Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Seahawks 20, 49ers 3

Seahawks

  • Russell Wilson had a very pedestrian 235 yards plus a touchdown and two interceptions. He added 20 yards on the ground. It’s been a down year for Wilson but all the means for dynasty purposes is he’s in the large group of QB1’s in dynasty rankings instead of making the leap to elite status.
  • Running back Marshawn Lynch got back on track with 122 yards and a touchdown. It was his best game all season and confirms his RB1 status.
  • Receiver Tyler Lockett had a breakout game with five catches for 79 yards and a touchdown. He’s already made plays in the return game but more games like this on offense makes Lockett an intriguing dynasty prospect.

49ers

  • Colin Kaepernick looked bad. He threw for 124 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and no rushing yards. He’s not even a QB2 at this point.
  • Running back Carlos Hyde ran for 40 yards on 11 carries. Hyde may be the only good offensive dynasty piece on the entire team.
  • Linebacker Michael Wilhoite had another double-digit tackle game. He now has 63 on the year and is on his way to 150+.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Rams 34, Seahawks 31 (OT)

Rams 

  • Quarterback Nick Foles had a decent day, completing 18 of 27 for 297 yards and a touchdown against the Kam Chancellor-less Seattle defense. It’s not time to bump up Foles in dynasty rankings but it’s a good start.
  • Foles leading receiver was tight end Jared Cook who caught five for 85 yards. Cook showed promise in last year’s opener too so we won’t get too excited. If he puts together another month of this though, things could change.
  • It was a coming out party for defensive tackle Aaron Donald and his nine tackle, two-sack day. He’s a solid DL2 but even higher if you play in a DT-special league.

Seahawks

  • Russell Wilson did not have a decent day, going 32 of 41 for only 251 yards and a touchdown and an interception. It’s early so it’s not time to move Wilson down dynasty rankings.
  • Running back Marshawn Lynch had a good day when he got the ball. Operating on only 18 carries, Lynch rushed for 73 yards but did add five catches for 31 yards. Seattle should go back to pounding the ball with Lynch next week. He’s still a RB1.
  • New addition Jimmy Graham had a decent day with six catches for 51 yards and a touchdown. A solid effort from a tight end but not worthy of being the second highest dynasty tight end. I’m going to start marking him down.

Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Seahawks squeak by Raiders, 30-24

  • Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was the star of this one with 67 yards rushing and two touchdowns plus five catches for 76 yards. It was back to RB1 status for Lynch where he should continue to be this year. Past this year is up for debate.
  • Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera had a big game with eight catches for 38 yards and two touchdowns. This was after a seven catch and 83 yards game. These are TE1 numbers if he can keep it up.
  • Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright had a game-high 13 tackles to go along with a pass defended. He’s filling in admirably for Bobby Wagner and should be a LB1 for the time being.

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.

Daily Dynasty Update – June 12th

  • michaelGet ready for the Christine Michael bandwagon to get crowded with Marshawn Lynch expected to skip a mandatory training camp. The Seahawks were expected to siphon off carries from Lynch anyway but this might expedite that thinking.
  • Expect the Terrance West bandwagon to get that way too with West getting first-team reps in Browns camp. Recently signed Ben Tate is not likely to hold up a full 16 games so his immediate back up will be a hot commodity. West reminds some of Alfred Morris where he’s great at running and cut backs but not much else.
  • Bad news for Sean Weatherspoon as he ruptured his Achilles and will miss the entire season. It’s a big blow for Weatherspoon dynasty owners as he was expected to fully recovery from injury issues he sustained last year.
