Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Saints 27, Colts 21

Saints 

  • Drew Brees had an ordinary day with 255 yards plus a touchdown and an interception. It becomes harder to keep Brees as a certain QB1 in dynasty formats.
  • Meanwhile, Mark Ingram had a good week with 143 yards plus a touchdown. He had two touchdowns vultured and actually had the same number of carries as Khiry Robinson but he made the most of them.
  • Rookie linebacker Stephone Anthony had seven tackles plus a big interception. He’s currently no higher than a LB2/3 but more plays like that and he could end up as a LB1.

Colts

  • Another high scoring day for Andrew Luck with 333 yards and three touchdowns plus two interceptions while playing most of the game behind. Luck’s play has fallen off to the point where no one thinks he’s the top dynasty quarterback anymore.
  • On the receiving side, T.Y. Hilton had a very TY-like day with four catches for 150 yards and two touchdowns. Hilton continues to be the top receiving threat in a pass-heavy offense which means good WR2 value.
  • LInebacker Jerrell Freeman had 12 more tackles and is now up to 48 on the season. In tackle-friendly formats, Freeman is a LB1/2.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Colts take down Seahawks, 34-28

  • Through 20 games of his short career, running back Trent Richardson has a 3.5 YPC. It’s reasonable to think this may be it for Richardson and to possibly even sell high. Until he can prove he can take over games, he’s average.
  • The merry-go-round continues in the Seattle receiving game as Golden Tate led the way this week with 11 targets followed by Doug Baldwin with nine. It will be interesting to see if Percy Harvin can step in and immediately take the targets away.
  • Meanwhile, Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton had a breakout game with 140 yards and two touchdowns. He made the most of his six targets, grabbing five of them. He may finally be on the hook going forward and should be looked at in dynasty circles.
  • Seahawks safety Earl Thomas continues his All-Pro season with 10 more tackles. For the season, he has 32 tackles, two forced fumbles, two interceptions, and three passes defended. At just 24, and in that defense, Thomas is a guy to get.
  • On the other side of the field, Colts linebacker Jerrell Freeman added 13 tackles to bring his total for the season to 43. The tackle machine had 145 last year in his rookie year and should continue that production. However, Freeman started late and is already 27 after spending a few years in the CFL so grab him now if you’re going to get any production from him in dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 3 – Colts dominate 49ers, 27-7

  • It wasn’t pretty for 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. He finished with 150 yards and one interception. If there were ever a time to buy low, it’d be now.
  • Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton saw as many targets as Darrius Heyward-Bey (4-5). He still hasn’t been consistent but is the clear long-term answer for Indianapolis. See what’s out there to potentially buy low.
  • Colts linebacker Jerrell Freeman filled up the stat sheet with eight tackles, a sack, a tackle for a loss and a forced fumble. Freeman is quietly one of the more underrated big play linebackers in dynasty circles.
