Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Stash Targets
Tank Bigsby‘s role has not grown at all this season behind Travis Etienne, leaving Bigsby as a stash-only player. The rookie is plenty talented and could still rise to be a thunder to Etienne’s lightning, but that certainly remains to be seen.
Rico Dowdle looked a bit more pedestrian in Dallas’ Week 4 blowout win over New England than he did against the Cardinals in Week 3. That should not shake the resolve around Dowdle taking on a pivotal role if Tony Pollard were to miss time. Dowdle is well-rounded and trusted by the Cowboys’ coaching staff.
Elijah Mitchell was ruled out in Week 4 with a knee injury, and it was Jordan Mason who assumed the miniscule supporting role behind Christian McCaffrey‘s prolific day. Mitchell is still the preferred stash whose role would be elevated in a massive way if CMC ever missed time. Mason is more of a special teams fill-in — unless Mitchell’s knee injury is more serious than previously thought.
If you blinked, you missed a nice cameo performance by Zamir White in Week 4. He looked very explosive in relief of Josh Jacobs — much better than Amir Abdullah. Stash White in deep bench leagues in hopes he sees a blossoming role.
