Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – 49ers hang on over Giants,16-10

  • 49ers running back Frank Gore turned back the clock with 95 yards on 19 carries. He showed what can happen if you give him the ball but should still be a non-factor in dynasty leagues next year.
  • Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham continues to impress with six catches for 93 yards. The only downside is he was targeted 13 times, converting less than half. But as long as keeps getting the reps, Beckham is a possible WR2 every week.
  • Giants receiver Rueben Randle had a game-high seven catches for 112 yards on 15 targets. It was a nice game but we expect Randle to be the odd man out in New York next year.
  • 49ers linebacker Chris Borland continues to impress with 13 tackles, 3 passes defended and two interceptions. He’s playing like a LB1 and should have a place in the lineup next year.

Updated Dynasty Running Back Rankings – July 2014

Complete dynasty running back rankings can be found here.

  • andersonTop five remains the same with LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles, Eddie Lacy, Doug Martin and Gio Bernard staying in that order.
  • The big movers this month include Broncos backup C.J. Anderson, who ended last season ahead of Ronnie Hillman, up to 59 after not being ranked; and Browns rookie Isaiah Crowell up to 57 from 62, who moves up after more talk of a committee in Cleveland.
  • The drops this month include Darren Sproles from 51 to 55 after assurances that LeSean will still get his; Kendall Hunter from 59 to 64 after it appears Carlos Hyde is most likely to take over Frank Gore’s carries; and LeGarrettee Blount from 61 to 65.

Daily Dynasty Update – January 24th

  • Giants running back David Wilson now has his neck brace off after surgery. It’s good news for Wilson but dynasty owners are still in a holding pattern. Wilson’s availability right now is a complete question mark.
  • New Browns coach Mike Pettine is a fan of quarterback Brian Hoyer. At the very least, Hoyer will enter the season as one of the better backup prospects in all of football. It’s even possible the Browns take a project at QB and allow Hoyer the starting job one more year.
  • In an interesting stat, Texans quarterback Case Keenum lost more yards per sack than any other quarterback in the league. Keenum is not the long-term answer at quarterback for the Texans who are widely expected to draft one in May with the first overall pick.
  • The Frank Gore contract with San Francisco is finally becoming an issue with Gore due $6 million next year at age 31. Even an amateur Madden player in Franchise mode would know that is too much for a 31-year old. It shouldn’t be an issue as Gore is expected back next year but his days are numbered as a reliable fantasy back. Trade him now and look for Kendall Hunter and Marcus Lattimore to get more looks in 2014 no matter what.

Dynasty Recap – Week 14 – 49ers escape Seahawks, 19-17

  • 49ers running back Frank Gore turned back the clock and had 110 yards on 17 carries. He’s already 30 and only under contract with San Francisco for one more year. Gore’s dynasty value won’t last much longer.
  • Seahawks rookie tight end Luke Willson had three catches for 70 yards and a touchdown. Willson has the physical tools to be a productive tight end for many years. Keep an eye on him in the off-season.
  • 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman had nine more tackles and a sack. On the year, Bowman has 120 tackles, four sacks, six passes defended and three forced fumbles. Bowman is a LB1 in any dynasty format.

Dynasty Recap – Week 10 – Panthers slip by 49ers, 10-9

  • 49ers running back Frank Gore had 82 yards on 16 carries fora 5+ YPC. Makes you wonder why San Francisco didn’t turn to Gore more. However, for dynasty purposes, Gore is already 30 and has one year left on his contract. You’d be wise to trade him off for an asset now. 
  • 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick threw for 91 yards on 50% passing, exposing what happens when San Francisco had zero weapons to work with after Vernon Davis’ concussion. Kap is a definite buy-low candidate until the 49ers addresses its receivers issue.
  • Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly led the Panthers with one of their six sacks and had 11 tackles and one pass defended.
  • Not to be outdone, 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks had three sacks on the day to bring his total to 6.5. At 29 and signing an extension before 2012, Brooks will be in the same situation that has brought him continued success so he could be a name to fill your LB2/3 position.
