Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Rams escape 49ers, 13-10

  • 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin had a good day with 93 yards on six catches and a touchdown. Boldin continues to be the top target in San Francisco and should be considered a WR3 in dynasty formats.
  • Rams defensive end Robert Quinn had another big day with two more sacks and has five in three games. He’s back to DL1 status.
  • 49ers linebacker Chris Borland, filling in for Patrick Willis, had a game-high 18 tackles. He should be picked up as a dynasty LB in the event of another injury.
  • 49ers safety Antoine Bethea continues to put up DB1 numbers with six tackles, two passes defended and an interception. He’s a good player on a good defense and should continue to be a DB1 in all formats.

Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Rams stun Seahawks 28-26

  • Even in defeat, Russell Wilson put on a show with 313 yards and two touchdowns to go along with 106 yards rushing and another touchdown. Those are high-end QB1 numbers.
  • Rams rookie running back Tre Mason appears to have taken over the top job with 85 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown. With the win, Mason could keep the job for good and be a reliable RB2.
  • Rams defensive end Robert Quinn finally notched a sack along with four tackles. He hasn’t played like a DL1 this season but should still be considered one in dynasty formats.

Dynasty Impact – St. Louis Rams select Aaron Donald, DT

donaldDynasty Impact: Donald creates a fearsome defensive line with Robert Quinn and Chris Long. Averaged almost 10 sacks per game playing the interior and has the capability to do the same in the NFL. Perhaps has more benefit for Long and Quinn as more attention given to the inside means less on the outside. Quinn should continue his dominance while Long could see a resurgence. In real life, the Rams have the makings of a great defense.

Dynasty Recap – Week 17 – Seahawks thrash Rams, 27-9

  • Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson went 15 of 23 for 172 yards and a touchdown. He’s not flashy but he’s consistent and would be an ideal QB2 in 2014.
  • Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had a decent day with 97 yards on 23 carries. Lynch finishes the year with over 1,200 yards and will be a low-end RB1 in dynasty leagues in 2014.
  • Seahawks receiver Golden Tate had a nice sendoff with eight catches for 129 yards and a touchdown. The pending  free agent will be just 26 next year and could land in a more pass-happy offense. If so, his stock will rise.
  • Rams defensive end had another sack, giving him 19 for the year and solidifying his place at the top of the defensive lineman rankings in IDP dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 16 – Rams beat Buccaneers, 23-13

  • The Rams pounded the ball with Zac Stacy, giving him the ball 33 times for 104 yards, and a touchdown. Stacy will be an intriguing RB2 dynasty prospect heading in to 2014 and the Rams have shown they’re committed.
  • Rams rookie receiver Stedman Bailey led the team in targets and catches with three out of five targets for 44 yards. He also had a 27 yard touchdown run. It wasn’t much but Bailey should be monitored in dynasty circles.
  • Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson had five catches for 98 yards. Jackson is at 1,000 yards again with a 15+ YPC. Should Tampa draft a quarterback in the draft, Jackson’s stock will improve.
  • Rams lineman Robert Quinn led the defense with three more sacks. He now has a league-leading 18 on the year and is establishing himself as  the top-rated lineman in dynasty leagues.
  • Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David had 11 more tackles, giving him 137 for the year. He also added a fumble recovery. David is solidifying himself as a Tier 1 LB in dynasty heading in to 2014.

Dynasty Recap – Week 15 – Rams upset Saints, 27-16

  • Even in a loss, Saints quarterback Drew Brees still has good fantasy games going 39 of 56 for 393 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. Brees will be a top five quarterback option in dynasty leagues for the foreseeable future.
  • Rams rookie running back Zac Stacy ran wild, taking 28 carries for 133 yards and a touchdown. Stacy is an exciting, young player and should be considered a high-end RB2 heading in to 2014.
  • Rams defensive end Robert Quinn continues his stellar season with two more sacks and a fumble recovery. That’s now 15 sacks on the season to lead the NFC. Quinn will be just 24 heading in to 2014 making him a DL1 in dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Fantasy Football – Week 12 – Rams beat up on Bears,

  • Bears running back Matt Forte had another good outing with 77 yards rushing and seven catches for 40 yards. He also escaped what looked like could be a serious injury.
  • The Rams running attacked looked impressive as well. Rookie Zac Stacy ran well again, taking 12 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown. After getting concussed, Benny Cunningham tacked on 109 yards on 13 carries and a touchdown. You’re looking at the Rams running back rotation for 2014.
  • Bears receiver Brandon Marshall had a great day with 10 catches for 117 yards and a touchdown. Marshall is closing in on another 1,000 yard, 10 touchdown campaign.
  • Rams rookie linebacker Alec Ogletree had a team-high 11 tackles with a pass defended. It was a nice bounce back game for Ogletree whose production tapered off in recent weeks.
  • Rams defensive lineman Robert Quinn was a force with four tackles, a sack, a pass defended and a forced fumble then recovery then touchdown. Quinn is a legit DL1 in all formats.
