Running back Charcandrick West had a great day with 110 yards and a touchdown on the ground plus two catches for 109 yards. There’s no doubt who the Chiefs are going with in place of Jamaal Charles. West could have some good value on dynasty benches.
Despite no Jeremy Maclin, Travis Kelce had a very pedestrian day with five catches for 73 yards. Kelce is a TE1 but nowhere near elite status.
One player who did take advantage of no Jeremy Maclin was rookie Chris Conley who had six catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. He’s someone to watch in dynasty leagues even if Maclin returns.
Le’Veon Bell had another solid performance with 121 yards on the ground plus four catches for 16 yards. Him and Todd Gurley could be 1 and 1A in dynasty rankings.
Same goes for Antonio Brown with six catches for 124 yards. Another day at the office.
Linebacker Lawrence Timmons had 10 tackles and a half sack in another LB1 day.
Running back Justin Forsett found his form with 150 yards on the ground. It was against a weak defense but it’s nice to see Forsett be effective. With a lot of tread in his tires, especially for a 29-year old, we still like Forsett as a RB2 in dynasty rankings.
Linebacker Daryl Smith had a big day with 13 tackles and a sack for his best game of the season. He continues to produce at LB1 levels despite his age.
Running back Le’Veon Bell returned in style with 129 rushing yards and a touchdown plus seven catches for 21 yards. If there was ever any doubt about who the top dynasty running back should be, hopefully it evaporated with this game.
Receiver Darrius Hayward-Bey had a solid outing with four catches for 31 yards and a touchdown. He won’t be able to keep that production going when Martavis Bryant returns but could win the job for third receiver.
Linebacker Lawrence Timmons also had an LB1 day with 11 tackles and a sack. He’s up there with Smith as a bona fide LB1 in dynasty IDP leagues.
The Ravens running back situation may be clearing up with Bernard Pierce leading the way with 96 yards on 22 carries. If he can string more of those types of performances together, he’ll be the running back to own in dynasty.
On the other side of the field, Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell looks like a beast. He had 59 yards rushing along with five catches for 48 yards. He’s a legit RB1 in dynasty going forward.
Steelers receiver Antonio Brown continues to be a low-end WR1 in dynasty. He racked up seven catches for 90 yards on 12 targets. Even with the Steelers lose, he’s a winner.
On the IDP side, linebacker Lawrence Timmons won’t go quietly as he racked up 12 tackles. He still plays three downs so he’s still a decent LB2/3 option.
