5 Dynasty Buy Low Targets

It’s critical in dynasty leagues to know the appropriate time to buy and the correct time to sell players. Here are a few guys I’m buying on the cheap.


David Johnson – Johnson was an untouchable asset in nearly every dynasty league just a few months ago. Now due to a bland, run-of-the-mill, lack luster offense led by rookie QB Josh Rosen, the touches for Johnson have dropped and so has his production. I’m buying Johnson on the cheap based solely on the idea that Rosen and the playbook should blossom as Rosen gets more accustomed to the playbook and speed of the NFL.

Devonta Freeman & Ito Smith – Tevin Coleman is as good as gone as his contract is set to expire at the end of the season. The Falcons will bid Coleman farewell and Ito is presumed to take his spot behind Freeman. Through the first 6 weeks Freeman has been hobbled by multiple injuries and only accumulated 68 rushing yards in that time. With the news that Freeman’s latest injury isn’t serious, I’m buying Freeman at a discount before his inevitable bust out game.

Keenan Allen – Allen has only found the end zone once through the first 5 weeks despite averaging 9 targets a game. He had an awful game against the Rams in week 3 but has rebounded since. Allen’s still a WR1 in my book and if anyone is selling him for less, I’m more than happy to have him on my squad.

Le’Veon Bell – Bell is expected to return week 8 after ending his holdout. Bell has rubbed many fantasy owners the wrong way but, let’s not forget that he’s a 26 year old, generational talent. The worst case scenario for this year is that him and James Conner split the workload. He’s worn out his welcome in Pittsburgh and will most likely join a new team in 2019 where I expect him to resume his role as a top-tier RB1. If you get the chance to acquire him at the price of a lower-tier RB1 or less, you should smash that accept button immediately.
