon should be a WR2 heading in to 2014, no matter who the quarterback is next year.
  • Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow has nine more tackles to give him 100 on the year. It’s an incredible feat since Worrilow has only started the last seven games. He’ll be a high-end LB2 next year.

Dynasty Recap – Week 14 – Packers edge Falcons, 22-21

  • Falcons receiver Roddy White had his second straight positive performance with eight catches for 74 yards on 10 targets. With stories of White and the Falcons revising his deal to ensure he comes back, he’ll still be a decent WR3 for a few years.
  • Packers tight end Andrew Quarless had his best receiving day as a pro with six catches for 66 yards. Don’t expect anything more than that as Quarless is a free agent and athletically gifted Brandon Bostick is waiting in the wings.
  • Falcons rookie linebacker Paul Worrilow continued his impressive season with 12 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a tackles for a loss and a pass defended. By all accounts, Worrilow is the real deal who needs to be owned in dynasty leagues in 2014 and beyond.

Dynasty Recap – Week 13 – Falcons escape Bills, 34-31

  • Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had a solid say, going 28 of 47 for 311 yards and a touchdown. Ryan has still had a decent season despite the Falcons record. He’ll be primed for a comeback season in 2014.
  • Bills running back C.J. Spiller carried the ball 15 times for 149 yards and a touchdown. Hopefully Spiller’s injury woes are behind him and with Fred Jackson being one year older next year, maybe it’ll be time for Spiller to carry the full load.
  • Even with Falcons receiver Roddy White‘s breakout game of 10 catches for 143 yards, I’m more encouraged by fellow receiver Harry Douglas. He led the team with 15 targets and hauled in six of them for 73 yards. It’ll be very interesting to see what Atlanta does at receiver next year but Douglas has some potential.
  • Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow led the team in tackles and now has 89 on the year. It’s an incredible number when you consider he had 17 through the first seven games of the season. Undrafted out of Delaware, Worrilow looks like a keeper.

Dynasty Recap – Week 12 – Saints edge Falcons, 17-13

  • Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a good day, going 23 of 33 for 278 yards and two touchdowns with an 8+ YPA. Brees is a top three dynasty quarterback, regardless of age.
  • Saints running back Pierre Thomas had a great day in place of Darren Sproles. Rushing for 73 yards on just 10 carries he added 57 yards on five receptions. This just shows how valuable a primary running back in New Orleans could be.
  • Falcons receiver Harry Douglas continues to produce, drawing a team-high 11 targets for nine catches and 79 yards. It’s hard to say where Douglas fits in the 2014 Falcons plans but he’s making the most of his opportunity.
  • Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan was a beast with six tackles, 2.5 sacks, two tackles for a loss and even a pass defended. At 24, Jordan is a definitive DL1 in dynasty circles.
