Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Redskins 23, Eagles 20

Redskins

  • Running back Alfred Morris was still the lead back with 17 carries but Matt Jones had 7 while Chris Thompson had 6. The best dynasty prospect is still Jones just don’t expect a lot of production this year.
  • Receiver Pierre Garçon had another quiet, but solid, outing with seven catches for 55 yards and a touchdown. He’s averaged six catches this season which would put him on pace for almost 100. He could still be a serviceable WR4 in most formats.

Eagles

  • They might not have won but the Eagles got a good performance from quarterback Sam Bradford who went 15 of 28 for 270 yards and three touchdowns. Those are QB1 numbers in any format if Bradford stays in Philadelphia after this season.
  • Jordan Matthews led the team in targets with eight but only caught three of them for 50 yards. It’s possible the hype on Matthews was much more than the reality.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Redskins 24, Rams 10

Redskins

  • It was a coming out party for rookie running back Matt Jones with 123 yards on 19 carries and two touchdowns plus three catches for 23 yards. Good luck keeping him on taxi squads this year as Jones appears to be the clear heir apparent to Alfred Morris next year
  • Tight end Jordan Reed had another solid outing with six catches for 82 yards on six targets. If Reed is healthy, he’ll continue to be a big part of the offense this year and beyond.

Rams

  • It was Tre Mason’s turn as the running back of choice in St. Louis but didn’t do much to impress with only 26 yards on seven carries. For the Rams, they can’t wait for first round pick Todd Gurley to show up here he will be instantly put in the lineup.
  • On the defensive side, linebacker Alec Ogletree racked up 16 tackles. He continues to make big plays and is an ideal LB2 in IDP dynasty leagues.
