One thing I always say to newer dynasty managers is that you should always be churning the bottom of your roster. There’s always someone out there with an upside or with a chance that they didn’t have last week. Drop the guy that you’ve been waiting to break out and try someone new instead. Trust me, it’ll be fun. Here are some guys I’ve been adding this week that could help my roster pay off down the road.

Week 4 Dynasty Fantasy Football Stashes
Lance is probably owned in way too many leagues to call him a pure stash, but since he can be acquired for cheap in a trade, I’m counting on it. There’s a chance that current Cowboys QB Dak Prescott gets benched in some games this year, either due to being way ahead or way behind. Prescott didn’t play well against the Cardinals in Week 3 and being “America’s Team” means you have more eyes on you than maybe you should. At some point, Lance could sneak into your Superflex spot, and when that happens he will almost definitely have a lot to prove.
Running backs are really tough to predict week to week, especially with how injured they tend to get. That being said, current Rams starter Kyren Williams looks to be the real deal. A lot of dynasty managers, including myself, ran to the waivers to grab Ronnie Rivers, but Evans could be the guy. He was a healthy scratch in Week 3 and could be on waivers even in shallower leagues. This is a perfect time to snag him and drop someone else on your roster who’s disappointed. I like the talent that Evans has, he just needs the opportunity. That can happen at any time.
The Cardinals might be a chaotic dumpster fire right now, but they still have rosterable players for dynasty. One of whom is Keaontay Ingram, backup running back to 28-year-old James Conner. If Conner were to miss time, as he has in years past, all signs point to Ingram being the obvious replacement. Ingram’s only gotten 12 carries on the year for 15 yards so he hasn’t shown much at all yet, but if given the chance, I think he could. Ingram is on waivers in leagues and should be a definite candidate for the last spot on your dynasty roster. He’s got a job, that’s more than some players that are currently rostered more often, such as Leonard Fournette or James Robinson.
Last week I called out Tank Dell for the Texans as a good stash and boy did that turn out to be a good choice. I said he was a bad candidate due to how popular he already was, but the process was sound. This week I’m picking his teammate in Woods, Dynasty ECR WR98. Woods is much older but is also producing at a high value for what he’s being valued for in dynasty. Woods has the most targets on the team with 25 and has 15 receptions, tied with Dell and Nico Collins. Yet, due to his age, Woods is being ignored. I’m fine adding him in a trade as a toss-in and putting him in my flex depending on the matchup. You can definitely do worse at receiver this year.
Believe it or not, Jones has more touchdowns than teammate Ja’Marr Chase, CeeDee Lamb, and Chris Olave through three weeks who all have zero TDs on the year. Sure, Jones’ came on a punt return, but it still counts. The Bengals clearly like what they see in him but due to all of the talent ahead of him on the depth chart, I’m not sure he’ll see a lot of offensive playing time this year. This makes him the perfect stash option though as Higgins and Boyd could both be gone in a year, leaving Jones with a clear path to relevancy. Add him now if you can afford the roster spot and maybe you’ll get rewarded in the long run.
I had high hopes for McBride this year, but due to the wild up-and-down offense that the Cardinals play, it just hasn’t materialized yet. But that’s okay, dynasty is a long game. TE Zach Ertz can’t play forever, and at some point, this offense might want to see what they have in their younger talent. This would bode very well for McBride who is only 23 and in his second year. I much prefer stashing tight ends to receivers since they sometimes take longer to develop and have a harder path to starting in the offense. That being said, McBride is averaging 11.4 yards per reception through three games on just 5 catches. This makes me wonder if his breakout game could be sooner than we thought.
