Sunday Stash Report: Week 10 (Fantasy Football)
The Sunday Stash Report continues ahead of Week 9 after another relatively injury free week. Last week’s Stash Report advised the pickups of Curtis Samuel and Devontae Booker, who could find themselves with increased value sooner rather than later. Fantasy owners are fresh off another week of injuries, and more underperformance from guys we thought might finally produce (looking at you Doug Martin). In Week 10, the goal of this report shifts a bit. We are now looking solely at the playoffs with the intent to stash players that could potentially help you win championships.
Jimmy G is not in the most appealing of situations. He’s shown elite flashes in limited game action so we have reason to be optimistic. In Weeks 14 and 15, Garoppolo would stand to face the Texans and Titans, two of the worst passing defense in the league this year. Although the 49ers have limited offensive weapons, Garoppolo with Kyle Shanahan is certainly capable of making it work. If your QB situation is less than ideal, Garoppolo is a sneaky stash right now as we look towards the playoffs.
At some point, I have to give it up right? Rex Burkhead has made multiple appearances on this list and here he is again. Mike Gillislee is terrible. Dion Lewis appears to have assumed the primary role with James White remaining on passing downs, but Burkhead actually out-snapped Lewis when the Patriots last played. Burkhead has talent and it’s not impossible that he takes over the goal line role and works his way into more touches. He has championship winning upside if he can touch the ball 10+ times a game.
Denver has to shake something up eventually, right? Right? C.J. Anderson isn’t getting it done. Whatever QB they put under center isn’t getting it done. I’m quite confident Jamaal Charles could get it done, but I’m also quite confident that the incompetent Vance Joseph will never even try. That leaves Devontae Booker. Even if he’s just the primary passing-down back for a team that projects to be trailing a bunch, he could emerge as an RB2. That’s good enough for me.
The Bears don’t have anyone capable of catching passes. Why not Tre McBride? He led all WRs in snaps in the Bears’ last game before the bye. The schedule is mostly favorable from here on out. McBride could very well be the number one WR. That’s usually good enough for some fantasy value.
