Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Giants beat Falcons 30-20

  • Giants quarterback Eli Manning continues to become more efficient with 200 yards and two touchdowns. With new personnel, it’s possible Manning regains his QB2 look but we’ll wait and see.
  • Falcons receiver Julio Jones continues to show why he’s a top end WR in dynasty with 11 catches for 105 yards on 16 targets. He can’t be stopped.
  • Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham had a solid debut with four catches for 44 yards and a touchdown. It’s a promising debut albeit against a bad defense.
  • Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow continues to rack up the tackles with 14. He’s averaging 12 tackles a game while the defense continues to struggle.

Dynasty Recap – Week 2 – Bengals beat up Falcons, 24-10

  • Bengals running back Gio Bernard went off for 169 total yards and a touchdown. He’s a legit top five dynasty option going forward.
  • Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan came back down to earth with 231 yards, one touchdown but three interceptions. It further proves that Ryan is effective against sub-par defenses but can’t overcome a good one. Personally, he’s barely in the QB1 conversation for dynasty.
  • Meanwhile, Falcons receiver Julio Jones has seven catches for 88 yards and a touchdown. Not the best day but still a solid outing despite a poor team offensive performance.
  • On the IDP side, Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow continues to rack up the tackles with 14. In tackle-heavy leagues, Worrilow is a LB1.

Dynasty Recap – Week 1 – Falcons beat Saints in shootout, 37-34

  • Matt Ryan had a big day back with 448 yards and three touchdowns against a decent Saints defense. More days like that and he’ll be back in the QB1 tier in dynasty leagues.
  • Saints running back Mark Ingram had a good day with 13 carries for 60 yards and two touchdowns.
  • Elite receiver Julio Jones had seven catches for 116 yards. He’s in the top-tier of dynasty receivers.
  • On the other side of the field, rookie Brandin Cooks had seven catches for 77 yards and a touchdown. He could reach WR2 status before the end of the year.
  • Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow continues to rake with 15 tackles. He’s going to continue to flirt with LB1 status with double-digit tackle days like this.

Dynasty Recap – Week 17 – Panthers edge Falcons, 21-20

  • Panthers tight end Greg Olsen ended the year with six catches for 42 yards and a touchdown. Olsen has quietly been a TE1 all year as Cam Newton’s favorite target. He will be again no matter who the Panthers bring in.
  • Falcons receiver Roddy White showed vintage form again with eight catches for 91 yards and a touchdown. There’s a lot to be excited about with the Falcons offense heading in to 2014. All of them are buy-low candidates.
  • Panthers end Greg Hardy had an incredible four sacks to bring his season total to 15. He’ll be 26 heading in to 2014 and is a legit DL1 in dynasty leagues.
  • Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow capped his impressive rookie half-season with 13 tackles and a sack. Worrilow had over 100 tackles in barely a half season as a starter and the future is bright.

Dynasty Recap – Week 15 – Falcons slip by Redskins, 27-26

  • Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins had a good fantasy game going 29 of 45 for 381 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. He’s certainly going to make it interesting in Washington in the off-season.
  • Redskins running back Alfred Morris bounced back with 98 yards rushing on 18 carries. He now has over 1,000 yards with a fantastic 4.7 YPC. Morris has been one of the few bright spots in Washington this season.
  • Redskins receiver Pierre Garçon hauled in seven catches for 129 yards on 10 targets. Another bright spot for Washington, Garçon should be a WR2 heading in to 2014, no matter who the quarterback is next year.
  • Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow has nine more tackles to give him 100 on the year. It’s an incredible feat since Worrilow has only started the last seven games. He’ll be a high-end LB2 next year.

Dynasty Recap – Week 14 – Packers edge Falcons, 22-21

  • Falcons receiver Roddy White had his second straight positive performance with eight catches for 74 yards on 10 targets. With stories of White and the Falcons revising his deal to ensure he comes back, he’ll still be a decent WR3 for a few years.
  • Packers tight end Andrew Quarless had his best receiving day as a pro with six catches for 66 yards. Don’t expect anything more than that as Quarless is a free agent and athletically gifted Brandon Bostick is waiting in the wings.
  • Falcons rookie linebacker Paul Worrilow continued his impressive season with 12 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a tackles for a loss and a pass defended. By all accounts, Worrilow is the real deal who needs to be owned in dynasty leagues in 2014 and beyond.

Dynasty Recap – Week 13 – Falcons escape Bills, 34-31

  • Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had a solid say, going 28 of 47 for 311 yards and a touchdown. Ryan has still had a decent season despite the Falcons record. He’ll be primed for a comeback season in 2014.
  • Bills running back C.J. Spiller carried the ball 15 times for 149 yards and a touchdown. Hopefully Spiller’s injury woes are behind him and with Fred Jackson being one year older next year, maybe it’ll be time for Spiller to carry the full load.
  • Even with Falcons receiver Roddy White‘s breakout game of 10 catches for 143 yards, I’m more encouraged by fellow receiver Harry Douglas. He led the team with 15 targets and hauled in six of them for 73 yards. It’ll be very interesting to see what Atlanta does at receiver next year but Douglas has some potential.
  • Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow led the team in tackles and now has 89 on the year. It’s an incredible number when you consider he had 17 through the first seven games of the season. Undrafted out of Delaware, Worrilow looks like a keeper.
