As week eleven nears, we are less than a month away from the fantasy playoffs for most dynasty leagues. By now, you should have a very good idea if your team is a contender or a builder. As I’ve mentioned many times recently, regardless of which group you associate with, you should be making moves to improve your team.
For those teams not destined for the playoffs this season, it is time to begin looking for ways to improve your chances for a turnaround in 2016. One relatively easy component of the plan is to maximize your roster upside via the waiver wire. Over the past few days, I have been asked several times for recommendations of players to stash, with eyes toward the future.
I scoured my leagues and used MyFantasyLeague ownership data to come up with a list of players you might want to stash at the end of your bench. The ownership percentages I will quote come from all MFL leagues, including both dynasty and redraft. Because of this, I have only considered players owned in 20% or less of all leagues.
Often times, leagues feature such shallow rosters that dynasty owners can not afford to hold onto players once they have suffered a season ending injury. In other cases, a certain owner may just give up on an injured player and dump them on the waiver wire. Here are a few players who should return to full strength in 2016.
