Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – Falcons escape Panthers, 19-17

  • Panthers receiver Kelvin  Benjamin had another big game with nine catches for 109 yards and a touchdown and should be a WR1 in dynasty going forward.
  • Falcons receiver Roddy White continues to put off age with eight catches for 75 yards and a touchdown. White is still a solid WR3 option in dynasty despite his age.
  • Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly had another big day with 11 tackles and two passes defended. Even in a lost season, Kuechly continues to be the top LB in dynasty leagues.

Dynasty Recap – Week 7 – Ravens rout Falcons, 29-7

  • Ravens running back Justin Forsett continues to get the work, piling up 95 yards on the ground. He out touched Bernard Pierce 25-8 and continues to be a RB2 this year. I can’t imagine Forsett going anywhere next year and could be a value.
  • Falcons receiver Roddy White had a throwback game with nine catches for 100 yards and a touchdown. We’d still move on from him in dynasty formats.
  • Falcons linebacker Joplo Bartu led the way with 15 tackles. But with so much uncertainty between him and rookie Prince Shembo, it’s a situation to avoid.
  • Ravens linebacker Daryl Smith had a good day with 13 tackles and a pass defended. Smith continues to play at LB1 level and should be considered that in dynasty formats.

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 16 – 49ers outlast Falcons, 34-24

  • 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick went 13 of 21 for 197 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 51 yards and another score. Kaepernick and Russell Wilson are in similar situations wherein their value is capped by the talent around them. Should the 49ers dramatically improve their receiving corps, watch out.
  • Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had a nice night, going 37 of 48 for 348 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. Ryan is a big bounce back dynasty player for 2014 with Julio Jones coming back.
  • 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree showed what the 49ers what they were missing after catching five balls for 102 yards. Crabtree is one of those prospects that might actually improve in value with another top-notch receiver playing opposite him in San Francisco.
  • Falcons receiver Roddy White had a vintage night with 12 catches for 141 yards and a touchdown. White will be 33 next year but, if healthy, is just as dominant as he always was.
  • 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman had 11 tackles plus an interception returned for a touchdown. Bowman has filled the stat sheet all year and has a case for fantasy IDP MVP. He’ll be a top-ranked LB1 heading in to 2014.

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.

Dynasty Recap – Week 9 – Panthers down Falcons,

  • With the return of Jonathan Stewart, the Panthers running game is back to being a hot mess. They ran the ball 33 times but the leading rusher only had 13 carries. It’s really a situation to avoid unless any personnel changes occur.
  • Atlanta receiver Harry Douglas had another good day with three receptions for 82 yards. Keep an eye on Douglas as a dynasty prospect. Roddy White will be 33 next year and carry a $5 million cap number. If Atlanta is going to address its defense, White may be a cap casualty.
  • Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly had eight tackles, a pass defended and an interception. Hopefully, Kuechly can keep the production up to warrant his high dynasty grade.

Dynasty Recap – Week 8 – Cardinals down Falcons, 27-13

  • The Cardinals finally allowed Andre Ellington to start and he didn’t disappoint. Ellington had 154 yards on 15 carries and a long touchdown. He added two catches for eight yards. However, the Cardinals still don’t want to give Ellington more than the 12-15 carries he’s been getting since Stepfan Taylor had just as many carries but a 2.7 YPC. There’s no logical reason to not hand the keys over to Ellington but it is what it is.
  • Falcons receiver Harry Douglas, filling in for Roddy White and Julio Jones, had 12 catches on 18 targets for 121 yards. Douglas will make a fine option for the rest of 2013 but is already 29 and, unless he goes elsewhere, probably won’t be a dynasty factor.
  • Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington had six tackles but added three passes defended and an interception. Washington has been as good as advertised and filled up the stat sheet for the Cardinals.
