Dynasty Football Stock Guide: Week Four Waivers

Stefon Diggs

Dynasty football is all about maximizing value by buying low and selling high. These three players could be available for cheap to help your dynasty team. Plus, one player worth selling high on following the second week of the football season. The fourth in a weekly series for the 2015 NFL season, here is the Dynasty Stock Guide, week four addition.

 

Buy Low

Jamison Crowder (WR, Washington Redskins)

Crowder is a fourth round rookie out of Duke this season in Washington and led the team in targets (12) during their Week Four win against the Eagles. Crowder is moving into an expanded role with the team, as head coach Jay Gruden announced on Monday that he is the team’s starting slot receiver. The Washington offense is not what many would call high octane, but Crowder is a player who logged a 7 reception and 65 yard performance in his first game with extended snaps. With DeSean Jackson still injured and Jordan Reed unsurprisingly set to miss time, Crowder has the chance to establish himself as the immediate number two option behind Pierre Garcon in the immediate future, as well as the long term option to replace Garcon should the Redskins move on from his $7.6 million 2016 cap hit. He’s more than likely available in most dynasty leagues or available for a late round pick in deeper leagues. He provides a decent stash and could increase value if the quarterback situation ever improves in Washington.

 

Stefon Diggs (WR, Minnesota Vikings)

Diggs made his NFL debut Saturday against the Broncos, and logged a respectable line of 6 receptions for 87 yards on 10 targets. With Charles Johnson out due to injury, Diggs had a chance to flash against one of the top cornerback duos in the NFL. With Johnson likely to return soon it’s safe to assume less production coming out of Diggs. However, the Vikings receiving corps is filled with replacement level players and Diggs showed some real ability last Sunday, so it’s unlikely he’s away for long. Diggs is the ideal deep dynasty stash, as he is only 21 years old with some serious athletic ability in space. He could become an ideal compliment to the downfield abilities of Mike Wallace in the Minnesota offense as he matures as a player. He’s well worth the waiver claim if he’s available in your league.

 

Willie Snead (WR, New Orleans Saints)

I’ve written about Snead before in my week two edition of this series but it bares repeating. His snaps are only going up while fellow dynasty deep addition Brandon Coleman has been losing time to the young Ball State product. Snead was in on 48 snaps against the Cowboys (out of a possible 73) while Coleman only logged 19 snaps. With Drew Brees back to near full heath Snead has the chance to be productive as the number two in this offense behind Brandin Cooks. Only 22 years old, if Snead finds a role in New Orleans he could provide value for a very long time. He’s coming off a very solid game in which he logged 89 yards on 6 receptions.

 

Sell High

Larry Fitzgerald (WR, Arizona Cardinals)

Please do not go out and get what you can get for Fitzgerald because you see his name here. Fitzgerald is lighting the fantasy football landscape on fire this season, and if you’re a contender for a championship he’s the surprise you needed at your WR2 spot to make a run at the title. However, if you find yourself with an injured and aging team that likely has little to no chance at the title unloading Fitzgerald could jumpstart your rebuild by adding youth and upside to your roster. Fitzgerald is currently the third highest PPR scoring player at any position, and is the second receiver behind only Julio Jones. While certainly not a must sell it’s unlikely his value could be any higher than it is at the moment.
