Right now if you’re in a dynasty league you’re doing one of two things; either you are planning to add some final touches to your playoff roster or you are already planning for next year.
Last week I wrote about some players to pick up for next year’s roster such as Chris Ivory and Ryan Broyles. This week we’re going to look at some players that might help to add depth to your roster to make a long playoff run this season.source: Al Jersey, CC
Cedric Benson RB GB – Currently on the injured reserve, he is due to come back in Week 14, which is the start of most Fantasy playoffs. I know it’s only week 11, but as we get closer there will be more hype surrounding him and it will lessen your chances of picking him up on the waivers. The Packers will play Detroit in week 14, the Bears week 15 and Tennessee week 16. He’ll be a good sub if one of your starting RB’s go down. Currently he is only owned in 10% of Yahoo leagues.
Beanie Wells RB ARZ– Currently is on the IR and is set to return against St. Louis in week 12. The Arizona running game doesn’t have any consistency, so hopefully Wells can get the Cards back on track and help his team down the stretch. Wells posses great strength to power the ball through the line and will definitely help the team in short yardage situations. Wells is currently only owned in 21% of Yahoo leagues.
Carson Palmer QB OAK – Palmer is starting to heat up and would be a nice back-up type QB for the playoffs run. He is starting to gel with his receivers and his tight ends. The raiders have a nice schedule during Fantasy Playoffs with Kansas City in week 15 and Carolina in week 16. Palmer is currently owend in half of fantasy leagues.
Danario Alexander WR SD – Just signed a couple weeks ago, Alexander replaced the injured Robert Meachem in the starting roster and has impressed the coaches enough to continue to start him over Meachem. There is some concern over his knees, but he looks healthy on the playing field and looks hungry for more touches. The first catch in last week’s game against Tampa, Alexander broke a tackle and turned up field for 80 yards and a score so we know he has big play capability. Currently he is only owned in 6% of Yahoo leagues.
Riding under the Fantasy Waiver wire
Golden Tate WR SEA – Tate was drawing comparison to Steve Smith (CAR) when he first entered the league but was very ineffective in his first two years. Tate looks a lot more comfortable in the offense and has a reliable QB throwing him the ball. Tate is fast, runs good routes and has great hands. The Seahawks are on bye this week, but face Miami, Chicago, Arizona, and Buffalo down the stretch, which could translate into big production from the third year player. He is worth a stash in PPR leagues and is currently only owned in 23% of leagues.
Thanks again for reading and I hope some of my picks have helped you in your Fantasy Leagues. Good luck this week!
