Dynasty Fantasy Football Players to Stash for 2021

on

It’s that time of year again. Time to hope and pray our failing dynasty teams can make a miraculous turnaround. And time for the already stacked to build depth. We are here to help with some dynasty fantasy football players to stash for 2021.

For the patient man, now is the time to be hoarding rookie picks for 2021 or later. For help with knowing who to draft check out our NFL draft coverage here at Fantasy Six Pack leading up to the draft. We start with our first Mock Draft.

That is months away. For people like me who need immediate gratification, it’s time to start the cycle of wild speculation and hoping for the best.

You will see a lot of trade offers, speculation, and moves. It’s important to read and do your best to fade the noise at this critical time in the offseason. In this article I will be breaking down some players I believe are stashes with upside for the 2021 season and beyond.

The NFL rookies will be highly coveted players in your dynasty leagues too.

Dynasty Fantasy Football Players to Stash for 2021

Devin Asiasi, TE, New England Patriots

Third round pedigree, Bill Belichick offense. What’s not to love? After a disappointing season in 2020, Asiasi will be a major sleeper for next season. For years, since the departure of Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots have lacked production at the tight end position. In comes Asiasi.

With Cam Newton being all but out of the door for next season and the Patriots having the 15th overall draft pick they could bring in a young QB to set the franchise right. It’s no secret that young QBs love the tight end position. You do the math, young QB and young high upside tight end equals great production.

Asiasi is one of my favorite low-end stashes for the 2021 season and beyond. The team lacks pass catchers and Asiasi showed flashes of reliability.

Cam Sims Jr, WR, Washington Football Team

It was a great 2020 season for Sims and the Football team. They showed heart, fight, and overall toughness. At times, Sims Jr. flashed high upside, quick feet, and looks the part of an NFL receiver.

In the Football Teams playoff game against the Buccaneers, Sims had an explosive game. He had an outstanding seven receptions for 104 yards. Very impressive, it’s not just the playoffs it’s what he did in the regular season. He steadily performed better and better throughout.

Sims looks like a real player and a guy who should stick around in Washington. With the potential of a new QB being on the way, the stock of Sims could rise even more.

Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Washington Football Team

It’s easy to forget about a man who spent all of 2020 on injured reserve. It’s also easy to forget a guy who was merely a fourth-round draft pick. But I’m not forgetting about the young stud out of Liberty. Do you know why?

Well, that’s because of how electric Gandy-Golden was in college as small-time university Liberty. Golden caught 150 receptions for 2433 yards, across only two college seasons. The electric runner also had 20 total touchdowns.

Golden is the perfect complement lining up on the other side of star receiver Terry McLaurin. After the most recent playoff game for Washington, it’s clear they need help at receiver and Golden is the man for the job.

Quintez Cephus, WR, Detroit Lions

Marvin Hall was waived late in the year to reward the young rookie Cephus with more playing time. Now, potentially star receiver Kenny Golladay could walk in free agency. If that’s the case that leaves the Lions with Cephus and Marvin Jones at receiver. Just based on pure volume alone that vaults Cephus into WR3 territory.

Cephus flashed at points of the season showing big-play potential. He hauled in a few long bomb touchdowns from a banged-up Stafford. With the Lions loading up this season and the departure of Golladay immanent, things are starting to open up for Cephus.

Anthony Firkser, TE, Tennessee Titans

Not so much of a household name but in 2021 you may know exactly who he is. With tight end Jonnu Smith and receiver Corey Davis heading to pending free agency, we may see the Titans turn to Firkser.

In his snaps this season he has looked more than serviceable. In fact, in a game without Jonnu Smith this season he racked up eight receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown.

Jonnu Smith hasn’t provided much for the Titans this season. Firkser has and on a cheap contract, and I believe they should look for him to be the starter next season. If they do let Smith go I’m predicting a top-10 performance out of Firkser next season.

Donald Parham, WR, Los Angeles Chargers

What’s not to love about this guy? He’s 6’8 and get’s to play with Justin Herbert. That’s right, rookie of the year, Justin Herbert. Oh, and did I mention that Hunter Henry is headed to free agency? That should give you a tickle for this guy just right there alone.

Let’s also not mention that he and Herbert seem to have a connection. They connected on a few big plays and touchdown on the 2020 season.

Parham flashed big-play potential and with Mike Williams constantly banged up along with Henry’s free agency departure pending we could see Parham step into a legitimate WR2 role. The big body and massive hands make him a stud and a major buy low and stash in fantasy.

Mecole Hardman, WR, Kansas City Chiefs

This is it for me, I along with others believed that Hardman was drafted to take the place of star receiver Tyreek Hill. We were wrong, it may not even seem like Hardman is the number two receiver. Unfortunately, Sammy Watkins has held that spot down for most of the year, and even when he was hurt, Demarcus Robinson was the receiver filling in for Watkins

When given the chance, Hardman hasn’t performed to his potential. His burner speed is enough for me to hold him for now. Especially with Mahomes as his QB and Watkins being potentially gone in 2021 due to free agency. I’m buying the upside and stashing him with Tyreek Hill potential.

Eno Benjamin, RB, Arizona Cardinals

Last but certainly not least we get Benjamin. In 2020, Benjamin failed to take a snap but don’t lose hope. Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds lead the way for the Cardinals rushing attack, Both looked fine but not great.

The thing is Drake is a pending free agent who will likely be heading to a new team next season and in 2022, Edmonds is a free agent.

Benjamin was a great back and his stats in college prove it. During his sophomore season, he had over 1,600 rushing yards at Arizona State and topped 1,000 yards in his junior season.

 


Starting running backs for cheap don’t come often but here is one with Benjamin. Buy him now and reap the rewards later!
