Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Broncos 31, Chiefs 24


  • He may not be the same old Peyton Manning but he’s still pretty good. On 45 pass attempts, he had just 256 yards but made that up with three touchdowns.
  • Meanwhile, his receivers aren’t going anywhere either with Demaryius Thomas catching eight balls for 116 yards and Emmanuel Sanders catching eight for 87 yards and two touchdowns. Thomas should still be considered a low-end WR1 for dynasty purposes but ring as much fantasy value as you can out of Sanders.
  • The running game is not performing as everyone thought they might with just 61 yards between Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson. As long as the Broncos keep winning, it’s doubtful they switch to the run.


  • Not much to get excited about except for Jamaal Charles. He ran for 125 yards and a touchdown but did have two costly fumbles. Regardless, Charles is still a RB1 in dynasty circles thanks to his rock-solid status as the starter.
  • Receiver Jeremy Maclin had just four catches for 57 yards on seven targets. Unfortunately, that may be the typical stat line for Maclin in Kansas City.
  • In IDP land, linebacker Justin Houston had two more sacks because THAT IS ALL JUSTIN HOUSTON DOES. He’s a top linebacker in IDP leagues, especially in big-play leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Chiefs Jets, 24-10

  • Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith had a decent day with 199 yards passing and two touchdowns. Smith will never be better than a low-end QB2.
  • Jets receiver Percy Harvin had a big day with 11 catches for 129 yards on 13 targets. If this was indicative of things to come, Harvin could finally break out unlike anytime when he was in Seattle.
  • The other Jets receiver, Eric Decker had nine catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. Decker has quietly had a solid season and should benefit from a new quarterback in New York next year.
  • Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston had two more sacks to add to his league-leading total and is on pace to break the all-time record. He continues to be a LB2 with LB1 upside.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – 49ers upend Chiefs, 22-17

  • 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had a pedestrian day with 201 yards passing and a touchdown plus only 18 yards rushing. Kap is no more than a  high-end QB2 at this point.
  • Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles continues to come back from injury with only 80 yards rushing. To be fair, he was playing a good defense and should be closer to his output from last year as the season wears on.
  • Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston got another sack, bringing up his total to six for the season. Houston is a LB1 in big-play leagues

Dynasty Recap – Wild Card – Colts stun Chiefs, 45-44

  • Both quarterbacks went off as Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith went 30 of 46 for 378 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. This game, and season, bought him at least one more year as the Kansas City starter.
  • Meanwhile, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck went 29 of 45 for for 443 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions. Admittedly, most of it was in garbage time and against the Chiefs second stringers, but it’s what Luck dynasty owners like to see.
  • The real star yesterday was Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton who had 13 catches for 224 yards and two touchdowns. It remains to see what his role will be next year but there’s no denying his talent. He’s a strong dynasty prospect heading in to 2014.
  • Meanwhile, Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe had his best game all year with eight catches for 150 yards and a touchdown. Don’t be fooled though as Kansas City is still a run-first offense and Bowe will only be a year older next year.
  • Kansas City linebacker Justin Houston had a sack in his return from injury. Houston is a big-play linebacker with low tackle numbers but potentially big sack numbers.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Chiefs stay unbeaten over Titans 26-17

  • Running back Jamaal Charles continues to be the best running back in all of fantasy football. He even drew the most targets from noodle-arm Alex Smith. If he ever becomes available in your league, it doesn’t hurt to make an attempt at nabbing him.
  • Meanwhile, Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe continues to go to waste beyond as he heads down field. He’s not a viable option in any type of league.
  • With a complete lack of running game in Tennessee, look for the Titans receivers to get more looks. So far, it appears Kendall Wright will be the lead dog as he drew eight targets to go with six catches and 74 yards.
  • Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston had another sack to bring his season total to 8.5. He continues to be an IDP stud, especially in big play leagues.

Week 3 Dynasty Recap – Chiefs over Eagles 26-16

  • The studs did what they were supposed to do. LeSean McCoy had 150 yards rushing for Philadelphia, solidifying himself as one of the few workhorse backs left in the league.
  • Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles had 170 total yards to go along with seven catches. As long as Alex Smith is the Chiefs quarterback, expect a lot of check downs to Charles.
  • In a battle of young, catch-first tight ends, Travis Kelce (injured) of Kansas City and Zach Ertz of Philadelphia (one reception) continued to disappoint. Would be a good time to buy-low on either.
  • Mychal Kendricks continues to be a tackle machine, racking up nine. Still just 22, Kendricks could be your lead tackle linebacker for a long time.
  • Kansas City linebacker Justin Houston had a monster game with 4.5 sacks. Houston, 24, isn’t exactly new on the scene as he had 10 sacks last year.
