Dynasty Recap – Week 10 – Saints dominate Cowboys, 49-17

  • The Saints ran all over the Cowboys with continual fantasy disappointment Mark Ingram thrashing them for 145 yards on just 14 carries. Pierre Thomas  added 87 yards on 17 carries. Don’t get too excited, however, as the Cowboys have one of the worst defenses in the league. Sell high on either one if you can.
  • The passing game also did damage but that was no surprise. Quarterback Drew Brees distributed the ball fairly evenly with Marques Colston leading the way in targets, catches and yards. It’s still a week-to-week guess who Brees’ favorite is with the exception of tight end Jimmy Graham. There just isn’t a receiver in New Orleans reliable enough to count on.
  • Cowboys safety Barry Church had 14 more tackles to give him 80 on the year putting him on pace for 128. Of course, with the Cowboys pass defense so abysmal, it’s not hard to envision any safety on the Dallas defense having a lot of tackles. It will remain to be seen if Church will still be around after the inevitable shake-up coming n the off-season.
  • Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter had a good day with 12 tackles, giving him 60 for the year. He’s now on pace for 100 tackles but, like Church, it remains to be seen if he’ll be around in Dallas in 2014.

Dynasty Recap – Week 8 – Saints down Bills, 35-17

  • Saints quarterback Drew Brees was downright surgical with five touchdowns and nearly 10 YPA. Even at his age, Brees is a top three option in dynasty circles. You just can’t ignore that level of consistency.
  • Brees’ teammate Pierre Thomas had an efficient day with 65 rushing yards on 14 carries and add three catches for 29 yards. He’s got one more year on a team-friendly contract and with Mark Ingram seemingly on his way out, Thomas should have value for at least the next year and a half.
  • Bills tight end Scott Chandler had, by far, his best game of the year with seven catches for 72 yards. Don’t be fooled though as this is not the sign Chandler owners were looking for. A free agent after this year, the Bills will be on the lookout for an upgrade.
  • Saints rookie receiver Kenny Stills had three catches for 129 yards and a long touchdown. But this is par for the course for any Saints receiver. Stills is a boom-or-bust receiver as long as he’s in New Orleans.

Daily Dynasty Update – August 7th

Let’s get it on.

  • Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman are still splitting carries with the first team in Denver.  I still don’t buy the Montee Ball hype – he’s in a RBBC and his coach is notorious for using multiple backs.
  • Mark Ingram is looking good in New Orleans. He’s done nothing in his career to unseat Pierre Thomas but maybe this is the year.
  • Another breakout candidate is Michael Floyd from Arizona. He is officially the #2 receiver in the desert. With an upgrade at quarterback, the chances will be there.
  • Mychal Kendricks is poised to be a big part of the defense in Philadelphia this season. The second-year linebacker should be going at the quarterback more which is good for sacks. Kendricks is currently 18th in dynasty linebacker ranks.
  • A.J. Jenkins (finally) had a good day in camp for San Francisco. There isn’t much competition at receiver in San Francisco so the door is open.
  • Justin Blackmon is still hurt and probably won’t play on Friday for Jacksonville. So much talent, so little production.
  • Bryce Brown may fumble the #2 spot behind LeSean McCoy in Philadelphia. He dropped three passes today and the knock is his hesitancy to run between the tackles.

Remember, if you’re able to see this, it’s the best day ever.
