Dynasty Recap – Week 11 – 49ers hang on over Giants,16-10

  • 49ers running back Frank Gore turned back the clock with 95 yards on 19 carries. He showed what can happen if you give him the ball but should still be a non-factor in dynasty leagues next year.
  • Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham continues to impress with six catches for 93 yards. The only downside is he was targeted 13 times, converting less than half. But as long as keeps getting the reps, Beckham is a possible WR2 every week.
  • Giants receiver Rueben Randle had a game-high seven catches for 112 yards on 15 targets. It was a nice game but we expect Randle to be the odd man out in New York next year.
  • 49ers linebacker Chris Borland continues to impress with 13 tackles, 3 passes defended and two interceptions. He’s playing like a LB1 and should have a place in the lineup next year.

  • Top rookies include Sammy Watkins at 12; Mike Evans at 16; Brandin Cooks at 27; Jordan Matthews at 32; Odell Beckham at 34.
  • Justin Blackmon drops from 22 to 31 (and probably further thanks to recent activity); Rueben Randle from 29 to 37 thanks to the drafting of ODB; Markus Wheaton from 40 to 51 thanks to the drafting of rookie Martavius Bryant; Dwayne Bowe  from 39 to 53.

Dynasty Impact – New York Giants select Odell Beckham, Jr., WR

beckhamDynasty Impact: After showing no confidence in Rueben Randle, the Giants pick what many scouts thought was the second best receiver in the draft. Not as tall as Watkins or Evans, ODB has great leaping ability and superior hands. Eli Manning dynasty owners should rejoice that they finally have a compliment to Victor Cruz. Cruz should benefit with less attention with Beckham being in the discussion for second receiver taken off the board in dynasty rookie drafts.

Dynasty Recap – Week 5 – Eagles down Giants, 36-21

  • With Giants quarterback Eli Manning averaging a whopping 40 pass attempts a game, the targets are coming in droves. This week it was Rueben Randle leading the way with 13 to go with six catches and 96 yards. With Hakeem Nicks expected to leave via free agency this year, Randle is the heir apparent to Nick’s spot and should be targeted in dynasty circles.
  • Running back David Wilson had only six carries before leaving with an injury. On the season, Wilson is averaging 3.3 YPC after averaging 5.0 last year. Now could possibly be the best time to pick Wilson off as a buy-low candidate from those fed up with his lack of production.
  • Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson is back to his usual boom-or-bust self with seven catches for 132 and a touchdown. He seems to be the favorite no matter who’s at quarterback, totaling 12 targets when the next highest total was LeSean McCoy at eight.
  • Speaking of targets, rookie Zach Ertz had a career-high three targets and two catches. It remains to be seen where Ertz will fit in as incumbent Brent Celek is still entrenched as the starter and has three more years on his contract. Ertz could also be a buy-low candidate.
  • Quarterback Nick Foles will audition for teams as he takes over for the injured Mike Vick. However, it would seem that, with so many quarterback in 2014’s rookie class, Foles won’t necessarily be able to cash in a la Matt Flynn. I don’t see Foles breaking out.
