Welcome to the Dynasty Watch. For those of you playing in deep dynasty leagues, this is where we’ll help you keep track of some bench stashes. These are players who have a small chance of becoming regular contributors, but for the few that do, we’ll try and help you beat your league-mates to the punch.
We’ll chronicle any upticks in usage or production each week, so be sure to read the previous Dynasty Watch articles to get a season-long picture.
None of note.
Alex Collins (Sea) — With Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde still out, it was Collins who took the lead role, gaining 42 yards and TD on 11 carries. Collins looked like the player he was when he flashed with the Ravens a few years back, so he may be worth a stash as this backfield continues to have no clear option behind the injured Carson and Hyde.
Jalen Guyton (LAC) — Guyton had been a 2-3 target deep threat option so far, but in Week 10 he saw 6 targets. He caught 4 of those targets for 24 yards, continuing to play both outside and in the slot. Whether or not he keeps that range of targets going forward or falls back to a twice-a-game deep shot option will tell us a lot about his prospects of ascending in this offense.
Cam Sims (Was) — Bye weeks are a chance for teams to adjust roles and we may have seen exactly that over the past two weeks. Sims backed up his Week 9 output of 3/110 with a 4/54 Week 10. After playing single-digit snaps through the first six weeks, Sims now has 61, 40, and 83 snaps played in his last three weeks. He could be cementing his position as the No. 2 receiver in Washington.
Isaiah Wright (Was) — Wright caught all 6 of his targets for 59 yards, giving him 9/89 on 9 targets in his two games since the bye (9.9 YPC). It’s the fourth time in six games that Wright has seen at least 5 targets, but he still has some climbing to do to establish himself as the 2nd or 3rd wideout behind Terry McLaurin.
Marvin Hall (Det) — Hall caught 2 passes on 3 targets for 61 yards and a TD while Kenny Golladay (hip) missed another game. With Golladay out over the last three games, Hall turned 15 targets into 202 yards and a score.
