The 2016 may not have had the most talent at the top of the draft but the depth was absolutely there. Late round dynasty finds are pivotal to being consistently competitive. There were players taken in round five or later that can impact your fantasy football team in the coming seasons including these five names. The best part is they are all coming off the board in the late rounds for rookie drafts and dynasty start-ups. Target these guys in drafts and thank me later.

Keyarris Garrett | WR | Carolina Panthers

Despite going undrafted Keyarris Garrett is a name fantasy owners should know especially in dynasty formats. He will fit this offense very well. He is a vertical passing threat with speed that should play a role very similar to Ted Ginn Jr whose contract will expire at the end of the season. Devin Funchess and Kelvin Benjamin are both bigger possession type receivers that should occupy the defense’s attention. Assuming Garrett can make an impression on the coaches this season he has the ability to have a well-defined role in year two.

Alex Collins | RB | Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks took not one but two running backs in the 2016 NFL Draft. They first took C.J. Prosise in the third round who has a ton of potential especially in third down passing situations. They took Alex Collins in the 5th round who is physical runner that fits this system nicely. There is plenty of work to go around between the retirement of Marshawn Lynch and Thomas Rawls returning from injury. The Seahawks taking two running backs in the first 5 rounds says a lot about their confidence on Rawls returning to form. Collins can be had late in rookie drafts and dynasty start-ups. He is worth a stash for sure.

Wendell Smallwood | RB | Philadelphia Eagles

So far this off season the Philadelphia Eagles sent DeMarco Murray to the Titans in a trade and did nothing in free agency. The only running back they took was Wendell Smallwood out of West Virginia. He could easily find snaps in his rookie season when Ryan Mathews gets hurt. Mathews has only played a full season one time in his 6 year career. He has only eclipsed 200 carries twice in those 6 years. Smallwood is physical runner that would compliment Darren Sproles well. He could develop with the young Eagle offense and be a legit fantasy option sooner than later.

D.J. Foster | WR | New England Patriots

D.J. Foster could not have gone to a better situation for his skill set. Foster is a versatile player that played both running back and wide receiver during his time at Arizona State. Bill Belichick should have fun finding ways to get him on the field. He could fill in for Dion Lewis in spots or spend time as a traditional wideout both in the slot and out wide. He is practically free in all leagues and is well worth a stash.

Paul Perkins | RB | New York Giants

Paul Perkins is another talented running back that has gone to a fantastic situation. The New York Giants have a stockpile of not very good running backs led by Andre Williams and Rashad Jennings. Shane Vereen is a great complimentary back that could fit nicely with any downhill runner. Perkins isn’t crazy explosive but can be productive. He has good hands also which would make him a factor in the passing game. His pass blocking is decent enough so he won’t have to come off the field in 2 min situations.
