This week we’re going to do things a little differently since it’s the end of the season and we’re moving on to 2023. For each position, I’m going to name players I would pick up from waivers now as stashes for the off-season. I’m sure a lot of these names will just be cut from your roster by your rookie drafts, but even if one or two guys hit, that’s very worth the stash today.


Players to double-check availability and immediately add:

Jarrett Stidham, QB LV (70% rostered)

Do I believe Stidham will be the starter for the Raiders in 2023? No, not really. But I do believe the team will give him a shot to compete. The Raiders could trade for a quarterback if/when they trade away Derek Carr, or sign a veteran for cheap. They also currently sit in the back half of the top-ten picks in the draft, which means they’ll have to make a decision on Anthony Richardson or Will Levis if they wanted to take a quarterback. If they elect to pass on the position to day two or day three and don’t make a significant move in free agency or in trades, then Stidham would almost assuredly have the first crack at the job and you can either sell for a good ROI on a waiver wire add or see if he’s actually a good play as he just put up 360 yards and three touchdowns against the Niners defense.

Kyle Trask, QB TB (80% rostered)

I mentioned Trask last week as a stash in the event Tom Brady retires or the rumors of him playing elsewhere (New Orleans, Las Vegas) are true, then Trask could see a value bump on what I would imagine be the beginning of a rebuild in Tampa Bay. If anything, you can add Trask now and sell for just a fourth and that would be worth it.

Running Back

Players to double-check availability and immediately add:

JaMycal Hasty, RB JAC (70% rostered)

I don’t know what more to say here that I haven’t said already about Hasty. He’s a restricted free agent, but I would imagine he’s back in Jacksonville on a really cheap tender. He is the direct handcuff to Travis Etienne and all he needs to do is survive the off-season and he’ll stay in that role again in 2023. Roster him now, see what happens, then either cut him in May if they add someone or keep him as a really good handcuff in 2023!

Trestan Ebner, RB CHI (65% rostered)

In a similar situation as Hasty, Ebner could see a value increase depending on what the Bears do in the spring. David Montgomery is a free agent and if he does sign elsewhere and the Bears don’t add anyone in free agency, we’ll have a two-month period of time where Ebner is the RB2 and he could be worth something, even just a fourth. Add him now and decide what to do with him in a couple of months.

DeeJay Dallas, RB SEA (61% rostered)

Like Hasty, Dallas is another direct handcuff to a young, high-volume starter, except he is actually signed through 2023 on his rookie deal. The Seahawks have a ton of picks in 2023 from the Russell Wilson trade, but I highly doubt they draft anyone in the first two-three rounds (where the majority of their picks are). They could draft someone on day three to compete as the RB2 behind Kenneth Walker, but Dallas is already there and already installed into their offense. Like Hasty and Ebner, just add Dallas now and see what happens in the spring.

Wide Receiver

Players to double-check availability and immediately add:

Rashid Shaheed, WR NO (81% rostered)

Over the last few weeks, I have been really interested in Shaheed and his spike in snaps and usage. Since week 13, Shaheed has played multiple games of 60%+ snaps, has seen no fewer than four targets in every game, and caught four or more receptions in three out of four games. This past week against the Eagles, he set career highs in every receiving category with six receptions and 79 yards on six targets. If you take his stats since week 12, his 17-game pace is 65 receptions for 1160 yards and 3-4 touchdowns. That is insane production just chilling on your waiver wire right now.

Sure, the Saints can draft a receiver and now Shaheed is just that really fast team WR3-4, but if they don’t or at least don’t add anyone significant, Shaheed could be in a Marquez Valdes-Scantling role, a Gabriel Davis role, a Donovan Peoples-Jones role. Those guys are rostered in every dynasty league, yet Shaheed is doing the same thing now and he’s on a lot of waiver wires. Again, add now and see what happens in the spring.

Noah Brown, WR DAL (80% rostered)

I just think Brown is a very good NFL wide receiver who could see fantasy relevance if receivers ahead of him on the depth chart get hurt. I do expect Dallas to add a good receiver in the draft to boost their wide receiver corps, but if they don’t Brown could be a solid backend stash throughout the off-season.

Greg Dortch, WR ARI (76% rostered)

This Cardinals team could look a lot different in 2023 top-to-bottom. There could be major front office changes, coaching staff changes, player changes, and this team could be looking at a mini rebuild as Kyler Murray recovers from the ACL injury. There are already rumors that DeAndre Hopkins could be on the move in the spring and if those rumors come true, Dortch becomes the WR3 on this team behind Marquise Brown and Rondale Moore. Again, sure, they could add someone, but Dortch has shown his talents multiple times throughout this season and he could be a part of their mini-rebuild plans as a young, cheap receiver. Add now and see what happens.

Tim Patrick, WR DEN (75% rostered)

Another player I mentioned last week, don’t forget Tim Patrick! The Broncos WR3 tore his ACL before the season started and is now rostered in only 75% of dynasty leagues on MFL. He signed a fairly hefty contract extension and is still signed through 2024, so getting him off waivers now would be a big pickup.

Danny Gray, WR SF (67% rostered)

There’s not really much to say about Gray after a quiet rookie season, but he was drafted in the third round and could see a bigger role in 2023. There are worse players to be stashing at the backend of your roster than Gray.

Tight End

Players to double-check availability and immediately add:

Jake Ferguson, TE DAL (85% rostered)

Another player I mentioned in last week’s article and everything I said last week still applies: Dalton Schultz is a free agent and could sign elsewhere as arguably the best free agent tight end on the market. Ferguson is almost an exact replica of Schultz in terms of measurables and athleticism and could take over as the starting tight end for Dak Prescott.

Albert Okwuegbunam, TE DEN (84% rostered)

How the mighty have fallen. If you didn’t buy into Albert O as a breakout tight end in 2022, good on you, but now he’s a waiver-wire player who can just be added for free, and that is worth doing. In his first game since October 6th, Okweugbunam put up 45 yards on six targets and found paydirt on a 25-yard score. Greg Dulcich is on IR, so he was not in the game, but it was encouraging to see Okwuegbunam have good usage in Denver’s first game without Nathaniel Hackett. I honestly believe a lot of the turmoil for the Broncos this year can be placed on Hackett, and that could be a huge positive for Albert O’s dynasty value. He’s worth an add off the waiver wire on the hope that we were just a year early on his breakout, or at least streamer potential.
