- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had three more touchdowns and 255 yards. He’s battling Andrew Luck for QB1 dynasty rankings.
- Packers receiver Randall Cobb continues his up and down season with six catches for 121 yards and a touchdown. We still wouldn’t trust him as a WR1 in dynasty formats but is still a boom-or-bust WR2.
- Panthers tight end Greg Olsen continues his good season, leading the team with eight targets, eight catches for 105 yards.

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Packers trounce Bears, 38-17
- Another day at the office for Aaron Rodgers with 302 yards and four touchdowns on just 22 completions. He’s in the conversation for the top dynasty quarterback.
- Bears running back Matt Forte continues to perform with 122 yards on the ground and five catches for 49 yards. He’s still chugging along but his age is a concern. If you’re in the thick of your league playoffs, keep him. If not, sell now for a ransom.
- Packers receiver Randall Cobb had his best game of the season with seven catches for 113 yards and two touchdowns. It’s a bit of a concern that it took him this long to do this well with his current WR1 ranking. Jordy Nelson is a more reliable option.
- Bears tight end Martellus Bennett continues to impress with nine catches for 134 yards. He’s performed as a mid-TE1 this year and should continue.
Daily Dynasty Update – March 20th
- Colts tight end Dwayne Allen should be 100% and ready to roll for training camp. Allen held a lot of dynasty value after his rookie year but didn’t play a majority of last year with a hip injury. He could be a decent buy-low candidate.
- The Raiders re-signed safety Charles Woodson. Every time you think Woodson is about to bow out, he pulls you back in. Woodson was a top ten defensive back in IDP leagues last year and wouldn’t be a bad option as your DB2.
- The Packers would like to move Randall Cobb off of return duties to allow him to focus on receiving full-time. Still just 23, anything to free up Cobb to be the top target in Green Bay would be welcome.
- Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will shed the knee brace he wore for all of 2013. It should allow him to use his speed again in 2014.
Daily Dynasty Update – January 10th
- Broncos linebacker Von Miller had ACL surgery today and will be recovering for a while. It’s unknown whether he’ll be ready for the start of next season and is another disappointing development for the LB1. He could be a decent buy-low candidate.
- With James Jones future in Green Bay in doubt, receiver Randall Cobb could move out of the slot to the outside. You have to assume that would sap some of his opportunities to make plays but it depends on the other personnel. Cobb is a WR2 only because of the crowded receiving corps in Green Bay.
- Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III got a vote of confidence from new coach Jay Gruden. There goes the Cousins in DC theory.
- Giants running back David Wilson will undergo neck surgery. Hopefully, Wilson can get healthy and back to being a productive running back. Meanwhile, it leaves Andre Brown as the front-runner for the Giants running back job in 2014.
Updated Dynasty Wide Receiver Rankings – December
Be sure to check out the latest dynasty wide receiver rankings here.
- No changes at the top as the top seven stay the same: Calvin Johnson, A.J. Green, Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas, Julio Jones, Brandon Marshall, and Randall Cobb all stay the same.
- The big risers include Josh Gordon (8), Antonio Brown (14), and Alshon Jeffery (22). All had the skill it was just a matter of putting it together. There should be no doubt heading in to 2014.
- The only real drop was Marques Colston (47) which primarily is age. Any receiver in New Orleans is bound to be limited by the in-house competition.
Daily Dynasty Update – December 12th
- Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is back as the starter, dashing the hopes of saavy Josh McCown owners. Currently, they’re about equal in dynasty rankings as neither is guaranteed to come back to Chicago. Cutler has the leg up since he’ll surely sign on as a starter somewhere. McCown could as well for a team drafting a young quarterback in need of a tutor.
- The stars are lining up for Da’Rick Rogers as Colts receiver LaVon Brazill isn’t practicing and is in a walking boot. Rogers will have little competition for targets and should be owned in all dynasty leagues if he’s still available.
- Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin still isn’t over his hip issues and it’s fair to wonder if he’ll even be back this season. Seattle has done well without him and they could keep it going while getting Harvin healthy for 2014. He’ll be on plenty of fantasy radars next year.
- Raiders running back Marcel Reece will be relegated to the backup role with Rashad Jennings returns. Reece was re-signed in 2013 but not to be a featured back.
- Packers receiver Randall Cobb has been cleared to run but don’t expect him back this year. The Packers should focus on getting healthy for 2014.
Dynasty Recap – Week 3 – Bengals scrape by Packers, 34-30
- Cincinnati rookie running back Giovani Bernard continues to get more playing time. He had 10 carries (same as BenJarvis Green-Ellis) and 5.0 YPC with four receptions for 49 yards. He’s the real deal.
- On the other side of the ball, Green Bay running back Johnathan Franklin had 103 yards rushing after taking over for James Starks. This after showing nothing in training camp and the season so far. Maybe this is a sign of things to come and Franklin can finally be the compliment to Eddie Lacy. He’s also in line for major time in years to come should Lacy get banged up.
- The Green Bay passing game continues to be an equal opportunity employer with targets all around to Jordy Nelson (9), Randall Cobb (11), and James Jones (8). James Jones is the only one not signed through next year and would be severely affected if he’s not in the Green Bay lineup.
- Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict racked up 11 more tackles. The 22-year old already has 28 tackles on the year, making him a tackle machine in dynasty leagues. He’s less big play but more solid contributor.
- The young bookends of the defensive line for Cincinnati each racked up a sack. Michael Johnson (1.5) and Carlos Dunlap (1.0) both still under 27 years of age, are solid defensive lineman in dynasty fantasy football. Either one would be a contributor.
