9 Dynasty Players to Stash for 2019

on

Already out of contention for your dynasty league this season?

No reason to worry, the waiver claims never stop and neither should you. The next big name might already be available.

Here are a few ideas for players that with a little luck, could make a big impact on your team next year that are likely still available now.

Dan Arnold, TE, New Orleans Saints

Literally, anybody can be fantasy relevant in this offense if there is a reason to believe they have a clear path to touches. And the tight end is a position worth taking a low-cost gamble on. The Saints have an offense that is basically unstoppable and should be fine with Brees under center for the next few years.

Arnold has been a subject of interest in deeper redraft leagues for a few weeks now. As of right now he is one of four tight ends on the team and Ben Watson is currently the top receiving option.

Next year, however, Arnold will be the only tight end still under contract. And while there will still be competition, his main competition Watson will be turning 38 next season (or 72 in tight end years).

Keith Kirkwood/Austin Carr, WR, New Orleans Saints

As I said anybody can be relevant in this offense. The Saints, while very efficient don’t have a lot of depth at the receiver position. If they have any injuries Kirkwood or Carr could see meaningful snaps.

Cameron Meredith hasn’t quite panned out as well as they had hoped. Ted Ginn isn’t the young man he used to be and might not be 100% even after returning from IR so the third receiver position is open.

Kirkwood had a slightly better combine than Carr so he gets the slight edge in my opinion. But both are solid options.

Chris Warren, RB, Oakland Raiders

Warren was a rising star in the preseason before he got injured. And with Gruden’s three first round picks this team could be pretty different looking next year.

In addition to the draft picks, both Doug Martin and Marshawn Lynch are in contract years. So while we have no idea what the team may look like, we are all well aware Gruden wants to run the ball like it’s 1998.

Chris Warren is one of my favorite targets on this list because he is the least likely to be replaced in the draft and free agency. The Raiders need help all over the field. Most pressing would be defense and wide receiver so Gruden is less likely to focus on a running back.

Raheem Mostert, RB, San Francisco 49ers

There is a reason all of the 49ers are doing well despite being a random assortment of players. The secret is Kyle Shanahan’s system.

It’s clear that even in a committee situation these backs are still productive and it’s worth trying to have one. There is also rumors swirling that because of the success of Matt Breida and Mostert this year, when healthy, they will waive Jerick McKinnon.

If he is available in your league he is worth an immediate add. Mostert got hurt during his breakout game so there might be a chance he is still available.

DaeSean Hamilton/Tim Patrick, WR, Denver Broncos

Emanuel Sanders tore his Achilles and he might not be young enough to bounce back to full strength. Clearly, Courtland Sutton will be the guy, but Keenum has proven capable of supporting two receivers before.

Hamilton seems to be the 3rd receiver and plays 24% of the snaps as of Week 13. Patrick has earned some playing time as well playing 21% of the snaps. Week 14 will tell us a clearer picture of their standings with the team.

Since the Sanders injury has made headlines you likely won’t get DaeSean Hamilton by the time this is published, but Patrick is still a solid addition.

Chad Williams, WR, Arizona Cardinals

Christian Kirk is hurt and there’s no telling what the plan is with Fitz. The Cardinals are a bad offense, but when Rosen develops and the coaching problems are solved they should be fantasy relevant.

Williams is third on the team in snap count and possibly without Fitz next season, he could provide decent value as a WR2 on a budding offense.

Jake Kumerow, WR, Green Bay Packers

Earlier in the season Rodgers expressed his irritation with the rookie receivers. But one player he singled out as having the best work ethic was Jake Kumerow.

Kumerow is in an interesting spot with the possibility of Randall Cobb being a cap hit this offseason. If he can return to true Rodgers form in the new system they’ll be adopting, we know there can be multiple fantasy relevant receivers.

With Kumerow on your bench, you could be one injury away from a meaningful contributor next year.
