- Don’t call it a comeback but Giants quarterback Eli Manning looked decent, throwing for 300 yards, four touchdowns and an interception plus a rushing touchdown. He’s still no better than a low-end QB2 but his arrow is point up.
- On the other side of the field, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins threw four picks. Cousins appears to be turnover prone and shouldn’t be counted on for anything yet.
- Giants receiver Victor Cruz had his second 100-yard game in a row and is looking like the WR2 he was before the season. As Eli goes, so goes Victor.
- Breaking out was Giants tight end Larry Donnell with seven catches for 54 yards and three touchdowns. If Donnell keeps this up, he’s a low-end TE1.

Dynasty Recap – Week 17 – Giants beat Redskins, 20-6
- Redskins running back Alfred Morris had 62 yards on 16 carries for a shade under 4.0 YPC. Morris was one of the few bright spots in Washington, most likely finishing in the top five in rushing yards.
- Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon had six catches for 56 yards and will finish in the top ten in receiving yards and over 100 catches. Garcon will be 28 entering 2014 and should be a high-end WR2 in dynasty leagues.
- Giants receiver Jerrel Jernigan had another nice game replacing Victor Cruz in the slot. He caught six catches for 90 yards and a touchdown and added 57 rushing yards and a touchdown. Jernigan figures to be in the Giants plans next year after Hakeem Nicks moves on.
- Giants end Justin Tuck added two more sacks for 11 on the year and is sure to cash in during the off-season. The Giants probably won’t bring back the 30-year old but Tuck is sure to land somewhere else and be a decent DL2 option in dynasty leagues.
Dynasty Recap – Week 16 – Cowboys escape Redskins 24-23
- Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray ran for 96 yards on 22 carries for a 4.4 YPC with three catches for 15 yards. Murray is extremely effective this year with a 5.5 YPC. If the Cowboys do make a coaching move, hopefully the new regime utilize him more.
- Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon had 11 catches for 144 yards and a touchdown. With his age and talent, Garcon is a low-end WR1 heading in to 2014 but is more of a high-end WR2. Washington should also solidify its quarterback situation as well.
- Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter led the team in tackles with 11. Carter’s had an uneven season and is highly questionable to return with many changes expected in the Cowboys defense.
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 – Chiefs destroy Redskins, 45-10
- Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith put together a decent game, going 14 0f 20 for 137 yards, two touchdowns and zero turnovers. Smith certainly isn’t a flashy option but you could do worse for a QB2. Worse like…
- Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III! RG3 went 12 of 26 for 164 yards, a touchdown and an interception. RG3 is having a tough year and complications with coach Mike Shanahan aren’t helping. He might be a buy-low candidate.
- Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles ran wild for 151 yards on 19 carries and a touchdown. He’ll challenge LeSean McCoy as dynasty’s top running back heading in to 2014.
- Redskins receiver Pierre Garçon drew 12 targets and hauled in five of them for 37 yards. Garçon will still be a viable WR2 option for a few years being the top option in Washington, no matter who the quarterback is in 2014.
- Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali had two more sacks, giving him 11 on the year. Hali has quietly put together a solid campaign with 42 tackles, the previously-mentioned 11 sacks, four forced fumbles, an interception and a pass defended on the season. Hali is 30 but with his salary due to come down in 2014, he should be in the Chiefs plans for the foreseeable future.
Dynasty Recap – Week 13 – Giants beat Redskins, 24-17
- Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III had a decent night, going 24 of 32 for 207 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 88 yards. However, these games have been few and far in between. Year three for RG3 will be the real test on just how good he can be.
- Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon led the team in targets (again) with 12, hauling in nine for 61 yards but did lose a fumble. At least Garcon’s play hasn’t suffered along with RG3’s. As long as he’s the top target in Washington, he’ll get his.
- Giants linebacker Jon Beason had 17 tackles along with a tackle for a loss. Since being traded from Carolina, Beason has put together 57 tackles in seven games and played well. However, with a huge raise in store for 2014, Beason will likely be cut and on the move. Beason put together good seasons when healthy and needs to do that again if he’s going to regain his Pro Bowl form.
Dynasty Recap – Week 12 – 49ers trounce Redskins, 27-6
- 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick looked like his old self, albeit against a bad team. Kap went 15 of 24 for 235 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions and added 20 yards rushing. This may be the beginning of the road back to success for Kaepernick as receiver Michael Crabtree is expected back next week.
- Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III just looked bad. He went 17 of 27 for 127 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. He did add 22 yards rushing but until he can start producing again, RG3 isn’t worth a start in dynasty leagues. He could also be a decent buy-low candidate.
- 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks had two more sacks, giving him five in the last three games. Brooks is a strict sack specialist who excels in the 49ers defense thanks to fellow linebackers NaVorro Bowman, Patrick Willis and Aldon Smith garnering all the attention. But Brooks is 30 next year and a good candidate to get cut as his salary doubles. Brooks is a good plug-and-play for 2013 but nothing beyond.
