Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Eagles beat Texans, 31-21

  • Eagles running back LeSean McCoy finally broke out with 117 rushing yards. McCoy should get better as the year wears on with a healthier offensive line.
  • Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins had another big day with six catches for 115 yards and a touchdown. If Hopkins keeps playing like this, he’ll be considered a WR2.
  • Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin had another big game with six catches for 158 yards and two touchdowns with just as much damage done with Mark Sanchez at quarterback than Nick Foles.
  • Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks had 12 tackles and a sack and continues to be a LB1.

Daily Dynasty Update – April 30th

Updated Dynasty Linebacker Rankings – January 2014

Click here for the latest dynasty linebacker rankings. 

  • The top of the rankings stay mostly the same with Luke Kuechly, NaVorro Bowman, and Lavonte David making up the top three. Bowman’s status will be closely monitored after destroying his knee in the NFC Championship game.
  • The big risers this month include the Eagles Mychal Kendricks, Buffalo’s Kiko Alonso and the Bengals Vontaze Burfict. All are coming off strong seasons and will enter 2014 under the age of 24. They will be heading in to the top ten soon.
  • Drops this month include the 49ers Patrick Willis (age/injury) and the Cowboys Bruce Carter (pass protection) and Tampa’s Mason Foster (new scheme). These are guys you should look at trading to see what you get.

Dynasty Recap – Week 16 – Eagles blow out Bears, 54-11

  • Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was extremely efficient, going 21 of 25 for 230 yards and two touchdowns. He’s looking like a QB1 in dynasty leagues heading in to 2014.
  • Eagles running back LeSean McCoy ran wild with 133 yards on just 18 carries and two touchdowns. He also added six catches for 29 yards. It’s been a race all year for fantasy MVP between McCoy and Jamaal Charles. Both are at the top of the dynasty charts.
  • The game got so out of hand the Eagles backup running back Bryce Brown had 115 yards on just nine carries. Just this week we covered Brown’s disappointing year but this game may restore faith in his dynasty prospects.
  • Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks was an animal with five tackles and two sacks. He now has 94 tackles and four sacks on the year. Kendricks is just 23 and should be a consistent dynasty produce for many years to come.

Dynasty Recap – Week 15 – Vikings upset Eagles, 48-30

  • Eagles quarterback Nick Foles had another great game, going 30 of 48 for 428 yards and three touchdowns with one interception. There’s no doubt who will be the starter in Philadelphia next year and it might mean Foles is a QB1 in dynasty leagues.
  • The main beneficiary of Foles’ production was DeSean Jackson, catching 10 for 195 yards and a touchdown. With Foles at quarterback for most of the season, Jackson is on pace to set a career-high in yards and already has in catches. He’ll be an intriguing WR2 prospect in dynasty heading in to 2014.
  • Vikings receiver Greg Jennings had his best game as a Viking with 163 yards on 11 catches and a touchdown. Jennings is rapidly getting older but should get an upgrade at quarterback next year. He’ll be nothing more than a WR4 in 2014 and will be worse after that.
  • Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks filled the stat sheet with eight tackles, a sack, and an interception. At just 23, he’s a legit LB1 in dynasty circles.

Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Eagles obliterate Raiders, 49-20

  • Eagles quarterback Nick Foles did some very good things, throwing for seven touchdowns and 406 yards on just 28 pass attempts for a ridiculous 14.5 YPA. While it would be nice to keep that pace up, fantasy owners should be happy to have half that. But with more play like that, Foles should lock up the job for 2014 and beyond. Stay tuned.
  • In a hopeful sign, Eagles rookie tight end Zach Ertz tied for the team lead with six targets and hauled in five catches for 42 yards and a touchdown. Let’s hope this is the kickstart of Ertz’s promising career.
  • Raiders backup running back Rashad Jennings had a big day with 102 yards rushing on 15 carries and seven catches for 74 yards. Jennings should be a fine addition for the rest of 2013 but shouldn’t be considered for next year unless the Raiders foolishly continue on with Darren McFadden.
  • Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks had a productive day with 10 tackles and a sack. It’s the second game in a row with double-digit tackles.

Dynasty Recap – Week 8 – Giants slip by Eagles, 15-7

  • Eagles rookie quarterback Matt Barkley was forced into action after a re-aggravation of Mike Vick’s hamstring issue. Barkley did go 17/26 for 158 yards but had one interception and one lost fumble. Turnovers are the quickest way to get the hook so Barkley will have to cut that out. It certainly didn’t look like he was someone to monitor in dynasty leagues.
  • Giants receiver Victor Cruz had seven catches for 86 yards on 10 targets despite sitting out a portion of the game due to injury. Cruz is about the most reliable fantasy dynasty player on the Giants.
  • Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks had his biggest tackle game of the year with 12. Kendricks was a bit of a sleeper heading into this year but hasn’t lit it up as expected. Maybe this is the start of something.
