2015 NFL Draft – 30th Overall Pick – Packers Draft Damarious Randall

With the 30th overall pick, the Packers drafted safety Damarious Randall.

After drafting safety last year with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, the Packers go back to the well with Randall. He racked up the tackles in college while showing excellent coverage skills. For IDP leagues, Randall could be the first rookie DB off the board and should have more value in big play leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Seahawks 36, Packers 16

  • Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson does what he does – 191 yards and two touchdowns with no turnovers. He also added 29 yards on the ground. It’s not sexy but he’ll produce.
  • Beast mode was in full effect as Marshawn Lynch ran for 110 yards and two touchdowns. Christine Michael may be the future but Lynch can still produce.
  • One of the bright spots for the Packers was Jordy Nelson picking up where he left off with nine catches for 83 yards. He also led the team with 14 targets and it wasn’t close.
  • On the IDP side, Bobby Wagner proved his LB1 chops with 14 tackles.

Dynasty Recap – Week 3 – Bengals scrape by Packers, 34-30

  • Cincinnati rookie running back Giovani Bernard continues to get more playing time.  He had 10 carries (same as BenJarvis Green-Ellis) and 5.0 YPC with four receptions for 49 yards. He’s the real deal. 
  • On the other side of the ball, Green Bay running back Johnathan Franklin had 103 yards rushing after taking over for James Starks. This after showing nothing in training camp and the season so far. Maybe this is a sign of things to come and Franklin can finally be the compliment to Eddie Lacy. He’s also in line for major time in years to come should Lacy get banged up. 
  • The Green Bay passing game continues to be an equal opportunity employer with targets all around to Jordy Nelson (9), Randall Cobb (11), and James Jones (8). James Jones is the only one not signed through next year and would be severely affected if he’s not in the Green Bay lineup. 
  • Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict racked up 11 more tackles. The 22-year old already has 28 tackles on the year, making him a tackle machine in dynasty leagues. He’s less big play but more solid contributor. 
  • The young bookends of the defensive line for Cincinnati each racked up a sack. Michael Johnson (1.5) and Carlos Dunlap (1.0) both still under 27 years of age, are solid defensive lineman in dynasty fantasy football. Either one would be a contributor.
