Sunday Stash Report: Week 13 (Fantasy Football)
The Sunday Stash Report continues ahead of Week 13 after another relatively injury free week. Last week’s Stash Report was pretty empty, at least so far. Fantasy owners are fresh off another week of injuries, and more underperformance from guys we thought might finally produce (looking at you Doug Baldwin).
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.
Senorise Perry (RB – MIA)
Who? Yeah, I had the same reaction when Damien Williams went down and I checked the Dolphins’ depth chart to see what would happen if Kenyan Drake suffered a similar fate. The answer is Perry. I know nothing about this guy and I can’t imagine he’s all that good, but if Drake gets hurt, this random fourth stringer will suddenly find himself atop the depth chart and that is enough to make him worth a stash for those with the ability to do so. He fits right into “one step away” approach with a clear one step path to usage if Drake gets hurt.
Tyrell Williams (WR – LAC)
I know he’s completely ignored by Philip Rivers along with every other Chargers WR not named Keenan Allen, but hear me out. First, there’s the obvious – Allen is always at risk to get hurt at any time and we’ve seen what Tyrell Williams can do when he’s the only option. The man is still immensely talented. All he needs is increased volume…or Allen to face a slew of shutdown corners that force Rivers to look elsewhere. We just may have a shot at the latter. Williams has been dropped in almost all redraft leagues so the cost is nothing on a guy we know can produce when given the opportunity.
D.J. Foster (RB – ARI)
The Cardinals should face negative game script in their next three games. Adrian Peterson can’t catch passes. With Andre Ellington now on the Texans, D.J. Foster is the passing down back. His snap count will directly correlate with how much the Cardinals have to throw. My guess is that will be a fair amount. Foster is an ex-Patriot and has talent. He could be a sneaky useful asset if he gets enough work.
*In fairness, this stash became less of a stash and more of a pickup once AP didn’t practice the past three days.
Trent Taylor (WR – SF)
Trent Taylor has been here before and it didn’t work out, but now the circumstances seem more favorable. Jimmy Garoppolo is going to start for the rest of the year and he has experience working with Wes Welker type slot receiver from his time in New England. Taylor can be Garoppolo’s Julian Edelman – a quick, shifty slot man that works on timing routes. Taylor is not going to wow anyone with yardage or splash plays, but he can be a target vacuum underneath.
Travaris Cadet (RB – BUF)
The Bills have already been shuffling in their satellite backs more than normal this season in an effort to keep LeSean McCoy fresh. Well, Shady popped up on the injury report Thursday with a knee issue and didn’t practice Friday. He was left off the final injury report so he’s clearly playing Sunday, but I am very concerned that he does not make it through the game and potentially ends up on IR. Yes, I’m that worried. Travaris Cadet is the direct beneficiary of a McCoy injury and is well worth a speculative add.
