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 6 – Chiefs hold off Raiders, 24-7

  • Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor had his worst game of the year, going 18 of 34 for 216 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. In his defense, he was on the road playing a good defense. He should bounce back next game.
  • Raiders receiver Denarius Moore had another solid outing with five catches for 82 yards. He’s currently on pace for over 1,000 and continues to be Oakland’s only viable option in the passing game.
  • The Chiefs defense had an incredible game, fantasy-wise. The biggest contributor was linebacker Tamba Hali with 3.5 sacks, three tackles for a loss to go along with four tackles. Hali has 7.5 sacks on the season and has been a main piece of the very good Chiefs defense. At 29, his window is smaller than others but he could still be had on the cheap. 

Dynasty Recap – Week 4 – Chiefs down Giants, 31-7

  • The Giants as a team continue to look bad. Eli Manning threw for less than 50% with a 5.9 YPA. Manning needs improvement on his line and running game before he gets back to sea level.
  • Additionally, the Giants played from behind most of the game which eliminated the running game. David Wilson only had 13 carries which won’t be productive for anyone. If he doesn’t get a chance to prove himself, he’ll never fulfill his full potential.
  • The lone bright spot for New York was Victor Cruz and his 16 targets and 10 catches. Re-signed in the off-season, Cruz is set up to be a dynasty stud for many years to come.
  • Chiefs tight end Sean McGrath had five catches for 64 yards and a touchdown. This is just a preview of what Travis Kelce can do if he ever gets healthy.
  • Chiefs receiver Donny Avery only caught two balls on 10 targets. Any illusions about Avery contributing to the offense should cease. Kansas City should continue to look for a second receiver.
  • Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali was the linebacker du jour with two sacks and a tackle for a loss. With the exception of Derrick Johnson and his tackles, there is no consistent linebacker in Kansas City to roll with.
