Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Saints escape Bears, 26-18

  • If you were late to theĀ Alshon Jeffery party, don’t bother showing up. He’s not going anywhere in dynasty circles. And at 23, compared to Brandon Marshall’s 29, Jeffery could be the man very soon.
  • Chicago running backĀ Matt Forte has been a top three running back in fantasy this year. If you’re close to a championship. If you’re not, now’s the time to sell high. Forte is 27 and has worn a lot of tread off those tires.
  • Saints rookie safety Kenny Vaccaro had another solid outing subbing in for Roman Harper. He filled up the state sheet with six tackles, one sack, and one pass defended. Vaccarro is a defensive back to watch for years to come with the Saints bend-not-break defense.
  • Chicago veteran linebacker Lance Briggs had another stellar outing with 14 tackles, a sack, and three tackles for a loss. As mentioned in our recent PFF article, now may be the time to sell high on Briggs. The 32-year old is only under contract through 2014 and, depending on how Chicago finishes this year, big changes could be in store.
