Here is a hodge podgery of players you might want to grab for your dynasty teams. Some are sleepier than others and I have no criteria, such as percentage owned, etc…, for who is on this list, but I’m guessing all could be found in someone’s die nasty league. As off season moves come in we’ll see some of these guys lose their upside, but all you can do is try.
Jacoby Jones: He sure is having a lot of trouble living up to his potential, but he does have a lot of potential. His down season should make it easier to grab him for next season when hopefully he stops sucking. With AJ out he did pretty well and has the tools for a #1 receiver.
Emmanuel Sanders: Hines Ward is having trouble warding off old age and Sanders looks like he is next in line, at least for now. He has come up big late in the season and should be the front runner for the #2 slot next season. Hines isn’t going to fall off the face of the earth, but his body could start falling of his bones (gross).
James Jones: Donald Driver stayed intact enough and Jordy Nelson did his part as well in keeping Jones from getting a ton of targets, but Jones, like Jacoby, has the skill set to be a top guy and Driver will some day keel over. Add to that Rodgers’ awesomeness and you have the secret to success.
Earl Bennett: He’s never going to be a huge scorer, but Devin Aromashodu is getting old and Devin Hester is never going to be a reliable receiver. Bennett is still 23 and looks like the long term possession receiver to Knox’s deep threatism. He should be more valuable in PPR leagues.
James Starks: He really is pretty good, but coming off an injury he still isn’t his old self. If he can get back to his college speed, he could be dangerous on the Packers. Ryan Grant will be back so don’t overpay for him.
James Davis: Finding the next Peyton Hillis is not going to be easy, but you’ve got to give it a try if your dynasty benches are deep enough. I like Davis more than Torain and Torain is injury prone. I wouldn’t invest my soul in him, but he’s worth a flier. My soul is worth 3 and a half fliers.
Stephen Williams: This guy is the real deal. He had no chance this season to develop with his long term quarterback, whoever that might be, but if the right situation somehow miraculously happens in Arizona, he could be good and fast and how.
Danario Alexander: He has a ton of upside with his skill set and Sam Bradford at the helm, but his knee issues have to knock him down a peg. His ceiling is Michelangelo great and hopefully a clean, non-surgical offseason will get him on the right track for studliness.
Rashad Jennings: He killed many of us. I mean destroyed all of our dreams and aspirations in one fell swoop of his rottenness. And when I get swooped by rottenness I’m not one to forget, but Jennings is better than that last game showed. MJD is wearing down and Jennings would be his main benefactor if he took a fantasy dirt nap.
Bernard Scott: Cedric Benson will be a free agent this offseason so the Bengals running back shituation could be up for grabs. I don’t really see Scott as a 25 carry kind of guy, but he does have enough ability to be a 15 carry guy and could help you next season.
Jason Hill: With Mike Sims-Walker a free agent, Hill will at least get a shot at being the guy.
Jerome Simpson: He has been a bust for most of his time in the NFL, but went off last week. Maybe the light went on or maybe he just got lucky. But with TO gone and Ocho getting old and no other receivers with his skill set in the running right now, he’s worth a gamble.
Montario Hardesty: Peyton Hillis’ running style wore him down this season and Hardesty will get his shot next year. He looked good in preseason and has a lot of upside.
Mohamed Massoquoi: He’s had some bad quarterbacks throwing to him, but it looks like McCoy could be better than bad.
Demaryius Thomas: Now that he has the greatest QB of all time to throw to him he should be All-World. I am a big fan of DT’s and I think next season he’ll scooch up into the starting rotation.
Jerome Harrison: He’s just too good to not be on somebodies fantasy team. It really is a shame that he’s been jerked around so much in his career. He is getting too old to be worth a ton in dynasty, but if the opportunity presents itself in a high powered Eagles offense, he could shine.
Jimmy Graham: This is a bit of a no-brainer and his recent success might make it hard to get him, but if he is available he is a must add in dynasty.
Jared Cook: The Titans have a nice young set of receivers which could be helped by the emergence of Cook. His upside is too good not to take a flier on. He will be on a lot of sleeper lists next season.
Matt Flynn: Flynn will probably be backing up Rodgers again, but there is always a chance a team will try to pry him away. He’s worth speculating on.
Colt McCoy: He’s probably gone in dynasty, but he has some upside on a team that should continue to improve.
