- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was his usual efficient self with 264 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. Him and Andrew Luck are the top-tier quarterbacks to own in dynasty.
- Packers receiver Jordy Nelson was also his usual self with nine catches for 107 yards and a touchdown. He’s a WR1 in all dynasty formats.
- On the other side of the field, Dolphins rookie receiver Jarvis Landry broke out with six catches and 75 yards plus a touchdown on eight targets. He could be the WR2 in Miami soon and have some value.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Packers come back against Jets, 31-24
- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was in top form with 346 yards and three touchdowns. Thanks to his production and age (unlike Drew Brees and Peyton Manning), he’s the consensus QB1 in dynasty formats.
- The primary beneficiary was receiver Jordy Nelson at nine catches for 209 yards on a staggering 16 targets. Thanks to his extension, Nelson is a consensus WR1 in all dynasty formats.
- Meanwhile, Jets receiver Eric Decker was having a nice day with four catches, 63 yards and a touchdown before getting injured. Decker is proving he can be a reliable WR2/3 in dynasty formats even with questionable quarterback play.
- Packers safety Morgan Burnett had another great day with 11 tackles and a pass defended. He’s a legit DB1 in all dynasty formats.
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 17 – Packers squeak by Bears, 33-28
- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers returned and looked to be in mid-season form with 318 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. He’ll be the top dynasty quarterback heading in to 2014.
- Bears running back Matt Forte finished his season with 110 yards on 22 carries with two touchdowns along with four receptions for 47 yards and three total touchdowns. Behind LeSean McCoy and Jamaal Charles, there was no better running back in fantasy.
- Packers receiver Jordy Nelson loved his quarterback back with 10 catches for 161 yards on 16 targets. Nelson is a legit WR2 with Aaron Rodgers in the lineup.
Dynasty Recap – Week 8 – Packers beat Vikings, 44-31
- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was downright surgical, going 24/29 for 285 yards and a 10 YPA with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He’s easily the #1 ranked dynasty quarterback.
- Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy had 94 yards but it took him 29 carries to get there. This will probably be the norm for Lacy – lots of carries as the Packers sit on a lead. The opportunity will be there for many years for Lacy.
- Packers receiver Jordy Nelson had seven catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns. Normally a top-20 option when all Packer receivers are healthy, Nelson is a top-10 option when he’s the first option.
- Meanwhile, a bright spot for Minnesota continues to be middle linebacker Erin Henderson who had 14 tackles and two tackles for a loss. Henderson is on pace for over 150 tackles and, at just 27, should be a LB1/2 in dynasty leagues for at least the foreseeable future.
Dynasty Recap – Week 6 – Packers escape Ravens, 19-17
- Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy racked up 120 yards on 23 carries for a 5.2 YPC. Lacy continues to show he’s the real deal and a great compliment to the Packers passing game.
- The Ravens have gone back to not getting Ray Rice the ball as he only had 14 carries to go along with three catches. As long as Jim Caldwell is the offensive coordinator in Baltimore, expect Ray Rice’s usage to fluctuate.
- Meanwhile, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had an unusually efficient day with 342 yards and two touchdowns on 20/34 passing. Don’t expect that kind of play consistently as the Packers, on average, give up 288 yards passing a game. Flacco is still a fantasy dynasty backup at best.
- With Packers receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones going out early due to injury, Jordy Nelson ended up with the most targets at 10. Expect that to continue if either Jones and/or Cobb miss any amount of time.
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.
