Daily Dynasty Update – May 7th

Updated Dynasty DB Rankings – February 2014

Click here for updated dynasty DB rankings. 

  • Top of the list remains the same with Packers safety Morgan Burnett and Vikings safety Harrison Smith claiming the top two spots.
  • The big risers include Cowboys safety Barry Church making an appearance in the top 10. Rams safety T.J. McDonald should also see more action in his second year.
  • The big drops include Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor for no other reason other than there’s just a ton of talent around him. Lions safety Glover Quin also drops. Quin has never had a 100-plus tackle season and the Lions big area of need is their secondary. Steer clear.

Dynasty Recap – Super Bowl 48 – Seattle thrashes Denver, 43-8

  • Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was his usual efficient self, completing 72% of his passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns. He also added 26 yards rushing. Wilson performed admirably and is an ideal QB2 in dynasty leagues. A healthy Percy Harvin is just a bonus heading in to 2014.
  • Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas set a Super Bowl record with 13 catches and added 118 yards and a touchdown. Thomas is firmly in the top-tier of dynasty receivers as long as Peyton Manning is around.
  • Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor had a big game with 10 tackles and two passes defended. Chancellor could have made a claim for game MVP but being the best player on a great defense will do. He’s a DB1 heading in to 2014.

Dynasty Recap – NFC Championship – Seahawks escape 49ers, 23-17

  • 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick showed the good, the bad, and the ugly with 153 yards passing, one touchdown, two interceptions, 130 yards rushing and a fumble. Filled the stat sheet quite a bit but left fantasy folks more frustrated than ever before. Right now, it’s hard to give Kaepernick a QB1 grade until he can string good performances together.
  • Meanwhile, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had another day at the office, going 16 of 25 for 215 yards and a touchdown. If Kaepernick is the hare, Wilson is the tortoise.
  • Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch ran wild (again) with 109 yards on 22 carries. Lynch will be in his age-28 season next year when, typically, running backs start breaking down. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to start fielding offers for Lynch in your dynasty leagues and sell high.
  • 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman was on his way to a spectacular game, finishing with 14 tackles and a sack before destroying his knee. The injury looked gruesome and is sure to effect his status heading in to next season. Here’s hoping the recovery goes well.
  • Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor had a great game with 11 tackles and two passes defended. He’ll be a solid DB1 heading in to next dynasty season and could make a claim for top DB overall.

Dynasty Recap – Divisional Playoffs – Seahawks beat Saints, 23-15

  • Saints quarterback Drew Brees wasn’t quite as efficient as he usually is during the regular season. Brees went 24 of 43 for 309 yards and one touchdown. The low completion percentage further enhances the perception that Brees isn’t a fantasy stud outside a domed environment. Luckily, he has at least nine games a year in a dome between his eight home games and a road game at Atlanta. He’s still a top three dynasty quarterback for the foreseeable future.
  • Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch ran wild, going off for 140 yards and two touchdowns. Lynch is signed for at least two more years in Seattle and should be a RB1 in that timeframe. 
  • Saints receiver Marques Colston had a big day with 11 catches for 144 yards and a touchdown. Colston will never be a sexy pick, and certainly shouldn’t be relied on as your WR1 or even WR2. But as the second option in the pass-heavy Saints offense, you could do much worse as your WR3.
  • The Seahawks safety duo of Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas had a combined 25 tackles and four passes defended. Both are DB1’s heading in to 2014 dynasty seasons.

Dynasty Recap – Week 16 – Cardinals shock Seahawks,

  • The Cardinals running attached was more of the same. Incumbent Rashard Mendenhall ran for 63 yards on 21 carries for a 3 YPC. Meanwhile, Andre Ellington went for 64 yards on 15 carries and a 4.3 YPC. Ellington dynasty owners pray that Mendenhall won’t be back.
  • Seattle safety Kam Chancellor had 11 tackles and an interception. He’s been outshone by fellow safety Earl Thomas all year but today was vintage Chancellor. Him and Thomas are fairly interchangeable as far as Seattle safeties.
  • Arizona defensive end Calais Campbell had two more sacks on the day, giving him eight on the year. Campbell is a highly effective dynasty DL as his stat sheet is pretty diverse. He has 53 tackles on the year along with six passes defended.
