Sunday Stash Report: Week 12 (Fantasy Football)

J.D. McKissic’s talent should eventually win out in this unimpressive Seattle backfield

The Sunday Stash Report continues ahead of Week 12 after another relatively injury free week. Last week’s Stash Report may have hit on Keelan Cole, who looks like a viable WR4 play going forward. Fantasy owners are fresh off another week of injuries, and more underperformance from guys we thought might finally produce (looking at you yet again Doug Martin).

In Week 10, the goal of this report shifted a bit. We are now looking solely at the playoffs with the intent to stash players that could potentially help you win championships.

J.D. McKissic (RB – SEA)
He’s back! The Seahawks carousel of RBs continues.

Quick recap: Seattle signed Eddie Lacy for reasons that remain a mystery to the entire football universe. Chris Carson dazzled in the preseason and became the starter. Carson broke his leg. Lacy got another chance and failed miserably. Thomas Rawls was given a chance. He failed. C.J. Prosise was spotted briefly, but then promptly got hurt. Lacy was given another chance. Then Rawls. Then Lacy again. Then they signed Mike Davis and he looked great. So, of course, he hurt his groin. Rawls was inactive. Lacy continued to fail.

Seriously, how is Lacy employed by an NFL team? With Paul Perkins finally a weekly inactive and Rob Kelley on IR, Lacy is the worst RB in the NFL. I would rather sign every other RB on every other team than Lacy. That brings us ever so slowly to J.D. McKissic.

He is by far the most explosive RB on the team. He may not be built to handle a heavy workload, but if he can just be on the field the most with Russell Wilson, that’s enough to be worth owning and potentially starting.

Corey Clement (RB – PHI)
This is a real playoff dart throw. I do not expect this to amount to anything. Corey Clement is just a guy in a three-way timeshare. However, Jay Ajayi has never been the epitome of health, and the Eagles face the Giants and Raiders in Weeks 15 and 16.

If something were to happen to Ajayi, Clement would be the most likely starter. Doug Pederson apparently has no intentions of moving away from his RBBC, but if one player is taken away from him, any increase in usage will lead to a rise in fantasy value.

Kenny Golladay (WR – DET)
This is another playoff dart throw. Kenny Golladay is just a playmaker and he is taking targets away from Golden Tate and Marvin Jones. All it would take is an injury to one or just a couple more splash plays from Golladay, and he could be useful down the stretch.

We’re always gambling here, but we want to put small wagers on guys that could potentially have big returns. Golladay falls into that category.

Byron Marshall (RB – WAS)
The Redskins are running out of running backs. Byron Marshall currently has no value. However, if Samaje Perine were to suffer a similar fate to Chris Thompson or Rob Kelly, Jay Gruden would have no choice but to turn to Marshall.

This late in the season, it is doubtful that we will find any more breakout guys. Instead, we look to the “one clear step away” guys.

Marshall’s path to fantasy relevance is obvious and only requires one unfortunate event. I’m a big Perine fan so I hope this doesn’t happen, but I’m also a realist who plans for the worst.

Keelan Cole (WR – JAX)
Not enough of you picked him up last week, so he’s here again. Keelan Cole has 19 targets over his past three games.

He’s the number two WR on Jacksonville right now. He does not have a difficult matchup the rest of the season. Go get him.
