Dynasty Fantasy Football Six Pack: Week 17 Storylines to Watch

Corey Spala discusses some dynasty-relevant storylines this week.

Derek Carr

Happy Championship week! If you made it, best of luck. If you did not, well, then do better. I joke. I only made the Championship in three of nine leagues so I understand both sides here. We might have a rebuilding team or a team lost due to injury with no recovery. I am excited to kick off the “off-season” after this week.

Let’s look at six storylines to pay attention to this week.


Derek Carr has been benched by the Las Vegas Raiders and will take time away from the team for the last two weeks of the season. Jarrett Stidham will make his first career start. Coach Josh McDaniels says he wants to evaluate the position moving forward - yes, with Stidham, who is making his first career start after being drafted in 2019.

On surface level, this move leaves questions. It seems the Raiders are protecting their pockets since Carr has injury guarantees. They are able to move on from the quarterback relatively easily - they will save $23.6m, $36.4m, and $39.4m with his release.

It seems Carr will find a new home in 2023. This makes me wonder, what will happen to Davante Adams?

The last paragraph of the fools gold section is a bit confusing/contradicting. It appears to state that there should be minimal excitement about investing in RBs like Allgeier, but then says that you should be investing in assets like him in your rookie drafts. Is there a point of clarification you can make on this?

My take is that he’s a prime example of a sell high candidate, and that’s what I believe this portion of the article was trying to get at.

I was wondering the same… do you mean don’t buy/overpay for TA now, but yes draft these guys and flip for profit when they do what he’s done (and do it before the following draft)?

Yeah people likely got Allgeier in the late 2nd/early 3rd range. These are the guys that have limited career upside and are easily replaced, but can flash here and there. If anyone wants to buy Allgeier for a late 1st or early 2nd, I feel like that would be a steal, and how you improve in the long run. That’s what I feel the author is trying to say, but we’ll see if there’s a clarification he can make.
